UNC rolled into the shoe to play #18 OSU in its season opener. UNC would open up on D and would shut the OSU spread offense down as it would for much of the game. UNC would also stall out on it opening drive and be forced to punt. UNC would break the scoring drought with a 15 play 78yrd dirve for 7. UNC would tack on a FG with 9 secs left before half to go in with a 10 pt lead. But not so fast OSU would throw an 80yrd bomb and then kick a FG with 00 left on the clock? The second half would see the OSU D turn away every UNC drive past the 40 with sack after sack. OSU would kick a FG in the third and then mount its only drive of the game with 6 mins left of the game for their only TD to go up 3. Once again UNC would push down to the 35 to try and tie it, but the OSU D would have back to back sacks and seal the game. OSU didn't convert one 3rd down, but completed 9/10 passed and held the ball 7 mins less than UNC.
Penn State marched into Virginia and stole one from the Cavaliers. The Nittany Lions stormed out to a 10-0 lead behind HB Silas Redd, who finished the day with 143 yards on 23 carries and 1 touchdown. The Cavs finally got things going on offense, led by HB Perry Jones and WR Tim Smith. Jones finished the day with 166 yards and 2 scores, while Smith caught 3 balls, all for touchdowns, totaling 133 yards. Virginia took a 21-17 lead into half and it remained that way thru a scoreless third quarter. Then the flood gates opened, as the teams combined for 49 points in the fourth. Penn State scored three touchdowns in the final 3 minutes, including a 26 yard td strike as time expired. Virginia heads to Texas to take on TCU next week.
Updating from the tarmack... Baylor threw a costly pick 6 in the first half and the Mizzou QB could not be stopped. He threw for over 300 yards and had another 70+ on the ground. He was a scrambling machine. The Bears defense needs some work, especially in the secondary, before they can expect to win any big game.
#13 Kansas State - 38
#19 Nebraska - 20
Looks like we had the Huskers number all day long. Taylor Martinez went out in the 2nd quarter with an injury and we never looked back. Things got out of hand when the backup QB for Nebraksa threw a pick 6 with a minute remaining in the half to put us up big 24-3. They would unfortunately go unstoppable for a drive and score moments before haltime to come back within a couple of scores. Hubert continue to plug forward on the day as he quickly found the endzone from 4 yards out to start the 2nd half of action. Nebraska started to get some life to them as they rattled of 10 consecutive points but we put this to bed in the 4th with a 15 yd TD pass from Klein to Thompson.
The Wildcats open up at home to improve to 1-0. Up next is a user matchup vs Georgia Tech.
C. Klein - 10/15, 175 yards, 2 TD
J. Hubert - 24 Att, 137 yards, 5.7 ypc, 1 TD
A. Brown - 8 Tackles, 3 TFL, 1 Sack
D. Barnett - 6 Tackles, 1 INT-TD
Maryland ( LSUTRUTH ): 19
This was a very intense game with a lot of fire power. Maryland got the ball to start off and drove down the field to get a score after a beautiful drive. BYU would answer though with a great drive themselves making it a 7-7 contest. Maryland would start to get going but a great effort by the Cougar defense would end the drive with a punt. Sadly. Maryland pinned the Cougars deep after the BYU Punt Returner didn't catch the ball, allowing it to bounce inside the five. This would prove to be a fatal mistake as Michael Alisa was then tackled in the endzone for a safety. When Maryland got the ball back, the BYU defense stepped up again getting a strip and regaining possession. BYU QB Riley Nelson came out with a quick slant called but it was covered so he took off. Riley Nelson played hero ball and dodged the first tackle but was big hit and fumbled the ball. Being aware though, TE Kaneakua Friel picked up the ball and was off to the races to put up a 14-9 score. After Maryland tacked on a field goal, BYU mastered another drive and Nelson hit Cody Hoffman (this just sounds like the most Morman name ever) on a streak were the DB tried his luck with hero ball and failed. At half it was a 21-12
Maryland was halted again but on the ensuing drive, BYU ran a Shallow Cross trying to hit the Deep Out but the corner covering the Shallow route picked the ball and housed it for 6 making it a 21-19 game. BYU would not let Maryland threaten again as they scored another 14 more points to seal this game up 35-19.
GG LSUTRUTH Very close game. Few breaks either way and this is a different game.
C.J. Brown: 16/31, 236 yards, 2 INTS
Justus Pickett: 21 att, 80 yards, 1 TD
Stefon Diggs: 3 catches, 81 yards
Riley Nelson: 12/15, 189 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, 12 rush attempts, 72 yards
Michael Alisa and Josh Quezada: 17 total attempts, 44 yards, 2 TDs

Also the BYU Broadcast Network will be airing a replay of this game sometime in the next two days (this shit takes an hour to convert every part to a "movie" clip then an hour to upload to YouTube and there are 6 parts). Stay tuned!
