Quantcast

In case you went to bed early last night...

Washington State scored 14 in the 4th quarter to come from behind and beat Arizona State 37-27.

The loss for Arizona State is another puzzling piece of their season.

ASU started off 5-1 with big victories over USC, Oregon State and Utah. Their one loss was 14-17 at Illinois when Illinois was undefeated.

They then lost at Oregon 41-27 and then throttled Colorado 48-14 (thus they were 6-2 at that point).

However something has happened the last two weeks. First, they lost 28-29 at UCLA and now last night's 37-27 loss at Wazzou. 6-4 with two home games to go (Arizona and Cal).  8-4 sure sounds a lot better than 6-6 or even 7-5.  

Just for perspective, in 2010 ASU went 6-6, in 2009 4-8, in 2008 5-7, in 2007 10-3, in 2006 7-6 and in 2005 7-5.

"When we started the drive, get their 2 point play ready, because we weren't going to go into overtime and beat these guys here." - Gary Patterson

TCU scored, converted the two point play and Boise missed their subsequent field goal attempt. Brass. 

For what it's worth, Boise State and TCU have played 4 times since 2003. Both teams have won 2 of those games, none decided by more than 7 points.

As for Boise, how about this stat, in the last 4 seasons, Boise State is 46-3...those three losses were by 1, 3 and 1 point.

Pelini: This game shouldn't have been played

Very powerful words from Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini after his team defeated Penn State yesterday. 

Pelini feels that as educators, they missed a teaching moment yesterday. His words are strong. This should be a must watch. 

184 points scored in a college football game

Faulkner and Union College met yesterday in an NAIA shootout that ended in a 95-89 Faulkner triple OT win.  

The two teams ended regulation tied at 75, already eclipsing the previous NAIA record for scoring at 141 points (set by Union last season). The two teams also combined for 1,489 yards.

To put things in perspective, the 184 points scored during yesterday's contest is more than Minnesota, Boston College, UAB, Kentucky, Memphis, Kent State, Akron, New Mexico and FAU have scored all season.

The game was the second highest scoring college football game ever, surpassed only by Georgia Tech's 222-0 beating of Cumberland nearly a century ago (insert your own Paul Johnson joke here). 

Ironically, it was a defensive hold by Faulkner that won the game in the third OT, stopping Union's Rob Brown (who had been nearly unstoppable all game) short on 4th and 2 from the 17. 

Faulkner's quarterback Josh Hollingsworth threw for 637 yards and seven touchdowns (and he caught one as well).

Faulkner's 14 total touchdowns set an NAIA record. 

Congratulations to Faulkner head coach Gregg Baker, offensive coordinator Corey Fipps and the entire staff.
