#3 UAB USES SECOND HALF SURGE TO DOMINATE #21 GEORGIA BULLDOGS 45-20


(DE TOM COX #55 CELEBRATES HIS THIRD SACK OF THE DAY, UAB SACK HOOD SEVEN TIMES)

BIRMINGHAM, AL. (AP)—When it mattered the most, No. 3 UAB made every yard seem like the longest yard for Lionel Hood and Georgia. Matthew Scott

rushed for a season high 210 yards, while receivers Ian Wilson, Ralph Rawls and Matt Ford hauled in touchdown recptions and the Blazers carried a second half shutout into the final minutes of the fourth quarter in a 45-20 win over the Bulldogs on Saturday.
Junior defensive end Tom Cox grabbed three sacks while Senior Kareem Kirby followed with two as the Blazers (9-0, 6-0 SEC) forced five straight three and outs stopped the Bulldogs three consecutive times on the two yard line and completed the goal line stand on fourth-and-1.

(#95 BRANDON RICHARDSON ALONG WITH #91 MARCUS LEAK AND #52 TIMI MCCOLLUM STOP GEORGIA'S FULLBACK ON FOURTH AND GOAL)

I think at that point, you just have to dig deep and just find something inside of you to not let them in the end zone,” Linebacker Timi McCollum said. “Let’s not make it easy on them.” McCollum only had four tackles but three were tackles for a loss.

A 14-13 halftime score indicated how competitive the game was, but Georgia came up with absolutely nothing out of a series of promising drives in the first half.

The Bulldogs (6-3, 5-2) were stuffed on fourth-and-1, after receiver Scott Davis hauled in what would be his only catch of the afternoon, a 35 yarder down to the three yard line. But Georgia who elected to run the ball four straight times could not pass through that tough UAB defensive front leading the nation in yards against the run.

(UAB DEFENSIVE PLAYERS CELEBRATE AFTER A SACK)

"Its a Identity thing," Sophomore defeinsive tackle Marcus Leak stated after the game. "That deep in your territory you wanna let teams know its gonna be tough to break through and we held our own against their big offensive linemen."

The Bulldogs got inside the UAB 35-yard line on each of their first five drives and then found a way to come up empty handed only gaining a D. Seward 19 yard field goal.

Sickening comes to mind because you know how important it is to punch it in in that situation,” coach Mark Richt said. “It’s not like you are going to pitch a shutout game against them but you certainly better match scores when you have opportunities and we didn’t.”

That’s nothing new for the Blazers.


UAB came into the game ranked 10th in the nation in yards allowed—and has consistently found ways to get critical stops when needed. The Blazers lead the nation in third down percentage on defense and held Georgia to 5 of 13 today.

Lionel Hood, who had a unforgivable game last year stated off hot for the Bulldogs completing his first 8 of 10 passes for over 200 yards in the first half but no scores to show for.
They didn’t want to give anything up to him,” UAB coach Travis Rhatigan said. “We talk to them all the time about fighting right ‘til the end.

The Blazers started a season with eight straight wins for only the second time in school history. The other time was last season, they went on to a 13-1 record and national championship appearance.

It’s a sweet feat,” said freshmen quarterback Adam ****s, who had 232 yards passing and three touchdowns without any interceptions.
I wasn't apart of that last year, so this run is really special to me right now”
Hood did throw for 349 yards and one touchdown but got that score on a 76 yard pass with a minute left in the game against UAB's second team. In a matchup of two of the nation’s top offenses, the Bulldogs’ second-ranked attack was outgained by UAB's unit 455-365 but the scoreboard was lopsided the opposite way. His favorite taget and SEC leading receiver Scott Davis was held to just one catch.

(FRESHMEN CONERBACK ANTHONY MCFARLAND BREAKS UP A PASS INTENDED FOR SCOTT DAVIS)

The score is crazy,” Hood said. “It looks lopsided but … if we don’t have finish in the red zone, it’s a whole new ballgame. That’s what we have to work on. We have to make sure we’re taking care of the ball and playing smart.”

