    Arizona Nips UNC
    Wildcats win 62-52

    [​IMG]

    Tucson, AZ- Arizona and UNC tussled on the football field Saturday, and a basketball game broke out. Arizona's high powered offense took down the UNC Tar Heels high powered offense 62-52 behind 502 yards and 4 TD's from RS Freshman Javelle Allen.

    Allen started off slowly with 3 interceptions in his first 10 passes, but he righted himself and led the Wildcats to victory. The Wildcats were losing 28-14 after the 1st quarter, and 35-24 after 2. But they outscored the Tar Heels 38-17 in the second half to secure a 10 point win.

    Javelle Allen wasn't the only freshman to light up UNC, Trey Griffey caught 6 balls for 145 yards and a 61 yard TD. But Allen also hit Austin Hill for 7 passes and 155 yards and a TD, and Richards caught 5 passes for 87 yards before going down in the 3rd with an abdominal strain.

    Allen wasn't the only player with an excellent performance Jourdon Grandon returned 6 kicks for 196 yards including and NCAA record 98 yard TD in the first. He added 55 yards on 3 punt returns including a 40 yarder that was a shoelace away from being an 80 yard TD. (stats are screwed up says he had 6 KR for 1 yard and 196 TD's)

    The game wasn't salted away until CB Richardson picked of Bryn Renner on a Hail Mary on 4th and long late in the 4th. Arizona kneeled out the clock and escaped with a win.

    Players of the Game
    Javelle Allen 30-37 for 502 yards 4 TD's and 3 Int
    Jourdon Grandon 6 KR for 196 yards and 1 98 yard TD
    Austin Hil 7 catches 155 yards and 1 TD.

    The Bears Come Out on Fire to Win Big
    Dallas, TX - The Cal Golden Bears start the game on a 38 point run in the first half to put this one away early against the Illini who had a tough time getting things going until late in the game. The new option offense attack was forced to a three and out on the first posession of the game, but once the coaching staff figured out the Illinios strategy to defending the option, there was no looking back, as they ripped off homerun hit after homerun hit. This game was characterized by the 56 yard TD run by A-Back B. Bigelow on the very first play of the second drive, to go up 7-0. The Cal defense stood tall as well, intercepting QB Nathan Scheelhaase 6 times, and holding Illinois to only 6 yards rushing the entire game, counting the 4 sacks they added on the day. The Cal rushing attack was spearheaded by their B Back Lucas Gingold, whose 240 lbs of pure freight train averaged over 5 yards per carry, totaling 95 yards. Then they struck on the edge with A Back Brendan Bigelow's speed with 10 carries for 150 yards. Cal went up early and did not pass much, only throwing the ball 12 times, but Bryce Treggs was able to make the Illini pay with his speed when they overcommited to the run, averaging 41 yards per catch.

    The bright spots for the Illini offense were dual threat HB Donovan Young, who was tough to cover when he lined up in the slot, and Jeremy Whitlow, who had a total of 72 yards recieving. Although QB Scheelhaase had a rough day, he did throw for almost 300 yards, and it could have been much more had his recievers helped him out more, with their 7 drops.

    GG @Balla

    POG: Brendan Bigelow 10 ATT 150 YDS, 2 TD

    The Hoosiers come away with a big win over #20 UCLA, 34-28. The Hoosiers were showing off a new option attack inspired by the greats, Paul Johnson and Jeff Monken. The Hoosiers started off the game well as the Bruins tried to force a pass and it was intercepted on the first play of the game. The Hoosiers would easily capitalize on a touchdown pass to Kofi Hughes. The Hoosiers were up 7-0. The Bruins came back and answered with a drive of their own to tie the game up thanks to a Jordan James touchdown run. This game went back and forward as both teams racked up 300+ total yards. The Hoosiers only rushed for 186 yards on 44 attempts which is not good for this type of offense. The Hoosiers will be hitting the practice fields hard to try and get better results for next week as they face Utah.

