53083k_lg.jpegUtah 28, Colorado State 24 ... In a wildly entertaining game at Robert Rice Stadium, Utah remained undefeated with a win in a dramatic finish. The game saw five lead changes, three in a fourth quarter that saw 31 total points and a shoestring, game-saving tackle at the half yard line that saved the Utes. Colorado State (3-2, 2-1) led 14-7 before Del Rodgers exploded through a tight hole and raced 47-yards to tie the game. Rodgers would give the Utes the lead on the next Utah possession on a 31-yard run as he finished with 202 yards on 26 carries. Colorado State kicked a field goal on its next possession and on the first play from scrimmage after the rams score, Utah's Tyce Ferguson was intercepted and the Rams regained the lead with a 28-yard pass from Terry Nugent to Jeff Raikes. The see-saw game moved towards Utah (4-0, 1-0), when the Utes  systematically marched through the Rams defense and scored on a 5-yard run by Carl monroe with 3:23 left. The Rams, however, were not finished as Nugent drove Colorado State to the Utah 2-yard line before a sack pushed the Rams back to the 12 and with the clock running down to its final seconds, Nugent hit Jeff Champine on a crossing pattern. The Rams top receiver shook a tackler at the five, buit was tackled from behind and dragged down inches from the goal line in a wildly controversial finish that saw Colorado state head coach Leon Fuller sprint from the sidelines to argue the call and had to be restrained by his assistant coaches and several players. Utah dominated the game, out-gaining Colorado State by a more than a 2-to-1 margin (522-246), but three turnovers and 13 penalties for 106 yards kept the Rams in the game.

4DD3A4A4E7A9EF3F7EA8DB868BDD.jpgBoston College 38, Temple 27 ... Boston College spotted Temple a 17-0 first quarter lead and trailed 27-7 at halftime thanks in part to five turnovers, but Doug Flutie fought the Eagles back to a stirring win in Chestnut Hill. Flutie was picked three times in the first half and the Eagles fumbled twice to go along with five penalties as everything went wrong for Boston College in its attempt to remain undefeated and ranked in the Top 20. However, in the second half it was Flutie who sparked the comeback. Flutie scored on a 5-yard run, the second of his three rushing touchdowns in the game and after an interception gave BC the ball inside the Temple 20, Stephen Strachan jaunted in from 10-yards to brings the Eagles within six points. Boston College (4-0) stopped Temple on its next series before Flutie again rallied the Eagles, culminating a 59-yard drive with a 1-yard dive on the first play of the fourth quarter, giving Boston College a 28-27 lead. The stifling Eagles defense grew stronger and stopped Temple (3-2) on 3-and-out, setting up Flutie for a 41-yard scoring strike to Paul Zdanek as the Eagles held a 35-28 lead with 9:20 left in the game. Temple's offense, which amassed 342 yards, mostly in the first half, sputtered once more just after crossing midfield as Temple quarterback Tim Riordan suddenly could not find an open receiver. Riordan was 17-for-36, but only completed five passes in the second half. Flutie finished 12-for-28 for 263 yards and added another 72 on the ground.

Mark-Rush.jpgMiami (Fla.) 42, Louisville 14 ... Keith Griffin rushed for 146 yards and scored twice while Speedy Neal added 139 yards and a score as Miami routed the hometown Cardinals. The Hurricanes scored five rushing touchdowns as reserves Mark Rush and Albert Bentley also found paydirt  in Miami's most dominating performance of the year. Jim Kelly hit nine different receivers as he threw for 186 yards on an efficient 20-for-24 afternoon. Miami (3-2) scored on a 1-yard run by Griffin in the first quarter and then added a pair of scores in the second half as griffin pounded in for his second 1-yard run before bentley rushed in from 3-yards out on the next possession. Miami took a 28-0 lead in the third quarter when Kelly connected with Lawrence Thompson on a 10-yard scoirng pass before the teams exchanged scores in the second half. Louisville (1-3) was never in the game as they committed four turnovers as they could never establish a flow on offense. Miami held the Cardinals to just 3-of-9 on 3rd down conversions. 

