University at Buffalo Run Game: IZ, OZ & Counterby Football For Coaches
When it comes to having winning success in football, one of the most important things a team must do is execute a solid run game strategy.
While there are many different styles of play, for this course we will focus on the strategies that the Buffalo Bulls have used in their highly successful zone and counter run game.
How successful have they been?
Check out these statistics pulled straight from the NCAA FBS Team Statistics page:
- 2nd in Rushing Offense with 287.4 average yards per game.
- They averaged 6.71 yards per rush attempt.
- 5th in Scoring Offense with 43.4 average points per game.
The Buffalo Bulls offensive line plays a vital role when it comes to their run execution.
To see how they really did it, we collected 20 of their best run plays and analyzed the wide and end zone film.
For the purposes of this course, we will break down and share the best examples of offensive plays the Bulls used last season.
We will also analyze these plays in order to demonstrate how their combination of Inside Zone, Outside Zone and Counter, can be successful and score points when executed properly.
If you want to be a coach who is successful at teaching the IZ/OZ and Counter run game, then take this course to learn from the best team that executed these schemes.
