    As great as last season was, I can already tell that this season is going to be even more fun and interesting with the addition of user home-and-homes. We had our first taste of them last week, as the #1 and #2 teams in the land fell at the hands of another user. Things will continue to heat up this week, with two more user games on the docket, including a Big 10 showdown between Wisconsin and the top ranked Fighting Irish.​
    #4 Michigan vs. #17 Stanford​
    #5 Auburn vs. Mississippi State​
    #8 Virginia Tech vs. Pittsburgh​
    #6 Texas @ Texas A&M​
    #3 Ohio State @ #22 Michigan State​
    #25 Arkansas @ #16 Georgia Tech
    User Game of the Week: #1 Notre Dame vs. #9 Wisconsin

    Cant wait man, you definitely have some skills on the sticks and an all around cool program. Looking forward to see how it progresses. Ray Hall was outstanding, that last punt return really gave me all the momentum. Don't slight Tavaris McLaurin tho :p

    And It's Goodbye to A&M
    Horns overcome early turnovers to win The Lone Star Showdown
    Texas travelled to College Station to take on the Aggies of A&M and the 12th Man that is Kyle Field. After a nearly perfect start that saw the Longhorns score on the game's first possession and force a 3-and-out on A&M's first drive, two Malcolm Brown fumbles put the Horns in a precarious spot. The defense was able to hold the Aggies to a FG after the first turnover, but then missed a couple of tackles and surrendered a 30-yard TD pass following Brown's second fumble. Despite the fumbles, Brown ran the ball very well as he managed to gain 194 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries. The coaching staff settled him down and got him focused on taking care of the ball and he responded with a "player of the game" performance. The offensive line was outstanding as well, as they opened huge holes all day long.
    In the second half, the UT defense took command and allowed A&M a field goal on the opening drive of the third quarter. They continually got pressure on Aggie QB Johnny Manziel with 5 sacks, and that pressure eventually led to interceptions. After Texas QB found TE Trey Graham for a short scoring pass and a 2-point conversion put the Horns back ahead by six points, both CBs Carrington Byndom and Josh Turner returned intercepted passes for game-clinching touchdowns.
    This game was closer than it should have been due to the early turnovers, but any victory in a rivalry game is a welcome one. If the defense hadn't responded the way they did, this road game could have easily gotten away from Texas. The Longhorns are off next week with a bye, before conference foe Kansas travels to Ausin the next week.

    The #8 Virginia Tech Hokies having come off their loss to Ohio State came back home to face the Pittsburgh Panthers. It was not a pretty game against the Panthers but still the Hokies came away with the 21-7 win at home. "The 1st win is always the toughest" said Coach Ransom after his teams victory. The victory also came with a price as starting wideout Joel Caleb who caught a 78 yard touchdown pass is out for the season. A big blow to the inexperience wideout core of VA Tech Hokies, which puts more pressure on the other wide outs to step up. The defense was strong today getting 2 interceptions, 2 sacks, and allowing 130 yards of total offense. The defense also gave only 1 thrid down conversion in 8 tries. Not a pretty win but a tough grind it out win for the Hokies

    Buckeyes Survive Another Spartan Scare
    For the second straight year Ohio State survives Michigan State in East Lansing, this time edging out MSU in regulation 35-34. A week after an emotional win over then top-ranked Virginia Tech, the Ohio State defense struggled to maintain their high level of play. OSU couldn't get Michigan State off the field, as the Spartans converted on 8 of 14 third downs and all three of their fourth down attempts.
    The Buckeyes' defense made their biggest stop of the game when it mattered most however. On third down from the 23-yard line, MSU quarterback Andrew Maxwell targeted Keith Mumphrey in the endzone for what would have been the go ahead touchdown. Buckeye defensive back Bradley Roby was beat trying to press Mumphry, but recovered and made an incredible play to bat the ball away. Michigan State was forced to kick a field goal and hope that their defense could get them the ball back. The defense wasn't able to rise to the occasion, as Braxton Miller connected with Ray Hall for a short gain, a first down, and the win.
    Hall had another fantastic performance in his first road game. His 99-yard kick return for a touchdown in the first quarter tied the game at 14 and destroyed whatever momentum MSU had built from a long touchdown drive. He again found the end zone on a short pass from Miller late in the first half. Miller and Hall seem to be developing chemistry, as Hall once again led the team in receptions.
    Ohio State has a bye next week and then hosts a struggling North Carolina squad.

    IRISH RUN THROUGH BADGERS AND DEFEND #1 RANKING
    The Irish entered tonight's showdown in South Bend looking to make a statement. Despite being #1 in the Coaches poll, the Irish were #3 in the media poll as the critics said Notre Dame hadn't had a true test in the Big Ten. The true test came Saturday courtesy of #9 Wisconsin and the Irish passed with flying colors, thumping the Badgers 38-14 in South Bend.

    Notre Dame was in control from the start, and the game looked to be a defensive battle as the Irish took a meager 10-0 lead into the half. The Irish nailed a field goal on their opening drive, and Everett Golson scrambled for a 51 yard TD on a QB keeper right before the half.

    Last year's Heisman winner then took matters into his own hands in the second half, running off two scores including a 75 yard touchdown that put the Irish up 38-14 for good. Cierre Wood finished with 239 yards and 2 TDs on the day. Golson ran for 93 yards and two scores as well as the Irish reeled off 344 yards on the ground on against a normally stout Wisconsin defense.

    Gunner Kiel was efficient in his first marquee start, completing 66% of his passes for a score.

    The Irish look to defend their ranking next week against the Nittany Lions of Penn State. Expect Cierre Wood to continue building upon a possible second Heisman campaign after his stellar performance against Wisconsin.

    Auburn takes care of Miss St, Frazier continues to Impress, and Defense continues to rack up sacks...​
