The Trojans went to Arizona State and were down 21-3 at halftime. They abandoned the high powered passing attack (ASU was taking away the short slants very effectively & confusing Leinart), and spent the 2nd half shoving the ball down ASU's throat. In a matchup of the nations 2 most prolific offenses, USC ended up out-rushing ASU 373-68.

Omar Jacobs took advantage of a poor Owl defense that has allowed an average of 50 points per game so far this season. Jacobs didn't play much into the 3rd quarter as he continues to rack up impressive numbers. So far this season he has completed 63% of his passes for 1,432 yards and only 2 interceptions.

The Texas Longhorns made the Tigers pay for their mistakes on Saturday. Vince Young had a good game throwing for 2 TDs and running for 1 TD. The Longhorns always had great field position because of Missouri turnovers, so Young didn't need to drive the ball far to score.

The Aggies offense took awhile to get going and looked horrible in the first half. They only had 70 yards of total offense and three first downs by halftime. McNeal started out the game rough, but seemed to find a comfort level when the game was on the line. The Aggies finally got it done in overtime and won 16-13.

Brad Smith had 3 first half turnovers that led to Longhorn points. It was a long day for Smith who couldn't get much done passing the ball. He continually carried the ball from the shotgun but never got in a rhythm. Smith did fumble early and often, but he was careful with the ball in the second half.

The Trojans were down big at the end of the 2nd quarter. In the second half they didn't try anything fancy, they just went to their 2-headed monster at RB. White's power combined with Bush's gamebreaking ability pounded the Sun Devil defense into submission as USC went on to the big win.


DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis Tigers

A late turnover by UTEP allowed the Tigers to get the win. Williams had a late 3 yard touchdown run after an interception by the defense. Four times UTEP turned the ball over inside the Memphis 25. DeAngelo made them pay with 35 carries for 236 yards. Williams even lined up at quarterback and scrambled for most of his yardage in that formation.

Can you say "monster" boys and girls? I knew you could. LenDale White had another monster game, and the first of this season in a big game versus Arizona State. It was White's power running that led the Trojan's to victory and kept their winning streak alive. White was bringing the pain with his patented stiff arm and power. Leinart and Bush may get all the press, but don't forget about White. It looks like he'll be making a huge impact on Sundays in the very near future.

Penn State gobbled up Maroney in quite the defensive display. 48 yards is Maroney's season low, and he only had 14 yards rushing at halftime. The Gopher offense never got it done, going 3 and out on drive after drive. This performance should derail Maroney's already longshot chance at the Heisman Trophy.

Florida State is 4-0 and are getting it done with a RBBC approach at tailback. Washington lost carries again this week to Lorenzo Booker. It looks as though this will be the way things go unless there is an injury situation.

Martin Nance had a huge day and helped lead the Redhawks to the victory over the Bearcats. Miami (OH) re-claimed the Victory Bell in what the schools claim is the longest running rivalry west of the Allegheny mountains. Nance continues to have a great season and is emerging as perhaps the best pro prospect this year at the receiver position.

Derek Hagan had a decent game against the defending champions. He was held scoreless, but that was due more to the fact that his QB, Sam Keller, threw interception after interception. USC has some tough defenders, and they yielded quite a few yards to Hagan.

Hicks helped the Red Raiders stay undefeated with a good game against a poor Kansas defense. Hicks was all over the field and proved to be not only a deep threat, but a reliable target as well. Texas Tech loves to throw the ball around and Hicks is going to get plenty of opportunity to showcase his skill the rest of the year.

The Beavers scored 21 points in the 4th quarter to beat Washington State. Mike Hass was a big reason for the resurgence because of a big 63-yard touchdown reception with less than 7 minutes remaining in the game. Entering this contest Hass led the nation in receiving yards with 167.5 yards per game. Mike also continued his streak of 9 straight games with at least 100 yards receiving.


Steve Smith, WR, USC Trojans

Smith was a non-factor in this big game versus Arizona State. Matt Leinart was held without a TD pass and the ASU corners locked down Smith. However, it was his presence that helped open up things for the USC run game. Smith should bounce back nicely this week against Arizona.
