The Iowa Hawkeyes and the Boston College Eagles are playing on Wednesday night in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. In the early stages of the game, ESPN normally shows the “keys to the game.”

Former college football coach Mack Brown, who now calls games for ESPN, said the keys to the game. However, it said the following, run game, special teams, and Nate Stanley vs. Darius Wade in the passing game.

The run game, passing game, and special teams are a big part of any game. Yet, they also forgot to showcase the defense — which for some reason was not listed in the keys to the game.

Ok, if you can only have three, we understand, but you do not win games if you don’t play good defense, right? Everyone would agree with us. As the old saying goes, “Defense wins championships.”

Defense is a big part of each team’s make up. The Hawkeyes are averaging giving up 22.5 points per game. The Eagles are averaging giving up 19.9 points per game.
