    #5 Texas A&M ESCAPES USF WITH VICTORY

    The final score does not truly reflect the game. It was a hard fougth game from the opening kickoff. USF out gained A&M in every stat except turnovers. The Aggs were able to escape by forcing 4 turnovers and not giving the ball up any.

    Great Game Scarecrow

    What a game!! The Wildcats came to play, using their balanced attack to keep the Buffs defense off-balance. The Buffs were continually playing catch-up in this game, working from a 14-7 first half deficit. The Buffs got the ball back trailing 27-24 but couldn't get a first down after a sack and three consectutive incompletions. The Wildcats got it back with just under 2 minutes at the Buffalo 25ish. They ran three straight runs and couldn't get the first, so they kicked the FG and extended the lead to 30-24 with about 1:30 left. Now it was finally Amir Anderson's time. He had been frustrated all game long, the Wildcats had confused him with different looks and blitzes. The Buffs got the ball on about their own 30 and needed a td, without the benfit of any timeouts. Anderson was cool as a cucumber, completing a first down pass for 13 yards, he hustled his team up to the line and saw that NU was showing blitz. He got the snap and his slot left WR broke the jam, so it was just a matter of throwing the right ball. (Anderson overthrew this pass on the last series in almost the identical situation) The pass was complete for a 30 yard gain. The Wildcats called a timeout to regroup and change personell. With the ball at NU's 35 yardline, Anderson again saw a blitz coming from the left, so he hit HB James Holman in the flat for 11 and a first down. Hustling up to the line he saw single coverage to the right, so he threw a back shoulder to WR Stevenson at the 3. Two runs up the middle and the Buffs had tied it up. After a timeout to ice the kicker, the Buffs hit the extra point to take the lead.

    On the kickoff, Coach dakota called for a squib, which did not work out too well, and gave the Wildcats the ball at their own 45ish, with about 25 seconds left. The Cats completed a 15 yarder to their HB, who was able to get out of bounds. On the next pass, Coach Mors went deep for the td and was picked off at the 1, with 4 seconds left. Game's still not over, can't take a knee at the 1!!! Holman was met at the goalline by the NU FS, who had blitzed. Luckily, Holman was able to fall forward and avoid the safety.


    Great game Mors!! Idaho/UNLV rematch??

    Great game to you, Slick. That game was pretty tight up until the end. I have to work on throwing passes to my guys, not yours... haha.

    #4 Stanford - 31
    Rutgers - 6

    Rutgers traveled across the country to face a tough Stanford team. The stats were pretty even for both teams but the disparity in the score stemmed from big plays by the Stanford defense. The Cardinal intercepted two passes (including 1 in the end zone), scored a defensive TD on a recovered fumble, and stopped the Scarlet Knights on 4th and goal. On offense, Stanford was far from spectacular but made a couple of plays when called upon. GG Rutgers - my team is far more talented and you were on the road. If not for a couple of lucky breaks which went my way, the game might have come down to the wire.

    Good game beazus. That fumble recovery for 6 points that the computer wouldn't let me review pretty much iced the game. I only have 1 playmaker on offense and my QB isn't very accurate, so going for a home run leads to turnovers, so I could not set up a play to take the top off the defense. The safety you play with is tough. I look forward to our MAC games in 2011.
