    sorry i did not put up a battle Wick - even the right playbook wouldn't have helped today - you are just playing much better than me right now for sure - good luck the rest of the way

    Washington - 31
    Michigan State - 15


    This matchup of top 25 teams ended with Washington moving to 4-0 on the season. Price was 15/21 for 256 yards, a TD, and an INT. James Johnson was the man once again, with 6 catches for 79 yards and a TD. The running game struggled big time, but Price was able to pick up some good yards on the ground with the read option as the Michigan State ends rarely stayed home. He had 41 yards (including 2 sacks) and a TD. Callier and Sankey combined for a miserable 13 yards on 12 carries. Defense won the game for the Huskies. After giving up a few big plays and missing quite a few tackles on the first drive and allowing a TD, they settled down and kept Sparty off of the scoreboard until very late in the fourth. They did a very good job of keeping Michigan State's QBs off balance, keeping their completion percentage under 60%, forced 4 INTs, and came up with 5 sacks, which caused 3 fumbles of which 2 were recovered. The Huskies did a fine job of stopping a talented Spartan run game, giving Bell 32 yards on 8 carries. Near the end, the Spartans were able to put together a second full drive and got it into the end zone, but were unable to recover the first onside they'd need for the comeback, allowing the Huskies to knee it out.

    Next week Washington has a bye week, followed by conference games against powerhouses Oregon and USC. These will be the first games for Washington against teams with winning records and should show whether this team is for real.

    Utah 35
    Ariz St 0

    Utah was 11-13 on 3rd down, with one of those failures being a kneel down in the 4th quarter. On offense, ASU had less than 50 yards through 3 quarters.

    I'm not sure if they are or I am. These sliders basically make the computer defensive players unblockable and on defense my team gets pancaked every play. On the bright side, I've only thrown 5 INT in 110 pass attempts.

    Weird. Ive had a dismal running game but my players suck in that area. I have not seen dominant cpu offense but maybe that will come vs the way better teams I play later

    my run game is a horror show -even not sprinting doesn't help apparently - i hand the ball off and usually get pounded immediatey
    in practice exhibition games i stopped sprinting and my run game is awesome - not sure what is going on in the dynasty

    also despite having a really good o-line and good RB's we have ZERO rushing TD's except for QB sneak here in week 4
    we are in week 4 and we don"t have 100 yards rushing TOTAL

    this week somehow my playbook was set to default and not Kansas which is what i switched to, so I could not see all my hard work in practice and game plan in effect this week- however again we rushed for 30 yards and just got murdered

    Sliders won't help anything with user games, so you may need another game for the practice to be completely relevant.


    My running game hasn't been anything special, but I think a lot of that is trying to run out of passing formations and running more at the end of games when it's obvious I am going to run.

    After allowing nearly 40 points a game our first three games, we knew it would take a much better effort on the road at #9 TCU to get us a W. We came out and forced a couple early punts and our offensive drives stalling just across TCU's 50.. With 2:46 left in the first quarter TCU's SS Sam Carter returned a fumble 42 yards to the house to give the Horned Frogs a 7-0 lead. ​
    The second quarter we continued to force punts as our defense was playing very solid football. After those stalled drives in the first, we finally punch the ball in the endzone on a 5 yard run from Perry Jones. Toward the end of the half our defense forced an interception which gave us great field position. We were only able to tack on 3 points but we had the lead going into the half 10-7. ​
    The second half remained a defensive battle just like the first was. Both offenses really struggled in the 3rd until the TCU's offense finally punched in a 4 yard QB run with 29 seconds left. ​
    The fourth quarter was another display of great defense from both teams. TCU forced its second HUGE fumble of the game when Perry Jones was inside their 10 yard line with under 3 minutes to play. The Cavaliers were able to stop TCU one final time getting the ball with under 2 minutes to play. Michael Rocco lead a great two minute drill and our FB Zachery Swanson dove in from the 1 and took the lead 17-14 with 45 seconds to play. TCU had no magic left on offense and relinquished their first loss of the season.​
    Offensive Player of the Game: Michael Rocco 14-26 201 yards and 1 INT​
    Defensive Player of the Game: Rijo Walker 3 tackles and 1 INT​
    Next week we return home after a two game road trip to play Louisiana Tech.. 13 recruits will be in attendance as well including: Patrick Holland the #2 ATH in the Nation..​

    Iowa: 7
    Illinois: 14

    Iowa RB's couldn't run to save their lives and the passing game suffered from poor decisions and key drops en route to taking a 14-7 division loss to Illinois. The Iowa defense did everything they could to keep the game close and Iowa actually had a decent chance to tie the game with the ball inside the 30 with around 30 seconds to play, but an overthrow of a WIDE open WR that would have been a TD coupled with some nice defensive stops by Illinois was too much to overcome. Iowa falls to 1-2 in the division and needing to win out in the conference to have any chance at a BIG10 title.
