    Idaho 10 - Fresno State 41

    Ouch. This one was very ugly for Idaho. No offensive touchdowns for Idaho which I think is the second week in a row. The offense wasn't all that bad just couldn't convert. The defense was torn apart giving up 600 yards of offense! Nobody deserves player of the game awards for Idaho so no one will get them.​

    Quarterback Reader has struggled all year. Idaho is hoping that they can have a JUCO player come in and take over or even a transfer who obviously wouldn't be eligible next year. This season is looking like its going to be a dissappointing one and the head coach is just hoping for another win.​

    Coach whales is starting to question his decision to leave Tulane (even though he was there for only a week haha) to come to Idaho.​

    Eagles Routed in the Rubber Bowl

    The Eastern Michigan Eagles fall to 0-3 (0-1 MAC) after an embarrassing effort against the Akron Zips (1-1, 1-0 MAC), losing the contest 53-19. Although taking a 7-0 lead 1:40 into the game on a 61 yard interception return for a touchdown by senior defensive captain corner-back Willie Williams, EMU had no chance. Akron scored twice in the first half to take a 14-7 lead going into the break, but put the game away on the first play of the second half, a 74 yard td pass increasing the lead to 20-7. A minute later, the Zips were back in the endzone, pushing the lead to 26-7. Distraught with his teams effort, coach Redwings8831 pulled all of his starters, offense and defensive, and put in the backups, hoping for a spark. The light flickered once, when senior defensive end Brad Ohrman returned another interception 51 yards, cutting the Akron lead to 26-13. However, when Akron score twice more and went up 39-13 and coach Redwings8831 realized his backups didn't know how to tackle, the starters went back in. On the next offensive series, when EMU didn't think it could get any worse, starter and junior quarterback Alex Gillett broke his collarbone and is out for 6 weeks. The teams traded touchdowns in the 4th and even when EMU recovered an onside kick, their offense stalled.

    Besides the two interceptions, Akron quarterback, junior Patrick Nicely only threw three incompletions. He broke a school record with 7 touchdown passes and was 22 for 27 for 364 yards. Sophomore Broderick Alexander ran for 138 yards on 19 carries with a touchdown, and five different receivers caught a touchdown pass.

    For Eastern Michigan, the two quarterbacks combined were 8 for 37, with a 156 yards and a touchdown. The rushing attack was pathetic, as five players combined for 17 yards on 24 carries. Junior tight-end Kyle DeMaster led the team in receiving with 64 yards on 3 receptions.

    Other Notes:
    1) Akron outgained Eastern Michigan 520-173
    2) Eastern Michigan was 2 for 14 on 3rd down conversions, and 1 for 6 on 4th down conversions.
    3) EMU actually won the turnover battle 2-0.
    4) EMU total offense - 173 yards, EMU kickoff return totals - 159 yards

    Next week, the Eagles return home to face the Kent State Golden Flashes. If coach Redwings8831 is hoping to retain his job, changes have to occur extremely fast.

    The Aztecs got back on track last week and look to go to .500 with a victory this week with a win over their bitter rivals from Las Vegas. Last year the Rebs put a whoopin on the Aztecs. The Aztecs were feeling unstoppable after a road win against then #3 TCU and UNLV brought them crashing back to earth.

    UNLV @ SDSU

    The Aztecs came out with guns a blazing going to a 20-3 lead in the 1st quarter. Two rushing TDs from Hillman and a 50 yard strike from Lindley to Sandifer started the scoring off. UNLV countered in the 2nd quarter with 17 unanswered points. The score was 20-20 at half and the SDSU head coach could feel the momentum shifting to the Rebs.
    In the 2nd half all hell broke loose as the O coordinator for SDSU let it fly and gave all confidence to his senior QB Lindley. For Lindley this was his last chance to finally get a victory against the 0-2 Rebels. They lined up almost exclusively in shotgun after an early 2 yard TD run from Hillman. Lindley went on to throw 4 more TDs, 3 of them to Sandifer, before the game came to a merciful end 55-20. The much maligned SDSU defense came out with a vengence and shut down the passing attack of UNLV. Coach Rice of SDSU was asked what he thought of his teams performance and responded with "This could be the start of something great here. Lindley played the game of his life and I couldnt be prouder of these young men."

    QB-R. Lindley
    passer rating- 266.7
    22-30 for 455 yards
    6 TDs and 0 INTS

    SMU vs. Tulane was a make or break game for both the Mustangs and the Green Wave. Both teams were 0-2 and it seems like the loser would need a heck of a comeback season to think about a C-USA title. SMU had no answer for the run. 'nuff said. Tulane's HB, Albert Williams, ran for 270 yards and 3 TDs leading up to a much needed victory for the winless Green Wave. The Mustangs fall to 0-3, a place Coach Breezy never saw coming and needs all the help he can get from his star QB to get through the season. They're maybe a new starting HB for the Mustangs next week as 2nd string HB had 61 yards on 4 carries and ran for 2 TDs while starter Z. Line was 11 carries for 87 yards and 0 TDs. Overall Tulane dominated the second half. It was 21-14 Tulane at halftime and It was all Tulane the rest of the game.

    Final Score
    Tulane - 31 SMU - 14
