    As a Central Michigan student I may be biased in my analysis, but I'm struggling to see how Navy would beat the Chippewas in Mount Pleasant.

    Also 88, 75, and 68 yard runs against our defense? We may be a non BCS team but our Defense and team speed is much better than that man.

    We had a top 20 defense for a good portion of the season.

          In the East Bracket, #1 ranked Alabama rolls #8 East Carolina 37-13. The game was tight all the way into the final quarter, where the Tide outscored the Pirates, 25-3. The Tide's running game was anchored by huge performances from Heisman Winner Mark Ingram, who carried the ball for 180 yards on 29 carries, including a 68-yard TD. Trent Richardson was named player of the game with 141 yards on just 14 carries, including 2 touchdowns. Kicker Leigh Tiffin provided points for Alabama, nailing 5 of his 6 field goal tries. For the Pirates, Domonique Lindsay carried the ball 19 times for 125 yards and a 48-yard TD run. QB Patrick Pinkney was hasseled all day, completing just 9 of his 23 passes for 102 yards and an interception.

          #4 West Virginia halted #5 Pittsburgh in a rematch of the Backyard Brawl in Morgantown, WV by a final of 20-6. Noel Devine paced the Mountaineers with 141 yards on 26 carries and a TD. QB Jarrett Brown did just enough as he completed 11 of 17 passes for 109 yards, including a 12-yard TD pass. It was the Mountaineer defense that downed the Panthers however as star running back Dion Lewis was held to just 90 yards on 33 carries. Bill Stull was equally as disappointing, completing just 14 of his 27 attempts for 159 yards and an interception.

          #6 Nebraska sacked #14 South Carolina, 23-7. Roy Helu led the Huskers with a pair of TD runs among his 116 yard performance. Rex Burkhead added an additional 60 yards on the ground with just 11 carries. QB Zac Lee was just 13 of 25 for 123 yards and an interception against a fierce Gamecock defense. Unfortunately, the Gamecocks couldn't get anything going offensively as Kenny Miles was their lone bright spot with 92 yards and a TD on 16 carries. Stephen Garcia was an inefficient 14 of 32 passing with just 128 yards and a crucial interception.

          #2 Ohio State knocked off #10 Navy, 17-6. Daniel Herron and Brandon Saine combined for 152 yards rushing on 34 carries and each had short TD runs. Terrelle Pryor provided flashes as well, completing 10 of his 19 passes for 147 yards. Navy depended too much on their running game as QB Ricky Dobbs did not complete a single pass, and in fact, only attempted two. He did run for 48 yards on 18 carries. Vince Murray led the Midshipmen with 128 yards on 18 carries.

The Cougars' Harvey Unga kept BYU knocking with 126 yards and a TD, while Max Hall threw for 313 yards, with a pair of touchdowns, and an interception.
