ORANGE RIVER BLOWOUT
LONGHORNS RUN AWAY FROM SOONERS 42-20
  • DALLAS, TX - It was the Sooners rushing for over 200 yards not the Longhorns who lead the country in rushing yards per game. However the teams somehow switched identity and Texas quarterback Ismael Cross threw all over the Sooners for 334 yards and accounted for five touchdowns. A pick 6 followed by a Cross 20 yard option keeper and the Longhorns erased demons from five straight Red River shootout losses. The Longhorns move to 6-0 while #3 Oklahoma falls to 5-1

TOP GAME FOR WEEK 8


#15 Stanford (5-1, 3-1) at Washington (5-2, 4-0)
On paper Stanford is the more dominate team but after a upset loss to unranked Arizona a week ago, Washington now looks like a viable threat to Stanford. With Cal and Oregon seemingly running away with the North division Washington will have a major say if they beat Stanford. Consistent play from quarterback J. Harris and a solid run game from T. Johnson has the Huskies thinking upset. Stanfords D. Paris should be licking his chops however, a poor Huskie pass defense could have the quarterback who has thrown 16 touchdowns to just 3 interception in for a big day.


#1 Oregon (5-0, 2-0) at #21 Utah (5-1, 2-1)
Utah will look to bounce back after a poor effort against Cal last week. This time around they get to host. For Oregon this could be a test as Utah matches up very well against the Ducks. The Utes may find trouble on offense again this week as the Ducks bring in the nations 5th ranked pass defense. Sophomore quarterback Brandon Harris has done a good job in handle the nations number one team. Expect a hard fought effort from the Ute's.


#13 Auburn (5-1, 2-1) at Florida (5-1, 3-1)
The Gators were a hot team the first five games then ran into a upset LSU team in death valley. Now they get to be the upset team as they host the Auburn Tigers in the Swamp.
The second leg of a three game death trip has the Gators confident than ever led by a strong and active defensive line. Theyll need to get after it because Auburn brings in a tough rush attack with Eddie White in the backfield. Quarterback Jeff Darby brings in a dual threat style as well. If Florida is to have a chance they'll need to protect the quarterback. Florida gave up seven sacks a week ago. Another top flight SEC matchup should be interesting to watch.



COLLEGE GAMEDAY GAME OF THE WEEK
#4 Michigan State (5-0, 2-0) at #22 Michigan (4-1, 1-1)
For the most part little brother (Michigan State) hasn't had a challenge yet beating the likes of Purdue and Eastern Michigan as well as teams who are having down years like Arkansas, Penn State and West Virginia. Michigan on the other took #3 Wisconsin to the wire before the Badgers pulled away late. A key part in the Spartans early season success has been quarterback A. Jacobs. He's been very efficient with his passes completing 68 percent while throwing 14 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions. His receiver N. Merriman has found ways to make the big catches as we saw him do in a two point win a week ago against Purdue. J. Miller for Michigan has been equally as good but has been even better on his feet. The Wolverines bring the one two punch of Miller and running back Q. Washington if they can get rolling Michigan State better watch out.


OTHER GAMES OF NOTE:
Hawaii (4-2) at Air Force (4-1)
North Carolina (4-2) at #7 Georgia Tech (5-0)
#24 Mississippi State (3-2) at Texas A&M (4-1)
Nevada (5-1) at Boise State (5-2)

BLAZERS IN TOP 10:
BLAZERS COME OUT OF THE BYE WEEK
RANKED NO.8 IN THE LATEST AP POLL

BIRMINGHAM, ALA-
As the Blazers started practice on Monday, there was a bit of excitement in the air. The UAB Blazers moved up seven spots in the AP despite playing a game. "I wish it was that easy." Chuckled head coach Travis Rhatigan. "There were a lot of good football games on this past weekend and they had a lot to do with us moving up."
Rhatigan is referring to the games of Oklahoma, Stanford, Miami and Boston College. All which had been in the top 15 three of which in the top 10. "That just goes to show, we have to take care of business, or we may be the next upset victims."
The Blazers practiced two days last week before heading home for the fall break. They Practiced lightly on Monday and got back after it fully padded on Tuesday and today Wednesday. They'll shut it down Thursday before a scheduled walk through on Friday. The Blazers will face a 3-3 South Carolina team that has under achieved. Game is slated for a 3:30 kickoff on ESPN.



