    Not quite ready for primetime, as Texas roles UCLA in the Rose Bowl, 38-14. I'll WGW do the write-up but his new offense is tricky. Lots of misdirection and he's got some speed out there. IMO, the turning point for the Bruins was early on, down 3-0 and driving. Just coming off a 50 yard run to the Texas 15 yard line, I throw a pick. Didnt score the first half and was down big by the 3rd quarter.

    Wisconsin easiley handles the Tigers to notch their first win. The new offense was effective at times, but going 9-16 on third down and a 52% completion percentage for Livingston were not good. HB Bain did show off some nice runs getting 2 TDs and Livingston was able to convert 2 3rd downs with his feet. The Badgers will need to work on their offense before the Bruins come into town.

    A Whole Lot Of Holman

    The TrippleHorn Option and pounding Defense led the Longhorns to victory. Holman came up big in his first start, justifying the coach overlooking 2 more talented passers in the depth chart. The horns found their goove on offense in the 2nd quarter. The TrippleHorn was not terribly consistant in yardage but delievered 4 big plays of over 50 yards. Holman came up big going 9-13 passing for 150 yards 1 TD, and 1 INT as well as rushing 15 times for 173 yards and 3 TD including runs of 60 and 72 yards.

    Defensively the Horns really got after the qb, with 4 sacks and a handful of hurries. Several bruin drives were terminated by the Horns pass rush.

    #4 Florida 45
    Oregon State 41

    As the dynasty wire states, this game was action packed, and the Beavers almost pulled off the upset. The game could not have started any better for the Beavers as it jumped out to a 14-0 lead without taking an offensive snap. LOLB Anthony Williams intercepted a Gators' pass and ran it back for a score making it 7-0. Then on the next possession RE Chris Hurst picked up a Gators' QB fumble and ran it back for a 50 yard TD. The Gators would respond with three quick touchdowns of their own, their second was a defensive touchdown as well. The Beavers would fight back and tie it with Myron Downs scoring on a 45 yard TD pass. The Gators then got a field goal, and the Beavers finished out the first half with a touchdown pass from Tyler Johnson to Antwan Cook. In the third quarter Florida contained Oregon State's offense forcing the Beavers to settle for two field goals, while the Gators' scored a touchdown. In the beginning of the fourth quarter Florida took the lead making the score 38-34. The Beavers offense stalled on its next possession was forced to punt, but was able to force the Gators to punt with 4:30 remaining in the game. The Beavers then took the ball down the field with urgency. The Beavers got to the Gators 30 yard line with 3:00 minutes remaining, and then started to chew the clock. The Beavers were still able to move the ball, and got ball to the Gators' 16 yard line and then the drive stalled. Then on a 4th and 7 the Johnson hit Michael Houston for the apparent game winner with 49 seconds remaining. However, the Gators would get the ball and score the game winning touchdown with 11 seconds remaining. Up next Texas A&M

    Illini Fall Just Short in Upset Bid
    Illini 22 - #20 Arizona 24

    Illini fans knew coming into this season that 2015 might be filled with heartache. However, the heartache they were expecting was that of a rebuilding squad who is likely going to suffer major bumps in the road. That first bump was scheduled to be tonight in Tuscon against the 20th ranked Wildcats. With the talk that was surrounding Arizona in the preseason about contending for a national title, Illinois was not supposed to hang around.

    But not only did they hang around, they gave Willie a scare that almost slammed the national title dreams shut before they ever got started. Illinois would start out of the gate and stutter - as expected. After a three and out, Arizona would pound out a drive where the Illini defense looked like tackling dummies on the practice field - as expected. But after that initial drive, things started to get a little funky. The teams would exchange interceptions, leaving the Illini in great field position. However, on third down, Freshman James Blake would be sacked, and the ball popped out. The fumble was returned all the way for a touchdown, but a holding call gave Arizona the ball back on their side of the field. This allowed the Illini to make a stop and generate a little momentum themselves.

    That momentum created by the defense spurred the offense as well, as they were finally able to drive deep into Wildcat Territory. The drive would stall at the 6, and Illinois would have to settle for a chip shot field goal. On their next drive, Illinois would not be stopped as Blake would throw his first career TD pass and give the Illini a 10-7 halftime lead.

    The lead was short lived, to say the least. Arizona would respond on the first play of the second half on an 80 yard bomb from Franklin to Abrams, giving Arizona a 14-10 lead. The teams would exchange long, time consuming drives and trade field goals in the third; making the score 17-13 Wildcats going into the fourth.

    Here's where things started to unravel for Illinois. With the ball and a four point deficit, they elected to continue to run the football regardless of situation. That included a 3rd and 12 run that would only get 3 and put the ball on the Arizona 31. Out came Weddle for a 48 yard try - a potential career long for the senior kicker. However, it was not to be as the ball bounced off the crossbar harmlessly to the painted turf in the endzone. Arizona would respond with another score, giving them their biggest lead of the game: 24-13.

