    Saturday, September 1st, 2012 - Houston, TX
    The UCLA Bruins opened the season this week in Houston to take on the Owls of Rice. With both teams running a spread, pass first offense, the fireworks should have been plentiful, and boy were they.
    To start the game, on their opening drive, UCLA and Brett Hundley drove down the field nearly untouched to go up 7-0 early. Hundley would hit four different receivers, while Running Back Malcolm Jones would take a handoff on 3rd and Five 22 yards up the middle for a touchdown. Rice would get the ball back with decent field position, but finding themselves at 3rd and 12, Taylor McHargue would throw an interception to Patrick Larimore, with Larimore returning it for a touchdown. McHargue wouldn't be done shooting his team in the foot, with their next drive ending in another interception, this time to FS Tevin McDonald, leading off a UCLA drive to go up 21-0 with nearly 3 minutes left in the first quarter! With the game getting out of hand, McHargue decided to take it to the ground, after a quick completion to lead off the ensuing drive, McHargue would rush for 11, 12 and 9 yards to end up a little past midfield. A screen to Sam McGuffie for 24 yards would put them inside the Ten, eventually leading to Rice's first points of the day, 21-7 UCLA.
    So entering the second quarter, Rice with the ball, McHargue would go beast mode again, this time completing a pass to WR Andre Gautreaux for 51 yards, downed at the UCLA 8 yard line. A 10-yard run by McGuffie would put Rice within one score. A quick Bruin 3-and-out and a punt, would give Rice the ball again, this time with McHargue running three more consecutive times before he'd hit TE Luke Willson to get in UCLA territory. A counter by Sam McGuffie from 31 yards out would tie the ball game 21-21! Enter Bruin wideout Ricky Marvray, who off a 6 yard completion would break two tackles and run another 71 yards for a 77 yard touchdown regaining the lead UCLA once held handedly. In what would be a costly scramble, McHargue would miss the remainder of the half while nursing a bruised shoulder, Rice settling on that drive with a FG down 28-24. UCLA's first field goal of the afternoon would come right before half, at the break UCLA leading 31-24.
    Rice would receive the second half kickoff, and squander an oppurtunity to try and tie it up once again. Their mistake would be in punting to Shaquelle Evans, who returned their punt 88 yards for the score, ending the Rice threat for the remainder of the game, or so you'd think. McHargue, back in the game after putting a Dora the Explorer band-aid on his shoulder, would drive his Owls down to eventually run it in himself, putting the Rice Owls down 38-31. That would put Rice within shot of the upset, a place they never came close to after that point. Two passes from Brett Hundley late in the Third Quarter, and midway through the Fourth, would seal the victory for his Bruins 52-31, luckily escaping the upset and starting the season 1-0.
    UCLA 52 - 31 Rice
    Player of the Game -
    Shaquelle Evans: 6 receptions, 89 yards, 1 Receiving TD; 4 returns, 141 yards, 1 Return TD

    Highlights -
    Ricky Marvray's 77 yard reception for a touchdown


    Shaquelle Evans 88 yard punt return for a touchdown

    Seminole Defense Takes Over
    [​IMG]
    FSU - 41
    TOL - 17

    Florida State came out looking to prove to the nation that it was not an over-rated team and that it could handle its business against teams they should beat. After an early 7-7 tie, the Doak crowd started to rumble with reservations. These reservations were put to rest however, as the 'Noles scored the next 17 points en route to a 24-10 halftime lead. All 2 TDs came on LONG passes from quarterback EJ manuel. The Seminole receivers were able to get behind the Rocket defense all game long.

    Defensively, the line for Florida State controlled things, totalling 4 sacks and holding the rockets to -24 yards rushing. Rocket Quarterback Terrence Owens, when not running for his life, played rather well, throwing for nearly 300 yards and 2 TDs.

    The story of the game was Seminole running back Devontae Freeman. Freeman, who lost the position battle to Chris Thompson came in and absolutely dominated, carrying the ball 18 times for 153 yards and 2 TDs. Thompson however, could not get things going and ended up with -10 yards. Coach Jimbo Fisher was overheard talking to assistant coach Mike Stoops and said "I am a fucking idiot...", echoing the feelings of many a 'Nole supporter...

    With this win, the Seminoles get off to a 1-0 start and look forward to SMU next week.

    In the Trojans season opener things didn't go as smooth as planned. Hawaii would run the ball all over USC and play solid defense throughout the entire game. It wasn;t what we expected from a team that's not suppose to be that great they played a very solid game and gave us a run for our money. In the end we came out on top but not feeling good about our performance. We have got to step things up and play smarter to be able to even think about competing in this great conference. With teams like Oregon, Utah, UCLA, Oregon St. and Stanford in this conference it will be no easy task to get to the national title game. Next week we travel all the way to New York to take on the Syracuse Orangemen and hope to improve by then.

    Miami shows Its Resolve in Comeback Victory

    The game started off looking like it was going to be a Miami beatdown as QB Ryan Williams started 6-6 for 52 yards and capped off the opening drive with a TD run. The game was anything but. Both teams battled hard the first quarter but it was clear that BC had taken back the momentum at the end of the first which finished 7-0. In the 2nd BC scored two times off a FG and a TD both on long drives by The Eagles where the Miami defense was outclassed. QB Ryan Williams responded right before half with about 45 seconds left and found Allen Hurns on a 68 yard strike , but BC awsnered with 6 seconds left on a 50 yard strike of thier own to hold onto the lead headed into halftime 17-14 BC.

