RUNNING THE REBELS

BLAZERS AND THE HOME CROWD SHOW NO MERCY DURING A NIGHT OF MILESTONES BLOWING OUT OLE MISS 62-17


Birmingham, Ala - In what was supposed to be one of those heavyweight fight type of games UAB erased all doubts blowing out the Runnin' Rebels from Ole Miss (7-3, 4-3). But that wasn't the case early in the game when both teams left the first quarter tied at 10. "They came out and threw some haymakers." Head coach Travis Rhatigan said. His Blazers (10-0, 7-0) were without two key defensive players in cornerback Matt Gatewood and defensive end Scott Gaither both out due to suspensions. "But I like how we handled that and took the game over, we showed our depth and it looked really good tonight." The Blazers also helped by the 70+ thousand in attendance won their 30th straight home game. "Fuel is how I describe it." Cornerback Adam Love said, the NCAA interception leader grabbed three more tonight returning one 88 yards for the score he is now just three interceptions away from tying the NCAA career mark of 29. "I just love third downs, Our crowd really gets in to it, and coach gives me the green light." Linebacker Timi McCollum said who forced a fumble that freshmen safety Korey Rodgers returned for a 64-yard score, he also recorded 9 tackles and four sacks his fourth would give him the school's record for most sacks in a career with 40.0.

Offensively Adam Dyks over came a first quarter interception before firing five touchdown passes he would also go over the 10,000 yard mark for his career. Three would go to Matt Ford who grabbed a game high 244 yards receiving.
Tailback Lawrence Long chipped in with 71 yards on 13 carries and a score averaging over five yards per carry.

For Ole Miss they had the right gameplan against UAB, just give the ball to running back and Heisman candidate Kevin Reed who took a carry 80 yards early in the first quarter to put Ole Miss up 7-3. He would finish with 162 yards on 21 carries including a late 8-yard score giving him two on the day. Back up quarterback D. Colemen however needed to move the ball when UAB keyed on Reed. In return he threw four interceptions and no touchdown passes and was held to just 138 yards passing heading into the fourth quarter. He would have success against UAB's two's in the fourth finally reaching 315 yards.

UAB would start the drive off impressively marching 70 yards down the field on five plays but then went three and out in the red zone settling for a Shane Jordan 26 yard field goal. Reed and Ole Miss wasted no time out the gates he would take a sweep, cut up and back and sprint 80-yards for the score and like that Ole Miss was up 7-3. Then Dyks would start UAB's next drive with a interception, heading to the sideline with Boo's. Defensive end Wayne Joseph stepping in for Scott Gaither would grab a sack and another hurry would force Coleman to throw his first interception of the game, Dyks would lead another long drive this time hitting tight end Charles Randle for a 5-yard touchdown. Both teams would end the quarter tied at 10.

Matt Ford and Adam Dyks would take over in the second quarter. UAB's defense seemed to get a hold of Reed who went over 100 yards in the first quarter. That would force three and outs for the Blazers. Dyks hit Ford on scoring plays of 71-yards and 36-yards as he showed off his speed and ball awareness catching an impressive over the shoulder pass igniting the crowd. The defense was like a brick wall during the period forcing Ole Miss to a 0-4 showing on third downs during the period. UAB would head into the half up 24-10.

(FORD CONTINUES TO HAVE A STELLAR SENIOR SEASON HIS THREE TD GRABS GIVES HIM AN NCAA LEADING 14 ON THE YEAR)

