Results from this weekend's College Football Games - 9/5/11.

 

Texas St 10 - (0-1, 0-1 away)
Texas Tech 50 - (1-0, 1-0 home)


Seth Doege fuels Texas Tech's rout of Texas State - Seth Doege threw for three touchdowns and 326 yards to lead Texas Tech to a 50-10 win over Texas State on Saturday night.  The Red Raiders fell behind early but rallied and held the Bobcats scoreless after the first quarter.  Doege, who played most of the game, went 23 for 33. He threw two touchdown passes for 20 yards and one for 10.  Eric Stephens ran for two touchdowns -- one a 46-yarder where he went untouched up the middle to put the Red Raiders up 23-10. He finished with 118 yards on 21 carries.  Darrin Moore, Doege's favorite target, caught 12 passes for 221 yards.  The Bobcats (0-1) started off solid with an option-type ground game that gave Texas Tech's defense fits. Three of the Bobcats' four fumbles, by quarterback Shaun Rutherford and running backs Marcus Curry and Terrence Franks, led to touchdowns for the Red Raiders (0-1).   READ MORE






Rice 9 - (0-1, 0-1 away)
Texas 34 - (1-0, 1-0 home)



Texas shakes off slow start in win against Rice - Freshman Jaxon Shipley caught a touchdown pass on a trick play and Fozzy Whittaker scored twice in the fourth quarter as Texas shook off a slow start for a 34-9 season-opening win over Rice on Saturday night.  Shipley, the younger brother of Texas career receptions leader Jordan Shipley, put the Longhorns ahead 20-9 in the third on a pass from wide receiver John Harris.  Garrett Gilbert passed for 239 yards, with 115 going to Mike Davis in Texas' new offense under first-year coordinator Bryan Harsin. Coach Mack Brown overhauled his staff after the Longhorns went 5-7 and missed a bowl in 2010, Texas' first losing season since 1997.  Chris Boswell kicked three field goals for Rice, which has lost 40 of the last 41 meetings with Texas.  The win unveiled some new wrinkles in the Texas offense with some new and old names and faces. It was clunky at times, efficient at others.  Most important for the Longhorns was getting the win at home, where they were 2-5 in 2010.   READ MORE







UCLA 34 - (0-1, 0-1 away)
Houston 38 - (1-0, 1-0 home)



Case Keenum throws for 310 yards and 2 TDs as Houston upends UCLA - Case Keenum threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns in his return from reconstructive knee surgery, Tyron Carrier caught 10 passes for 138 yards and Houston beat UCLA 38-34 on Saturday.  Keenum completed 30 of 40 passes without an interception in his first game since tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament early in a loss to UCLA last September in the Rose Bowl. The NCAA granted him a sixth year of eligibility in January, allowing Keenum to resume his pursuit of several NCAA records.  He looked like his old self, and so did the Cougars' powerful offense, gaining 469 total yards.  UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince left in the second quarter with a concussion and Richard Brehaut replaced him. Brehaut went 17 for 26 for 264 yards and two touchdowns.  The Bruins finished with 554 yards, but their defense couldn't stop Keenum and the Cougars.   READ MORE

 




Stony Brook 24 - (0-1, 0-1 away)
UTEP 31 - (1-0, 1-0 home)



UTEP 31, Stony Brook 24, OT - Nick Lamaison threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Donavon Kemp on UTEP's first play of overtime as the Miners escaped Stony Brook's upset bid in a 31-24 season-opening victory on Saturday night.  UTEP trailed the FCS Seawolves 24-10 in the third quarter. A pair of Lamaison touchdown passes to Eric Tomlinson, for 3 yards in the third quarter and 21 yards with 4:04 remaining in regulation, tied the game.  Lamaison was 24 of 38 for 365 yards with three TDs and two interceptions. Kemp had four receptions for 144 yards, and Mike Edwards caught seven passes for 85 yards.   READ MORE







(14) TCU 48 - (0-1, 0-1 away)
Baylor 50 - (1-0, 1-0 home)



Baylor blows 24-point lead but recovers to edge No. 14 TCU - Robert Griffin took the final snap and was swarmed by fans wearing Baylor gold.  One of the most-anticipated season openers in school history ended with a 50-48 victory over No. 14 TCU after almost turning into a monumental collapse.  Before Aaron Jones kicked the deciding 37-yard field goal with 1:04 left, Griffin had a 15-yard catch from star receiver Kendall Wright to convert a third and 10. That was probably the biggest pass play Friday night, even through Griffin threw a career-best five touchdown passes.  "It's big to show we can come out and win a game like that," Griffin said.   READ MORE






Northeastern St 3 - (0-1. 0-1 away)
UT-San Antonio 31 - (1-0, 1-0 home)

 

UTSA Kicks Off First Football Season With Win - Record Crowd In Attendance.  An NCAA record crowd turned out to support the UTSA Roadrunner football team in its inaugural game Saturday.  The more than 56,000 fans in attendance made up the largest crowd ever for a program's first game.  Fans threw tailgate parties in the Alamodome parking lot, then took their seats to watch the Roadrunners beat Northeastern State 31-3.   READ MORE





SMU 14 - (0-1, 0-1 away)
(8) Texas A&M 46 - (1-0, 1-0 home)


No. 8 Texas A&M runs away with opener days after conference announcement - Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael ran for two touchdowns apiece and Ryan Tannehill threw for two more scores to help No. 8 Texas A&M beat SMU 46-14 on Sunday night.  The Aggies were anxious to get on the field and bring the focus back to football instead of the school's decision to leave the Big 12. They got things going early, intercepting quarterback Kyle Padron's passes on SMU's first two possessions to jump out to a 14-0 lead.  SMU coach June Jones replaced Padron with backup J.J. McDermott after the early miscues and he helped the Mustangs cut it to 20-14 in the second quarter.  But the Mustangs couldn't do much offensively after that and the Aggies scored 26 straight points the rest of the way to secure the win.   READ MORE
