Week 6 Game Summaries
Week 6 is up Good Luck Guys
SMU Pummels Conference-USA opponent Tulsa.
The game was closer through out the first half than the box score shows. With Tulsa taking the lead 7-0, the Mustangs once again had to play catch up to keep their perfect season in tact. What ensued was a school record breaking performance from Sophomore quarterback Kyle Padron.
Padron threw for 498 yards and 6 TD's, breaking the record he set in last year's Hawaii Bowl of 460 yards. Padron did throw two interceptions bringing his season total to 19. The starting offense and defense were both pulling from the game 3 minutes into the third quarter after a fumble recovery for a touchdown put the Mustangs up 52-14. When the final gun shot was heard and dust settled, the SMU Mustangs kept their perfect season dreams alive by a score of 52-21.
With this win SMU becomes Bowl eligible!
WKU (28) @ FIU (45)
In the Sun Belt Conference opener the Golden Panthers prevailed thanks to a strong fourth quarter performance by the Golden Panther's Defense. We caught up with Coach Stewart after the game.
"Well I think you saw that our strong out of conference schedule paid dividends today, and in the fourth quarter our kids kicked it up a notch, causing a total of three turnovers, and scoring some points off of those turnovers. When we can get the other team to turn the ball over, we're a very good team, when we turn the ball over on the other hand we're not a very good team. I was disapointed in the first half where we had chances to put the game away but we made mental mistakes. After halftime we returned to our game plan, and our running game really wore them out."

Nevada Defeats San Jose State 28-21
Playing at home, Nevada barely escaped the San Jose State Spartans in a close and physical game. The Spartans jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a 9-yard TD catch from WR Kyle Nunn. Hoping to respond, the Nevada faithfuls were stunned as San Jose State recovered a fumble on Nevada's first drive of the game. However, Nevada buckled down and forced a quick 3 and out.
The second quarter saw Nevada move the ball down the field with ease, as Kaepernick completed his first 10 passes. Near the goal-line, it was all Taua, all the time. RB Taua rushed for a touchdown on a 9yard and 2yard run to put Nevada up 14-7 at the half.
The third quarter saw the Spartans tie it up on a 25 yard TD catch from WR Andrew Reyes. As the boos rained down from the stands, Kaepernick gathered up his guys and moved the ball down field on just 2 throws. Once again, Taua plowed through the Spartan defense near the goal line for his 3rd TD run of the day.
Holding onto a 1 TD lead at the beginning of the 4th quarter, Kaepernick saw some daylight and ran the ball in for a 17 yard TD run. However, the Spartans would not quit. Facing a 4th and 17, from 20 yards out, Kyle Nunn caught his 2nd TD of the day on a misread by the Wolf Pack's secondary. With the game on the line, Nevada handed the ball off to Taua time and again as he consistently ran for first downs to keep the clock running. In the end, the Wolf Pack escaped as time ran out for the Spartans.
The win kept Nevada's conference championship alive, as they are still undefeated in league play. "This was a big win for our team. We didn't play our best, but our guys stepped up when it matters most," said Coach Nguyen. "The turnovers in the last two games have absolutely killed us. Just brutal."

Red Wolves continue to Roll
Despite being infected by the turnover bug and the dropped passes the Red Wolves managed to take down their bitter rival North Texas 24-14. It was a sloppy day on the field but the fans didnt seem to care. The game was a defensive battle for the most part with the Red Wolves defense shining again. Since their week 1 mishap the Red Wolves defense has stepped up to all of the challenging competition. Next week the Red Wolves travel to take on Big Ten competitor Indiana. The Red Wolves improve to 5-1 and 4-0 in conference play.
Below you will see newly appointed starting halfback Frankie Jackson taunting the North Texas mascot after a Red Wolves touchdown.

Aztecs Stay Perfect
It didn't come easy, that's for sure. The Aztecs faced their greatest challenge of the season yet as San Diego State traveled to Provo, Utah to face the Cougars of BYU. They trailed 14-13 at halftime for the first time this season. Holding BYU to a field goal with 2:01 second left in the 4th quarter, all the Aztecs had to do was get two first downs to secure a two point victory. They did just that relying on Sophomore running back Walter Kazee who carried the ball 25 times for 155 yards and 2 scores. Quarterback Ryan Lindley kneeled on the ball as time expired to send the Aztecs to a 5-0 start and a win against RIVAL BYU!
Senior BJ Williams recorded his 10th sack of the season, he was leading the NCAA after 5 weeks. San Diego State will host Air Force next weekend as they look to go 6-0 and become bowl eligible. "I'm really proud of how these guys persevered," Said Coach E "Nobody expected us to start off this well, and I'm really excited to see what we can do the rest of the season.
The final score in Provo, Utah was San Diego State Aztecs 25 (5-0) vs BYU Cougars 23 (2-4)
Excellent win man.. Good job!
Lol no comment
Memphis faced there toughest opponent of the year. Louisvilles offense gave Memphis a run for there money. Lville scored at will in the first half of what appeared to be a shootout. In the second half the Memphis d steped up and shut out the Lville offense. Heisman hopefull Markus Rucker dominated early and often finishing the game with 4 reciving touchdowns and over 200 reciving yrds. Qb Tyler Bass said Lville would have ran away with the win if it wasent for Rucker having a heisman like day. WR Markus Rucker # 18 Heisman shot

Here's is a snippet from Ohio Head Coach Robbie Garrison's post-game press conference:
"We played our first "all-around" solid game of the year out there today. We were really clicking on all cylinders on both sides of the ball today. Our defense really played the best I've seen them all year and really punched them in the mouth today. If we keep playing like this for the rest of the season we could ride this thing all the way to Detroit and beyond!"
