    LSU - 45
    Auburn - 7

    This game was kind of ridiculous... LSU forced 6 fumbles, although they only recovered 2. Both teams threw 3 picks. Auburn's QB completed 11/12 passes in the first half, but did not complete a pass in the second half. Ware had over 200 yards rushing.

    I don't know who is in my doghouse more... Jefferson Airplane throws a pick on every single touch pass (it's kind of funny sometimes). Shepard just drops a bunch of passes every game. He had 2 this game that didn't count because they were after encroachments, he had one hit him in the facemask, and he dropped another when he got hit, but apparently that one didn't register. Against Tennessee he just dropped everything.

    Anyway... LSU was able to move the ball pretty well, and did a decent job on defense, aside from a few big plays. As always, the pressure was very good, and the defenders made some decent plays on the ball. LSU definitely hits harder than any team in the country. Reuben Randle had another dominating performance, and the line did well in protection. Ware almost had another TD, but dove to the turf at the 3.

    LSU has a bye week before hosting Alabama. This game will most likely decide who will represent the SEC West in the SEC Championship game later this fall.

    #7 Stanford - 19​
    Washington - 38​

    This game was a huge concern for Washington as they did not want to get lost within the BCS/PAC-10 contender discussion, and they worried about this until halftime of that game. After that, Washington's run-dedicated defense and time consuming offense took over.​

    The first two quarters didn't warrant a lot of excitement except for long-driven scores. However, on the first kick return of the game, Washington HB Callier took the return to the house and got underdog Washington some early momentum. Chris Polk had some good runs within the first half, mainly one that would be around a 40-yarder for a TD. However, the game remained close with an All-American QB at Stanford's helm.​

    The 2nd half showed off a more exciting contest with Chris Polk exploding for more intense runs and TDs, and ending his day with 214 yards off of 22 attempts for 3 TDs. Stanford would attempt to stay in it by scoring a crucial TD, but then on their next drive throw an interception to the Player of the Game MLB Dennison who would take it to the house and end Stanford's hopes of a comeback.​

    While Polk is very obviously the player of the game, the defensive unit was the unit that one the game for the Huskies. Mainly the play of star player MLB C. Dennison. He had 9 tackles a sack, and an INT for a TD. He was not the only one with an impressive tackle count this game though, as the defense played way better than they have all year.​

    A huge win for Washington against a very stacked team.​

    Oregon sticks it to the Buffaloes. This was the most complete game of the season for the Ducks. Darron Thomas improved on his last showing by going 15 for 21 for 148 yards and 3 TDs. He used short passes on the afternoon to help with the victory. With Thomas' performance Oregon did not have to rely too heavily on the running game. James, Barner, and freshman Lache Seastrunk still combined for 202 yards and 4 TDs. The defense was dominating from the get go. Colorado was only able to gain 1 total yard of offense in the 1st half. The Duck defensive line applied pressure all afternoon. Wade Keliikipi and Taylor Hart had 2 sacks each. Michael Clay, Terrell Turner, Josh Kaddu, and Ricky Heimuli each added a sack. Eddie Pleasant, John Boyett, and Cliff Harris all intercepted passes in this one.

    Oregon will host Washington State next week in another PAC 12 battle.

    Key Stats:

    Darron Thomas - 15-21 148 yards 3 TDs
    LaMichael James - 11 carries 87 yards 2 TDs
    Josh Huff - 4 catches 47 yards 2 TDs
    Duck Defense - 8 sacks 3 interceptions

    Notre Dame Wins in a Nail Biter

    [​IMG]

    South Bend, IN -- Notre Dame's offense decided to awaken and they couldn't have picked a better time to do so. The hated USC Trojans came into the game number four in the country and undefeated. The Irish, came into the game tenth in the country with one loss against Nebraska by one point.

    Dane Crist was 12 for 24 on the day with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. The running duo of Cierre Wood and Jonas Grey continues to being rolling with Gray racking up 71 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and Wood with 64 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. Michael Floyd had a nice night with 5 catches for 104 yards and 1 touchdown.

    Notre Dame started out strong on a big pass play which found Floyd in the back of the endzone to give the Irish the early 7-0 lead. USC was able to strike back at the end of the first quarter on a 23 yard scramble by backup QB Jesse Scroggins.

