TEXAS STATE DOWNS SOUTHERN MISS BEHIND RECORD SETTING DAY 62-34
It looked like USM was going to have it easy against new FBS team Texas State after they drove easily down the field on their first drive. They were able to get a FG after their drive stalled. TXST had trouble moving the ball and had to punt back to the fiesty USM offense. The defense seemed like a different defense - intercepting a Eagles pass for a 72 yard TD; and did the same thing on the following play. In less than 30 seconds Texas State was up 14-3. After getting the lead, it became a little easier for the Cougars. They fed it to their RB Franks who, in the first official game as a member of FBS, broke the school record for most TDs in a game. The game was never in question as the offense just kept the pedal to the metal, matching USM score for score in the 2nd half. It will be interesting to see how Texas State will do against a better opponent next week in Wyoming.
PLAYER OF THE GAME:
T. Franks 25 carries 160 yards, 4TDs
Louisiana Lafayette Upsets Indiana
Bloomington, IN- The Louisiana Lafayette Ragin Cajun Football season kicked off against Indiana and it started off the right way as the Cajuns upset the Hoosiers on their home field. Terrance Broadway flashed the skillset that made him one of the most dangerous QB's in the Sun Belt last season, and the running game pounded Indiana into submission.
Terrance Broadway got the scoring started in the first quarter with the first of his 2 TD runs, as he capped the first drive of the season with a 15 yard TD run. Broadway plowed over 2 defenders at the goalline to power his way into the endzone. The lead was shortlived though, as Indiana QB Tre Roberson scrambled on the Hoosiers first play and went 74 yards to tie the game at 7. Broadway scored his second TD on the next drive, this time from 11 yards out, and didn't have to plow any defenders this time, as he was untouched on the scamper. IU responded and put another score in on a 10 yard pass from Roberson to Cody Latimer.
The second quarter passed uneventfully, as neither team was able to mount a TD drive, but LA-LA was able to score on 2 field goals. The passing game got moving in the 3rd quarter, as Broadway found his TE, Jacob Maxwell for a 9 yard TD in the 3rd and a 6 yard TD in the 4th. IU tacked on a garbage time TD to close the score to 34-21 with under 3:00 to go in the 4th.
Broadway finished 16/22 for 147 yards and 2 TD's with no interceptions, and added 113 yards and 2 TD's on the ground on 21 carries. HB Alonzo Harris carried 19 times for 97 yards without a score, and Effrem Reed tallied 59 yards on 11 carries for the ground game. Robinson and Maxwell paced the receiving game with Robinson catching 5 passes for 55 yards, and Maxwell catching 3 for 47 and 2 TD's. The defense played well, holding the IU ground game under 150 yards and the passing game under 200. Tre Roberson led the Hoosiers with 81 yards on 7 carries, but 74 came on the first play of the game. LA-LA's massive DT Justin Hamilton tallied his first sack of the season, and the secondary managed an interception deep in the redzone.
Player of the Game:
Terrance Broadway- 16/22 for 147 and 2 TD's; 21 carries for 113 yards and 2 TD's
The Bulldogs from La Tech went to NCSU to open their 2013 campaign. The Bulldogs offense and defense seemed like a team their coach had never laid eyes on and fell behind 20-10 at the break. But after a few adjustments at half, Coach Craig's team started the 2nd half with a balanced attack and tied the score at 20 mid way through the 3rd. But the Wolfpack drove for a field goal and then capitalized on one of 3 Scott Young int's. to go up 10 again at 30-20 with 5 minutes left. Without star HB Dixon, who sustained a concussion, Coach Craig put in senior Paul Harris at QB and he drove the team down the field and scored on a read option keeper 5 yd run. Needing a stop, the Bulldogs forced a 3 and out and Harris quickly got them in range but the drive stalled and at the :48 mark Barnes tied the game with a 42 yd FG. NCSU faced a 3rd and 7 at their own 30 but Mitchell found Underwood for a huge gain across midfield. Another 2 completions got the ball in chip shot range and with :04 left NCSU retook the lead 33-30. The drama wasn't over. Bulldog return man Bryson Abraham took in the kick at the 8 and cut left, then right, and found himself alone by the LTU 40. A lone Wolfpack defender made a dive for his feet at around the 20 but Abraham streaked into the end zone ready to celebrate with his team. But there was laundry. A clipping call ended the game. Upon reviewing the play after the game Coach Craig used many expletives that cannot be printed here about the call, where a Bulldog special-teamer simply was faster than the Wolfpack player and bumped him from behind. The "block" was away from Abraham and had no bearing on the runback. Coach Craig said he "fully expects an apology" but that "garbage like that call has no place in the game."