Up two score's UAB knew Ole Miss was still essentially one big play from being back in the game. But on the half's first play corner Adam Love would grab his first of three interceptions jumping a quick hitch. "I read it all the way and bated the qb to throw it." Said Love, a senior who leads the NCAA with 13 interceptions. That interception would set up a Lawrence Long 6-yard touchdown run. Ole Miss would get a 42 yard catch and run from receiver S. Harris getting them inside UAB's 30 yard line for the first time all game, but Love made magic again when he intercepted Coleman but this time returning it 88-yards for the score. It was all apart of a 28-point third quarter run for the Blazers who got two more Adam Dyks touchdown passes to close out the quarter to Bill Cooley and Matt Ford which was his third of the game. The Blazers went into the fourth quarter up 52-10 in a blink of an eye.
--
(ADAM LOVE WOULD GRAB TWO OF HIS THREE INTERCEPTIONS IN THE THIRD QUARTER AND THE BLAZERS DEFENSE UNLEASHED A HARD NOSED ASSAULT ON THE REBEL'S DURING THEIR 28-0 RUN DURING THE THIRD QUARTER)

With the fourth quarter starting up 42-points the blazers would slowly put their two's in the game but not before Timi McCollum finished his last drive with two straight sacks and a forced fumble. He would force the fumble on Reed which was then recovered by freshmen free safety Korey Rodgers who scooped the ball up in one motion and jetted down the sideline diving in the end zone for a 64-yard fumble return then immediately getting mobbed by his teammates. The Blazers didnt stop Harassing Coleman either grabbing four fourth quarter sacks. When the final bell sounded UAB would get the win with a 62-17 thumping of Ole Miss.
--
(SACKS AND FORCED FUMBLES HELPED UAB CLOSE OUT THE REBELS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER DURING SATURDAY'S GAME)

"Just gotta love the emotion our guys play with." Head coach Travis Rhatigan said. " How about that kid Love? He sure can play." The Blazers held Ole Miss to just 4-12 on third downs while forcing five turnovers and grabbing two defensive scores. "The yard total hurts our defense, but not to many teams can say their defense is as good as ours" Free Safety Korey Rodgers said. Rodgers was put into the game early in the second quarter after starter Josh Brown received a high ankle sprain and looks to be out at least another game.
Next up for the Blazers is a home game against #9 Georgia (7-2)

ALL-NOISE:
#2 ILLINI GIVE UP LATE 21-7 LEAD TO MAGICAL BUCKEYE'S FALLING IN OT 27-24:
--
  • Champaign, IL - Number Illinois looked to have the game all but won after B. Spencer 49 yard fumble return put Illinois up 21-7 heading into the fourth quarter. But they forget how to finish a game, like they finished off Purdue or better yet finishing Michigan State in that wild game earlier this year. Ohio State's B. Sanders who had struggled all day throwing the football scrambled for a 78 yard touchdown run putting Ohio State down 7 mid way through the fourth. Just need a first down to seal the win Illinois was stuffed on 3rd and two and forced to punt, thats when B. Sanders went back to work, he would find B. Gold for a 41 yard catch and run with 51 seconds left to tie the game and send it to OT. In OT with all the momentum the Buckeye's held Illinois to to a field goal and on their first play of over-time the hot Sanders found Bradshaw in the end zone after scrambling to the left he would fire a rocket into the chest of Bradshaw for the win. "Speechless!!!" Head coach Urban Meyer said after the game. The win gave the Buckeye's their fourth straight win all by no more than 7 points to keep its Big Ten title hopes alive.

WE GOT OPTIONS:
YELLOW JACKETS MOVE TO #2 BEHIND TOUGH OPTION ATTACK AND STINGY DEFENSE:

  • Lately it seems like America has forgot about the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets who are 10-0 and now #2 in the current BCS Poll. Oh by the way not only do the Yellow Jackets sport the nations #1 rushing offense averaging 285.3 yards per game but they sport the nations top overall defense giving up 109.3 yards on the ground (#3) and 126.8 in the air (#1). But the Jackets are known for their option attack, three backs with over 700 yards and over 7 touchdowns anyone can go the distance. " We want teams to prepare for every aspect for us but we know they cant do that so thats what makes our attack unique." Head coach Paul Johnson said. Finally on the national scene his Yellow Jackets take on a tough Virginia Tech Hokies team this weekend but from the confines of their home stadium in a winner take all. The winner will represent the their division in the ACC title game. The Jackets hope to prove worthy of their #2 ranking. Here are this weeks BCS top 10 poll:
  1. UAB (10-0) 1.000
  2. Georgia Tech (10-0) .996
  3. Iowa (10-1) .994

