    UVA Upsets #3 Baylor 52-14
    UVA faced another top 5 team today in Charlottesville with their matchup against the #3 Baylor Bears. With Baylor defeating Texas in the Big 12 two seasons ago and UVAs narrow win over the Longhorns in last year’s matchup, this game was an intriguing matchup. UVAs gameplan did not change much from what has brought them success in the past: run the option enough to force the defense to contain it and then run plays off the option motion to keep the defense off balance. This simple formula worked once again as they were able to top the Bears with a score of 52-14. Not to be outdone, the Cavaliers defense took advantage of the young Baylor QB forcing 5 turnovers and allowing only 14 points for an offense that has been one of the best in the nation for the last few years.

    UVA held Baylor to less than 300 total yards, with the key stat being the rushing advantage in UVAs favor 184 to 76. B-Back Kevin Dockins put together another solid performance with 119 yards and 3 TD on 23 ATT. Although the Freshman QB Williams had a rough game, he showed some real potential and he will be worth watching carefully for the next few years. A bright spot for Baylor was slot WR Lee who used his speed mismatch to go for over 100 yards on 5 catches, bringing in a TD on the day as well.

    The first quarter was almost all UVA, except for a big deep shot that gave Baylor some life and led to a TD at the end of the quarter. The second quarter was much like the first, except with a much faster pace from both squads. UVA scored with 22 seconds left, recovered a fumble on a QB scramble, and the failed to convert from the 1 yard line as the time expired in the first half, leaving the score at 35-14.

    UVA received to start the second half and focused on running the ball and playing solid defense. They were able to put up 14 points in the 3rd quarter and add a field goal late in the game to put the final score to 52-14.

    POG: UVA QB David Watford 14/16 231 YDS 1 TD

    Good Game Bucs I'm glad we got this one in before I had to head out of town. Your freshman QB definitely hurt you a little bit in this one, but if you stick with him he's going to be a beast. When his accuracy improves and his fumbling issues go away, I think we should have a MUCH closer game down the road. Best of luck this season!

    Fayetteville (AP) - The Arkansas offense rolled up over 500 yards to spring the home upset over #4 Texas A&M and all-everything QB Johnny Manziel. The Aggies were able to move the ball effectively behind Manziel's 400 yards total offense, but the Hogs defense forced a 4th down red zone stop and 2 INTs. Surprise QB starter RS-SR Brandon Allen took advantage of his opportunity to pass for over 300 yards and 3 TDs/3 INTs and All-SEC HB Alex Collins surpassed the century mark for the 3rd time this year.
