Conference USA member Central Florida, one of Ohio State’s 2012 opponents, beat Ball State of the Mid-American Conference on Friday night in the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl, 38-17.

The game took place at St. Petersburg, Florida at Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball.

Bortles completed 22 of 33 passes without an interception.

Ball State, which finishes the season at 9-4, had high hopes of winning 10 games for only the third time in school history, but its usually high-scoring offense was held to a season-low point total by a swarming, speedy Knights defense. The Cardinals saw their six-game winning streak come to an end.

Bortles, who led the Knights to a 10-4 record, passed for 272 yards to become the first QB to throw for 3,000 yards since 2002. A solid runner, he also led the team on the ground, rushing nine times for a career-best 80 yards.

Cardinals quarterback Keith Wenning was 22 of 34 passing for 217 yards and two touchdowns.

Brendan Gibbons kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime to give 13th-ranked Michigan to a 23-20 win over #17 Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

The win ended a comeback to the heights of college football for the Michigan program under first-year head coach Brady Hoke, who led the Wolverines to an 11-2 record a BCS game.

QB Denard Robinson did not dominate the game, but threw touchdown passes of 45 and 18 yards to Junior Hemingway.

Robinson was 9 of 21 passes for 117 yards for 117 yards and an interception and rushed for only 13 yards.

Hemingway was selected as the player of the game for his two-touchdown effort. He finished the game with two pass receptions for 63 yards.

Virginia Tech, who finished the year at 11-3, more than doubled Michigan’s offensive total yardage, 377 to 184, and collected 22 first downs to the Wolverines’ 12 but had trouble scoring TD’s and settle for four field goals in regulation by placekicker Justin Myer, a third-stringer.

Unfortunately, Myer missed on his fifth field goal try from 37 yards out on the opening possession of overtime.

GAME NOTES:

*The Virginia Tech Hokies under Frank Beamer at 11-3 did not win a conference championship. They lost twice to Clemson by a combined 48 points, including a 38-10 humiliation in the ACC title game.

*In BCS games, the Hokies are 1-5.

*The Hokies strong pass rush created 38 sacks in 2011.

*Virginia Tech relied on their 12th-ranked defense to control games.

*Michigan’s are 12th in the nation in rushing with 235.7 yards a game, and QB Denard Robinson (96.9-yard average) and RB Fitzgerald Toussaint (91.9) were the big-time playmakers.

*Michigan head coach Brady Hoke turned around Ball State, San Diego State and now Michigan and earned the 2011 Big Ten Coach of the Year honors.

*The Wolverines’ BCS record is 2-3.

* Denard Robinson ended the year with some impressive totals: rushed for 1,163 yards and passed for 2,056 yards and accounted for 34 touchdowns overall.

The Air Force Academy was thrilled when it was selected to play in the Military Bowl in our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C.

The Falcons will play the high-scoring Toledo Rockets. It’s an honor for the service academy who will be making its fifth straight bowl appearance.

The Rockets will be a tough opponent to defeat. They’re eighth in college football in scoring at 42.3 ppg, which includes five games in a row where they scored at least 44 points to end the regular season.

Both teams have offenses, but defense has been a weakness for both. Take Toledo for example, they lost to Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois, 63-60. Unbelievable!

Air Force averages 34.3 points per game and averages 320.3 in rushing per game.

Air Force comes into the game at 7-5, Toledo at 8-4.

Toledo has WR/KR Eric Page, who is speedy and elusive. He had a big-time performance in the season finale against Ball State, a 45-28 win, where he caught 16 passes for 145 yards.

Eventhough Indiana has struggled as a team this year, their offense has had its moments.

The Hoosiers have scored 20 points vs. Ball State, 31 vs. Virginia, 38 vs. South Carolina State, 21 vs. North Texas, 20 vs. Illinois, 24 against Iowa and 38 against Northwestern.

Leading the way is true freshman quarterback Tre Roberson who threw for 169 yards against Northwestern last week with a touchdown. He also ran for a TD while gaining a career-high 121 yards on the ground.

Roberson is the first true freshman to ever start at QB for IU and the 12th nationally in 2011. He celebrated his 19th birthday by becoming the third Hoosier to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors in 2011.

Roberson is very dangerous throwing an running ala OSU’s Braxton Miller.

He did earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors two weeks ago at Iowa.

In Big Ten play, Roberson is seventh in total offense (196.0 per game) and eighth in rushing (65.0). Michigan’s Denard Robinson is the lone quarterback with a higher per game rushing average (68.2).

Roberson earned the state of Indiana’s 2010 Mr. Football Award at Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis. He passed for 2,611 yards, 24 touchdowns and four interceptions and rushed for 1,992 yards and 22 TD’s.

He comes from an athletic background as his grandfather, Larry Highbaugh, played defensive back and ran track at Indiana from 1968-71. Highbaugh played briefly with the Dallas Cowboys, then spent 13 years in the Canadian Football League and was inducted into that league’s Hall of Fame in 2004.

 

 

IU’s offense ranks 75th in the nation with 378 total yards per game and it ranks 89th nationally with 22 points per game.
