    What are you thinking for the National Championship Semifinal?

    I'd be willing to roll tonight after 9PM CST if that works for you. I've got my kids all weekend.

    BUCKS WIN WITHOUT BARRETT IN BLACKSBURG

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The Ohio State Buckeyes moved to 3-0 with a dominating win on the road against a good Virginia Tech squad, and did so without their starting QB. Sophomore quarterback JT Barrett, who led the Bucks to an undefeated national championship season a year ago, struggled through two quarters of football before being knocked out of the game on a blindside hit right before halftime. The diagnosis for Barrett was a broken elbow, and with a bye on the docket next week the signal caller likely won't miss any more time.

    That being said, when Barrett returns, the Buckeyes will expect a more consistent performance out of him and everyone else associated with the OSU arial attack. Prior to leaving the game Barrett was just 5-of-11 with an INT, but all can't be blamed on the quarterback's shoulders. The OSU receiving corps struggled in getting separation downfield, and when they did Barrett didn't have much time to find them, as he was sacked four times and hurried on just about every snap.

    With Barrett on the sidelines and the OSU offensive line looking porous in pass protection, the Bucks turned to their always dependable running game. Coming off a career-best 283 yard performance against Toledo, H-back Dontre Wilson was yet again fantastic. The junior carried the ball 20 times for 160 and a score, and broke off three runs of 20 or more yards. Wilson has been the Buckeye's primary weapon in the two games since Ezekiel Elliot's injury, and that trend will likely continue as the Bucks moving closer to conference play.

    "Dontre is our most consistent and most dynamic weapon," said coach Speyer. "It's only natural that we want the ball in his hands more often than not.

    Wilson was hardly the only Buckeye to flash playmaking ability on Saturday, however. Freshman Aaron Jenkins, Wilson's understudy at H-Back, had 7 carries for 70 yards and a score, and looked very good bouncing runs to the outside. Senior Bri'onte Dunn, getting his first 10-carry game since breaking his collarbone as a sophomore in 2013, look fantastic running in between the tackles, piling up 107 yards while making the most of his opportunity to play in Elliot's absence. And the dynamic slot receiver Jalin Marshall took a punt to the house in addition to hauling in 3 catches for a team-high 33 receiving yards.

    The Bucks are off next week before commencing B1G play at Minnesota.

    Game Notes
    = JT Barrett left the game in the second quarter with broken ribs
    = Dontre Wilson carried the ball 20 times for 160 yards and a score
    = Freshman cornerback Marshon Stephens recorded his second INT of the season

    Stanford escapes' UCLA upset bid despite Crower's 6 INTs
    Los Angeles, CA - The 11th ranked UCLA Bruins were looking for that signature win that would make the nation take notice. Stanford is just relieved to get out the Rose Bowl unscathed. Adam Jones scored on a six yard catch in overtime after UCLA was held to a field goal on its drive, as the fourth-ranked Stanford (3-0) escaped 27-24. UCLA held and dominated most of the game, but despite the sub-par effort from the Cardinal offense, they came alive at the most opportune time to remain undefeated.

    UCLA's defense was geared to stop the Heisman trophy candidate, Barry Sanders Jr. Sanders Jr. was held to only 82 yards on 22 carries. Stanford could not muster any sort of offense in the first half, as the team combined to go 0/5 on third downs in the first half. To complicate efforts even more, Evan Crower has his worst effort as a starter, throwing 6 INTs in the game, most coming when Stanford was driving and in position to score on the Bruins' defense. UCLA broke the scoreless tie with 1:38 to play in the half, when TJ Milweard found Kenneth Walker streaking across the middle for a score. Crower would get Stanford quickly down-field in scoring position, but MLB stepped in front of a pass intended for Sanders Jr. and returned 79 yards for a score with :15 left in the half and UCLA would lead 14-0 at the break.

    Stanford still could not muster much offense in the second half, but a big catch and run by Kelsy Young would put the Cardinal in scoring position midway through the third. Sanders Jr would punch it in from two yards out to slice the Bruin lead in half. Alex Carter would pick off a Milweard pass on the next drive and, Stanford would even the score at 14 early in the 4th. UCLA would come right back as Milweard would lead the Bruins down the field, and once in the red zone, RB Keith Watkins would take over and run it in from 5 yards out to give UCLA the lead again 21-14 with 3:02 to play. Crower would trow his 6th pick on Stanford's next play, but the Stanford defense would be able to bog UCLA down and forced a punt, which was downed at the 3 with 1:35 to play. 97 yards with two timeouts is what the Cardinal now faced to keep their perfect season. Crower gathered his composure and would found Young, Kaumatule, Jones, and Sanders Jr. on consecutive passes to get Staford in the red zone. After a seven yard run, Crower found Kaumatule in the end zone with :09 left to tie the game.

