Game Summaries: Week 1
Post game summaries in here.
A Surprising Start!
EMU - 31 Kentucky - 14
Coming into this football game, the Eagles were confident that they could keep the game close and possibly win, but no one could have been expecting this result. Up against a relatively good Kentucky offense, Eastern Michigan planned to use ball control as their best defense, and did so with great/unexpected success. Terrence Blevins began the scoring with a touchdown run to give his team a 7-0 lead. The Wildcats would quickly answer with a long pass to even the score. Again, a steady diet of Blevins lead to six as EMU struck back, 14-7. After another quick score by Kentucky on fourth and goal, the defenses seemed to settle in. Playing the field position game gave the Eagles a short field just before the half, and they would move into position for a FG, 17-14.
The second half was all Eastern Michigan. Kentucky just didn't have the ball often enough to do much of anything, and even when they did, their QB was not smart with it. This was mostly due in part to the Eagles' defense, which was able to generate enough pressure to force some costly overthrows. Running back by committee was the order of the day for EMU, and the solid ground attack gradually wore the speedy Wildcats' defense down. Leading 24-14 going into the final quarter, another long, pounding drive would up the lead to seventeen, and break what spirit Kentucky had left. Miscues in both play calling and execution lead to the upset, and some fans down in Lexington will wonder why their team didn't try to run the ball more consistently when they clearly were having early success. They might also question their QB's mental toughness, as he seemed rattled out there at times.
Overall, the Eagles looked impressive offensively, as QB Andy Schmitt managed the game with a decent day throwing the football. (16-26 170yds 1TD). It's important that this unit avoids turnovers, as at times, the defense looked suspect in the front four, AND the secondary.
Rushing Yardage: EMU - 232 Kentucky - 57
Player of the game: Terrence Blevins - 64 yards and 2TDs on 17 carries. His play set the tone and gave the team a major boost when things were looking dicey early on.
Next Week: @ . The Eagles go on the road in what should be a good early season match up against the FIU Golden Panthers.
THE UTES vs Utah St.
Freshman QB Jordan Wynn is an upcoming Star!! He came out and did not let the jitters of his first College Football game get to him? Coach BK was qouted
"He is a born Leader"
This was a definite warm up game for Utah. The Utes Dissected STATE with the pass to get close to the goal. If they needed a Pass to score they would. If a Run was needed, it was easily done. This game looked like 12 graders playing 9th Graders a total massacre!! The second string team came in in the 3rd and finished out the game with 1 TD run.
J. Wynn 303 Yds 3 TDs
R. Stowers 14-120
S. Shakerin 5-164
D. Reed 4-61
M. Asiata 3-45
Next Week: San Jose St.
Prediction: Should be another warm up game before #12 Oregon comes a Knockin
Shut up and Shut out in El Paso! 38-0 at the grimy hands of UTEP.
Not exactly what the Buffalo Bulls had in mind starting off with an easier game. The defense played better than expected minus a few missed tackles later in the game when the outcome was already decided.
It has already been decided Zach Maynard is no longer the starting Quarterback in Buffalo and has been benched in favor of Cory Jorgensen. Maynard threw 4 picks in limited duty, and couldnt hit the broad side of a barn. He went 7 of 25 for 93 yards. The Bulls have no one to compliment Naaman Roosevelt. it looks to be a long season in Bulls Hit country.
we would've liked to give Henry the ball more but when you're down early you kinda end up abandoning that game plan. Naaman "Theodore" Roosevelt finished with 9 receptions for 142 yds.
All in all I was dissatisfied with my teams performance, and will look to change up more than just the QB for week 2. Namely, score. Horrible, horrible game. I dont think I ever saw a team play so badly against an unmanned opponent.
Kickoff weekend in college football and TCU started off with a bang....
"We recruited well....."
#12 Oregon 23 @ #14 Boise State 18
I am very disappointed in this loss. Oregon wasn't really able to stop us all game. We were able to stop them all game. Stats will show that we completely dominated them. Kellen Moore was sacked 7 times. 3 times inside the Duck red zone we got penalized for holding on huge 1st down gains. Moore was hit 3 times while throwing the ball and 2 of those were pick sixes. The last was a game ending tip to the defensive end while he had his back turned. Frustrating way to start the season but we will bounce back next week.
