I could write some boring intro to hook you all into this article. Tell you why you should keep reading, promise exciting twists and turns and ultimately, leave you with a satisfying ending.
You may get one of three depending on which team you root for.
You already know the story if you read Part One, so let's jump right in.
Hawaii 41, Wyoming 14
All 'Bows from the start. Hawaii scored 31 first half points and racked up nearly 450 yards of offense doing it. Wittek threw for four touchdowns with 235 yards passing in the win.
San Jose State 28, UNLV 10
will someone please help UNLV.
Fresno State 35, San Diego State 17
The battle nearly the top of the West Division. Fresno controlled the game with over 500 yards of offense while holding the Aztecs to just 200. Zack Greenlee threw for 351 yards and four touchdowns for the 'Dogs. Donnel Pumphrey is held to just 47 rushing yards.
Colorado State 28, Air Force 24
Air Force can't catch a break this year. The Falcons took a lead into the fourth and lost it after a late touchdown catch from Rashard Higgins. Colorado State wins despite four picks from Nick Stevens.
Nevada 30, Utah State 15
Chuckie got his job back! :D
But he couldn't manage a touchdown against Nevada. He racked up nearly 300 all-purpose yards, but the Aggies manage to put just five field goals on the board against the Wolfpack. Nevada's Don Jackson and James Butler combine for 180 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
Boise State 38, New Mexico 10
I really hope this New Mexico team doesn't play UNLV.
Navy 35, Air Force 14
The Falcons keep on falling. Three straight losses. This time, it's to rival Navy. The Midshipmen dominate from whistle to whistle. Navy rolls up over 250 rushing yards on Air Force.
Colorado State 40, Nevada 14
Nevada goes from "upsetting" Utah State to getting absolutely destroyed by the Rams. After a four pick outing last week, Nick Stevens rebounds with four touchdown passes against the Wolfpack.
Utah State 24, Wyoming 19
Chuckie had a better day. So did the entire offense as a matter of fact. 200 yards through the air and 200 on the ground, more than 300 of that total came from the man himself. Wyoming scores with :16 left and tries the onside kid with no avail.
Fresno State 51, UNLV 14
it's not funny anymore, this is straight up bullying. Fresno hangs over 500 on the Rebels and holds UNLV to under 200 yards of offense. Marteze Waller rushes for 111 yards and two scores. He has now appeared on the "Heisman Watch" page.
San Jose State 28, New Mexico 10
This game still got better ratings than the new "Fantastic Four" movie. New Mexico is still winless this season.
San Diego State 42, Hawaii 23
Pumphrey puts on a show in San Diego with 143 rushing yards and three second half touchdowns to knock off New Coach and Hawaii. The 'Bows still have just one win this year. Rumors in the athletic department have mentioned bringing in former USC assistant Norm Chow to replace New Coach at the end of the year.
Wyoming 27, Air Force 10
Four straight losses for Air Force. Despite outgaining the 'Pokes 351-293, four Falcons turnovers keep the offense from having any success on the day. Wyoming wins their first conference game of the season.
Fresno State 38, Boise State 23
BOISE STATE FANS IT'S A VIDEO GAME PLEASE CALM DOWN AND DON'T BURN MY HOUSE DOWN.
BSU outgains Fresno by almost 100 yards, and even held now Heisman candidate Marteze Waller to just 37 rushing yards, but three Ryan Finely interceptions held the Broncos down.
Utah State 31, San Jose State 30
No Chuckie praise this time. He threw four picks.
Okay, I lied, there is going to be some Chuckie praise coming.
The Spartans were up 27-7 with five minutes left in the third. USU cut into that lead after Keeton hit Brandon Swindall for a 19-yard score. The next drive, Brian Suite picks off Joe Gray and takes the ball 70 yards back to the house to make it 27-21 SJSU. Following a Joe Hill TD run to take the lead, the Spartans drive back down the field and kick a 41-yarder to take a 30-28 lead with 2:55 to play.
Here comes the Chuckie praise.
He leads the Aggies down inside the 20, where USU nails a 27-yarder with :22 left to take the lead and win the game.
Football is a beautiful sport.
San Diego State 28, Colorado State 21
It would be difficult for anyone to follow that game up, but CSU and SDSU tried their best. The Rams had their four game win streak snapped thanks to (guess who?) Donnel Pumphrey running the dang ball the way BOBO SHOULD'VE BEEN DOING. Pumphrey ran for 150 yards and a score, with two receiving TDs as well.
UNLV 21, Nevada 14
This game was cookie-cutter as hell but UNLV IS NOT TAKING ANYMORE OF YOUR CRAP, NCAA 13. UNLV IS A STRONG REBEL WHO DON'T NEED NO MAN, BECAUSE THEY GOT THE CANNON BACK. Blake Decker throws for three touchdowns to give UNLV their first win of the year. Nevada's bowl hopes take a huge hit.
BYU 34, Hawaii 17
Remember how I said the scheduling wasn't going to be perfect. Well, since Hawaii plays 13 games, there were only so many opponents available this week of the season. So, I went ahead a scheduled a familiar opponent in BYU. The Cougars tally 577 yards of offense in the win.
Air Force 34, New Mexico 27
AIR FORCE FINALLY WON ANOTHER GAME....oh. Poor New Mexico...again.
San Diego State 23, Nevada 17
Nevada drops its third game in a row, and most likely, an opportunity to play in a bowl game this year. The Wolfpack held a 17-13 lead with five minutes to play, before allowing ten unanswered points from the Aztecs to drop a heartbreaker in Reno. First losing the Cannon, now this? What next?
Fresno State 48, Wyoming 23
Fresno keeps winning convincingly, and still hold the tiebreaker after beating SDSU a few weeks back. Zach Greenlee throws five touchdowns with 348 yards, and Marteze Waller continues his Heisman hunt with 160 all-purpose yards and three scores.
UNLV 31, Boise State 28 (OT)
I MEAN HAHAHAHAHA.
UNLV is about to win seven straight games aren't they.
The Rebs went into the locker room with a 14-3 lead before BSU responded with 15 unanswered points to start the third quarter. UNLV answered back with a goal line TD run to end the third quarter. The teams then traded scores to make 28-25 Rebs with three minutes to play. The Broncos marched down the field and hit a 31-yarder as time expired to send it into OT. Rebels win after kicking a field goal then intercepting Ryan Finley in the first overtime.
It's still pretty funny.
Utah State 37, Hawaii 34 (OT)
This was fun. And also sad.
That QB from Utah State (I know you guys are tired of his name by now) had 300 all-purpose yards and three scores, including the game-tying TD pass to JoJo Natson (he didn't get kicked off the team in this universe) with :17 to play.
Hawaii kicks a field goal to start overtime, with Utah State ending the game by Joe Hill punching it in from two yards out to give the Aggies the overtime victory.
Colorado State 48, Savannah State 17
BORING FCS GAME.
Standings after eight weeks:
|San Diego State||(5-1)||(6-2)|
|San Jose State||(2-4)||(2-5)|
