    Louisville 35
    Tennessee 33

    This game was a shootout early as Tennessee took a quick 10-0 lead 3 minutes into the game, but Louisville answered with a 55-yard pass from Bridgewater to Davis. Tennessee then added 2 FG's to go up 16-7 early in the 2nd and Louisville was having a tough time stopping their run game. UL was able to pound 1 more in the from the goal line late in the half to bring it to a 23-21 Tennessee halftime lead. On UL's 11st drive of the 3rd, backup QB Will Stein hit Eli Rogers on a 31-yard deep ball. Rogers and Stein both had good games as Stein spelled Bridgewater twice in this game and played even better than Bridgewater. A Louisville FG with 3:00 left in the game gave them a 32-26 lead but Tennessee came roaring back and scored quickly, but it was enough time for Louisville to get into FG range and hit a FGwith 0:09 left to clinch the tough road win.

    Teddy Bridgewater (QB)- 15-31 for 274 yards, TD, INT
    Will Stein (QB)- 2-2 for 60 yards, TD
    Dominique Brown (HB)- 11 carries for 32 yards, TD
    Jeremy Wright (HB)- 4 carries for 28 yards, TD
    Eli Rogers (WR)- 6 receptions for 136 yards, TD
    Jarrett Davis (WR)- 55-yard TD reception
    Preston Brown (LB)- 12 tackles, 5 TFL
    Adrian Bushell (CB)- 7 tackles, TFL, 2 INT

    Ball State 17

    Ball State gave USF everything they wanted and more. Ball State scored first with a 30 yard FG. USF bounced right back with a 75 yard TD, with at least 50 YAC to snatch the lead away. On the next Ball State drive, they tried a screen to the RB that was intercepted by big old DE Hill and returned for a TD to go up 14-3. The second quarter was all Ball State as they had no trouble at all scoring at will and shutting down the USF offense. Many times it looked like they BSU defense knew exactly what was being called. Ball State scored 14 points in the 2nd, all on the legs of RB Edwards. USF was able to get into the redzone, but was stopped on 2nd and 3rd down and goal at the 1 (again by psychic D-Coordinators) and USF took the lead with a FG.

    In the 2nd half, both teams played great defense, not letting either get on the board until USF did with no time left in the 3rd - a Daniels pass to Dunkley to pull ahead 24-17. USF put the game out of reach with a 30 yard FG in the 4th and put the final nail in with a B.J. Daniels TD run following a turnover on 4th down deep in BSU territory.

    B.J. Daniels - 10-16 191 yards 2TDs, 13 carries - 23 yards

    Navy 30
    ECU 28

    After their atrocious display against ND the Navy Midshipmen decided to switch from their traditional option offense and decided to lean to a more balanced attack. They took on ECU in Annapolis and the switch of offensive scheme helped them greatly. Navy's defense gave up an early TD but they played lights out D for pretty much the rest of the first half. Navy's offense had a great day through the Air as Tre Miller threw for 276 yards 2 TD's and 2 INT's. Navy also rushed the ball well thanks to the legs of Gee Gee Greene. He ran the ball 17 times for 106 yards. But the real hero of this game was Pablo Beltran, when the offense failed to put any points on the board his strong leg took the load off of the Midshipmen. Beltran hit the GW field goal while Navy's offense struggled the whole second half.

    San Diego St. Aztecs-28
    UCF Knights-17
    In the first conference battle in the new Big East, the two newest members squared off in San Diego. The Aztecs used this opprotunity to serve notice that their defense would be a force as they dominated the Knights 28-17. SDSU held UCF quarterback B. Bortles to 9-29 passing for only 93 yards and forced him to turn the ball over four times. Like the previous week, the Aztec defense allowed an early field goal. Once again, after this early field goal, the Aztecs would not let their opponent get near the end zone until the game was already decided.
    On offense, Aztec quarterback Ryan Katz had a much more pedestrian game than the week before. However, he still made several key throws when they were needed. Katz finished with two touchdown passes and a touchdown run, but he also threw two interceptions on poorly thrown balls. USC transfer Brice Butler introduced himself to the Aztec home crowd with a 50 yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. The biggest play of the game came on a controversial screen pass by UCF that was ruled a fumble. The Aztecs DT S. Meredith scooped the ball and scored giving SDSU a commanding 21-3 lead. Replays seem to show the quarterback's arm moving forward, but the play was not reviewed by officials. The win came at a cost for the Aztecs as they lost star HB Walter Kazee for at least 6 weeks with broken ribs. The win moves the Aztecs to 2-0 as they travel to Tempe to face Arizona St. next week. UCF falls to 0-1 after this opening week loss for them. They return home to face Fresno St. next week.
    Offensive Player of the Game
    SDSU WR Brice Butler: 3 receptions/ 78 yards/ 1 TD
    Defensive Player of the Game
    SDSU DT S. Meredith: 3 tackles/ 2 tackles for loss/ 1.5 sacks/ 1 fumble recovery/ 1 TD

    BPHusker I have to put my commish hat on for a sec... This goes for everyone too.

