    2011 Week 3
    UAB – 24
    #1 Alabama - 21​


    Tuscaloosa, AL – The UAB Blazers pull off the biggest upset of the season thus far, knocking off the number one ranked Crimson Tide 24-21 Saturday in Tuscaloosa. Blazer FB Chris Dicks scored on a 1 yard dive with 11 seconds to play in the 4th, capping an improbable 99 yard drive to give UAB the lead and ultimately the victory. Bama coach Nick Saban is probably kicking himself for not taking a chip shot FG that would have given the Tide a 24-17 lead with 4 minutes left in the game. Instead, the offense took the field on a 4th and goal from the one. UAB All American DT Elliot Henigan was able to bust through the line, bringing down Trent Richardson just short of the goal line. The Blazers took over and marched down the field for the winning score, taking most of the remaining clock in doing so.

    Check the Dynasty Wire for Trent Richardson’s TD runs. On one of them he gave my safety a piggy back ride for about 10 yards into the endzone! The guys is good!

    #21 Western Michigan 35
    Illinois 28

    Starting RB Aaron Winchester and starting QB Alex Carder didn't make it past the 2nd quarter but WMU held on to win a wild one in Champaign.

    Western Michigan looked to be in control early in the 4th up 28-14 but then things got a little crazy. Illinois scored with 3:12 left on a 11 yard TD pass to narrow the gap to 28-21 but the Bronco ground game was effective enough that Coach Nikpin wasn't to worried. After a quick 1st down and then forcing Illinois to use two of their time outs the Broncos were forced to punt from midfield.

    With Illinois pinned at their own 3 and only 1:54 remaining things looked bleak but Jacob Charest quickly dissected the Bronco defense completing 6 passes and scoring with 1:08 on a TD pass to HB Jason Ford. Backup Freshmen QB Mike Perish was forced to air it out something the coaches were hesitant about doing all game. He quickly found Alex Carden's favorite target WR Robert Arnheim for gains of 18 and 21 before hitting Jordan Schaffer for 24 yards and just like that the Broncos were in Field Goal range at the Illini 20 yard line. With the intention of just running the clock out the Broncos ran a sweep left to try to center the Field Goal but backup HB Antoin Scriven saw daylight and raced left towards the sideline and looked like he had the corner and a game clinching TD. He was met at the 5 yardline by a host of Illini defenders but lunged forward to try to break the tackle and was stripped. The Illini RE Whitney Mercilus made a great hustle play scooping the ball but ran out of bounds at the 1 yard line with :45 left on the clock.

    All was not lost for WMU as they still felt like they had outplayed Illinois and had overtime to look forward to. The Illini came out and ran the ball 3 times but picked up a first down on the 3rd run. That's where things got interesting as they immediately went into no huddle mode. They threw one pass incomplete, the next pass was off my safeties hands and the third ended the game. Charest dropped back and was looking right, but he found a man on the left side that forced him to throw across his body while my DE came free to land a crushing blow. The ball hung in the air forever, nickel corner Raheam Buxton ran over and made a leaping interception while dime corner Jermaine Vereen crushed the WR allowing Buxton to scamper in for a 25 yard TD putting the game away.

    Coach Nikpin is just happy to survive without two of his star players and looks forward to opening conference play next week with UAB.

    I uploaded 3 highlights including the game winning pick six, a nice catch and run by a Clemson WR and the fumble by Scriven. Week 3 Highlights

    For the 2nd year in a row, Kent State took Army behind the woodshed. This time it was a 28-3 drumming as Army struggled to move the ball against a stout Golden Flash defense led by freshman middle linebacker Adam Collins and his 8 tackles. After the game, Collins was quite excited and informed the media that he was going to celebrate in his own way after the victory in the conference opener.

    "Hell yeah baby. We beat dem bitches to da ground. Dem niggas don't know bout da U! (of Kent St). We like a brick wall son. We partyin tonight baby. We got some hyp and hennessey and we fuckin white women tonight!" Collins said.

    As strong as the defense was, the MVP has to go to Kent State's senior running back JacQuise Terry. The talented ball-carrier racked 182 yards and three touchdowns on the ground as Army had no answer for him.