Wow to my last game ill recap tomorrow
North Texas gets by Ohio 24-10This was a slow game starting out as neither team could gain an advantage but both teams managed FGs in the 1st to make it 3-3. The Mean Green would strike 1st with an 8 yard run by RB B. Byrd to make it 10-3. Ohio would answer back and score on an 11 yard TD pass by QB T. Tettleton to TE T. Hill to tie it at 10-10 going into the half. North Texas would control the 2nd half by outscoring the Bobcats 14-0. In the 3rd QB B. Berglund found WR L. Pleasant on a 26 yard TD to go up by 7 with the score 17-10. In the 4th RB B. Byrd would ice the game scoring his 2nd TD of the day from 3 yards out to make it 24-10. North Texas had over 200 yards on the ground and Byrd accounted for 113 of them on 31 carries. QB B. Berglund went 7-16 for only 87 yards 1 TD 1 INT.
Ragin Cajuns Knock Off KU
Lawerence, KS- The Ragin Cajuns survived injuries to their top 2 tailbacks, thanks to a great game from Junior QB Terrance Broadway. Alonzo Harris had a good game before leaving in the 3rd with concussion symptoms, and Effrem Reed left in the 2nd and returned in the 4th with a knee injury, but the La-La WR and backup running backs were able to carry the load and keep the Cajuns undefeated.
The game started off well for both offenses as the Cajuns took the opening drive 90 yards for a TD, capped by a 3 yard strike from Broadway to Jamal Robinson. The Ragin Cajun offense sputtered the rest of the 1st quarter and allowed the Jayhawks to take a 14-7 lead into the second. With just under 5 minutes to go in the half, Broadway flipped a pitch to WR Ricky Johnson on a triple option play and Johnson scooted 44 yards to tie the game up. KU's star RB James Sims scored on the next drive to give the Jayhawks the lead at 21-14, but Broadway led a masterful 2 minute offense before taking an option keeper in from 4 yards out to send the game to halftime tied at 21.
The Jayhawks took a 28-24 lead into the 4th thanks to a Ragin Cajun offense that was stuck in neutral without it's top 2 ball carriers. In the 4th Louisiana-Lafayette's star QB decided to take over. Broadway found 3rd team RB Montrel Carter for an 11 yard TD to take a 31-28 lead early in the 4th. Then the defense came up with a huge play when OLB Boris Anyama picked up a Tommy Rees fumble and motored in from 30 yards out to take a 10 point lead with 5:30 to play. Heaps scored on a 6 yard scramble to narrow the gap. Broadway found Effrem Reed for a 17 yard TD to regain a 10 point advantage. KU scored again with :27 left, but the Ragin Cajuns recovered the onside kick, and despite trying to run the clock out tacked on a garbage time TD on a run by Broadway. On the day Broadway finished 14-19 for 135 yards and 3 TD's and carried 13 times for 112 yards and 2 more TD's to win the player of the game.
The Ragin Cajuns are off next week, before taking on the Akron Zips in their home opener.
FAU-30 ECU- 24
FAU's Defense and Special Teams play lifted their struggling offense to the victory in this one. Two fumbles and two interceptions were not enough to help ECU win the game, as they relied completely on NCAA-leading Passer QB Shane Carden completely. ECU had a total of two called rushing attempts, although three sacks make it look like more. The first half was fairly quiet, with both defenses holding firm and FAU pulling slightly ahead in this one to go up 10-7 at the half. The second half was an offensive explosion, as both teams found ways to attack their opponents. ECU started getting the ball to their WRs on quick routes because they got immediate separation from the DBs who had played so well in the first half and they were able to put up three scores on the FAU Owls. FAU's offensive adjustments included getting the ball to speedy playmaker Martese Jackson at the A-Back spot. Although he doesn't tend to get too many touches per game, he made each one count, averaging over 10 yards per carry. The FAU kicker turned out to be the difference in this one, however, going 3 for 3 and putting the game out of reach late.
RB B. Byrd seals win for North Texas with a 17 yard run vs GeorgiaThe game plan for North Texas was to keep the UGA offense on the sideline and that's what happened. The Mean Green held the ball for 25:16 to 6:44. Both defenses were focused as neither team scored in the 1st Qtr. The first drive of the 2nd for the Mean Green look promising but stalled and NT settled for a FG to go up 3-0. QB A. Murray answered back and capped it off with a 9 yard pass from A. Murray to M. Mitchell to put the Bulldogs up 7-3 with :18 left in the 2nd. UGA received the ball in the 2nd half and looked to add to the lead but the Mean Green defense held strong and forced a punt. NT turned it into a scoring dive as RB R. Pegram scored on a 9 yard TD run to put NT up by 3 10-7. Again A. Murray would answer on the next drive this time hooking up with J. Rome from 5 yards out to put Georgia back on top 14-10 to end the 3rd. NT scored early in the 4th on a 17 yard run by B. Byrd to put NT back on the lead 17-14 with 5:40 left. UGA would drive down the field on their next possession in bits and pieces and this looked to be the final drive of the game but A. Murray would run the same play one too many times as LB Z. Orr would jump an out pattern and pick it off with a little over 2 minutes left. NT would run out the clock and leave Athens with a 17-14 victory. North Texas goes to 4-0 on the season
Lafayette, LA- ULL's in-state rival, the Tulane Green Wave, rolled into Cajun Country on Saturday looking for a big win, and instead took a loss. ULL followed the power running of Jr. RB Alonzo Harris to a 55-23 win over the private school from New Orleans.