    No reason to score that touchdown with no time left in the half. I know it is nit picky, but you guys know I can be a stickler for this stuff. If your up ten and win by ten there is no shame in that, just because it is a lowly team (Ball State in this case) doesn't mean you have to tack on one more touchdown.

    BP, you know better I know- but maybe we just needed a quick refresher here.

    Air Force got off to a really quick start thanks to a couple turnovers. LB Crooks made a great interception on Colorado's first play of the game, taking it to the house for 6. The Falcon defense would amp up and get a stop the next possession, and after some nice plays and a promising looking drive, AF had to settle for a field goal making it 10-0. The Buffalo's again looked sharp, as a HB swing pass hit the Colorado tail back in the back of his shoulder pads, and the pass was ruled a fumble which was recovered by LB Means. On the first play of the next drive, Air Force would score on a catch and run by RB XX.

    Colorado came out sharper on their net drive, moving the ball to around midfield, however, backup safety Lindsay would snatch a pass and take it back for 6. The rest of the game was all Air Force.... and then it froze after the first quarter- was up 24-0...

    Well in the official game, Air Force knocks of Colorado 30-7. The Buffs scored their lone touchdown on the Air Force young guns that got subbed in for the fourth quarter. CU QB Nick Hirschman went an astonishingly bad 7-23 for 109 yards and 3 interceptions, with the majorit of the yards coming against the aforementioned backups. Overall, the only word to describe the Buffs 102 yard totaling, 1-7 3rd down converting, 6 turnovers performance is just plain horrid.

    Credit to the Falcons though, they came out with their new Wish/Flex/Wingbone offense and really took it to the Buffs, racking up 262 total yards which proved to be plenty. At this rate Colorado should have a horrid year, and Air Force will have their say in the conference race.

    Write ups would be better, but its late and having to restart took the wind out of my sails.

    Get the eff out of my state. There's one good prospect in CT, so you better leave him alone. The negative recruiting has begun.

    Houston 30
    UCLA 26

    In a very sloppy game by the Houston offense, the Cougars pull out the close win 30-26 after trailing for most of the game. The Cougars had 7 turnovers in this one, 4 interceptions, and 3 fumbles, 2 of which that happened inside the 10 yard line. All 4 interceptions came close to the red zone as well. David Piland coming back from injury had a lackluster performance throwing 4 interceptions on the day, but did have over 400 yards passing and 4 touchdowns. With Pilland back, Charles Sims was a much smaller part of the offense only gaining 20 yards on the day. The fast pace, no huddle offense of UCLA had their QB throw the ball 56 times on the day, and didn't have one turnover. UCLA had a chance to win this one late in the game but couldn't convert on a 4th down attempt. Houston will take on UCONN next week in their Big East opener.



    * This is my least favorite NCAA that I can remember. Hopefully it just needs time to grow on me, but the game is too broken for me to really enjoy right now.

    Out of curiosity, what parts are too broken for you to enjoy right now? I'm not disagreeing with you...just wondering.

    Too many times I'll be in position to make a pick, beating the wr to the spot, and I won't get an animation, while the WR will get a spec catch animation. A lot of times in man coverage, it seems that the dbs/lbs are physic and know where my wr's are going. Just seems like man is a little overpowering this year. Kind of seems like linemen are overpowering this year a lot of the time. I could go on and on, but it's mainly on the defensive side of the ball when I have my guys in position to make the plays, and I either get no animation on the play, or the WR gets the spec catch animation.

    Maybe it will even out some, my guys had 7 picks against NC State, so hopefully, there will be some balance.

    Make sure you have auto-straffe turned off. For whatever reason players don't react well when you user them with it on. I was unable to even make my players perform the swat animation with auto-staffe on.

    This helps a ton Philstyle3005

    I agree with Aaron too- I was picking Colorado off left and right- pass commit helps a ton too Phil- makes your CPU db's actually play the ball an make catches.

    I'll try the auto strafe thing out. I'm mainly talking about what would happen in our game we played. The deep balls thrown, I get there first with my db, strafe up and don't get an animation. I don't mind if it's a jump ball and I lose it, but I just want an animation. Hopefully it's the auto strafe thing, if it's on by default, I left it on because I haven't messed with any settings.

    When I am user defending I have started to just tap y repeatedly until I get some animation. Now wether or not that helps idk, possibly worth a look.

    Kasper I'm now officially on vacation until Sunday night. I'll still be poking my head in around the site, and I'll try to do my recruiting online. I'm sure Arizona St. will kill me in a simmed game. I'm just praying I don't have any injuries.

    Here's my summary: the Huskies had a great bye week and did some recruiting and scouting.

    Is that sufficient for a bye week summary? I think all that corn has messed with your head.
