A Thin Win!
Aztecs survive a thrilling game against Cal on the road. Defense created 2 key turnovers that really changed the momentum early in the game. Defensive captain Fely brought his boys ready to make plays his week after an embarrassing performancelast week. First play of the game CB Holder intercepts a pass and takes it to the house. Aztecs took a 14-10 lead into halftime and feeling great.
Of course there are two halves and Cal came out in the 3rd with a 2yd TD pass to take the lead. Things looked horrible offensively in the 3rd until MLB Fely's Int and returned it passed midfield set up a 3yd run by Muema with 2:55 left in game. Of course things are never that easy on the road. Cal then takes 1:30 to go down the field and score the go ahead TD. With just under a minute WR Lockett came up with 2 catches that put the Aztecs inside the 10. After 2 tries from the 6yd line, Coach drew up a winning call that hooked up Dingwell and FB Young for the win.
Coach Flores after the game, "this is why we coach for games like this and moments like that". "This was a great answer back and it gives us momentum leading to the bye week".
In Coach Schmidt Gemmabelli's second game as head coach at Ohio, the Bobcats were able to squeak by the Commodores. The rushing game was again a huge factor, on both sides of the ball. Ohio out-rushed Vanderbilt 313-63. Coach Gemmabelli praised the run defense after the game.
"Thank God our front seven played lights out run defense today. Their quarterback was tearing us apart and if they had been able to get some play action going we wouldn't have stood a chance out there."
Vanderbilt's quarterback threw only 4 incomplete passes, one of which was a spike to stop the clock. Neither team turned the ball over.
Ohio made a concerted effort to keep the ball out of the hands of Vanderbilt's red hot passing game, gaining 22 first downs and putting together multiple 10+ play drives.
Spartans upset #3 Stanford hanging on to a 27-21 Win
The Spartans close out Stanford late after building a big lead in the 4th for the second win of the season. After Fales tough start of the season last week throwing four picks, Fales late in last weeks game got the Spartans to a comeback win and the momentum continued into this big matchup against #3 ranked stanford. Fales was efficient and only made one mistake with one interception but was able to throw 20/25 for 287 yards and 2 TDs out playing Stanford's hogan who threw for 230 yards and 3 TDs.
The powerhouse Stanford Cardinals jumped out to a quick lead first in the first quarter with Hogan connecting with Cajustie for a 26 yard TD reception. The Spartans defense looked lost and gave up some big yardage in this initial possession and was looking like they would have a long day on defense. Fortunately, the Spartans offense picked up where they left of last week driving the field with Fales hitting his receivers/TE scrapping for a few yards here and there leading to a touchdown plunge by Ervin from 2 yards out to tie the score.
The 2nd quarter was all defense as SJSU was able to shutdown the Cardinal offense three times, but was only to get a FG to take the 10-7 lead going into halftime. In the 3rd, the Spartans defense played tough defense and was able to stop the Cardinals offense and causing a turnover by Hogan. The offense took over and ate up most of the 3rd with the ground game behidn Ervin, Gray and Jelks. Although the Spartans YPC was just about 3 yards, the Spartans grinded up the clock with Ervin rushing for 77 yards on 22 carries and overall the Spartans rushed 35 times for 115 yards. The Spartans added two consecutive TDs with Fales connecting with Jones for two 7 yard TD passes to take a commanding 24-7 lead in the 4th.
Finally, the Cardinals offense woke up and struck quick against the Spartans defense with Hogan hitting Montgomary for a 61 yard TD pass to bring the Cardinals within 10 points. After the Spartans add a FG to give them a 27-14 lead, Cardinals again drove the field with Hogan connecting again to Cajuste for another TD to help the Cardinals pull within 6.
With the onside incoming, Carr recovered the ball and the Spartans was able to run the clock and pull out the upset.
TOLEDO 35 MISSOURI 14 Rockets improve to 1-1 after an unlikely home opener embarassing Missouri 35-14. The Rockets came out with a plan of at least trying to run the ball to keep the mizzou offense off the field and try to slow down the game. The plan seemed to be working on the opening drive as the Rockets took it 71yds on a 15 play drive capped off with a TD run to go up 7-0. The opening drive was costly however as SR RB David Fluellen left game with an unspecified back injury and was unable to return to the game. The rockets stuck to their game plan and next man up mentality...enter freshman RB Marc Renney. Renney seeing his first significant snaps of the season carries the load toting the rock 28 times for 89yds 3tdsand 67yds rec with 2 tds. Renney helped propel the rockets past the Tigers 35-14. Defensively LOLB Junior Sylvestre continued to impress with 2tfl and 2 sacks. Junior SS Jordan Haden made possibly with an incredible interception that killed a mizzou drive and led to another rocket score. Toledo amassed 18 1st downs 371yds off , going 9 of 12 on 3rd downs and 0 turnovers Senior QB Terrance Owens was near perfect going 15/16 267yds 2td 0int
Whaaaaaaat???!!!!!! Double like
14-51 Air Force gets out to a good start in conference play with a drumming of Utah State Just as turnovers told the story for Air Force last week in their loss to Navy, Utah State's seven interceptions proved to be too much for Utah State to overcome. The second quarter is where Air Force did most of their damage, posting 24 points including 14 in the final minute. The first came on a speed sweep to speedster HB Jon Lee and MLB Connor Healy would pick off Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton for a 30 yard pick six, which would be his first of two interceptions and almost two pick sixes and giving Air Force a 31-14 halftime lead. Air Force pilled up 428 yards of total offense including 237 on the ground and three touchdowns on the ground. Utah State though would out gain Air Force in rushing yards by six yards despite having 289 total yards of offense. Utah State struggled mightly through the air, throwing for only 46 yards on 17 attempts and seven interceptions. Good game Ian Moss, those INTs on probable scoring drives killed you, good luck with the rest of your schedule.
I'll tell ya sometimes in an OD the CPU will make some shitty team play like Alabama and a great team play like shit -- you can always tell when the CPU does not want you to win a particular game when they break out the CPU cheese and other time the game doesn't care if you win or not
invite a bunch of recruits in to watch you play a cupcake and i guarantee the cupcake will play like "Bama for at least a half!

The Redhawks traveled to the Smurf Turf in week 2 to take on the Boise State Broncos. The beginning of the game started off well as Miami marched down the field on the opening drive of the game and kicked a field goal to go up 3-0 early in the game.
Boise State would answer with a field goal on the ensuing possession, followed by another Miami field goal. The Redhawks seemed to be firing on all cylinders on offense, but were unable to find the endzone. Those two early drive stalls may have been the determining factor in the game as the Broncos appeared to wake up and start playing at a whole different level right before halftime.
The Blue and Orange scored two touchdowns in the final two minutes of the first half as well as two touchdowns in the third quarter. Late in the third quarter the Redhawks were looking at a 31-6 deficit and it was too much to overcome. The Hawks would score twice in the final stanza, but at that point it was just stat padding.
Coach Robbins was not happy in the post game interview, but was impressed with how his team did not give up. "It's really easy to quit when you're losing that badly late in a game. I have to give it to my guys for still wanting to play football out there. It may not show now, but that makes you a better football team."
The Redhawks have a bye week and then travel to Lincoln to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
