Some thought that the Trojans were primed for an upset versus the Ducks. They were wrong. Matt Leinart started the game off slowly, not even completing ½ of his passes in the first 2 quarters of action. But in the 2nd half the Trojan offense roared to life and Leinart was leading the way.

It was a tough loss for Bowling Green and Omar never seemed to get in a rhythm. The Broncos of Boise State decided the best way to slow down Jacobs was by power running, and keeping the ball away from the Bowling Green offense. His numbers were okay, but nothing compared to what he usually puts up. His career low in yardage for a game is 217, and he threw 2 of his 3 TDs in the 4th quarter against the Broncos' reserves. I fully expect Jacobs to bounce back in a big way this week versus Temple.

This game was hastily rescheduled from Saturday to Thursday because of hurricane Rita. Most of the Texas A&M fans listened to the warnings of the school to stay away from the game. The stadium was unusually bare as Reggie McNeal led the Aggies to another victory. McNeal became the first A&M quarterback to throw for 300 yards in back to back games.

Reggie Bush helped the Trojan offense get going, and when it did, it was unstoppable. USC was simply too much for the Ducks to handle, and they pulled ahead at the beginning of the 2nd half. The Trojans have been #1 in the AP poll for a record 22 straight weeks, and with Bush playing game breaker, it looks as though they'll continue that streak for a while.

It was a tough game for Williams, that ended with a disappointing play for the Senior. With the Tigers overtime hopes dwindling DeAngelo was pushed out of bounds one yard short of a first down on a fourth down play. Now with 4,575 career yards Williams passed former Tulane back Mewelde Moore to become Conference USA's all-time leading rusher. It was the 5th time in the last 8 games that Williams has ran for over 200 yards.

The Trojans really wore down the Duck defense. The hammerhead again was LenDale White. White scored two TDs in the game, including another goal line plunge. White only had 15 carries for the game, but that's all it took for him to punish the Duck's and it was evident in the 2nd half that it had taken its toll.

It was a close game, but Laurence Maroney pounded the Boilermaker defense relentlessly. He even attempted one pass, but it ended up incomplete. Maroney was a monster, rushing 46 times for a career high 217 yards, punishing the opposition with every run. He also added 5 receptions, showing off his all-purpose ability.

It was a great game against a strong team and another elite receiver, Oregon State's Mike Hass. Hagan and the Sun Devils both got the best of the Beavers. It was 14-3 at the half, but Derek didn't come alive until the 3rd quarter. He scored two 3rd quarter TDs and the Sun Devils continued to roll. Derek Hagan has a reception in 33 straight games and passed John Jefferson to become ASU's career leader in receiving yards.

Texas Tech entered Saturday ranked #1 in the nation in scoring offense, total offense, and passing offense. It took a while for the Red Raiders to get going, but once they did, it was all over. Hick's teammate Robert Johnson was 1st in the nation, averaging 169 yards receiving per game, but was held to just 2 catches and 12 yards. Hicks helped fill that void and provided a reliable target, compiling 4 receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown.

It was as great game versus a strong team and another elite receiver, Arizona State's Derek Hagan. The Beaver offense was mistake prone in this big game, as evidenced by QB Matt Moore's 3 interceptions. Oregon State had plenty of chances though, dominating the play clock for over 35 minutes and running 96 offensive plays.

Steve Smith provided a great target for Matt Leinart in their first division game of the season against Oregon. Teammate DeWayne Jarret scored 2 TDs receiving, but the USC WR the Duck's were most concerned with was Smith. Even though he was held scoreless, Smith was a crucial part of the passing game.
