Football By the Numbers for Week 11

The football season is winding down for most local teams, as only 19 remain in action with just three weeks left until the season culminates in the state championships at M&T; Bank Stadium. Although most games this weekend went as expected, a handful of upsets peppered the regional playoffs, none bigger than Meade upending previously-unbeaten Arundel. As the MIAA heads into its championship weekend and the public schools head into regional finals, here are some of the statstics that stood out in this weekend’s action.