A 73 yard touchdown run from Matthew Scott along with a 77 yard touchdown catch from receiver Ralph Rawls sandwiched a 6 yard rushing touchdown from R. Wilson to make the score 14-10 and with no time left after another red zone stop Georgia was forced to kick another field goal making the score 14-13 at the half.

UAB came out the locker room fired up in front of a announced record crowd of 67,836. Dyks would find Matt Ford on a deep post route down the middle of the field for a 74 yard touchdown on the halfs second play. The defense seemed even more rejuvenated in that third quarter after giving up over 200 yards in the air in the first half. UAB grabbed four sacks in the third quarter led by Kareem Kirby's two. Dyks would find Wilson for another score and just like that the Blazers took a one point lead and stretched it to a 31-13 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.
The Work horse Matthew Scott took over in the fourth quarter after yet another three and out from Georgia. Scott carried for runs of 20 yards 33 yards and he even bolted for a 67 yard score to ice the game at 38-13. Scott who many feel has a chance at the Heisman finished the game with 210 yards and two touchdowns. Its his fourth straight game over 150 yards.

UAB will get ready to host Tennessee next week. Kickoff is scheduled for noon. Georgia will head to Auburn.

Monday November 4th, 2013

Headlines:
  • #21 Nevada looks to rebound with #6 Boise State visiting
  • #10 OU prepares to keep pace with Oklahoma State as they face #24 Baylor on the road
  • Battle of Texas pits UT at TCU
  • ACC's Game of the week matches nations top backs as #5 Maryland travels to Boston College
  • National game of the week has #4 Illinois traveling to #2 Iowa
  • Lack of success for Noles has nation losing interested in FSU/MIA rivalry
  • WHO? Marshall is bowl eligible at 6-1 and on pace for a conference usa championship
Conference races heat up:

