Season #2 (NCAA 2011): Scores
Post your season 2 scores here.
Arkansas 33 #9 TCU 30 (OT) ...upset special!
Arkansas would use a great mix of pass (34) and run (30), and Mallett would end up setting a school record with 412 yards passing. Budding star Joe Adams caught three touchdowns,including the one to win the game in Overtime.
Game started off great for the Hog defense, and was that way until 2:00 to go when TCU came storming back. They even recovered the onside kick. It's a great way to start and now Syracuse comes to town...
Sorry about no pics or recaps, the wire crashed last night...luckily it saved my game...I was truly sweating it.
#4 USC gets by Syracuse 24-10
This game was a lot closer than the score indicates. USC had mounted a 17-0 lead by early in the 3rd quarter, but then the 'Cuse defense started to make some stops. A few big plays, and Syracuse was right back in it 17-7. A big 3rd down sack, and Syracuse would turn the stop into 3 points and only trail by 7 early in the 4th quarter. USC had been tough all day on defense, but during my next drive, they were pulling out all the stops. They were laying guys out forcing drops, and jumping the snap hitting my back 3-4 yards behind the line. I had converted a few, and was at midfield with just under two minutes remaining when they forced a 3rd and 18. I was just trying to pick up a few yards to get me in a manageable 4th down, but they were having nothing of it. A great play by their corner cutting underneath the route sealed the game. But wait, USC was full of BS and decided to score a TD before the clock ran out. I was out of TO's and they just kept right on moving the ball. Earlier in the game, they went for it twice on 4th down in the red zone. I was truly amazed. They certainly had the Lane Kiffin mentality.
Irish Come Away With Rivalry Victory!
31-28, If you didn't read my post it was a great game! Gary Gray picked off Luck 3 times, Crist was good, Floyd was tremendous!
South Carolina 33 North Carolina 13
The game started off as a defensive battle as North Carolina's defense was getting some major pressure from their front 4, not giving Marcus Lattimore any room to breathe in the run game. This led to only 3 points being scored in the quarter, as North Carolina's Casey Barth kicked a 19 yard field goal to give the Tar Heels the 3-0 lead after 1.
With 6:01 left in the half, the South Carolina defense came up with what was probably the play of the game as Bryn Renner tried to roll out on a playaction pass from his own 8 yard line but instead was sacked by rookie DT Kelcy Quarles in the endzone for a safety. The South Carolina offense would take advantage of their field position after the kickoff as Brindise found WR Toni Gurly for 34 yards, giving the Gamecocks the 9-3 lead. With 42 seconds left in the half North Carolina added a field goal, but with all 3 timeouts left the Gamecocks really wanted to add another score before the half, and with 6 seconds left Zac Brindise was able to find Jason Barnes on a beautifully thrown 18 yard pass to give South Carolina the 16-6 lead and deflate the home crowd.North Carolina got right back into the game in the 3rd quarter, as Bryn Renner found WR Dwight Jones for a 14 yard touchdown throw, narrowing the South Carolina lead to 3 at 16-13. This is the closest North Carolina would get as the Gamecocks put up 17 unanswered points to close out this game. First, Zac Brindise would throw his 3rd touchdown of the day as he found 5th WR Stephen Flint on a 4 yard throw, and less than a minute later Brindise would throw his 4th touchdown pass of the day, finding DL Moore on a 52 yard bomb after escaping heavy pressure from the North Carolina defense. With the 30-13 lead heading into the 4th, the Gamecocks decided to run the ball and control the clock, and with no time on the clock and after taking a delay of game penalty after some clock mismanagement from the coaching staff (who thought they could just run out the clock to end the game), Todd Bower stepped in and nailed a 29 yarder to give the South Carolina Gamecocks the 20 point win, 33-13.Player Stats:South Carolina ->QB Zac Brindise: 20-27, 326 yards, 4 TDs.HB Marcus Lattimore: 17 carries, 78 yards.WR Toni Gurly: 6 catches, 118 yards, 1 TD.LOLB Antonio Allen: 7 tacklesDT Kelcy Quarles: 6 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 safety.MLB Toquavius Gilchrist: 7 tackles
Redshirt Sophomore AJ McCarron had an auspicious debut for the Alabama Crimson tide. The crowd noise got to the first time starter and he had 3 picks. Fortunately for him, the Tide's vete ran receiving corps was there to have his back and he went 24-41 for 384 yards and 4 touchdowns. Junior Trent Richardson had a terrible day, rushing for 6 yards on 13 attemps and 2 lost fumbles, one run back for a touchdown. Richardson's butterfingers caused the coaches to have to pass far more than they would have liked to on the road in Happy Valley. Michael Bowman had 178 yards and 3 touchdowns on 8 receptions, and Brandon "Boobie" Gibson had 123 yards and a score on 7 receptions.
