    Miami 27

    Miami overcomes a horrible offensive showing with hard hitting and opportunistic defense to survive at home against the Yellow Jackets. Brandon Greene looked lost for most of the game throwing two interceptions on the day and completing 12 of 30 attempts. His inaccurate and inconsistent play bogged down the offense and left the defense to carry the load. Fourtunately the 'Canes front seven was up to the task as they stopped the Jackets option attack for most the day only having one breakdown all evening. It was almost a costly breakddown as GT QB Mike Walker broke loose for 94 yard TD run on an option keeper. But the 'Canes came firing back as Green found his favorite target P Blanco in the endzone for an eleven yard TD connection and go ahead score. The next play from scrimmage saw Walker drop back from center and misread the Miami defense. SR CB Courtney Toth stepped in front of Wlaker's pass and returned the ball to the GT 9 yardline which Alphonso Harris quickly turned into six point on a run off tackle. Toth earned 'Cane of the Game honors with the interception to go along with two excellent special teams plays and a fumble returned for a TD in the first half. Miami next faces Miami before the rivalry game against Va Tech in Blacksburg. At 3 - 4 Miami needs three victories out of the rmaining five games to be bowl eligible but games against VT, Georgia and Bama will make that one tough road ahead.

    Clemson 14
    Virginia Tech 41

    In a game that is extremely important in ACC play, the Virginia Tech Hokies were able to route the Clemson Tigers. It looked as though it might be Clemson's turn to win, as they drove down the field on their first drive. They then fumbled the ball. Following a long run by McGee, Virginia Tech scored to take a 7-0 lead. Clemson answered with a nice drive of their own... which was answered with another score by Clemson. This was the last time they scored. Clemson had a chance to go up by two scores, but were unable and gave the ball back to Virginia Tech. An interception allowed Virginia Tech to get down to the 2 yard line, but were forced to settle for a field goal. From then on, Virginia Tech scored repeatedly and played better defense.

    Players of the Game
    Lee - 6 tackles, 4 TFL He did not rush the passer all that well (although he did have a hurry), but did amazing against the run. He made it very difficult for Clemson to run to their left.
    McGee - 12 att, 202 yds, 2 TD He found holes and broke some tackles. The line also did an outstanding job.

    Buckeyes 21 Minnesota 3

    OSU holds the anemic Minnesota offense to 128 yards, while the Gophers held the Buckeye offense to a solid 199 yards. Minnesota coaches came into this game knowing it was going to be hard to move the ball. Minnesota gathered 64 yards on the ground if you discount QB Nick Watson's 9 sacks. OSU players were spotted pregame pitching a tent in the Minnesota backfield. Watson put together 96 yards in the air on 6 of 13 passing with 0 TD's and INT's. Senior tailback Scott Bell put together a respectable 49 yards on 16 attempts, all things considered. Junior Chris Battle chipped in 15 yards on 4 attempts. Freshman LT received a learning experience on the day, giving up 3 sacks.

    Minnesota did however have a bright spot- the Gopher defense was flying all over the field all game long registering 5 turnovers. MLB Pat Harris, FS Steven Willis, and SS Jeff Long each hauled in an interception, while CB Ross Sims and ROLB Jesse Smith each recovered a fumble (one an intercepted pitch on an option).

    Head Coach Kasper had this to say after the game:"You know, I want to hold my head down after that game but we really played pretty well. I could get into how losing is never good enough, but honestly I'm damn proud of this team. We took some huge strides today and it was a great learning experience for every single player on this team."

    Minnesota will host Michigan State next week. The Gophers are hoping to stop a 3 game slide coming out of the hardest stretch of their schedule.

    Minnesota did everything they needed to do. The controlled the clock 17 minutes to OSU's 11 and they won the turnover battle 5-0. But somehow the Buckeyes would prevail. We turned the ball over on the first four possessions, but managed to get a score late in the 2nd quarter to take a 7-3 halftime lead. Ronnie Adams replaced the injured Taylor McKenzie and scored one a 40 yard TD run midway through the 3rd. The Buckeye defense allowed very little on the ground and sacked the Gopher QB 8 times when they did try to throw the ball. This win places Ohio State and Penn State on a collision course two weeks from now that will likely determine the Big Ten Championship.

    GG Kasper. Im not sure what else you could have done to win that game. Talent is a major issue in Minnesota.

    Haha like I said in my story, I couldn't be happier with the result (except a W of course). Yeah that Wildcat run really got me though, my DE was dragging a ball and chain and I made the mistake of trying to strip with my Safety.

    *sigh*

    Penn State 41
    Michigan 0

    The Penn State offense struggled at first but got going in the second quarter. The Nittany Lions scored 4 touchdowns in the second, including 3 passing touchdowns by starting QB Seth Nelson. WR #1 Tramon Clark was the recipient of 2 scores, 30 and 35 yards. TE #1 Jeff Richardson caught the other Nelson TD and he also scored on a pass from backup Eddie Darby. The big play of the game came in the second half, on the first play from scrimmage. Penn State brought in 3rd string speed QB Calvin Barber to get some game experience. The young QB split the defense on a shotgun triple option and ran untouched for the 79 yard TD. Illinois is the next game on the Penn State schedule, though some players are looking to the week 10 match against Ohio State.

    Player of the Game: Seth Nelson 13-19 255 yards 3 TD/0 INT

    Alabama - 55
    Tennessee - 21

    John Bowling made sure Tennessee would not pull an upset in this rivalry game. He threw for 355 yards and 3 TDs and ran for 98 yards and 1 TD. Joe McKinley had another good game by running for 162 yards on 11 carries and 3 TDs. Ryan McGee led the receivers with 7 catches for 138 yards. Joel Carter had 4 catches for 87 yards and 1 TD. The Crimson Tide gave up way too many yards on defense.

    #14 Georgia 48
    Florida 17

    The route was on early in this one. Georgia played fast through 3 quarters and had a 45-3 lead until the bomb squad came in and gave up 2 late scores to the 'turds. WR Jarret Moore led the way with 2 long scores of over 60 yards. The running game was also effective in this one. This is the first time this year that Georgia's players actually lived up to their ranking. DE Darryl Holley continues his strong season, registering another sack and several hurries.
