Thanks. Longest advance ever
Yeah what's your deal trey?? Bout time.
Eugene Bishop saved a TD from 3 Oregon WRs that ended up being the play of the game.
ASU holds on against Oregon 38-35 on a game ending FG.
This was a back and forth battle the entire game. Thanks to the interception as time expired of the first half by Eugene Bishop, ASU went into the locker room up 21-14 and this was likely the play of the game and saved the win for ASU. Oregon got the ball in the 2nd half and promptly rushed down the field with DAT and Marshall to score within 30 seconds...all on RUNS. ASU was looking to answer but Mike Eubank threw an INT in the endzone. Using this momentum, Oregon once again marched down the field, but this time the drive ended on a perfectly timed screen pass to DAT. DAT was gashing the ASU defense all game...so ASU loaded the box and blitzed, only to be burned by the screen.
Oregon was then up 28-21. ASU though, wanting to air it out, feeling frustrated, kept the next drive balanced and ended it with a 2 yd plunge from backup HB Deantre Lewis. Starter Marion Grice was injured in the 1st quarter. The ASU defense then suddenly was able to get some confidence and stopped Oregon on their next two drives forcing punts. ASU then stayed balanced on offense, throwing short passes and running the ball when Deantre Lewis once again took a read option handoff and weaved through the blocks to score the go ahead TD and put ASU back in the lead 35-28. ASU was hoping to force another punt from Oregon but the run game was just too potent. Oregon worked its way down to ASU's 1 yard line. Calling an all out blitz, OU threw a quick slant for the tie at 35. With 1:30 remaining, ASU did not want to go to overtime. Oregon's defense had already forced to INTs from ASU and could do little to nothing to stop Oregons Thomas. With a few short passes, and running the hurry up offense with no timeouts, QB Eubank was able to hook up with Alonzo Agweune down the sideline for a 34 yard gain. This play put ASU at about the Oregon 30 yard line with a minute left. Another short pass and a run up the middle would line up the game winning kick from 32 yards out.
What a brutal beating this game turned out to be. NW had been scraping by and holding on for wins the past 6 weeks, but finally had a breakthrough game on the road at #24 Nebraska. Everything finally came together in this one, as the defense played lights out and took Nebraska completely out of the game. Nebraska came out pretty strong in the first half, and managed to have a few decent drives, but we held them to 3 field goals. At the same time, Colter continued his strong play to bring us into the endzone two times to give NW the 14-9 first half lead. At this point the game was very much in doubt, but boy did things change in the 2nd half.
NW got the ball to start the half, and drove right down the field, all the way inside the 5. Colter attempted to make what seemed to be a simple little slant/stop route by the TE over the middle, but a LB or DE was hiding behind the OL, and just reached out and grabbed the ball. It was kind of bizarre, still don't know how the play happened, but check it out on the DW. We tackled him on the 2, and were pissed at our blown opportunity. Then, on the first play, NE tried a stretch play to the left, which the RB bounced outside, right into my defenders who nailed him for a safety. From that point on, it was like all momentum came to my team and we could do no wrong.
Taylor Martinez just went completely Ryan Leaf all of a sudden. After completing his first 7 passes of the game, in the 2nd half he missed on about 8 straight, including 2 bad drops. Then he got hilariously skittish, almost every time he finished his drop back, he started to scramble. Once that happened, it was like he was just giving me sacks. DE Tony Scott was the main beneficiary, as Martinez just ran right into him a few times, and he ended up with 4 sacks. NW's offense kept scoring, and after going up 21 in the 3rd we took out the starters to make sure nobody got hurt, if Colter goes down we are done.
Ongoing concern: We still cannot run the ball. Starting RB Venric Mark should be coming back next week, so we hope to be able to get things rolling with him again. The backups just aren't finding any holes anywhere.