The Crimson Tide D was the story today though, as junior LE Damion Square had 3 sacks and 4 tackles for loss. The D held the PSU offense to 63 yards rushing on 27 attempts, and only 183 yards passing. PSU's offense only scored 2 touchdowns, and had the Tide held on to the ball better, the game would not have been so close.
Alabama 28 - PSU 21
Hogs move to 2-0Arkansas thrives off three late game interceptions to prevail over 'Cuse 35-24
A soggy day in Fayetteville forced the Razorbacks to change their gameplan going into a key game vs the Syracuse Orange. The opening kickoff was received by the Hogs and they put together a 3 minute drive, mostly behind the legs of HB Ronnie Wingo. Wingo would cap the drive with a 29 yard score. Syracuse would answer at the beginning of the second quarter when HB Antwon Bailey crossed the goaline for a 1 yard score. 7-7. With less than three minutes to go before halftime, QB Ryan Mallett would throw a strike to Jarius Wright, to make the score 14-7. The Orange would add a FG before halftime.
Syracuse received the ball to begin the second and half and was forced three and out by the Hog defense. The Razorbacks would then go on another 3 minute drive, ending in a Wingo score. 21-10 Arkansas. Syracuse would come storming back, and with less than 1:30 to go in the third they would nip into the lead. John Kinder would hit FB Adam Harris for a wide open touchdown to make the score 21-17. On the very next offensive play, LB Jason Wood broke on a Ryan Mallett pass. He intercepted it and took it to the house to put the Orange up by three, 24-21. Mallett showed great poise after this costly interception. Spreading the ball around on the next drive, Ryan would throw a beautiful touch pass to Chris Gragg. Gragg went up over the defender and snagged the ball, then was able to barely sneak across the goaline. 28-24 Hogs, and no looking back. After forcing an interception, Wingo would score his third touchdown of the day. This time it was a 42 yard breakaway up the gut. 35-24 Arkansas prevails.
GG Mike. I am telling you man, a player or two on defense and look out. Your offense is legit man...It's always a pleasure to play against you.
Incredible game Bob, sorry, my phone died about 3 minutes into the game. I just got your text this morning. Go Rangers. I had a blast playing Mallett. Wingo is a stud, as he should be. That guy was tough on me last night. I am going to be in even more pain next season, I lose my RB, and 2 of my top 3 receivers. We will see how it goes. Maybe I will surprise a team or two this season.
Thanks man.. It was tough for me too. You kept me off balanced a good portion of the game
Arkansas has a running game too. Good thing I have back to back bye weeks to prepare for our week 5 match up.
Colemanchu, sorry about the two straight bye weeks, that one must have slipped by me. I was trying to keep an eye out for those.
South Carolina 35 Pittsburgh 24
The Gamecocks came into week 2 fired up as their home opener pitted them against Pittsburgh, a hungry team coming off a week 1 loss. The game started off horribly for South Carolina, as Pittsburgh were able to drive down and hit a 50 yard FG before capitalizing off Zac Brindise's first interception of the year when Tino Sunseri hit WR Andre Wright for a 10 yard touchdown and all of a sudden the home crowd were stunned and the home team were down 10-0 early. With 30 seconds left in the quarter South Carolina were able to get on the board, thanks to a Marcus Lattimore 2 yard run on 3rd and goal. Then, the game changing play occurred, when the Pittsburgh return man fumbled the ball, and it was returned for a 17 yard fumble return for a touchdown and just like that, in a span of 6 seconds, Pittsburgh saw their 10 point lead evaporate and become a 4 point deficit. That would be all the scoring in the 1st quarter with South Carolina up 14-10.
South Carolina were able to build on their lead as their FB, Travis Stallings, took it in from 1 yard out, again on 3rd and goal to give the Gamecocks the 21-10 lead, but Pittsburgh answered right back with a touchdown drive of their own as Tino Sunseri threw his 2nd touchdown pass on the day, this one to TE Brock DeCicco from 26 yards out. With 1:49 left in the half South Carolina went on the attack, and with 23 seconds left in the half Travis Stallings scored his second touchdown of the quarter, again taking it in from 1 yard out, to give the Gamecocks the 28-17 lead at half.
The second half was quiet on the offensive side of the ball for both teams, as only 1 touchdown was scored by both teams, both of them coming in the 3rd quarter. First, Pittsburgh were again able to creep within 4 as Tino Sunseri got his 3rd passing TD of the day on a 2 yard pass to his halfback, Dion Lewis. But once again, South Carolina responded immediately, scoring on the ensuing possession as Zac Brindise threw his only touchdown of the day to Stephen Flint from 3 yards out to give the Gamecocks the 35-24 lead, and that would be enough as neither team would score after that. The win gives the Gamecocks a 2-0 record to start the season, while Pittsburgh drops to 0-2.
