USC continues to play stingy D and wins big over UAB.. Back-up where in early in the 3rd
BC vs. Northwestern
BC lost their senior star halfback for the season with a broken collar bone but still managed to top the Big10 nerds of Northwestern. BC brass are already calling all the HBs at Penn State to see if they'd like to play for a winner.
LOUISVILLE, KY- The pride of Durham rolled through Papa Johns Stadium, on their way to a 35-14 victory, and a 2-0 start to the season.
Carolina was led by All-Everything tailback Gio Bernard, whose 266 total yard performance, topped by two touchdowns including a 55 yard punt return, stole the show for the Tar Heels. Quarterback Bryn Renner continued his solid start to the '12 campaign, with a game managing 11/14 for 185 yards and a 10 yard strike to redshirt Sophomore Reggie Wilkins for a score. For the second consecutive game, Renner played without throwing an interception, a trend UNC coach Jon Gruden would love to see continued for the rest of the season.
Once again, the Tar Heel defense dug in and made for a painful day for Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater and company. Leading the way for the Carolina defenders, were the two big guns on that side, in DT Sylvester Williams and LB Kevin Reddick, who each contributed two sacks to the total of six racked up by the defense. The Tar Heels held Louisville to a pedestrian 197 yards of total offense, that included another dominating performance against the Cardinal running attack, holding their backs to a mere 44 yards on the ground.
In his post-game press conference, Coach Gruden also announced the signing of **** WR Marcus Ratliff (#37 WR/#163 OVR) out of Blacksburg, VA. Ratliff had also been considering Auburn, Tennessee, and Boise St. before committing to Carolina.
The Tar Heels come back to Durham, to begin a three game home stand, as they face off against in-state rival East Carolina in Week 4.
Golden Bears Shock The Buckeyes at the Shoe BERKELEY, CA-The Golden Bears came into their week three contest, with almost no one believing they could beat the Buckeyes of Ohio State, especially at their house, The Shoe. Cal certainly shocked the world though and pulled off a big upset beating Ohio State, 20-14. The real key to the victory was the great defensive play of the Golden Bears. The defense held the Buckeyes to 168 yards of total offense and only allowed star QB Braxton Miller to throw for 103 yards and rush for 39 yards. It was an all round effort by the defense, but the defensive line especially played extremely well. The team had 6 sacks on the day and most came from the defensive line players. On the offensive side of the ball, the Golden Bears had a well balanced attack. Allan Birdgford started his second game and threw for 223 yards and 2 touchdowns, he certainly is stepping up in the absence of starting quarterback Zach Maynard. QB was not the only position that Cal had to start a backup, start running back Isi Sofeli was out of the game with back spasms and CJ Anderson filled in. Anderson rushed for 88 yards and ran very hard all day long. You can't talk about the Cal offense without bringing up Keenan Allen of course. Allen had another big day, catching five passes for 140 yards and 2 touchdowns. All in all, it was a great day to be a Cal Golden Bears fan and a special victory for the team.
Turnovers & Kicking game, give Williams 1st win at Georgia Tech
ATLANTA, GA -- Georgia Tech started the season with 2 heart breaking road losses, new head coach was searching for answers of what was going on with his offense, he feels like 100 lbs was lifted off his shoulders by getting his 1st win of the season. Orwin Smith & Tony Zenon had both steller days Smith had 13 carries for 89 yards, and Zenon went 10 for 48 yards with a score the put the game out of reach. The Jackets took a 10-0 lead early in the 1st when it's special teams came up with a force fumble turned into a touchdown after getting a field goal. Virginia held strong with Michael Rocco's (14-30 ; 198 YD 1 td) but his Rocco threw a 4th quarter interception that Jemea Thomas took back to the house for 78 yards and give Tech a 30-13 lead with just 2:36 left. Senior quarterback Telvin Washington who has struggled midly in the past 2 games was benched late in the 3rd quarter for Sophomore Synjyn Days who only threw 1 pass which he threw for a interception that Virginia took back to the house to get the score to 30-20 but were unable to recover the onside kick and GT was able to run the clock out to get it's 1st win. Georgia Tech will host 0-2 Miami Hurricanes next week.
Maryland outlasts UCONN 14-11 College Park, MD-- The Terps came home after the butt whipping they took from Temple to host another Big East team in the UCONN Huskies. It started out to pretty much a seesaw battle of three and outs for both teams but UCONN would get on the board with field goal late in the first quarter to lead 3-0 but Maryland stormed back down the field after intercepting quarterback Johnny McEntee and scoring on a fullback plunge to take the lead 7-3 going into the half for the Terps. No scoring in the third quarter but in the fourth quarter the Terps would score after McEntee threw his fourth interception of the game and the Terps would score on a quarterback sneak but newly announced starting quarterback Ricky Schultz. The Terps would lead 14-3 as UCONN scored late and converted on a two point conversion to make 14-11 and the Terps would recover the onside kick to seal the game. Final score Maryland 14-11 and there first win of the year for Coach Moss. We caught up with Coach Moss after the game and lets just say this Gatorade never looked so good on the young coach. "Today our kids played four quarters of football today on every side of the ball and never gave UCONN much to work with the entire game. Eric Franklin our senior cornerback picked up there quarterback three times in the game and our defense held them to 29 yards on the ground." "Our offense played smart today and didn't turn the ball over and we made plays and we grabbed a bunch of yards on whatever there defense gave us. We didn't go for the big play right away as we tried to pound the ball and make the right throws. Justus (Pickett) really carried the ball hard for us today and helped us get some big yards to make the second and third downs much more manageable for our offense." "But we got a really good West Virginia team next week in there yard and we got to come out with all cylinders blazing and really get after the ball and make some plays and play really hard for four quarters. It will be a physical and mental test for our kids. But I think our kids will be up to the challenge and to the task at hand." As Coach Moss said off to West Virginia to play the Mountaineers.
Looks like everyone has a W now on the season.
