BAYLOR IS NO MATCH FOR TEXAS
David Ash threw for 360 yards and 3 TD's as the Texas Longhorns continue to dominate B12 competition with a 42-21 win over out-manned Baylor. Throughout the entire game, the Baylor defense had no answer for the Texas offense. The offense was clicking on all cylinders with 513 total offensive yards. On defense, the longhorns would sack Baylor's QB's 7 times including 3 from All-American Malcolm Brown.
Up next for Texas: BYU
Tigers feast on Tigers, 52-14.
Auburn's Tre Mason would get things started with a 34 yard TD run. It would be all LSU until late in the 4th quarter when Auburn added a TD on mop up duty. The LSU Tigers would go on a 52-7 run. In a devastating fashion, through the air and ground they pounded the Auburn Tigers in front of their home crowd.
TE DeSean Smith, who has lost significant playing time to incoming true freshman Sean Thomas, had a break out day with 5 receptions for 120 yards and 2 TDs. Anthony Jennings has been maturing and settled down since the collapse in the Swamp weeks ago. He tossed for 206 yards and 2 TDs. Gerard Bryant had a very efficient day as he was pulled early. Bryant carried just 4 times but gained 91 touchdowns and scored twice.
The LSU defense was nasty recording 5 sacks and a pick six by SS Corey Thompson.
Miami Pitches A Shutout
Win on the Road 52-0
Miami comes in on their last road game and pitch a shutout and put up 50+, this was a balanced attack but more weighted towards rushing. A total of 555 yards was recorded for Miami and this could have been a lot worse, as Duke Johnson saw no playing time in the 2nd half and all other starters were benched after the first drive of the 2nd half that resulted in a TD and made the coaches mind up that it was a comfortable lead to sit on. The big surprise in the game was 3rd string running back Cornelious Elder and his 13 carries 146 yards with a big 47 yard TD. He is a bigger stronger version of Duke Johnson, he does not quite have the speed of Duke but is just a redshirt Freshman and could provide to be a great back in the future.
In the world of Miami D, they are still playing solid. Lately it was a bend don't break D. This week was a don't really bend at all. There was a couple drive that they produced a couple good plays but they were either followed by an INT or the big fumble recover for a TD. The other long drive they were working on finished with a missed FG.
It's tough to tell the future, but if I was a betting man I'd say the sky is clear for Miami. They have Pittsburgh in Miami and then get to prepare for the ACC Title game and try to defend not only their #1 position but also defend last years ACC Championship. If Miami could win the ACC this year does it make them the targeted team in the ACC? Maybe the whole league?
WVU continues to fight for a bowl bid
This was a strong game for WVU. ISU would start the scoring on a 11 yard TD run by Nealy. WVU would then respond with 3 consective TDs two of them on runs by Smith and the other TD on a pass to Cambell. ISU would respond back with a 1 yard sneak by Richardson but they would not have enough to beat WVU.
