    Buckeyes Dominate in Opener, 59-7
    The no. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes rolled over Buffalo in their season opener for a 59-7 victory. The Buckeyes were led by Heisman hopeful Braxton Miller, as the junior quarterback accounted for more than 300 yards and scored 3 touchdowns in the route. Miller was extremely efficient, completing 16-of-18 passes in three quarters of action before being pulled at the start of the fourth quarter.

    After Ohio State scored on its first drive it looked as if Buffalo would answer with a score of its own. But as the Bulls were charging toward OSU's endzone, hard-hitting safety Christian Bryant upended the opposing quarterback while knocking the ball loose. Buffalo would not cross the 50 yard line again, save for their scoring drive late in the fourth quarter against the OSU second string.

    As the Silver Bullets held strong, Ohio State's offensive line bullied the Bulls in the trenches. In all Ohio State ran for 303 yards as seven different Buckeyes shared the 46 carries.

    The 106,000 fans inside the Horseshoe were also provided with a glimpse of the future. Several of the Buckeyes star studded 2013 freshmen class saw game action, and a few proved that they are ready to contribute immediately. WR Jalin Marshall returned a punt for a touchdown toward the end of the first half, igniting Ohio Stadium and leaving little doubt as to who the victor would be. Safety Vonn Bell scored the first defensive touchdown for Ohio State on the season, jumping in front of a forced slant route and blazing by the opposition for six. Athlete Dontre Wilson and tailback Ezekiel Elliot also showed promise with the touches they received.

    Next week the Buckeyes host San Diego State in what should be a tougher contest.

    Stanford beats San Jose State 24-10 in week one and is RTA.

    Cardinal QB Hogan did not pass the ball well, throwing two (2) early picks and completing less than half of his passes. HB Wilkerson had a successful day running the ball, scoring three (3) touchdowns on thirty (30) carries. Stanford's defense succeeded in getting their offense back on the field when it counted most, forcing two (2) interceptions of their own.

    TROJANS BRING OFFENSIVE WEAPONS TO HAWAII IN 35-3 BLOWOUT

    USC 7 14 14 0 35
    Hawaii 0 3 0 0 3

    Player of the Game: QB Max Browne - 14/20 (70%), 194 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT

    The Trojans traveled to Hawaii expecting clear skies, sunshine and a USC victory. A heavy and persistent downpour all weekend on the Big Island dashed two of USC's hopes, but an all-around high-powered offensive performance led by freshmen QB Max Browne and RB Ty Isaac secured a 35-3 victory to kick off the 2013 season.

    After both teams turned it over on their opening drives, the Trojans put up their first score of the year when Ty Isaac shuffled for a 9-yard run on a third-down draw play to give USC the early lead. After shaking off two early interceptions, Max Browne connected for two touchdown strikes in the second quarter to run the score up to 21-3 at half after the Warriors hit a 30-yd field goal.

    The lead was run up to 28-3 in the third quarter when Browne connected for his most brilliant play of the day, a 42-yard strike down the sideline to a streaking WR Marqise Lee for a Trojan touchdown. Backup QB Max Wittek scored the Trojans' final touchdown in the third quarter when he scrambled for an 8-yard TD run and a 35-3 lead.

    Seven Trojans carried the ball out of the backfield in a well-balanced run game in the victory. RB Silas Redd led the way with 13 carries and 86 yards, while freshman RB Ty Isaac toted the rock for 41 yards and a score on 10 carries. Freshman RB Justin Davis also saw action, carrying the ball five times for 44 yards, including a 21-yard effort in which he plowed a defender and juked two more for the longest run of the day for USC.

    The USC defense put all questions about its effectiveness aside, holding Hawaii to just 192 yards and seven first downs. The Trojans also forced two fumbles in the victory.

    With their mini-vacation to Hawaii out of the way, the Trojans are preparing for their home opener next week against Wazzu.

