Game Summaries: Week 7
Post in here.
LTech vs NMSU
offense: With Livas out must do 2 things
1) Use Porter wisely
2) Have a better, more efficient passing game.
1) Contain the pass
LTech 37 NMSU 19
This game had just about everything. There were missed xp, a safety, fumble rec in end zone for TD, and attempted missed FG return. NMSU played a great first half even leading 10-9 with under 2 min left in 2nd qtr. In second half LTech took over. Led by Porter, Jenkins, and Smith, LTech turned a close game into a rout. Porter had 3 TDs and was a great option out of backfield. Jenkins had 291 yds passing 1 TD and had a couple of nice long completions. Smith had 2 sacks and a forced fumble that was recovered for a TD. Backups played most of 4th quarter and allowed a 75 yd TD pass. NMSU's QB Fleming played well in loss.
Porter 67 yds rushing, 4 rec 107 receiving 3 TDs total
Fleming(QB) 17-25 204 yds 2 TDs
Eastern Michigan wins in a bizarre game, 37-9. After trailing by three field goals for a good chunk of the game, the Eagles finally ignited on offense, and the defense held up while also adding in two interceptions(one being a pick six during sim). Once again, this game was won by EMU's stable of running backs, along with a few key runs by the QB on the option. Schmitt was shaky in his first start back, but played well enough to help his team get the victory. Connection issues plagued this game. Our boys struggled mightily at first against Ohio's tough D, but we were able to hit some nice passes on our first touchdown drive to set up the run. Good game.
Now at 6-1 overall, and 3-0 in the MAC, the Eagles have accomplished their goal of becoming bowl eligible with five games still remaining. Moreover, they are prime position to win the conference.
Key Stat: 14. Fourteen first downs for the Eagles' offense, which again was able to play ball control once the run game got going.
Player of the game: Duane Priest - 29 car, 95 yds, 2 TDs.
Up Next: Northern Illinois. After splitting their tough road trip, the Eagles return home for two important games against MAC foes, with the second coming against Toledo in week nine. EMU will be favored in the next three contests before their showdown with Bowling Green in week 11, and it will be interesting to see how this team deals with growing expectations from a fan base which is clamoring for a MAC title.
Akron 19 @ Buffalo 24
Buffalo moves to 4-3 with the win. In the snow...we rocked it for 3 quarters, but then couldnt stop grandma with a walker in the 4th quarter. Roosevelt had another Roosevelt-esque type game...only 1 TD but as usual the main producer on offense. 4 rec 103 yds and a TD. We spread the ball around for a change and it kinda worked as the rest of the recieving corps didnt drop 8 million passes. Buuuut Jorgensen still tossed 2 picks. 1 was my fault as i tossed it up into double coverage...the other was all Jorgensen being a crappy QB lol.
Roosevelt ran twice for 23 yds. But Super Mario Henry added in 82 on 21 attempts.
We were attempting to run the clock out in the 4th knowing we only had a 21-7 lead entering the 4th, wanted to keep Akrons offense off the field, but that didnt work too well either.
Fun game tho...4-3 baby, don't call it a comeback, I been here for years.
Roosevelts season stats:
31 rec, 655 yds, 4 TD
10 Rush att, 71 yds, 2 TD
9-15 47 yds 1 TD, 1 INT, 95.0 passer rating
16 KR, 418 yds, 26.1 avg, 1 TD, Long 96
19 PR, 180 yds, 9.4 avg, 1 TD, Long 72
No one multitasks like Roosevelt multitasks.
Its all about the Roosevelts babaaaay lol (sorry, horrible joke)
Hawaii (1-3 overall and 0-2 conf.) visited the Kibbie Dome in Mosow, Idaho for a conference game with the Vandals (3-3 overall and 1-1 conf.) :
Both teams trade blows in a qtr highlighted by passing from both teams. The Vandals secondary continues to miss one on one tackles as they continue to go for big hits in the open field and opposing WR's seem to step right by them even if they are hit dead on. The Vandals need to recruit better tacklers for sure. end of 1st qtr score : Idaho 14 Hawaii 06
Sophmore WR, Preston Davis of the Vandals, had a huge qtr., catching two TDs. The first a WR screen for 30 yds, but the second was a thing of beauty. In the final minute of the half, QB Nathan Enderle saw Davis streaking down the sideline with one on one coverge. A beautifully thrown ball was hauled in by Davis and he took it the rest of the way to complete a 76 yd scoring strike. end of 2nd qtr score : Idaho 27 Hawaii 16
The Vandals switched to ball control to start the 2nd half and HB Deonte Jackson, cousin of NFLer, Steven Jackson... ran wild. He scored 2 rushing TDs and QB Nate Enderle added another WR screen TD, this time to WR Eric Greenwood. The Vandals ended the 3rd qtr in complete control. To emphasize the pt., the Vandal special teams stripped the Rainbows on thier kick return to end the qtr. and get the ball back to start the 4th. end of 3rd qtr score : Idaho 48 Hawaii 23
Idaho converted the turnover into a quick TD and then just held on tight trying to contain a frenzied Hawaii passing attack throughout the rest of the qtr. The Rainbows outscored Idaho in the 4th qtr., but it was far too late. Idaho dominated the game... winning a conference game at home in front of an appreciative crowd.
FINAL SCORE : IDAHO 55 Hawaii 37
Key stats : Idaho QB Nate Enderle has a huge day, throwing 4 TDs to 4 different rcvrs and amassing 358 yds on 14 of 21 passing. His rating was 272.7 on the day. Idaho RB Deonte Jackson, an offensive WAC player of the week already this season, ran strong again on the day accumulating 164 yds on 25 carries with 3 TD's. Six different Vandal defenders had sacks on the day as they kept after senior Hawaii QB Greg Alexander. Alexander had a big day despite the sacks, passing for 364 yds on 27 of 42 attempts. He had 3 TD 0 INTS. JR Rainbow FS, Mana Silva led the Hawaii defnese with 14 tackles.
#18 Boise State @ Tulsa 27-16
Defense came on today stopping the air attack of the Golden Hurricanes. Jeremy Avery had a huge day on the ground and Kellen Moore threw two picks.
Kellen Moore 13-23 193 1TD 2INT
Jeremy Avery 24-182 1TD 3-65 1TD
DJ Harper 11-52 1TD
Titus Young 4-67
Richie Brockel 3-34
Austin Pettis 2-25
Max Hall was eratic but managed to throw for over 300 yards and 3 scores (rushed for another.) as BYU took care of SDSU. Dennis Pitta was held in check he managed only 4 catches for 64 yards however, 2 of those catches were TD's. The defense had two or three int's which is a start. They have the worse scoring D in the conference. BYU has a big date coming up with TCU as they try to crawl back into the MWCC picture.
You and I have a couple of big games coming up here....
I know bro and if we both keep it up it may be in bfr in the big game.