Oregon received the ball to start the game and drove down the field only to shank a FG. We managed to get the ball inside Duck territory yet Kellen was hit while throwing popping the ball in the air that was turned into a pick 6. Next drive was pretty disgusting as Moore was injured on first play. We had to run the ball because coach controller decided to go conservative. We punted and after a few tackles for losses Oregon found themselves punting inside the 5.
7-3 as Boise gets a holding penalty and sacked twice inside the red zone.
14 as Oregon gets another pick 6 after punting.
Boise gets the ball back and gets a huge play on a corner route but stopped inside the red zone again. 14-6
Boise State gets in the end zone finally but a hit on the QB results in a failed 2 Pt. conversion. 14-12 Oregon lead
Oregon drives down the field and converts on 2 huge 3rd downs but is stalled after an incompletion inside the 10. 17-12
Boise State is stopped 4 times at the goal line.
Next possession the Broncos score on a toss to the right with 1:24 left. We fail another 2 Pt. conversion. 18-17 Boise State leads for the 1st time in the ball game. Wouldn't last long as Oregon takes it to the house on the ensuing kickoff. 23-18 after Oregon fails their 2 Pt. conversion.
Game ends as Kellen Moore is hit for the 3rd time while throwing and plops the ball to a back facing defensive end.
Kellen Moore 21-30 304 1TD 3INT
Jeremy Avery 22-186 1TD 4-53

Key stat right there...sorry bout the loss CA. That's all it takes...
Confidence was very high for the Idaho Vandals traveling to play an away game at N. Mexico State in week 1. The Vandals very specific and determined game plan to pound the ball was blown up from the start and they found themselves having to make changes on the fly. The N. Mx St Aggies led by Sr. RB - M. Colston, dominated the 1st qtr jumping out to a 20-0 lead (missed x pt).
If not for Idaho's 83 yd kick off return to start the 2nd qtr by back up RB Princeton McCarty, the game would have surely slipped away. By going to a short passing attack, the Vandals managed to set up 17 unanswered pts themselves in the 2nd qtr to get within 3 pts of the Aggies going into the half. The difference in Idaho's production for the qtr was simply using the pass game to set up the run rather than run to set the pass.
The Aggies appeared to regain their composure to start the third qtr with a long drive down the field. Sr. Idaho saftey Virdell Larkins changed that by picking off an errant pass and returning it 83 yds for a TD to give Idaho it's first lead of the day. The Aggies responded with another long drive, this time capping it with a TD to regain the lead and set up a very tense 4th qtr.
The Aggies capitalized on Vandal QB Nathan Enderle's only bad pass of the day, when he missed a wide open rcvr and threw a pick. The Aggies took that and scored first in the 4th qtr to take a 2 score lead. Idaho came right back with a long drive of their own scoring on a 1 yd run by HB Deonte Jackson to pull within 4 pts. The Vandal defense rose to the occassion with 2 minutes to go, creating a 3rd and long and then hurrying Aggies QB J. Fleming into an errant throw picked off by Idaho's Issac Butts who took it to the house 21 yds and gave the Vandals the lead again. The Aggies had 2 minutes get the ball back into position to kick a FG to tie. With the home crowd behind them, the Aggies did more than that... sealing the game w/ 23 seconds to go on a 4 yd TD run - by player of the game, senior RB - M Colston who racked up 134 yd rushing on 14 carries and had 4 TD's. Final score : 41-37 Aggies.
The Vandals came into this game overly confident and go home to Moscow 0-1 in conference play. The offense was not effective on the ground or in the air. They moved the ball, but not without great effort. In the bright spot of the game for Iadho.... The Vandals were not expecting big plays from their defense, but that's exactly what they got. Two pick 6's kept them in the game and they hope to see more of that in their next game vs. Jake Locker and the Washington Huskies at Washington.
