College Football: Social Saturday Live Game DayCoverage – Week 1 – #DYCGameDay


 

This is a new one for us, so who knows how it will work out, but I think it could be fun.  Over the course of the day we will periodically update what we’re watching, what we’re seeing and what we’re doing.  More importantly, however, we want your thoughts.  Tweet using the hashtag #DYCGameDay and tell us what you’re watching, what you liking, etc. and we’ll throw it up on this live feed.  It’s that easy.

 

5:08 p.m. – Andrew

This West Virginia performance is stunning.  Ain’t no Mountaineer ever been ‘fraid of no Tide.

Unrelated: go here to get to my live Georgia/Clemson blog.

 

3:52 p.m. – Andrew

Alas, my upset darlings Navy and Georgia Southern came up short.  Nonetheless, the early games offered plenty of entertainment.  A few final scores of interest:

  • Penn State 26, UCF 24
  • UCLA 28, Virginia 20
  • North Dakota State 34, Iowa State 14
  • Michigan 52, App State 14
  • Ohio State 34, Navy 17
  • Kentucky 59, Tennessee-Martin 14
  • NC State 24, Georgia Southern 23
  • Georgia Tech 38, Wofford 19

 

Viewing Priorities:

  1. Alabama vs. West Virginia: Tied 3-3 after one possession for each team.  Mountaineers are driving.
  2. Auburn vs. Arkansas – a few minutes away on SEC Network
  3. Missouri vs. South Dakota State – this was my upset alert half-way pick.

 

I’ll be starting a live blog at Bleacher Report for the Georgia/Auburn game in about 40 minutes. Link forthcoming but I’ll be absent for the most part during that game.

UCLA’s struggles against Virginia should not be overlooked.  I will dwell on that for the remainder of the season.  Trust me.

But on to what matters, can Georgia Southern hold on???

Huge fourth down conversion for Ohio State.  I love the fact that I can say that and mean it and the game is still up for grabs.

2:45 p.m. – Andrew

Georgia Southern continues to lead by 10 points.  If Southern and Navy pull off these wins Paul Johnson will get a contract extension at Georgia Tech by association to the triple-option offense.  Somehow, Tech fans will claim that the Yellow Jackets are 2-0 with wins over NC State and Ohio State.

Navy gets an FG and trails 20-17.

In theory, Ohio State could be what people think Ohio State is at any time and bust them open.  In practice, Navy has looked ….Damn.  as I typed that a bomb went off.

FOOTBALL IS FUN!

Them Georgia Southern Eagles, though.  Not that NC State should have been expected to not disappoint, but still.  A 17-3 edge for Georgia Southern really might be insurmountable given the Eagles’ affinity for holding the football.

1:37 p.m.  – Andrew

I’m not sure that the literal three points left off the board there will cost Navy this game, but the momentum lost certainly hurts.  Some clock management issues and a missed field goal sucked some wind out of what was a stellar first half for the Midshipmen.

Elsewhere, UCLA has really opened things up thanks to a host of huge defensive plays.

New fun game to watch: Georgia Southern leading NC State 10-3.

Jason Smith has breaking Georgia/Clemson news…

 

 

1:10 p.m. – Andrew

Just when Ohio State was starting to “look like” Ohio State, Navy came up with a huge interception inside the five-yard line.  Reading that flat route was incredibly impressive.  Instinctive, athletic, well-executed.  That’s Navy football right now.

Virginia continues to keep things interesting.  UCLA holds a 7-3 advantage, but the Bruins certainly aren’t looking like a Top 5 team against a foe that’s won just a handful of games over the past two seasons.

“Navy’s got athletes, too,” as Gary Danielson just pointed out a few moments ago.  And those athletes are doing work.  The Midshipmen currently lead 7-3 early in the second quarter.

Meanwhile, Michigan is comfortably up 14-0 and thus getting bumped out of my viewing rotation.

Quite pleasantly, Virginia is looking tough against UCLA.  The Bruins just went ahead 7-0.

12:10 p.m. – Andrew

My early game priorities are as follow:

  1. Ohio State vs. Navy – Because why not?  Navy’s definitely covering and nothing would be more magical than the Buckeyes following, except maybe…
  2. Michigan vs. App State – It can’t happen again, can it?  Admittedly this won’t be on the radar for long (unless the Mountaineers do work), but it’s still fun.
  3. UCLA vs. Virginia – UCLA is a trendy playoff pick and Virginia is Virginia.  Could get ugly, but I want to see the Bruins play.
  4. Tennessee-Martin vs. Kentucky – Wildcats pickup a rare win here, I expect.
