    #16 Miami 35
    #10 Clemson 34

    Tonight Clemson jumped out to an early 21 - 7 lead in the first thanks to an errant pitch by Miami QB M. Moore. The Tigers were shut out in the 2nd and by halftime, the Hurricanes had closed the gap to 21 - 14.

    The second half was pretty much back and forth the entire time. The score at the end of the third was 28 - 21, Clemson. What did the Tigers in was failure to punch the ball into the endzone twice in the forth and having to settle for 3 points. Twice in the forth quarter, the Hurricane defense held the Tigers inside the 5, keeping them from reaching the endzone and putting the game out of reach. A last minute TD strike put the Canes up, stealing the victory from Clemson.

    Kentucky 23, Louisville 15

    The Wildcats came out on fire from the opening kickoff looking for revenge for last years last second loss at Louisville. The Wildcats dominated the first qtr. but only had a 28 yard field goal from Stegall to show for it. The game changed when the Wildcats olb Carter intercepted an option pitch and returned it 24 yards for a td giving the wildcats a 10-0 lead. After the Cardinals third punt of the first half the Wildcats qb Clark found Freshman wr Kennedy streaking down the sideline and hit him in stride for a 54 yard td pass to make the score 17-0 Wildcats mid second. It stayed 17-0 heading to half. The Wildcats started the second half with the ball and started to drive down the field. Coach PNC had already discussed ball control and trying to run as much as possible in the second half. After 2 good runs the Wildcats got greedy and looked for a deep pass over the middle. Huge mistake. A cardinal Dt hit qb Clark as he was releasing and Linebacker Wilson Picked it off and raced 40 yards for a td. 17-7 good guys. The cardinal had chances in the 3rd to score more points but the Wildcat defense refused to give in. Early and mid 4th the wildcats freshman kicker made field goals from 24 and 33 yards to stretch the Wildcat lead to 23-7. After Stegall missed his 3rd field goal of the game from 38 yards out, the Cardinal offense finally came alive. throwing the ball, they moved 74 yards in 38 seconds. A 6 yard td pass and 2-point conversion made the score 23-15. In a game that the Wildcats had dominated from start to finish, they know had to recover the tricky onside kick to preserve an 8 point lead. The Wildcats did and 1 knell down later, the Wildcats had secured a huge rivalry win 23-15.

    QB Clark 14 of 25 251 yards 1 td and 1 pick

    HB Brown 28 Carries forr 111 yards and a TD

    FR. WR Kennedy 4 catches 90 yards and a TD

    FR. Kicker Stegall 3-6 from inside 45 yards

    Despite the Widcats struggles to put the Cardinal away, Coach PNC is excited with his team with 5 freshman starters on defense. We are only going to get better, says coach pnc, and with games like this our freshman will grow up faster.

    Pittsburgh 45, Iowa 14

    For the third straight week the Panther's find themselves playing a top 15 team. This time however they took out their early season frustrations on the Hawkeyes beating them by 31. The story of the game was the Pittsburgh stifling defense, no this is not a misprint. Do not expect any Iowa players to enter the Heisman race this week. Pitt's defense forced three turnovers and knocked out starter Ken Hall with an injury. Seth Tate again looked like a star in the making throwing for over 450 yards and 4 touchdowns. Next up for Ptt, two consecutive bye weeks. These bye weeks would have come in very handy had they been scheduled in weeks 8 & 9, when Coach BigKing will be out of town. Nevertheless, Pitt is still hoping to be in the hunt for a Big East Championship when coach returns.

    Navy Defense Step Up With Turnovers
    Navy 38
    Temple 28

    Navy and Temple played evenly the whole game with the exception of 3 Temple turnovers, one was returned for a TD. Temple had the ball most of the game, but Navy made big plays on defense and special teams. On Temple’s first possession they drove the field before tossing a pick-6. They then scored twice to take a 10-7 lead. Then Navy scored 17 straight points and took a 24-13 halftime lead. Navy won the game by 10, but Temple did threaten with about 4 minutes remaining, but were shut down on 4th. Temple ran 75 plays as compared to the 37 of Navy and outgained them 460-277. Down the entire game, Temple had to pass and could not get into their gameplan.

