    MIAMI IS HEADED TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP


    A masterful performance by Stephen Morris led the #1 ranked Miami Hurricanes to a convincing victory over the Louisville Cardinals. After the game Coach Bud Wiser was asked how he felt his team performed overall this year and what he thought about his chances at a National Title. Coach Bud Wiser responded "I think our team has played together and battled for each other all season, everyone expected us to lean on Duke Johnson the whole season but we had other intentions. Duke was a major part of our offense and got most of the national attention but if you look close at the stats Stephen threw for 4000 yards passing and we had 3 receivers with 900+ yards." When asked about the National Championship game coach answered "WE CAN'T WAIT! Our team deserves to be here and after a shoot out type of game with Louisville, we are going to be looking bring the same kind of tempo to the field in the Championship."

    Ole Miss Capitalizes on South Carolina miscues in 55-43 win
    All week we heard about rush defense, sacks, and superstar DE play but when the dust settled it ended up being an offensive game dominated by two great running backs. Ole Miss got the scoring started on the first drive of the game, with a Jeff Scott 54 yard touchdown run as he juked is way down the sidelines for a 7-0 lead. The Gamecocks would answer, finding a present in the end zone after Shane Carson lost the bowl at the goalline, the OL would recover the fumble for a 7-7 game. Defense would be the story for the next three minutes as South Carolina forced a Rebel punt, before giving Ole Miss the ball back at the Gamecock 44 on an interception. It took the Rebels 10 plays to cover the 44 yards as they found the endzone on a Wallace keeper from the 1 yard line for a 14-7 lead. Each team would tack on 7 more on quick drives, the Gamecocks a 5 play 73 yard drive seeing Shaw finding Anderson from 17 yards out, then the Rebels 6 play 75 yard drive in which Scott would score from 4 yards out. South Carolina slowed things down on the next possession going 75 yards in 9 plays and taking the game clock down to 44 seconds before half in a 21 all game. Rebels seem content to take it to half time tied until Scott broke a 15 yard run to near midfield, while getting out of bounds. They would get the ball to the 33 on more conservative play calling and Ritter hit a 50 yard fieldgoal as the clock ran out for a 24-21 lead.

    South Carolina answered first in the second half going 71 yards in 4 play with Shaw finding the endzone from 6 yards out for South Carolina's first lead of the day. After a 46 yard KR, the Rebels would answer and retake the lead after a 6 play 58 yard drive with Scott again finding the endzone for a 31-28 lead. Disaster struck for South Carolina as on their first play on the next possession Shaw threw his second pick. The Rebels again capitalized on the short field for a 38-28 lead. With their backs against the wall and facing a third and long, Connor Shaw threw a gorgeous pass to a streaking gamecock wr who had broke free, but the pass went right through his hands forcing a punt. Still holding on to a glimmer of hope South Carolina forced a big third down, but Wallace found Moncrief who broke a couple tackles a took it for 6 on a 56 yard reception. Connor Shaw would throw his third pick on the next possession and the teams would exchange a couple scores before time expired. The difference in the game was when Ole Miss was able to get the lead and South Carolina went away from their running game which was so effective. Carson had an amazing day totaling 138 yards on only 15 carries, but Jeff Scott was the star gathering 211 yards on 31 carries and 4 td. gg @The Parrothead