Rutgers 50, William & Mary 14 ... The scarlet Knights won for the first time as they ran over William & Mary (0-4) in Piscataway. John Burke ran for 108 yards and Bryant Moore rushed for 107 yards as Rutgers (1-3) put up 363 yards on the ground. Rutgers scored first on a safety and Jacque LaPrairie 1-yard run. The Scarlet Knights pushed the lead to 26-0 with a 17-point surge over the final seven minutes of the first half. LaPrairie threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Eric Johnson and Moore scored on a 7-yard run before a field goal at the gun ended the barrage. The assault continued when Moore scored the second of his four touchdowns on a 41-yard run for a 33-0 Rutgers lead. Moore would score on a 6-yard run in the third quarter and a 4-yard run in the fourth to set the Rutgers record.

Army 6, Harvard  3 ... In a torrential downpour at West Point, Army used an interception by Gary Bastain to set up the eventual game-winng field goal as the Cadets took down Ivy League Harvard at Michie Stadium. With neither team able to muster any offense, the game was a back-and-forth struggle at midfield until Army struck with just over five minutes remaining when Bastin picked a ball that deflected off a Harvard receiver at the Crimson 37-yard line and returned it barely inside the Harvard 25 yard line. After three negligible runs, Craig Stopa kicked a 37-yard field through a slicing wind and pestering rain for the eventual game-winning kick. The weather dominated the action as both teams were held under 200 total yards while combing for 16 punts. Remarkably, considering the weather, there was only one turnover in the game.

cdd360297283b66d0b75f192d6cd819af92394af.jpg?x=208&y=260&sig=bedffeef18d0f16448004f89710c59b9Maryland 29, Syracuse 28 ... In a desperation game for both teams, Boomer Esiason threw a touchdown pass with less than two minutes left and the Terapins risked a tie by going for, and converted a 2-point try to silence the Carrier Dome crowd. Maryland (2-2) took a 14-0 lead on a pair of Willie Joyner touchdown runs. Joyner, who rushed for 78 yards on 16 carries, scored on a pair of 3-yard runs to quiet the crowd. Syracuse answered back early in the sedond quarter with a Todd Norley to Mike Morris 10-yard pass. Dave D'Addio punched across Maryland's third touchdown from the 1-yard line as the Terps led 21-7 at halftime. Syracuse and Norley put their 2-minute drill into effect before halftime and scored with :24 left when Norley flicked a 2-yard shuttle pass to Jamie Covington to bring the Orangemen within a touchdown. After a scoreless third quarter, Syracuse tied the game on Norley's third touchdown pass, a 3-yard corner fade to Marcus Hackett with 12:11 left. With the momentum squarely with the Orangemen, the Syracuse defense stopped Maryland and took the lead with a 19-yard run by reserve back Larry Morris. With nearly half the fourth quarter remaining, Maryland marched conservatively down the field, twice converting on third down and finished the drive when Esiason hit Russell Davis with a 2-yard pass to bring the Terps within a point. Head coach Bobby Ross called back the kicking team and successfully ran a sweep for a 2-point conversion. 

Virginia Tech 14, Wake Forest 3 ... Virginia Tech overcame a 3-0 halftime deficit with a pair of touchdown runs in the second half to keep the Demon Deacons winless while keeping the Hokies hopes for a bowl game alive. Virginia Tech running back Billy Hite scored on a 4-yard run in the third quarter and Randy Jamison marched through the Wake Forest defense into the end zone on a 2-yard plunge midway through the to complete the scoring. Neither team did much offensively, especially in the clutch as Wake Forest (0-5) was 1-for-14 on 3rd down while the Hokies (3-1), did not fare much better, going 3-for-14 on third down. The Virginia Tech defense held Wake Forest to just 183 yards in total offense and just 44 yards on 27 carries. Hite led all rushers with 83 yards. Wake Forest is alreay just one loss away from being ineligible for a bowl game. 