    USC was able to capitalize on a mental blunder by Notre Dame's punt returner Bennett Jackson. Instead of calling for the fair catch, Jackson caught the ball, got drilled, and gave the Trojans great field position which they cashed in to take a 14-7 lead.

    Notre Dame struck back before half time on a 20 yard pass to Roby Toma for the score to make it 14-14 at half. The third quarter was a defensive battle with neither team finding much sucess until USC's Matt Barkley was able to connect with WR Brice Butler for a 28 yard touchdown making the score 21-14.

    The fourth quarter was where things got really interesting. Notre Dame found paydirt early on a Jonas Grey 2 yard rushing touchdown to tie the score early in the fourth. USC struck back on the very next offensive play with the speedy HB Marc Tyler going right up the middle for a 79 yard rushing touchdown. The Irish struck back on their next possession with Cierre Wood finishing the drive on a 9 yard rushing touchdown making the game 28-28 with 4:24 left in the game. Both defenses buckled down the next two series, but the Irish were able to gain the final possession with a little over 1:15 left to go in the game. The Irish were able to march down the field to give kicker David Ruffer, who has had a very fine year thusfar for the Irish, a chance to win the game with :02 left. Ruffer was able to drill the 36 yard field goal and the Irish completed the upset and continue their remarkable season.

    Georgia 38
    South Carolina 9

    The Bulldogs dominated this match, getting off to a very quick start. South Carolina received the opening kickoff. On their first play from scrimmage Garcia's option pitch went off the back of a Georgia defender and MLB Robinson caught the pitch on a fly. He ran the fumble back for a TD. Garcia also made an ill-advised pass in the third quarter that was picked off by CB Williams. This interception was returned for a TD. In total South Carolina turned the ball over 3 times. As for Georgia's offense, the team put together an impressive effort against the Gamecocks. Murray bounced back from some shaky performances with a solid game. He passed for 201 yards while completing 13 of 23 pass attempts. He finished with a 1/1 interception to touchdown ratio. The run game also had a solid game, especially HB #1 Thomas. He carried it 24 times for 159 yards, including a 72 yard TD run. HB #2 added 37 yards and a TD.

    Michigan squeaks past Wisconsin in tough road game
    weeee.jpg

    #8 Michigan 17
    Wisconsin 14

    The Wolverines headed into Camp Randall for a huge Big Ten matchup this week. The crowd was roaring and Michigans offense was clearly shook, unable to produce anything in the first half aside from a lousy FG. Denard would also break his shoulder and go out for the game like always, but we have magical doctors so expect him back next week! Wisconsin would pony up 2 FGs early and the game would go to the half with UofM down 3-6. Michigan finally busted the game open with a HUGE 82 yard run by HB Hopkins seen here:

    http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/85537736

    Michigan would then control the game after another big TD drive led by a long pass from Gardner to Roundtree. Wisconsin would score again but Michigan would melt the clock away with Hopkins legs. He finished the game with 145 yards and 2 TDs. Hopkins looks to break the 1000 yard mark in 2 weeks after the BYE. Michigan will continue to road trip and head to Iowa City for a huge matchup with Coach Uncleho. The winner of this matchup will be in the drivers seat of the Legends division.

    Iowa 0
    #12 Ohio State 20

    This game was smashmouth B1G football. Both defenses brought their A game. The silver bullet defense held Iowa to 83 total yards on the day. The secondary was flying all over the field, making life difficult for Iowa's QB Vandenberg. The biggest play of the game occurred in the second quarter, when Iowa's starting HB Coker was lost for 10 weeks with broken ribs. Iowa moved the ball well before that injury. On Ohio State's first play from scrimmage, Joe Bauserman threw an INT trying to beat a safety on a 9 route in Norm Parker's famous cover 2 defense. He would settle down after that and finish 8-12 in the game. The Buckeye running game didn't gain much traction, but moved the ball well enough to put up 1 TD and 2 FG. The other Buckeye TD was scored by OLB Moeller on a pick-6. GG uncleho .

    Kentucky was looking for the upset and almost got it. John Brantley was benched in favor of Jeff Driskel and the Gators tried to protect him by running the ball. And that Jeff Demps did. Demps ran for 247 yards and 2 TD. The last TD was the game winner with just 10 seconds left. This sets us up for a huge matchup with the Georgia Bulldogs. The winner will likely earn a spot in the SEC championship game.​
