    S4 Week 5

    UCLA holds of California in a close one. The Bruins had 450 yds of offense but couldnt turn that into points and The Golden Bears almost made them pay for it. UCLA was lead by HB Jon Franklin who had 186 yds rushing and 2 TD's.

    After no scoring in the first quarter UCLA jumped out to a 14-0 lead and kind of put it in cruise control as they moved the ball up and down the field but a missed FG was there only real scoring opportunity. Cal would answer before the half ended to make the score 14-7. Only scoring of the 3rd quarter was a Cal FG to cut the lead to 14-10. In the 4th Franklin would bust a 65 yd TD to make the score 21-10 but Cal would comeback and add a TD and 2 pt conversion, but would not recover the onside kick and UCLA dodges a bullet.

    UCLA 4-0 on the year

    Temple Wins First Game Under New Coach

    Central Michigan- Wow. The Temple Owls' came out with a pep in their step under new Coach JerzeyReign. The Owls entered the game 1-3 with their only win over a FCS school.

    "I told 'em to throw the record out the window. The season officially starts now." Coach Jerzey said afterwards.

    Coach Jerzey, known as a defensive minded coach who loves running the ball, got everything plus more. The Owls would race out to 14-0 first quarter league behind the new leader's philosiphy.

    On the first play of the game the Owls' M.Jones intercepted a CMU pass and returned it 46 yards for the opening score. The Owls defense would come up again on the next drive again as M.Jones would pick off his second pass of the quarter. The Owls' offense, clearly motivated by the defense, marched down the field as J. Haynes punched it in from 6 yards out to a 14-0 first quarter halftime lead. Haynes would rush for 118 yards on 18 carries including 2 touchdowns. A.Winston would also score 2 touchdowns on the ground as he gained 99 yards. As a team Temple would gain 279 yards on the ground.

    CMU finally got things going as they scored a late first quarter touchdown to cut the score to 14-7 and making Temple fans have an all too familiar look on their faces. That look would be the look of failure. All too many times the team will play well in spurts but never for a full game. But today was different. Today the "Reign" made a difference.

    Temple put the game away by halftime. Yes, you read that right. Temple closed this one out early. The Owls would score 21 points in the second quarter behind stout defense and strong running game to take a 35-7 halftime lead. But the play of the quarter/game happened with only 1 second left in the half. On the play X.Johnson found V.Carraway for a 31 yard touchdown pass on a beautiful throw.

    The Temple starters would have one more drive during the game and again reached paydirt in the middle of the 3rd quarter to push them out the game and the lead to 42-7.

    The Temple defense played great all game, including the backups, as they held CMU to that lone touchdown and only 136 yards of total offense. The backup offense even looked good as they eventually reached the endzone as well. 3rd string HB S.Kent ran in from 4 yards out to close out the scoring late in the fourth.

    Final Score in this one, 49-7. Temple improves to 2-3 and don't look now but could make a run in the MAC if they continue to play like they played Saturday.

    Bowling Green defeats Idaho at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow. Bowling Green opened the 2nd half with a KO return for a TD giving them their first lead of the game... 10-6. That play seemed to knock Idaho out of synch and they never recovered. Final score 24-16. Props to BG's pass rush which was the difference in this game. Vandals QB Justin Terry threw 3 INTs and was sacked 5 or 6 times. BG's man to man coverage was brilliant and created the extra few seconds the DE's needed to get to QB Terry.

    It was an interesting game to be a part of from Idaho's standpoint simply because they hadn't faced that kind of coverage before. Coach milmont didn't make the proper adjustments in time and before he knew it... the lead slipped away and the game was suddenly late 4th qtr.

    Misery in San Diego

    A surprise start for the backup quarterback after news comes that the Aztec starter, Jake Bernards, will be sidelined for 10 weeks, ending his junior year. With the lefty, Colton Morrison, at the helm San Diego struggled to find a tempo and the receivers struggled to adjust.

    The Tecs played strong, holding the Wolf Pack to one offensive touchdown all game, on a deep 46 yard pass from Lantrip to Utley. Unfortunately for SD, the pack made big plays on turnovers.

    After holding Nevada to another three and out, the ensuing punt return resulted in a fumble after first contact that was returned for a touchdown - putting Nevada ahead 14-10.

    San Diego persevered and had the ball in Nevada territory with the game tied at 17-17 with 3 minutes left to play. Then a critical fumble by Adam Henry on a draw play was returned 63 yds for the major giving Nevada a 24-17 lead.

    Trying to suppress a comeback the Wolf Pack seemed energized and ballhawking, unlike the Tec DB's who dropped numerous interception opportunities, the Wolf Pack then rattled off two straight interception returns for touchdowns in the last 2 minutes of the game. The final score was 38-17, a major shift from a level score with 3 minutes left and the Aztecs driving.

    A crushing defeat that infuriated coach Bear, who felt there were many bright spots, but too many big plays by the Pack. Including an amazing hurdle move right on the goal line when the Aztecs had a sure safety, penning up (they thought) the Nevada HB in the end zone.

    As a result of the loss of Bernards and the poor performance of the lefty, coach Bear has taken the red shirt off Freshman QB Donny Robinson. The season is heading down the tubes fast, on hand to witness the melt down were four key recruiting targets. The upside of a victory would have been huge, however, these recruits must not have been impressed.

    Coach Bear has vowed to refocus and try to turn the season around.