    Wildcats Win On The Road!
    [​IMG]

    Coach Brown and the Wildcats come out on top in Seattle! The Huskies came out firing, with a Bishop Sankey 5 yard TD in the first two minutes of play setting the tone for what was thought to be an easy game for the Huskies. Near the end of the 1st quarter Venric Mark lit up the score board with a rushing TD of his own, from there the Wildcats didnt stop! Kain Colter, was nothing short of what was expected from the senior. Colter compeleted 17/19 passes for 262 yards and 1 TD through the air showing he is more than just legs on the gridiron. Venric Mark showed up and showed out for the Wildcats picking up 97 yards of the ground and 3 TD's, while freshman sensation Perkins added a TD on the ground of his own. Leading the receiving core was "superback" Dan Vitale, snagging 4 receptions for 55 yards. The defense was lead by D.Proby who had 9 tackles keeping the Huskies out of the endzone enough for the Wildcats to add another notch to their belt.

    Northwestern will face UCLA next week in southern California. UCLA has depth and will not let the Wildcats walk away without a fight! Northwestern, 1-0 will now hit the practice field this week with one thing in mind, BEAT THE BRUINS.

    GO CATS!

    Arizona Beats Purdue 38-10
    Wildcats Improve to 2-0
    Tucson, AZ- Coach Trey's inagural season as Wildcats head coach has gotten off to a good start, with 2 straight wins. The Wildcats took down the visiting Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday.

    Javelle Allen showed his first start was no fluke as he went 19-25 for 254 yards and 1 TD, he added a TD on the ground. Allen split his passes between Garic Wharton, Richards, and Griffey as 16 of his 19 completions went to those 3 WR. Richards caught the lone TD. Ka'Deem Carey carried 17 times for 75 yards and 1 TD to lead the ground attack.


    Arizona's defense was led by Redmon who tallied 5 tackles and an interception. The Wildcats also recorded 5 sacks on the day. And set an unbreakable NCAA record for longest interception return for TD by returning a ball 121 yards for a TD. (stupid glitch, intercepted in the back of the endzone, tapped a foot down and went out of bounds, and it gave me a TD. I gave it back on Purdue's next snap.)

    Purdue was led by Henry who went 16-22 for 275 yards, 1 TD and 2 interceptions. Holmes caught 5 balls for 76 yards and McCarthy caught 2 balls for 91 yards and a TD.

    Player of the Game:
    Javelle Allen: 19-25, 254 yards 1 TD
    Redmon: 5 tackles and 1 Interception


    Good game @qclassic 22 still can't believe that interception glitch happened. We've heard it way more often than we should this year but EA should notice things like that.

    CAL-38 FCS W-3

    The story of this game was Cal's FBS talent, speed, and strength being too much to handle for the FCS team. Cal's offense simply had too much talent for FCS to handle, and the Defense was getting to the QB before he could find an open WR. 259 rushing yards tops the stats for this one, and no player really stood out to earn POG honors.

    (Sorry for the short post, busy day+blowout against a fake team...)

    Wildcats Have No Answer On Defense

    image.jpg

    Statement From The Coach: "We couldt stop the pass, we will be spendng a lot of time these next two weeks working on our defensive scheme and maybe try to get some of our younger guys involved in the secondary".
    The Wildcats have a bye in week 4, enough time to regroup and reroute for Utah in week 5!

    Washington Bounces Back For First Win on the Year

    Washington had problems getting into the endzone. Throughout 3 quarters, they could only get 3 FGs onto the board. It wasn't until late in the 4th until Sankey finally got into the endzone for the Huskies. Overall, the defense played well for the most part, but also gave the Ilini a chance after a busted coverage led to a TD which tied it up at 17. The Huskies were able to move down the field and kick a FG to go up 20-17. The defense held and intercepted a 3rd down pass that ended the game.

    Keith Price - 10/14 191 yards, 1INT
    Andrew Hudson - 4 tackles (2 TFL), 2 Sacks, 1 Fumble Recovery

    GG -Balla- The game ended up being my #1 ESPN Classic game. Good luck the rest of the way.

