    #1 USC Flexes their Muscle against #4 Oregon
    24-7
    Game Stats:
    1st Downs: Oregon 15 - 8 USC
    Rushing Yards: Oregon 139 - 112 USC
    Passing Yards: USC 152 - 97 Oregon
    Turnovers: USC 1 - 2 Oregon
    TOP: Oregon 16:07 - 11:53 USC
    The game was closer than the score showed but USC was by far they better team. The overall team speed slow the vaunted Duck offense down to a crawl. The Ducks just simply had to work too hard for everything they got!
    The Trojans had to work, but were able to bust a few Big Plays that helped their cause. Oregon held the elusive RB of USC to 11 carries for 47 yards but then he busted 1 carry for 63 yards and a score and that gave him 12 carries for 110 on they day! Andrew Cunningham hurt the Ducks as again on 2 screen plays, One of which went for 63 yards and another that went for 27 yards, both screen plays set up scores inside the Duck 5 yardline! Another big play for USC was when WR, George Farmer caught a pass for 47 yards while streaking across the field that set up another score.
    After the game we talked to Coach Hokie,
    " You know we just had to play perfect to win this game. USC is loaded for Bear! If anyone is to beat them they have to contain the Big play. Right now we just do not have the people to do that. Offensively, we tried everything, but they are just so fast! They recover too quickly for our misdirection offense to make them pay. There were many times we had their LB's moving one way and it would look as if we may bust one but they just recovered way too fast. We are young for the most part offensively. In order to win games like this...kids around the country have to see how exciting this offense can be and come be a DUCK!"
    We will recover from this, it's a long season...we have a good football team. We will be back!
    AND WHO KNOWS WE COULD FACE THOSE RASCALS AGAIN FOR THE PAC12 TITLE!"

    Penn St played a tough game there D gave my RB a hard time and forced us to pass to get scores. Our D played suspect but decent.

    Cardinal Beat Out Arizona in Tough Outing​
    The game started off with a defensive stalemate. the first points of the game came off a 42 yard pass from the Arizona QB Daxx Garman. Sanford still continued to stall only able to get a field goal on the next drive. Then things started to pick up, Stanford got a quick stop, and a 11 yard TD run by Wright. But Arizona answered quick off a 54 yard TD run. However, the 3rd quarter would be all Stanford with Kelsey Young, Remound Wright, Terrence Mcbride got TD's to take a late lead. But then there was a big mistake when Stanford got their 2nd Safety of the season against them. This wouldn't be enough to topple the Cardinal lead as was only able to score one more time before the end of the game.​
    Remound Wright had another impressive game having 22 Attempts for 176 yards and 3 TD's. The defense also played well, forcing 4 turnovers and accounting for 2 Sacks. "Yeah we took a while but we finally got in our rhythm and started playing our way. We made mistakes on both side of the ball but were mature enough to overcome them. Defensively we gave up a lot of yardage but luckily our boys know how to do what it takes to keep the points down low.​

    Tide Hang On Despite Second Half Heroics
    [​IMG]



    It was a tale of two halfs for Alabama as they took on Ole Miss. Despite not having their star RB Ben Hunter (he was out due to injury), the Tide got off to a hot start putting up 28 unanswered points in the first half. It looked early like the game would turn into a route, but someone forgot to mention to the Bama players that they still had a second half to play. The Tide were held to a season low 3 second half points as they struggled to do anything with the football. The Ole Miss offense seemed to find their grove and seemed unstoppable at times. In the end it just wasnt enough as the Tide defense held in the final seconds to secure the win.

    Up next is another tough test for the Tide when they're back at home to face Tennessee.

    Colorado Wins Big In LA

    Coming off of a tough loss at Stanford, the Buffs were looking to get back to their winning ways against UCLA. They were able to do just that with a great offensive performance and great run defense. Colorado got the ball 1st scored on their 1st possession so they led nearly the entire game. QB Monty Allen got knocked out with a concussion in the 2nd quarter but Stevie Dorman was able to come in and actually perform better. In the end, Colorado had a pretty easy time with UCLA scoring 31 points through 3 quarters and not allowing an offensive TD.​
    Player of the Game: Lee Kaplan has had a disappointing season but he showed up in this one. It was his first 100 yard performance of his career and was able to get 2 TDs.​
    Upcoming: Colorado stays on the road and travels to Arizona State. The Buffs have a very tough 2nd half of the season and this is a game they must win if they hope to make a bowl game.​
