    Freshman wideouts continue to shine as Okie State blows past West Virginia 52-20.

    Zac Butler and Matt Russell showed just how deadly they can be this week against the Mountaineers. Both receivers recorded over 100 yards receiving. Butler found the endzone twice and Russell once. It wasn't all easy breezy though, Butler had 4 drops including one on the opening play of the game which would have been a touchdown. However, despite the temporary lack of focus, Clint Chelf kept throwing it Zac's way. "Zac and Matt are both amazing players. You see them do things that make you say 'wow, he's only a freshman?'" Chelf chuckled while addding, "Then there's plays where their inexperience shows, but as long as they keep working hard and move on to the next play, I'll keep throwing it to them."

    The Big XII opener looked as though it would be a shoot out until the very end. However, the outcome was a lopsided, crushing win for the Cowboys. The second half dominace continued this week as Oklahoma State out scored the Mountaineers 28-7 after halftime, including a 21-0 fourth quarter. The Cowboys have dominated the fourth quarter in their first two games, 42-0.

    Expect another blowout next week as the Cowboys host FCS challenger Southeasten Louisiana.

    UVA Demolishes the poor UTSA Roadrunners 61-10

    Ouch! This game must have hurt pretty bad for UTSA as they lost by a stunning 51 points. Coming into the game UVA only beat WKU by 11. 11! They wanted to improve on that performance, and they certainly did! Phillip Sims was chucking the ball all over the field and Kevin Parks was running the ball all over the field. The UVA offense could seriously not be stopped. So when it was over UVA came out on top 61-10. Next up is our first real test vs. Maryland.

    28 4th quarter points, and 4 turnovers, leads to the first loss of the season, and first of new coach Casey Huskey's carreer. As Miami takes advantage of the mistakes beating SC 45-13. Dylan Thompson had trouble all day in the rain, with receivers falling down, and throwing 4 INT's. The game was tied at half 10-10, and was as close as 17-13 starting the 4th quarter. SC looks to rebound against Texas A&M.

    "It was just a bad day, all the way around. We couldn't get a thing done in the air out there, and we had to fight from behind in the 4th" Huskey said. "We are still growing as a team, and we will move past this, and continue to get better".

    Wake Forest Sleepwalks Past Rice 41-7

    After sitting and watching the first 2 weeks of the season, Wake Forest finally opened their season against an overmatched Rice Owls team. Tanner Price threw for 3 TDs, Josh Harris ran for 123 yards and a score, and the Deacon defense combined for 11 sacks, 2 INTs, 1 TD, and a shutout in a little over 3 quarters of work. The 2nd teamers came in late in the 3rd to clean up, and while the 2nd team defense promptly gave up a TD drive, the result was never in question.

    ND Takes Out Rival MSU

    Well, this one started out really well, then got really ugly, then got really good again for us. After stopping MSU's for a 3 & out on their first drive, we took the ball and Cierre Wood blew through a hole, used a downfield block and sprinted 60 yards for the TD. Unfortunately, that was the only success the offense could muster, as numerous solid drives sputtered out through the rest of the half. MSU took advantage, and had two great drives in the 2nd quarter to go up 14-7. ND was able to get to midfield and sneak a 48 yard field goal through the uprights to end the half down 14-10.

    The second half started much as the first half played out, with our offenses playing pretty weak. Wood was pounding out yards, but we kept getting stopped in important 3rd downs. Finally, at the end of the quarter, Wood was able to blow past a linebacker in coverage on a wheel route and catch a 50 yard TD with nobody around him to put us up 20-14. The 4th quarter we were able to finish things off, as Eifert capped a drive with a nice 22 yard TD catch and the defense shut the MSU offense down. We were able to add a FG to put the game out of reach, then MSU threw a bad pass which Jamoris Slaughter picked off and was able to return for the 36 yard TD.

    This was a huge recruiting weekend for ND as well, as about 10 key recruits were in to see the rivalry game between 2 ranked foes. Should give our class a big boost and hoping to see our first few commits jump on board.

    Player of the Game
    Cierre Wood, 37 runs for 266 yards & a TD, 1 catch for 50 yard TD
    Stephon Tuitt - 4 sacks, dude is a beast.