    Texas A&M 35, Arkansas State 24

    Arkansas State had quite the comeback on Saturday, but forgot to show up for the 2nd half. After Texas A&M looked unstoppable after the first quarter, and took a 21-0 lead early in the second, the Red Wolves never gave up.

    A furious rally started with an interception that led to an easy score, and then another interception set up another quick score. Before you knew it, the Red Wolves had scored 24 straight points that gave them the lead at half 24-21. The game that looked like a blowout was now interesting.

    Unfortunately Texas A&M awoke from their coma and played a solid second half, taking the lead in the 3rd quarter on a 20-yard TD run by Cyrus Gray. Tommy Dorman, who threw 2 INTs in the first half, was solid in the second half making no mistakes. The A&M defense shut down the Red Wolves offense, which lit it up in the first half.

    A fourth quarter interception that was returned 101 yards for a TD by Trent Hunter sealed the game for the Aggies, who needed this victory in a bad way. The Red Wolves drop to 1-2, despite putting on a strong showing against a superior team.​

    Boise - Kellen Moore may be rated 99's across the board in the pertinent QB categories, but somebody forgot to tell the Vandal defense that.

    Again it was the Idaho defense that led the charge, this time with 2 defensive touchdowns after last week's 3 TD effort. That was against rival Washington State in the Battle for the Palouse.

    In this week's Battle for Idaho against the hated Boise State Broncos, the Vandal defense forced 5 turnovers, scored 2 touchdowns, and knocked QB Kellen Moore down all day.
    Similar to last week, the Vandals fell behind early, giving up a Bronco touchdown on their opening possession. After trading punts for the rest of the first quarter, the Vandals were able to kick a field goal early in the second to pull within 4. An interception gave the Vandals great field position, and Sr QB Bryan Reader was able to find a wide open Randall Hatchett for an 11 yard touchdown strike to put the Vandals up 10-3.

    When the Vandals forced a Bronco punt, they took over on their own 39 yard-line with a minute left before halftime. After being sacked on first down, the Vandals decided to be content with running the clock out and heading to halftime. The mindset changed when Boise came out of the huddle and stacked the box against a called draw play. The Vandals quickly checked out of the draw play and into a deep pass. True to their presentation, the Broncos brought the house and hit Reader just as he had spotted WR Aurmani Johnson several steps ahead of his defender. The ball floated off path, but Johnson was able to track under it, snatch it out of the air, and outrun his beaten Bronco defender into the endzone for the 67-yard touchdown with just seconds left in the first half.

    The two offensive touchdowns would be all the Vandals needed, as their defense took control against a flustered Boise State offense in the second half.

    On the opening possession of the 3rd quarter, Boise ran a Jet sweep. As he tried to turn the corner, the Bronco ballcarrier was stripped and the ball was snatched up by a Vandal defender. As he was being flung to the ground, however, a Boise State lineman was able to strip the ball out again. This time, the Vandal safety was there to scoop it up and rumble 18 yards into the endzone for the touchdown.

    24-7 Vandals.

    After some more boring defense and offensive futility, Boise QB Kellen Moore was rocked on a corner blitz just as he attempted a throw. The ball went horribly off target and appeared to be falling safely to the ground when Idaho Sr LB Simon Savili appeared from nowhere and intercepted the ball just inches from the ground (the play would be reviewed to confirm the actual catch) and raced 55 yards to the endzone to put the Vandals even further ahead bby a score of 31-7.

    In the 4th quarter, Idaho was able to kick a field goal before a pick 6 by the 2nd team Vandal offense resulted in a final score of 34-14 Idaho.

    Idaho climbs to 2-1, while #6 Boise suffers their first loss of the season and drops to 2-1, their national title hopes all but eliminated by the Vandals yet again.

    Postgame............

    "I enjoy playing here. It's one of the rare places we go and can expect a win. Seriously, if anybody else in our conference would like to give their program a boost, this team is consistently overrated because they beat a bunch of terrible teams every year. They have a few good players, but for playing a prestigious Top 5 team, this is as easy as it could get. I hope they don't chicken out of the schedule like their AD has mentioned. Maybe if they could win a rivalry game, they'd have a bit of an inebriated culture, too." - Coach CenTechsan

    Replays are in dynastywire. There were some fun plays and the double fumble TD play was nuts.
