    Indiana 23

    Iowa pounds the Hoosiers into the ground with backup HBs Hurd and Conley.

    Iowa's offense was unstoppable on the ground behind the bruising style's of their two HBs. Hurd rumbled for 220 yards and 3 TDs on 26 carries while Conley added 72 yards and 2 TDs on 9 carries.

    Indiana's lone big play came on a FB run in which their FB broke 5 tackles on his way to a 60 yard TD run (highlight on the wire, it's ridiculous.)

    Other than that, there wasn't anything notable about this game. Indiana was outclassed in every way and Iowa moves to 5-2 on the season.

    This game was a hard fought Big Ten affair. Michigan started out slowly for the first three quarters on offense scoring on three Gibbons field goals. Penn State moved the ball fairly well on the ground and through the air in the first quarter scoring its first touchdown with 1:29 left in the first quarter. The key to the first half was Michigan keeping the game close thanks to three interceptions of Nittany Lion QB Bolden, two of which Michigan turned into field goals. Going into the locker rooms at the half Michigan lead 9 - 7.

    In the second half Michigan's defense continued to play well but could not force Bolden into any further turnovers. The third quarter almost ended without a score but Penn State kicked a field goal as the quarter ended. The final frame followed the same hard hitting defensive script as the preceding three until Michigan QB Devin Gardner connected with Jerald Robinson to move the ball into PSU territory. Backup HB Hakim Taylor then crossed the goalline on a 4 yard run to push the score to 16 to 10 following the PAT. On the preceding Nittany Lion drive Bolden silenced the 100 thousand in attendance by connecting with his receiver across midfield and give the Nittany Lions a shot at victory. The go ahead score was twenty yards away but Bolden found himself facing a 4 and 10. Bolden not to be deterred found a streaking HB Goss up the middle of the Michigan defense as he crossed the goalline for an eventual 17 - 16 lead. Devin Gardner hooked up with Jerald Robinson for a 45 yard catch and run down to the Penn State 14 yard line, where Fitz Toussaint would break loose on the next play for a 22 - 17 lead. Bolden again would make it very interesting as he his one last heave down to the goalline was nearly caught by Kyle Goss.

    Great game Bravejaf!!!

    This was a sloppy game for the Bulldogs, but they came out with the home victory. Both lines played pretty horribly. Georgia has a bye next week before the annual rivalry game in Jacksonville against the Gaytors.

    UCLA - 31
    #2 FSU - 28


    This was the most amazing game I have ever played in this league and I had no problem with winning or losing at the end.

    The first quarter was primarily dominated by UCLA as they had the ball for the majority of it during their first scoring drive capped of by an 8 yard run by new starting HB A. Barr. Florida State would get the ball finally but throw a quick pick to UCLA SS Stan McKay. UCLA was up 10-0.

    The second quarter was completely dominated by FSU as they went on two scoring drives as UCLA's offense stalled out for the rest of the half. FSU HB Kevin Lester was a beast all game as he eluded tackles A LOT and grabbed first downs.

    Halftime score: 14-10

    After the half, FSU gets the ball but their offense stalls and gives the ball back to UCLA. HB A. Barr took a handoff for 49 yards all the way FSU's goal line and then FB Jayson Allmond scored the TD on a play action roll out from QB Byron Bray (While almost being sacked 5-8 yards back).

    FSU would score on their following drive with impressive running and the passing of Star QB Scott Jones. He would eventually hook up with Victor Simpson for a 25 yard touchdown.

    Score at the end of the 3rd: 21-17

    UCLA would score on their next drive with an impressive run after-the-catch from freshman WR Mike Schroeder for 25 yards and a TD.

    FSU would then attempt to milk the clock with an impressive drive and eventually put it in the score with their HB Lester. UCLA got the ball back, panicked, and threw an int on third down. The game seemed doomed with Lester in FSU's backfield.

