45%...completion percentage for Austin Peay QB Jake Ryan...slightly below Scott Tolzien's 74% completion percentage heading into Saturday's game. Ryan has completed just 34 of 75 passes in 3 games with 3 TD's and 5 Ints. In his only game vs a D-1 opponent (Middle Tennessee St) Ryan connected on just 16 of his 40 pass attempts.
172....the number of offensive plays ran by Middle Tennessee St. and Austin Peay in MTSU's 56-33 win earlier this season. To put that number in perspective- it's about the equivalent of a 6 quarter Badger game (UW's games have averaged 123 offensive snaps between both teams). MTSU ran 96 plays (the Badgers average 68 plays) and racked up 654 yards of total offense including 32 first downs while averaging over 7 yards per play.
and a re-run from the pre-season in case you missed it:
72,532....Total attendance last season (11 games) for Austin Peay. After playing in front of an average crowd of 6,593 last season, the Governors will visit Camp Randall Stadium this weekend where UW's average attendance in 2009 was 80,109.
