    Buckeyes 4th quarter effort caps comeback against Irish
    [​IMG]21 [​IMG]24
    Ohio State came into the season with a lot of question marks on the offensive side of the ball. A new group of backs, the receiving corp all fresh faces and most importantly no more Braxton Miller. Ohio State named Freshman Joe Cox the starter in Columbus and he would show early if he's ready to play at a high level.
    After each offense traded their first possessions , Cox found TE Matt McCoy for an 8 yard TD to give the Buckeyes the lead as the 1st quarter expired. After an Irish turnover, Ohio State settled for a field goal to go up 10-0. Notre Dame then put together a solid drive that was capped off by an 8 yard TD to TE Marcus Fitzpatrick. The Irish than halted a State attempt at points late in the half to get the ball back with approx 45 seconds left. Right before half Golson found his other TE Troy Niklas 13 yards out as the Irish went up 14-10 at half.
    The third quarter saw the defenses matching wits as the only points scored was off a crazy play as Golson shed off 2 sack attempts by Buckeye rushers and he hit WR Devonte Neal for a 70 yard touchdown.
    Down 21-10 in the 4th, Freshman QB Joe Cox stayed poised and made some nice throws leading the State offense down the field where he eventually connected with WR Justin Smith for a 16 yard touchdown. The Irish pushed the ball past mid field but on 4th down, out of field goal range they elected to go for it and the Buckeye defense wrapped up Golson in the back field and gave the Buckeyes the chance they needed. Ohio State got into field goal range and Cox took a shot and hit Justin Smith for the second time for a 30 yard TD and with 2:21 left, State went up 24-21. Notre Dame started from the 20 and picked up a first down but than after a sack, Golson and the Irish were left to pick up a 4th and 31. Ohio State rushed 3 giving Golson time in the pocket, unbelievably Golson hit his man deep down the middle and picked up the first down. The 'Shoe was dead silent as the Irish moved into field goal range, State's defense putting it all out to prevent the TD and accept OT. Golson took a shot at the end zone looking for his TE who was covered well by OLB Chad Dennis. He managed to pick off the attempt, sealing the deal for the Buckeyes.

    FSU 63-7

    Noles Start Season Off Strong

    CB Ronald Darby started off his season with 2 interceptions today, as he helped lead a Seminole defense with several new faces. The first team defense did a great job all day not allowing a score. The offense got off to somewhat of a slow start as we are breaking-in the new QB Jacob Coker. Arguably the fastest player in college football, WR/PR/KR Marvin Bracy broke open the game with a punt-return TD in the 2nd quarter and a kickoff return TD to start the second half. He also added 3 catches for 138 yards and 1 TD on the day, and received the game-ball for his break-out performance.

    Next week we welcome the Michigan St. Spartans to Tallahassee, for what should be an excellent non-conference match-up. SEC/BIG 10 bragging rights will be on the line as Sparty looks to strike the upset.

    Once again early turnovers forced the vols to play catch up as the aggies used three turnovers to build a 21-10 halftime lead. The only third qtr. points was a 3 yard td run from the vols backup hb Jones. 21-17 thru three. On the first play of the fourth the aggies hit on a 16 yard td pass building there lead backup to 11 at 28-17. Taking advantage of the aggies defense playing conservative the vols scored twice in five minutes to build a 31-28 lead with 29 seconds left. a&m qb Manziel used three qb runs to get the aggies within field goal range and making a 46 yard kick sending the game into overtime. Tennessees defense stepped up in overtime stopping the aggie offense on three straight plays from inside the two forcing a 20 yard field goal. Tenneess would win the game on Petermans third strike of the game from the 11 on third and goal to wr Croom. 37-34 vols in overtime.

    Peterman 26 of 35 318 yards 3 tds 2 pick
    Smith 17 rushes 150 yards 1 td
    Downs 7 catches 60 yards
    Croom 4 catches 52 yards 2 td
    The vols junior qb was able to keep the aggie defense off balance by completing passes to nine different recievers.

    Just as a heads up, please go back and do a write-up for any user games you've won. A small blurb for CPU games is fine, but league and site requirements are for the winner of a user game to give the rest of us the breakdown and details of the game. Thanks.

    ND - 31
    UT - 24

    The last three games played in South Bend have been in a down pour. Surprisingly the teams didn't really lay the ball on the field that much other than a few INT's it was a pretty clean game. ND took the opening KO and drove the length of the field with a time consuming drive eating almost 3 minutes off the clock. The drive was capped off by a 36 yard catch by Daniels. On the pursuing drive, the ND D dropped back in a zone and picked off UT's Peterman. ND had a chance early to put UT in a hole but couldn't capitalize and turned the ball over themselves on a Golson force over the middle. UT was able to take the next possession and close out the quarter on a 15 yard scamper off the right side with HB Smith.

    Second quarter was somewhat uneventful with a few punts and a couple of FG's. ND did take a 10pt lead but left too much time and UT methodically moved down the field to hit a FG with one second left in the half to pull within 7. This was huge for their momentum because they were also receiving the second half KO.

    Talk about a snoozer of a quarter. That would describe the 3rd. There were a few plays here and there but overall no points were put on the board as the D's were bending but not breaking.