ACC
  • In the Atlantic Division It really comes down to this weekend's game between #5 Maryland and #11 Boston College. Boston College, led by running back M. Clifford has already lost a conference game but a win against Maryland and the second leading back in the ACC C. Sims would give them the tie breaker.
  • In the Coastal Division its coming down to a battle of the Tech's who will face each other next week. No team is hotter than the Hokies who have won five in a row since a five point loss to Maryland. Led by quarterback J. Carroll and a stingy defense the momentum looks to be Virginia Tech. Georgia Tech who is #17 in the country sits at 8-1 and could very well be 9-0 if it werent for a fourth quarter collapse against Syracuse two weeks ago losing 41-38. A very balanced attack will look to bounce back and claim the coastal crown.
BIG 12
  • In the North TCU seemed to be in control at 4-0 in the conference but a embarrassing loss to Tulsa (2-7) and a near loss to Kansas State in their past two games have the Horned Frogs seemingly losing momentum in their first year in the Big 12. They'll have to worry about a confident Iowa State team who is 6-3 and very capable of beating them the last week of the season and clinching the North title.
  • In the South there are three teams competing for the chance to go to the Big 12 championship. Oklahoma State and Oklahoma are both 4-1 in conference play while Texas is 4-2. Texas beat Oklahoma but lost to Oklahoma State, this may very well come down to a three way tie breaker if the Sooners can get past the Cowboys next week, but they first have to get by a good Baylor team this week if they do they control their own destiny.
Big East
  • As the Big East prepares for the conference's first ever conference championship game the North Division has already been clinched by Notre Dame.
  • In the South Division Troy, led by Matt Moore the schools all time leading passer has also clinched setting up a rematch of the September 21st game when Troy upset the Irish 31-22.
Big Ten
  • The Leaders Division is getting very interesting. Wisconsin started the season off to a hot start pummeling every team in its way. But then a injury to starting quarterback M. Weldon saw the Badgers lose two of their last three games including a embarrassing 34-7 loss to Purdue last week. They're chasing division leader #4 Illinois who came out of nowhere this year and are sitting at 9-0, 5-0 in the conference. Ohio State who started the season 1-3 has won 5 of their last 6 games and are now back in contention but they'll need help having loss to Illinois and Wisconsin already. Wisconsin needs Illinois to lose to Iowa this week to set up a showdown for the division title in the final week of the season.
  • In the Legends division Iowa is way out in front in the driver seat thanks to a huge 31-24 win last week against Michigan, despite facing Illinois this week and Wisconsin next week all they need is a win to clinch and set up a possible rematch in the conference championship between the two teams.
C-USA
  • The conference no longer has a conference championship game so the teams had to play it out this year during the season. With four games to go the conference is up for grabs but right now Marshall (6-1, 5-0) is in the driver seat After a huge win over Arkansas State (6-2, 4-1) 30-7. Southern Miss and SMU are also vying for a conference championship as they both sit at 4-1. All four of these teams face each in the final weeks in what should be a dramit finish to the newly designed C-USA
MAC
  • In the MAC its come down to a three team race led by 6-2, 4-0 Buffalo. A win over NIU a few weeks back gives them the tie breaker over the Huskies who sit in the conference at 5-1. Bowling Green is 4-1 along with Buffalo and their November 16th matchup could be for all the Marbles.
MWC
  • Boise State has clinched the North Division.
  • The South Division comes down to Nevada (7-2, 4-1) and Fresno State (9-1, 5-1) who play each other Nov. 15th. Nevada has a huge game against Boise this week and whether they win or lose a win over Fresno could give them a chance at a rematch in the conference championship.
PAC-12
  • Oregon has dominated the North Division for the last two seasons but this year they're tested by the Huskies of Washington. Both teams sit at 5-1 in conference play. A 28-14 win two weeks ago in which the ducks were down 14-0 gives them the tie breaker, but the up and down Ducks will need to win out if they want to continue rulling the North.
  • The USC Trojans look to be gaining momentum and getting back to the National spotlight. After beating second place Utah earlier this season the Trojans have two very winnable games and could be very well headed to a conference championship.
SEC
  • #3 UAB is one win away from clinching the East division. After a huge win over their toughest opponent remaining in Georgia UAB looks to have locked up the division.
  • With three games to play #1 Alabama is favored in all of them after a win at LSU all that remains is home game against Auburn. But if the Tide slip up to Mississippi State (6-3) this weekend that game will mean a lot more for the LSU Tigers.
BCS TOP 15
The BCS had some more shake up last week but the top 5 stayed the same. It was the bottom 5 of the top ten that had some re-arranging as LSU, Nevada and Wisconsin all took losses last week. The top 5 could take a hit as #4 and #2 meet up, as well as #5 vs #10. Here are this weeks BCS Standings.
  1. ALABAMA 9-0
  2. IOWA 9-0
  3. UAB 9-0
  4. ILLINOIS 9-0
  5. MARYLAND 9-0
  6. BOISE STATE 9-1
  7. OKLAHOMA STATE 9-1
  8. VIRGINIA TECH 7-2
  9. LSU 7-2
  10. BOSTON COLLEGE 9-1
  11. OKLAHOMA 7-2
  12. AUBURN 6-3
  13. OREGON 6-3
  14. UTAH 7-2
  15. TCU 9-1

THIS WEEKS TOP GAMES FOR
WEEK 12

#6 Boise State (9-1) at #22 Nevada (7-2)
Last year's 45-36 loss to Nevada still rings clear in the minds of the Boise faithful. The loss marked the first home loss in Boise in over five years. But this time Boise quarterback V. Alston vowed it will be a different out come. "We learned a lot from that game, and we'll be ready this time around."
Nevada limps into this game after a embarrassing loss to the hands of unranked Hawaii a week ago, in that loss Nevada's quarterback H. Martin, the MWC completion percent and TD/INT ratio leader was knocked out of the game and will miss atleast two more weeks with a turf toe injury after getting stepped on. Nevada still has a chance to ruins Boise BCS hopes however, expect a hard fought game.

#5 Maryland (9-0) at #10 Boston College (9-1)
A game the whole country has been waiting for. In a battle of the top running backs in the nation as well as a division title on the line this should be a classic. Despite being led by running back C. Sims on the ground Maryland has the #7 ranked passing attack in the country but to counter Boston College has the #4 rated pass defense led by Junior coner E. Taylor and his 5 interceptions. For Boston College running back Marcus Clifford leads the nation in rushing yards after a embarrassing outing at VTech a few weeks back he's gotten back on track. To counter Maryland has the #4 rated run stopping defense. Definitely a must watch on a weekend full of big games.



