The last full week of the college football regular season is upon us. Week 12 gave us some really fascinating box scores to scroll through. It is hard to accuse a player or a team of quitting, but it absolutely does happen and there were some instances in which we really saw it happen. We’re going to see it happen next week as well.

Going back through the previous week’s box scores can give you an indication of the teams in question. We also saw some crazy outliers unrelated to motivation and engagement level.

Let’s dig into the box scores and find some nuggets for the finale.

Southern Miss 35, Louisiana Tech 19

This is a great starting point. Southern Miss had not scored more than 19 points against any FBS opponent this season prior to this game. The Golden Eagles “exploded” for 35 points against Louisiana Tech.

Well, let’s rephrase that. Southern Miss had 294 yards of offense in the game, managing 4.9 yards per play. By the Golden Eagles’ standards, that is an offensive explosion. The game featured eight turnovers and one turnover on downs, six of which came from Louisiana Tech.