NO. 8 BLAZERS PLAY HOST TO SOUTH CAROLINA
Matchup Preview | October 18, 2014
@
South Carolina Gamecocks
(3-3, Away)
#8 UAB Blazers
(5-0, Home)

Birmingham, Ala - The UAB Blazers are back in action Saturday as the South Carolina Gamecocks visit Legion Field for a 3:30 p.m. CT kickoff. The game will be televised on the ESPN Network and will also serve as UAB's 2011 Homecoming Game.
The Blazers (5-0, 3-0 SEC) are coming off a 49-3 win two weeks ago against Auburn. Coming off the bye week UAB has the No. 1 overall defense led by Defensive end Tom Cox and his 12 sacks.
South Carolina (3-3, 2-2) comes to Birmingham fresh off a 52-16 victory over Kentucky last Saturday. Cougars' QB Case Keenum threw for 534 yards and nine TDs in the game, while WR Patrick Edwards had seven catches for 318 yards.
Keenum needs 267 yards passing on Saturday to break the NCAA career yardage record of 17,072 which Is currently held by former Hawaii QB Timmy Chang.
The Cougars are currently ranked No. 1 nationally in total offense (612.4), passing offense (453.3) and scoring offense (52.3). Their average margin of victory in eight games is +27.5 (52.3 - 24.8).
Houston is looking to 9-0 in a season for the first time in school history.

"Coming off a bye week you look to see whose in shape who worked out the little things. We cant afford to slip up this week." Stated head coach Travis Rhatigan.
The Gamecocks are led by running back John Waters whose averaging five yards per carry and a little under 100 yards per game. Receiver Brandon Perkins is their most viable threat. The conference leader in yards is averaging 17 yards per catch. He had a 90 yard touchdown reception a few weeks back against Alabama.
"We know Bama is down this year, but South Carolina went into Tuscaloosa and handle business. We have to keep a eye out and know where Perkins is at all times."
With a good offense however comes a very bad defense for South Carolina giving up 372.6 yards per game. The problem is they dont force turnovers through six games they have only six takeaway's.



THINGS TO WATCH ON SOUTH CAROLINA:
  • Receiver Brandon Perkins, He's the Gamecocks big play receiver and leads the conference in receiving yards
  • Quarterback J. Pittman decision making against UAB's defense, he's turned the ball over 11 times this season
  • South Carolina's defense, will they get pressure and force turnovers
THINGS TO WATCH ON UAB:
  • UAB has a whole, will they come out with that same intensity after a bye week
  • UAB's defense, will they pressure Pittman or sit back and allow him to make mistakes
  • Adam Dyks has been on fire will he avoid the careless interception
  • Will the Home coming crowd affect the Gamecocks as they did Auburn

GRINNED OUT

(GORE BREAKS OFF THIS 75 YARD RUN THANKS TO THE BLOCK FROM FRESHMEN FB BRAD FRYE)
RUNNING BACK CODY GORE AND HUGE DEFENSIVE FOURTH QUARTER HELP BLAZERS TO 34-17 WIN

______________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS____


Birmingham, Ala - A balanced offense and bothersome defense helped the UAB football team return home in style Saturday with a 34-17 win over South Carolina. All wasn't well for the 8th-ranked Blazers. Battling a 16 mile per hour cross wind and rain, South Carolina gave the Blazers everything they could for three quarters.

"We needed a game like that, (smh) I told them if they look past this team they could beat us, and they almost did," UAB head coach Travis Rhatigan said with a irritated mind state.
Quarterback Adam Dyks did as much as he could throwing two touchdown passes to receiver Travis Jackson. But two red zone interceptions helped keep the Gamecocks in the game.
"I knew the wind would affect our passing game and Cody Gore stepped up big time for us in the second half." Said Rhatigan.
Ever since taking over the starting job in week three Gore has performed. He finished with 158 yards rushing and two scores on 22 carries. It was the fourth game in a row that the versatile runner had hit the 100-yard mark, he would've had a third touchdown after breaking for 66 yards but a clipping penalty nullified the score.
As for the receivers, RS- Freshmen Travis Jackson grabbed a game high 153 yards receiving just four yards shy of his career high he had during the season opener against Troy. Matt Ford re-injured his back, a injury he sustained last season that saw him miss the rest of the year. More word on his later this week.
While the Jackson's number's state a big day, the next receiver was Dan Sims who had three catches for just 21 yards.