  8. California (8-3) .986
  9. Texas (8-2) .986
  10. Ohio State (8-2) .985
AROUND THE NCAA:
  • Up to the Challenge: Georgia hoping for the upset of #1 UAB
  • Alabama woes now has Auburn back in the SEC West mix
  • TCU heads to Jordan-hare for big late season match up
  • Ohio State looks to keep Big Ten hopes alive against #3 Iowa

UTEP (8-2) at Hawaii (7-3)



GAME OF THE WEEK:
#23 Virginia Tech (8-2) at #2 Georgia Tech (10-0)
  • It's simple the winner clinches the ACC Coastal division and for Georgi Tech that means a chance at defending the conference crown. On paper the Yellow Jackets have the edge, an undefeated record, number one defense and a top rushing offense. But whats not stated is the heart these Hokies have played with since starting 0-2. They have ripped off 8 straight and a win over Georgia Tech would compliment the season. The Hokies can play defense too and linebackers Todd Smith and Nathan Wright better be ready for Georgia's option attack. This will be Georgia's first National game of the week, expect the excitement to be flowing in Bobby-Dodd stadium.

BLAZERS CONTINUE TO PREPARE FOR GEORGIA:
UAB IS PLAYING WELL RIGHT NOW BUT KNOW GEORGIA WILL BE READY TO PLAY:



Freshmen corner Matt Gatewood returns from suspension and has the tough task of covering Georgia's Jay Smith Saturday

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The Blazers escaped all the pressures of losing two key players last week after blowing out Ole Miss 62-17, but dont tell head coach Travis Rhatigan that. "We have some very talented kids here and it showed last week, but you never ever want to put yourself in a tough situation losing kids for dumb mistakes." Rhatigan's Blazers have been at it all week in preparations for the #9 Bulldogs. "This is a team that knows us very well. We went there last year and stole a win out their grasp." Rhatigan mentioned. He was referring to last years instant classic that saw UAB get a 71-yard touchdown reception from Bill Cooley as time expired seconds after the Bulldogs seemingly kicked the game winning field goal with five seconds remaining. "If we;re not careful and dont play smart they could return the favor easily, this is a good team we're facing." The Blazers finish up practice today before having a short walk through tomorrow afternoon. ---> http://www.operationsports.com/forum...post2043178633 <---- RECAP

Smith, who is rated the #22 overall player in the country had a soft commit to Alabama before his recruiting visit to UAB last weekend. "Watching them on TV is one thing, but watching them live in person with that fan base makes you want to be apart of something special like that, the visit was perfect, loved the town loved the pep rally and met with advisers which won over my parents." Smith said of his visit to Birmingham last weekend. " Wayne is a kid we had a late start on, just last month was when we first started giving him calls after recruiting another kid in his area We are excited to be able to get such a talented and bright kid." Smith chose UAB over Alabama and Oregon.

(GAME NOTES)
BULLDOGS HOPE TO EXACT REVENGE AFTER LAST YEARS LAST SECOND LOSS TO BLAZERS
-
UAB better have their guard up. The Bulldogs are a good team and nothing helps motivation out like revenge, a bad lost to Florida a few weeks ago has the nation forgetting about how good the #9 Bulldogs are. Defensively they are very sound and need to put pressure on UAB's Adam Dyks who has only been sack just 4 times all year, Andre Irvin will look to add to that he's third in the conference with 9 sacks. CB Brandon Bell is also a great cover corner that will hope to shut down a side and take away from Dyks Weapons. UAB defensively has struggled with the run but the secondary has been so good lately that it doesnt matter. Norton is a good back and will get his carries but quarterback Jonathon Jones needs to have a big day or at least a consistent day with no turnovers. Avoiding McCollum and company will be difficult but if he can do that look for Georgia to make it a game against the nations #1 team. For UAB they get both Gaither and Gatewood back this week, but lose free safety Josh Brown for at least another week with a sprained ankle so freshmen Korey Rodgers will need to play smart football. Offensively, the nations top scoring offense will need to protect Dyks against Georgia's fast pass rush if they can do that UAB should cruise to another vistory at home.