ULL took leads of 28-0 and 48-7 before Tulane was able to get their offense going. The biggest problem for the Green Wave were turnovers, they turned the ball over 4 times on interceptions by QB Powell before he was benched for Nick Montana (yes, that Montana.) ULL was able to pound the ball consistently against the Green Wave defense and doubled up Tulane in TOP. The Ragin' Cajuns only put the ball in the air 8 times, but racked up 134 yards on 5/8 passing. Alonzo Harris had 183 yards and 2 TD's on 22 carries, Effrem Reed had 84 yards and 2 TD's on 8 carries, and Broadway had 66 yards and 1 TD on 10 carries. And CB Cory Trim returned 1 interception 32 yards for a score.
Good game matthew34brown.
FAU rolled into a very large, yet very empty stadium in Birmingham tonight to take down the Blazers. The opening drive set the tone for the game and it was all downhill from there. UAB dared FAU to run the ball, loading the box for much of the first half, but they left their LB one-on-one with FAU's top WR Williams Dukes who scorched the defense on 6 bigtime catches for 140 yards and 3 TDs. FAU's offense then ran the ball effectively, with a final amount of 226 rushing yards. The big contributers on the ground were Martese Jackson and Quez Johnson, who combined for 160 of the team's yards. the real story of the game was FAU's defense. They held UAB to 113 yards of total offense. A record low for the season for both teams. UAB just could not get things going, they went 2-10 on third down and 0-3 on fourth when they were despearate in the second half. They were also forced to cough up the ball 5 times, 3 interceptions and 2 fumbles off poorly-timed pitches. All in all, this was a complete performance for FAU and UAB's coaching staff couldn't make things happen with their less talented team.
POG: FAU Defense- 4 three and outs, 5 turnovers, 113 yds
GG -Balla- thanks for sticking with it. Your team is like 8 points OVR below mine. Thats a tough matchup. Good luck the rest of the way and especially on the recruiting trail.

hornfaninbama any idea what's going on there?
ULL Takes Down BobcatsLafayette, LA- Louisiana-Lafayette shook off a slow start to run away from Texas State late and secure their second Sun Belt win.
Texas State was outrushed 170 to 51 and outgained on the whole 313 to 222. Tyler Arndt started out hitting his first 8 passes, but threw a pick 6 on his 9th attempt, and only completed 4 of 12 from that point on. Part of the problem for TSU was that their OL couldn't hold off the Ragin Cajuns pass rush. Arndt was sacked 6 times on the day, and ULL's DE Tovell grabbed 2 for himself.
On offense the Ragin Cajuns were led by Terrance Broadway who went 12/13 for 143 yards 0 TD's and 0 interceptions, and added 43 yards and a TD on the ground. Alonzo Harris ran 19 times for 112 yards, one of his runs was an inverted veer keeper that he turned into a long run to set up Torrey Pierce's 5 yard TD run. The game wasn't out of reach until Hunter Stover stepped to the edge of his range (not kidding here) and knocked down an 18 yard FG.
Offensive Player: Alonzo Harris- 19 carries 112 yards
Defensive Player: Dominique Tovell- 9 tackles, 2 sacks

Yea bro it was men playing boys.
North Texas beats La. Tech to become bowl eligibleThings started out slow for the Mean Green as they could get no offense going in the 1st Qtr. UNT had a promising drive but QB B. Berglund would fumble at the goal line to give the ball back to the Bulldogs. La Tech scored on their opening drive for the only TD of the Qtr on a 7 yard run by RB S. Young. North Texas would come to play in the second QTR outscoring the Bulldogs 17-0 with a FG, a 4 yard run by QB B. Berglund, and a 6 yard pass from B. Berglund to WR N. Schrapps. It would be a 17-7 game at the half. The Mean Green received the ball after the half and scored quickly with a 56 yard TD catch and run by WR C. Harris. to make it 24-7. UNT defense would continue to shut down the Bulldog offense. UNT got the ball back and scored again this time on the ground from RB B. Byrd from 6 yards out to make it a 31-7 game. La Tech would not go away as they scored the next 2 TDs making it 31-19. QB S. Young hits R. Casey and J. Greenwalt both from 12 yards out for TDs. UNT would put it away with a little under 2 minutes left as B. Byrd scored his 2nd TD on a 29 yard run to make it a final score of 38-19. North Texas moves to 6-1(2-1) on the season and will face Southern Miss next week.