The defense once again turned in a top notch performance forcing four turnovers and grabbing four sacks.
"When the game is close and we need a play I expect one of us to make a play." said free safety Carl Holycross, who forced a fumble and also deflected a pass that turned into a Adam Love interception.
Senior defensive end Tom Cox once again lived in the offensive backfield as he registered two sacks of his own. The consistent pressure from him and the defensive line was just too much for the South Carolina offensive line.
"We made it real simple for those guys," Cornerback Adam Love said. "We'll worry about the receivers you guys just pin your ears back and get after them."
Love and Cox both had five tackles on the day. Love held the conference leading receiver to just two catches batting down three intended passes his way.

It took UAB less than two minutes to get the scoring started. Dyks would fire a pass down the seam that saw Travis Jackson extending and making a great grab for the score. But the Blazers wouldn't reach the end zone again until the fourth quarter. Defensively it didnt matter the defense constantly gave the Blazers opportunities forcing two fumbles in the first half and would eventually go into the half up 10-3.

(FORCED FUMBLES BY LOVE AND HOLYCROSS HELPED UAB HOLD ON TO A 10-3 LEAD HEADING INTO HALFTIME)

With the score set at 10-3 to open up the third quarter and virtually no offense out of the Gamecocks the first two quarters, the Gamecocks came out throwing desperation heaves. It took them just three plays to go 86 yards to tie the game. Do it all receiver Brandon Perkins grabbed a 80 yard catch and run before finishing the drive on a four yard touchdown catch in the back of the end zone. It was the first touchdown pass the Blazers had given up all season. Just like that it was a game. South Carolina defense finally stepped up forcing two straight three and outs before UAB finally got 42 yard field goal from freshmen S. Jordan. South Carolina now had all the momentum heading into the fourth quarter and the Gamecocks did something no team has done all year which was score two offensive touchdowns on the Blazers when running back John Waters took a first down carry and sprinted 75 yards for the score.
--
(THE GAMECOCK PLAYMAKERS PUT IN BACK TO BACK SCORES MAKING IT THE FIRST TIME A UAB TEAM HAS TRAILED IN THE FOURTH QURTER THIS SEASON)

It was the first time the Blazers had trailed in the fourth quarter all season long.
"It was like a punch to the gut, like no way this isn't happening." Said quarterback Adam Dyks.
The Blazers didnt panic, instead of the usual three and four wide set the Blazers came out in a three back power I set. starting on their own 18 yard line. Two straight hand offs saw Gore nearly break the second after a 8 yard gain. Then on the third play of the of the drive Gore broke for 75 giving UAB back the lead 20-17.
"My Oline and fullbacks get all that credit, all I had to do was take the hand off." Gore said after running through a gaping hole.
With the crowd back into it the defense went back to their usual ways, a first down interception by Adam love set up a 40 yard touchdown reception off the playaction to Travis Jackson. Up 10 the Blazers got back to back sacks and on third down set up another interception, this time by Harvey Nelson. The Blazers would ultimately try to run out the clock but a powerful running game saw Core run in his second score and clinching UAB's win 34-17.

Despite the close game the Blazers defense held the Gamecocks to 1-6 on third downs. just 200 yards before giving up that 75 yard rush.
Next up for the Blazers is a 12:30 home game against Kentucky next week.

RETURN OF DOMINANCE:
SEMINOLES RETURN TO THE NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT COMES WITH HARD WORK
  • Tallahassee, FL - It's been a while since the Seminoles seen this type of success, in fact this is the best season the Seminoles have had since Jimbo Fisher has taken over. The Seminoles have the second ranked offense in the ACC and the third ranked defense. More importantly they have a opportunity at their firs trip to the ACC championship in years. With wins over Virginia Tech and Miami a win over Pitt this weekend could all but seal the deal. The Seminoles are back.
AROUND THE NCAA:
  • Rogers and the #4 Golden Bears continue to shock the college football world
  • Hawkeye's/Badgers open up 1 and 2 in the First BCS poll
  • Blazers Tom Cox having record type year for sacks (14) in 6 games
  • Canes ready for the Georgia Tech Challenge
  • Game of the week puts #13 Pittsburgh at #22 Florida State
  • Spartans hope to bounce back against a tough Irish team
  • Texas A&M looking to take control of the SEC west at Auburn this weekend
  • Davis the reason! Iowa No. 1 and looks to stay there