duke.jpgDuke 40, Navy 35 ... Duke needed a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns by Greg Boone to hold off a pesky Navy squad. While Duke's speed on special teams was too much for  Navy, the Midshipmen's near perfect wishbone caused massive headaches for the Blue Devils as three Navy players rushed for over 100 yards. Napoleon McCallum ran for 184 yards ion 25 carries, while Rich Clouse rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Marco Paganelli also ran fo two scores while compiling 107 yards. The game did not begin on a positive note for Navy as Duke (4-0) scored 10 first quarter points and went ahead 17-0 on an 18-yard pass from Ben Bennett to Mark Millitello. Navy got their offense straight on the next possession and scored on a 2-yard option run by Marco Pagnanelli. The Midshipmen's excitement was thwarted when Boone took the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a 24-7 lead. Duke would add to its lead when Navy punter Mark Colby shanked a 3 yard punt and Duke Capitalized as Bennett struck for a 43-yard strike to the speedy, but seldom used Chuck Herring for a 31-7 lead. Navy quickly struck before halftime as Pagnanelli and McCallum sliced the Blue Devils defense on a 55-yard pass before Clouse took a pitch and scooted 8-yards around end to cut the Duke lead to 31-14. Navy (1-3) used another big play as Pagnanelli fakes a pitch and ran 42-yards to cut the Duke lead to 10 points. McCallum scored on a 30-yard run with 13:12 left and Navy fought back to within a field goal. Once again, Boone stole the show. After squibbing a kick on the prior kickoff, Navy kicked to Boone who took the line drive kick at the 12 yard line and broke right to the far sideline and outran a bevy of would-be Navy tacklers. Boone would finish the day with a record 217-yards in returns and two scores. The missed extra-point made the score 37-28 in favor of Duke. Navy, however, once again used their unstoppable option to drive for another score, Clouse again gave the Midshipmen a touchdown, racing 36-yard untouched around end to come within two points. Navy stopped Duke, but for the first time in the second half could not move the ball.  The Blue Devils would seal the game with a 22-yard field with :46 left. Navy finished the game with 419 yards on the ground and 547 total yards, Duke had 297 yards of offense, 132 rushing and 165 passing.

Clemson 9, Kentucky 3 ... Terry Kinard intercepted a pass and returned it 60-yards for a touchdown with 1:32 left in the first quarter and that was all the scoring Clemson (2-2) would need as the Tigers held off Kentucky (0-4), as well as dismal weather conditions in Death Valley. There were nine combined turnovers, five by Clemson and four by Kentucky as neither team's offense found the end zone. The Tigers defense stuffed Kentucky and held the Wildcats to 93 yards of offense. Clemson took its 7-0 lead until the third quarter when their defense defense contributed a safety for a 9-0 advantage. Kentucky got on the scoreboard at the 10:34 mark of the fourth quarter when Chris Caudel made a 33-yard field goal, but that was the closest Kentucky would come to a score the remainder of the game. Clemson defensive tackle had two sacks.

neb.jpg(3) Nebraska 24, Auburn 14 ... Mike Rozier rushed for 122 yards as Nebraska handed Auburn its first loss of the season. In a very clean, well-played game, Nebraska (3-0) jumped out to a 7-0 first quarter lead and never trailed as they kept their national title hopes alive. The Cornhuskers were fresh off a 24-24 tie at Penn State had had to travel to the harsh Jordan-Hare Stadium and quickly established the tempo of the game. Rozier scored the Huskers first touchdown, but it was the reputation of the Nebraska defense and the control of the line of scrimmage when Nebraska was on offense that swayed the game. Auburn (3-1) rushed Lionel James and Bo Jackson a combined 17 times for 79 yards, nearly five yards per carry. But, the effective rushing attack of Nebraska forced Auburn's hand as quarterback Randy Campbell was 12-for-18 for 139 yards and a touchdown. Campbell hit Tommy Carroll with a 10-yard score just before halftime, bringing the Tigers to within seven points, but Nebraska scored on its first possession of the second half on a Jeff Smith's second touchdown, a short plunge that extended the Cornhuskers lead to 21-14. With Nebraska keying on Rozier and Craig, Tim Jessie scored on a 7-yard run to again bring Auburn within a touchdown. The Tigers needed a stop, but Nebraska pounded the ball for more than seven minutes and Kevin Seibel split the uprights from 27 yards for the final margin. 

North Carolina 21, Georgia Tech 7 ... The Yellow Jackets bid for an upset was short-lived as defensive back Walter Black single-handedly punctured the Georgia Tech's hopes with a pair of interception returns for touchdowns within a 1:45 span of the first quarter. At the 9:14 mark, Black picked Jim Bob Taylor and returned it 20-yards. On Tech's next possession, Black swiped the next Taylor pass at the 7:29 mark and returned it 33-yards for a 14-0 lead and essentially giving the game to the Tar Heels. North Carolina (2-2) intercepted Taylor three times after stuffing the Georgia Tech rushing attack. The Tar Heels limited Tech to 20 yards on 30 carries and forced Taylor into 35 passing attempts. William Fuller had two sacks for North Carolina as the Heels registered four sacks. The Georgia Tech (2-2) defense had a solid game as they held down Kelvin Bryant, allowing the all-conference back to 47 yards on 16 carries. 