College Game-Day, Game of the Week

#4 Illinois (9-0) at #2 Iowa (9-0)
A possible Big Ten championship preview has two of the hottest team in the country playing each other this weekend. Both teams are almost a mirror image of each other. Some have Illinois Favored because of the play of quarterback M. Fenner for the year he has 2,226 yards passing with 21 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions. His favorite target is D. Taylor whose averaging 16 yards per catch along with 9 touchdowns. But the real season starts now for them as their next three games are against ranked opponents. Iowa has been sitting in the top for for the majority of the year Wins over Georgia, Mich State and Michigan have the Hawkeyes talking championship. They arent flashing in stats but they get the job done the Big Ten way. Should be a good one.

Other Games of Note:
#11 Oklahoma (7-2) at #24 Baylor (6-3)
Texas (6-3) at #15 TCU (9-1)
Arkansas State (6-2, 4-1) at SMU (4-4, 4-1)
#1 Alabama (9-0) at Miss State (6-3)
Washington (6-3) at Stanford (7-3)
#23 Indiana (7-2) at #19 Wisconsin

BLAZER WEEKLY

BLAZERS FOCUSED ON
TENNESSEE
Photobucket
(DEFENSIVE PLAYERS CELEBRATE A WIN OVER GEORGIA LAST WEEK)

Todd Smith - Athletic Media Relations:


BIRMINGHAM, AL -- The 3rd-ranked UAB football team practiced inside Legion Stadium Wednesday afternoon in anticipation of its Southeastern Conference matchup against Tennessee on Saturday. Head coach Travis Rhatigan commented that the team is excited to be back on its home field for second straight week.
"For what we ask of our players day in and day out, the schedule we ask them to keep and how hard we practice and grind, we feel our players are excited about being back home," Coach Rathigan said. "It's a great atmosphere. We're really looking forward to getting back playing on our field."
Coach Rhatigan also mentioned that he was impressed with the excitement and energy of the players in practice so far this week.
"We still have one more practice, and we're competing throughout the week," Coach Rhatigan said. "Yesterday we came out with a lot of energy, and today it was the same thing."
The energy level is up a few notches as UAB closes out its first every SEC season. A win this Saturday and the Blazers will clinch at least a share of the East division and a trip to the conference championship.
"We know whats at stake for us." Stated Rhatigan, " Our main focus is on the Tennessee Vols, they do have a good football team there."
Tennessee sits at 5-4 and 3-3 in the conference. Wins against a ranked Oregon team and a ranked Georgia team shows that the Vols can play football. They're are coming of a win over South Carolina a week ago 43-35.


Recruiting news:
Blazers had a huge week in recruiting as they invited seven recruits for official visits this past weekend. Of the seven five committed including another in state star defensive linemen Jonathon Barnes out of Prattville High School in Alabama.

(Defensive Tackle Jonathon Barnes)


Barnes is ranked third in the State of Alabama at defensive tackle and is also ranked in Alabama's Super top 50. He is the third defensive linemen from the state that the Blazers have received commitments from.
"Im all about winning, we're currently making a push to the state championship and UAB is making a push to the National Championship. My decision was simple."
He chose UAB over Georgia Tech and Miami.
Blazers also received commitments from Linebackers Terry Jackson and Bryan Ramsey as well as cornerback Timothy Rhodes and Offensive linemen Martin Gold all three stars. This brings the total commits to 8.

  • Martin Gold (G) 6'2 284 Midfield, AL
  • Terry Jackson (OLB) 6'3 220 Oakland Park, FL
  • Jonathon Barnes (DT) 6'2 282 Prattville, AL
  • Bryan Ramsey (MLB) 5'11 228 Aventura, FL
  • Timothy Rhodes (CB) 5'9 178 Jackson, AL
TENNESSEE AT UAB
Tennessee looks for the upset when they
travel to Birmingham Saturday.