    Hackenburg and Browne both looked solid in their openers. Looks like there will be plenty of freshmen vying for freshman of the year honors in CL this season

    Zwinak, Lynch lead Penn State to a 19-17 victory over Syracuse

    A resilient Nittany Lion squad needed every second to beat the dark horse Orangemen. Placekicker Sam Ficken went 4/4 on fieldgoals, including a 28 yarder from the right hash as time expired, sending his teammates into a frenzy as they rushed the Metlife© Stadium field to celebrate. Penn State entered half time with a solid 13-3 lead, thanks to some tremendous game management from freshman starter Christian Hackenberg, completing 77% of his passes for 218 yards.

    Late in the third quarter while still holding a 13-3 lead, Hackenberg dropped back for a pass on 2nd and 8, but fumbled the ball after being hammered by Syracuse end Trevon Trejo. Jay Bromley scooped up the ball, held his balance, and rumbled down the field for a 51 yard score to cut the deficit to three. Trejo would end up with three of the seven sacks on the young Penn State quarterback, a key element to how this game stayed so close. Following the fumble return TD, the Nittany Lion offense continued their ways, driving methodically down the field into the redzone, yet failing to punch it in for seven. They settled for another field goal, bumping their lead to 6.

    With just under five minutes remaining, Syracuse was in prime position to set things their way. The offense had looked good, if not great at times throughout the game, but hadn't found the endzone yet. Quarterback Charlie Loeb showed great poise in this drive, converting the only Orange third down on a 3rd and long to put his team into a position to take the lead. Driving all the way down to the five, they finally met resistance, as stingy senior linebacker Glenn Carson stuffed two plays, forcing a 4th and goal from the nine. The ball was hiked, and Loeb was flushed out of the pocket almost immediately, and desperately threw the ball towards the back of the endzone. Almost out of nowhere, Prince Tyson Gulley picked the ball out of the air, and tiptoed in bounds for the lead assuming score with just over two minutes remaining.

    Penn State saved their best for last, and looked rather unstoppable on the ground, thanks to some heady running by freshman tailback Akeel Lynch. Using a no-huddle strategy, Zwinak and Lynch hacked and slashed their way up field, and with just one second left, Head coach Jbek used the only time out he would use the whole game. Sam Ficken strolled on to the field with his special teams unit, and with a perfect three for three under his belt already, he seemed cool and collected as he set stance to kick an easy 28 yarder. He nailed it, and now Nittany Lion fans can breath a sigh of relief.


    Game notes:

    =Freshman Quarterback Christian Hackenberg completed 17 of 22 passes for 218 yards, 0 TD's and 0 Interceptions

    =Junior Tailback Zach Zwinak continued where he left off last season, toting the rock for 126 yards on 23 carries and one score.

    =Sophomore Tightend Kyle Carter caught six passes for 77 yards.

    =Junior reciever Allen Robinson caught six passes for 81 yards.

    =Freshman Tailback Akeel Lynch rushed for 50 yards on eight carries.

    =Junior back Bill Belton suffered a mild concussion in the third quarter.

    =Senior safety Malcolm Willis had the teams lone interception, as well as a team high six tackles.

    =Senior linebacker Mike Hull finished with five tackles and two sacks.



    Next week, Penn State (1-0) will host Eastern Michigan (0-0)

    Gotta work on that red zone offense Jbek! ;)

    I looked at the stats thinking you should have killed them. Then I noticed the defensive TD and the 4 field goals. Syracuse is a pretty solid team. Hopefully you can get a few more TDs on the board against EMU.

    Yeah, this game was a few plays away from being a route. I'll take the 100% redzone efficiency, but I'm gonna need to punch some TD tickets instead of FG's come Big Ten Season!

    I'm not too worried about EMU though, pretty sure they are like a 64 overall... perfect chance to pile up the stats for that Coach XP too :greedy:

    This season will be all about building confidence in the young Hackenberg. A strong running game will be key in allowing him to feel a sense of comfort and control. Thankfully I have a solid stable in Zwinak, Belton, and Lynch (who showed flashes of brilliance against Syracuse). I'm sort of limiting the passing game these first few games, not too many down field strikes quite yet. But the kid's got an arm, let me tell you.

    LSU goes down in a close battle 32-31 vs TCU.

