Bouncing Back – teams off a loss playing a lesser opponent.
I know this is what you all came for. The famous “list”. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again. Teams off a loss from a big conference playing a far inferior opponent have a good track record laying it on those teams in a bounce back game. Sometimes to the tune of putting up 50,60,even 70 points in these spots.
Now, as I always say, I think situations matter… a lot. I also very carefully label “far inferior” opponents. For example… Oregon is off a loss, however Nevada showed it’s very much a decent team. So that’s not an auto play that fits into the situation for a huge bounce back win.