Virginia 10, North Carolina State 6 ... Virginia pulled off the biggest upset in the ACC thus far as they shocked the Wolfpack at Scott Stadium. Beneath grey skies, Virginia (1-3, 1-1) limited North Carolina State (3-2, 1-2) to just two first quarter field goals and 200 yards of offense. With Wayne Schutts struggling and having thrown an interception, Virginia brought in Mike Eck to pilot the offense and the reserve connected with Nick Merrick on a 4-yard pass to give Virginia a 7-6 lead with 8:43 left in the first half. Eck played the remainder of the first half before giving way to Schutt in the second half.  Schutt led a 64-yard drive that led to a 25-yard field. After beginning the season with three consecutive wins, the Wolfpack lost to Maryland last week and have likely lost a chance at the ACC crown. 

missst.jpgMississippi State 10, (15) Georgia 3 ... Mississippi State pulled off a major upset and likely knocked Georgia out of the Top 20 with a 10-3 win at Scott Field. Rain throughout the week provided miserable conditions as the teams played through a continuous mist and mushy field conditions. Georgia took a 3-0 lead in the first quarter on a 29-yard field goal by Kevin Butler. The Bulldogs (2-3, 1-1) defense limited Herschel Walker to just 90 yards on 28 carries with a long of only 11 yards and kept the Georgia rushing game to less than three yards a carry. Meanwhile, the Mississippi State offense was not fairing much better, managing a 38-yard field goal early in the second half before Michael Haddix broke into the end zone on a 2-yard run with 2:21 left in the first half and with weather conditions worsening by the minute. The second half featured a slew of fumbles as neither team could get inside their opponents 35-yard line.  Georgia lost the ball three times while Mississippi State fumbled nine times, losing six. Each team finished the game with nine first downs.

 Temple has been having a good season so far. Most of the games this week have been pretty good, entertaining and fun. I love how back then there were so many good match-ups each week. USC has played Florida and Oklahoma, Penn State plays Nebraska and Alabama, Pitt and North Carolina and then florida State, Miami plays Florida so much better than today. Thanks for taking a baseball respit, lol, and following.

Following this replay reminds me of the things I miss about College Football .

1. The Wishbone
2. Tie games
3. The old conferences , Big 8 , Pac 10 , Big 10 and all the others before teams like Missouri became a Southeast team because of money and recruitment advantages
4. Probably in the minority here but I liked the conference tie-ins to the bowl games , although when we finally get a playoff system that'll be the best
5. The annual Nebraska vs Oklahoma game . Seemed like it was on the Friday after Thanksgiving or around there every year

I'm finally getting caught up on this , keep up the good work

The game saw five lead changes, three in a fourth quarter that saw 31 total points and a shoestring, game-saving tackle at the half yard line that saved the Utes.

Colorado State kicked a field goal on its next possession and on the first play from scrimmage after the rams score, Utah's Tyce Ferguson was intercepted and the Rams regained the lead with a 28-yard pass from Terry Nugent to Jeff Raikes. The see-saw game moved towards Utah (4-0, 1-0), when the Utes  systematically marched through the Rams defense and scored on a 5-yard run by Carl monroe with 3:23 left.

Syracuse and Norley put their 2-minute drill into effect before halftime and scored with :24 left when Norley flicked a 2-yard shuttle pass to Jamie Covington to bring the Orangemen within a touchdown. After a scoreless third quarter, Syracuse tied the game on Norley's third touchdown pass, a 3-yard corner fade to Marcus Hackett with 12:11 left. With the momentum squarely with the Orangemen, the Syracuse defense stopped Maryland and took the lead with a 19-yard run by reserve back Larry Morris. With nearly half the fourth quarter remaining, Maryland marched conservatively down the field, twice converting on third down and finished the drive when Esiason hit Russell Davis with a 2-yard pass to bring the Terps within a point. Head coach Bobby Ross called back the kicking team and successfully ran a sweep for a 2-point conversion. 