BG OFFENSES STRUGGLES, LOSE OPENER TO TROY
Was it overconfidence by coach Ryty? For whatever reason, the Falcons offense struggled to put points on the board and Tyler Sheehan threw 4 interceptions as Troy defeated BG 24 - 21 ar Doyt L. Perry Stadium. Mr. Sheehan's statistics pretty much told the story -
15 - 45 for 183 yards, 1td and 4 int's with a solid 57 QB Rating
Troy was lead by 5 foot 6 RB DuJuan Harris. The Junior RB rushed for 63 yards on 12 carries and added 50 yards receiving with 2 TD's.
Ist 2nd 3rd 4th Total
Troy 7 0 7 10 24
BG 7 0 0 14 21
4:48 TD Troy: D Harris, 36 yd pass from L. Brown
1:20 TD BGSU: J. Sanderson, returned interception 60 yds
2:09 TD Troy: J. Jarboe, 52 Yd pass from L. Brown
5:15 TD Troy: D Harris, 44 yd run
4:06 TD BGSU: J. Campbell, returned interception 61 yds
1:03 FG Troy: S. Glusman, 40 yd fg
:26 TD BGSU: T. Pronty, 25yd pass from T. Sheehan
Definitely a tough loss for BG and their "star" QB Tyler Sheehan. It doesn't get any easier next week as the Falcons travel to Missouri to battle the #25 ranked Tigers.
(Didn't really write anything down about my first game but here is a short summary.)
Connecticut 17 @ Ohio 31
The Bobcats came into this season with a new coach and offensive scheme - the triple option aka fleXbox One. They wanted to run in around and through this Huskies defense and they did just that. After getting injured on the first drive of the game, QB Boo Jackson was gone for the game and replaced by fellow senior QB Brandon Jones who came in and on his first play threw a touchdown pass. In the end he lead the Bobcats to a victory going 5-9 for 90 or so passing yards, 19 carries for 72 carries and four total touchdowns to get them the win 31 - 17 over the Huskies. Overall the 'Cats ran the ball 46 times for close to 300 yards on the ground.
even tho our star QBs were pretty close in stats (especially INTs, I had 4 by my starter too) at least you scored lol. Stupid UTEP from C-USA shut me out! but my star QB, hes on the bench...god he annoyed me, i never had such a bad passing game EVER. This week tho, we're working on a new playbook. New starting QB, new offensive playbook, new offensive coordinator if you will lol.
SHOCKER IN SOUTH BEND!!
WOLF PACK DEVOUR LEPRECHAUNS
WOLF PACK HAVE DONE IT!!!!!
Nevada Traveled East to face the ND Fighting Irish.. And an upset it was.. Nevada was on defense first and ND took the ball right down the Field for the Early 7-0 lead. Nevada got the ball back and responded well. The pack threw left to its alpha back Colin Lippincott for a huge gain of 55yrds. it would set up the option run for TD by Qb Kaepernick from 1yrd out. bringing the score to 7-7.. ND would pick off a NV pass and set up at the 30.. The Wolfpacks new swarm defense held strong and only have ND the 3pt FG... The combination of the NV passing and ground attack amounted to 14more points for NV giving them the 21-10 lead after one..
The 2nd and 3rd quarters would be all defense.. both sides battled back and forth. it wasnt until 4mins left in the 4th that NV broke the back of ND.. NV DB I. Frey would get his 2nd INT of the game and take the pick 47yrds back for 6.. 28-10. Notre Dame would respond with a Clausen pass to Floyd from 37yrds out to bring the score to 18-28.. Nevada then put the ball on the ground and hammered away.. TB Lippincott scampered in to seal the win with 1 min left in the game. giving NV the 35-18 win.. and set the stage for a great season!!
QB - Kaepernick 17-28 for 296 0TD 1INT.
TBs - Lippencott 16- 62yrds 2TD
Kaepernick 10- 44Yrds 2TD
Taua 3 - -11
WR - Lippincott 8 - 201yrds
Taua 7 - 76yrds
Green 2 - 19yrds
2 Sacks 2 INTs 1TDs only gave up 81yrds on the ground and 92yds in the air.
Coach T2Express had this to say after the game.
