    UCLA Defense Bend, Don't Break

    For the fourth week in a row, UCLA would play in Los Angeles before they hit the road next week, hosting the PAC-12's own Arizona State. Last season, the Bruins would nearly give up a 17 point lead in the fourth quarter, but walked out of Pheonix with the win. Would the Sun Devil's hurry-up offense cause the Bruins problems for the second year in a row? ASU's Mike Bercovici would certainly try.

    It seems like every game starts the same way for the Bruins, and this game was no different. On the first drive, Hundley would storm down the field hitting WR Shaquelle Evans, TE John Young and finally Rickey Marvray for a 17-yard touchdown to take the lead. Bercovici and company would take time with their response, missing a field goal at the end of the drive, one of their two missed field goals on the day.

    The second quarter saw the Marvray-Hundley connection shine through, as he would catch one from 11 yards out seconds into the quarter to finish a drive that started in the first, and getting open with 1:11 remaining in the first half. The Sun Devils' offensive firepower wasn't anything to be scoffed at, but within the fourty in Bruins territory, they'd settle for two Garoutte Field Goals. UCLA with the lead at halftime 21-6. The Sun Devils would have to slow down the Bruin attack if they wanted a shot at the comeback that they were so close to in 2012.

    The third quarter, instead of the fourth, ended up being the most decisive. UCLA would score three touchdowns, the first of which from Jerry Rice Jr. from 42 yards out on a miraculous catch on the edge of the field. The second, after a PAT and kickoff, occured with Antoine Sapp, a cornerstone of the 2012 UCLA Recruiting class, would pick of Mike Bercovici and return it 24 yards for his first touchdown and interception of his career. TE John Young would fight off double coverage in a not-so-smart pass by Brett Hundley, bailing him out with the grab and UCLA's sixth touchdown of the day, taking a commanding 42-6 lead with 3:57 remaining. Jim Mora Jr would call off the dogs, taking their time to get to the fourth quarter, hoping to have enough fuel left to hold back the Sun Devils' offense that had been so quiet thus far.

    Backup UCLA QB TJ Millweard would get off to a rocky start, when a third down pass turned into an interception to OLB Salamo Fiso would get taken back all the way to the house, Arizona State's defense sick of getting run over. But he would settle in, and with the help of backup RB Jordon James, would drain the clock fast enough to allow no upset in L.A. Arizona State's offense would finally score a touchdown for their first time all day, with Bercovici hitting Gary Chambers from 25 yards out, the ensuing onside kick recovered by the Bruins, and the game would be over.

    The result would shed light on a few dark spots regarding the Bruins. John Young's great game marked the first time a Tight End has had an impact since Joseph Fauria graduated, adding another dangerous piece to this offense. It'd also emphasize that the Bash Brothers are a thing, with Jordan and younger brother Erick Zumwalt combining for 17 tackles, 3 tackles for loss and countless QB pressures.

    Final Score :
    Arizona State 20 - 42 UCLA

    Player of the Game :
    UCLA CB Antoine Sapp - 5 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 INT and 1 defensive touchdown

    Beavers Take Care of Army
    This game was all OSU. From the get go the Beavers showed the talent gap by continually stuffing the run, and limiting the amount of first downs converted. RB Malcolm Agnew scored his only TD of the game in the first quarter to start the romping. It was a simple 48 yard handoff up the middle with some solid blocking. Once he broke free in the second level no one would catch him. With another quick three and out OSU would score right before the quarter ended with a 20 yards pass to TE Caleb Smith. The second quarter was much of the same with handing the ball of to Agnew and Mannion scoring TDs through the air. Mannion would strike Hatfield for a 10 yard and TD, and then hit Brandin Cooks in stride for a 74 yard TD before halftime. Beavers would lead this one 28-0.​
    With game being so lopsided Coach Saw put in his 2nd Stringers in the third and 3rd Stringers in the fourth quarter. RB Terron did a fairly good job ripping through the Army defense but with his stamina not being so good Storm Woods got the opportunity to shine. Woods would be the last TD scored of the game and it would come off a 24 yard scamper. As the 3rd Stringers came in it was a little bit harder for OSU to move the ball but it was still easy stopping the fleXbox One. Trevor Romaine kicked a 28 yard FG early in the fourth to bring the final tally to 38 points.​

    Heels Settle Score, Avenge Loss Despite Late Bronco Rally
    UNC 31
    Boise 28
    It's well documented that the Boise State Broncos were the only thing that kept the Tar Heels from earning a National Championship birth last season. The Heels were otherwise perfect, only dropping their week 1 game to Boise, whom athletic director DD had scheduled a home and home series with over 2012-2013. Needless to say, UNC had this game circled on their schedule all offseason.​
    UNC came out very strong, jumping out to a 31-14 lead behind excellent defense and a balanced offensive attack. The Heels, perhaps a bit overzealous, continued to air the ball out in the second half despite the lead, and it led to two Bryn Renner interceptions. Just like that, Boise jumped right back into this game, and stormed back on two Matt Miller touchdown catches.​
    In the end, it wasn't quite enough, as UNC just edged out the undefeated Broncos. Renner finished 15-22 for 245 yards 3 TDs and 2 INTs. DE Tim Jackson continues his hot streak, collecting 3 more sacks on the day. WR Sean Tapley stepped up for the Heels, as TJ Thorpe was shut down most of the day. He had 5 catches for 102 yards and 2 scores.​
    The Heels now improve to 4-0 as they prepare for rival Duke next week. Boise drops to 3-1.​