South Carolina Player Stats:
QB Zac Brindise: 21-33, 367 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
HB Marcus Lattimore: 19 carries, 61 yards, 1 TD (is anyone else finding it as hard as me to get any running room???? seems like as soon as I hand off the ball there are 3 defenders already in the backfield...maybe its just me?)
WR Alshon Jeffery: 10 catches, 210 yards.
ROLB Shaq Wilson: 6 tackles
Notre Dame (1-0) @ #24 Michigan (1-0)
--One hundred thousand plus filled the Big House to witness one of the oldest rivalry's in college football and none would be left disappointed. Neither team got anything going in the first quarter as both defenses played well. The rest of the game however would be a different story.
After a Michigan interception, the Wolverines put the first points on the board with a 34 yard field goal from Gibbons. This began what would be four straight drives where the teams alternated touchdowns. The Irish were spectacular with touchdown passes of 70 and 77 yards to Evans and Floyd respectively. The Wolverines had to grind it out a little more but were able to get 12 yard touchdown passes from Himingway and Odom to make the halftime score 17-14 Michigan.
Neither offense slowed down much in the second half as Michigan halfback Touissant took the third play from scrimmage right at the Notre Dame defense for a 74 yard touchdown run, which was again answered as Woods scored on a 3 yard run of his own. The scoring continued in the fourth as Roundtree(37 yd cth), Rudolph(70 yd cth), Grady(16 yd cth), and Gray(1 yd run) on added touchdowns. Grays touch made it a 3 point game with just under a minute left, and the Irish fans saw victory well within reach after they were able to recover the onside kick. Unfortunately the Irish luck ran out as the Michigan defense was able to pick off Crist for the third time on the day and seal the deal giving the home team a 38-35 win.
Player of the Game - T. Forcier - 13 of 24 258 yards, 4 td's, 0 int's
Stat of the Game - Turnovers - Notre Dame - 3 Michigan - 1
Great writeup Colemanchu! It was one for the ages!!
Sweet game there guys, that Michigan defense looks like real life.
Yeah take away the three 70+ yard touchdowns and my defense would be nasty!
Lots of 30+ yard plays in that game overall. Floyd is nasty though, and I am guessing that Evans is no slouch either.
Rudolph is a big contributor too, His size and speed (not to mention his hands) help me out. But like Colemanchu said minus the three big plays his D was great... Evans is flat out FAST!!!
South Carolina 72 Georgia 66 (5 OTs)
Atlanta, GeorgiaIn one of the craziest games South Carolina has ever played, a game in which Zac Brindise broke the school record for passing yards with 495, Alshon Jeffery broke the record with 272 yards receiving, and middle linebacker Toquavius Gilchrist broke the school record for sacks with 4, the South Carolina Gamecocks were able to outlast the Georgia Bulldogs in a 5 overtime thriller 72-66. What's even crazier about this game is that at one point South Carolina had a 35-10 lead in the 3rd quarter, before Georgia came storming back. Onto the recap:The scoring started with South Carolina getting on the board first, as Zac Brindise would find Stephen Flint for a 14 yard score to put the Gamecocks up 7-0. Georgia would then score 10 unanswered, first Caleb King would score on a 16 yard run before a Zac Brindise interception would lead to a 48 yard field goal for Georgia to take the 10-7 lead after 1.Then South Carolina took, what they believed, was absolute control of the game, scoring 28 unanswered. They would score 3 touchdowns in the 2nd quarter, first Zac Brindise would find Tori Gurly for a 10 yard score, followed by Marcus Lattimore scoring his first touchdown on the day, rushing it in from 9 yards out, before Brindise would get his 3rd touchdown of the day, finding Alshon Jefferey on a 66 yard bomb with 56 seconds left in the half to give South Carolina the 28-10 lead at half (highlight on hub).The 3rd quarter started with South Carolina getting the ball, and on the 2nd play from scrimmage Marcus Lattimore took a handoff up the middle and used his incredible break-away speed to score on a 81 yard touchdown run, and with the 35-10 lead at this point, South Carolina's fans thought this one was in the bag, boy were they wrong! Georgia would score the next two touchdowns on the day, first Aaron Murray would find ORson Charles on a 9 yard pass, before Murray would find Israel Troupe on a 2 yard pass to narrow the deficit to 11, as South Carolina took a 35-24 lead into the 4th.In the 4th South Carolina would add a field goal with about 6 minutes left, as Todd Bower would hit it from 35 yards out to give the Gamecocks the 14 point lead. A lead they held onto till Georgia scored with 46 seconds left in the game as Murray found Tavares King on a 53 yard pass to make it a one score game. However, with all their timeouts having been burned earlier, Georgia went for the onside kick, and incredibly, after a Gamecock receiver had the ball bounce of his hands, Georgia