Early Saturday results…

First things first.  From Friday night, Washington comes from behind to win their first road game in over a year, defeating Cal 21-13.

The Lakers are now 0 -3, falling to the Clippers in spite of Kobe’s 40 points.  Too early for anyone to tell me “I told you so” yet!  I still believe..

OK, Georgia Tech brought back the gold helmets (thank heavens) and traveled to Maryland to take on the Terps.  The Jackets win 33 – 13.  Tevin Washington started the game at QB but Vad Lee also saw a lot of action in both the first half and the second half.  As previously noted, Maryland was starting a former linebacker at QB, having lost 4 starting quarterbacks already this season.  Let’s summarize: the good and the bad!

The good: Both Tevin and Vad Lee looked good running the offense.  Orwin Smith had a good day rushing the ball for 89 yards.  Also, Synjan Days (former back-up QB) looked good at the A back position running the ball.  On defense, Jeremiah Attaochu had a nice day for the Jackets.  The defense had five three and outs, were the recipients of one turnover and did a better job on third down (a big sore spot this season).

The bad: The kicking game was once again an adventure, most notably after TD conversions.  For some inexplicable reason, this has gone south for the Jackets and they failed to convert on two conversions.  The TD pass allowed as time expired was not a “good” thing either, in spite of the fact that the game was already decided.

In closing, the good:  Georgia Tech wins after dropping four out of their last five games.  Let’s see if this can lead to something good down the final stretch!

Other final scores from early Saturday action; 12 Oklahoma over ISU 35 – 20, 10 Louisville over Temple 45 – 17, 7 Florida squeaks by Missouri at home, 14 -7, and 16 Texas A & M behind freshman sensation Johnny Manziel overpowers 15 Mississippi State 38 -13.

14 Stanford is currently having no problems with Colorado, up 35 -0 at the half.

Just getting underway, Ole Miss at 6 UGA and Pittsburgh at 6 Notre Dame.

Tonight some big ones.  Still not ready to make prediction on 1 Alabama at 5 LSU, leaning towards an upset???  I will predict 4 Oregon over 17 USC and 2 Kansas State over 24 Oklahoma State.  Stay tuned…
