TEXAS A&M PREVIEW
WEEK #1 RECAP
@ 19 - 38Huge statement win for first year head coach @B0BJR0526 and the Missouri Tigers. First year starter Tyler Gabbert shined with a 14-16, 241 yard and 3 TD performance. Converted QB to HB James Franklin showed his versatility racking up 104 yards and 2 TDs, including a 31 yard scamper early in the 4th quarter. @ 35 - 63A slow start for Coach @T2Express and the Cornhuskers turned into their favor in the 2nd half, as the defense accounted for 14 points (21 on the day) and 4 turnovers. RB Braylon Heard and QB Taylor Martinez looked fair in the opener, but the biggest concern for the Huskers is their last ranked pass defense who gave up 549 yards and 5 TDs to Hawaii's Kevin Spain @ 16 - 21@H22APWRD94 and the Baylor Bears are left scratching their heads after a near upset at home by a lower tiered Rice Owl squad. Baylor QB Bryce Petty looked solid to start the Post-Griffin Era, however his 2 INTs (one for a INT-6) may sound the alarm for conference play. RB Jarred Salubi led the Bears in rushing with a 107 yard performance on the day @ 21 - 44A nice warmup game for the Aggies and Coach @HackGolfer proved helpful as they rumbled the fellow Aggies of New Mexico state by a score of 44-21. After surrending an opening drive TD, the Texas A&M defense buckled down, forcing 2 fumbles and recording a sack on the day. QB Jameill Showers torched the NM State secondary in his first career start, amassing 302 yards and 2 TDs through the air.
FIRST BIG XII USER GAMEWEEK #2
MIZZOU VS. ALABAMA -
Good Luck B0B!! @B0BJR0526
WEEK #2 PREDICTIONSBOISE STATE: 21 BAYLOR: 31 - Boise State has lost alot of talent over the years and aren't quite the same BCS Busters they used to be like the days of Kellen Moore under center. The Broncos will hang in there for the 1st Half, however Baylor's fast paced spread offense will be too much to handle after the break.ALABAMA: 24 MISSOURI: 17 - A tough task for new head coach BobJr as he hosts the #1 team in the nation and the defending national champs on only the 2nd week of the season. Alabama has too much raw talent on offense for the Tigers, but Tyler Gabbert and Co. will make it an interesting one with a few scores late in the game.
BOSTON COLLEGE: 28 NEBRASKA: 35 - The GBR won't be able to claw their way out of 4th down holes on this one. RB Sterlin Phifer for BC is a threat for any team, boasting a 99 acceleration and 92 break tackle rating. Nebraska is traditionally a better run stopping defense however so this will keep them in the game long enough for the offense to find something that works. Whoever has the ball last wins the game by a score.
ARKANSAS: 42 TEXAS A&M: 45 - These two old Southwest Conference rivals have shown some fireworks in their recently revived yearly matchup. Don't expect anything differently this season, even with both teams being in the middle of a rebuilding year. There will be scoring quickly and often as neither team poses a defensive threat against the potent offenses. A&M sneaks in a W with a late FG.
WEEK #2 RECAP
@ 35 - 14A tough day for the Missouri Tigers as they stumble at home to the defending National Champions. Alabama jumped out to a 28-0 lead thanks to 4 straight Missouri turnovers and never looked back. Missouri was able to add a pair of late scores in the 3rd and 4th quarter, but never had a chance thanks to the stout defensive play of the Crimson Tide. QB Tyler Gabbert finishes with 245 yards passing and 2 TD, while adding 3 INTs to his resume'.
@ 28 - 35Nebraska jumps out to another 2-0 start thanks to the playmaking abilities of Taylor Martinez and Braylon Heard. After falling into a 14-0 rut, the Big Red battled back with 35 unanswered points to take a comfortable lead heading into the last 5 minutes of the game. Boston College battled back at the end to make the game close however ran out of time to seal a comeback. Braylon Heard finished the day with 138 yards on the ground and 3 TDs. @ 42 - 38An instant classic shootout that ended in heartbreak for the Baylor Bears. Both teams responded back and forth as the game progressed until Boise was able to punch one in within the final minute to secure their first victory of the season. The biggest story is Bear QB Bryce Petty looking uncomfortable in the pocket, only completing 11 passes for 204 yards and 3 INTs. The Bears will need to figure out how to defend the pass before starting Big XII play after giving up 310 yards passing and 4 TDs to Bronco QB Jay Johnson.
@ 10- 35The Aggies continue to struggle against SEC opponents, having lost their last 5 games in a row to a member of that conference. The Arkansas Razorbacks force 6 turnovers (5 INTs and a fumble) in route of the Aggies at home. QB Brandon Mitchell picked apart the Aggie secondary for 324 yards and 2 scores while RB Jatashun Beachum added two more on the ground. The Aggies only TD of the game came late in the 3rd qtr as 3rd string QB CJ Ross connected with WR Erik Harrison for a 62 yard bomb. Starting QB Jameill Showers and backup QB Spencer Smith were both knocked out of the game with minor injuries in the 1st half. Showers is expected to play next week against LSU.
WEEK #2: PLAYERS OF THE WEEKOFFENSEQB CLINT CHELF (OSU)
LAST GAME VS FCS WEST: WON (61-10)22-35, 381 YARDS, 5 TD, 11 CAR, 45YARDSDEFENSEDT DARIUS TERRY (NEBRASKA)
LAST GAME VS BOSTON COLLEGE: WON (35-28)5 TACKLES, 5 TFL, 2 SACKS, FORCED FUMBLE
WEEK #3 PREDICTIONSLAST WEEK (2-2)OVERALL (2-2)
TCU: 14 BAYLOR: 28 - After letting one slip away last week, Baylor will be on the prowl to make sure its not 2 in a row. This Rivalry game has gone to Baylor's favor the last 3 years and nothing should change this year. TCU's offense doesn't pack the punch it did from the year before. As long as Baylor minimizes their turnovers, they win this one with ease.
IOWA: 35 NEBRASKA: 24 - Nebraska survived a scare last week against an overrated Boston College squad. This week, they play host to an underrated Iowa squad that packs a mean punch in the backfield. The RB tandem of Marcus Coker and Quentin Stratton prove to be too much to handle while the Iowa LB's play lights out to Nebraska's run game.
LSU: 38 TEXAS A&M: 14 - The Aggie offense looked out of sync in Week #2 against an average Arkansas Razorback team. The going will get tougher this week as they face a much stronger defense in the LSU Tigers who have only given up 10 points on average in the last two games. Expect QB Zack Lee and RB Spencer Ware to post huge numbers in route of a struggling A&M squad.
MISSOURI: BYE WEEK
Good job Hack, glad to see the Big 12 is turning into the power house of old!