Virginia Tech 14, Wake Forest 3 ... Virginia Tech overcame a 3-0 halftime deficit with a pair of touchdown runs in the second half to keep the Demon Deacons winless while keeping the Hokies hopes for a bowl game alive. Virginia Tech running back Billy Hite scored on a 4-yard run in the third quarter and Randy Jamison marched through the Wake Forest defense into the end zone on a 2-yard plunge midway through the to complete the scoring. Neither team did much offensively, especially in the clutch as Wake Forest (0-5) was 1-for-14 on 3rd down while the Hokies (3-1), did not fare much better, going 3-for-14 on third down. The Virginia Tech defense held Wake Forest to just 183 yards in total offense and just 44 yards on 27 carries. Hite led all rushers with 83 yards. Wake Forest is alreay just one loss away from being ineligible for a bowl game. 

duke.jpgDuke 40, Navy 35 ... Duke needed a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns by Greg Boone to hold off a pesky Navy squad. While Duke's speed on special teams was too much for  Navy, the Midshipmen's near perfect wishbone caused massive headaches for the Blue Devils as three Navy players rushed for over 100 yards. Napoleon McCallum ran for 184 yards ion 25 carries, while Rich Clouse rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Marco Paganelli also ran fo two scores while compiling 107 yards. The game did not begin on a positive note for Navy as Duke (4-0) scored 10 first quarter points and went ahead 17-0 on an 18-yard pass from Ben Bennett to Mark Millitello. Navy got their offense straight on the next possession and scored on a 2-yard option run by Marco Pagnanelli. The Midshipmen's excitement was thwarted when Boone took the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a 24-7 lead. Duke would add to its lead when Navy punter Mark Colby shanked a 3 yard punt and Duke Capitalized as Bennett struck for a 43-yard strike to the speedy, but seldom used Chuck Herring for a 31-7 lead. Navy quickly struck before halftime as Pagnanelli and McCallum sliced the Blue Devils defense on a 55-yard pass before Clouse took a pitch and scooted 8-yards around end to cut the Duke lead to 31-14. Navy (1-3) used another big play as Pagnanelli fakes a pitch and ran 42-yards to cut the Duke lead to 10 points. McCallum scored on a 30-yard run with 13:12 left and Navy fought back to within a field goal. Once again, Boone stole the show. After squibbing a kick on the prior kickoff, Navy kicked to Boone who took the line drive kick at the 12 yard line and broke right to the far sideline and outran a bevy of would-be Navy tacklers. Boone would finish the day with a record 217-yards in returns and two scores. The missed extra-point made the score 37-28 in favor of Duke. Navy, however, once again used their unstoppable option to drive for another score, Clouse again gave the Midshipmen a touchdown, racing 36-yard untouched around end to come within two points. Navy stopped Duke, but for the first time in the second half could not move the ball.  The Blue Devils would seal the game with a 22-yard field with :46 left. Navy finished the game with 419 yards on the ground and 547 total yards, Duke had 297 yards of offense, 132 rushing and 165 passing.

Clemson 9, Kentucky 3 ... Terry Kinard intercepted a pass and returned it 60-yards for a touchdown with 1:32 left in the first quarter and that was all the scoring Clemson (2-2) would need as the Tigers held off Kentucky (0-4), as well as dismal weather conditions in Death Valley. There were nine combined turnovers, five by Clemson and four by Kentucky as neither team's offense found the end zone. The Tigers defense stuffed Kentucky and held the Wildcats to 93 yards of offense. Clemson took its 7-0 lead until the third quarter when their defense defense contributed a safety for a 9-0 advantage. Kentucky got on the scoreboard at the 10:34 mark of the fourth quarter when Chris Caudel made a 33-yard field goal, but that was the closest Kentucky would come to a score the remainder of the game. Clemson defensive tackle had two sacks.