    Navy receiver Matt Stone had another great game, catching 3 passed for 61 yards and a TD. He also returned 4 kicks for a 31 yard average. HB Corey Norman rushed for 120 yards and 2 TD.

    Navy is now 3-0 and will face #25 Cincinnati next week in Annapolis. A win here could give Navy some much needed national exposure.

    Turnovers doomed the owls! Navy has a really solid O-Line that was able to hit the 2nd level and destroy my linebackers regularly. Good luck to you Kapono.

    Miami 35 Clemson 34

    Saturday The Miami Hurricanes made a strong and clear impression for the college football nation. They are no longer pretenders. They went to the trenches with the Tigers of Clemson and came away with a hard fought victory. They faced many struggles in the ballgame with being down by 14 at one point the biggest. A great offensive performance all around and the defense came up big late in the fourth quarter twice to hold the Tigers to a field goal inside the 3 yard line. "That's how you play football inside the trenches" says LB Eugene Smith. That being said during these heroic defensive stops the Hurricanes were still down by six points. So the offensive still had to go win the game. Junior QB Marshall Moore stepped up and led his team down the field to a game winning drive. "That's what every kid dreams about growing up. Especially against an in-conference team. Not only that but the team that took the ACC title from us last year. It just felt really good and I'm sure we'll see them again this year in the ACC title game". Those words from Moore were the words of a confident QB who's determined to lead his team to greater things than just an ACC title.

    Marshall Moore went 19 for 28 with over 200 yards passing. He played his second straight game without an interception and took control and care of the ball. The only turnover of the game was on a bobble from a HB pitch that got away from HB Paul Howell. Howell says "I just took my eyes off it too soon because I was ready to make a play up the field. That won't happen again". That being said Paul Howell was the player of the game with another game over 100 yards carying. Howell played an important part in the passing game as well.

    All-American Reciever O.J. Jones had four catches as well and made the key catch with only 17 seconds to go late in the fourth quarter to put the Hurricanes at the 2 yard line. A couple plays later Howell punched it in with the game-tying touchdown. Then all was left was a PAT. The PAT was successful and the Tigers couldnt do anything with that little time left. The Hurricanes came out on top 35-34 on a very entertaining game.

    Like I said during my season preview is this the Hurricanes year finally back to glory? Is this the year we are among the collegiate tops? Is this the year our beloved Canes take home the Coache's Trophy?

    Stay thirsty my friends.

    Gamecocks embarrassed at home!
    Another week and another humiliating loss for the home team. We won't bother to even write an article because this editorial is completely disgusted with the product being placed on the field in Cola Town. All we will do is tell you the stats of the game and what to expect next week.

    Once again Carolina's defense rose to the occasion of forgetting it was on a football team and not playing squash. On the opening play of the game, an Alabama possession, Crimson Tide starting running back Tyrone Mackey broke off a 71 yard rushing touchdown while breaking FOUR tackles in the process! Mackey would be the third running back Carolina has faced this year that looks to be running for the Heisman trophy. He would finish with 232 yards and 3 touchdowns. As of now plans are being made to have his name and jersey number tattooed on the Carolina starting defense.

    Once again South Carolina fans left the stadium disappointed and angry with what they witnessed on Saturday. At least everyone made good use of the free third quarter hot dog coupons that were handed out at the front gates.

    Next week South Carolina travels to Central Michigan to take on the Chippawas. This should be a win marked on the schedule but with this team there is no telling.

    ADVICE TO ALL CAROLINA FANS THIS WEEK: Don't waste your money road tripping to Michigan next Saturday because you just might find yourself driving home angry, drunk and depressed!

    Cincinnati players and coaches could not explain how they were manhandled by the underdog Midshipmen. Navy impressed by running the football and shutting down Cincinnati’s passing attack. This game was over early as Cinci’s 1st drive ended in a pick-6. Navy did not let up and led 33-0 at halftime. During the 1st drive of the 2nd half, Navy’s 1st team offense was on the sidelines. Navy held Cinci to 225 yards and forced 3 interceptions. Navy is 4-0 with the rival Air Force Falcons coming into town week 5.
