Observations 9/17 Part 2

More games have gone final. Here are my observation from the next round of FBS finals...

San Diego State 42, Washington State 24
The Aztecs outscored WSU 28-7 in the second half and nullified a Cougar lead, essentially bringing WSU back to Earth after two huge weeks of winning. Ryan Lindley passed for 273 yards and 2 scores, and Ronnie Hillman rushed for 4 TDs for the Aztecs in the win.

Ball State 28, Buffalo 25
The Cardinals are showing signs of life under Pete Lembo, and they are very much alive early in the MAC. Buffalo, not so much.

UL-Lafayette 38, Nicholls State 21
It was not a great win for ULL, but Mark Hudspeth will take any wins that he can get while building a program with the Ragin' Cajuns.

Ohio 44, Marshall 7
The Bobcats jumped out to a 34-7 lead at the half, and we are left wondering when the real Marshall squad will stand up. The Bobcats rolled up 562 yards of total offense in the win.

Southern Mississippi 21, SE Louisiana 0
The Eagles are pretty bad. They should have dominated the Lions. So much for the offensive guru in Larry Fedora.

Kansas State 37, Kent State 0
Who hasn't beaten the shit out of Kent State this season? Anyone in Ohio thinking that the Darrell Hazell hire was a good one? Anybody? Anyone?

Illinois 17, Arizona State 14
Huge test passed by the Fighting Illini. Huge test failed by Arizona State. Will ASU bounce back? Will Illinois coontinue to win after going 3-0. Many questions still exist for both programs.

Houston 35, Louisiana Tech 34
Houston had to score 21 points in the 4th quarter to put off the upset. Conference USA is a major mess, and Houston did nothing to repair the image issues.

Indiana State 44, Western Kentucky 16
As huge a win as this was for the Sycamores, it was equally ugly for WKU. Ronnie Fouch tossed 3 TD passes for the Sycamores.

Missouri 69, Western Illinois 0
The Tigers set a school record by rolling up 750 yards, while allowing the Leathernecks only 40 yards in the easy win over FCS WIU.

South Florida 70, Florida A&M 17
The Bulls rolled to an easy win that was basically a scrimmage for them. That is how you handle an FCS opponent, Southern Miss.

Texas A&M 37, Idaho 7
The Aggies coasted to a 27-0 lead at the half and never looked back. Jeff Fuller became the A&M all-time leading receiver.

Louisville 24, Kentucky 17
The Cardinals bounced back strong after a rough loss last week to take out their arch rival in what was an extremely ugly game. Kentucky is looking towards a potentially ugly rest of the season.

Alabama 41, North Texas 0
The Crimson Tide coasted over yet another patsy this season (beat Kent State two weeks ago). Alabama is in control right now, but the SEC schedule is still to come.

Miami 24, Ohio State 6
The Buckeyes really are that bad right now. Miami is not playing like Miami, yet it was still enough to smack down OSU in the Cheater Bowl.

More finals coming up!