    UCLA received the ball first in overtime, and after one play were already inside the ten yard line. But three consecutive rushes would yield zero yards, and Connor Hall would boot one through to give the Bruins the lead. Stanford now with a chance to escape with a victory took full advantage. Two runs by Sanders Jr. would net a first down at the 6, and on the play, Adan Jones found the soft spot in the UCLA zone to seal the win. A win is win no matter how ugly and Coach Townsend will gladly take it.

    Texas A&M gets revenge in tight battle
    Last season an early loss to Oregon at ATM ended up being the only loss on the season and kept them out of the National Title while Oregon went on to face eventual NC winner tOSU. This year ATM fought the ducks in their own pond.
    On a dreary rainy day the recipe for both squads seemed to be to keep it on the ground, especially early.
    The Aggie defense came to play and answered the bell, shutting down the high powered Oregon offense early in the game. They set up the ATM offense with good field position and lots of confidense. The Ducks looked to shut down Matt Davis' running ability so coach utilized his talented running back, Trey Williams. They worked methodically down field on their first scoring drive which set up a 26 yard pass to Trey out of the back field during which he shed a tackle by one DB and took it in ecstatically.

    Trey Williams is PUMPED!​

    Trey would score again on a quick inside run from 7 yards out to make the score 14-0 at the end of the first. Oregons offense couldn't keep anything going at this point. The run was stifled and young starter Jarvis Lumpkin had no luck early with a few passes nearly picked off.
    ATM would drive all the way down the field mid way through the second and Davis found TE Darrick Tanner after he got good separation in the end zone to make the score 21-0.

    Tanner had a big day and ran a crisp route to get wide open for 6​

    Oregon got the ball with about three and a half minutes in the half and did a good job of mixing run and a few passes to work their way down field. They would come up with a 4th and long around the ATM 40 and Coach Jandy rolled the dice and threw the ball. It was intercepted killing a good drive. One the ensuing drive, Matt Davis saw Oregon loading the box and audibled to a quick pass. He was too aggressive and threw the ball right back to the Oregon D, improving their field position and setting up their first TD of the game right before halftime. It was a very costly mistake. 21-7 Aggies at Half


    In the second half, the Oregon O took hold of momentum. They worked the ball down the field with big 3rd down conversions on the way and punched it in from 5 yards out in the waning seconds of the third to cut the lead to 7.
    The Aggies were probably a bit too conservative, having had success running early, but Oregon's D was determined to get the ball back. To make matters worse, starting tailback Trey Williams was injured at the end of the first and would miss the rest of the game. Backup Tra Carson is talented but more of a bruiser, having switched to fullback last season and back to HB this year with the departure of Brandon Williams.
    On a pivotal 3rd and 3 in the fourth quarter the Aggie O-Line picked up their defenders perfectly. Carson went straight for the hole, but a Duck LBer shed his block and stopped him just short of the first down, forcing a punt. Oregon would get the ball back with plenty of time left and all the momentum on their side. Lumpkin and Co worked their way down rather quickly and tied up the ballgame with just under three and a half minutes remaining.
    It was on Matt Davis and the offense to take the ball down and score. They ran the ball well and mixed in a few passes as well to get the ball close to the redzone with about 1 minute left. Milking the clock and content to run the ball and get into field goal position, Tra Carson busted one up the middle and scored from 21 yards out. Unfortunately this game Oregon 51 seconds, way too much time.
    The defense was all over it though, picking off Lumpkin for a third time. Sophomore Noel Ellis came up with his second pick on the day on a great stretch. Had he been just a few inches away, it may have been a TD for Oregon as their receiver had a lot of space. Davis would be able to kneel out the clock.

    Noel Ellis seals the game with a pick​

    Stats:
    Davis: 8/14 for 180, 2TD and 1INT
    T Williams: 51 rushing, 1TD, and 58 receiving with 1 TD
    T Carson 104 yards with a TD
    D Tanner 87 yards receiving with 1 TD

    That was a great game. You jumped on me quick and had me a little worried. In the end, I think the better team won. Freshmen quarterbacks are tough, especially in their second game. Best of luck the rest of the way
