    CU - 37:10
    USC - 22:50

    We have the ball for 15 minutes longer and not only lose but lose by 44 points? That has to be some kind of a record.

    We also had more first downs then SC and they only had 50 more total yards then we did (with penalty yards subtracted)...and we lost by 44.

    Also, 11 of our 12 drives got into SC territory...and we score 6 points?

    TOP is completely overrated in college football...

    I fully expect us to be close or even beat Oregon in TOP. Their scoring drives won't take very long.

    The only positive out of this was our offense got more reps and didn't really have 3 and outs if any

    In NFL as well, but more likely to be head scratching in college football

    5 turnovers inside the 20 yard line are all you need to see as an explanation....team hadn't moved the ball that well the entire season, then would get in scoring range and wet the bed and rinse/repeat over and over and over

    You are probably right since the ducks have been almost dead last in time of possession under Chip Kelly.

    So basically it takes us a long time to get in the end zone/kick a field goal/turn the ball over, and it takes our opponents very little time to score at will. Lack of playmakers and poor defense sound about right?

    Only time it might mean anything is during a game if the score's close and you're heading into the last 10 minutes.

    TOP doesn't matter, at all, except when you need to run the clock out.