At 5-4 the Vols are already looking ahead to next season, after a 3-1 start it has all went down hill from there, the problem has been a inconsistent offense. Tennessee ranks 10th out of the 14 SEC teams on offense and Senior quarterback Ryan Hicks is only completing 52 percent of his passes. Erik Webb has been the bright spot on the ground this year but teams have stacked the box against him and the Vols limiting some of his success. The Bright Spot for the Vols is a very good defense ranked 5th in the SEC overall. This is a very good tackling team led by the Bush brothers at linebacker both with over 50 tackles. hey dont get many sacks but this unit applies great pressure and it has led Nate Cooley grabbing 7 interceptions.
UAB is on fire right now, Matthew Scott has put up over 500 yards on the ground in the last three weeks and becoming one of the great backs in the SEC. Freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks has responded to his coaches since being limited with the playook a few weeks back and has been very efficient as it showed with a three touchdown performance against Georgia a week ago. The SEC's #2 rated defense #13 overall has been lights out as well the past few weeks. The Blazers have five players with at least five sacks so look for them to apply the pressure early and often against the Vols.

Re: "Dragon Breath" A UAB Dynasty (NCAA12)

Looks like the Top 25 heavy SEC is a good fit for the UAB Blazers. It's nice to hear my Herd is doing well in your dynasty. They have a young team so perhaps that is part of their success (they had a couple of years to improve.)

Who is starting at QB - Graham or Cato?

BLAZERS OUTLAST VOLS
TIMI MCCOLLUM GRABS UAB'S ONLY
INTERCEPTION IN FINAL SECONDS TO PRESERVE THE WIN.


____________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS____

BIRMINGHAM, AL--
Adam Dyks threw for 5 touchdowns, and Timi McCollum grab the game winning interception in the end zone to lift No. 3 UAB to a 49-42 victory against Tennessee on Saturday. The Blazers (10-0, 7-0 SEC) matched the best start in school history and survived quite a scare from Tennessee (5-5, 3-4), which had three shots at the end zone in the final 30 seconds.
Hicks was sacked by strong safety Dominic Rhodes but a second and goal on the 15 yard line saw back up running back N. Rich take a surprise draw down to the three yard line. Hicks would then try to fire a pass to E. Wright but linebacker Timi McCollum broke off his man leaping high for the interception. UAB's players rushed on to the field and dog piled McCollum, knowing their national championship hopes were still intact.
"You know the season's on the line, so we're definitely not going to back down
," Freshmen strong safety Dominic Rhodes said. "There's no way that we're going to just break and just let the game go out of our hands.
"We've got a great team and we fight hard and I'm proud of them."
All-America receiver Ian Wilson said who caught 2 passes for 73 yards and a touchdown, atoning for his three drops with a 53-yard touchdown catch late in the third quarter. He also caught the 20 yard third down catch setting up Rutledge's fourth quarter touchdown to put the Blazers up 14 with five minutes to go.

(IAN WILSON GIVES UAB BACK THE LEAD LATE IN THE THIRD QUARTER WITH THIS 53 YARD TOUCHDOWN RECEPTION)

Tennessee responded right back with a Hicks to Jenkins 42 yard scoring strike with 3:18 remaining. It was the second time the two hooked up giving Hicks his fourth touchdown pass of the afternoon and putting the Vols down seven.


UAB ran the clock down to 1:58 and Tennessee only had two timeouts left, a first down for UAB would seal the game. Without starting tailback Matthew Scott for the majority of the game with a groin injury Marcus Rutledge did not disappoint as he rushed for 131 yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns, but on a third and one Tennessee led by the Bush brothers would stop him in his tracks giving Tennessee a chance for a final drive to tie the game.


(THIS 42 YARD TOUCHDOWN TO JENKINS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER PUT TENNESSEE DOWN SEVEN POINTS)

Hicks drove the Vols down for a chance to tie - or perhaps go for the win with a 2-point conversion - by converting a fourth-and-4 with a quarterback keeper and then connecting with E. Wright for 22 yards to set up first-and-goal at the 5-yard line.

