Hi, all I'm Erik Kuselias. Week 7 was once again a good week of college football as well as more news from Texas A&M.
Sunday, the SEC presidents announced their league intends to stick with 12 universities — for now. An A&M official said that marked the first official step in the Aggies’ shift to the SEC, as the two sides clearly established a timeline of events for legal reasons. As part of the process in establishing that A&M contacted the SEC first , Loftin said Monday he had “reached out to (SEC) commissioner (Mike) Slive by telephone” following a regents meeting. The SEC is currently looking for another team to join if they decide to add A&M but for now A&M will stay in the Big 12. Lets get to the headlines for the week.

FACE OFF SATURDAY:
  • Penn State holds on to beat Buckeyes 35-28
  • #7 Iowa needs a 44 yard field goal to beat upset minded Indiana 28-25
  • Arkansas edges Auburn on the road 27-24 on two field goals under two minutes left in the game
  • #2 Oregon survives a Trojan scare, win 26-28
NOT IMPRESSED?
  • UAB drops to #12 have impressive 49 point victory over ECU
  • Duke is 6-0 but not ranked
  • Nevada cries foul ranked 14th at 6-0
  • Fresno is ranked 24th at 4-0
  • As Baylor rises fast their rankings rise slow, sit at #17
  • KU will look to be ranked if they past the Sonner test this weekend, currently unranked at 4-0
TOP 25
  1. SOUTH CAROLINA 6-0
  2. OREGON 6-0
  3. LSU 6-0
  4. UTAH 5-0
  5. ARKANSAS 5-0

Week 7's players of the week goes to two C-USA athletes. On the Offensive side its UCF tailback Karl Smith. Against Marshall Smith rushed 31 times for 176 yards including five rushing touchdowns. Defensively the award goes to UAB middle linebacker Tom Slaughter, Slaughter grabbed 5 tackles and recorded 3 sacks. Of the five tackles four were for a loss. He also forced a fumble and recovered two others. Congratulations to these two guys.

How about a National Championship in the middle the season? #1 South Carolina travels to Baton Rouge to take on the #3 ranked LSU Tigers. Both teams sit at 6-0 and 3-0 in conference, something has to give plus this could very well be a SEC championship preview. South Carolina is currently on a 20 game winning streak while LSU is on a 7 game home win streak. Gameday will be there for this battle Saturday Night. Here are other top games this weekend.

Ole Miss (4-1) at #9 Alabama (4-1)
Oklahoma State (3-1) at #17 Baylor (4-0)
Kansas (4-0) at #8 Oklahoma (4-1)
#16 Miami (4-1) at Georgia Tech (4-1)

Thats all for this week, we'll see you next week.

BLAZER WEEKLY

HIGH STEPPIN' EXPECTATIONS
Photobucket
UAB'S SCOTT MENTIONED WITH THE NATIONS BEST
After another 100+ yard performance, UAB sophomore running back Matthew Scott is now in the Heisman talks. Several media outlets and coaches around the country are impressed with what he has done so far this season. Through six games he has rushed for 898 yards and 9 touchdowns, averaging 7.6 yards per carry.
"He's definitely coming into his own, the playing time he got last season was so important in his growth and his hard work is paying off."
HC Travis Rhatigan
The Blazers are 6-0 and ranked #12 in the country, as they continue to win his supporters will grow.

Slaughter named National Player of the Week!
Middle Linebacker Tom Slaughter rewarded for his performance against Conference foe ECU.

5 tackles, four for a loss, two fumble recoveries a forced fumble and oh yea, three sacks will get anybody a player of the week award. Slaughter has been very instrumental to this defense's success during his senior season. This is the second UAB player to get the award this season.

Head Coach Travis Rhatigan met with media on Tuesday to discuss the teams huge win over ECU as well as his thoughts on the first half of the season. He also talked about this upcoming match up with UTEP.

Opening Statement: First of I wanna congratulate our guys for the big win at home. We started this four game home stand off on the right note. Key players in the victory, obviously Slaughter and Bowser both setting examples as Seniors grabbing three sacks a piece. Our outstanding secondary play, they were all over everything. Offensively Scott with another big game on the ground, Smith threw the ball well, overall a great performance. We watched the film corrected a few things and now its behind us.

On his thoughts thus far: Im very pleased with our team right now, we're playing championship football, defense is lights out. Nobody is giving Wayne Smith the credit he deserves right now, through six games he has 20 touchdowns and only 5 interceptions and he's spreading the ball around to everybody. Scott has just went into another gear and when we need the tough yards he's able to get them. I think the win over Virginia Tech kinda boosted us to the mind set we're at right now, I mean we struggled heaviley in that game Smith had his worst game something like 5 for 20. But we showed that we can battle it out on the road in a tough environment and come out with the win. Dont get me wrong its just the mid way point, things will get tough down the stretch and we end the season on a four game road trip so, we'll have to stay focus and take it one game at a time.