neb.jpg(3) Nebraska 24, Auburn 14 ... Mike Rozier rushed for 122 yards as Nebraska handed Auburn its first loss of the season. In a very clean, well-played game, Nebraska (3-0) jumped out to a 7-0 first quarter lead and never trailed as they kept their national title hopes alive. The Cornhuskers were fresh off a 24-24 tie at Penn State had had to travel to the harsh Jordan-Hare Stadium and quickly established the tempo of the game. Rozier scored the Huskers first touchdown, but it was the reputation of the Nebraska defense and the control of the line of scrimmage when Nebraska was on offense that swayed the game. Auburn (3-1) rushed Lionel James and Bo Jackson a combined 17 times for 79 yards, nearly five yards per carry. But, the effective rushing attack of Nebraska forced Auburn's hand as quarterback Randy Campbell was 12-for-18 for 139 yards and a touchdown. Campbell hit Tommy Carroll with a 10-yard score just before halftime, bringing the Tigers to within seven points, but Nebraska scored on its first possession of the second half on a Jeff Smith's second touchdown, a short plunge that extended the Cornhuskers lead to 21-14. With Nebraska keying on Rozier and Craig, Tim Jessie scored on a 7-yard run to again bring Auburn within a touchdown. The Tigers needed a stop, but Nebraska pounded the ball for more than seven minutes and Kevin Seibel split the uprights from 27 yards for the final margin. 

North Carolina 21, Georgia Tech 7 ... The Yellow Jackets bid for an upset was short-lived as defensive back Walter Black single-handedly punctured the Georgia Tech's hopes with a pair of interception returns for touchdowns within a 1:45 span of the first quarter. At the 9:14 mark, Black picked Jim Bob Taylor and returned it 20-yards. On Tech's next possession, Black swiped the next Taylor pass at the 7:29 mark and returned it 33-yards for a 14-0 lead and essentially giving the game to the Tar Heels. North Carolina (2-2) intercepted Taylor three times after stuffing the Georgia Tech rushing attack. The Tar Heels limited Tech to 20 yards on 30 carries and forced Taylor into 35 passing attempts. William Fuller had two sacks for North Carolina as the Heels registered four sacks. The Georgia Tech (2-2) defense had a solid game as they held down Kelvin Bryant, allowing the all-conference back to 47 yards on 16 carries. 

Virginia 10, North Carolina State 6 ... Virginia pulled off the biggest upset in the ACC thus far as they shocked the Wolfpack at Scott Stadium. Beneath grey skies, Virginia (1-3, 1-1) limited North Carolina State (3-2, 1-2) to just two first quarter field goals and 200 yards of offense. With Wayne Schutts struggling and having thrown an interception, Virginia brought in Mike Eck to pilot the offense and the reserve connected with Nick Merrick on a 4-yard pass to give Virginia a 7-6 lead with 8:43 left in the first half. Eck played the remainder of the first half before giving way to Schutt in the second half.  Schutt led a 64-yard drive that led to a 25-yard field. After beginning the season with three consecutive wins, the Wolfpack lost to Maryland last week and have likely lost a chance at the ACC crown. 

missst.jpgMississippi State 10, (15) Georgia 3 ... Mississippi State pulled off a major upset and likely knocked Georgia out of the Top 20 with a 10-3 win at Scott Field. Rain throughout the week provided miserable conditions as the teams played through a continuous mist and mushy field conditions. Georgia took a 3-0 lead in the first quarter on a 29-yard field goal by Kevin Butler. The Bulldogs (2-3, 1-1) defense limited Herschel Walker to just 90 yards on 28 carries with a long of only 11 yards and kept the Georgia rushing game to less than three yards a carry. Meanwhile, the Mississippi State offense was not fairing much better, managing a 38-yard field goal early in the second half before Michael Haddix broke into the end zone on a 2-yard run with 2:21 left in the first half and with weather conditions worsening by the minute. The second half featured a slew of fumbles as neither team could get inside their opponents 35-yard line.  Georgia lost the ball three times while Mississippi State fumbled nine times, losing six. Each team finished the game with nine first downs.

Vanderbilt 37, Tulane 0 ... Vanderbilt won its first game of the season in impressive fashion as the Commodores dismantled Tulane at Dudley Field in Nashville. The Commodores (1-3) scored 31 points off Tulane turnovers as the Green Wave (1-3) fumbled twice and threw four interceptions.Vanderbilt led 24-0 at halftime thanks to four Tulane turnovers which resulted in all of Vanderbilt's scoring. The Green Wave's first 13 plays resulted in five incomplete passes, two punts, a fumble and an interception as Vanderbilt controlled the first half. Vanderbilt amassed 431 total yards and was 15-for-19 on 3rd down conversions. Ernie Goolsby rushed for 11 yards and two touchdowns while Keith Edwards added 94 yards on the ground. Whit Taylor threw for 225 yards on 2f-33 passing including connecting with wide receiver Allama Matthews 10 times. Matthews, one of the top receivers in the SEC, had 110 yards receiving. Vandy's Leonard Coleman had two interceptions.

