    UNDERDOG UPSET

    The Oklahoma Sooners welomed the Kansas Jayhawks with open arms and sent them packing with their first loss of the season. The Sooners dominated the game from the very beginning, not yielding a touchdown until midway through the third quarter. The Sooners opened up the scoring when Brent Price connected with SO WR John Calhoun for a 49 yd TD. The Jayhawks were able to muster a FG in response after MLB Tyler Slaughter stripped the Kansas RB of the ball as he was about to plunge in to the end zone. The second quarter played much the same, as Oklahoma TE Steve Osborne caught two touchdowns from Price, and Kansas was only able to score on two more FG's. In the third quarter, the Jayhawks were able to gain some momentum and score some points thanks to a much more conservative gameplan that almost cost the Sooners the game. That being said, the Jayhawks were no match for the explosive Sooner offense that resulted in four huge TD plays, two from backup QB Logan Joseph, one from RB Sylvester Armstrong, and one from SR WR Kyle Walker. The score was not much of an indicator in this game, as the Jayhawks only showed life when the Sooners seemed to take their foot off the pedal.
    As has seemed to be a theme for Oklahoma University in year's prior, they are able to compete and or dominate against their smaller opponents, but have yet to crack the USER code. Catastrophy will have to strike in order for Oklahoma to find themselves in the BCS picture, but they should finish the year as one of the top teams in the SEC.

    Boomer Sooners roll up those Jay....hawks.

    Rivaly Week in Miami Gardens was a mismatch. FSU dominated Miami 56-28, as they move to 2-0 on the year in rivalry games. This game was considered FSU's final tough test as they've got some weak opponents coming up including hosting Wake Forest and Maryland. Marcus Johnson established himself as not just the #2 on the team, he stepped out and proved he can be the go-to-guy when they need him, hauling in 10 catches for 255 yards and 2TDs. A defense anchored by true freshman Patrick Dunbar was too much for Miami to get anything consistently rolling. FSU has one date circled on their calender and that is Week 14 when they host the rival Gators.

    Last year featured a game that looked like it could've went in FSU's favor until the Gators turned it up late. This was all in the Swamp so you can imagine Doak Campbell will be as loud as ever this year, as the team looks for any advantage to strike back in the rivalry. Florida has proven they can hang with anybody in the league, knocking off perrenial power Texas Longhorns earlier this year. A very balanced running and passing attack, dip and dunk offense will be up against the quick pace high octane west coast pass-heavy Seminole style, where you know where the ball is expected to go. The two teams have a good shot at remaining just 2-loss games going into it, so even more than just state pride is on the line. This game likely also carries heavy BCS implications on it with the winner likely able to finish their year on a positive note, with a BCS Bowl victory.

    It was a nail-biter in this heated rivalry between the Spartans and the Wolverines with Michigan leading the entire way until Michigan State QB Rob Young hit WR Trevor Russell from 6 yards out to take the lead with just :02 remaining. With all hope seemingly lost, Michigan QB Jon Huff connected with WR Matt Donaldson on a 75-yard bomb to stun the Spartans. Michigan came prepared with a game plan to beat Michigan State at their own game with a power running attack of their own as HB Brian Weldon had a career day rushing for 195 yards on 31 carries and 2 TDs.
    The Wolverines started very strong while opening up a 14-0 lead before the Spartans finally got on the board with a FG before Halftime. Both teams traded scores in the 3rd with Michigan holding on to a 21-10 lead heading into a wild final period, but the Wolverines seemed to take a conservative approach and opened the door for a Michigan State comeback. With the win, Michigan solidifies their hold on the B1G Legends Division.
    Next, Michigan goes on the road to face another rival in the Minnesota Golden Gophers
    Michigan State
    QB Rob Young - 16/24, 216 YDS, 2 TD, INT
    HB Avery Green - 17 RUSH, 101 YDS, TD
    WR Rich Chapman - 4 REC, 94 YDS
    OLB Shane Taylor - 5 TKLS, 2 SCKS
    Michigan
    QB Jon Huff - 9/14, 153 YDS, 2 TD, INT
    HB Brian Weldon - 31 RUSH, 195 YDS, 2 TD
    WR Matt Donaldson - 5 REC, 119 YDS, 2 TD
    DE Carlton Lawson - 4 TKLS, 2 SCKS, FF