BCS TALK:
  • The season's first polls have come out and so far its been a wild college football season. Iowa has found themselves back to the No.1 spot followed by division foe Wisconsin. The two will meet on the season finale Nov. 29th in Iowa City but right now they both have to survive whats left of a tough schedule. UAB despite being in the last two national championships opened the season unranked. But a unruly defense has the Blazers opening up at No.3. This years surprise start off with No.'s 4 and 5. Those being Cal and Texas who both looked like they could very easily be No. 1's. Its the midway point in the season with a lot of big games left to play. Here are the first BCS rankings for 2014:

TOP GAMES FOR WEEK 9


Arizona (4-2, 2-1) at #7 Oregon (5-1,2-1)
The invincible cloak Oregon had on for the first 8 weeks of the season has now wore off and with Arizona feeling a bit upsetty the Ducks may have another problem. Arizona upset Stanford a few weeks back at Stanford. But the "Zoo" poses a different challenge for the Wildcats. They'll face a angry Oregon team who was completely shut down by Utah last week.Quarterback Brandon Harris will need to be better than his 3-15 day a week ago and Arizona will need to be sound to match the speed of the Ducks backfield.


#14 Miami (7-1, 4-1) at #16 Georgia Tech (5-1, 3-1)
The #3 rush offense (GT) meats the #1 Total Offense (Mia) Georgia Tech is trying to stay atop the ACC Coastal Divisionas they are in a three way tie with one loss Miami and Virginia Tech. The Hurricanes stumbled on the road a few weeks back to the Seminoles and face a similar challenge this week. They have to contend with the ACC #1 defense the Yellow Jackets give up only 289.3 yards a games the bend but dont break defense has forced a ton of FG. But if Miami is Smart they'll study GT's loss last week to North Carolina. They ran the football and gave GT a dose of their own Medicine. Miami has the athletes but do they have the will.


Texas A&M (5-1,4-1) at #12 Auburn (6-1, 3-1)
Right now LSU is still the favorite in the west but a down year for Bama makes it a little easier for the other teams. The other teams are the Aggies and the Tigers. A&M has rebounded nicely from a dismal first year in the SEC and a win over Auburn can catapult them to being the contender in the West. Auburn's lone loss came by way of #3 UAB but that hasn't stopped them run producing the top rushing offense in the SEC led by tailback E. White. He will be key to Auburn's success and his play will open up the playaction quarterback J. Darby has excelled in. The Aggies play defense which is ranked 3rd in the always tough SEC. Cornerback C. Bellamy has truly been a lock-down corner and is tied second with 4 interceptions the Aggies are tied in the SEC with 13 overall interceptions with non other than the Tigers from Auburn, who makes the most defenisve plays win this one.





College Gameday Game of the Week


#14 Pittsburgh (6-0, 5-0) at #20 Florida State (6-1, 4-1)
Pittsburgh has made their living on the road this season as they've won four of their 6six games on the road. But Tallahassee is different says Seminoles defensive tackle Andy Clark who leads the team with 6.0 sacks. In fact the Seminoles have four players with at least 5.0 sacks. While Cornerback Tyler Marshall is securing the air ways with his 4 interceptions.
The Seminoles are long ways from the team that lost 31-24 to Syracuse earlier this season with wins over #20 Virginia Tech and #13 Miami they understand big games. Pittsburgh however has quietly been brewing a lethal storm since joining the ACC a year ago, Their clam to fame are wins over the Tar heels and BC. Quarterback Brent Cowan has been as precise as anyone throwing 13 touchdowns and just two interceptions more importanlty he's only been sacked only 8 times this season. When he has time Sophomore Josh Hopkins is usually on the receiving end. The defense is solid ranking them second in the ACC behond hard nose linebacker R. Hardy. This game is for first place in the ACC Atlantic division.
