    Week #1: Game Summaries


    Georgia Tech 57
    Memphis 28

    GT unleashed a fierce rushing attack upon the Tigers racking up over 300 yds of rushing offense. Nesbitt & Dwyer both had huge gains on the field. Defensively GT struggled to get Memphis Offense off the field at times and GT will need to make some minor adjustments going into their 1st ACC match up with Clemson (DrunkenSoldier88). Clemson comes to town in Week 2, and there bringing a potent offense that herald's star tailback CJ Spiller.

    Wolverine Winner

    For the first time in 3 seasons the Michigan Wolverines have won their season opener. The boys from Ann Arbor had to overcome a slow start, they were down 13-3 in the 2nd, and a herculean effort by WMU WR J.White who racked up 232 yds and 3 TD on 7 catches. True freshmen QB Tate Forcier struggled early on, but progressed as the game went on in what was hopefully a sign of things to come from the young signal caller. After being up 17-16 at the half, the Wolverines really took over in the second half, outscoring the Broncos 28-7 to win the game 45-23. A 59 yard INT TD return by Donovan Warren and a 90 yard kickoff return TD by Terrence Robinson keyed the second half dismantling. The kids head down to Tuscaloosa next week to take on smace and his Bama boys in a matchup of 2 perennial powers.

    Key Players:

    MICH QB T.Forcier: 16-26, 256 yds 1 TD, 3 INT 9 att 52 yds 2 TD
    MICH RB B.Minor: 17 att 82 yds, 3 rec, 36 yds, 1 TD

    Ole Miss @ Iowa

    [​IMG] vs. [​IMG]



    It was a mild clear evening in Iowa City, Iowa and there was an electric atmosphere all around historical Kinnick Stadium. For tonight was the first game of the year. This was no ordinary opening season game for either team. This game pitted the speed of the SEC V.S. the power of the Big Ten in number 11 Ole Miss and the 22 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes.​

    The game started with Ole Miss winning the coin toss and decided to defer to the second half. Iowa than got the ball and stalled on their first drive and were forced to punt to the Rebels. The Rebels first possession was a long sustained drive in which they mostly pounded the ball at the Iowa defense. It was finally capped off with a four yard run by Enrique Davies. This also ended the first quarter with Ole Miss leading 7-0
    To start the second quarter the pressure was all on the Hawkeyes. The pressure was not handled well by Stanzi as he threw a pick on the second play. This left Ole Miss with great field position and a chance to really build an early lead against Iowa. Than on Ole Miss third play the Iowa defense stepped up huge when SS Tyler Sash forced a fumble and the Hawkeyes were all over it like flies to a root beer float. After a couple of Hawkeye first downs the offense stalled, but this time in field goal range where Ryan Donahue knocked in a 46 yarder making the score 7-3. Now it was time to see if the Rebels could put that fumble behind them and respond to Iowa’s field goal. However the Iowa defense had other things in mind as they came on to the field eager to get the offense the ball back. The shut down the Rebel offense on three straight plays and forced them to punt. When the Iowa offense took the field they had no plans in waiting around as they scored on their second play with a 68 yard screen pass to wide out Trey Storss. This made gave Iowa ten unanswered points and made the score 10-7. The Hawkeyes and the Rebels traded possessions and stalled out the rest of the first half. As the Hawkeyes exited the field at half time the gentlemen clapped and the children cheered for the home team.​
    The Rebels received the ball to start the third quarter and where in desperate need for their offense to show some life. After multiple third down conversions the Rebels found themselves in Iowa territory. The drive was than capped off with a 25 yard strike from Jevan Sneed to wide out Shay Hodge. This pushed the Rebels back into the lead at 14-10. The Iowa offense got the ball back, but this a time a more fired up Rebel was defense was waiting for them as they forced Iowa to go three plays in out. The Rebels had another long physical drive pounding the ball with both running backs. They finally punched one in with a four yard fun from running back Brandon Bolden. This run also ended the third quarter and gave the Rebels a 21 to 10 lead.​
    As the fourth quarter started the Iowa offense need points and needed them in a hurry, but where stalled on their first drive and forced to punt. This gave the Rebels a chance to eat up some of that valuable clock. After a few first downs Ole Miss found themselves back in Iowa territory. Than the Iowa defense came up huge for the second time today when defensive end Adrian Clayborn forced a fumbled and all big ten corner back Amari Spievey returned it 55 yards for a Hawkeye touchdown pushing the score to 21 to 16. Iowa elected to go for two to make it a field goal game, but were stopped on the goal line. Ole Miss came back onto the field knowing it had to waste as much time as possible and at least get a field goal to make it an eight point game. After a long drive pounding drive the Rebels found themselves eight yards away from a touchdown and securing a hard fought win. Than on third down Jevan Sneed hooked up with fullback Andy Hartman on a eight yard play action pass. Making the score 28-16 and givig Ole Miss its first win of the season.​