Notre Dame : 73
NC State : 14
Dominated! Thats the theme for this game. Nothing the Wolfpack did, could make progress on Notre Dame. From the very first play, which the Fighting Irish scored on, to the very last minutes where the Irish were trying to run up the score, the Wolfpack just was outclassed in Raleigh. In a post game interview with coach IBO he said, " This is the most embarrasing game I've ever coached, if it wasn't for my contract stating no drinking during games, I would've been drunk by halftime."
Next week we don't know if the Wolfpack will show up, or stay home, but this season is looking to be doomed from the get go.
28 48Seattle -- This one was never a game. From the time the Huskies threw a 77 yard bomb during the game's first drive on a 3rd & 13, the rout was on. QB/HB combination of Price & Callier were down right unstoppable. My defense could do no right as play after play gashed through the front. Washington's defense was just the opposite. They consistently brought the heat and made my offensive line play no better than tackling dummies. On one drive inside UDUB territory they recorded 3 consecutive 8 yard sacks. The game was a hopeless effort to the tune of what iBO faced. At one point in the 3rd, I'll take video if it happens again, I ran a Power-I formation with the power run heading to the near sideline as I was on the hash. They were smart enough to load the box on the small side of the field with 7 guys, ridiculous. In other news, star WR Josh Boyce was lost for the game in the 2nd quarter. Also feeling the pain was starting HB Waymon James. Minus the non-sticking injury bug again, he will be lost for 3 weeks.

Georgia Tech - 16
Georgia - 14
This season's version of "Good Ol' Fashioned Hate" was an epic game that Tech fans will remember for years and Bulldog fans will drink to try to forget.. Georgia Tech pulled off an incredible upset on the road to get King Ad Ramp's tenure in Atlanta off to a good start.
This game had a pretty lengthy feeling out process. The 3-4 of Georgia stymied the triple option early on and Georgia's outstanding QB struggled to get going as the 1st quarter ended 0-0.
In the 2nd quarter, it looked like Georgia Tech might just be the better team. A solid drive resulted in a field goal to give the Yellow Jackets a 3-0 lead, and they put together a nice drive at the end of the half that ended with an Orwin Smith short touchdown run, and the upset-minded Tech team found themselves up 10-0 at the half.
Things turned quickly in the second half. Georgia came out running and Georgia Tech struggled to stop it. Brandon Harton got the offense going while Georgia Tech struggled to continue their 2nd quarter offensive successes. Harton scored on a short run 2 minutes into the half and then scored again on a 7 yard run with no time left in the quarter. So Georgia had their first lead of the game - up 14-0 - and it was going into the 4th quarter.
Tech's defense improved, but their offense couldn't move the ball. They tried throwing the ball a little more but some errant passes and dropped catches made it difficult. After a Tevin Washington gave Georgia a short field with 5 minutes left, it was looking dire for the Ramblin' Wreck. However, Sophomore MLB Quayshawn Nealy came up with a huge forced fumble that Georgia Tech recovered to quickly change the momentum of the game. Tevin Washington came out looking sharp on that drive, and they were able to convert a field goal to cut the lead to one with three and a half minutes to go.
Tech kicked deep, and Georgia converted a first down on their first play but couldn't convert again. With Tech using their timeouts to stop the clock, they got the ball with less than two minutes left and down by 1. On the first play, Tevin Washington hit Senior WR Chris Jackson who broke one tackle and took off for the end zone. He went down at the 1 to kill clock, but the 74 yard pass was the play of the game. Georgia Tech took a few knees, and the Bulldogs didn't use any timeouts, and Sean Poole kicked the game winner with 5 seconds left for a 16-14 upset.

NCST - 07 l 16 l 09 l 21 ll 53
PITT - 21 l 07 l 00 l 21 ll 49
It was a clear, beautiful day at Heinz Field for Pittsburgh's opening game, but the Wolfpack of North Carolina State was looking for a win after last weeks demolishing against the Fighting Irish. For the opening ACC game for both of these teams, they sure made it a shootout for the fans to enjoy.
Pittsburgh got off to a 14-0 run on the Wolfpack early in the first two minutes, leaving coach IBO throwing his headset and clipboard on the sideline. But after a team meeting that no one said a word about when asked afterwards, the Wolfpack came back out and scored on a 6 yard rush from James Washington. Immediately afterwards Shanahan was hooked up for a 66 yard pass for a third touchdown from Sunseri.
