Cincinnati vs. #15 ArkansasEarly heartbreak and despair... The regular season started off with a bang for the Bearcats, with a chance to prove their worthiness of a top 25 spot with an upset of Arkansas. Arkansas came to play however, and what looked like a promising game going into the half turned into despair thanks to 2 interceptions by Munchie Legaux that spoiled the game for Cincinnati. It was very back-and-forth with no real seperation until the end of the game. Box Score:1st Quarter: ARK TD off of a 12 yard run from J. WilliamsCIN FG from 43 yards by Tony MilianoARK leads, 7-3 2nd Quarter: ARK FG from 43 yards by Z. HockerARK intercepted by D. Drane of CincinnatiCIN TD off of a 1 yard TD rush by Alfred MaloneARK TD off of a 8 yard run by K. WalkerCIN intercepted by J. Lake of ARKARK 43 yard FG by HockerCIN 27 yard FG by Tony MilianoARK leads, 20-13 3rd Quarter: ARK TD off of a 15 yard rush by J. WilliamsCIN TD, Munchie Legaux 71 yard pass to Andrew McClungARK leads, 27-20 4th Quarter: ARK 36 yard FG by HockerCIN intercepted by T. MichaelARK TD, 3 yard rush by M. LintonARK wins, 37-20 Arkansas' running game was featured throughout, as combined the Razorbacks ran for 215 yards and 4 TD's. Kody Walker led the way with 26 attempts for 153 yards and a TD. Brandon Mitchell threw for 184 yards and 1 INT as the Razorbacks scored on all of their possessions besides 2. The Bearcat's struggled a tad offensively, but defensively no player could get hands on Kody Walker as he ran all over them. Munchie Legaux threw for 249 yards, 1 TD, and 2 INT's as those INT's took Cincinnati out of contention in this one. Jameel Poteat ran for 61 yards on 14 attempts, and Alfred Malone, the hybrid running back/fullback ran for 30 yards and a TD off of only 6 runs. Dwight Jackson and Nate Temple, the All-Big East 1st team linebacking duo combined for 12 and 10 tackles respectively, with Jackson nabbing 2 sacks and Temple gaining 6 TFL's. Next week the Bearcats play Illinois in a game they must win to rebound on their journey to the top 25.
Syracuse Stomped in Home Opener 44 - 21Quarterback Benched Indefinitely The Orange opened up 2013 with a blowout loss to the Nittany Lions of Penn State. New starting QB Kasey Nichols had a very rough debut going 5/19 for 60 yards with 3 picks and Syracuse found themselves down 24 - 0 at the half. The Orange defense also got off to a bad start allowing 416 yards of total offense as Penn State HB Silas Redd ran for 125 yards and 2 TDs. Syracuse fans looked to be headed for a long season, but the offense finally came to life at the start of the 4th Quarter. Down 30 - 0 with just over 6 minutes remaining, the Orange coaching staff had seen enough and benched their sophomore QB in favor of QB Charley Loeb. The red shirt senior preceded to pick apart the Penn State defense for the remainder of the game going 12/16 for 230 yards with 3 TDs. Unfortunately, the Syracuse defense was unable to match the offense's performance and Penn State maintained their comfortable lead. Next week, Syracuse goes on the road to face the 22nd ranked Red Raiders of Texas Tech.
Crumbler81 If only you coulda pulled out the comeback...that would be truly worthy of an ESPN Instant Classic...
Temple Stuns Title Contender Irish, 18-16 Fans in South Bend could barely believe their eyes as the visiting and heavy underdog Temple Owls walked out with a stunning 18-16 win after a last-ditch hail mary was swatted down. The Temple D deserves the most credit holding a potent Irish offense to 300 yards and scoring a safety right before halftime. The Owl offense couldn't get the ball into the endzone until the 4th qtr but ate up the clock with productive drives. All told, Temple held the ball for 19:17 compared to only 8:43 for Notre Dame. A fantastic start to what was supposed to be a mediocure year for the Owls. No rest for Temple as they host another title contender in Donkalion and the Oregon Ducks in week 2.

Oklahoma opens the season with a blowout win. NORMAN- The Oklahoma Sooners open up the season with a convincing win over the #9 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide 42-14. The offensive scheme really seemed to fit our personnel. We believe our guys have bought into what we are trying to do and it showed on the field Saturday afternoon. With the departure of QB Landry Jones to the pros, Oklahoma's biggest area of focus was the QB position. Blake Bell has all the attributes to be good and possibly great, but he is lacking that key stat all great QB's need.....Experience! However, I guess no one told Blake this as he had himself a monster game completing 18 of his 32 attempts for 307yds and 3 tds. He also added 57yds on the ground on just 4 carries. After an injury plagued year for HB Roy Finch, he rebounded rather well, running for a game high 109yds and 3 tds. The defensive held The Tide to just 285yds of total offense and forced 4 turnovers on the day. NEXT UP, The #1 team in the land, SOUTHERN CAL TROJANS!!!!
A Big Win
Ducks win 38-22 against Stanford.
