1998 NCAA Stats For the Record


12/10/98

By Gabe Correa - Smokey's Trail

Stats are OK on paper, but that doesn't mean that a lower team can't beat a higher team on the totem pole. Thats been proven time and time again, and like this year, Ohio State number 1 fell to an unranked team, Michigan State Spartans [Head coach Nick Saban]. Fasten your chin strap it's showtime at the O.K. Corral. Tennessee has talent on every level on both sides of the ball. It's going to be a battle of the decade!!
