Wasn't Overwhelmed

Brock Glenn finished the game completing 9 of 26 passes, but that stat line is misleading unless you watched the game. The nine completions were good balls to the receivers, and receivers dropped at least three passes and probably had about 3-4 catchable balls. Three of Glenn's incompletions came in the red zone, where his inexperience showed, missing an open Ja'Khi Douglas. He also had a couple of incompletions when pressure came toward his face. He missed on at least two post routes, but it was good to see he wasn't afraid to stretch the field vertically.

That's a stark contrast to earlier this month against Louisville. The offensive line holding up in pass protection was helpful. Glenn always seemed like he had an idea of where the ball should go and threw a couple of absolute dimes downfield. The 55-yard pass to Kentron Poitier couldn't have been thrown any better, and the deep pass to Destyn Hill was dropped in a bucket against tight coverage, although it was ruled incomplete. This area was a major improvement.