"I am very proud of this ball club. It takes a team effort to come out here and play at a place like South Bend and come away with a convincing win. Today we put Nevada on the map.. Now we have to show the country that we are for will. Our defense was going to be our #1 question. i think today giving up only 173 yrds to ND is a statement. and our offense put up nearly 400 yrds. we need to be better with our blocking up front on offense. On defense we need to stop the run..
QB - Clausen - 6-17 92yrds 3INTs 2TDs
TB - Allen 13-97
Clausen 4- -16
WR -Floyd 2-47 1TD
Allen 1 -29
Aldridge 1 - 1
Rudolph 1 - 5
Kamara 1 - 10 1TDs
1 Sack, 1INT 2 FF 1 FR
wow...big win T2.
Mendenhall had no answer for Mr. Murray!
Too much Demarco Murray OU rolls over BYU.
While Max Hall put up a fight, Demarco Murray solidified himself as a Doak Walker and Heisman candidate. Murray accounted for all 5 OU Td's on the day. Max Hall threw for over 300 yards in this one but Murray stole the show.
BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall said "# 7 was unstoppable tonight. We will get better on defense. . . I promise you that. The season is not over we have some big games left and a conference championship to fight for. Cougar nation should be proud these young men went up against the national runner up. We just need to execute a lil better. We wll be fine."
Thanks ryty.. its without a doubt a huge boost for my program.. the buster hopes are still alive for another week in Reno..
Good victory, T2. Definitely a solid start.
make sure to involve Taua more. he is a solid fullback that can greatly help that offense. He is dangerous out of the pistol with Kaepernick.
Rams Humble Buffs
In a game that took place at a neutral site (Invesco Field), the Buffaloes still could not find an answer for the Rams.
The first quarter went by quickly. The Rams took the opening drive deep into CU territory before an errant option pitch by QB Grant Stucker hit the turf and was recovered by Buffs safety Patrick Mahnke. The turnover led to Colorado's only score of the game. After the turnover, a couple rushing first downs and a 44yd completion from QB Cody Hawkins to WR Scotty McKnight put the Buffaloes inside the 5yd line. Two plays later, RB Darrell Scott takes it in from 3yds out. 7-0 CU
The Rams open up again driving. They manage to sustain this drive and push it over the goal line when Stucker finds TE Eric Peitz for the 7yd TD connection. 7-7
A good series by the CSU defense limits the Buffs on their next drive, and gets the ball back to the offense with time remaining in the half. The Rams make the best of the opportunity and again push towards the endzone. This time SR RB Alex Square hits paydirt on the ground from 2yds out. K Ben DeLine makes the PAT and sets the Rams in front 14-7 with :44 on the clock. CU runs the clock to end the half. 14-7 CSU
Colorado opens the second half with the ball and Cody Hawkins proceeds to throw a pick less than a minute in. FS Elijah-Blu Smith is helping out over the top and reads the seam route, jumping in front of the receiver to take away the passing lane. A couple plays later, JR RB John Mosure bulldozes his way into the endzone from 1yd away. 21-7 CSU
A back and forth game for the next quarter sees the CSU defense generate 2 more turnovers, one a forced fumble on an impressive hit by SS Klint Kubiak, and another interception, this time by CB DeAngelo Wilkinson. The second of the two turnovers turned into a TD as Square again went in for 6, scoring on the ground from 8yds, taking two defenders in with him. This was the final nail in the coffin with just over a minute remaining and a 3 score lead. 28-7 CSU
Colorado was not done trying to score though. An errant pass on second down went into the hands of nickel CB Gerard Thomas. The offense trotted back out, and with no timeouts remaining for CU, kneeled on the ball to end the game. 28-7 CSU
A great game by the CSU defense for generating turnovers. This is the best any of my defenses have looked in any of the TF leagues I participate.
My offense was good, but not great, moved the ball well on the ground (178yds) and I was solid through the air when needed (98yds). 8 of 13 on third downs and 4 of 6 in the red zone. One was my fumble and the other was the late TO that I kneeled on. So really 4 of 5. I can live with that.
POG came from defense for both teams. Mahnke for CU (10 tkls, 1 defl, 1 FR), Smith for CSU (4tkls, 1 INT, 1 FR).
Stucker - 9/17 98yds 1TD/0INT 0sacks 1Fum
