THURSDAY NIGHT COLLEGE FOOTBALL:Oregon will stay Number 1 with 60-13 annihilation of UCLA

The University of Oregon Ducks had no problem winning a game while ranked Number 1.

While the past two Number 1 teams stumbled, Alabama lost at South Carolina two weeks ago and Ohio State got beat at Wisconsin last Saturday, the Ducks hammered UCLA 60-13 Thursday night in it’s first-ever game as the nation’s Number 1 team.

QB Darron Thomas set career highs in completions (22), attempts (31) and passing yards (308) and three touchdowns.

LaMicheal James, the Number 1 rusher in college football, ran for 123 yards and two scores for the Ducks.

If Oregon had lost, that would’ve been three straight weeks an AP Top 25 team had lost. The last time that happened was in 1960, when Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri all lost.

Buckeyes run into a nightmare at Wisconsin; lose 31-18


The scoreboard says it all (


MADISON, WISCONSIN — From the opening kickoff and throughout the first half of play Saturday afternoon, it just seemed like the Number 1 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes were not going to be able to win the game.

81,194 hostile fans at Camp Randall Stadium were treated to a couple the upset win they had hoped for, 31-18 over Ohio State.

The Badgers came out ready to play from the start. As evident by the opening kickoff.

Wisconsin kick returner David Gilreath return Drew Basil’s opening kickoff return 97 yards to the end zone and in 12 seconds, the home team had gotten the crowd into the game.

Gilreath’s opening kickoff return was Wisconsin’s first kickoff return for a touchdown since Lee Evans’ 34-yarder against Indiana on November 11, 2000. It is tied for the fourth-longest kickoff return in school history and is the longest for the Badgers since Aaron Stecker’s 100-yard return against Minnesota on November 11, 1995. Furthermore, his kickoff return is the first time Wisconsin returned the opening kickoff of the game for a touchdown since October 28, 1989, when Fred Owens returned the game’s first kickoff 96 yards vs. Illinois.

On the Badgers’ second possession, they moved the ball at will on the Buckeyes’ defense and running back John Clay rushed 14 yards for a touchdown and just like that it was 14-0 with 10:00 remaining in the first quarter.

The lead grew to 21-0 in the second quarter when once again, John Clay shredded the Ohio State defense with a 1-yard dive at the 13:15 mark.

The Buckeyes looked very sluggish in the first half. They had two drives into the red zone and came away with placekicker Devin Barclay converting on one of two field goal attempts, to make it 21-3.

So, Ohio State’s run as the Number 1 team ends after just one week. And for the second week in a row, there will be a new Number 1 as Alabama lost at South Carolina last Saturday.

For the Buckeyes, being Number 1 hasn’t been too kind. This makes three losses in a row in that position. In 2007 to Illinois and in the BCS title game to LSU.

Prior to Saturday’s game, Wisconsin had lost three in a row to the Buckeyes.

In the second half, the OSU offense came alive with Terrelle Pryor’s passing, Daniel Herron’s running and the catching of Dane Sanzenbacher. However, their drives were very long ; two 10-play drives and one of 19 plays. Those long drives are fine if you’re ahead or if you’re driving for the winning touchdown and trying chew up time so the other team won’t have much time to work with when they get the ball back.

* Saturday night was Wisconsin’s fourth-ever win over the nation’s Number 1-ranked team and the school’s first since beating Michigan, 21-14, on September 12, 1981.

* With the win, the Badgers are now 41-4 at Camp Randall Stadium since the start of the 2004 season.

* Wisconsin has now won 14 of its last 15 home games, including the last seven in a row.

* With Wisconsin’s John Clay gaining 104 yards on 21 carries, it broke a streak of 29 games since the Buckeyes defense has allowed a 100-yard individual rushing performance; that was Southern California’s Joe McKnight, who gained 105 yards on 12 carries in the 2008 meeting in the Los Angeles Coliseum. That streak was the second-longest in the nation, trailing only Alabama who has 37.

South Carolina surprises #1 Alabama, 35-21

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier finally got the biggest win of his tenure in Columbia, South Carolina.

Stephen Garcia threw three touchdown passes, two to Alshon Jeffrey and Marcus Lattimore scored three times as the 19th rated Gamecocks stunned Number 1 Alabama 35-21 Saturday.

The defending national-champion Crimson Tide had won 19 straight games, including last week’s 31-6 shellacking of Florida and had not lost since the Sugar Bowl after the 2008 season to Utah.

South Carolina, who is 4-1 overall, 2-1 in the SEC, had never beaten a Number 1 team in four previous games.

Spurrier, in his sixth season at South Carolina, had the players to upset Alabama using the Tide’s formula of speedy running backs and elusive wide receivers.

South Carolina depleted the country’s top-rated scoring defense, putting up the most points on Alabama (5-1, 2-1 SEC) since a 41-34 loss to LSU in 2007.

The Gamecocks scored four touchdowns when they got inside the Alabama 20 which was doubled what the Crimson Tide had allowed coming into the game.

The running back duo of Alabama, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson were held to 64 yards on the ground.

Cavaliers add Sessions and Hollins; rid themselves of troubled West


The Cleveland Cavaliers made a multi-player trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, trading away troubled guard Delonte West and seldom-used point guard Sebastian Telfair to the Minnesota Timberwolves for point guard Ramon Sessions, 7-footer Ryan Hollins and a future second-round pick.

Sessions is a quick, pick-and-roll specialist who spent last season backing up rookie Jonny Flynn on the Wolves.

Sessions averaged 8.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting with 3.1 assists in a career-low 21.1 minutes per game last season. He signed a four-year, $16 million deal to join Minnesota before last season. The South Carolina native is a very close friend of Cavaliers guard Mo Williams from their days with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Hollins, who is 25-years-old, is a super-athletic, very raw, forward-center, almost like J.J. Hickson was when he came out of college. He averaged 6.1 points and 2.8 rebounds last year for the T-Wolves.

Cleveland did all they could to work with and help keep Delonte West out of trouble, but he was always having off-the-court issues.

West pleaded guilty in Maryland earlier this month to weapons charges. He was sentenced to eight months of home detention with electronic monitoring, two years of unsupervised probation, 40 hours of community service and  psychological counseling.

His sentencing would allow West to attend practices and travel to NBA games as his team’s schedule requires. The NBA is reviewing the case for possible league discipline.

West averaged 8.8 points and 3.3. assists in 25 minutes per game.
