    Yeah, that's what I meant....no user instants. Yes, in fact I think I'm playing gators in the E around 9 central, so after that game works good for me.....which should be closer to 1030 central. I'll be on, whenever the kids cooperate is cool.

    I think the only thing that might hit triple in that game is the number of digits in Oregon's score.

    Change The State Nickname! Blue Raiders Stun Vols

    Middle Tennessee State - 30
    Tennessee - 24

    In Coach Cheez's first year at a struggling MTSU program, the Blue Raiders made their way to Knoxville heavy underdogs. Not surprising, the Blue Raiders were outclassed by the Vols 35-17. This is a much improved MTSU squad over four years ago - one which plays really hard-hitting football and has a really good young back to lead them. Nate McMillan would rush for 281 yards and 2 TDs on 30 carries en route to the 30-24 win at home over Tennessee. The biggest turning point may have occured on the defensive end early in the second quarter when Tennessee's All-American quarterback was the second of 5 players taken out of the game for the Vols with an injury.

    Sloppy game by both teams, but ultimately more breaks went Cincinnati's way as the Bearcats pull ahead in the second half. UC forced 5 turnovers, including a 56 yard fumble return for a score. HB Rashard Sullivan rushed for over 100 yards and 2 scores. New QB Patrick Coyne threw for 2 touchdowns as well. Good game recchem2000

    gg man...wasnt really sure what I had coming into this game with this team. Played well early but really had no offensive rhythm going and your run out of the pistol was giving me fits there for a while. Good luck the rest of the season!

    Did you miss 3 FGs and give up 15 points in the last 63 seconds to lose by 1?

    not that your loss was not painful, but GOD DAMNIT!

    Yeah that's a tough one. I just lost to a team despite being an A and them being a B. I just got destroyed badly.

    Buckeyes fall to 0-2 after a dominant performance by Arizona's defense!

    TEAM 1st QTR 2nd QTR 3rd QTR 4th QTR FINAL
    Ohio State 0 3 3 0 6
    Arizona 7 3 7 3 20


    Ohio State came into this game looking to control the clock and move the ball on the ground. In their opening possession they drove all the way downfield using a variety of runs, but on their second pass play of the drive Braxton Miller misread the coverage and threw a costly INT. Arizona corner Lawrence Triplett took the INT 57 yards the other way giving the Wildcat offense great field position. Two plays later Junior HB Travis Smith scored on a delay counter from 19 yards out to give Arizona a 7-0 lead.

    After trading a couple punts Arizona came up big again, this time on special teams when Senior wideout David Richards fielded an OSU punt along the sidelines and went 37 yards into OSU territory. OSU's defense would hold the wildcats to a FG with just 44 seconds left in the half. On the ensuing drive, holding no timeouts, the Buckeyes would put together their most impressive drive of the day eventually spiking the ball with one second left and getting a 42 yard FG to end the half down by seven, 10-3.

    Ohio State had a chance to capture the momentum when Arizona QB Corey James threw an ill advised pass that was intercepted by OSU linebacker Ryan Shazier. Despite the great field position, the Ohio State offense was unable to get anything going netting minus 4 yards in 3 plays before nailing a 53 yard FG to close the defecit to 10-6.

    On the ensuing possession Arizona would make perhaps the biggest play of the game. Facing 3rd and 6 on their own 33, James sent Smith in motion out of the backfield. When an OSU LB moved in position to cover him one on one James called a hot route sending Smith on a quick corner route. Smith easily beat the LB and cought the pass for an apparent first down, but he wasn't satisfied with simply keeping the drive alive. Smith would break 4 tackles from the OSU defense and take the simple pass play 67 yards for the touchdown! The score put 'Zona up 17-6 and recaptured the momentum.

    The Wildcats would kick another FG late to make it 20-6 and an interception around the 20 yard line would close out the victory in front of the home crowd. With the win 'Zona gets their season off on the right foot while the Buckeyes lose their second straight game to a Pac 12 opponent to open the year 0-2.

    It was a battle of the two best coaching records since 2011. West Virginia was all but dead until the last minutes of the game. The Mountaineers had a perfect scoring chance on the opening drive as Washington's QB Smith fumbled on a sack deep in Huskie territory. But the Husky D was, well, Husky, and forced a turnover on downs as Mexi decided to go for it on fourth and short. They quickly turned that into 6, as WR Perkins caught a pass and somehow broke away from a wall of Mountaineer defenders for an 84 yard TD. WVU went three and out, which was going to be the norm for the Mountaineer offense (17% on third down). Bubba Burns got his hands on a TD for Washington, but that was going to be the last score for a while.

    It wasnt up until the 4th Q did the frantic action start. After forcing a Washington punt, the Mountaineers knew they had to score to make it a game...they went 4 and out. But the D stood tall just like it had since the last score and only used two timeouts (huge) to force a FG attempt. And Washington missed their second FG attempt of the game. The no huddle finally took to fruition, even after a sack that knocked QB Millard out for 3 plays. But backup Athey kept the offense rolling long enough, just in time for Millard to come back in to hit Meyers in the endzone. Time remaining: 1:03. Then came the onside kick. It bounced off a Husky player and West Virginia jumped on it. Still, with only one timeout, the Mountaineers had to work fast. And with 36 seconds left, Millard got the game tying score and were heading to overtime...or are we? Mexi's gambling ways were on display all game as he sent out the offense for the win. Millard hit Jones for 2, and Husky Stadium was stunned at what had just unfolded right in front of their eyes. But whygod wouldnt be phased. He lead his team all the way into field goal range with 3 seconds left. But that one timeout in the back of Mexi's pocket that had lasted this entire time payed off. He used it to ice the kicker, and it seemed to work. The kick was barely going to be inside the uprights...but it was short.

    Great game whygodwhy1111 I got that as #2 all time game.

    #24 West Virginia 15 - #18 Washington 14

    And with the win, Coach Mexi is the winningest football coach in FBS at 49-11.

    conservative zone is the worst! I forgot how to protect against the deep ball, the answer is not conservative zone.

    that was so much more painful than my annual ass-kicking by Oregon.

    WSU 21
    FSU 28

    The way this game played out is why I have to leave this school. I am tired of losing these games, where I feel like my team should have won, but at the end of the day the team cannot get the job done. This game started well for the Cougs as CB Spencer Waseem intercepted a pass and took it 52 yards for the score. Fresno would respond with two touchdowns making the score 14-7. Between these two scores, WSU receivers and the EA Sports screwed the Cougs. On back to back drives WSU was moving the ball, but on each drive a Cougar receiver fumbled the ball. The first fumble occurred at the 1 YARD LINE. This is where EA Sports screwed the Cougs, apparently when there is a fumble and the defense recovers it inside the end zone, you cannot challenge the fumble. After reviewing the fumble after the game, it was clear to me my receiver was down, it was clear to me when it occurred live my player was down, but the game wouldn't let me challenge the call. The other fumble, was a fumble, but the first fumble killed the team. WSU would respond with a TD, but was constantly playing catch up, every time WSU scored FSU was able to respond and score a touchdown to take the lead back.