    Oregon Strength Proves Too Much for Cal, 39-37
    Despite jumping out to a 14-0 lead, Cal could not close the W out in this one. Oregon dominated this one in terms of physical strength. On offense I could count 3-4 pancakes, plus 3 broken tackes, and on defense they made my OL look like a JV Powderpuff team. Oregon's Defense was very aggressive, committing 4 RTP penalties, but what they gave up in penalties, they earned back in forced turnovers, often getting into the backfield untoched in run and pass plays, really disrupting the Cal offense. Cal had some bright moments from their QB who had almost 100 yards on the ground and over 300 yards in the air. His turnovers, however, proved to be too costly. D. Thomas was by far the Oregon player of the game. Oregon's scheme was to get him the ball on every play if possible and it worked. He averaged 11 yards per carry for a total of 244 yards. He broke three tackles per play and got stronger as the game went on. There was no stopping him, he would run through a brick wall for a W. The Oregon passing attack was not overly prolific, due to the dominance of their run game, but a few screens kept the Cal defense honest when they needed to. Cal had a chance to tie it up and send the game to OT late in the fourth, but a failed conversion ended this one. Tough way to go down.

    Cal will go back home feeling like they let this one get away, and this week's practice will focus directly on not turning the ball over. Turnovers definitely cost them the game, and the OL was a big reason for it.

    POG: D. Thomas- 22 ATT 244 YDS 2 TD 11 YPC

    Northwestern Rebounds in Home Opener Against Utah

    [​IMG]



    Kain Colter and the Wildcats get it done in Evanston defeating the Utes 44-31. The Wildcats came out on fire in the first quarter of play lead by senior quarterback Kain Colter going 10/11 through the air for 188 yards and 3 TD passes and 93 yards on the ground and a TD. Junior running back Venric Mark left the game early with 8 carries and 36 yards suffering a mild concussion that would bench him the remainder of the game giving sophomore running back Jordan Perkins a chance to show what he can do on the field. Perkins finished the game with 120 yards on the ground on 31 carries and 1 TD. Leading the receiving core was sophomore WR Pierre Youngblood-Ary with two catches for 88 yards and 1 TD. Also adding to the tally were sophomore WR/TE Dan Vitale with one score and senior Rashad Lawrence with a TD. The defense for the Wildcats was impressive but still needs to work on their secondary strength and find a way to stop the passing attack, the defense was lead by senior FS Davion Fleming and Junior OLB Collin Ellis each adding 5 tackles to seal the game for the Cats.

    Utah was lead by Qb T. Wilson who was 21/27 though the air for 276 yards, and RB K. York with 13 carries for 55 yards and 3 TD’s on the ground.


    Statement from the Coach: “We look good on offense; our young guys are stepping into some important roles on the field and making huge plays for us. We will continue to improve on defense and tighten up our secondary, we have too! Big Ten football is here and we need to be ready.”

    Statemet From the Player of the Game: (Kain Colter) "The guys are really leaving it all on the field this year, we are showing real improvment as a whole unit. Im excited to see how we finish this year in B1G play, Ohio State is good, REAL! good but we have some things no one has seen us do yet, it's gonna be a great B1G football game!



    ***This week, Coach Brown and the Wildcats will host his alma mater #7 Ohio State (4-1). Ohio State is coming off a tough loss to Wiscnson.
    In recruiting news, the following Northwestern targets have announced their decisions:
    - (****) #7 LG Tyler Martin from Adamsville, AL has committed to Northwestern

    Wildcats Shock The Buckeyes In Evanston 55-38
    [​IMG]
    The Wildcats are on fire! The Wildcats hosted Ohio State Saturday and were expected to get blown away but Coach Brown had other plans. The Wildcats, led by senior RB Venric Mark ran like there was no tomorrow on 33 attempts for 221 yards and 3 TD’s on the ground. Wildcats veteran QB Kain Colter showed up again wanting to prove he was the premier B1G QB to watch in 2013. Colter was perfect through the air going 7/7 passing for 106 yards and rushing 119 yards with two TD’s on the ground. Also adding to the offensive attack, sophomore RB Jordan Perkins with 9 carries late in the game for 42 yards and WR Prater with one catch for 44 yards. On defense, Proby, Williams and Fleming each had 6 tackles to seal the deal against the highly touted Buckeyes.

