    Just a year ago Ohio State was a field goal away from a trip to the national title. But the ball sailed wide , the Bucks fell in overtime and their national title aspirations vanished within a blink of an eye. The main benefactors of Ohio State's demise was Oregon, who sneaked into the national title game and upset top-ranked Alabama for the school's first ever national title.

    "We felt like it was us that should have been there," said fourth-year cornerback Bradley Roby, who decided to return for his senior season immediately after watching the Ducks hoist the crystal ball. "We were the nation's best team all season, had one bad half against Nebraska, and everything we worked for was ruined. We weren't going to let that happen again."

    With veterans like Roby, Adolphus Washington and Lombardi-winner Curtis Grant leading the way, the Buckeyes won every regular season game again in 2014, and then exacted a measure of revenge by shellacking the Huskers, 52-21, in the Big Ten title game. With the win the Buckeyes secured a spot in the national title, to face none other than the team that stole their spot in the same game a year ago, the Oregon Ducks.

    "Oregon deserved to be there last year and they deserved to win the title," said second-year coach Evan Speyer, who is 26-1 with the Buckeyes. "But if you look at how the standings played out all year, had we won that game against Nebraska it would have been us in the title against Alabama. Our guys are excited to be here, it doesn't matter who we play. But there's something to be said about playing a team that made the title last year because of our miscues. Our boys are fired up."

    Granted, this is not the same OSU squad that came up just short a year ago. In place of Heisman runner-up Braxton Miller is freshman quarterback JT Barrett, who has surprised many this season in the Buckeyes title run. Most pundits expected Barrett to simply manage games for a young but talented Buckeye squad, but instead the rookie signal caller has single-handedly led Ohio State to several victories.

    "His growth has been pretty incredible this year," said Speyer. "If you look at that second game against USC, we were calling plays with the mindset of 'hey, JT, just don't lose us the game.' By the end of the season we were putting the ball in his hands and asking him to win games by making plays. Time after time he did it for us and we will be asking him to do much of the same tonight."

    Barrett's growth was encapsulated in his 350-yard, 4 TD performance in the Big Ten title game. The Buckeyes will still look to run early and often, but Barrett's success will likely determine the outcome of this game, especially considering his opponent is two-time Heisman finalist Marcus Mariota, who could be playing his final game for the Ducks.

    Barrett, however, won't be trying to simply out-duel the talented Ducks' quarterback.

    "Marcus is a special talent," said Barrett. "It's not my job to go out there and match him play-for-play. I just have to sustain drives and get the ball in our playmakers hands. I've got all the confidence in the world in our defense. It's their job to match Oregon's offense blow-for-blow."

    If any defense is capable of such a task, it's the Silver Bullets of Ohio State. The Bucks' defense ranked in the top-five of nearly every statistical category, and has playmakers all over the field. Washington and Noah Spence are arguably the most talented duo of bookends in the nation. Grant collected multiple pieces of hardware in December and Vonn Bell won the Thorpe as a sophomore. Roby didn't win any awards, but the shutdown cornerback is considered to be a lock as a top-10 pick in this spring's NFL Draft.

    "We've faced some great offenses, but this is the best one yet," said Roby. "We've been waiting all month to try to stop them. We've been waiting all year to get to Phoenix. We've been waiting for two years to hoist that crystal ball. This is our destiny."

    Sweet Victory!

    Brandon Williams scores one of his four TDs on the day!

    A&M too much for Aztecs
    San Diego came out looking for blood. Their aggressive blitzing caused two early sacks and two picks on A&Ms first drives. They ran the ball well and scored the first TD of the game. The Aztecs easily won the first quarter. They failed to win any of the other quarters however. A&M focused on the ground game, mixing in the pass only when needed, and never looked back scoring 42 straight points.
    When A&M got a good lead and forced SDSU to pass, it exposed their QB, who was not up to the task. He went 9/23 for only 129 and 1 INT. Newly minted Heisman trophy winner Matt Davis overcame his early struggles, mostly due to pressure given up by the OL, and ended up completing 70% of his passes. He also had the longest run of the game with a 27 yard tackle shedding run.

    The Aggies will happily take their Sugar bowl win and likely #2 overall finish. However they are hungry for a championship in the near future. If Matt Davis returns he will have to find chemistry with his remaining teammates quickly due to a return trip to face Oregon in the non-conference schedule. It remains to be seen which underclassmen will return after a successful season.

    Stats:
    M Davis: 179 Passing yards, 57 rushing and 1TD
    B Williams: 106 rushing yards and 4 TDs
    C Clear: 49 receiving yards

    BUCKS DEFENSE STYMIES DUCKS OFFENSE TO CAPTURE NATIONAL TITLE

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    PHOENIX, AZ

    The crystal ball is returning to Columbus. The Silver Bullets stymied Oregon's high-powered offense all night long to ensure that scarlet and grey confetti flooded the field at University of Phoenix Stadium as the clock struck zero.

    The game started about as poorly as it could for Ohio State, as freshman quarterback JT Barrett thew an interception on the third play from scrimmage. The Ducks seemed poised to take an early lead, but the OSU defense contained Oregon's option attack well enough to force a fourth and goal. Coach Anderson decided to be aggressive out of the gates, and decided to attempt a fourth down conversion. It proved to be a poor decision, as Michael Bennett beat Hronnis Grasu in the trenches and sacked Marcus Mariota before the quarterback could get his throw off.

    After the Buckeyes offense went three-and-out the Ducks again drove into the OSU redzone. And once again Oregon came away without any points. This time it was safety Devan Bogard who made a diving interception on an errant Mariota pass to keep the score knotted at 0-0.

