UTEP 42 - Tulane 7
Miners finally make some big plays
The Miners were finally able to make some big play and it showed in a 42-7 route of visiting Tulane. Freshman UTEP RB Johnny Means rushed for a career high 230 yards + 2 tds, which included rushes of 74 yards and 80 yards. Mark Siegel was 9-18 for 223 yards + 2tds, with a 79 yard pass for a score. Not to be out done in the special teams, the Miners returned their first kickoff for a touchdown! UTEP will play in-state rival Houston next week.
MLB Justin Jones Shatters NCAA Records with 8 (eight?!?!?!) sacks as ECU beat out Houston45-36 in a straight up Wild-West Shootout!!In what turned out to be a ridiculous game ECU were able to rely on some key stops on defense to outlast Houston 45-36. The game started out with Houston having its way with ECU as their Air-Raid, no huddle offense was taking its toll on ECU's defense which looked confused and unable to do anything. This led to Houston scoring on their first two drives, first on a 16 yard pass from Terrance Broadway to DeAndre Perry, then on a Justin Johnson 10 yard rush. Those touchdowns sandwiched a ECU touchdown when Matt Brown took it in from 1 yard out to give Houston the 14-7 lead after 1. Before the 2nd quarter started Coach Zikry was seen screaming at his defensive coordinator, and we asked him about what he was so fired up about:"Well it was obvious to me that we couldn't get any pressure with our front four. We were trying to sit in soft zones and have our linebackers try and cover the middle of the field, but we were getting roasted out there. I told the coach that we need to start sending in more blitzes, and have our linebackers make some plays and try and pressure the QB, and BOY did that work! We ended the day with 11 sacks, and what can I say about our leader on the defense Justin. He is just an incredible player with great work ethic. He was simply unblock-able on the day and that's thanks to the different blitzes we sent him on, which really looked to confuse Houston whos QB liked to sit in the pocket for a little longer than most teams, waiting for his receivers to get downfield."The second quarter was all ECU who outscored Houston 21-3 in the quarter. First ECU scored on consecutive drives, both on Brad Wornick passes; one from 2 yards out to James Holt and one from 3 yards out to Mike Price. That was followed by a 34 yard field goal by Houston and with 16 seconds left in the half, ECU scored yet again as fullback Brian Gallagher was able to score on a 5 yard pass from Wornick. ECU took a 28-17 lead into the half.The third quarter was surprisingly quiet, as Houston scored the only points in the quarter as Terrance Broadway found DeAndre Perry yet again for a 70 yard bomb to bring them within 4 points. Not to fear though, as the 4th quarter was filled with fireworks. First the Pirates scored 14 unanswered as first Lamar Ivey caught a 2 yard pass from Wornick, before Korey Reynolds was able to take a fumble back (after a HUUUUUGGGGEEEEE HIT) for the 92 yard touchdown return. Houston were able to score 14 points of their own, but with ECU scoring a field goal of their own in between the two Houston touchdowns, ECU were able to barely hang on to this one as they eventually won this crazy ass game 45-36. The win pushes ECU's record to 5-2 (3-0) and next week the Pirates stay at home to face Memphis.
Let's get on these recaps guys! !!
Lobos 35 Utah Utes 28
A remarkable 2nd quarter would be the diffrence needed to for the New Mexico Lobos to knock off #12 Utah in Salt Lake City. Lobo QB Darian Godfrey would throw for a school record 408yds and ties another with 4 passing touchdowns. The main recipent of Godfrey's passing camp was Lobo WR Quntell Solomon who caught 6 passes for 154yds and 3 scores. The Utah defense had no answer for the Lobo passing game which built a commanding 35-14 lead early in the fourth, but the Utes would not give up scoring 14 unanswered points, and coming within an onside kick recovery of sending the game to OT. The win keeps the Lobos quest of their first Mountain West crown alive with a record of 3-1 and 3-0 in conference play.
D. Godfrey 25-30 408yds 4tds
K. Carrier 9car 40yds
Q. Solomon 6rec 154yds 3tds
Texas Tech 7 SMU 12,
The Number 20 ranked red raiders came in after a huge win against OU and got upset by the SMU mustangs. This was a true dfensive battle, SMU had the ball 7 more minuetes than Tech did and that proved to be the difference. SMU played steller D as did the red Raiders. Usually you cant take field goals over TDS and expect to win but the Stang D stepped up huge last night. SMU is paying against conference foe Tulsa next week.
That is probably the lowest scoring game either of these teams have played in a long long time.
yeah no kidding haha or the lowest poins anyone has scored on them
Air Force 28 San Diego St 54In a very ugly afair the Falcons stumbled and faltered until the Aztecs had beat them easily in the worst game since Coach Dub took over as head coach.The story of the game was turn overs as strong Aztec defense forced an amazing 5 interceptions and a fumble. This ugly loss drops Air Force to 2-3 as they travel down the road to take on rival Colorado State in what seems to most as a must win for this Falcons team in their quest for a bowl game.
Cavaliers Pull Out the Win Despite Not Scoring an Offensive Touchdown
Virginia 16 vs. #24 Miami 14
Special Teams Propels Virginia to Victory
It wasn't pretty by any means, but the Virginia Cavaliers beat the Miami Hurricanes by 2 points, sending them to a 7-0 overall record, a 4-0 conference record, and a #21 ranking. "We definitely struggled out there today," said Coach E "But guys stepped up when we needed them to, and that's how we pulled out the victory." QB Michael Strauss would complete only 10 of 22 passes for 147 yards and 3 INT, HB Torrey Mack carried the ball 24 times for 114 yards.
This was the first game of the season in which the Virginia defense did not force a turnover, but they made up for it by holding the Miami offense to less than 200 yards of total offense.
CB Devin Wallace returned a kickoff 102 yards for a TD in the 2nd quarter in what would be Virginia's only TD. Down 14-13, kicker Jimmy Howell made one of his 3 FG with 2:31 to play and the Cavalier defense followed by forcing a 3 and out, and finishing the game.
The Cavaliers face another tough game next week as they host the Tar Heels of North Carolina
