2014-15 OVERDRIVE SEASON
This SEC clash was a close contest until the final minutes. Thats when Jonathan Williams took a counter 33 yards to bring his game total to 125 on 21 carries and 2 touchdowns. The difference in this game was the 10.2 yards per attempt for Arkansas compared to 7.1 for Missouri as well as 5.5 yards per carry for the Razorback compared to a dissapionting 1.4 for the tigers. The turnover battle was also in favor of the hogs as a key fumble pretty much canceled out Mizzou's chances. Good Game MIZ_LOU84 I look forward to more.
Brandon Allen who went 12/18 183 2 td's, connected with D'Arthur Cowanfor an 18 yard score, the first of two touchdown catches on the day.
Texas A&M Survives 4 Turnovers To Get The Win-
This was billed as the game of the year in the SEC and it definetly didnt disappoint. A&M would come out of the blocks with a great drive capped of by a 50 yard touchdown run by the Heisman contender Williams. Arkansas would answer with an even better drive finished with a 1 yard run up the gut. on the ensuing kickoff A&M would fumble, one of two fumbles on kickoffs, that would set up great field position and an easy score. The Razorbacks would rally off 21 points in the quarter to take a 21-13 lead into the half. To open the second half they would open with a field goal and on the kickoff again would force a fumble and take an easy score putting them up 31-13. from there it was all A&M, or more accurately it was all Brandon Williams and he would score the next three touchdowns on a 39 yard screen play and runs of 19 and 2 all touchdowns. The offense came through repetedly late including converting on two fourth downs. Williams had another Heisman type day with 164 yards on 19 carries and 3 touchdowns and also 3 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown.
I'll give you credit for the win but if it weren't for that random "your receiver is unclickable" BS there would have been a different outcome. In either case good running, dont slip up
Yea you had 1 or 2 sure touchdowns go off ur guys helmet
Shane Wynn, senior WR at Indiana, has had a pretty great career so far. The past two seasons he had a total of 5 touchdowns on kickoff returns as well as 9 receiving touchdowns and 1 rushing touchdown. Before this week's game against Illinois, he had 5 receiving touchdowns but had yet to take a kick or rush for a touchdown. Well, this week he got 3 touchdowns - 1 on the ground, 1 through the air, and 1 on a punt return. Pretty awesome. We're gonna miss him next year.
new kid on the block at Va Tech makes a splash calling signals as they upset Miami on the last play of the game! VT had a 13 point lead going into the 4th quarter but could not convert on a few key 3rd downs, and before you knew it Miami scored on a busted coverage in which a CB manned up slipped and with just 35 ticks on the clock the Hurricanes punched it in to go up 31-30... JC Coleman returned the following kickoff all the way out to the 45 setting up his team for a great last second push, having nearly broken the arm tackle that tripped him up.
QB Mark Leal who has had the very tough task of adjusting to a new system rallied the guys and pushed hard completing a few passes to get a first down, but still out of FG range and with one second on the clock... Leal snapped the ball faked a draw, and saw something that he could not believe... Joel Caleb streaking towards the end zone behind every Miami defender
Coach GURU said this of the game, "You take a W when you can, but you can't hang your hat on last second wins. That is how coaches lose their jobs. We ran the ball poorly, we passed ok, and played great defense for half of a ball game. Any other day, all of that and a nickel will get you a loss... We have a lot to work on."

vs. #5 MSU Fmode11 vs. #21 NW MIZ_LOU84 27 - 10 Spartans Take Care of Business At Home
Michigan State came into the game ranked #5 and with an inside track to the B1G Championship game with National Title aspirations in the back of everyone's minds. The Northwestern Wildcats were coming into East Lansing with the goal of shutting down the Spartans and getting the upset. For most of the first half it was a field possession battle. Neither offense could get much going. After sharing FGs each, the first touchdown came from the Spartans defense with a 49 INT return for a TD (2:49 2nd Quarter) putting the Spartans ahead 10-3.
After the touchdown MSU forced the Wildcats to go three and out and took the ball immediately back down the field to add another touchdown. At the half Michigan was in control 17-3.
The second half saw the MSU assert its strengths and pound the rock. RB Nick Hill finished the day with 19 carries for 101 yards. The run was often able to set-up the throw as Michigan State was 6/9 on third down conversions that were often back-breaking to the Wildcats defense. In addition, the +3 turnover ratio in favor of the Spartans played a significant role in the game. Early in the 4th quarter, after another MSU FG, the Spartans were ahead 27-3. At that point NW was able to string together a drive the kept the Spartans off balance and connect for their first touchdown of the day by HB Treyvon Green with a 4 yard run.

The score doesn't represent how close this game was. A see-saw game that was mistake free by Michigan State ended up being the difference combined with key defensive stops. On the opposite side of the ball, Penn State's defense could not get off the field as Cook threw 4 touchdowns.
While up 2 TDs, Michigan State was in trying to thwart a valiant comeback effort by the Lions when MSU RB Nick Hill busted the below run for a TD which all but sealed the game.

Great B1G Championship battle to C Young. Looking forward to a solid B1G going forward.

Well in a battle of New Blood vs Veteran it came down to literally a few plays to dispatch of the Spartans who I might add were under the influence, and we can't even talk about sandwich gate as it may have a hand in on this victory.
But all in all a great win for us at Iowa as this may have us in the hunt for a Big Ten Title barring no CPU surprises, Garmon was great on the ground yet again 26 car for 159yds 1td and our defense came up with big crucial stops along the way. GG Fmode cya next season
Hahahaha good game man. I had fun. Although there is another thread incorrectly labeled 2016 game summaries where this belongs.
That was a damn good sandwhich though
