    South Alabama hang on for the Upset Win over Ark St.

    Mobile- Coming into the game South Alabama was 0-5 and looking for an identity. They lost a tough game the previous week to Jackson St. So with the uncertainty of HC Coach Pierce still in doubt they prepared for Malzahn and the Wolves. Then they got the surprise when Coach Pierce came into the locker room after the players had already reported in for the game. The Team went nuts and vowed they would win this game for their returning coach.

    The game was a rainy mess as both teams came out and came to Mid-field for the coin toss. Ark St won the Toss and decided to take the ball 1st. The Wolves picked up 1 first down and then went 3 and out and punted the ball to the Jags. The Jags came out with a purpose and that was running the ball as Baker was splitting the defense easily. Then the Jags got the ball down to the 5 yrdline and stalled and settled for a Fg and The Jags drew 1st blood in the game going up 3-0. Ark St tried another drive and went 3 and out again and the Jags took over. early in the 2nd quarter The Jags mixed up their playcalling as they got into the Wolves territory again and drove it down to the 10 yrdline. Then Bennett found his WR Johnson for the TD and The Jags extended the lead to 10-0. Ark St then tried another drive and got 2 FD's and then stalled the drive when they tried to NH twice and their HB tried to throw 2 passes and missed. The Wolves went for a 45 yrd Fg and Just barely missed off the front post and Ladd-Pebbles Stadium was going Nuts. Then the Jags went to work as they drove the ball down via the running game and then Baker broke for a 22 yrd gain down to the 1 yrdline. then the Jags punched it in for a Td with Baker and the Jags Led 17-0 as the Half was winding down. Ark St then tried to show some life as Aplin put it on himself to get the Wolves back into the game. Then with 4 secs remaining Aplin tried a Hailmary pass and it was picked off at the 1 yrdline and returned 16 yrds as the half came to a close.

    The Jags took the ball 2nd half and picked up 2 fd's and then stalled and had to punt the ball. Ark St then drove the ball with a mixture of run and pass as Aplin found his Wr for a short gain for paydirt as the Wolves trimmed the lead to 17-7 with plenty of time left in the game. SA then got a drive going as the 3rd quarter was wrapping up. Sa then found huge holes in the defense as Baker broke the 200 yrd mark as he drove it down to the 2 yrdline. Baker then punched it in for his 2nd Td as Sa pushed the lead to 24-7. But as always Ark St finds a way back into the game as Aplin took it upon himself to get them back into the game. Via the passing game Ark St drove it down to SA's 22 yrdline and then Aplin pulled a Tebow and ran it in himself as Ark st scores and cuts the lead to 10 points. SA then tried another drive and was able to run some time off as they picked up 1 fd and then stalled and punted the ball back with 2:04 left in the Game. Then Ark St went full pass as Aplin found his recievers easily and threw for his 2nd Td of the Game to cut the SA lead down to 3 at 24-21 with 1:40 left in the game. Then the Wolves tried a onside kick and SA recovered with 1:36 left in the game. Then SA made Ark st burn 2 of their TO's as they picked up a crucial 1st down. Then Ark st burned their last TO as Sa picked up 2 yrds on the 1st down. Then SA kneeled the ball and then Baker came up short of the 1st down by 3 yrds and SA went for the FG. The Kicker Nailed the Fg with 4 secs left in the game as they pushed the lead to 27-21. Then SA squibbed the KO and quickly covered the return man after allowing 10 yrds and the game was over as SA picks up their 1st win of the season as the players made good on their Vow to Win the game for CoachPierce. The Upset drops Ark St to 3-4 on the season. SA picks up a big Conference win to even it at 1-1.

    The Jags entertain FIU next week as they hope to continue their good fortunes.

    Baker was the POG as he rushed for 243 yrds which not only is a career high, but also a school record. SA rushed for a school and season high record of 372 yrds.
    Bennett threw for a modest 91 yrds on 6-7 passing with 1 td and 0 int's.
    Johnson led SA with 68 yrds and 1 Td.

    Aplin was the leading rusher for the Wolves with 51 yrds and 1 td and he threw for 237 with 2 td's and 1 int.
    The rest of the rushing attack was held to 26&25 yrds for the game.

    It was a Mile High humiliation in Denver. Utah State hung on the road for parts of the first quarter and then fell apart faster than a suit jacket from WalMart.

