Game Summaries: Week 3, Season 4
Post in here.
Run Oregon Run
Oregon : 38
Arizona State : 16
Having to turn to there #2 RB for the next 11 weeks, Oregon came out and ran the ball more than ever.
They ran the ball 49 times for 287 Yards, 18 First Downs and 4 TD's. Most of the running went to #2 RB Parks, who carried 20 times for 128 Yards and 3 TD's. QB Thomas ran for 50, QB Hawkins ran for 48, RB Bell ran for 38, and WR Lane ran for 23. It the best ground attack that Oregon has shown since LaMichael James and Shinaba put in a 400+ yard effort against KSU last season. The Ducks stuck with there spread zone offense, and at least for today, it paid off.

Notre Dame @ Michigan State
Notre Dame 41 Michigan State 21
Notre Dame outlasts Sparty in East Lansing to move to 3-0 on the season. What looked like an easy win, however, came with some uncertainty. Early in the game Irish QB Dayne Crist went down for the game with a broken thumb on his non throwing hand. Insert Nate Montana who played well in his absence, going 21-29 for 263 yards and 2 scores.
The story of the game was the Irish tailbacks, senior Jonas Gray and true freshman Tim Rivers. Both backs combined for over 35 carries and 3 scores. Although they did not average a ton of yards per carry, the Irish established a presence on the ground and chewed up the clock in the 2nd half.
We'll know a lot about ND after the next two weeks after the Irish take on their two biggest rivals in Notre Dame Stadium, Michigan and USC, in successive weeks.

Bye week for Cal. In the mean time I am trying to catch up to the powerhouses of USC and UCLA in recruiting the local top prospects.
