    Illini Hold On at Oregon State
    Illini: 14 7 0 3 24
    Oregon State: 7 0 7 7 21

    The Pacific weather was calm in Corvallis, but the crowd was rocking at the start of the Week 3 matchup between the Beavers and the Illini. Oregon State would start off the game with the ball, and would complete multiple 3rd downs to movie the ball downfield. Once into the redzone, Stephens would launch an ugly pass off of his back foot that was intercepted by Ferguson, marking the first dodged bullet by the Illini all season. Three plays later, Battle would find Fernandez along the sideline. After breaking the safety's poor tackle attempt, Fernandez would easily sprint into the endzone for the 94 yard touchdown.

    On the next Illini possession, Battle and Fernandez would connect again - this time for 63 yards giving the Illini an early 14-0 lead. Oregon State was not about to be outgunned on their own turf, and on the last offensive play of the quarter Stephens hit Cook for 57 yards and made it 14-7. Illinois would control possession for much of the second quarter, and capped off a long drive with a two yard handoff to Jackson, making it 21-7 going into the locker rooms.

    Considering that the Illini were getting the ball to start the second half and already had a 14 point lead - the anxiety in the crowd was understandable. The Illini offense would go to work, and tick away nearly half the quarter by pounding the ball on the ground. However, the drive would be fruitless, as a sack would push Graves onto the edge of field goal range. Graves would miss the 51 yarder, and the Beavers had life.

    Oregon State used their second chance wisely. With two minutes to go in the third: Stephens would throw his second TD of the afternoon. Dotson was on the receiving end of the 19 yard strike, and the Beavers were down by only seven.

    With 2:51 left in the fourth, the Illini made a critical 37 yard field goal which upped the lead to 10. It only took 1:21 for Coach Wazzu to respond. Stephens would laser the ball down the field to wide open receivers. The last of these passes - a one yard pass to Cook making the score 24-21. Oregon State needed the onside kick, but they touched it before the ball had gone 10 yards giving the Illini possession. After two failed run plays, Battle would drop back to pass. He broke one tackle, avoided another, and fired a pass to Bush. Bush made the catch, sealing the first win of the year for the Illini.

    Illinois will have the week off next week. That means they have two weeks to prepare for the conference opener. One can speculate that they will need every single hour of it gameplanning for a Penn State offense that has embarrassed the Illini defense over the last two years.

    Texas catches some breaks and squeaks out Victory at Ohio St

    Things did not look did not look good early for the longhorns. The first offensive position ended when WR Adam Butler caught a 20 yard pass only to fumble while pushing through a defender at the goal line. Ohio state opened the game jumping out to a 10-0 lead. Texas came back with a Brian Holman TD pass, then took a 4 point lead on a 53 yard fumble recovery for a TD.

    Ohio State answered back on the next offensive play throwing a 79 TD pass to TE standout Matt Jenkins. Texas then threw a pick, gave up a FG, went 3 and out, and gave up another TD with 23 seconds left in the half.

    Down 13 Texas tried to advance the ball into their Kickers 60 yard FG range. Holman Bounced his first 2 passes directly off the chest's of waiting defenders. On 3rd down with 10 seconds remaining, Texas still had a chance at points if they could advance the ball 25+ yards to try for a long FG. Nate williams caught a 20 yard pass over the middle and made a rather inept spin move at his own 45 yard line. Williams was wrapped up by a defender while near by defenders gathered around to watch. The defender made an Ill-advised strip attempt and Williams pushed through the tackle. The collasped defense was now out of position, and Williams followed his escorts to the endzone for the 77 yard TD. Closing out a 2nd quarter that saw 38 points scored.

    Down 6 Texas recieved the second half kickoff. Holman lead his team down to the 2 yardline before being carted off the field. Backup Aaron Cook took over and gave Texas a 1pt lead on a FB option. The teams traded punts and turnovers for a while. Texas getting 3 INTs, and in a twist of fortune texas stripted the ball from a defender after throwing an INT themselves. Ohio State came back cutting the lead to 8 with 2:20 left, but failed to recover the onsides kick, and gave up the one firstdown texas needed to run out the clock.

    The ball bounced the longhorns way more than the buckeyes which proved to be the difference in a shoot out.

    UCLA - 31
    Oklahoma - 28

    After 2 bye weeks, the Bruins finally get to see the playing field, opening the 2106 season with a 31-28 victory at Oklahoma. The game was back and forth for the most part, no team ever leading by more than a score. In the 4th quarter with UCLA up 7, the Sooners scored the game tying TD with just over 4 minutes left. This played right into UCLA's hands who used up the remaining clock with a punishing ground attack, getting into chip shot range and hitting the winning field goal with 2 ticks left on the clock. The Bruins balanced attack kept OU's defense off-balance, while the Sooners turned one dimensional pretty quickly, only running the ball for 30 some yards and throwing it 34 times. This was a big win for the Bruins and I hope it sets the tone for the season. Up next, the pesky Beavers at their place...lost last time I was there, hoping to escape this years game with the W.

    @aarondramp
    gg man...sorry for waking you up but I needed to get the game in while the wife was out. I know that 8:30pm PST is last for you on the East Coast but thats what this league was built for. Hope it didnt throw you off your game too much.

    No problem. I wasn't asleep yet...just watching the basketball game in bed. I know it's the late night league, I just forgot about it.

    I'm thinking about a new playbook for this year and next as my running back this year is no good, and he's a senior. Not to mention, he got hurt on the 2nd drive and didn't return until the end of the 3rd. Thinking about rolling with Baylor and slinging it around.

    #21Boise St 48 @ Texas A&M 56 3OT

    Texas A&M wins an instant classic at home in Triple OT. Too much to write up so quick game summary:

    1st qtr: Boise goes up 10-0 quickly, forcing 2 turnovers.

    2nd qtr: Texas A&M fights back to score 21 unanswered, then Boise scores a td, then Aggies kick a fg to go to half up 24-17

    3rd qtr: A&M takes a bit of control and scores a td to open the half, Boise kicks fg 31-20.

    4th qtr: A&M stalls inside the 10, and can't put the game away, has to kick a fg for 2 td lead. Boise scores 2 tds in final 2:54 to tie it up. Boise had also gotten the ball back on an int and was inside the 30, looking at the winning score, but throws an int to preserve OT for the Aggies.

    OT 1: Aggies strike first with a TD, Boise responds on the first play to tie.

    OT 2: Boise runs it in. Aggies take their drive to the 8, can't get anything on 1st, 2nd or 3rd down. But they convert 4th down and goal from the 8 on a rollout pass just before Howell is hit.

    OT 3: Again in serious trouble 4th and 22 is converted from the 47 yard line for the Aggies, who then march into the end zone. Boise St can't move the ball and finally it ends on a sack on 4th down!
