College Football Roundup Week 3 Action S

Notre Dame fans let the era of good feelings begin! It wasnt easy nor pretty but the Fighting Irish secured their first victory under Marcus Freeman with a 24-17 win over Cal. Elsewhere around the college football landscape, the Pac-12 rose from the ashes, Oklahoma made a statement, Antonio Callaway Jersey Texas A&M righted the ship, and we received further confirmation that strange things are in the water down in Boone, North Carolina. Now, lets get to the Week 3 action. TEXAS A&M 17, MIAMI 9One week after putting up only 186 yards and 14 points against Appalachian State, the Aggie offense wasnt much better with Max Johnson at QB. However, the defense was the story of the game. Miami ran 25 more offensive plays than Texas A&M and outgained the Aggies 392-264, but the Hurricanes could not convert when it mattered most. Without leading receiver Xavier Restrepo, QB Tyler Van Dyke was forced to check the ball down most of the night averaging only 5.3 YPA and when Miami did get into scoring position, the Canes couldnt convert. Kicker Andres Borregales mi sed 2 field goals and Miami was just 5-14 on third down. Both of these teams leave the game with more questions than answers. Miami needs to find playmakers in Restrepos absence, while the Aggies need to find offensive consistency heading into a challenging three-game stretch against Arkansas, at Mi si sippi State, and at Alabama. WASHINGTON 39, MICHIGAN STATE 28Last season, Washington only averaged 21.5 PPG, but new head coach Kalen DeBoer and Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey offensive coordinator Ryan Grigg have completely turned around this Husky program. Washington blitzed Michigan State on Saturday behind the left arm of Indiana transfer Michael Penix Jr. Penix threw for 397 yards and 4 TDs, spreading the ball around to a talented receiving corps headlined by JaLynn Polk, who had 3 TDs, and Jalen McMillan.The offensive fireworks will get the headlines, but the Husky defense was just as impre sive. Spartan RB Jalen Berger came into the game averaging 113.5 YPG on the ground, but he was held to just 27 yards on 13 carries. As a team, MSU ran for only 42 yards on 29 carries, a paltry 1.4 YPC. By the time the Spartans stopped trying to establish the run, Washington already led 39-14 and the game was no longer in doubt. Washington leapt into the AP Poll at #18 this weekend and has a schedule that sets up very nicely for the Huskies to make a run at the Pac-12 title. They avoid both USC and Utah in cro s-divisional games and do not face either of the Oregon schools until November. OREGON 41, BYU 20The fact that Oregon beat BYU isnt surprising the Ducks were favored, the game was at Autzen Stadium, and Oregon started the season with much higher expectations than the Cougars. What was surprising though is how Oregon beat BYU. The Cougars had looked like one of the most physical teams in the country through the first two weeks of the season but were pushed around from the first snap by an Oregon team that just two weeks ago was run off the field by Georgia. Credit to Dan Lanning for the improvement that the Ducks have shown in such a short amount of time. One week after BYU held Baylor to just 2.9 YPC, Oregon averaged 4.8 YPC en route to 212 yards on the ground. Much of the rushing succe s was due to the dual-threat ability of Oregon QB Bo Nix, who threw for 222 yards and 2 TDs while adding another 3 rushing scores. If Nix can play like this the rest of the way, this Oregon team will be tough to beat. Like so many other games, this one turned on a special teams play. Trailing 17-7 with 5:57 left in the first half, BYU kicker Jake Oldroyd mi sed a 38-yard field goal that would have cut the deficit to a touchdown. On the ensuing po se sion, Nix found Terrance Ferguson for a 15-yard score with just 24 seconds remaining. The Ducks took a 24-7 lead into the half and scored the first Olivier Vernon Jersey drive of the second half to push the margin to 31-7, icing the game. McDONOUGHS MUSINGS~ BYU wasnt the only team who had a special teams miscue swing the momentum of the game. As mentioned previously Nick Chubb Jersey , Miami kicker Andres Borregales mi sed two field goals (on the second and third Canes drives of the game no le s) and with the score tied 3-3, Tyrique Stevenson fumbled a punt which was recovered by Texas A&M. Three plays later, the Aggies punched in the first touchdown of the game. Over in Raleigh, after Texas Tech forced North Carolina State to punt on their first drive of the game, returner Drew Hocutt fumbled the ensuing punt, leading to a Wolfpack field goal and giving them momentum they would never relinquish on their way to a 27-14 win. Finally, in Baton Rouge, a Bulldog holding call wiped out an 88-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter that would have put the Mi si sippi State into scoring position while only down 8 to LSU. The Tigers would go on to win the game 31-16.~ Brian Kelly earned his first SEC victory with the LSU win over Mi si sippi State. The difference in the game was LSU QB Jayden Daniels, who transferred from Arizona State in the offseason. Daniels accounted for 303 total yards and 2 TDs, and constantly made plays with his feet to lead the Tigers to 21 fourth quarter points and the 31-16 victory. ~ Another player named Daniels had a big day as well, as Kansas QB Jalon Daniels threw for 158 yards and 3 TDs while rushing for another 123 yards and 2 TDs in the 48-30 Jayhawk victory over Houston. Kansas has been one of the best offensive teams in the country this season under Lance Leipold, his second at the school. Kansas is third in the country in scoring offense, averaging 53 PPG, and after punting on its first two drives against Houston (and falling behind 14-0), scored on 8 of the next 10 drives. The only two drives Kansas didnt score on the rest of the game were at the end of the first half and end of the game. Kansas has a real shot of heading into an October 15th matchup at Oklahoma undefeated. ~ Appalachian State continues to be must-see TV. In week 1, the Mountaineers scored 40 points in the fourth quarter yet somehow still lost 63-61 to North Carolina. Last Larry Ogunjobi Jersey week, Appalachian State scored a stunning 17-14 victory at Texas A&M. However, this week may have topped them all. Trailing 28-26 after Troy took an intentional safety, Chase Brice connected with Christan Horn off a deflection for an incredible last-second 53-yard Hail Mary touchdown to give the Mountaineers the 32-28 victory. Next week, Appalachian State hosts James Ma