    This first game of the season was shown for the Tigers nothing going there. LSU went down 10-0 at the start of the 2nd quarter. Then quickly rallied back before the half before taking a one point lead at half 13-14. Slowly wen LSU was in the driver seat TCU struck back with revenge and boy its was not fun. Ending the 3rd quarter 19-21 Tigers was still in the driver seat, but little did they know what was about to happen in the 4th. TCU scored two touchdowns including a last minute 11 yard pass to RB Greene from QB Pachall to finish the Tigers hope of winning this opening season kick-off game.

    Tough losses for MrWitness36 and macc24usc but I'm loving that the CPU can compete this year! Jbek and CJTHA1 were also taken down to the wire. Winning a championship will be tougher than ever this year

    Texas A&M cruises in opener against the Rice Owls
    Johnny Manziel seemed a bit sluggish in warmups and threw up before the game. He said it was just "nerves" due to the high expectations for the reigning Heisman trophy winner. But when the game began, all "nerves" disappeared as was apparent by Texas A&M's first offensive play. Manziel had a 73 yard scamper before was taken down by the shoestring tackle of Rices top defender, free safety Dominique Anderson just short of the end zone. Starting half back Ben Malena pounded the ball into the end zone for the first score of the game. ​
    It was all downhill from there. Rice had some success on the ground but starting QB Taylor McHargue started 0 for 7 which led to a lot of short possessions in the first half. The Aggies were content to pound away at the Rice defense with all 4 half backs getting carries and Johnny Manziel only passing when necessary. Ben Malena shouldered most of the load, barreling ahead for 116 yards on 18 carries with 4 TDs. He took a seat at halftime and let his trio of Sophomore backups take over. Johnny Football collected high fives after the third quarter and let RS Freshman Matt Davis take it home. ​
    Rice mounted their lone scoring drive in the 3rd quarter getting 32 yard field goal but aTm ran left, right, and up the middle for the rest of the game, giving them only one more drive at the end of the 4th against the backups which fell short.​
    The team ran for a solid 307 yards, spreading the ball between 7 runners. All in all a solid start to the season. Next up UNLV comes to town. Coach Hopp has reminded Johnny that this is a home game and he does NOT get to go gambling before the game.​
    STATS​
    Johnny Manziel: 15/17 for 156 yards, 5 rushes for 93 yards​
    Ben Malena: 18 carries for 118 and 4 TDs​
    Mike Evans: 5 receptions for 60 yards​

    UTSA SHOCKS THE WORLD, KNOCKS OFF #6 OREGON​
    Haaa but for real, the Ducks twerked the Roadrunners en route to a 63-17 victory.​

    [​IMG] 17 63 [​IMG]

    Oregon jumped out to an early 21-0 lead, thanks in part to the running of QB Marcus Mariota and HB De'Anthony "Black Mamba" Thomas. For the first quarter and a half, the Oregon defense dominated the UTSA offense, not allowing them to cross midfield. Then, halfway through the second quarter, the Roadrunner starting quarterback was knocked out of the game with a concussion, forcing UTSA to bring in its second stringer. This seemed to breath new life into their rushing and passing attack, and made things a little annoying for the Oregon D. With that being said, this one was over very quickly, and the second team offense and defense saw the field the entire fourth quarter.

    The real story of this one was the play of De'Anthony Thomas. While neither his rushing nor receiving statistics seemed overwhelming (8 carries, 72 yards, TD, 2 catches, 36 yards), his play on special teams is what made headlines. The third quarter saw DAT take not one, but two kickoffs to the house. On both, he burst through the hole, broke a tackle, and cruised into the endzone. He racked up 247 kick return yards and 60 punt return yards, putting his overall game total at 421 yards, in addition to 3 TDs. The kid is the real deal and his speed is unmatched.

    Notable Oregon Stats:

    QB Marcus Mariota - 10-12, 174 yards, 2 TD, 8 carries, 123 yards, 3 TD

    HB Byron Marshall - 3 carries, 93 yards, TD

    WR Bralon Addison - 3 catches, 46 yards, 2 TD