Cincinnati 27, South Carolina 13 ... The Cincinnati Bearcats scored 15 points in the final 2:30 to come-from-behind and upend self-destructive South Carolina. Cincinnati (2-2) led 12-3 at halftime before the Game****s took the lead on a field goal and a 3-yard run by Thomas Dendy with 10:08 left to play. Cincinnati and South Carolina (1-4) exchanged possessions before the Bearcats put together a drive that resulted in a 3-yard run by Don Goodman. The two-point conversion gave Cincinnati a 20-13 lead. Cincy sealed the win on a 23-yard interception return for a touchdown by Freddie Logan. South Carolina made five turnovers in the game and was penalized 14 times for 86 yards and was sacked three times.

RackMultipart.20629.0_crop_340x234.jpg?1257307217(20) LSU 31, (6) Florida 27 ... There was yet another Top 20 shocker as No. 20-ranked LSU went to Gainesville and stunned No. 6 ranked Florida with two touchdowns in the final 5:43 in a critical early-season SEC battle. Five lead changes and two ties framed the game, but the game was decide in a wild fourth quarter. With the game tied at 17, Florida (3-1, 1-1) took the lead on a 24-yard field goal and got the ball back on an interception and return to the LSU 31 yard line. The Gators used three plays to get to the LSU 9 yard line, but Neal Anderson fumbled at the 2 yard line. LSU (3-0, 1-0) gave the Gators yet another opportunity when Alan Risher threw an interception on the first pass of the series. This time Florida took advantage, going 24 yards on on four plays, scoring on an 11-yard pass from Peace to Dwayne Dixon for a 27-17 lead with 8:18 left. LSU took over the ball on the 21 yard line and with the help of a 60-yard run by Dalton Hilliard, the Tigers scored on a 5-play, 79-yard drive that used 2:35 off the clock. beginning at their 32 yard line, Florida began a tense, and eventually tragic drive, James Jones, who was limited to 59-yards rushing by a swarming LSU defense, fumbled a yard short of a first down. Florida got the ball back and then, in a major gamble, turned to Jones on 4th-and-inches. Pushing through a narrow hole off left tackle, Jones got the first down, setting up the Gators with 3:22 left in the game. However, the fans in "The Swamp" were silenced when Peace fumbled the snap on the next play giving LSU the ball on the Gators 40 yard line. The Tigers used three passes, including back-to-back completions of 13 and 15 yards to Herman Fontenot and Garry James that moved the ball to the 5 yard line with less than two minutes to play. Hilliard plunged four yards and then bowled over from a yard out with 1:14 left to cap the comeback. Peace and the Gators were not quite finished as Florida took over at their own 24 yard line and three passes later were at the LSU 41 yard line. After an incompletion, things soured when LSU linebacker Rydell Malancon dropped the Florida quarterback for a sack, pushing the Gators back to their own 49 yard line, an LSU penalty gave Florida a final shot at the end zone that failed. Hilliard rushed for a game-high 153 yards on 20 carries while peace was 26-of-30 for 249 yards and three touchdowns in the valiant, but losing effort.

Tennessee 20, Washington State 7 ... Washington State just did not have enough to win in Knoxville as Tennessee wore down the visiting Cougars at Neyland Stadium. With scouts from the Liberty Bowl, Astro Blue Bonnet and All-American Classic on hand, Tennessee efficiently dismanlted the Cougars although not being able to put away WSU until the fourth quarter. The Vols (2-2) kept their bowl hopes alive, getting on the board in the first quarter on a Fuad Reveiz 21-yard field goal and taking a 10-0 lead when Alan ****rell hit Lenny Taylor with an 18-yard strike into double coverage. The game remained a 10-point difference until the 1:59 mark of the third quarter when Tim Harris scored on a 2-yard run. Tennessee methodically marched down the field on the next possession and scored on a Randall Morris 1-yard buck. Reveiz added a second field goal with :49 remaining to seal the win.

(10) Notre Dame 23, Michigan State 0 ... No. 10-ranked Notre Dame ot 132 yards rushing from Phil Carter and 124 yards rewceiving from Tony Hunter, but it was the Irish defense that was the story in East Lansing.

