College Football Sunday Outlook

Sunday, September 28, 2008 ·

The "white-out" worked again to perfection in Happy Valley against Illinois. Penn State Derrick Williams' 241 total yards including a rush, a receiving, and a return touchdown helped Penn State improve to 5-0 for the first time since 2005 with a 38-24 victory.

Williams had the break out game that everyone at Penn State had been waiting for over the last four years. He's going to need more as the Nittany Lions begin a tough 5 game stretch, with four road games including at Wisconsin and at Ohio State. With the big win and the top 10 collapse, I'd expect Penn State to rise to 6 or 7. Just something to look at it, though I don't believe it hold a lot of value. Oregon State just dominated USC. Penn State beat Oregon State by 31.

Temple lost their homecoming game 7-3 at Lincoln Financial Field. It has been a tough year for Owls as 3 of the 4 losses have been by 4 points or less. 3 of those 4 games, they've held late leads. With quarterback Adam DiMichele going down last week against Penn State, it's going to be an extremely tough road for the Owls to get back into MAC championship contention. Temple travels to Miami of Ohio next week.

Lastly, there was a huge Football Championship Subdivision upset. #19 Villanova beat top-ranked Richmond 26-20 at Villanova Stadium. Nova ran the ball for 226 yards against Richmond. The big win will likely move Villanova way up in the standings. Villanova travels to William & Mary next weekend.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
