Weekend College Football Wrap

A weekend of futility for my college football teams:

Notre Dame 27, Navy 9.

Quote of Note: "We'd have to have played mentally perfect to have a chance to win this game, and obviously we didn't do that," said [Navy] quarterback Aaron Polanco, who was held to 19 yards on 24 carries. "It's not like they're beating Southern Cal 41 times in a row," Navy coach Paul Johnson said. "They're beating an academy."

Stat of Note: Navy came in averaging 267 yards rushing, but led by defensive tackles Greg Pauly and Derek Landri, Notre Dame had six sacks and limited the Midshipmen to 216 yards rushing.

NC State 13, Maryland 3.

Quote of Note: Let's just listen to the Fridge explain it in his own words...

Good Sign of the Week: We're improving- N.C. State (4-2, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) permitted only 91 yards of offense, 31 after the Terrapins' first drive. It was the second straight defeat for the Terrapins (3-3, 1-2), who one week earlier managed only 81 yards in a 20-7 loss to Georgia Tech.

Stat of Note: Starting QB Joe Statham - 6-11-18-0. That 18 is no typo. Three Terps' QB's combined: 7-19-24-0. Again. No typos.

Wisconsin 20, Purdue 17.

Quote of Note: "There were plays there to be made," Purdue coach Joe Tiller said. "The defense had a chance to make a play to stop the drive and they didn't. The offense had a chance to make a play to keep a drive going, and they didn't. The kicking game had a chance to make a play and they didn't. When you don't make plays, you don't beat a team like Wisconsin."

Stat of Note: Purdue Heisman candidate QB Kyle Orton - 25-45-235-1, fumble. Posted by Hello