    The Buckeyes, led by junior QB Braxton Miller and Junior RB Carlos Hyde. Miller completing 25/34 passes for 336 yards and one TD. Hyde chipped in with 23 carries for 78 yards and 3 TD’s, and also led the receiving core with 5 grabs for 94 yards. Miller seemed to struggle through the air throwing 3 interceptions against a Wildcat secondary that has seemed to struggle themselves.

    Braxton Miller: “The pass rush was intense, it seemed like I had no time back there”


    Northwestern has certainly made a statement in the B1G and has no intention of slowing down. Safe to say the Wildcats are in the running for a B1G title!

    Statement from the Head Coach: (Coach Brown) “I’m as shocked as you are! I told my guys before the game we have nothing to lose but so much to prove, and they came out with a fire in their eyes. This team is something special; they have a desire that goes beyond winning. We are seeing a big improvement in our secondary and guys are stepping up and making big plays when we need them.”

    Statement from the Player of the Game: (Venric Mark) “My offensive line made it happen for me. Every time I touched the ball I had a wide open hole to run through.” “This is our year” mark stated.

    The Wildcats now 3-1 overall and 1-0 in B1G play, travel to Camp Randall in week 7 to take on B1G powerhouse #21 Wisconsin, who also beat Ohio State 26-21 in week 5. This game will be yet another test for the Wildcats. Coach Brown says they have much to work on before going into week 7 and will not take this game lightly after beating Ohio State.

    Cal's Offense Gets Back on Track
    Cal-52 UCLA 21

    The Golden Bears finally got their offense going again after some lacking performances the last few weeks. They put up exactly 500 yards in this one and a season-high 52 points. UCLA's offense had better production than the scoreboard shows, with 355 yards of their own. They struggled in the Redzone and turnovers really hurt them in this one. The game started out going back as a defensive struggle with a punt, FG, interception, and another punt on the first four drives of the game for both offenses. The FG came from a big punt return, not any offensive prowess. Then the offenses came out to play, with UCLA striking first on a great catch by their TE Taubler in triple coverage who then shed two defenders and trucked a third for the score on a great individual effort. Cal was not to be outdone, with a slow methodical drive focusing on their option attack they were able to push the ball into the endzone on a nice inside 4 yard run by their QB Zach Kline.

    The second quarter was filled with back and forth action, teams trading TDs on the next five posessions. Then with under 1 minute left, UCLA made a costly mistake throwing the interception, allowing Cal to score another TD with 11 seconds left in the half. This turned out to be the game-winning play, as Cal got the kickoff at halftime aoved the ball down the field for the score, going up 45-21. Then UCLA was forced to start pressing, which led to more mistakes. The next posession was another interception, and Cal made them pay with a big homerun on the toss play to counter the very aggressive UCLA defense that was trying to get the ball back. The 52 YD TD run was the last score of the day and the one that truly put the game out of reach in the third quarter.

    If it wasnt for that interception at the end of the second that ended up being a 21-point swing, this game could have been a very different story, as it truly went back and forth for 90% fo the first half.

    GG tar heel best of luck the rest of the way.

    POG: Cal A Back Brendan Bigelow 7 ATT 102 YDS 1 TD - His speed on the outside really opened up the field and made UCLA pay for having to be aggressive when they got down.

    Arizona Upsets USC
    Wildcats Win 55-41
    [​IMG]
    Los Angeles, CA- The Arizona Wildcats won what could be a program defining game on Saturday upsetting the powerful ISC Trojans behind another great game from Javelle Allen.

    The Trojans got off to a quick start taking a 14-3 lead early in the second. But Arizona scored 28 unanswered points in the second to take a 31-14 lead into halftime. Javelle Allen scored two TDs on the ground and found Austin Hill twice for TDs.

    The Wildcats widened their lead to 45-21 in the 3rd before USC made a furious comeback in the 4th. The Trojans scored 21 points in the final 3 minutes to tighten the score and make this one closer than it was.

