Battle of the Brothers Utah St pulls off a gun slinging battle 38-35 over Utah This year's rivalry took place in Utah's Stadium. The first few drives looked awful for Utah State as leader of the team Chuckie Keeton would start off the game with an awful 0/4 with 2 ints. He admits to being a bit rattled in the first game and even mentioned not quite putting in the work in the offseason to really be ready come week 1. At the end of the day the stat line for him looked Heisman worthy for going 20/33 355 yards 1 TD 2 ints and tacked on 2 rushing TD's. One of those rushing TD's came in a crucial moment as they were staring the endzone on the final drive to take the lead with 2 minutes to go they ran a set up triple option and all the lanes opened up for Keeton to just walk on in. Coach said at the end that we don't run options too much, but we were aware that this play could throw them off and it did just so. Another big factor in Keetons success was the running back Joe Hill rushing for over 100 yards with 2 TD's. Utah State looked great with their backs up against the wall and they fought the whole game, they lacked huge amounts of defensive effort as they just gave up anything Utah wanted to do. Utah State has a long way to go on defense but if the offense can pull together somethings like they did today and QB Chuckie Keeton and sling it around and even tuck it in and go like he did today they will be looking alright for the weeks to come.
damn, 429 yards, impressive. I thought my 355 was nice but wow. Nice lol
the Air Raid is alive and well, now if we can tackle someone.
HOWLIN' WOLF PACK UPSET #20 UCLA TO START 2013 SEASON 31-24Don Jackson runs over a UCLA defender, scoring one of his 3 touchdowns Saturday Could you script a better way to start a new era with a new head coach? The Nevada Wolf Pack rolled into Pasadena Saturday and stole one from the Bruins in front of their home crowd. As shocking as this may have been to the college football world, none of the Nevada players or coaches were the least bit surprised. "I thought we had a great gameplan coming in." said new Head Coach Matt Gates, adding "Our players believed if we executed, limited mistakes and really put the pressure on them, we could find a way to win at the end of the day. That is exactly what we did. THAT'S FOOTBALL BABY." The Wolf Pack came in confident in their new running game, with Juco transfer Don Jackson taking over at running back and All-Mountain West QB Cody Fajardo. That confidence was backed by a consistent ground attack that, while rarely springing big runs, grinded it out on the ground for 169 yards and 3 touchdowns. Fajardo struggled at times in the passing game, mostly due to constant pressure from the UCLA defensive front and receivers who dropped fairly easy catches. Still, Fajardo finished with 158 yards and a touchdown and 0 interceptions, which was key to victory. Cody Fajardo, when asked by the media what he thought about the offensive performance after the game, said "We wanted to limit turnovers, be somewhat aggressive but at the same time take what the defense gave us. We executed when we had to, but we know we can get better. Our passing game needs to catch up with our running game. If we want to beat SMU next week, or Florida State the week after, we obviously have to get better. For some teams, this would be the season highlight. Not for us. We are still hungry, and as an offense we will work hard to improve." Defensively, the Wolf Pack looked greatly improved from last season at times, and looked worse than last year at times. UCLA did pretty much whatever they wanted on the ground, but the air attack was limited by some nice play by Nevada corners and safeties, and the pass rush was solid most of the game. They forced a turnover, and got a huge 4th down stop at their 10-yard line with under a minute left in the game to seal the victory. Nevada opens up their home schedule next week against Southern Methodist University.
CSU outlast Colorado in neutral field rivalry game Mistakes were a plenty on opening day as the Rams were able to sneak away with a solid week one game. There was missed tackles, dropped balls, and missed opportunities all game long for both sides. However, the Rams were able to get it under control in the 2nd half and outscore Buffalo's 14-3 to cruise to a Rocky Mountain Showdown win! Next for the Rams is a tough Tulsa team on the road, which should give Coach ChaoticUT a better understanding of where his team stands. POTG -- QB G. Grayson 16/22 for 284 + 2TDs - INT // 4 rushes for 21
Nice win ChaoticUT !
31 - 12 The Falcons opened the season under their new head coach Uagrad90 looking to continue their winning ways that they had experienced under Troy Calhoun. But one this opening day the Air Force Academy would have to wait for victory #1 as the 17th ranked Horned Frogs of TCU came to town and ran thru, around and past the Falcons. TCU set the stage early with an 95 yard kick off return for a TD after Air Force converted a FG to take an early 3-0 lead. The rest of the game the Falcons just could not match speed with the Horned Frogs and fell 31-12 in season opener.
Never Too Rainy For A Rout 14-42 On a rainy Saturday in San Diego, Cole Copeland and his Aztecs came out ready to play as they thoroughly dominated every aspect of this game. Adam Dingwell led the way with 4 total TD's. He split the touchdowns through the air and on the ground while not turning the ball over one time. His halfback faired pretty great himself with a 156 yard game on 17 attempts and 2 TD's while the rest of the stable of running backs combined for 98 yards on 14 attempts. The running backs carried much of the load in this game due to San Diego being so far ahead the whole game. All in all Coach Copeland was very pleased with his guys saying "It is only the first game of the season, but I see a lot of potential in this group of guys and I believe that they will surprise a bunch of people this year." We will see if the team lives up to the strong statement by their head ball coach as next week they have their hardest matchup of the season when they travel to Ohio State to face the Buckeyes.
Rough Start For The Rebels 20 @ 38 In 2012, the Golden Gophers took down UNLV in Las Vegas 38-35 in 3OT. The Rebels wanted some revenge. But when UNLV marched into Minneapolis this week to open their new era, things just looked worse. QB Nick Sherry struggled to keep the ball away from Minnesota defenders while the Gophers were clearly able to out-class UNLV in terms of talent. The real story of the game was turnovers. UNLV turned it over twice in the red zone early on which allowed Minnesota to build an early 17-3 lead and the Rebels just didn't have the talent to really close that gap. However, it did turn into a pretty exciting 4th quarter as the defensive game exploded. With just 23 combined points in the first 3 quarters, there were 35 scored in the 4th. Unfortunately for UNLV, this scoring explosion ended up allowing Minnesota to just extend their lead and finish them off 38-20.
Well, that sucked! especially that fourth quarter, the Trojans put the clamps down after the warriors took a lead after a Graham TD pass t the tune of 17 unanswered points in the 4th quarter including a pick 6. Horrible day for the offense starting qb as he threw 5ints, we look to imprve on that next week
Nothing on dyansty wire regarding this game. We had an opportunity to win this game up 3 with 4 minutes to go my impact yanks the facemask of Martinez to put them in scoring position to go up four. Then with less than a minute remaining we failed on 4th down in Cornhusker territory.