    With the momentum now soundly in hand, OSU drove down field and scored on a 30-yard Ezekiel Elliot touchdown run. The Scarlet and Grey then forced an Oregon punt and drove down field for a 14-0 lead. The touchdown drive was a time-killing one, as the Buckeyes converted two fourth-and-ones. The second conversion came on a swing pass to Dontre Wilson, who cut upfield for the 16-yard score.

    Mariota and the Ducks showed some resolve and cut the lead to 14-7 with :27 left in the half, but a pair of big plays by James Clark helped the Buckeyes extend their lead again right before half. The freshman Clark, who became a household name for making big plays in big games all season, returned the kickoff 48 yards and then caught a 20-yard pass to move OSU into field goal range.

    Leading 17-7 out of intermission, coach Speyer turned to a more conservative approach in the second half, and in Tressel-like fashion, the Buckeyes were able to drain the clock, control the ball and capture the win.

    "It was a well-fought game, and I want to congratulate Oregon on a great game and season," said Speyer. "I was very proud of how our defense played today. Holding any opponent to 10 points is a tough task, and this was the nation's most dynamic attack. They kept us in the game early on and allowed us to take a conservative approach offensively."

    With the school's eight title in hand, Ohio State will be primed to repeat next season. The defense will need to retool, with the losses of Bradley Roby, Doran Grant and Curtis Grant, but the defensive line will be back in force, and offensively the Buckeyes return just about everybody.

    "When we all signed here in 2013, we talked about winning multiple championships," said Dontre Wilson, who finished seventh in this years Heisman race. "We're not done yet, we're just getting started."

    As was the story for most of this season the Longhorns fall to USC 48-31 due to an unexcusable amount of turnovers. USC had a great defense and was all over Ash's passes all game as was most defenses this year. This is a disappointing way for many of our seniors to go out but we have to look forward and to all the talent we have coming in next year. The face of our program will be with Johnathon Gray. This year had a lot of growing pains and disappoints but as a coach I promise that we will improve next year.

    David Ash-
    31-51 461 yds 2td 4int

    Johnathon Gray
    17 att 65yds 1td

    Jaxon Shipley-
    16rec 225yds

    Kendall Sanders-
    6rec 117yds 2td

    Next year the Longhorns will bring back as stated earlier Gray but also Sanders who had a big game and we are very excited to have Swoopes at QB. Our guys need to realize we play one of the toughest schedules in the country and its a battle every night.

    Cardinal Stymie Hurricanes to Win, Finish 12-1
    Miami Gardens, FL - The Stanford Cardinal finished an incredible season last night, stopping the Miami Hurricanes in the Orange Bowl 45-35. In handing the Hurricanes' only their second loss of the year, Stanford capped a 12-1 season with a strong output from the offense, and inspired play from a defense which at times during the season, seem to play lackadaisical at times. Despite playing in their home staduim, Miami was not able to muster enough to come back after falling behind 35-14 early in the third.
    The Stanford stars of the game were players you already know. Barry Sanders Jr. finished 5th in final balloting for the Heisman, but it did not let it deter him from putting up a great effort against a stout Miami defense in the South Florida night. 2nd-team All-American Sanders Jr. finished with 27 rushes for 106 yards and 3 scores, the 3rd one putting Stanford up 35-14 in the third quarter. The Cardinal managed to rack up 190 yards on the ground, most coming on tough runs in between the tackles. Kevin Hogan played a decent game, passing for 364 yards and 3 TDs, but was once again picked off twice. Hogan would finish the 2014 campaign with 40 TDs and 23 INTS, but must weigh the option of the dollars that may come lurking from the NFL.
    Miami once was down, did not give up. Ryan Williams was having a horrible game before finally getting hot in the 3rd quarter. But Stanford held on, and will look to even greater things in the next season of 2015.

    A. Jennings RS Freshman scoring dive to get the Tigers offense rolling.

    [​IMG]
    Tigers Coach Witness gets first bowl win in Capital One in surprising fashion. The game started off on a sad note RS Junior Qb Rivers just been in a bad slump for weeks. Throwing a interception early on in the game was the final straw as he was relieved of his duties by RS FR A. Jennings. First quarter went back and forth neither team was doing well, but Nebraska got close only to throw a interception. Jennings enters the game with no pass attempts under his belt but Coach Witness was sure he can handle the task at hand.

    Second quarter things got rolling for the Tigers as red hot Jenning started completing passes getting the offense down the field. Defense was stud playing like a bowl winner would but Armstrong Qb from Nebraska was causing a slight problem. Nearing the end of the second Jennings scores off a 7 yard option run. Third nothing much happened but good defense for both sides. Near the end of 3rd Senior RB Hilliard scores 4 yard td run 0-14 going into the 4th.

    Fourth quarter Huskers started to get the ball rolling with Qb Armstrong driving down the field but scores off a 1 yard run. The Tigers was about to lay down Jennings only getting hotter by the minute manages to get a few scrambles in to keep the drive hope alive. Finishing with a 8 yard touchdown pass to Sr WR Dural who relieves also Sr WR Landry who got hurt during the drive 7-21. With the clock ticking Corn huskers drive down the field Tommy Armstrong throws a pass to Jamal Turner 10 yard run but no more time on the clock Tigers survive 14-21.

    Stats


    A. Jennings 12/15 149 yards 1 td
    K. Hilliard 16 att 81 yds 1 td
    T. Dural 3 cth 37 yds 1 td
    J. Mills 4 tkl 1 int
