Entertainment / Football / 50 Defense: A once popular college defense with 5 defensive linemen and 2 linebackers. Also known as the 'Oklahoma Defense,' it is structurally very similar to the 3-4. In the 50-defense, the team uses a nose tackle (NT), 2 defensive tackles(dts) lined up over or slightly inside the offensive tackles(ots), and 2 defensive ends (des) lineup over or outside the tight end (TE). It maximizes size along the line of scrimmage and is mostly used only in high school against teams that run the ball a lot.