    POTG
    Javelle Allen: 29-50 for 384 yards 4 TDs and 2 picks; added 13 carries for 60 yards and 2 TDs

    Jake Fischer: 11 Tackles

    Upset in Camp Randall

    IMG_2044.JPG
    Northwestern traveled to Camp Randall Stadium over the weekend and walk out with a 41-22 victory. Led by sophomore RB Jordan Perkins who picked up where he left off the last time he had to fill in for an injured RB Venric Mark. Mark left the game in the 1st half with 13 carries for 55 yards. Perkins has really stepped up into the role and will see more playing time in the coming weeks coming off a 121 yard performance on 15 carries and 2 TD’s. Senior QB Kain Colter started off slow and didn’t really have much impact through the air, but he continues to live up to his legs on the field, Colter went 7/12 passing for 69 yards and 1 interception. Colter also ran 6 times for 74 yards and 2 TD’s. The Wildcats are very explosive on offense and have depth in many positions making it easy to keep on firing if a starter goes down.

    On defense the Wildcats were led by C. Bryant who had 6 tackles and 1 interception and 1 sack and I. Campbell added 6 tackles as well. I think the Wildcats have finally found the answer on defense and have shown improvement each week.

    For the Badgers, T. McEvoy completed 16/21 passes for 212 yards and 1 TD, and RB J. White added 118 yards on the ground off of 29 carries and 1 score. Wisconsin really didn’t play bad; they just go out hustled on both sides of the ball falling to the improving Wildcats unit. Led the Badgers on defense was D. Hillary with 10 tackles.

    Statement from the Head Coach: (Coach Brown) “I couldn’t be happier with the effort our guys are putting in each week in practice, it shows on the field. This team wants the B1G title and I believe we have the recipe to make that happen.”

    Statement from the Player of the Game: (Jordan Perkins) “When coach says your up Perkins, I’m ready! I have been working on my footwork and really trying to be an asset to this team. When they call I’m ready every down.”


    In recruiting news, the following Northwestern targets have announced their decisions:
    - (*) Kicker - Randy Roberts has committed to Northwestern

    The Wildcats will host a pretty tough Minnesota team (5-1) overall, as the Wildcats press on, improving to (4-1) overall. This will be yet another test for the Wildcats, as they know that any week in the B1G can be a surprise.

    Purdue comes from 21 down to beat Nebraska
    The Cornhuskers started the game on fire scoring the 1st 3 TDs of the game and the 1st score came only 2 minutes into the game. QB T. Martinez hit WR Enunwa for a 22 yard TD. RB A. Abdullah scored 2 TDs on the ground (1,3) to put Nebraska up 21-0. Purdue would finally put together a TD drive as QB R. Henry hit RB A. Hunt from 19 yards out to make it 21-7. After a fumble recovery late in the 2nd QB R. Henry would hit A. Hunt again this time for 34 yards as the lead was cut to 21-14 at the half. Purdue got the ball back and scored as QB Henry hit WR R. Mostert on a 16 yard pass. After another TO by Nebraska QB Henry throws a 45 yard bomb to a wide open Mostert off a play action fake to gibe the Boilermakers the lead 28-21. Purdue would kick a FG in the 4th to bring the final score to 31-21. QB Henry threw for 238 yards 4 TDs 1 INT. The Purdue defense came up big in the 2nd half allowing 0 points.

    The Wildcats Find a Way to Win
    [​IMG]
    Sophomore RB #25 Jordan Perkins Rushing Between Two Gopher Defenders

    Evanston, IL – The Northwestern Wildcats escape at home against a tough Minnesota Gopher team that gave Wildcat fans a scare. Minnesota looked like they were going to just run away with the game early, scoring the first two touchdowns of the game Saturday night.

