Not - Kansas' defense, which allowed 31 unanswered points in South Florida's 37-34 victory last week.
I've seen the term "unanswered" incorrectly used too often over the past 5 years and the incorrect use seems to becoming more flagrant as time goes on. Its becoming a pet peave of mine because it seems so easily avoidable.
"Unanswered" means that the team with points being scored upon could not come up with an "answering" score. The above quote is wrong because although USF scored 31 "straight" points, KU "answered" back with 14 "straight" points of their own, only to have USF "answer" with a game winning FG. After USF had scored 31 consecutive points, if KU were shut out the rest of the game, then yes, USF would've have scored 31 "unanswered" points. I hope this clears up any misconceptions that one may have had about when to use the term "unanswered" versus "straight" or even "consecutive".
I hope I've been able to make this war a little more enjoyable for the rest of us.