    However, after many first downs, UCLA's tough, young defense stopped the Seminole offense after a crucial holding penalty. With one timeout left, UCLA had to make it down the field in a minute-thirty. The Bruins put together a very impressive drive up the field with excellent short passing by Byron Bray and crucial catches by the WR core. Finally in the red zone, Byron Bray throws a strike to WR Richardson who NEARLY crosses the plane but ends up at the 1-yard line. With no more timeouts, the Bruins rushed to the line and with ONE second on the clock hiked the ball and threw a desperation pass to their very tall HB Anthony Barr who desperately hung on while being hammered to seal the win for the Bruins with no time left. (Videos are in the Dynasty Wire)

    Great game, Ceewo. I hope to play you again in the future.

    Miami 44

    Ga Tech 24

    Despite this game being a big win, it still pissed me off. Two of my three turnovers should have been reversed but thanks to EA giving the refs no logic when reviewing plays I lost out. The first was a fumble on a kickoff return where both knees and his back touched the ground before the ball got ripped loose but the refs said no, legit fumble :rolleyes:. Then another fumble, the receiver never caught the ball, bounced off his hands, lands on the turf and called a fumble, which Ga Tech recovers...play deemed unchallengable. FUCK YOU EA. Oh and an option team throws for around 400 yards on my defense, they barely ran the option. Anyway onto the summary. Our defense scored on two big turnovers and Young lead the day with 3 TD passes. Freshmen receivers Tremblay and Weber showed their worth once again as they both got 100 yards receiving and a TD each. Storm Johnson returned this week but did not carry the load, he still managed to squeak in a score of his own.

    Miami continues to be one of those teams who will probably bounce between #20 and unranked at 5-3 (4-1). We still control our destiny in the ACC though.

    Stats

    J. Young 15/23, 301 yards, 3 TD

    B. Tremblay 5 Rec, 103 yards, TD

    B. Weber 5 Rec, 100 yards, TD

    D. Fuller 8 Tackles, 4 TFL, Sack, FF, FR, FR-TD (Shaping out to be a worthy recruit)

    Defense overall had: 4 FF, 3 FR, INT, 11 TFL, 2 TD, and 1 Sack

    Great Game Kzoo. Your play calling kept me on my heals all game long. I put this loss on the defense. I was not able to generate much of a pass rush which hurt. Side note, Chris Bush seems to be going through one heck of a sophomore slump. His freshman year he had 20 sacks, but so far only 5 this year. He has still put pressure on the QB, but just isnt getting there. On the game winning drive I thought I had it wrapped up when MLB Jeff Luc had an opportunity at an easy INT on a tipped pass, but dropped it. This ends FSU's winning streak at 23. Thanks Hova for jinxing it :)

    Yeah those interceptions killed me. It also didn't help that my run game was completely ineffective. A change at HB is coming and I'm going with #3 HB Silas Redd. Dukes and Goss are higher rated but not nearly as skilled.

    "Tigers drop decision in Columbia"

    This was one of the worst offensive performances of all time. After exchanging punts, SC put 3 up on the board and it was shortly answered by LSU to end the first quarter 3-3. In an all too typical SEC 2nd quarter, punts and turnovers ruled the day. However, C. Shaw was able to drive the field and throw a short score to Sanders to end the first half. LSU started the second half with a FG to cut the lead to 10-6. LSU thought they caught a break in the 3rd quarter when Marcus Lattimore was injured for the game. However, J. Giles entered the game and broke off a 61 yard power run to put LSU down 17-6. LSU then finally woke up on offense when Matt McDaniel completed a pass to Kendron Boone on a 70 yard TD pass. LSU coverted the 2 PT attempt to end the fourth quarter down 17-14. LSU's defense could not stop SC as they scored 2 fourth quarter TDs and took home the win 31-21. McDaniel went 21-47 for 375 yards and 2 TDs and an INT. Mike Ford could not get going rushing for 29 yards on 11 attempts. Kendron Boone led the way receiving with 3 receptions for 103 yards and a TD.
