Off And Running In The PAC-10…First Game Recaps
LSU 31 – Washington 23: We’d like to give Jake Locker and the Huskies a hand for not getting embarrassed on National TV… we didn’t even think it would be this close. But they fought the entire game…so either they’re really good or LSU kinda sucks because Washington has lost 15 straight. FYI Jake Locker is the best QB in the Pac-10.
Cal 52 – Maryland 13: I think we found the team that has the best chance at winning the Pac-10 for the first time in over a decade other than USC…the Cal Golden Bears! They have one of the best RB’s in the nation in Jahvid Best and a defense that held a decent Maryland team to 13. And usually now would be the time we talk about their questionable passing game, but Kevin Riley had a career high 4 TD’s last game and looked a lot better than Matt Barkley…so bring on the Trojans!
UCLA 33 – San Diego State 14: Is this the year that UCLA challenges USC for a Pac-10 title? …well based off this game… no, but they are looking decent. They are not a top 25 team like USC and Cal (Oregon is out the top 25 after that loss to Boise State), but they are going to be in middle of the Pac this year, battling it out for second best.
And it’s not going to be the QB or the defense that’s going to hold them back, it’s going to be the running game. But we’ll know a lot more about this team come next week when they travel down to Tennessee to play the Vols in their tune-up for Florida.
Oregon State 34 – Portland State 7: The Rodgers Brothers, James and Jacquizz, are our favorite duo in college football…over 100 yards rushing for Jacquizz and 95 yards receiving for James in this one… those boys are bad! But USC would have beat Portland State 70-0 so Oregon State still is sub-par in our eyes.
Stanford 39 – Washington State 13: Both these teams are boo-boo and don’t deserve more than 30 seconds spent writting about how much they suck.
