    Season 2 - Week 5 Scores

    Week 5 is up.

    One user game - Cincy vs Tennessee.

    When we advance will be determined by whether everyone wants to wait for Gators to return from vacation on monday night (see the separate thread for the poll).

    Records with red font include results from week 5 games that have been played up until this point.

    Big East teams represent 4 of the top 7 users spots, while Oklahoma is representing strong for the Big 12 but the other 3 Big 12 teams take up 3 of the last 4 user spots in the rankings. The SEC is stretched out amongst the rankings holding down spots 3,4,8, and 12.

    Conference Records
    Big East: 13-2
    Big 12: 10-7
    SEC: 10-5

    There's been a ton of early season user matchups and some pretty big games early on this season. Which conference do you guys think is the best/strongest?

    If I had to rank the user conference strenghth, here's how I see it:

    Roster strength - SEC/Big 12 (really too close to call), Big East.

    Coaching strength - Big East, SEC, Big 12

    In the Big East we have Noles (best defensive player in the OD), Max (who is vicious with the 4-2-5 and fleXbox One attack), Gators (who has won multiple championships in a tough Southern Exposure OD) and me :D.

    I put the SEC second over the Big 12 mainly due to Beazus, Eagles and Dakota having won championships in other OD's. I'm not aware if anyone in the Big 12 has ever won a BCS title, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Notre Dame gets an easy win vs Navy, 59-21, in a game that had nearly the entire recruiting board visiting.

    The starters only played in the first half, with Clausen throwing for over 200 yards and a couple of scores and Armando Allen picking up 65 yards and 4 TD's on the ground. WR Malcolm Floyd continued his good play from the 2nd half of the Kansas State game, to finish with over 120 yards and 2 TD.

    The backups were led by RS freshman HB Cierre Woods, who picked up over 100 yards and looks like he will be a real weapon next season in a competition with Theo Reddick for the starting job after Allen graduates.

    No correction needed for me, I haven't won shit. I also sport a 7-10 overall record on TF, so I need to start kicking some people's asses to get above 500%.

    I'll get my game in tonight, last night was dedicated to watching the Mountaineers advance onto the elite 8.

    I watched some of the hoops as well. Came into the night wanting to see some more upsets, came out of the night being really impressed with how good Kentucky is on defense. If they play defense that way the rest of the tourney, they're coming away with the title.

    OU takes the Bedlam Bowl in convincing manner beating OK St 48-21 in their own house. OU D held strong the whole game. In the 2nd half OK St. returned a Kick off for a TD and a big pick 6 off a deflection. Oklahoma State's only offensive TD came on a big pass play where the receiver got behind the corner early in the 1st. OU's offense was strong as Bradford was 23-41 for 463 yards with 4 TD's and 2 picks. Murray ran for 154 yards on 30 carries with 2 TD's. Broyles caught 8 for 162 yds and 2 TD's. TE Mensik caught 4 for 153 and a TD. Defensive standout DT Gerald McCoy had 5 tackles and 3 sacks as OK St. struggled to hold him off even with double assignments on him.

    The Tigers win ugly in this one, a rain soaked mud fest. The Gamecocks gave away 2 pick 6's in the first quarter, which created too large a hole for them to get out of. Auburn was led on offense by HB Onterrio McCalebb, who accounted for over 100 yards of total offense and 1 rushing td. Kodi Burns played well, throwing for 200 yards and rushing for 1 td. Another SEC showdown is up for next week.........I forgot who, but its a cpu opponent.

    Guys, since this week is all cpu games, I want to advance tonight. As of last night several games were unplayed, so get them done asap.

    Also, don't forget to do a game summary in here.

    #21 Nebraska - 55
    vs
    #24 Kansas - 21

    This one was ugly, but the final doesn't tell the real story. Nebraska had a 41-0 halftime lead and the 2nd stringers played the entire 2nd half. Nobody really put up eyepopping stats, but the team as a whole played really well. It was good to get a win here after dropping out last 2 games.

    Finally got in the win column against the CPU Bearcats. 2 defensive TD's by the Vols helped build an early lead and we held on as Cincy went 4 and 5 wide for most of the second half trying to come back.

    The Longhorns, who have been struggling all season, decided to get back to basics: run the ball: QB Sherrod Harris had a solid game directing the offense and finished 10-16 for 173 yards, 3 tds and 1 int. RB Fozzy Whitaker had 41 rushes for 201 yards but no tds. Tre Newton had 2 close rushing tds.

    MLB Dustin Earnest had a big game with 9 tackles, 2 tfl and 1 sack. DE Eddie Jones was in the QBs face all day with 8 tackles, 3 tfl and 3 sacks.

    Guys, we are advancing tonight at midnight EST.

    Pittsburgh, LSU and Florida all risk having their games simmed if they aren't played by then. Come on guys, you've each now had 2 1/2 days to play a CPU game.

    The Tigers shut down the visiting Bulldogs in this SEC West match up. The LSU defense shined today, limiting MSU's look downfield and pressuring the QB non-stop. DE Chase Clement led LSU with 9 tackles, 3 sacks, and 1 forced fumble. On offense, Jordan Jefferson contributed on the ground and through the air- throwing 2 TDs and running for another. Next week, LSU travels to Vandy.