Notre Dame used three field goals for a 9-0 lead until they scored twice in the fourth quarter. Carter scored on a 36-yard run and seldom used greg bell scored on a 2-yard with 2:18 left.

(12) Illinois 24, Minnesota 24 ... No. 12-ranked Illinois needed an 18-yard field goal with :40 seconds left to earn a tie with the Golden Gophers in Minneapolis. Minnesota (1-2-1, 0-1-1) startled their hometown faithful by jumping out to a 17-0 lead late in the first half, but Tony Eason would be the Gophers thorn in the side.

Tim Spencer led Ohio State (4-0) with 128 yards and scored two short touchdowns. Florida State (2-2) took the lead on a 28-yard touchdown pass from Blair Williams to Jessie Hester and after a touchdown by Spencer, the Seminoles took a 14-7 lead on a 6-yard run by Ricky Williams. The Buckeyes tied the game in the third quarter on Spencer's second scoring run and took the lead when Vaughan Boradnax scored on a 9-yard run.

Ohio State was 13-for-18 on 3rd down conversions.

(11) West Virginia 34, Pittsburgh 7 ... In the "Backyard Brawl," Pittsburgh struck first, but West Virginia (4-0) smacked the Panthers in the mouth with a 24-point second quarter at Pitt Stadium.

Wisconsin 34, Purdue 17 ... Wisconsin rolled up 435 yards offense and never trailed as they won their first conference game of the season. The Badgers (3-1, 1-1) led 14-0 and pulled ahead 21-10 at halftime.

Texas 21, Rice 7 ... The sturggling Longhorns won their first game of the season in a contest that was not as close as the score indicated. Texas (1-2, 1-0) sprinted ahead with a pair of scoring runs by Darryl Clark in the first quarter and led 21-0 at halftime. Todd Dodge hit Herkie Walls with a 34-yard strike in the second quarter, which amounted to half of the yardage Texas would gain in the air. Rice gained just 212 yards and had four turnovers. Kiki DeAyala and Ed Williams each had two sacks for the Longhorns. 

USC 26, Oregon 7 ... Southern Cal won its opener as the outcome was never in doubt at the Coliseum. USC (2-2, 1-0) used a swarming, dominating defense to win their conference opener.

No. 2 Alabama and No. 4 Penn State Highlight Weekend Slate

The second weekend of october is here and every Top 20 team is in action this weekend, including three huge meeting between nationally-ranked teams. For the second time in three weeks the game of the weekend features the No. 4-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions. Joe Paterno's squad meet the No. 2-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and legendary head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant at Legion Field in Birmingham. The game is the highest-ranked battle of the season, Penn State hosted Nebraska in a battle of No. 4 and No. 3 two weeks. There is talk around the nation that a blowout win by Alabama could push the Crimson Tide to No. 1 in the polls, even if top-ranked Washington wins decisively in its game against California in Seattle.

No. 3-ranked Nebraska faces a tough challenge in Boulder this week against the No. 14-ranked Colorado Buffaloes in what could be the determining factor in the Big 8 conference and an Orange Bowl berth. Nebraska has been playing well recently, but faces their biggest test of the season.

In a surprise Top 20 matchup, No. 10 West Virginia hosts No. 20 Boston College in Morgantown. The pesky Eagles moved into the Top 20 two weeks ago while Mountaineers broke in four weeks ago and have steadily rose in the rankings from No. 17 to cracking the top 10 in this weeks poll.

Classic rivalries also take stage this week as Michigan State visits No. 7 Michigan and down at the Texas State Fair Texas battles No. 11 Oklahoma. The Wolverines suffered a minor blemish this season playing Notre Dame to a tie, but are poised to claim the Big 10 crown and earn a bid to the Rose Bowl with a potential shot at the national crown.

The Longhorns and the Sooners was looked upon to be a battle of top 10 teams, but the Longhorns suffered a loss to Utah that derailed their season but Oklahoma has stayed in the polls standing just outside the top 10 ranks.

In a highly anticipated meeting that has sounds bites buzzing from around the nation, the Miami Hurricanes visit South Bend to play the No. 8 Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. The up-and-down Hurricanes could regain respectability and crack the Top 20 with an upset while Notre Dame can keep its national title hopes alive by containing Miami's high octane offense.

The first leg of the Commander-in-Chief Trophy takes place when Navy faces off against No. 12 Air Force in Colorado.
