    Utah State Beats UL Monroe 58-23

    [​IMG]

    The Aggies walked into Monroe and got things started quickly with a 73 yard TD pass to take a 7-0 lead just 40 seconds into the game. UL Monroe responded with a big play of thier own, as Centarius Donald broke out for a 51 yard TD run just one minute later. After the two teams traded punts, Utah State got the fireworks going again as Sapp connected to TE Matt Alvarez for a 53 yard Touchdown pass. ULM would move the ball on a long drive late in the 2nd, but was held to a Field Goal. The Aggie offense moved the ball once again, as Sapp threw his 3rd TD pass of the game to take a 21-10 lead. There would be 3 possessions in the final 50 seconds, but no scoring.

    The Warhawks received to open the 3rd quarter, hoping to cut the Aggie lead to one possession, but on the return Utah State's Jason Smith knocked the ball out and Robert Lewis recovered, taking it 23 yards to the house to take a 28-10 lead. Monroe managed respond, with Donald striking again from 25 yards out, to cut the lead to 11. Utah State kept the offense moving, capping their drive with a fade pass to the 6 foot 6 Anthony Bonds for a TD. Utah State would force another Warhawk fumble and Harvey Davis capitalized, breaking off a 73 yard TD run to take a commanding 42-17 lead. UL Monroe scored on last touchdown late in the 3rd, but a 2pt conversion attempt would be intercepted and returned for 2 USU points to destroy the ULM momentum.

    With a 44-17 lead, the Aggies ran the ball, with runningback Jeremy Freeman scoring two TDs in the final quarter to finish the game. 58-23

    QB Adrian Sapp finished 12-18 for 315 yards and 4 TDs. The Aggies also ran the ball for 178 yards. Utah State wins their 2nd consecutive conference game and improves to 5-3. The Aggies now prepare to take on 11th ranked in-state rival Utah.

    Army Rolls the Dice
    Knocks off #7 WMU​
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another two Beast from the East took the field today in a back and forth game with little defense and both teams seemingly alternating scoring drives Army somehow came out on top in this C-USA game of the week.​
    WMU elected to kick to open the game and looked to have Army stopped on a 3rd and 8 but QB Barry Brunetti connected on his 1st of 6 TD passes of the day, hooking up with WR Jason Merritt on a 59 yard footrace (http://www.easports.com/dynasty#mod...19281C&dynid=21471&sku=662A0001&sid=4&wknum=7 1st video). Both teams defenses did what they could by at least making the scoring drives long, but neither defense could stop the other team as both teams alternated scoring drives until late in the second quarter, where Army Safety Patrick Sherman jarred the ball loose and it somehow ended up in DB C Grays hands (2nd video). Army capitalized off the turnover and scoring making it a two possession game, which they held going into halftime.​
    The 3rd quarter WMU adjusted their D and began to air the ball out, holding Army scoreless and adding two TD's of their own tying the game at 42 apiece heading into the 4th and final quarter. Army scored early and WMU quickly answered. They then held Army on 4th down for what seemed like the second defensive stop of the game for either team and began to march down field.​
    WMU crossed into Army territory but Bolden was then sacked on the next first down, pushing them into a second and very long. They made up some ground on a short pass play the next down but were facing a 3rd & 16. They again went for an underneath pass coming up way short, leaving it 4th & 12 for WMU on their opponents 31 yard line. Coach Nikpin having little faith in his 63 OVR true Freshman kicker elected to go for it on 4th and long and made a huge conversion as R Bolden connected with C May for 26 yards and the first down on the jump ball (4th video). Army's D was demoralized and couldnt catch up with a scrambling QB Bolden as he waltzed in from the 5 on the next few plays and gave WMU a 7 point lead with 1:59 left.​
    Senior transfer QB Barry Brunetti again took the field and lead his team on one last drive to try and tie the game to pull the upset. After leading his team down the field Brunetti had Army on the 1 with 31 seconds left. Having little success running against the WMU front Army's Brunetti caught WR Tyler Hall open in the flats to walk in for the score.​
    Here Army faced a decision. Would they go for the PAT and take the game into overtime against the #7 team in the country who was scoring at will in the second half, or roll the dice and leave it all on the line, going for the win right here. They elected the latter. Army came out looking to go for two, but the offense looked disorganized and Brunetti burned a timeout in a veteran move. "After that timeout I tried to talk myself into playing it safe," said Coach Hammons, "But I just couldn't do that to my guys. They came out here and layed it all out on the line on the road against the #7 team in the Country for 4 full quarter, and you could sense the team wanted it to be all left on the field, so we sent the Offense back out."​
    Brunetti came out and snapped the ball. He found WR R Carr sitting in a soft spot of the zone defense and zipped the ball in there, the 2 point conversion was good and Army had a 1pt lead with 31 seconds left (5th video).​
    Army kicked off, and shortly thereafter intercepted WMU's Bolden in his effort to bring his team down the field quickly, and the Army sideline could sense it. Brunetti stepped on the field, this time to Kneel it, and the clock hit 00:00 with Army on top 57-56.​
    This win moves the black knights to a surprising 7-0 on the year and 4-0 in conference play. The Black Knights square off with bitter rivals Navy next week and hope to be knocking on the doors of the top 25 ranking if they can pull out a win next week.​

    It was. After having that halftime lead I knew Nik would make it close and take it to the wire and thats what he did. One of the best games I've ever played without a doubt.

    Idaho pounds Memphis. After Memphis scored on the 3rd play of the game, the Vandals rattled off 45 unanswered for the 45-7 win. Lots of PT for the scrubs.