    Illinois would live up to their name, as the Fighting Illini showed that they still had some fight. With under 5 minutes to go, Illinois would storm down the field. The drive would stall inside the five, and Weddle would make the chip shot field goal with 2:19 remaining in the fourth. Coach Cheez would elect to kick it deep, and the Illini defense held Arizona to a 3 and out. James Blake would charge back on the field, needing 60 yards to get a touchdown, while having only 50 seconds and 3 time outs to complete the task.

    - He would only need two plays.

    After overthrowing Lankford over the middle, Blake would hit Edwards down the left side for sixty yards and the desperately needed TD. With the score 24-22 and only 0:37 remaining on the clock, it was an obvious 2 point conversion situation. Blake took the snap under center, and just as the receivers were making their breaks Blake would be hit. He tried throwing, but couldn't get it to the outside where Lankford was wide open. the ball fell harmlessly to the turf just as the Illini fans hearts sunk back into their chests.

    Ohio State 58
    West Virginia 7

    New starting QB Craig Howard throws 4 first half touchdowns as OSU pounds out an easy 58-7 victory. New HB Skyler Brooks looked great as he ran for 129 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown. The Ohio State defense looked great against an overmatched West Virginia offense, as they caused 6 turnovers, including 4 interceptions and 4 sacks. Ohio State had better be sharp next week as they travel to Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns in a huge early season battle.

    #22 Iowa 21 @ Texas A&M 24

    In a game of attrition, the Texas A&M Aggies found a way to protect their rainy turf and upset a top 25 Big 10 foe to open the 2015 season. Willie Higgins nailed a chip-shot field goal from straight away to give the Aggies the win as time expired. Iowa came in with a big hopes, thinking this was a game they should win, but left with a sour taste in their mouth and an uphill climb for the rest of the season after allowing the Aggies to control the clock, and nearly the entire 4th quarter, giving up 10 points to close the game. The Aggies in fact rallied from an early 4th quarter touchdown by big play wide out Ben Clark, who finally found a seem in the middle of the defense and caught a 22 yard touchdown to give the Hawkeyes a 21-14 lead.

    TAMU running backs tallied 182 rushing yards in a committee effort, including 2 impressive touchdowns by Matt Fry and Isaac Neal of over 30 yards, where they would not be denied, running over, around and through potential tacklers. The final touchdown by Neal came with the Aggies down 21-14 mid way through the 4th, during the first of two precise and balanced drives that had Iowa reeling defensively. The 3rd back (starter) Johnny McCloud had nearly 200 all purpose yards. Jr qb Alfred Howell had a nice game as well, throwing for 195 and a touchdown, with 0 ints (although the Iowa defense had their chances). As mentioned he led his team on 2 very crisp drives to end the game and even threw a strike to Wr Michael Golden on 4th down with a minute to go, giving the Aggies the yardage they needed to be in field goal range.

    Iowa's story went quite differently, as the running game wasn't bad but wasn't terribly impressive and never got a chance to get continuity. Cam Strong carried only 13 times for 91 yards, but 1 of those carries went 50 for the first touchdown of the game for the Hawkeyes, and the rest were scratch and claw for every inch. Qb Jermaine Robinson had a decent game throwing for 214 yards and 2 touchdowns, but he overthrew some wide open receivers at critical junctures of the game, and the receiving corps didn't help him, dropping passes all game long in the rain.

    Oregon 21
    Oklahoma 15

    The Ducks traveled to the Sooner state for an early season showdown. Both teams struggled to start the game, as the defenses dominated the first half. The Ducks held a slim 7-3 lead at half, behind a 31 yard strike to WR Tommy Richard. In the 3rd, Oklahoma cut the lead to 1 following another field goal. The Ducks responded with a solid drive and scored on a 9 yard td run by Kellen Brown. The Sooners responded with a 16 yard td pass to mike Townsend but failed to convert the 2 point conversion. The Ducks got the ball back and knew they needed to run some clock at the least, if not score. First and second downs were failures, resulting in 3rd and 12. QB Buck Townsend got good protection, but when he saw the FS jump the slot route, he decided to go deep down the sideline where he had single coverage. Richard came down with it for a 64 yard gain. Two plays later Brown took it in again to give the Ducks a 21-12 lead. The Sooners marched right down the field but stalled inside the 10. But instead of kicking the easy field goal, coach Aaron decided to go for the touchdown on 4th. The Duck defense held and sealed the victory.

    Good game Aaron. Your defense was tough.

    Yeah that was a fun one. I had a few missed plays that could've swung it, but dakota made more plays. The dropped TD at the end of the first half hurt as did the long play to Richard. The backbreaker was the 4th and goal at the end. I decided I would line up and see your defense, and if I didn't like it take the delay of game and kick the field goal. Well I thought I scored but they must've ruled him out of bounds. I went back and watched the replay after the game and even took a snapshot of him clearly in bounds, but oh well. Even if that happens I'm still down 2 kicking off with less than 2 minutes left. Overall, it was a fun game and a bit of a surprising defensive game for a large part of it.