    Kain Colter couldn’t really find his game through the air going 7/13 on passes for 93 yards and 1 TD in the match. Colter, again played his tune on the ground racking up 104 yards rushing on 14 carries and 2 TD’s. RB Venric Mark added to the rushing total with 87 yards on 18 carries and 1 TD, followed by sophomore sensation Jordan Perkins with 44 yards rushing on 3 carries and 1 TD late in the game. R. Lawrence had two grabs for 43 and K. Prater added 3 catches for 24 yards and one score. The defense was led by C. Bryant who had 7 tackles and 1 sack sealing the deal in Evanston on Saturday. The Wildcats special teams may be the reason for the win, Venric Mark had 5 kick returns for 238 yards total adding 1 TD.

    The Gophers were led by sophomore QB P. Nelson and Junior RB D. Kirkwood on offense. Nelson played a great game going 21/25 through the air for 219 yards and 2 TD’s, while Kirkwood rushed for 111 yards on 28 carries and 1 TD. Lead the Gopher receiving core was I. Fruechte with 4 catches totaling 70 yards and 1 TD.

    This game was closer than the final score would have it. The Wildcats were really tested for the first time in B1G play this past weekend and it’s clear that the job is never done on the gridiron. If you missed this game you missed a classic hard hitting B1G football game that seemed to have a rivalry feel to it, nonetheless the Wildcats prevailed and took this win in humility.

    Statement from the Head Coach: (Matt Brown) “There was no reason for the amount of yards we gave up on defense. I have no words for our performance, we got lucky!”

    Statement from the Team Captain: (Kain Colter) “I just couldn’t find my rhythm, our defense deserves most credit for the win. We as a team need to regroup and find a better way to win, and keep on winning, the conference isn’t a walk through and it showed tonight.”


    In recruiting news, the following Northwestern targets have announced their decisions:
    - (****) QB Michael Berg has committed to Northwestern
    - (*) FB Kellen Scott has committed to Northwestern

    The Wildcats improve to (5-1) overall on the season and (3-0) in B1G play. This week the Wildcats go back on the road next week to face the Iowa Hawkeyes (2-5) overall and (0-3) in B1G play. Although the Hawkeyes have struggled so far this year, the Wildcats will prepare accordingly and be ready to go this coming Saturday. GO CATS!

    Wildcats Outlast The Hawkeyes 45-31 in B1G Thriller

    [​IMG]
    Sophomore RB #25 Jordan Perkins Scoring Late in the Game
    Iowa City – The Wildcats went into a hostile environment on Saturday night when they took on the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes had nothing to lose and everything to gain but came up short falling to the Wildcats 45-31. Kain Colter was nothing less than amazing in the 45-31 win against the Hawkeyes Saturday night; Colter went 15/18 through the air for 195 yards and 2 scores. On the ground the Wildcats were led by RB Venric Mark who tallied up 152 yards rushing on 24 carries and 1 TD. The real game changer on the ground was again senior QB Kain Colter adding 84 yards on the ground off 17 carries and 2 TD’s. Also adding to the rushing total was sophomore Jordan Perkins who had 70 yards on 11 carries. The receiving core was led by K. Prater who had 4 catches for 45 yards. The defense was again led by the veteran LB D. Proby , Proby had 6 tackles and 1 sack to ensure a victory for the Wildcats.

    The Hawkeyes showed up to play and gave the Wildcats a real game. The Hawkeyes were led by QB J.Rudock who went 20/30 passing for 266 yards, 2 TD’s and 1 interception. RB D. Bullock played a solid game on the ground rushing for 158 yards on 19 carries and 1 TD. Bullock added a carrier high 82 yard rush early in the match. C. Fiedorowicz caught 6 balls for 93 yards for the Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes have some good solid football players but just can’t seem to find an answer on defense as they go down again in a heartbreaker at home.

    Statement from the Head Coach (Matt Brown): “We played a hell of a game on offense and that is usually the case. Our defense didn’t play as well as I had hoped but we were able to add another notch to our belt. I’m really proud of how hard our guys are working and the passion that I see in every play”.

    Statement from the Team Captain (Kain Colter): “I feel like we can beat anyone right now, I don’t want to sound like I am boasting but we are playing with a different attitude this season and it continues to carry over each week. We want our shot!”

