    MTSU drops road game to Kent St. 28-3

    kentstate.PNG

    MTSU couldn't capitalize on scoring chances and lost their third in a row to open the season. MTSU received the opening kickoff and drove to the KS 30 yard where the drive stalled. The long FG attempt came up short. On KS first offensive play CB Khari Burke drilled the running back in the flat and forced a fumble to set up first and goal from the 9. MTSU wasn't able to cash in and had to settle for a FG and its only lead of the game. The Blue Raiders were able to limit the KS raid offense for a few drives, but ultimately KS got it rolling and they couldn't be stopped. MTSU's rushing attack was held in check all game and the passing offense was hurt by untimely drops. MTSU was only able to gain 121 total yards in the game. "I know we were credited with 6 drops, but our receivers have got to help out the QB more. I counted atleast 10 balls that fell off of their hands onto the turf. I need guys to buy into what we are doing here at MTSU." The schedule doesn't get any easier as MTSU plays BCS opponents Tennessee and Georgia Tech the next 2 weeks.

    tbishop82 pretty much covered the game. The Blue Raiders had a great defensive plan and kept my Kent State Raid in check for most of the 1st half. But in the 2nd the half the Raid found its rhythm and started to fire on all cylinders. The key to the game had to be Kent St QB completing 21 of his 29 attempts for 255 yards while his counter part at MTSU was 7 of 20 for 83 yards.
    The Golden Flash need to focus on getting their ground game revitalized as they only produced 72 yards on the ground. But alot of the has to go as credit to MTSU as they refused to let the Flash run the ball consistently.
    Again good game tbishop82 and I look forward to the return trip next season.

    Buffalo Picks Up 1st Win Of The Season
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Las Cruces, NM - After 2 disappointing losses to start the season, the Buffalo Bulls were hoping to rebound against an opponent more on their level. The may have been the hope but it ended up being quite the fight with New Mexico State. Both teams had a chance to win this one as the game went back and forth for the most part. It was never more than a 1 score difference on either side. Buffalo RB Branden Oliver proved to be a difference-maker as he ran for 222 yards and 4 TDs. The real key moment of the game came in the middle of the 4th when Aggie QB Travaughn Colwell was injured. This brought backup QB Andrew QB into the game and he was able to help a little bit as he led a TD drive and connected on a 2 point conversion to give NMSU a 35-28 lead. But in the end, he ended up costing the Aggies the game as he threw a Pick-6 with less than 1 minute remaining in the game. This gave Buffalo the lead and they were able to hang on.​

    Coach JVrazorback's San Jose State Spartans had there hands full with coach OnIowa's Minutemen coming too town. The Spartans started off with a long touchdown drive that ended with a Dasmen Stewart TD pass to TE Ryan Otten for 12 yards. UMass responded by taking the ensuing kickoff to the house on a 99 yard play by RB Allen Williams. SJSU scored back to back touchdowns on their next two drives to take a 21-7 lead that would stand until mid 2nd quarter. Umass closed the gap with a 4 yard Allen Williams TD run to make it 21-14 at halftime. The third quarter is when the defenses came alive, both teams combined could only muster a fieldgoal by Umass K Caleb Violette to make it 21-17. In the 4th quarter Umass added another fieldgoal and found themselves down by just one point. On SJSU's next possession coach JV put the ball (and quite possibly the game) into the hands of RB Tyler Ervin and he did not disappoint, as he ran the ball down the field and then punched it in from 11 yards out to give the Spartans a 27-20 lead (failed 2 point conversion). Umass was unable to score after a long drive. Time expired with Umass in the redzone knocking on the door. Umass can hold their heads high after a great game where there really was no losers.
    Great game OnIowa!