On this weekend's game against UTEP: This is one of those trap games for us, its a home game but on film they're not to impressive. Meaning we may take them for granted. Their quarterback Castillo does everything for him so he will be our main focus, we stop him we stop them. I'm not to too worried from an athletic stand point but mentally we need to stay focused.

Game Notes
As Travis Rhatigan stated earlier this week, this could be a trap game for UAB. UTEP is a tricky team starting the season off 2-0 then losing three straight. UTEP is last in the conference in passing yards but quarterback Jeff Castillo will look to get back on the right track, he also leads the team in Rushing and is 5th overall in the conference. He'll have to try and sneak by the nations #1 rush defense as they will probably be licking their chops.
UAB may not need much in this game. Scott may be all they need and the starters can rest as I see the Blazers rolling in this one 60-10

UAB UNIVERSITY NEWSPAPER


SMACKED AROUND
UAB'S DEFENSE GRABS 10 SACKS AND BACK UP QUARTERBACK JARROD BRADLEY STEPS UP IN 45-6 WIN OVER MINERS


(FRESHMEN DEFENSIVE TACKLE MARCUS LEAK GETTING THE SACK AGAINST UTEP, UAB RECORDED 10 SACKS SATURDAY AFTERNOON)

___________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA--
Back up quarterback Jarrod Bradley passed for 288 yards and four touchdowns and No. 12 UAB beat UTEP 45-6 Saturday afternoon. After spending most of the season the bench, next years projected starter Jarrod Bradley was thrown into the fire after starting quarterback Wayne Smith injured his Big toe throwing a interception causing him to be out the rest of the game in the first quarter. The result was similar to if Smith was in.
Bradley was 13 of 24 with touchdown strikes of 69, 9, 59, and 25 yards. Brooks and Scott both added touchdown runs in the route.
"It felt good to get out there and play well."
Bradley said. " It was like if I were to get reps with the ones at practice, it also helps to have guys like Brooks and Scott in the backfield."
UAB (7-0) held the Miners (2-4) to just 133 yards of total offense.
UTEP's first drive was positive seeing the miners grab their only third down of the day before booting a 40 yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead and somewhat quiet the 57,000 in attendance at Legion Field. The field goal seemed to be the jolt UAB needed.
The Blazers needed just four plays to respond after Smith's injury Bradley connected with Senior James Moses for 62 yards down the middle. He put a double move and split the two defenders before romping into the end zone.
The Blazer defense quickly got the ball back after a sack fumble by Kirby that was recovered by freshmen defensive tackle Leak. Bradley then threw a 9 yard strike to Ross on the first play for the score.
In the third quarter, Bradley made a move worthy of Wayne Smith--if not quite Andre Sharpe--when he scrambled to avoid a rush and heaved a bombed to Moses for a 59 yard touchdown, it was the second time they connected for a score. The UAB receivers were led by Ian WIlson who grabbed 7 receptions for 92 yards while Michael Ross had 3 for 56 yards, Moses only had two catches but for a game high 121 yards. The crowd showed their appreciation after a slow motion replay. The play came on a third down.
--
(BACK UP JARROD BRADLEY DID HIS PART THROWING FOUR TOUCHDOWNS, TWO OF THEM TO JAMES MOSES)

Even though it would seem Bradley would be the story, tailback Matthew Scott and the UAB defense stole the show. After being knocked out for the rest of the first half, Scott would make the Miner defense pay with his elusive running ability. When he entered the Blazers were already up 24-3. Scott, the nations leader rusher only had 2 carries for 17 yards.

"Brooks was doing fine for us."
Stated head coach Travis Rhatigan. "He ran well and ripped off a nice scoring run, but Scott was ready to get in there so we put him back in."
In fact Brooks rushed 8 times for 71 yards while Scott was out. But when Scott came back he then chewed up big chunks of yards in the third quarter for the Blazers including a crowd pleasing 33 yard run that saw him break a tackle in the back field before hurdling a downed defender and hitting the sideline. Bradley would then play fake to Scott and hit Ross for his second score of the day, this time from 25 yards out. Scott then grabbed his 10th touchdown of the season after running right up the middle untouched for a 26 yard touchdown run. He would finish with 186 yards and a score.
--
(SCOTT CONTINUES TO HAVE A STELLAR YEAR RACKING UP ANOTHER 180 YARDS IN THIS ONE)


UTEP was just 1 of 12 from third down and quarterback Castillo was 8-22 as the secondary was knocking away each and almost every pass. The front seven wreaked havoc sacking Castillo 10 times led by the two defensive ends Jerry Bowser and Kareem Kirby as seven of those sacks came from them.

