    Rice survives against ECU

    In his second game at the helm, coach Bear W was pleased with the way his Owls performed. The game was in control throughout, however Rice allowed it to get closer than it should have been due to a couple of special teams errors. Johnson was wildly inaccurate at QB for the Pirates, throwing many ill-advised balls that landed yards away from target.

    Early in the game one errant Johnson pass was intercepted by Michael Nordstrom who returned the pick for a touchdown, just barely breaking the plane as he got dragged down from behind. This set the Owls up with a 14-3 lead, and they never looked back.

    ECU tried to mount a comeback with two special teams touchdowns, one on a punt return and one on a kickoff return lead to 22 points in the fourth qaurter for the Pirates.

    The Owls continued to move the ball on offense and the defence chipped in with some big plays, included an incredible hit from Nordstrom that jarred the ball lose, with free safety Gayle Riley recovering for a scoop and score.

    The Owls will look to build on the victory and will take care to play a full game, not letting up in the fourth quarter.

    Future opponents of the ECU Pirates should feast on the inaccurate passes of Johnson but should be mindful of the shifty ECU return men on special teams.

    Houston beats Tulane 28-7.

    Houston jumped out to an early 14 pt lead in the first quarter and never looked back from there.

    HB Bryce Beall was the player of the game rushing for 186 yds and 1 TD, while backup QB Cottan Turner put in a solid performance, for injured QB Case Keenun. He had 208 yds passing and 3 TD's, also 2 int's.

    Houston goes to 5-1 on the year

    UNLV came back from their loss to SMU, with a vengence against SDSU 52-6. The Rebel D was back on it's game forcing 2 or 3 first quarter turnovers on way to a 28-0 1st quarter lead. Supersimmed the rest of the game just to keep the score realistic as possible.

    Tigers Golden Against Knights​




    Memphis, TN- We'll take it. That's what the Tigers were saying after walking away with a 21-14 win over the Knights of Central Florida. The game featured 8 turnovers (5 UCF, 3 Memphis) that even saw a starting quaterback benched.

    Memphis, coming in on a 2 game win streak, came out firing on their opening possession. Inside UCF territory is where there would run out of ammo. A weak armed throw from Memphis quarterback Tyler Bass would prematurely end a strong looking drive. That would be a theme for Bass in this one as he was picked 3 times in the first quarter, underthrowing wide open guys by 10 yards, and leading to his benching at the end of the first quarter.

    Central Florida would race out to a 14-7 lead after one and the Memphis crowd was in awe as the score could of been much more. Not only was the Tigers' turning the ball over but UCF had problems of their own as they fumbled 3 times in the opening quarter. Both offenses struggled mightily in that opening frame but yet still managed to score a combined 21 points.

    The second quarter would calm down drastically (or the offense learned to hold on to the rock) and offenses would get on track. Memphis, led by their backup, would score twice in the frame to jump out to a 21-14 lead.

    Game over. Yup. Game over. The Memphis defense, Coach Jerzey's Memphis defense, has only allowed 7 points in the second half during his short tenure as coach. The second half dominance continued as they shut down another high powered (by CUSA standards) offense for the third straight week.

    "Now if we can get the offense going during the second half we probably won't have to sweat so much towards the end." Coach Jerzey stated afterwards.

    Memphis improved to 3-2 overall and 3-0 in C-USA. After a slow start to the season, the Tigers currently lead their C-USA division.


    *Sorry for no stats. I have to share my ethernet cord with my PS3. I promise my summaries will get better, lol.

    Wacky first game for new coach Hurricane

    New Baylor coach DJ Dunn was in shock at how bad his skill guys were on offense. Between the TE, WR's and RB's 9 dropped passes, 2 of them TD's and 2 would have been first downs. Something to work on in practice.

    As far as the game goes Baylor gave up several big plays on defense and blew a 14 point lead twice and an 11 pt lead twice. In the end too much Griffin at QB for the Bears though. Since no one could catch the Bears went to the spread option and ran the ball for over 200 yards holding off a tough Wyoming team 49-38. The turning point actually was a sack and a fumble recovery by DT Taylor and a couple goal line stands as Wyoming went for 2 4th downs they probably should not have.

    UNLV rolls to another win, this time 40-23 over Air Force. The Rebels went to Air Force with hopes of clinching bowl eligibility, and did so in a convincing 40-23 victory. Air Force score on their first play from scrimmage, a 73yd screen to the FB. But then was held scoreless til late in the game, when the Rebels had the game well in hand and the 2nd string was in .
