Please complete by November 2, 2010 7:00 a.m. EST
Toledo avenges last years loss to Iowa. Game started off with a bang. Page takes opening kickoff 98yds for a touchdown to give Toledo 7-0 lead. The rockets would get ball back and page would score from 10yds out to give toledo a 14-0 lead. a 3 and out and a Walker 7yd run Toledo has a 21-0 lead. Hawkeyes would score 2 unanswered tds and make it 21-14. Toledo would add a fg as time expired and take a 24-14 lead into halftime against the #5 team in the nation on the road. Well Iowa had other plans they would score 14 unanswered and take a 28-24 lead. The rockets would hold their composure and score from 4yds out on the nxt drive and take the lead back 31-38. 4th quarter Toledo would score 14 more unanswered points giving them a 45-28 lead with 1:54 to go Iowa would score with 17 seconds left making the score 45-35. Toledo recovers onside kick and takes knee to seal victory
Great...and I got to play Toledo this year, too.
Yeah it was amazing i was shocked to take opening kick for 6 then to jump out to a 21-0 lead. They take lead and we dominate again was real nice to take out #5 team in the nation and 2nd big ten team in a row
That's an amazing win. Believe me, there is nothing more I would love than for ND to get takin to the woodshed like my Owls. After playing Pitt, I didn't think any of our teams could possibly defeat a run heavy team, despite who was on the sticks. Nice win.
my team could only dream
Thanks lol. Wegher ran 12times for 107yards one run being 71yds. They fell down so quick they had abandon the run. To beat the Hawkeyes in Iowa City is a great feeling. Next week i face the option attack of Navy so if my defense can handle the option going to be a nice start to the season
The #5 team! I second Radio's props. I'm just learning how to beat team in the triple digits, hoping to knock off someone in the double digits, and you're housing top ten teams on the road. Kudos ND.
So the madness continues for Dat U. The Redhawks travel south to face the Ragun Cajuns of Lafayette. It take less than 5 minutes for the big bubble of confidence to be ruptured. The Cajuns receive and start running no huddle, even on passes out of bounds. Miami was not ready and got pushed back, back, back until the U of La-L scores 7-0. Miami wants to answer, so we begin riding the big back of last week's hero, John Coltraine. But the freshman sensation would suffer a high ankle sprain on his third carry and will be lost for another week. QB Zac Dysert was forced to the sideline when he was hit after a pass and bruised his sternum. His replacement tried one pass, but it was picked by a DE spy. Cajuns get the ball inside their 30 and score again. Here we go again....
So what do the good guys do? They break out their other freshman sensation, Dougie Fresh. Fresh starts the party by torching the ULL defense for 193 yards and a TD. Dysert takes enough pain meds to kill a large dog, and suits back up. He leads them to 31 unanswered points, with TDs to senior Andrew Cruise, and freshmen Jack Spade and O'Shea Jackson, to put the game out of reach. The Cajuns scored twice in the fourth to make it respectable, but their deficit was too big to overcome. Miami recovered the late onsides kick, and they get their first ever two-win season.
Next week we host New Mexico State. Lou Holtz says they play much better than their record indicates, and might be a sleeper for National Champion. Following that challenge, we go on the road to face Cincy. We are enjoying it while we can!
Congrats on your 2-0 start
NIU goes to 2-0 as well after holding off a game Army team. Army seemed to convert 3rd and long all day long to stay in the game. A close game start to finish with NIU kicking the game winning FG from 27 yards as time expired.
The man who couldn't kick XP's last year is now winning games with the kicking game. Nice!
Big news about to come from Happy Valley...
TEMPLE TAKES DOWN PSU 24-14
The Temple Owls take down one of their big brothers in Happy Valley. The Owls played the game of their life on the defensive side of the ball holding PSU to just 164 yards of offense. Owl Soph QB Cotton finally showed the promise Temple fans had been talking about since his Penn High School days. Cotton carved up the PSU secondary with a stat line of 13-19, 233 yds, 0TD's but 0INT's. He also broke a few nice runs finishing with 48 yards on 10 carries.
SR stud HB Pierce left the game on the 2nd play of the 3rd qtr but still managed 46 yards and 1TD. His backup Ross gained 41 yards and 2TD's and was named POG by EA, though it was clearly Cotton in the spotlight.
The play of the game goes to unheralded TE recruit K. Stephens. After taking a 10-7 lead on the last play of the 1st half, the Owls get the ball to begin the 2nd half. On its first play, Cotton stares down a mighty blitz to fing his freshman TE wide open for a 70 yard gain down to the PSU 9. Pierce would leave the game on the next play, but Ross would punch in the TD two plays later for a 17-7 lead. Thats all the Temple D would need as PSU can only muster a last minute hurry up TD.
Nice win there big ten getting alot of loses to the Mac
The Big Ten fears the MAC like the Socialists fear "the wave" that is coming tomorrow.
You mean, The Flush.
Oh! And mad props to the Commish for calling the breakout game by my frosh RB. "Teach me how to Dougie" will be rocking at Dat U next week!
A bit of bad news for NIU...forgot to mention they lose the starting RB for 3 weeks with a broken finger...Could not run with the back up after he got hurt
Here comes the wide open passing attack for 3 weeks
