Week 3 - Season 6
Hard Advance for 10 PM EST Tuesday
UCLA goes to Lubbock, Texas, and comes up short. A&M hits a 45 yard FG as time expries to win 21-19. The big play of the game was a pick 6 on an ill-advised pass from UCLA's :RS: Sophomore, Adam Brown. "I'm very pleased with the way the D stepped up today, surrendering only 82 yards in the air. Wish the offense could have finished some drives, but there's nothing that can be done now. I'm going to go cry myself to sleep on the plane ride home."
Next up for UCLA is the conference opener at Oregon State.
Hell of a game, Knight. Hell of a game.
A lot of great games thus far. Keep it up!
A&M escapes with a victory vs. 10 UCLA
College Station, TX-- Texas A&M coming off a loss to #18 Purdue had another chance to take down a ranked team as UCLA came in at #10. A very defensive game where the first half there were 4 FGs and a UCLA lead of 9-3 into halftime. A&M was able to force a punt to open up the 3rd quarter and had a drive that resulted in the game's first TD and gave them the lead 10-9. UCLA would battle back and take the lead back with a FG with 6:17 remaining in the 4th, 12-10. A&M would be forced to punt on their next drive and the Bruins faced a 4th and 6 from the A&M 43 and decided to go against the punt and put 5 wrs out on the field. A&M played cover 2 and CB Keyes picked the pass off and went 67 yards for the score (2pt) with 2:21 remaining, 18-12. UCLA would comeback poised, cutting through the A&M defense flawlessly, making it look easy compared to the first 3 quarters to score with 1:06 left and the lead 19-18. A&M would harness the challenge as rookie QB Bonner wanted to respond unlike he did last week vs. Purdue. He led the charge downfield and was able to get to the 35 yard line with 0:04 left and a TO left to bring out the kicking team. UCLA would burn a TO, icing the kicker but it didnt matter as Washington struck the ball and nailing it right down the middle with the students rushing the field ending the game with a 21-19 win for the Aggies.
1st- pick 6 for 18-12 A&M lead
2nd- UCLA TD 19-18 Bruins
3rd- GW FG A&M
Like the editing job you did on the vid. Looks nice. Looking at the stats, I like how my team performed. Problem is I didn't win the one stat that matters most. Great game, Knight. It was a fun one to play.
yea, I'm a little disappointed in my passing game but I haven't played '10 with a horrible accuracy QB. If you remember some of his throws were just bad, once we start hitting routes consistently look out... 8-20 ouch!
No, that was just great pass defense. I've got the same issue with my QB. There some throws last night where I was like who the %&*@ is he throwing that to? Horrible! I think my guy's accuracy is somewhere in the 70's.
lol.. Yea, I recall two passes if you would have hit would have been pretty huge plays
Bowling Green came to Dane County last night and got dealt with. My TE is a beast. I ran 52 times. My defense played well. The Badgers played well with a special visitor on the sidelines. The #1 CB was in attendance and hopefully liked what he saw.
Now its a idle week, and then a battle of top 8 teams where Wisconsin host Michigan. It oughtta be special.
can we get a Vacation/Absence thread? As most of you know I'll be gone 6pm central til Wednesday late night, road trip to play Lincoln Memorial in Tennessee
its not stickied and not goin to look for it
Purdue survives close call @ Cinci
The game did not start out as expected for Purdue, and before they knew it they were staring at a 19-0 game (two miss XPs). Luckily, they were able to score with 2:30 left in the half, and then force an interception in the endzone with time expiring.
The Cincinnatti air attack was on absolute fire! Redshirt Junior QB Travis Wells pass 57 times, and dropped back atleast 65 (scrambles/sacks). He completed 34 passes for 354 yards, 4 TDs, and an INT.
The third quarter was all about big plays! Brian Robinson had a 63 yard TD run, and Mike Ellison returned a kickoff 81 yards for a TD. The Boilermakers forced the Bearcats' QB to fumble in the endzone, but somehow it was scooped up by an O linemen and taken out to the 5.
In the fourth quarter Purdue was able to hold onto their lead, and control the clock.
O PotG - Jr HB Brian Robinson
15 carries, 102 yards, 3 TDs
D PotG - So OLB Jake Hawkins
11 tackles (TFL)
Tech keeps their title hopes alive with a win @ Washington 34-21
Dakota disco'd in the 3rd quarter and is letting me keep the result.
Im not going to comment much on this one other than to say that either both team's offenses were on fire, or both teams have weak defenses... Washington and Tech took turns putting together extended scoring drives. However Tech did make one crucial stop in the redzone, stuffing Washington's HB on a 4th down conversion attempt. The second half consisted of Tech chewing up the clock and Cheech housing one last TD pass.
GG Dakota. We should definitely schedule a rematch next season
23/36 350yd 4TD 0INT
10REC 194yd 3TD
3REC 59yd 1TD (nice over the shoulder user catch I wish I saved the highlight)
Yeah, great 2 and a half quarters. Fckn ATT........I have no idea what happened, everything was out for 45 minutes, then poof.........everything is fine. Too bad it happened, would've been a fun finish. I will defintely travel to Lubbock next season for the rematch.
Tulsa Finally Picks Up a Win!!
Hurricane Knock off Buffs Second Year in a Row 27-14
The #19 Golden Hurricane, like most of the nation, came into this game thinking about how it should have set up. After losing two nail biters in heartbreaking fashion they truly feel they should have been unbeaten, alas, they were not. So, the Hurricane turned their sites to a home opener against 1-1 Colorado and truly unleashed the kind of physical and abusing gameplan that Coach Jman loves, run the damn ball.
A scoreless first quarter consisted of feeling eachother out and a missed oppurtunity for Tulsa as they were stifled on a 4th and 2 from the Colorado 3 in a questionable call to go for it. From there, it heated up. Every one of Tulsa's scoring drives were 2:00 or more as they tallied 19:36 time of possession. Basically, Coach Jman's game plan worked, get in the I 80% of the time and give it to your two tailbacks (Horner went out in the start of the 4th) and your stud fullback. The best coaching job was done by not putting (RS)FR QB Pat Meyer oppurtunities to turn the ball over as all passes but one (a TD laser in double coverage) were high percentile and he went 12/12 on the day. Colorado had their shots as they twice held Tulsa to FG's but two 4th quarter INT's sealed the deal.
Tulsa Offensive POTG:
(RS)FR QB Pat Meyer - 12/12 149 yards 1/0 - 8 carries for 40 yards
JR HB Jason Horner - 27 carries for 91 yards and 1 TD
Tulsa Defensive POTG:
Bush 3 tackles (2TFL) and 2 sacks
#21 Arizona 45 - ECU 20
It was bitter sweet going back to the old stomping grounds. Actually, this game looked like a mis match on paper in ECU's favor. They are better rated grade wise, and led us in almost all statistical categories. They didn't have the dogs to hang though. We took an early lead and never looked back. Paul Mitchell was on freaking fire the first 3 quarters but threw a garbage pick early in the 4th. Chris Hamby had another solid day and the defense played pretty well, but did give up a few big plays. Other than that the Pirate's were pretty much outclassed in this one.
Off. POTG : RB Chris Hamby 24 -150 2 tds and WR Roy Hall 4 - 150 2 tds and 1 carry for 58 yards
Def. POTG No one really stood out. Everyone semmingly had 5-7 tackles, 1 for loss. It was a pretty complete effort all around.
Next up is our PAC 10 opener vs. Oregon State.
