    Shut the Duck up. Cal's defense comes up big.

    It was one of those games. Eight drops by Cal's WRs. Cal's Kicker missed two field goals. After intercepting a Oregon throw deep in Duck territory, the Defensive Lineman fumbles the ball as he's being tackled and Oregon recovers. Cal's starting QB Matt Hall was knocked out of the game for two quarters.

    But the Bear defense was perfect, holding the Ducks to under 200 yards passing and just 30 yard rushing. Oregon was just 3 of 14 on third downs and 0 for 2 on 4th down conversions, including a critical stand on the Cal 9 yard line with under two minutes left to play.

    In defeating Oregon, a 5 Star program, Coach Jerry Bumpers satisfies one of his contractual obligations. Coach Bumpers wasn't available for comment.

    Players of the game:
    HB Dasarte Yarnway 22 carries, 147 yards, 1 TD, Fumble lost
    The Defense as whole gets a game ball.
    And so does the Punter. 6 punts, 3 inside the 20

    Oh my lord again, it's hard for me to do a recap on this game but I will start in the 4th with the score:​
    North Texas 28 MTSU 24​
    After a North Texas touchdown MTSU received the kick off and took it to the 27 yard line. From there we moved the ball with ease down inside the North Texas 10 yard line. With 16 seconds left, Rosenvall would throw a pick and North Texas would take over possession. The game seemed like it was over. The defense decided to step up, stopping North Texas 3 straight times and using all 3 time outs with 3 seconds left in the game. North Texas would punt against an all out blitz by MTSU. No block, but the return man has a chance. He found a seem, and reached the two yard line where I attempted to jump the ball in, only to get hit and fumble the ball backwards. Now I wish I had thought of getting a photo, but let me paint the picture. 5 players in the picture, MTSU punt returner on the ground, as well as the North Texas player who tackled him, neither can get the ball. Both North Texas and MTSU players are locked in a blocking animation, nobody there can grab it. There is only ONE MORE PLAYER NEAR THE BALL. It was a MTSU player, as soon as I hit circle to switch to him, he had already dove on the ground, ball downed at the 4 yard line. Game over MTSU falls to 6-4.​

    Mississippi State Falters Late Against Alabama, Loses 24-34

    The Mississippi State Bulldogs could only look back on their first lost of the season and ask, "what if." What if they didn't turn the ball over three times? What if their WR's didn't drop timely catches? What if the offensive line held off the pass rush for just a half second? "There is a lot of disappointed young men in that locker room, I'll tell you that," said coach nrg_qbz. "Alabama is no joke. They have 5-star recruits all over the field. All high calibre athletes. We just couldn't hold them off."

    The Bulldogs jumped on Alabama early, scoring 17 straight points which included an incredible 82-yard INT return by CB Michael Carr and a 6-yard reception by WR Michael Johnson. However, Alabama would score a TD and a FG in the 2nd quarter to cut the lead to 17-10. The third quarter saw huge hits all over the field, as each team forced one another to punt the ball time and again. Alabama finally broke through on a 2-yard TD run to tie up the game.

    Tied 17-17 heading into the fourth quarter, the Bulldog faithfuls felt unease, as the Crimson Tide had rolled off 17 straight points. A costly fumble by TE Jason Little deep in Alabama territory swung open the floodgates. Alabam would march down and score on an 11-yard pass. Things went from bad to worse, as QB Stegall was hit while throwing the ball, resulting in a 37-yard pick-six. The stunned crowd looked on as Alabama had scored 31 straight points. Not a team to give up, MSU scored immediately on their next play, an 84-yard pass to WR Michael Carr. Unfortunately, backup Stegall would tear his shoulder on the play and is out for the year. "I really feel for him. He played tremendously while our #1 QB has been out. It is heartbreaking to see his season end like this," said coach nrg_qbz.

    Alabama would convert key 3rd downs to run out the time...or so MSU thought. Rather than kneeling the ball, Alabama decided to kick another FG as time was running out. When asked about this, coach nrg qbz said: "That's for you and the media to talk about."

    The Lobos got sloppy due to the Vegas lights :), but pulled out the W late in the 4th.​
