Oregon v Washington – LaMichael James returns with a 165 yd game on 25 carries. With Darron Thomas going 13 of 25 for 169 and 1 TD so all in all it was a good outing for the Ducks. Though Keith Price did lend the Ducks a hand with the two interceptions but he put up a hell of game 24 of 35 for 143 yds and 2 TDs this sophomore is one to watch.
Texas Tech v. Texas – Ground Game Juggernauts put up 237 yds on the ground in the first half on their way to 441 yds rushing for the game. We have named the new formation the “Wild Fozz” and its worked their first three scores were out of this formation.
LSU v. Bama – Tough defensive battle in which the missed field goals determined the victor. The game was such that if either team had scored a TD the game would have been a shoot out. I still feel LSU was the better team and what held them back from domination was coaching. Les Miles while though great is not the best at reading his own team a capitalizing on their strengths. The team this year is extremely fast and Miles uses a slow powerful offensive scheme. Secondly Miles didn’t use his two QB’s appropriately. If he would have allowed Lee to either stay in the game, showing trust, or just kept him out, showing faith in Jefferson, then the team would have been able to build a momentum with a constant QB.