"We play for games like this. This is an exciting game and when it comes down to it, you've got to dig down deep and you've got to make a play," Tennessee's head coach said. "We did that all day but when it counted we came up short."

Hicks threw for the seconds largest total in Tennessee School history only behind Peyton Mannings 523 yards. He would finish with 443 yards passing with four touchdown and one interception.He also had two lost fumbles that resulted in two quick scores for the Blazers before halftime as they scored twice in the final fifteen seconds.


With starting receiver Matt Ford suffering what looks to be a season ending back injury, Ralph Rawls took advantage of the extra snaps hauling in 5 receptions for 83 yards but two huge touchdowns to close out the first half.

UAB capitalized on Hicks fumbles. With 20 seconds left Barnes, hit Hicks as he dropped back for a pass causing him to fumble, Barnes would also recover the fumble setting up a 28 yard touchdown pass to Rawls. With only 10 seconds left instead of running the clock out Tennessee would come out trying to throw this time defensive linemen Tom Cox and Brandon Richardson would sandwich Hicks forcing a second straight fumble that the Blazers would recover, setting up a 22 yard scoring toss from Dyks to Rawls with just two seconds remaining in the half.

--
(BACK TO BACK FUMBLES BY TENNESSEE QUARTERBACK HICKS SET UP CONSECUTIVE TOUCHDOWN CATCHES BY RALPH RAWLS)

Those scores were big for UAB, because instead of going into the half down seven, UAB went in up Seven and was able to match them score for score the rest of the way.


"
The one thing that I like about our team is they really don't flinch very much," UAB coach Travis Rhatigan said. "They just keep fighting. We gave up a ton of yards in the air but the final play we came up with the biggest turnover of our season."

Despite the success Tennessee had in the air, the Blazers were still able to grab seven sacks, the defense also forced three turnovers when they needed them.

"
In a perfect world, they're all going to be double-digit wins but it's not like that," Rhatigan said. "College football is just not like that. "In order to achieve a goal and win every game, there's going to be some close ones and there's going to be some games that show a lot of character.

Re: "Dragon Breath" A UAB Dynasty (NCAA12)



Mon November 11th, 2013

HEADLINES:
  • Hawkeys move to No. 1 in BCS, Bama drops to No. 9
  • UAB loses Scott and Ford for season.
  • Alston has Boise at No. 3, Heisman front runner
  • BEDLAM!!! No. 4 Cowboys set to due battle with No. 8 Sooners
  • NO DAYS OFF! No. 1 Iowa travels to Camp Randall
  • RIVALRY RENEWED: Irish ready for Big House experience
  • Hokies look to bounce back against 9-1 Yellow Jackets
  • NCAA announces Award Finalist: UAB's McCollum up for three
  • BCS MADNESS!! TCU 10-1 and out of top 10
BCS MADNESS:
What a week! Week 12 caused a lot of stir as top teams fell including No. 1 Alabama, No. 4 Illinois, No. 5 Maryland and No. 8 Virginia Tech. Iowa stayed in front of UAB and moved to No. 1. With Iowa and UAB the only undefeated teams left its reasonable to have them No.1 and 2. Boise jumped three spots to No. 3. The nation is wondering why TCU with a 10-1 record is behind (No. 7 LSU, No. 8 OU, No. 11 Oregon, and No. 12 Utah) Perhaps a Big 12 Title can change that. Here are this weeks BCS Top 15 rankings
  1. IOWA 10-0
  2. UAB 10-0
  3. BOISE STATE 10-1
  4. BOSTON COLLEGE 10-1
  5. OKLAHOMA STATE 9-1
  6. ILLINOIS 9-1
  7. LSU 8-2
  8. OKLAHOMA 8-2
  9. ALABAMA 9-1
  10. MARYLAND 9-1
  11. OREGON 7-3
  12. UTAH 8-2
  13. TCU 10-1
  14. MICHIGAN 7-3
  15. GEORGIA TECH 9-1
HEISMAN TALK:
A huge performance against Nevada catapulted Boise State's trigger man Vince Alston to the top of everyones Heisman list as well as draft board. He was magnificent against the Wolfpack throwing for almost 400 yards and five touchdowns. Running backs Marcus Clifford and Chris Sims still continue to perform at a high level as they both dueled against each other last week, despite losing Sims had the better performance. If Oklahoma State can keep winning, more importantly win this weekend against Oklahoma quarterback Alex Butler will contend with Alston as he leads the nation in a lot of categories as well as throwing for 433 yards in a 66 point outing last week. A injury to UAB's Scott has him off the list this week and probably the rest of the season as he may miss the final two games with a groin injury. Here's the top five candidates to this point.
  1. Vince Alston Quarterback Boise State
  2. Alex Butler Quarterback Oklahoma State
  3. Marcus Clifford Running Back Boston College
  4. Brandon Wilson Running Back TCU
  5. Chris Sims Running Back Maryland
RECRUITING NEWS:
  • UAB NABS FIVE MORE COMMITMENTS
  • NO. 1 RECEIVER COMMITS TO LSU
  • TOP RUNNING BACK ROSHAUN WALKER TO VISIT TCU
  • CALIFORNIA NO.1 ATHLETE CHOOSE DUCKS OVER NITTANY LIONS
  • USC NO. 2 RATED CLASS THUS FAR
WEEK 13 TOP GAMES:

