    Season 2 Week 3 Summaries

    North Texas 28 @ MTSU 37
    Big game in Murfreesboro for the Sun Belt Rivalry, and the fans were amped up for the "Black Out" [​IMG]

    First quarter ended in a 0-0 stalemate, as each offense was trying to figure the other defensive scheme out.

    The offenses kicked into gear in the second quarter, as Jordan Riley and Dasher exchanged TD's going into half time with a 14-14 tie.

    Second half was full of big plays for MTSU's offense...
    Dasher connected with Malcolm Beyah for a 54 yd TD and special teams came up big with a 90+ yard KO return for TD.

    MTSU's pressure defense and ill timed turnovers for North Texas were the story of the game.

    Great game, in what MTSU hopes is a signature win for the 2010 Sun Belt Conference schedule.

    One week after stunning in-state rival West Virginia, Marshall traveled to SMU riding high. The Mustangs dropped them back down to earth early and hard led by another great defensive performance. Marshall could only muster 147 yds on offense with their only points coming on a FG at the end of the first half. SMU held the Herd to 0 3rd down conversions on 11 attempts. For the year the SMU defense has only allowed offenses to convert 3 out of 35 times on 3rd downs and are giving up an average of 128 yds/game.

    Offensively, SMU was above average but nothing special. JR QB Bo Levi Mitchell was efficient again. Through 3 games he is completing 74% of his passes with a 7:1 TD:INT ratio while averaging 245 yds/game. The running game dropped off production wise but Marshall loaded the box with and let their LB's cover SMU's slot recievers allowing for some matchups on the outside.

    Final score: SMU 34-3. SMU moves to 3-0 (1-0 Conf USA) with a trip to Tulane upcoming next week.

    #6 Stanford vs Southern California

    In what may prove to be a game for recruiting dominance, Stanford had to prove they are worthy to be mentioned in the same breath as a Trojan of USC. Stanford has been in the shadows of its in-state rival since the college football era began. Stanford was able to squeak by the Trojans last season, but to gain the respect of the California faithful, winning against USC is a must.

    Stanford would come out and show that they are for real. They outgained the Trojans 518-388yds in the game. Stanford QB, Andrew Luck had his best game statisticly this season. He completed 15 of 31 passes for 339yds and 3 td's. He was, however injured late in the third qtr with back issues. A full diagnoses will be available by Wednesday on his ability to play against Houston next week.
    RB, Stepfan Taylor also had a pretty good day for the Cardinals. He ran for a buck 31 with 2 td's on the day. USC's speed wasn't able to get on track, as the Stanford Cardinals made their tackles when they had to and kept the Trojans off balance.




    The win improves Stanford to 3-0(0-0) on the season. Next week, Stanford travels to Texas to battle the Houston Cougars(Drunken).

    Final Score:

    Stanford: 46

    USC: 27

    Memphis 24 Tulane 17

    In an early season upset, Memphis snuck by Tulane 24-17. Both offenses played awful in the first half combining for five turnovers. Memphis turned the ball over twice in the redzone to keep he game close. A close game throughout but the Memphis secondary was finally able to corral the mighty Tulane pass attack in the fourth to seal the win.