BLAZERS FIGHT BACK
Photobucket
BLAZERS SCORE THE FINAL 17 POINTS FOR HARD FOUGHT VICTORY 38-31 OVER #9 GEORGIA


Birmingham, Ala - The Blazers knew what they were getting into when the #9 Georgia Bulldogs came into town, after all they stole a victory right from the Bulldogs as time expired a year ago. Linebacker Timi McCollum willed a fourth quarter rally forcing a critical fumble to preserve the win for the Blazers. " When we focus and execute we are damn good." Defensive coordinator Frank Hickman said. His Blazers gave up 367 yards threw three and half quarters of football. " We bended greatly but we did not break. Im proud at the push and effort down the stretch to get this win." The win gives the Blazers sole possession of the SEC East crown and will find out next week if they face Auburn or Alabama for the SEC title.

What also helped UAB was Bulldog running back Brad Norton getting knocked out in the second quarter he already had 137 yards on just 6 carries. Back up D. Morgan went over 100 yards as well grabbing 131 yards on 20 carries but was routinely stuff on third downs in the second half. Quarterback Jonathon Jones was helpful throwing for 15-23 for 203 yards and three touchdowns but a crucial fourth quarter fumble proved costly.

For UAB Adam Dyks started slow, he would throw two early interceptions stalling the Blazers, but finished with 352 yards and three touchdowns of course his main target was receiver Matt Ford who recorded his second straight 200 yard game grabbing all three touchdown passes. Tailback Lawrence Long provided the balance on the ground gaining 116 yards on 12 carries including a 66-yard touchdown run to tie the game in the fourth quarter.

Georgia came into the game poised and primed for the upset and showed it early, a 6 play 82 yard drive ended on a B. Norton 11 yard touchdown pass putting Georgia up 7-0 early. As always the Adam Dyks led offense was ready to come back and answer but on the ensuing kickoff returner of the year finalist Travis Barnes took a huge hit from linebacker D. Wilson forcing a fumble and putting Georgia back on the field three plays later Jones would toss his second touchdown pass putting Georgia up 14-0 and thats how the quarter would end.

(THE BLAZERS WERE DOWN 14 BEFORE THE OFFENSE EVEN TOOK THE FIELD SATURDAY AGAINST GEORGIA)

The Blazers would finally get on track after seeing the field just twice in the first quarter that resulted in a 3 and out and a interception. The Dyks to Ford connection would get the Birmingham faithful back cheering after the Blazers got into Georgia territory, facing a 3rd and 15 Dyks would hit Ford who out ran the defense 57 yards for the score. The defense finally helped out but not before getting gashed by Norton and company, Nortan took a handoff for Georgia on the next drive and broke for 71 yards before finally getting ran down by corner Adam Love, linebacker Timi McCollum and defensive tackle Marcus Leak would help the Blazers hold Georgia to just three points after a 25 yard field goal by Seward. Dyks went back to work hitting receivers Bill Cooley and Travis Jackson for big gains before finding Ford for their second connection of the game this time from 26 yards out putting UAB down 17-14. Georgia stuck with the run and Norton broke for a 40 yard run before getting facemasked by freshmen free safety Kory Rodgers, the penalty moved Georgia inside UAB's 20 yard line but proved costly as Norton was injured on the play causing him to miss the rest of the game. Looking ready to increase their lead before the half Georgia's J. Jones forced a bad pass that was picked off by corner Adam Love in the back of the end zone and the two teams went into the half with Georgia up 17-14.