North Texas beat Southern Miss to improve to 7-1 on the season. This was another slow start for the Mean Green as they only managed a FG in the 1st to go up 3-0 as they would take that lead into the 2nd. RB B. Byrd scored 2 of his 3 TDs in the 2nd (3,6) and another FG for the Mean Green as they scored 20 points before the half and Southern Miss scored a TD as QB C. Campbell hit RB J. Richard for 14 yards and it was 20-7 at the half. No points were scored in the 3rd and UNT added 10 points and USM added 7 to bring the final to 30-14.
ULL Survives Arkansas State
Red Wolves Late Rally Nearly Shocks Cajuns
Jonesboro, AR- The Arkansas State Red Wolves nearly stole a win from ULL on Tuesday night. The Red Wolves cam all the way back to take a stunning lead with 1:03 left in the game, and nearly ended the Ragin Cajuns undefeated season.
ULL got off to a good start, taking a 20-7 lead before the Red Wolves mounted a stunning comeback, on the back of several fumbles by the Ragin Cajuns. The Red Wolves came all the way back to take a 38-34 lead with 1:03 left on a David Oku run from 29 yards out. Terrance Broadway led a great 2 minute drill to put the Ragin cajuns in the endzone with :11 on the clock. Darryl Surgent broke open on a corner route, and Broadway put it right in stride for the winning TD from 23 yards out.
Broadway had his best game passing going 16/21 for 190 yards 4 TD's and 2 interceptions. Neither of his interceptions led to points, but he coughed it up twice in the 4th and both of those fumbles led directly to ASU scores. "Terrance went out with a shoulder injury early in the game, we put Haack in, but he wasn't able to move the offense the same way. When Terrance saw that he put himself back into the game, and probably wasn't 100%, we probably shouldn't have let him run it 22 times this week."
ULL racked up 510 yards of offense, 194 passing and 316 on the ground. The Ragin Cajuns are pounding the rock this season, and rushing plays doubled the number of passing plays 59 to 24. 8 different players carried the ball; all 3 running backs, 2 QB's, 1 FB, and 2 WR's. Broadway led all rushers with 22 carries for 119 yards, but Alonzo Harris scored 1 TD to go along with 75 yards on 15 carries. Surgent and Jamal Robinson led the WR Surgent caught 5 passes for 69 yards and the game winning score, Robinson caught 7 for 68 and 2 scores.
Players of the Game
Terrance Broadway: 16/21 for 190 yards 4 TD's 2 interceptions; 22 carries for 119 yards
No One. Defense sucked gave up 359 yards, and let them score too often.
ULL Clinches Sun Belt Title
Cajuns Take Down Warhawks 52-28
Lafayette, LA- The Ragin Cajuns keep on winning, this time taking down the cross state rival Lousiana-Monroe Warhawks in a de facto Conference Title Game. ULL Claimed their first conference championship since 2005, and their first outright title at the FBS level. ULL reached the 11 win plateau, the most wins they've ever had, and the first time the Cajuns have had more than 10 in a season.
Terrance Broadway has been the catalyst for ULL this season, and playing against an instate rival helped him take his game up a notch. Broadway finished 19/27 for 249 yards and 3 TD's and added 18 carries for 76 yards on the ground. ULL has a trio of potential 1000 yard rushers, Effrem Reed, Alonzo Harris and Broadway. Reed carried 10 times for 63 yards and a score, and Alonzo Harris carried 27 times for 177 yards and 3 TD's, Harris added 4 catches for 40 yards and another score receiving.
The Cajun offense kept rolling this week with 586 yards of total offense, 249 through the air, and 337 on the ground. The Cajuns have been tough to stop all season, and hope to carry that momentum into next weeks tilt against South Alabama.
The game started well for ULL reeling off 31 straight points before allowing ULM to score with :11 left in the first half. It was ULM's first drive to pick up a first down, and their first trip across the 50. ULM added another score in teh 3rd, and 2 in the 4th following fumbles by the ULL backfield.
The only drama left in ULL's season is what bowl game the Cajuns will get to visit. The Cajuns sit #16 or #17 depending on the poll, and #16 in the BCS. With their high slot in the rankings the Cajuns could be looking at a BCS bowl if they keep winning and a few teams above them lose. They are one of 5 remaining unbeatens, and could be looking at an all-mid major BCS game if FAU and ULL get matched up.
Player of the Game:
Alonzo Harris: 27 carries 177 yards 3 TD's; 4 catches 40 yards 1 TD