The second quarter got off to a good start for the Wolfpack, scoring 10 unanswered points. Broken zones and man coverages led to receivers breaking free and getting scores all day long for both teams. Sunseri threw a fourth touchdown pass in the first half with :35 seconds remaining in the half, but Mike Glennon tossed a bomb following for half ending score, but a missed field goal left the score at the half 23-28.
The third quarter remained pretty quiet until the 2:30 mark, where NC State put up a field goal, followed by 2 drives by both teams ending in 3 and outs. It was the returned interception that put the Wolfpack back in the game with :26 left to go in the third, but a failed 2 point conversion left the game at 32-28.
It was a wild shootout when the fourth quarter came into play. Pittsburgh scored early on a 62 yard pass, Sunseri's fifth and final toss of the night, followed by a 39 yard run after a drive killing interception by the Wolfpack. NC State didn't let that get them down, they came out firing on a 75 yard pass to keep the game in reach. A three point difference was all the Wolfpack had with over 4 minutes to play. Both teams had stalling drives and Pittsburgh failed to score and gave the ball back. NC States offense pushed down the field hoping to cap off a game winning drive, they punched the ball in on a 3 yard rush by Creecy, and it looked as if they would win this game. But a 95 yard kickoff return by the Panthers broke the hearts of many NC State fans in the crowd. With only 39 seconds remaining it was going to look like a loss for the Wolfpack and their coach, IBO, had already started taking his headset off. Mike Glennon came out and dropped a bomb to a wide open receiver for a 79 yard pass to take the final score of the game and give the 'Pack their first victory of the season.
In a post game interview with coach IBO, he stated, "After last weeks loss I was ready to pack back up and go to the little leagues again, at least there you could drink, but I had faith in these kids after spending all summer watching their practices, I knew they had it in them. We pushed the tempo a little bit and made some changes on offense after getting off to a 14 point deficit. If we continue to play like this all season I'll definitely have to buy rogaine for my grey hairs."

The Cavaliers traveled to Fort Worth to take on the #25 Horned Frogs, led by coach Darkwing . The first quarter scoring was non-existent, as a Virginia drive deep into Horned Frog territory was abruptly ended when HB Perry Jones got his bell rung and fumbled inside the ten yard line. The second quarter was also quiet, until UVA QB Micheal Rocco found TCU SS Geoff Hooker for an easy pick 6, giving TCU a 7-0 lead. The Cavs responded with a couple big plays late, including a 23 yard run by Jones and a 14 yard Rocco scramble, which set up a 6 yard touchdown pass to tight end Colton Phillips. 7-7 at halftime. TCU took a 10-7 lead on a field goal. The Cavs responded with a big 65 yard pass to WR Tim Smith, setting up a 10 yard screen to Jones for the score. 14-10 UVA heading to the fourth. After the Cavs made a great goalline stand, stopping the Frogs on four downs from the 2 yard line, they were unable to run out the clock and punted the ball back to TCU with about 2 minutes left. QB Casey Paschall started the drive with a great 49 yard option keeper to set up his 3 yard td run. 17-14 TCU. UVA connected on a couple of big passes to set up a 35 yard field goal to tie it as time expired. On the first play of overtime, Paschall threw a pick in the back of the end zone. UVA ran the ball 3 times to set up the winning field goal from 36 yards out. great game Darkwing That is a tough one to lose, good luck the rest of the way.

Welcome to the Big XII Mustangs! QB Stephen Kaiser pancaking a CB to clear a path for HB Zach Line! The cowpokes were looking to break the mustangs as they welcomed them to the big boy table and started strong as they received the opening kick and marched down the field and capped the drive off on a long pass against a broken coverage. SMU would have none of that, however and they proceeded to own the Pokes for the remainder of the game as they outscored OSU in every quarter except for a scoreless 4th. Things wouldn't be all roses, however as HB#2 Jared Williams was knocked out of the game on his first carry in the 1st quarter. Then, midway through the 3rd quarter SMU's superstar HB Zach Line was knocked out of the game and is expected to miss at least 2 weeks. Line was bitch slapping the OSU defense up until that point as he gained 154 yards on 14 carries before the injury. He will be extremely missed during next week's game in Norman against the Sooners. Coach Jello made it clear quickly that these weren't the same Mustangs as they ran the ball 39 times for 269 yards (with 10 players getting carries in the game) while only passing the rock 7 times. They were neigh impossible to get off the field as they converted 8/12 3rd downs, but 2 of those failures were by the backups in the 4th quarter. The SMU defense played much better than anticipated as they turned the cowboys over 3 times, including a pick 6 and only allowed 30% of their 3rd down tries to be converted.