(TWO SECOND QUARTER TOUCHDOWN GRABS BY MATT FORD ALONG WITH A ADAM LOVE INTERCEPTION HELP UAB KEEP IT CLOSE AT HALFTIME)

The third quarter was like a cat and mouse game. Both teams would trade scores. Just when Georgia would get momentum UAB would storm back and vise versa. Back up running back D. Morgan would open the half out with two big time runs, a 30 yard toss, which was controversial as it seemed two key blocks were actually clips and then two plays later he would sprint up the middle running by an all out Blitz for the blazers resulting in a 55-yard touchdown run putting Georgia up 24-14. UAB would answer, Dyks would pump fake a quick pass to Lawrence Long out the backfield before finding Ford 75-yards for the score, it was the third time the two hooked up and Ford's NCAA leading 17th touchdown reception putting him just three behind school record holder Ian Wilson. The score was 24-21 Georgia and the crowd was back in the game, but the next drive was an unusual drive. It was the first time all day UAB looked like they could stop Georgia. But a penalty riddled drive extended Georgia four times on third downs that included two facemask penalties and two pass interference penalties and Georgia would cap the helped out drive with a 3-yard L. White touchdown reception which also drew a flag.
The Blazers didnt let that drive disappoint however, they seemed to have Georgia's defense figured out and thier defense finally was getting a hold of Georgia, the Blazers used the final two minutes of the third quarter to drive down the field and get a 3 yard touchdown run from back up Ellis Fox. The third quarter ended with Georgia up 31-28.

(BOTH TEAMS WOULD TRADE SCORES DURING THE THIRD PERIOD, BUT UAB SEEMED TO GET THE MOMENTUM)

The stage was finally set for what seemed to be and turned out to be a dramatic fourth quarter. It was UAB who would do the scoring tho during the fourth quarter. As the last drive showed the defense was finally on top of Georgia's scheme. Led by Timi McCollum who would finish the game with 12 tackles and two sacks focrced one of his two fumbles when he stripped D. Morgan on a critical third down and short. The Blazers didnt recover but it forced a Georgia punt. Down three and not in a rush the Blazers went back to the run game but this was after a booming punt that was down at the 12 yard line. Long who averaged 9 yards a carry gashed Georgia for runs of 14 and 18 yards, with the run getting huge chunks the blazers went back with it and the third consecutive play saw Long burst three the middle for a 66 yard scoring run giving the Blazers their first lead of the game. The fans went into a ruckus after the run as the teammates piled on Long, the Bulldog defenders looked tired and worn out. With under 2:00 minutes left the Blazers clung to a 35-31 lead and a pumped up defense hit the field. Jones was living off the quick pass all day as he worked UAB's zone but the Blazers came out in man press, that would buy time for the Blazers defense, Timi McCollum would perhaps make the play of the game when forced Jones who was scrambling to fumble the ball which was then recovered by linebacker Travis Jackson. The Blazers would run the clock all the way down to 15 seconds before Shane Jordan kicked in a 23 yard field goal putting UAB up 38-31. Two desperation heaves fell incomplete and the Blazers would hold on for the victory winning and adding to the nations longest home winning streak at 30 games.

(UAB'S DEFENSE LED BY TIMI MCCOLLUM FINALLY MADE THE PLAYS DOWN THE STRETCH TO PRESERVE THE WIN FOR THE BLAZERS)

"You could really feel the emotion after Lawrence broke that long touchdown run." Quarterback Adam Dyks said. "It was like ok we finally got the upper hand in this one, we just need to finish.
"All I saw was Mac given chance and then the ball popped out."
Defensive tackle Marcus Leak said. "If Jackson didnt jump on it, I was gonna scoop and score (Laughing)
"You have to really give it up for the fans, they were all the way tuned into this game. When Long went to the house it was chill bumps running across my bidy as I was helping him run home." An excited Head Coach Travis said.
The Blazers shut down Georgia attack in the fourth quarter and once again found a way to win the close one. Georgia won the time of possession but 10:00 Minutes but a 4-11 third down showing hurt them down the stretch. The Blazers were penalized 9 times for 120 yards but over came those with quick scoring strikes. The Blazers close out the season on Senior day next week against Vanderbilt.
