    Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh
    Week 2 brought not only the start of the Big East conference play, but a very game rival in Pittsburgh. Both teams were able to run the ball up the gut, gaining solid yards, tiring out the opposing defense, and eating up time of possession. Cincinnati played a steady, plodding game, trying to run the ball early and often while mixing in short passes to the tight end and wideouts. Pittsburgh mainly relied on running the ball, an approach that Cincinnati was unable to stop virtually all of the game except for overtime. Many close calls for Cincinnati, including two fumbles overturned by the booth, and two inopportune penalties prevented Cincinnati from being able to pull away from Pittsburgh. In addition, their defense was spotty throughout the game, up until the fourth quarter, where a key stop was made on 4th down to give Cincinnati the ball with roughly 4 minutes on the clock. However, the Cincinnati drive stalled at the 39-yard-line with 1:44 left on the clock. There, a missed field goal by Tony Milano gave Pittsburgh one last opportunity to get downfield and tie the game up, which they thoroughly capitalized on.
    Overtime brought Cincinnati the ball first, where they continued to power the ball through the defense and eventually resulted in a 2-yard touchdown by Ralph David Abernathy. Pittsburgh recieved the ball next, and although they managed to get within 4 yards of the goal line, a stuffed option run for a 6-yard loss brought them back to earth, and on fourth down, a deflected pass bound for the endzone brought Cincinnati a narrow victory over their rival and settling the feud for another year.

    Week 3 Outlook:
    Cincinnati travels to Washington to face a tough opponent in the Huskies in what could be a game deciding who will move into or out of the Top 25. The Bearcats will need to create more pressure on the quarterback, shut down the run, and commit less mistakes if they want to continue their win streak next week.

    The Orange Escape with a win
    Kicker Ross Krautman converted on a 26-yard field goal with :02 remaining to help Syracuse stay perfect with a 20 - 17 victory over Maryland. It was back and forth all game long with neither defense giving up an inch as the Terps took a 7 - 3 lead into halftime, but both offenses were able to get a little on track in the 2nd half. Trailing 10 - 3 near the end of the 3rd, Syracuse finally got into the end zone and tied it up with a masterful 60-yard TD pass to WR Alec Lemon. Early in the 4th, the Orange were able to pull away by 7 and had the win seemingly well in hand but an ill-advised pass by QB Ryan Nassib was picked off and led to a game-tying TD for the Terps with just over 4 minutes remaining. However, Syracuse was able to put together a clutch game-winning drive in front of the home crowd.
    Next week, the Orange have a tune-up game against a FCS opponent as they prepare to go on the road to Minnesota to face the Golden Gophers in 2 weeks.

    Sun Devils out-ugly Fighting Illini



    It was rare ugly weather in Sun Devil Stadium Saturday night, but that seemed to match most of the play on the field. Still the home crowd helped carry their beloved Devils to a 24-7 victory over Illinois. The two teams traded touchdowns early in the first quarter before CB Alden Darby made the play of the game. Illini QB Nathan Scheelhaase ran to his left on an option play and attempted to make the pitch as he was being hit. Darby bolted in front of the running back and snagged the pitch in mid-air and from there, it was clear sailing to the endzone. This play seemed to put ASU in control of the game as the Defense put forth a strong showing pressuring the quarterback all game long, even knocking Scheelhaase out of the game.

    The offense, however, sputtered along as they had several dropped passes, bad reads and receivers slipping through their routes. QB Mike Bercovici had two passes intercepted after bouncing off the intended receivers hands and a third interception on an ill-advised deep throw. He did have a few shining moments as well though. He rambled for 67 yards down to the 2 yard line on an option keeper to set up the first Sun Devil touchdown. Also near the halfway point of the third quarter, he made a great audible to take advantage of an Illini blitz and was able to connect with WR Jamal Miles for a beautiful 50 yard TD.

    Middle Linebacker Brandon Johnson was named player of the game with 4 tackles, 2 for sacks, and a forced fumble. There was some bad news for an already dinged up defense though, as DE Carl Bradford was lost for the year with a broken collarbone. He'll join OLB Anthony Jones on sideline, as Jones is still recovering from a dislocated elbow suffered last week. Next week the Sun Devils travel to Missouri to face off with the Tigers.

    fordtuff504 dominates early...throughout!!​
    ISU takes care of USF in big fashion. The Cyclones took a huge 28--0 lead with only 2:33 left in the second quarter. They scored in all types of fashion: Barnett's 30 yd and 9 yd passes, an Aaron Horne 11 yd scamper, and an unbelievable 107 yd missed FG return by James White. USF looked to be down for the count until two quick and impressive drives under two minutes. BJ Daniels tossed two scores one to Vic Marc the other to Sterling Griffin. It appeared the game was back in business. That is until the opening half kickoff, which was taken to the house for 101 yds by Jarvis West. The teams exchanged a field goals to make the game 38-17. The fourth quarter was exciting as the two defenses both made big plays. The Bulls failed to capitalize on a fumble and interception. The game ended 41-24.​
    The game seemed to be close at times, but a blowout at others. fordtuff504 played tremendous defense, and his offense was tough to stop. He capitalized on mistakes made, and that made a huge difference. Great game all around! Special teams seemed to be a key factor. USF showed signs of immaturity and ISU seemed to be on point for the majority of the game. Can't wait for a rematch!​