2417 The 7th ranked 'Noles traveled to Chapel Hill to take on the Tarheels as ACC conference play got under way in week 2. FSU took the opening kickoff and marched down the field 74 yards to the UNC 5 yard line. On third and goal EJ Manuel connected with WR Kenny Shaw for the 7 - 0 lead. FSU forced a turnover as Vince Williams picked off UNC QB Bryan Renner giving the Seminoles but FSU could not capitalize on the field position. Both teams struggled offensively as neither could amount any offensive consistency. Late in the second quarter HB Giovani Bernard put UNC on the board with a 5 yard TD plunge. As the second half started Renner looked to be moving the 'Heels and take control of the game but FSU LB Nick Moody stepped in front of a pass for a 54 yard pick six down the sideline. But the defensive big play failed to spurn the offense as FSU continued its lackluster offensive effort clutching to a 14 - 7 lead. UNC kicker Thomas Moore trimmed the lead to four at 14 - 10 with a 34 yard field goal. Nithing really happened through the fourth quarter until UNC put together a strong drive in the final minutes. Then with 58 ticks left on the clock Bryan Renner ran the ball in on QB keeper from the FSU one yard line giving UNC the 17 - 14 lead. EJ Manuel looked his best in the hurry up offense as he marched his team down the field to put FSU in position to seal the victory but UNC held stron with its back on its goalline. FSU was forced to trot out Dustin Hopkins for the 18 yard field goal try. In the extra period EJ Manuel connect with TE Nick O'Leary to move the ball inside the ten yard line. Florida State was unable to punch the ball into the endzone with three consecutive plays. Coach Brinkley decided to go for it on fourth down and Devonta Freeman delivered with 1 yard TD run. UNC came fighting back and had the ball on fourth and goal looking to keep the game going but Renner was not able find an open receiver in the endzone. After checking down to an open receiver the FSU defenders were able to swarm and stop the player's momentum from getting into the endzone. GG edge7771 this was a weird game w/ no flow and the players moved very jittery QB EJ Manuel 15/24 221 yards 1 TD and 1 INTHB Chris THompson 7 carries for 39 yards
Great game dakota. Aside from the loss, it was a thrilling way to start my user games this season. Your 2 goal line stands (3 pts allowed) really earned you the W. Like I said after, I need to work on this offense so hopefully someday soon I'll have that time. Don't like the way my line is blocking but then again your team easily could have scored more points. Good luck in the ACC
#12 Kansas State - 20
#21 Georgia Tech - 14
A very defensive game from start to finish. The Yellow Jackets kicked off the points when the KSU kicker missed a long FG and the returnman blazed past the defenders (who I may add didn't even try). With 2 minutes left in the 1st quarter Hubert responded with a 52 yard rush to even up the score. Another defensive quarter ended with the Wildcats connecting on a FG to go up 10-7 at halftime. Around midway into the 3rd quarter the GT QB would miscalculate his pitch to the HB, the defender would scoop and score giving KSU a 17-7 lead. I admire how Coach Aaron came out right after the fumble and continued to option. He redeemed the fumble when his QB held onto the ball from 4 yards out and brought his team within 3 points. The rest of the game was more defense, but was finally capped off by a 25 FG from the KSU kicker to put this game to bed.
Great game aarondramp, the amount of times we both punted was crazy. Good luck the rest of the way.
Up next Kansas State will face Texas for their first road game.
C. Klein - 6/11, 71 yards
J. Hubert - 22 Att, 125 yards, 5.6 ypc, 1 TD
A. Pease - 4 Att, 75 yards
M. Williams - 3 Tackles, 1 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 FR-TD
Yeah, I just couldn't get the option going. When I no huddled in the 1st half it was because the Y button had a delayed reaction. I was just going to let the clock run down and take the delay of game. That's why I used a timeout to let you kick your field goal at the end of the first half. I felt bad about you burning a timeout for that.
On the last drive, I just couldn't get a stop. Those huge counter plays killed me. I knew they were coming a few times and just couldn't stop them.
Good game, though; I need to figure out if I can run the fleXbox One or not. I think if I had a QB to keep the defense honest, then it might be different. My QB missed some easy throws.
This blows! For you Big XII guys, Oklahoma has their 55 SPD QB returning kicks for them........
You should've saved this for when I told you that he's taken both KOs back to the 30 and is averaging 25.0 per return.
I'm going into the half tied 7-7 against OU and my game freezes!
Is there anyone on XBL right now that can verify that my game is tied?
I'm not but I believe you man