"I cant tell you how valuable Jerry Bowser is for us."
MLB Tom Slaughter stated. Slaughter recorded six tackles and a pass break up. "When Jerry gets going everybody eats."
Eat they did, freshmen defensive tackle Marcus Leak also grabbed two sacks.
--
(LED BY BOWSER AND KIRBY THESE TWO HAD 7 SACKS BETWEEN THEM. )


"You watch these guys on film and say they cant be that good, then you play them in person and your like wow they're freaking awesome."
A limber UTEP quarterback Castillo said during the post game press conference.
UAB increases their record to 7-0 and looks to move up in the polls. They have two games remaining in their four game home stand. Next week they face off with Memphis in the battle of the Bones.

Hi, again this is erik uselias coming to you with ESPN's College Football Live. We recap week 8 and give you a look into week 9's games. Also today is the first release of the 2012 BCS standings some onteresting rankings for the seasons first poll. But first things first we had a upset this past weekend, while some think it wasn't an upset, anytime #1 loses in my opinion its an upset. #3 LSU whooped #1 South Carolina all death Valley Saturday night. Lambert ran through the nations #2 rush defense for 175 yards and 3 scores. At one point was up 21-3 and 31-9 before holding off a furious Gamecock comeback eventually winning 31-24. The defending champs still have a shot at a title if they can win out as they hope to meet to LSU again in the SEC championship. LSU however has two more hurdles left still having to face #10 Alabama and #4 Arkansas. Will be an interesting stretch to end this season. Here are your Headlines for the week.

HOLDING FIRM:
  • ALABAMA OUT SHOOTS OLE MISS 59-34
  • DUKE ENTERS TOP 25 WITH 49-14 ROUTE OF FLORIDA STATE
  • #13 NEVADA AND #12 UAB STILL LOOK FOR NATIONAL RESPECT AS THEY BOTH IMPROVE TO 7-0 WITH CONVINCING VICTORIES
  • #22 FRESNO STATE STAYS UNBEATEN AFTER A THRILLER AGAINST AIR FORCE, WINS 35-33
  • WHO? BAYLOR STAYS PERFECT AT 5-0 WITH 41-32 WIN OVER OKIE STATE
  • #20 MICHIGAN THUMPS THE SPARTANS 40-17
  • KANSAS RECEIVES FIRST LOSS IN TERRIBLE 46-0 THUMPING BY THE HANDS OF THE SOONERS
This week's national players of the week go to Keith Pope of Maryland and Phil Hill of BC. Pope, who snagged the award earlier this year grabbed 9 tackles 4 for a loss and two sacks, along with a force fumble as well as a recovery for the score in Marylands win over NC State. Hill BC's senior tailback carried the ball for a school record 49 times, with those 49 carries he rushed for 270 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 44-14 win over Wake Forest.

The season's first BCS rankings are out and after the upset victory, LSU jumped to #1. Oregon who squeaked by Cal this week came in at #2. This years surprise team Arkansas got the #3 spot and Utah and Wisconsin rounded out the top 5. Here is 6 through 10
6. TCU 7-0
7. IOWA 7-0
8. South Carolina 6-1
9. Oklahoma 5-1
10. Alabama 5-1
Teams like #11 UAB (7-0), #12 Nevada (7-0) #15 Baylor (5-0) #23 Fresno State (5-0) and #24 Duke (7-0) will be this years teams to watch from non qualifying BCS conferences. I expect a lot of buzz as well as grumblings to come as the season goes on.
We dont have that monumental big game of the week, but we have some interesting match ups this week, with key story lines. Here are this weeks top games.

#15 Baylor (5-0 at Texas Tech (3-2)
As Baylor establishes themselves this Tech game is more difficult than the record shows. Baylor has a chance to get the upper hand in the conference leading to their showdown with A&M next week.

Miss ST. (4-2) at #1 LSU (7-0)
LSU is ranked #1 for the first time in a few years. All eyes will be on how they handle it. Will they carry a hangover to this Miss St game. The Bulldogs almost upset South Carolina a few weeks ago.

Ole Miss (4-2) at #3 Arkansas (6-0)
Ole Miss was on a 3 game win streak until losing a shootout to Bama last week. Arkansas is at home and could very well over look this explosive Rebel offense.

#20 Michigan (5-1) at Nebraska (4-3)
Michigan is 3-0 in the conference and can pull themselves ahead of the pack in the Big Ten. But Nebraska brings a 2-1 record in along with a 31-14 win against Penn State in husker country. Can Michigan over come the crowd and sneak out with a win?

We'll see you next week with scores and headlines, until then good night.
