Vanderbilt only got into CSU terr on one of their first five drives and that one only reached the C42. CSU drove for TD to open then got a short field TD following a Vandy fumble. But the Rams also missed 2 FGs that could've put them up 20-0. Instead they led 14-0 with 2min to go in the 1st H. Vandy deflected a punt setting the Dores up at the V42 and they drove for a TD with just :47 left before HT giving them life. Then Vandy made a diving INT early in the 2nd H and Vandy drove 53y for a tying TD (converted 4th down on the drive)! Vandy took their very next possession 75y to actually lead 21-14! Several punts were exchanged until 6min left in the game, CSU would go on a 67y TD drive to tie with just 3min left. CSU was called for D PI and then targeting and Vandy quickly found themselves at the C35! Vandy got to the C20 and made the game winning FG with just :19 left! CSU outgained them 445-342 (6.3-4.3) and Rams ran for 207(6.3) to Vandy's 104 (2.8). CSU missed 39 and 46 yard FGs.

BYU snapped a 9 game losing streak vs Utah! Utah opened with an INT, a fumble and a 3-and-out on their first three drives, gaining just 53y on those possessions. BYU also went 3-and-out on their first two drives, but after recovering the fumble in Utah terr BYU made a FG, then drove 14p 72y for TD and a 10-0 lead. Utah would score and a good punt ret set them up at midfield but that drive ultimately ended SOD at the B07. BYU drove 11p 93y for a 16-7 HT lead! BYU then made it 23-7. Utah scored on back-to-back drives in the 4th Q. 23-17. BYU would kill 6min on a long drive and added a FG with 3min left...26-17. Utah's final possession was SOD near midfield. BYU had a 368-340 (4.8-6.7) TY edge. Utah was -2 TOs and Utes had an empty RZ possession. Utes were just 2-of-9 on 3rd down.

Arizona State threw an INT into the EZ from the RZ on their opening possession. UNLV would actually lead 3-0 and 10-7 with back-to-back Rebel 70y scoring drives! After having 145y on their first two drives, UNLV would have just a total of 10 TEN net yards the rest of the game! ASU would be SOD at the LV30, punted twice from LV terr and kicked a 22y FG from the LV04 after having a 1st-and-goal at the LV05 with Daniels still in the game 3min left. ASU outgained them 462-155 (6.1-3.0) including 287 RY (6.1).

I'm tired. I might do one or two tomorrow yet.

Stanford took the first play of their second possession 87y for TD. USC went 3-and-out twice to open, in fact USC would go 3-and-out 5x in the game, half of their total possessions. Stanford built leads of 14-7, 14-10, 21-10, 21-13, 28-13, 35-13, 42-14! USC scored 2 TDs late 4th Q to make it look a little better than it was, but it was a game Stanford had total control of throughout. Before each team's final 2 possessions of the game, Stanford had a 366-264 TY edge! TY for the final game after USC garbage scores was 408-375 for SC. USC was trying to get back in the game trailing 13-21 after just kicking a RZ FG 3rd Q, they forced Stanford to punt but 3 plays later Tree got a pick-six (Kyu Blu) to end any comeback hope (USC went 3-and-out on their next 2 possessions immediately following the pick-six allowed). Tree QB Tanner McKee was the better QB in week 1 coming off the bench and got the start here...16-23-234-2-0. Tree had that 87y run and then only ran for 54y on 29 other carries. Avg was 4.7 with the 87y run in there. . Week 1 USC was only 1-for-4 scoring TDs in the RZ. This week they were better, but still just 3-for-5 TDs in RZ. Stanford was 4-for-4 TDs in the RZ. Stanford CB Kelly Kyu Blu shut down Drake London holding him to just 3rec-57y until London got a garbage score on an 11y catch late 4th Q.

Hawaii has had a rough start to the season, even in their win vs Portland St, the Warriors have shown in all 3 games so far they have problems. Those problems continued at Oregon State. Vs both PAC 12 opponents, Hawaii got off to slow starts. OSU built a 21-0 lead before UH found the EZ. UH opened the 3rd Q throwing back-to-back INTs which OSU converted into 7 pts. It was 31-7 when UH would convert a OSU fumble into 6 pts (2pt no good) and got as close as 31-20 before OSU got more separation 38-20. It was 45-27 in the final minutes of the game UH was driving for a garbage score (could've mattered for 2nd H spread), but on 4th-and-19 UH threw short over the middle and the receiver was tackled 1 yard short of keeping the drive alive. OSU had 558-454 TY edge (7.9-5.8) including 256-88 (6.1-3.0) RY. UH LB Darius Muasau was ejected for targeting 2nd H and will miss 1st H vs San Jose.
