    Season 2 Week 8 Summaries

    SMU had extra motivation against the Tulsa Hurricanes in Dallas. For the first time since being hit with the death penalty, the Mustangs entered a game with some numbers beside their name. The fans were understandably perplexed but then worked in to a frenzy when they were informed that the numbers were in, in fact, a top 25 ranking.

    Additionally, a few highly touted H.S. seniors were on hand to take in the experience...they were not disappointed.

    SMU used a suffocatind D to put away the underachieving yet dangerous Hurricanes 31-3. SMU lacked big play ability without starting RB McNeal yet were able to keep drives alive and wear down Tulsa's D. The Mustangs held a 21-9 advantage in ball control.

    SMU moves to 8-0 on the season with a off date next week before taking on the Rice Owls in week 10.

    Devon Dasher rolled this week with a 44-7 victory in Murfreesboro over Schnellenberger's FAU Owls. A near perfect completion percentage enroute to over 300 yards in the air and 60 on the ground were Dasher's contribution.

    FAU's inability to move the ball was tough to watch throughout the game.

    Utah State vs #2 Stanford

    The Cardinals take care of the Aggies of Utah State with a convincing defensive performance Saturday afternoon. Stanford got their scoring going early in the first qtr when A. Luck hit WR D. Baldwin on a 13 yd pass play that gave them a 7-0 lead.
    After a stalled drive by Utah State, Stanford once again drove down the field, this time relying on the legs of RB S. Taylor, who took it in from 27 yds out to make it 14-0 after 1.
    The next qtr saw the defense step up. They forced 5 three and outs in the qtr, (a new personal best) and scored on two short redzone td passes from A. Luck to WR C. Owusu and R. Whalen respectively, to take a commanding 28-0 lead with 4:09 remaining in the second qtr. Shocked at Stanford's ability to score so quickly, Coach Forever decided to work the running game for the rest of the game. Second string RB J. Stewart would get a chance to shine as he scored 3 rushing td's in relief of S. Taylor. Stanford would go on to get their first shutout of the season in a route of the Aggies.

    Stanford improves their season record to 7-0(3-0). Next week, The Cardinals travel to Las Vegas to take on the Wolfpack of Nevada. The winner will take control of the WAC.


    Final Score:

    Utah State: 0

    Stanford: 49




    Player of the Game

    Back-up RB, J. Stewart, took advantage of his opportunity; rushing for 172yds on 23 car with 3 td's!​

    Memphis Finally Succumbs 48-38

    Just one of those games. CPU led ECU was unstoppable. My recievers didn't help my cause a they dropped 11 balls. T.Bass threw for 300 plus yards but it took 60 attempts.

    *Phone dying will complete once wife is off computer

    Edit: Once my daughters get done watching Tinkerbell I'll hook my summary up. My bad about the laziness.

    #5 Troy 38-30 UL Monroe

    Troy Survives, Stays Perfect

    Jerrell Jernigan powers his way in for 1 of his 2 touchdowns

    The Troy Trojans survived a road scare at Louisiana Monroe. Monroe played Troy even through 3 quarters and even took a 3 point lead in the 4th quarter, before the #5 team in the country scored 2 touchdowns to beat the Warhawks. With the win, Troy has made it through 2/3 of their schedule and half of their conference schedule unscathed. Troy and rival Middle Tennessee State appear to be headed for a de facto conference championship game when they square off in Murfreesboro on November 27th.

    Toy scored first with 4:01 left in the 1st quarter, but had to settle for a 45-yard field goal from Will Goggans to give Troy a 3-0 lead. Three minutes later, Monroe would tie the game at 3-3 on a 26-yard field goal of their own by Radi Jabour. Just 1:32 into the 2nd quarter, Troy was back on top when Jamie Hampton connected with Player of the Game Shawn Southward for a 41-yard touchdown pass. :56 later, Troy pushed their lead to 14 when Hampton hit Jerrell Jernigan for a 57-yard touchdown and Troy looked to be on there way to a blowout win. Monroe had other ideas though. Troy got a defensive stop, but was forced to punt the ball back to Monroe and Goggans pinned the Warkhawks inside their 1 yard line. The Trojans looked poised to get a safety, or at least get the ball back with good field position, however, on the first play, Frank Goodin took a handoff, broke a couple tackles, and outran the rest of the Troy defense for what went into the record books as a 100-yard touchdown. Troy then went 3 & out and Trey Revell hit Julian Griffin for a 16-yard touchdown with :49 left in the half and the game would be tied at halftime.

    Monroe opened the 2nd half scoring with a 95-yard touchdown pass from Revell to Anthony McCall to give the Warhawks a 24-17 lead. 1:33 later, Troy knotted it back up with a 3-yard touchdown run by Southward and that's how the 3rd quarter ended. Monroe went up 27-24 :49 into the final quarter when Jabour kicked his 2nd field goal of the game, this time from 18 yards. Troy would go back on to just :59 later on the 2nd touchdown pass from Hampton to Jernigan and with just under 2:00 to play, Southward scored his 3rd touchdown of the game from inside the 1 yard line and all Monore could manage was a 38-yard field goal with :06 to play to make the final score 38-30.

    Troy is now 8-0 overall and 4-0 in conference. They will be on a bye next week and then host Louisiana Lafayette the following week.

    UNLV falls to Washington St. 31-21.

    In a game that saw star RB Trotter lost for 7 weeks, the Rebels just couldn't get it together. QB Clausen threw for 300+ yds and 3 TDs, but also gave it to the Cougs 4 times via the pick. Yet again, UNLV couldn't handle the pressure of being ranked, as they went into the game #25.