    In the first quarter, the Aggies moved the ball for a coule of series, but butterfingers prevented us from converting a third down to get into scoring position. Both teams traded punts but Denver broke the egg first. Nate Carlson scored from 17 yards out to go up 7-0. Utah Stated started moving the ball again on their next series. Once again, an open receiver had a chance to make a big play. Instead, he tried to make the big play before catching the ball as it bounced off his hands and into CB Hank Morgan.

    Morgan turned the pick into a TAINT (Touchdown After INTerception) and its 14-0. On the following kickoff, Robert Turbin busts one 99 yards for the score and it's a game again. Pioneer QB Jeff Walden made some magic happen next. He waited, waited, and waited as the USU lineman had a merry-go-round with the center. Minutes later, he found a wide open Rory Denman for an easy TD. 21-7.

    The Aggies still had some fight left. Backup QB turned starter Adam Kennedy marched them right down the field and in to the red zone. But he found another Pioneer player, this time in the end zone, and yet another drive way killed.

    That about was the whole story. Utah State continued to make bad reads and force throws. Not only couldn't they hit the open receiver, they avoided him. And running the ball wasn't much more fun. I couldn't get out of the back pocket of most of my lineman and would miss some decent running lanes.

    Luckily, Hal called off the dogs because half my team was peeing blue in the status chart. He just turned it over to Nate Carlson and that man did the rest. 179 yards and 3 TDs later and the Pioneers walked away with a crushing 38-7 ass kicking.

    GG Hal. I hope I can make it more challenging next time.

    Texas Roadhouse
    SAN ANTONIO, Texas --- There is said to be such a thing as a statement game in college and pro sports. A game in which the performance of one team clearly says to the rest of their competitors "we have arrived". Saturday seemed to be just such a game as Sam Houston State dropped an anvil on the UTSA Roadrunners 52-17. The game was Sam Houston State's WAC debut.
    The Bearkats put up 547 yards of offense (322 passing, 225 rushing) while holding UTSA to 260 yards of offense. The Roadrunners entered the game at 5-1.
    Sam Houston quarterback Brian Bell set a season high with 322 yards passing and five touchdowns. Standout receiver Richard Sincere was the recipient of six of those passes, amassing a staggering 232 yards and four touchdowns. This was the fourth straight game over 100 yards for Sincere.
    Next up for the Bearkats will be another in-state and conference opponent in Texas State. The Bobcats came into the week at 3-4 (0-2 WAC).
    Sam Houston State 52, UTSA 17

    In a tight contest, Palm Beach Atlantic edges Alabama A&M 24-17
    Alabama A&M and Palm Beach Atlantic squared off in a contest that matched old rivals from years gone by in the Gridiron Gladiators days as soxandgators traveled to Huntsville to rekindle the series. A&M struck first after a long scoring drive resulting in a 19 yard FG. PBA wasted little time responding as they quickly cut thru the A&M defense and took the lead on a 6 yard TD pass. The PBA defense continued to confuse and frustrate the A&M offense in the 2nd Qtr and they used that to increase their lead to 14-3 with a 2 yard TD run. In the 3rd Qtr A&M cut the lead to 14-10 when the Bulldog QB scored on a 71 yard TD run. But PBA responded immediately with a 77 yard TD pass then followed that up with a 25 yard FG to extend their lead to 24-10 heading into the final period. In the 4th Qtr the bulldogs pulled to within 7 when A&M backup QB connected on a 42 yard TD pass. The Bulldogs continued to scarp and claw and had two shot to tie the game but to PBA credit they turned the Bulldogs away. A&M drove to the PBA 1 yard line and faced a 4th and goal when coach soxandgators out smarted the A&M staff and stuffed a HB dive killing A&M first chance. The bulldogs held PBA and forced a punt and gave themselves a slim shot at tying the game once again. But a bad read by the A&M QB resulted in a Interception at the goal line and PBA secured the win.
    Great game by soxandgators as always and hopefully I learned a little something I can take forward.

    MU Downed by Eastern Michigan

    Marquette got absolutely manhandled by Eastern Michigan. Their QB/HB could both outrun my entire defense and it didn't help that my starting QB went down in the first quarter for the game. Couldn't seem to get anything going and a couple of really big turnovers in Eastern Michigan territory really solidified their win. 31-0 EMU. The Golden Eages still haven't signed a recruit for the 2013-2014 season, but are hoping to get some commits in the coming weeks.