A huge match up this week as the number one spot for the Pac 12 South was up for grabs. Both teams came in to today hungry for the win. Washington would start with the ball and the run game was still hot from the Cal game. The first drive would end with Deonte Cooper running it in from eight yards out. The first Utes drive would only last a few plays as linebacker Timu intercepted a pass at the 33 yard line. A minute or so later Austin Seferian-Jenkins was in the end zone with a seven yard reception. Utah looked like they would have another drive end with a turn over as safet Parker forced a fumble but Utah was able to recover.
Early in the second Utes halfback Radley would punch one in from three yards out to make it 14-7. The ensuing Washington drive would see Keith Price make one move and find daylight for a 53 yard TD run. The Huskies would get great field position after linebacker Fuimaono intercepted the ball before stepping out at the 22 yard line. Facing a fourth and goal from the one a few plays later, Jesse Callier would run it in to put UW up by 14. The Utes would go for it on fourth down on their drive. Wilson would go QB Sneak on fourth and one from their 33 yard line and get to the 34 before being taken down. This drive would continue and end with a long screen pass for a touchdown. Washington was able to make some misses on the kickoff return and go 103 yards for the score. Utah would take over with less than five seconds left in the half. A streak down the field would be complete and Peters would get an arm on the receiver to make him spin around and slip on the snow before he could break off for a touchdown.
Not much action in the third quarter. Wilson would throw an incomplete pass on a fourth and five from the 49 yard line. Washington would run the ball a lot and Callier would get another TD. That was pretty much all the excitement in the third.
Another fourth down attempt for Utah would see Peters swat down the pass on fourth and 18. More running and clock control came from the Washington Huskies. With around two minutes left Price would go out to take a knee on fourth down instead of making an easy field goal. After not getting a first down on three plays and around 20 seconds left the Utah punt team would come out. This was only to fool the Huskies as it was a fake. After not seeing anyone open the punter would scramble all the way for the first down. A kneel was set up before a time out was called. Two halfback runs would end the game without anything gained. Washington wins in a rout 42-14.

Turnovers make the difference in Bears' Win
After losing 2 straight on the road to Oklahoma State and Washington Cal returned home to face the #15 ranked Arizona Wildcats.
The game started off as many others this season for the Bears defense as Arizona QB Jesse Scroggins executed the option perfectly leading the offense down the field and put up 6 on a 2 yard run by RB Ka'Deem Carey. On their first possession Cal managed to put up 3 on a 47 yard by kicker Vincent D'Amato. The visitors added to their lead very early in the second as Carey scored his second touchdown of the game from short distance to extend the lead to 14-3. Just under 2 minutes later Cal scored their first touchdown of the game when QB Zach Kline hooked up with standout WR Chris Harper in the endzone on a 32 yard pitch and catch.
The good feelings for Cal didn't last for long as the red hot Arizona offense scored yet another touchdown as WR Davonte Neal made a nice leaping grab in the endzone on a 17 yard pass from Scoggins. Cal answered back with 2:29 left in the half when RB Darren Ervin took a screen pass 11 yards for the touchdown. Taking advantage of a Scoggins pick (a sign of things to come) D'Amato added a 21 yard field goal with no time remaining in the half to cut the lead to 21-20 heading into the locker rooms.
Electing to receive the ball to start the second half paid immediate dividends for Cal when Harper took a slant pass the distance to give the Bears their first lead of the game as 27-21. The touchdown was made possible because of a double linebacker blitz by the Wildcats which left the middle of the field wide open. Arizona's offense was a complete mirror image of the first half as they struggled with turnovers with Scroggins being the main culprit. Time and time again he throw poorly placed placed passed which ruined drives that looked like they were going to end up with points put on the board. Which was a shame since the Cal defense could not slow down the Wildcat rushing attack at all.
Arizona cut the lead in half in the opening seconds of the 4th as Jake Smith hit a 22 yard to make the score 27-24. However that would be as close as the Wildcats got as Brendan Bigelow continued his success at the goaline with a 2 yard run. Darren Ervin put the game away with 3:04 remaining when he took a screen pass on 3rd and 5 66 yards untouched for the for score making it 41-24. Arizona would add another touchdown late to cut it within 10 on Neal's second TD grab of the game.