    In the third quarter the Miami defense played much much better but still allowed a 61 yard run and the miami offense didnt sniff the endzone thanks to a couple fumbles. Boston College was up 24-14 at the start of the 4th when Coach Golden gathered his team before sending them on the field, he told them to relax, and go play like Miami Hurricanes. The message seemed to hit home as they did just that. The defense was swarming all over the field and the offense was slinging the ball around surgically cutting apart the eagles. A 30 yard TD pass with 5:38 left made it 24-21, then 2 minutes later Mike James Scored on a 7 yard run to take the 27-24 lead. BC still had fight left in them and got into th redzone with about a minute and a half left. BC QB Chase Rettig rolled out to his left out of the shotgun where he was layed out by backup OLB Tyrone Cornelius and was knocked out of the game, Miami saw its opportunity with a new QB coming into the game and on the very next play CB Brandon McGee intercepted the ball as it went across the middle and ran it all the way back 85 yards for a TD and sealed the game.

    POTG - QB Ryan Williams 19-26 266 yards 2 TDs 1 Rushing TD and CB Brandon McGee 5 Tkl , 1 TFL , 2 INTs

    Carolina Blues: Heels Face Questions Following Opening Loss
    [​IMG]

    1st year Head Coach Larry Fedora and the UNC Tar Heels had high hopes coming into this season, but knew there would be growing pains as they implemented new systems on offense and defense. At Southern Miss, Fedora's high flying spread attacks and 4-2-5 base defenses were incredibly successful.

    On Sunday, however, the defense looked porous as they surrounded 31 points in an opening loss to Boise State. The game was back and forth for quite some time, as the Heels held onto the lead going into the half 14-10. As the second half moved on, the Heels found themselves trailing 24-21. As they drove into Boise territory, Bryn Renner threw a costly interception that was returned down to the UNC 6. Moments later, Boise took a 31-21 lead with 1:30 remaining. On a desperate attempt downfield, Renner threw a second INT late.

    Overall, Renner looked polished, as the offense really wasn't the issue. The Heels are going to have to sure up that defense somehow, and try to get Giovanni Bernard the ball a bit more if they wish to compete this season. There are rumors ini the locker room that Fedora is considering a switch back to UNC's previous 4-3, but those have yet to be confirmed.

    Rain, Rain Go Away!
    It was a complete down pour a Veteran's Memorial Stadium in Troy, Alabama. Knowing that nothing would get down in the air both defenses keyed in on the run and punished the running backs. By the time the game was over 4 RBs went down with injuries, including OSU starter Malcolm Agnew, who not come back into the game. When either team tried to throw, the ball would either be way off target or the WRs would slip and by the time they recovered the QB would be sacked. Nothing but defense in the first half which lead to a 0-0 tie.​
    OSU would receive the ball and stuck with the run hoping they could tire out the Trojan defense, it worked. After pounding the rock OSU got the match up they wanted, a one on one with their OLB against the slot man Jordan Bishoph. QB Sean Mannion would hit him in stride and it was off to the races for a 37 yard TD. With another promising drive by Troy the Beaver defense would cause its first takeaway with an INT. Star CB Jordan Poyer read the curl route, stepped in front, picked it off and took it to midfield. With a good run game there needs to be times where you just go all out with a PA pass. The FS would bit and WR Markus Wheaton would make him pay. Mannion threw a beautiful pass over the top before getting hit for a 60 yard TD. At this point OSU was rolling into the 4th Quarter up 14-0.​
    The final quarter would showcase more offensive blunders for Troy and some great 4th down stands by OSU's defense. K Trevor Romaine would score 6 of his 9 points from 35 and 42 yards out. With the game out of reach and Troy getting desperate OSU would get one more score in with their 3rd string running back, Jordan Jenkins. Beavers would claim their first victim with a shutout but next week will not be so easy. Oregon State hosts one of the best rushing attacks in the nation the Wisconsin Badgers.​
    FINAL SCORE: 27-0
    PLAYER OF THE GAME: K Trevor Romaine- 2/2 FG, 42 yard long, 3/3 XPT, 9 PTs

    Oregon dominant in home opener over Arkansas State
    36-7


    The Oregon Ducks looked to kick off the new seasons by packing their bags and heading down to Tallahassee for what was sure to be a classic against the Noles and coach Mike E , however homeland security & the TSA turned the Ducks away at the tarmac and sent them home to beat up on Arkansas State. :mad:


    The Ducks would unleash all of their duckly anger agains the lowly wolves ( I thinks that is the mascot ) in this one to the tune of a 36-7 blow out. This one was never really in question as Oregon raced out to a 17-0 lead in the first half and would have remained that way had the oregon secondary missed an assignment in the red zone leading to a TD pass , making it 17-7 at halftime.

    In the second half the defense made a few adjustments and shut down Arkansas State ,as well as scoring a safety to boot. With the game well in hand early in the forth quarter the Ducks put in the second units for both offense and defense to get some younger players some work.

    Oregon came into this game hoping to continue to improve on running the ball , and that task was handled by committee approach as they ran for 162 yards on 27 carries as a team , with QB Brian Bennett leading the way with 75 yards. Bennett also had a stellar day throwing the rock as well , going 12-19 233yards 3 TD on the day , the only blemish was two INT thrown to Ark State FS Sterling Young , both however were more about Young's great skills than Bennett's bad throws.

    Play of the Game
    This play here was a 51 yard bomb late in the 3rd quarter to seal the game and get the second teamers some PT ​






    Stats :

    Oregon total yards : 409
    Ark State total yards : 235

    Leaders :
    ORG - B. Bennett - 233 yards passing 3 TD , 75 yards rushing
    ORG- R. Vaugn - 2 rec 95 yards 2 TD