were able to recover and with 22 seconds left in the game Murray found King yet again, this time from 20 yards out to pull the Bulldogs even in the game at 38-38. Onto overtime we went, but this game was far from over!South Carolina started OT with the ball, and scored as Brindise found Alshon Jeffery. Advantage South Carolina. However, Georgia would answer right back as Caleb King rushed it in from 4 yards out. Tied once again and onto a 2nd OTGeorgia would start with the ball this time, and Murray was able to find Tavares King for a 3rd time this game, as they hooked up for the 11 yard score. Advantage Georgia. South Carolina would respond themselves, as Marcus Lattimore took it in from 1 yard out to tie the game up yet again as we headed into a 3rd OT, where extra points were no longer allowed.South Carolina started with the ball in the 3rd OT, and the Zac Brindise - Alshon Jeffery combination connected for a 3rd time today, for a 13 yard score, and with the successful 2 point conversion, South Carolina were in great position to finally end this one, or so we thought. Georgia would respond yet again, as Murray found AJ Green for a 14 yard passing touchdown, and THEY were succesful on their 2 point conversion, tie game yet again, onto a 4th OT.Georgia started with the ball and scored on a 2 yard rush by fullback Ben Flanagan, but they were unsuccessful on their 2 point conversion. Down 6 and with the ball, South Carolina had a chance to finally end this one. They did the first part by getting the touchdown as Brindise threw his 6th on the day, and 2nd to Flint, on a 6 yard pass, but they were unsuccessful on the 2 point conversion and onto a 5th OT we went in this incredible game!South Carolina made it 5 for 5 in OT as fullback Travis Stallings took it in from 1 yard out, but they were unable to score on the 2 point convo. Now, Georgia got the ball and South Carolina decided that staying back in a soft zone just wasn't working. So here came the blitz, and it worked! Aaron Murray was sacked on both 1st and 2nd down, and with an incomplete pass on 3rd Georgia faced a 4th and 24, and as Aaron Murray dropped back, middle linebacker Toquavius Gilchrist came up the middle and hit Murray hard, sacking him for a 4th time in the game and finally ending this incredible game as both teams were almost too tired to walk off the field, as South Carolina outlasted Georgia 72-66.South Carolina Player Stats: (inflated because of all the OTs)QB Zac Brindise: 31-49, 495 yards, 6 TDs, 1 INTHB Marcus Lattimore: 22 rushes, 133 yards, 3 TDsWR Alshon Jeffery: 12 catches, 272 yards, 2 TDsWR Jason Barnes: 8 catches, 97 yards.MLB Toquavius Gilchrist: 9 tackles, 4 sacks, 1 FF.ROLB Shaq Wilson: 8 tackles.LOLB Antonio Allen: 7 tacklesNext week the South Carolina Gamecocks 3-0 (1-0) are on the road to face Mississippi State in another SEC showdown, the Gamecocks hope that they will be able to win in less than 5 OTs in that one though!!
HOLY SHIT!!! That's all I can say about that one.
Syracuse found their offense, too bad their defense will not be around this season. Great game JD, I'll get you with the Orange sometime in the future.
Next year I'll be unleashing this amazing left end I recruited last season...
Hogs CruiseArkansas warms up for Bama with a blowout of Vandy
Ryan Mallett had pinpoint accuracy early in the game and led the Hogs to a 21-3 lead at halftime. The Hogs would then use the run to their advantage and would score 21 more points in the second half to finish the game 42-24. Ronnie Wingo didn't have the greatest game yardage wise, but he added two touchdowns. This alone helped the Hogs stay balanced and kept the Commodore defense guessing. Next up for Arkansas is the Crimson Tide, in a HUGE showdown in Tuscaloosa.
In a battle of SEC titans, Arkansas traveled to Tuscaloosa to meet up with the #1 Alabama Crimson tide. The game would feature two of the top offenses in college football, with Arkansas easily matching up talent for talent with the national champion Crimson Tide.
Alabama would go up 14-7 in the first quarter, only to have Arkansas storm back under the powerful arm of backup quarterback Tyler Wilson who came in after Ryan Mallett was injured on the first play of the game. Bama would score before the half to go up 21-14.
Bama started the second half with the ball and scored to make it 28-14. Arkansas attempted to get back in the game late, but the gap in the score had become too much and they couldn't overcome Alabama's scoring. Bama needed their O to score because their D had no answer for Tyler Wilson and Ronnie Wingo. If Bama tried to defend the pass, the Hogs were running and if they tried to defend the run, the Hogs were passing. Wingo would end the game with 131 yards on 23 attempts with no scores. Wilson had 309 yards, 4 scores, and 2 picks.
For Bama, Trent Richardson would rip off 216 yards and 4 scores, with Sophomore AJ McCarron breezily racking up 168 yards on 9 attempts with 8 completions and 2 scores. Bama can't wait to travel to the Swamps of Arkansas next year to continue their rivalry.
