#19 Washington (2-0) @ Illinois (2-1)
Another W for the Dawgs. Here's the highlights
Western State (0-2) @ Idaho State (2-0)
Idaho State continues to play well, especially at quarterback, as the Quarterback had another impressive performance. He was 36 for 53 with 429 yards passing and two touchdowns. The Bengals held the Mountaineers to just 267 yards of offense. Final score: Idaho State wins 29-3.
UTSA (1-2) at Arizona (3-0)
It what was a rather vanilla day for the Wildcats, B.J. Denker finished the day at 14 of 21 for 151 yards and 1 touchdown. He also added another 2 touchdowns on his feet. Ka-deem Cary had 128 yards on 27 carries and 2 touchdowns. Final score: Arizona wins 38-13.
#5 Stanford (2-0) @ Army (1-2)
Stanford traveled across the country to play the cadets, and came out of the gates looking sloppy and sluggish. They only led by 7 at half, and they just looked mediocre. However, that was short lived as the Cardinal's mojo appeared to arrive by plain in time for the second half, as the Cardinal ran away with the game after that. Final score: Stanford wins 34-20
Tennessee (2-1) @ #2 Oregon (3-0)
The volunteers came to town on the back end of a home and home and wanted to do a little bit of damage to a big time Pac-12 foe, and had hopes of revenge from the shellacking they received from the hands of the Ducks the last time the two teams met. That didn't happen. Marcus Mariota threw for 456 yards and 4 touchdowns, while the ducks racked up 216 yards on the ground. Final score: Oregon wins 59-14.
#20 Wisconsin (2-1) at Arizona State (2-0)
This was supposed to be a measuring stick for the Sun Devils. On the final drive of the game, Wisconsin had the ball well within field goal range and were down by two. The ball was on the left hash and Wisconsin QB put a knee down in the middle of the field to make the kick a little bit easier. Planning on having plenty of time to spike the ball and stop the clock ... but then the Pac-12 refs screwed things up once again, and the Badgers weren't able to get the spike or the field goal and ASU came away with the win. Final score: Arizona State wins 32-30.
#4 Ohio State (3-0) @ Cal (1-2)
The Buckeye's were missing their starting quarterback, but it didn't matter as they hung 52 on the Golden Bears. However, the Bears did manage to put up 503 yards of offense, with Jared Goff going 31 of 54 for 371 yards. It just wasn't enough as the Bears had no way to stop the Buckeye attack. Final score: Ohio State wins 52-34.
#19 UCLA (2-0) @ #23 Nebraska (2-1)
I'm not going to lie, but since I only got to listen to the first half of the game, I thought Nebraska was going to run away with this one. When I saw the final score, I was completely and utterly surprised. The Bruins calmed down and just went to work in the second half. They came back from an 18 point lead and proceeded to wipe the field with the Huskers, and leaving little left but angry fans with old recordings of Bo Pelini. Final score: UCLA wins 41-21.
Southern Utah (2-1) @ Washington State (2-1)
Southern Utah came to town hoping to do some damage in the Palouse, but failed miserable. Connor Haliday had 5 touchdown passes and racked up 383 yards. Final score: Wazzu wins 48-10.
