They were a NCAA bubble team that finished 11-5 in the Big 10 (3rd place). Their RPI was 46 compared to Tech's 105. Considering Michigan played at home the other night and Tech has to travel from Penn State to Ann Arbor with 1 day of practice, I'd say that on paper we're a big underdog but Penn State was favored to beat us too.
Penn State finished 9-7 in the Big 10 and were 16-1 at home before playing us. Penn State's RPI was 87. The ACC was a tougher conference than the Big 10. What I'm saying is anything is possible. We are playing with confidence again. Our scoring has been very balanced. The last 2 teams that we have played have really focused on Regan Magarity but our other players have come through.
