THE FALL OF TROY:

BLAZERS DOMINATE TROY IN SEASON OPENER 72-10

_____________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS

BIRMINGHAM, AL -
Troy fell today but no gift of a Trojan horse was needed Adam Dyks threw for 364 yards and six touchdowns and a swarming Blazer defense racked up five sacks a safety and a pick six as UAB dominated Troy by a score of 72-10 Saturday night at Legion Field.
With the complete performance, UAB improved to 4-0 in season openers since Rhatigan became head coach.

The Blazer's won their 20th-consecutive game at Legion Field. Dyks completed 10 of 21 of his passes and surpassed the 300-yard mark in the third quarter.

Sophomore receiver Travis Jackson was Dyks top target on the night, hauling in a career-high four receptions for 159 yards and three touchdowns.


(TRAVIS JACKSON HAD A BIG DAY FOR THE BLAZERS FINGER TIP CATCHING THIS 61 YARDER)

Senior running back Matthew Scott led the ground attack with 139 yards while backup Cody Gore rushed for 71 yards and a score.

The Blazer defense held the Trojans to only three points after giving up and touchdown on the games first possession. Troy got 266 total yards, with just 8 coming on the ground.

Sophomore defensive back Carl Holycross registered his first pick six of his career. Linebacker's Cortez Means and Timi McCollum were all over the field both recording four tackles and a sack.

--
(THE BLAZER DEFENSE LED BY CARL HOLYCROSS *LEFT* COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN THE TROJAN ATTACK)

The defensive line provided pressure the entire contest, as junior Phillip Mason and senior Tom Cox combined for 3.5 of the team's five sacks.

The Blazers set the tempo from the start, after giving up a 7 play 79 yard drive to Troy to start the game the Blazers needed only two plays as Dyks hit Matt Ford for a 16-yard touchdown, this coming after a 52 yard run from Matthew to start the Blazer drive.

UAB quickly struck again as Safety Carl Holycross ignited the crowd with his 32-yard interception return for a touchdown and the route was on, by the end of the first quarter UAB had a 28-7 advantage, Ford would catch his second touchdown from 61-yards out and the Blazer took a 42-10 lead into the half.


"It was like letting the dawgs loose."
Senior linebacker Cortez Means said after playing his first game in Legion Field. "We felt disrespected coming into this season not ranked, so believe we have a chip on our shoulder."

UAB picked up where it left off to begin the second half, as the Blazers forced Troy to a third and 24 backing them up on their own two yard line, Troy would try to run for room but Tom Cox blew the play up as running back John Heinz tried to cut back, fellow defensive linemen Marcus Leak would finish the play dragging him down in the end zone for a safety.

"We were fired up today thats for sure."
Safety Dominique Rhodes stated. The defense wasn't finished, the Trojans would get the back but would have to settle for a 48 yard field goal attempt the kick was short and corner Vince Jones scampered for a 100-yard touchdown to push the Blazer advantage to 51-10.
--
(FIVE SACKS AND MULTIPLE HURRIES HAD TROY QUARTER B. WALL ON HIS BACK MOST OF THE GAME)

Dyks would hit Travis Jackson a few more times for score before he was pulled as the back up got some much needed experience. UAB rolled up 592 total yards without committing a turnover or getting a sack against the Trojans. The defense also held Troy and their fast paced offensive attack to just 3 of 14 on third downs.

"This is my first head coaching job, but I've been the coordinator here for a few years."
Said Troy head coach Jonathon Gray. "I'm telling you, this is the best looking team I've faced in a few years. Rhatigan has a good team over there and the country better take notice."
UAB travels to Columbus next week to take on the No. 22 ranked Buckeye's at 3:30 p.m

TOP GAMES WEEK 2
#10 Illinois (0-0) at Iowa State (0-0)
The Iowa State-Illinois matchup might not generate as much interest as LSU-TCU game, but this one has a lot of intrigue. Iowa State is coming off a bowl win and hope to continue the momentum. The Cyclones crossed a big hurdle by beating TCU to end the season. Head Coach Brennan Taylor's team finally looks ready to contend in just his second season. Illinois has a young team and will be starting a new quarterback after Fenner graduated, but is a dangerous team and one that could contend in the Big Ten Leaders Division, they hope they can grow fast and continue the recent success. This game could be decided by whichever offense imposes its will. The Illini will be more physical, while the Cyclones are more finesse, wanting to run an up-tempo attack.


UAB (1-0) at Ohio State (0-1)

A team that stood out from Week 1 was UAB. Quarterback Adam Dyks threw for 364 yards and six scores, the sophomore looks more refined and on track to do some good things this year, Heisman candidate Matthew Scott continues to look good but this Blazer defense looks really solid. They face a Ohio State team this Saturday looking to save face. A embarrassing loss to Navy has Buckeye nation grumbling. The good thing coming out that game was running back T. Clark who rushed for 213 yards, he'll need an even bigger day against the Blazer defense.


