    Week 5

    N'western: 41
    PurDon't: 17

    N'western came out fired-up for their first B1G Conference game of the season. Purdue had not answer for N'western dominating offense. Kain Colter went 14-16 for 159 yards and 1 TD, and was sacked 3 times by the Boilermaker defense. Perkins and Green proved once more that both are a force to be reckoned with; totaling 200+ yards rushing and 4 rushing touchdowns (Perkins 3 TD's). All together N'western's offense combined for 392 total yards, 24 first downs, 0 turnover and a T.O.P. of 21:56 compared to Purdue's 6:04. Purdue had no answer on offensively: 260 total offense, 2 trips to the Red Zone and a fumble loss'd. N'western travels back home to face Penn St and hopes to take another conference win.

    Great Week for the Spartans!

    Not only did Michigan State sign their first recruit of the year, they beat Ohio State!

    Michigan state got off to a rocky start in the first quarter.
    Maxwell threw two interceptions on two deep passes. The result was that the Spartans failed to capitalize early on Buckeye miscues.
    It also made the Spartan coaches reel in the QB and shorten up the passing routes for the day.
    All that being said, the Spartan defense was strong and held Ohio State 0-0 at the end of the 1Q.

    The second quarter saw Ohio State going for it twice on 4th down deep in Spartan territory. Both times the green and white held tight and stopped the Buckeyes!
    Then on kid of a freak play Maxwell hit HB Bell deep for a 69 yard TD pass. With the safeties eyes glued in the Michigan state backfield the HB runa nd angle route and then just kept going straight up the field. With option 1 and 2 covered on their routes Maxwell saw the HB had a step so he went deep. Of course the coaches freaked out because he had just thrown two INTs last quarter attempting similar deep passes. But this time it was magic and Bell scored off the pass.
    Spartans took a 7-3 lead to the locker room at halftime.

    Leading at halftime in front of 105,000 crazy Ohio State fans gave the team a boost in confidence.
    It showed on the first possession of the second half as the Spartan defense broke up a Buckeye option play and caused a fumble. Players were diving all over the place trying to recover the ball. Adams cam up with it for Sparty on Ohio State's 33 yard line.
    Maxwell would end up scrambling for a 3 yard TD run to take advantage of the turnover. Maxwell is no runner so when his passing options were taken away and he started to run Spartan fans missed a heartbeat, but he made it in untouched.
    14-3 Spartans end of the 3Q.

    The Spartans had great field position all day and it made moving the ball really tough for Ohio State. The Spartans would score another TD after a Buckeye turnover when RB Nick Hill pounded one in from 1 yard out. At 21-3 Ohio State finally got it going and scored off an 8 yard pass Guiton to Smith. [Starting Ohio State QB Braxton Miller was knocked out of the game in the 4th quarter and is expected to miss the rest of the year with a shoulder injury.] The Buckeyes went for 2 but failed. Then the Buckeyes kicked onside and got it. However, the Spartan defense would answer back when RE Gholston used his huge hands to snag a low pass from the back-up Buckeye QB.
    Michigan state kicked a field goal following the INT to further ice the game, final score 24-9.

    Maryland gets CRANKED in Blacksburg

    Maryland came into VA Tech this week for their first huge test and failed miserably. They were just way to overpowered by the talent on the VA TECH roster. The Hokies were able to roll on offense uncoverable in the passing game and dominant on the ground. QB Brown threw for 375 YDS and 3 TDs but threw 4 game destroying INTs. He was terrible most of the game until the 4th. The main problem of the Terp continue to shine in having a TERRIBLE running game. Our starting HB blows and it could be a few years before we having something we can truly call a running back. Maryland heads home for another tough ACC matchup next week as they host a hot Wake Forest team.

    Louisiana Tech 17
    Virginia 42
    The Cavaliers would get a chance to show how they would respond to a little prosperity. After jumping into the top 20 following two great road wins against GT and TCU.. Louisiana Tech made the trip up to Virginia and seemed to stay on the bus until nearly half time. The Cavaliers jumped out to an early 35 to 0 lead on back of a big-play offense. Michael Rocco was really clicking with the WR's in the second quarter and put up a real cushion for our defense. La Tech was able to tack on a FG right before the end of the half to make our lead 35-3 going in.​
    The second half our offense seemed to come out with a little lack of focus and were not able to score in the final two quarters. Our defense still put a lot of pressure (11 sacks) on La Tech's offense and held then to on two TD's in the second half.. The lead was cut to 35-17 but with 3 mins left in the 4th OLB LaRoy Reynolds intercepted a pass and returned it 45 yards for a score, putting the game back out of reach. The second string was able to run out the clock and sew up another win for the Cavaliers. ​
    Offensive Player of the Game: Michael Rocco 14-24 277 yards 4 TD's 1 INT​
    Defensive Player of the Game: MLB Sam Greer 7 tackles 1 FF & ROLB Daquan Romero 5 tackles 3 sacks​
    Next week we are back on the road and looking to avoid an upset against The Duke Blue Devils..​

    Arizona St 35
    California 21

    The Sun Devils went on the road to Berkeley staring a disastrous start to the season in the face. Things looked extremely grim early, as Cal received the ball to start the game and marched right down the field for a TD. ASU was able to move the ball on their first drive, but QB Taylor Kelly threw a costly TD, which Cal turned into quick points for a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. The Sun Devils were marching down the field again, when Kelly was concussed on an option run. In comes Mike Bercovici off the bench. Bercovici started the first two games, but was pulled due to ineffectiveness. Bercovici threw for 4 TD on the day and did not turn the ball over.

    The star of the offense was the line. ASU racked up 407 yards of offense and was able to control the line of scrimmage, with 10 pancakes. HB Cameron Marshall ran for 120 yards and a TD and scored another TD on a screen pass.

    Next up for the Sun Devils is Iowa in Tempe.

    Colorado 30
    UCLA 14

    Colorado gets the win on the road on the back of a monster day by HB Tony Jones. The Buffaloes got on the board first after their initial drive stalled and faced a third and 12, QB Nick Hirschman sold the screen play well and Jones got some good blocking and took the ball 61 yards for the score and a 7-0 lead. UCLA would answer though putting together their own nice drive that ended in an 18 yard TD pass by QB Brett Hundley that tied the game 7-7. I think a couple of punts by both teams later, Jones broke a 72 yard TD run on the first play of the drive and a 14-7 lead a roughly midway through the second quarter. This started a string of 20 unanswered points by the Buffaloes, including 10 more in the second quarter, with the TD coming off of a Jones 44 yard scoring run. Halftime score was 24-7 Colorado.

    Not much happened in the second half, Colorado scored a FG near the end of the third quarter that was answered by a 64 yard bomb from Hundley to Jerry Rice (isn't he dead yet?) that made it 27-14 Colorado. CU would get another FG over halfway through the fourth quarter to make the final score 30-14. I think UCLA threw an interception in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters and they were all drive killers and at least two of them turned into points for Colorado.

    Colorado gets UTSA at home next week.

    The Illini came into the game after their conference opening win against Iowa last week, 14-7. That ended a two game losing skid where Illinois was outscored 91-33, so the good defensive showing against the Hawkeyes was a step in the right direction. But Penn State had won two in a row after stumbling out of the gate against Ohio, and were hosting their conference opener in a sold out Happy Valley, in addition to a thrilling comeback win against Illinois last year in Joe Paterno's final game.
