Re: NCAA week 5

Well week 5 is in the books for the USF Bulls (we’re ranked #20 in the media poll).  And we travelled to NC State (who just got crushed by Ja514).  We took advantage early and were up 21-0 at the half.  Second half was a little tougher, we both scored 3 tds.  So it ended up being 42-21, not as good as Ja514 but thats ok.  The offense showed up this week only punting on the first possession and then scoring on the 7 we got after that.  The defense started out good but faded late, still a work in progress.  Overall pretty happy with a road win against a BCS opponent.

Stats:

Matt Grothe, QB: 16-18 for 328 yards with 5 tds and no ints.  Good game today, ran the option well, 5 tds to 4 different receivers and no turnovers!!

Mike Ford, RB:  6 rushes 36 yards and a td.  Did most of his damage cathing the ball, 4 catches for 144 yards and 2 tds.  Great game for him overall, still need to work on the running game.

Other Receivers:

Carlton Mitchell, WR: 4 catches for 104 yards and a td.  Did good in the return game too, 3 kick returns for 79 yards and 2 punt returns for 23 yards.  200 yard day, not too bad and only a sophomore.

Overall pretty happy with the team.   We are young, QB is a junior, starting RB is a sophomore and my top 2 receivers this game are sophomores, we can be better next year.