USC (0-0) at #5 Boston College (0-0)
The Golden Eagles will be hosting this at Alumni Stadium at 8:00 ET in a game televised nationally on ESPN. This is a case of an underrated team taking on an overrated team. Boston College went a surprising went 12-2 last season thanks to the legs of Marcus Clifford. John Williams replaces him this year and looks to continue the success, he's coming off a 935 yard 5 touchdown season in a back up role, expect him to shine. USC's quarterback Mark Price comes into his senior season looking to bring the Trojans back to prominence. He'll have back with him running back John Clancy and a very experienced defense. If the defense can get a hold of
Williams and company the Trojans could pull the upset.





#7 LSU (0-0) at #8 TCU (0-0)
Itís only Week 2 of the college football season, but the LSU-TCU matchup could go a long way toward deciding the favorites for BCS Title opportunity. The Tigers have the edge in playmakers, They bring back quarterback Adrian Porter, the Junior brings in much needed experience and poise at the crucial quarterback position Jonathon Harris will be is go to man as they connected for seven scores last year. As always LSU is loaded on defense. The defense is sprinkled with junior and senior starters along with sophomore all american ss Cornelius Blanchard. TCU, just two years removed from a national championship continues to try and establish themselves as a perennial top 10 team. There is no doubt the type of speed this TCU team has, but the lack of experience may give LSU the edge.

BLAZER WEEKLY



Blazers defense ready for the Horseshoe Challenge:
Birmingham, AL - The Blazers are coming off a huge 72-10 win over rival Troy a week ago where they held the Trojans scoreless the whole second half. This week they head to Ohio State to take on the Buckeye's. Despite Ohio State's upset loss to Navy the Buckeye's proved they could run the ball. This Blazer defense has definitely taken note.
"They have some big boys up front, and they opened up some nice lanes last week." Linebacker Timi McCollum stated.
The Blazers have emphasized stopping the run this week and playing sound defense in a tough environment.
"This is probably one of the tougher environments this team will be in this year." Said Head coach Travis Rhatigan. "It's key to stop the train before it gets going."
Senior Running back Tim Clark is coming off a 1,400 yard season and more importantly a 213 yard game. At 6'0 244 pounds possessing speed (95) and quickness (99) he can break one at any time.
"Its starts with us up front." Senior defensive end Tom Cox said. "We are responsible for staying in our lanes and squeezing the gaps so our backers and defensive backs can make plays."
You can see the Blazers take on Ohio State this saturday at 3:30 on ABC

Rhatigan Speaks to the Media about last week's win:

On what winning the first game means
"I know it sounds like coach speak, but it was important because it was the first game. I actually talked to the team on Monday about enjoying this victory but when we come back Tuesday we have to focus on this week. That one is important because it is the second opportunity to show who we are. It's a big win. It's big for our fans, our community and our university."

On the athleticism of the defense
"It's still early so we can improve, but the experience is definitely there, the guys had fun out there and flew around. I was impressed but dont tell them (Chuckling) I like how Holycross controlled his secondary, they faced a fast paced offensive attack and he made all the right checks and coverage calls.

On the balance of execution
"We talked about establishing a identity, we have so many athletes this year and speed, so we want to spread it around and keep defenses off balance as we did against Troy. Dyks played his best game since being our quarterback and he can only improve from here.

WEEK 2
BLAZERS HEAD TO COLUMBUS FOR
BIG ROAD TEST
Matchup Preview | September 6, 2014
@
UAB Blazers
(1-0, Away)

Ohio State Buckeyes
(0-1, Home)



Head Coach Travis Rhatigan Speaks about upcoming game vs Ohio State:
"We are looking forward to the next test, Ohi State. They are 0-1 overall and obviously Luke Fickell will have those kids ready for us. Ohio State is a very physical team with good speed. I watched them on film no we watched them on film a few times, I dont see how they lost to Navy quite honestly and I told my guys to not over look this team. We understand our work is going to be cut out for us. It is going to be a great test for us. Our football team must focus on that opponent and get ready to play. Again, it is different. It is not the speed nor the ability of the teams we have seen in the past. It is a little more physical brand of football that we are going to have to be prepared for. I look forward to the challenge and enjoy the fact that we are undefeated, and I want to stay that way."

THINGS TO WATCH ON UAB:
  • Adam Dyks, can he handle the crowd and manage the game
  • UAB's defensive line, how will they fair against a big offensive line
  • The linebackers will need to wrap up
  • Can the UAB offensive line keep Adam Dyks protected
THINGS TO WATCH ON OHIO STATE:
  • How will the team bounce back after losing to Navy
  • Ohio State rushed for over 400 yards last week, Tim Clark is key
  • Can Bobby Sanders make plays with his arm
  • Free Safety Darrius Rice will be key to stopping UAB's passing attack

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

I ****ing hate how the cpu can catch a drag route and turn it up for 30 yards but if I complete one I have to stop and pivot to cut up the field
