Former Big Ten opponents are now explosive SEC teammates. Through just two weeks of the 2021 season, Will Levis and Wan’Dale Robinson have created as many 50+ yard plays as the Wildcats did in the entire 2020 season. The transfer portal connection’s big play ability makes the most significant difference on third down.
“We have that chemistry right now. We just gotta continue to make it better throughout the season,” Will Levis said on this week’s edition of Pin it Deep. “There’s just a lot of things we can get better at, but it’s great to still see us in these games connect.”
Third Down Improvement by the Numbers
The Wildcats were one of the SEC’s worst offenses on third down in 2020, converting just 36.6% of their attempts. It’s easy to understand why. If you get behind the chains in obvious passing situations and can’t pass, you’re up a creek without a paddle.