    The fireworks were saved for the 4th. 28 points were scored in the quarter. UT tied the game just as the quarter started as Peterman hit his TE King for an 11 yard TD. ND answered on the next drive on a 3rd and 1 as they anticipated the blitz and hit a quick slant to Neal and 55 yards later they were back up by 7. The play of the game came on the next drive as UT was moving back down the field to tie it up with just under 2 minutes. ND FS Baratti stepped in front the WR and took an INT 69 yards the other way to what felt like the icing on the cake. However down by two scores and under 2 minutes UT still didn't pannick. They marched down the field on about 4 plays and Smith ran in from 8 yards out to bring them back to within 7 and still over a minute to play. UT tried the onside kick but wasn't able to get it back. ND struggled to get the 1st down it need but connected on a 3rd and 12 to put the game away as UT was then out of timeouts.

    From earlier this year

    (AP) Athens - The defending national champs faced a stout challenge from the visiting Florida State Seminoles this past Saturday. However, the Georgia Bulldogs were up for the challenge with a hard fought 28-16 victory. The biggest play of the game was a 35 yard pick 6 that made the score 28-10 with 6 minutes left in the 4th quarter. The star of the game overall was yet again dual threat SR QB Christian Lemay who was 19-27, 332 yards 2 TDs and no turnovers.

    The Bulldogs held a 392-284 yard total offense advantage and a 20-10 advantage in first downs. The win extended the Bulldog winning streak to 13 games. Next week the Bulldogs host the Vanderbilt Commodores.

    (AP) Boulder - The Georgia Bulldogs started out in a 7-0 hole before dismantling the Colorado Buffalos 62-16. The Bulldogs rolled up 574 yards and held the Buffalos to 184 yards. The Bulldogs were held in check on the ground so they shifted their attack to the air and passed for 470 yards. The bulk of the damage in the air was from SR QB Christian Lemay, 14-17 for 349 yards (4 TDs). JR speedster WR Lorenzo Kendrick was the biggest threat with 3 catches for 121 yds (1 TD) including a spectacular 81 yard TD. JR OLB Jordan Jenkins was the star on defense with 2 sacks.

    Next week the #1 Bulldogs are on a bye.

    31 pt 2nd quarter by the Tigers help then pull-off the upset over the Seminoles

    - "You can't win on the road when you give up 400 yards of offense and loss the turnover battle. The pick six right before the half turned out to be the difference and the 2 lost fumbles are inexcusable. I do like the way we fought back in the second half but it just wasn't enough." - Coach Atkinson

    [​IMG]

    Seminoles continue to reel on long roadtrip, drop another to the Aggies

    - "The big plays absolutely killed our defense. All 4 Aggies TD's were over 46 yards, 2 over 70 yards in the second half. Johnny Football out-rushed our offense by himself.....We will likely have a new starting QB next week. Coker missed a lot of big throws when we needed them and Jameis Winston has proven himself to be a big time player in the passing and rushing game."

    One more road game next week against the Mississippi State Bulldogs before we return home to the friendly confines of Doak Campbell Stadium.

    ND - 45
    IN - 17

    A 28 point outburst in the 2nd quarter put this game away. Golson was named player of the game after going 10-11 for 252 yards and 4 Td's. He also ran for 57 yards and a TD. The Hoosiers didn't have much going for them on the ground. However, after getting down by three scores they were able to start moving the ball through the air and racked up 350 yards of passing.

    The Irish were able to play multiple RB's and all three QB's in this game to get them some road experience. The other standout on the day was WR Chris Brown (not the singer) who only had 3 catches but all went for TD's.

    Next up for the Fighting Irish is Wisconsin which they hope will be a huge recruiting weekend for them.

    Compiled game recaps for Michigan:

    Week 2:
    Coach Parrothead went back to Gainesville to take on his old team in the Swamp. This one would be an offensive showcase with the Wolverines coming out on top, 44-36. Michigan controlled the ball in the 4th quarter, which made the difference. The Wolverines sealed it with 1:55 left on the clock with a Todd Miller 4 yard TD reception. QB Kendall Allen would throw for 500 yards and 4 TDs.

    Week 3:
    A visit to Hawaii seemed like it could be a vacation to most, but was all business in this one. UM opened up the scoring with 17 straight points and cruised on for the victory, 34-10. Allen threw for 329 yards and 3 TDs.

    Week 4:
    Big 10 play opened up for Michigan with a visit from the Wisconsin Badgers. After falling behind 7-3 at the end of the first, Michigan came up with a couple of big plays in the second. WR Amara Darboh was able to snag a 59 yard TD with 3:48 left Michigan got the ball back on their own 30 with under 15 seconds remaining. Allen threw up a prayer and Darboh came down with it, finishing the play to complete a 70 yard TD. Michigan took control in the second half behind a balanced rushing attack (thanks to multiple injuries) and won 45-28.

    Week 5:
    Michigan traveled down to Lubbock to take on Texas Tech in an out of conference game. Michigan continued the tradition of starting slowly by giving up 14 quick points to the Red Raiders, and entered the second quarter down 14-0. The game turned at that point as Michigan scored 28 in the 2nd, and 38 unanswered. The Wolverines would win this one 45-20. Michigan forced 3 turnovers in this one, and each led to a TD.

    Week 6:
    Michigan took the show on the road to Champaign and tried to start off slowly again. This time, instead of waiting for the 2nd quarter to get going, Michigan started in the middle of the first. Despite throwing an interception on the first possession, Allen came back and settled into a groove. Allen would finish the day torching the Illini secondary for 482 yards. The running game would total 179 rushing yards (again, by committee thanks to multiple injuries), and Michigan would walk away with a 62-30 victory.

    Week 7 brings a much needed bye, with a visit from Nebraska in week 8.