#25 NEVADA (7-3) AT FRESNO STATE (9-1)
A heart breaking loss for Nevada last week to Boise has them in a must win against Fresno if they wish for the rematch in the MWC Championship Game. They;ll face a tough Fresno Defense ranked in the top 20 in the country in total yards giving up. Fresno also has a lot to prove as they bring in a 9-1 record and still arent ranked. Injuries to the running back core has saw Quarterback J. Wright Flourish throwing 23 touchdowns and only five interceptions. With Nevada giving up almost 400 yards in the air last week watch for the Bulldogs top attack them there. The winner clinches the MWC South Division.

#20 Wisconsin (8-2) at #1 Iowa (10-0)
Wisconsin looks to keep pace with Illinois for the Big Ten Leader Division as both teams are 5-1 in conference play. A huge win over Indiana last week in which Wisconsin rushed for over 300 yards have the Badgers confident heading into Iowa this weekend. Iowa got a very emotional win over Illinois a week ago in which they drove the ball the final three minutes of the game and scored the go ahead touchdown. They look vulnerable last week but with the tough win another week at home look for Iowa to be ready for Wisconsin tough attack. Possible Big Ten championship game preview.

#21 Virginia Tech (7-3) at #15 Georgia Tech (9-1)
The Hokies took a huge loss to North Carolina a week ago, most say they were looking ahead to the Yellow Jackets. Well now they have their shot as the winner will clinch the ACC Coastal Division. Quarterback J. Carroll will try and take advantage of Georgia Techs young depleted secondary. But the key will be if running back M. Morgan get run the ball on a yellow Jacket defense ranked fourth in the country against the run. For the Yellow Jackets its no secret their gonna run the football, but quarterback D. Brown leads the nation in completion percentage and has been very smart when they throw the ball as he has only thrown one interception to 123 touchdowns passes.



College Gameday Game of the Week
#5 Oklahoma State (9-1) at #8 Oklahoma (8-2)
The Big 12 South is on the Line when Bedlam starts. In a battle between the top two quarterbacks in the Big 12, Oklahoma State feels they have the advantage. Ranked No. 1 in points per game at 44.9 and the No. 4 total offense in the nation Oklahoma State brings a explosive attack, the concern is lack of pass defense for the Cowboys who rank No. 64 and 39th overall in total defense. That defense will have to stop a hot Oklahoma offense who has ripped off five straight wins since a lost in the red river shootout against Texas. Leading that offense is quarterback B. Johnson who has thrown for 2,715 yards and 28 touchdowns to only 4 interceptions. With him on a hot streak and and Butler facing the No. 5 defense in the country the tilt may go to the Sooners.

Notable Games:
#6 Illinois (9-1) at Indiana (7-3)
#17 Notre Dame (9-2) at #14 Michigan (7-3)
Buffalo (6-3) at Bowling Green (6-4)
