Feature Game Follow up, NCAA College Football Week 9

Well, we picked UCF to win the game.  We said if it turned into a shootout, Temple would not win, and they didn’t.  We did however, think the game was going to be a lot closer than it was.  We’re now 4-3-1 versus the spread.  BOOOOOOO!  Why didn’t we just pick Michigan again?

UCF @ Temple

Last night I Tweeted, “I don’t understand how Temple can be the only team to beat Memphis, and then lose to UCF by 42 at home.”  There’s probably not a better way to start this follow up so, I say again….

I don’t understand how Temple can be the only team to beat Memphis and then lose to UCF by 42 at home?  The final score of last night’s game was 63-21, and UCF improved their overall record to 6-2.  They also gained some leadway over the now 5-3 Owls in the American Athletic-East Division, but both teams still tail first place Cincinnati.

The Golden Knights dominated Temple last night, and UCF might not be that undefeated team who’s knocking on the playoff door, like they were last year, but they’re still very good.  UCF’s defense picked off Temple QB Anthony Russo twice, and they held RB Ray Davis to 26 yards on 12 carries!  That’s 2.2 yards per carry!

Temple’s Senior RB Jager Gardner was held to 13 yards on 11 carries!  Gardner did have a touchdown though, but still man, that’s 39 yards of rushing between both of them.

QB Dillon Gabriel was sensational last night.  He completed 10 passes for 218 yards, and he tossed 3 touchdown passes (no interceptions).  UCF was also able to run the ball at will last night.  RB Otis Anderson (1 td) rushed for 205 yards on 17 carries, and teammate Bentavious Thompson (2 touchdowns) rushed for another 87.

Temple was held scoreless in the second half.  Next week, Temple plays South Florida.

It was another week of good college football.  We saw Penn State beat Michigan State 28-7, and we also saw Minnesota manhandle Maryland 52-10.  What about Ohio State?  The Buckeyes dominated Wisconsin 38-7, and all three remain perfect in the Big 10. This was also a weekend of upsets.  TCU beat (15)Texas 37-27, Kansas State won 48-41 against the number five Sooners, and Oklahoma State beat (23)Iowa State 34-27.  Breaking into the Top 25 seems to be Iowa’s curse because every time they do, they lose.  What the heck?  Alright everyone, we’ll see you Thursday.  Don’t forget, on Halloween, Thursday, October 31st, it’s the Table Seven Top 6 in the morning at 6 o’clock, and the Feature Game Analysis in the afternoon at 3:00 pm.  NCAA College Football Week 10 coming up!  Have a good week.
