NCAA Football Top Ten Week 9 Recap

The Ducks got Darron Thomas and LaMichael James back as they battled the Cougars. Thomas threw for 153 yards and a touchdown and James ran for 53 yards, in a backup role to Barner. For another week, the Ducks offense revolved around Kenjon Barner, who ran for 107 yards and a touchdown. The most impressive part of Oregon’s 43 points is they only had the ball for 19 minutes the whole game. The Ducks travel to Seattle to take on Washington.

Barner was the focal point of the Ducks offense again.

6. Stanford 56, USC 48 (3 OT)

Fans in The Coliseum were treated to a Pac 12 classic. The Trojans and Cardinals played through three overtimes to find a winner. The scoring fest didn’t get going until the second half, when USC’s Curtis McNeal, who ran for 145 yards, scored touchdowns on two consecutive possessions to put the Trojans up 20-10. Andrew Luck responded with a 5-yard pass and a 2-yard run to put Stanford up 24-20 after three. The game was tied at 27 with 3:08 to play, when Luck was intercepted for a 33-yard return to put the Trojans up 34-27. The Cardinals drove down to the USC 2-yard line, where Stephan Taylor scored with 38 seconds. USC drove down the field but came up short on a controversial play where the Trojans believed there was time left,  but officials ruled the game was headed for overtime. Both teams went back and forth in the first two overtimes, as Stanford got the ball first in the third overtime. Stanford scored on a Taylor 5-yard run and completed the two point conversion with a Luck pass to Tight End Coby Fleener. USC hoped to respond but Curtis McNeal fumbled the ball into the end zone for a touch back, giving the Cardinals the dramatic win. The Cardinals travel to Corvallis to take on Oregon State.

Luck threw for 330 yards and 3 touchdowns in a thriller

Georgia Tech 31, 5. Clemson 17

It was a bad trip to Atlanta for the unbeaten Tigers. The Yellow Jackets took it to Clemson from the start behind two touchdowns runs from Orwin Smith, giving Georgia Tech a 24-3 halftime lead. Tahj Boyd attempted to lead a comeback in the second half with a 48-yard pass to Freshman sensation Sammy Watkins, but still would only be able to get within two scores. The Tigers have the week off before hosting Wake Forest.

Washington's 176 yards rushing and 60 yards passing led to the upset.

4. Boise State

3. Oklahoma State 59, Baylor 24

The Bears had no answer for the Cowboys offensive assault. Oklahoma State attacked on the ground and through the air to the tune of 600 yards of total offense. Joseph Randle ran for 152 yards and 4 touchdowns as they continue to have a balanced offense. The aerial combo of Weeden and Blackmon was successful as well, as Weeden threw for 274 yards and 3 touchdowns and Blackmon had 13 catches for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Cowboys welcome Kansas State to Stillwater this week.

Randle found pay dirt 4 times against the Bears.

2. Alabama

Barner ran for 115 yards and Bryan Bennett threw for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns in place of Thomas. The Ducks host Washington State this week.

Barner demolished the Buffaloes

9. Arkansas 29, Ole Miss 24

The Rebels gave the Razorbacks all they had in a tight SEC match up. Ole Miss jumped out to a 17-0 lead midway through the first half, before Arkansas got on the board to make it 17-7 at the half. The second half belonged to the Hogs as they outscored Ole Miss 22-7. Tyler Wilson threw for 232 yards and ran for 2 touchdowns. On the ground, Dennis Johnson ran for 160 yards and a touchdown.

The Huskies who were one of the surprising stories, had their “Luck” run out this weekend. Andrew Luck threw for 169 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Cardinals ground game of Stepfan Taylor and Tyler Gaffney ran for 255 yards and two touchdowns, taking some pressure off Luck. Stanford travels to the Coliseum to take on USC.

Luck only threw for 169 yards but found the end zone twice.

7. Clemson 59, North Carolina 38

The Tar Heels players will probably see Tajh Boyd in their nightmares for weeks. Boyd threw for 367 yards and 5 touchdowns and ran for a touchdown as well. Freshman sensation Sammy Watkins continues to attract Boyd’s attention, catching 8 balls for 91 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers travel to Georgia Tech this week.

Boyd continues to lead the fighting Dabo's.

Michigan State 37, 6. Wisconsin 31

This was a Big Ten affair that people will be talking about for years. Wisconsin scored twice in the first and the Spartans responded with 23 answered points to take a 23-14 halftime lead. The only score in the 3rd was a 23-yard field goal, which led to a frantic fourth quarter. The Spartans scored first on a 15-yard pass from Kirk Cousins, but Wisconsin answered back with two scores to tie it at 31 with 1:30 left in the game. Michigan State drove down to the Wisconsin 44 and had one play left until overtime. Kirk Cousins rolled around and fired a ball down to the goal line where it was tipped and landed in the hands of Keith Nichol. He was ruled down at the 1-yard line, but officials then reviewed the play and ruled he broke the plane for a touchdown, giving Michigan State the win. This week, Michigan State travels to Nebraska and Wisconsin travels to Ohio State.

Nichol hauls in the hail mary from Cousins to upset Wisconsin.

5. Boise State 37, Air Force 26

The Falcons gave the Broncos one of their toughest tests of the year. Air Force was in the game until late in the fourth, when Kellen Moore hit Doug Martin with a 2-yard pass to put them up 34-20. Moore threw for 281 yards and 3 touchdowns and Martin ran for 125 yards and a touchdown in the victory. Boise State has the week off before traveling to Las Vegas to play UNLV.

Moore threw for 281 yards and 3 touchdowns.

4. Oklahoma State 45, Missouri 24

The Cowboys offense that normally dominates through the air, kept it on the ground for the most part. Joseph Randle ran for 138 yards and 3 touchdowns and caught a touchdown. Brandon Weeden was decent throwing for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns in the win. The bad news was Justin Blackmon was held out of the second half after sustaining a head injury. Oklahoma State hosts Baylor this week.

Randle ran for 138 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Texas Tech 41, 3. Oklahoma 38

After an hour and 45 minute weather delay, the Red Raiders took it to the Sooners. The Norman faithful were speechless as Texas Tech took a 24-7 halftime lead. Oklahoma surged back in to second half behind Landry Jones’s 412 yards and 4 of his 5 touchdowns. The Sooners got within a field goal but could not recover the onside kick, which sealed the upset for Texas Tech. The Sooners travel to Kansas State for a Big 12 battle this weekend.

Doege threw for 441 yards and 4 touchdowns in the upset of the Sooners.

2. Alabama 37, Tennessee 6

The Trent Richardson Show had many “Volunteers” this week. Richardson ran for 77 yards and 2 touchdowns in a one-sided affair. The passing game was good too, with A.J. McCarron throwing for 284 yards and a touchdown and Marquis Maze had five catches for 106 yards. The Crimson Tide have a week to prepare before hosting LSU in the biggest game of the season.

Richardson found the end zone twice against the Vols.

1. LSU 45, Auburn 10

The battle of the Tigers was easily won by the team from Baton Rouge. Through the air, Jarrett Lee threw for 165 yards and 2 touchdowns and on the ground, Kenny Hilliard ran for 65 yards and 2 touchdowns. Jordan Jefferson came off the bench to throw a 42-yard touchdown pass that proved to be the game winner.  LSU has their bye week before traveling to Tuscaloosa for a game people have been looking forward to all season.

Jefferson's 42-yard touchdown pass proved to be the game winner.