    This was another solid performance from the Northwestern Wildcats as they improve to (6-1) overall and (4-0) in B1G play as the Hawkeyes fall to (2-6) on the year and (0-4) in the B1G.


    ***KAIN COLTER MOVES UP TO #2 IN THE HEISMAN RACE***

    In recruiting news, the following Northwestern targets have announced their decisions:
    - (****) RE Ben Martin has committed to Northwestern


    The Wildcats will go into this week prepping for an explosive Nebraska Cornhusker team that is (4-3) overall and (1-2) in B1G play. The Wildcats know that the Huskers are strong, fast and will play hard and they will have to play the same way to win this game on the road. GO CATS!

    Colorado Not So Buff

    Wildcats Hammer Buffaloes 62-23


    Boulder, CO- Arizona rebounded from a heartbreaking loss to Utah with a resounding romp over hapless Colorado. Not even Ralphie could have slowed down the Wildcat offense this week.

    It was obvious from the start Arizona wanted to run the ball effectively and often, and the 2 offensive stars, Javelle Allen and Ka'Deem Carey, were happy to do so. Carey ran 14 times for 120 yards and 1 score; while Allen carried 15 times for 109 and 2 scores. Carey also excelled in the receving game catching 4 passes for 66 yards and 1 TD.

    Carey's TD was a work of art. He caught a quick bubble screen from Allen, sidestepped one defender and angled to the sideline, he made 2 defenders miss with a juke move inside and quickly bounced back outside, and out ran the defense for a TD. Carey also had a 44 yard run that was reminiscent of Onterrio McCaleb's run that won Auburn their national title.

    Early in the 3rd quarter Carey took an inside handoff and was flipped into the air after a 10 yard gain, he appeared to land on his back, but the play wasn't whistled dead. Carey played heads up football, and took off running after not hearing a whistle. The Colorado defense wasn't able to run him down until he reached the 1 yard line. (crazy play. I saved the highlight and uploaded it, take a look.) That run set up Allen's 2nd rushing TD of the day.

    Allen's first came on the Wildcats opening drive. He led a long drive down to the Colorado 15 yard line, and on 3rd and 8 scrambled 15 yards for a TD. Allen had a good game rushing the ball, but he was just as effective passing it. He finished 26-38 for 344 yards and 5 TD's.

    The Wildcat defense resembled the "Desert Swarm" days under Dick Tomey. Players were everywhere at once, and they held the Buff's to 286 yards. Colorado only converted 3/13 3rd downs, but they were 2/2 on 4th downs. Next week Arizona will travel to Berkeley to take on Coach Austin1990 and his Golden Bears.

    Arizona and Cal went toe to toe in this one, with Cal barely pulling it out on a failed 2-pt conversion that would have forced OT. Cal started off moving the ball well but they could not pull away, throwing an interception and missing a FG in the redzone early. Arizona started off slow on offense but they rallied behind Cal's failed drives and their offense became a force to be reckoned with once they got moving. Arizona's HB had a great game, averaging over 10 yards per carry and really tearing up the Cal defense all day long. He almost single-handedly carried Arizona to the victory in this one. After Cal's hot start, the momentum really swung back in Arizona's favor, and they eventually took a 24-14 lead with a little over 2 minutes left in the first half.

    The second half followed suit, with the 3rd quarter belinging to Cal and the fourth belonging to Arizona. Arizona had more success running th ball, but they fell just short on a couple drives, which was all Cal needed to take the lead. The player of the game without a doubt was Cal's QB Zach kline, who threw for over 300 yards, and only 3 incompletions in the entire game, going 24-27. The excitement all happened in the last few minutes, with Cal moving down the field and being stopped on 3rd and goal from the 2 yard line. They kicked the field goal to go up 38-30 with 28 seconds left. Arizona stormed down the field and scored in a very quick 22 seconds with only 6 seconds left in the game. This one came completely down to the 2 pt conversion, and Arizona threw a quick pass that was deflected at the last second to give Cal the win.

    GG hornfaninbama good luck the rest of the way.
