Alexander Wennberg Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Five years after Utah running back Joe Williams and UCLA quarterback Mike Fafaul left Fork Union Military Academy together, they both posted record-breaking performances on the same wild afternoon.Only Williams left the Rose Bowl happy with his effort -- and his decision to get back in the game with the Utes.Williams rushed for a school-record 332 yards and four touchdowns in his second game back from retirement, and No. 19 Utah held off pass-happy UCLA 52-45 Saturday.Williams broke off TD runs of 3, 43, 64 and 55 yards during the greatest rushing day in Utah (7-1, 4-1 Pac-12) history, surpassing Mike Andersons 1999 record, and the most prolific rushing performance ever by a UCLA opponent.Im pretty sure [the Bruins] are tired of seeing the back of my jersey running down the field, Williams said, giving the credit to his offensive line. Weve got five grown men out there that could be in the NFL tomorrow. Im just glad to be running behind them.Cory Butler-Byrd returned the opening kickoff for a 99-yard touchdown on a day of stunning superlatives for the Utes in their second straight win at the Rose Bowl.Williams quit football last month before returning last week when injuries decimated Utahs depth, and he has 511 yards on the ground in two games since.Its awesome, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. Weve had some really good running backs come through here, and played against some inferior teams (compared to UCLA). He broke the record of all-time, and weve had a bunch of guys in the NFL, running backs that have done a lot of great things.Williams broke Andersons Utah record shortly before shredding Edgerrin James record for a Bruins opponent on his fourth scoring run with 10:28 to play.That young man had a world-class day against us, and thats disappointing because weve been playing the run so well, UCLA coach Jim Mora said.Williams didnt get a chance after the game to talk to Fafaul, his former high school teammate in Virginia.Fafaul made his own history, setting UCLA records for pass attempts (70) and completions (40) while throwing for 464 yards, third most in school annals. UCLA essentially abandoned its awful running game, which began the weekend ranked 126th out of 128 FBS teams.We wanted to do something to help our run game and catch the defense off-guard, Fafaul said. Its not about the records or my performance. I just wanted a victory, and its really disappointing.The former walk-on had five touchdown passes and four interceptions for the Bruins (3-5, 1-4) in their fourth loss in five games.Fafaul was prolific but erratic in his second straight start in place of injured Josh Rosen, who went through warmups but didnt play. Fafaul had the third-biggest passing performance in UCLA history, trailing only 500-yard games by Cade McNown and Drew Olson.THE TAKEAWAYUtah: Williams ran wild on a record afternoon, but the ground game behind a dominant offensive line only lessens the sting for a Utah defense that got beaten for several big plays with poor tackling. Whittingham wont be happy about the Utes inability to limit a backup quarterback and an offense with no running game.UCLA: After struggling to run the ball all season, the Bruins abruptly reverted back to the spread passing offense run by departed offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone. After running the ball just seven times in the first half, the Bruins didnt call another running play until the final snap of the third quarter. Its difficult from the standpoint that (the Utes) kind of know whats coming, Fafaul said.POLL IMPLICATIONSUtah: Injuries and defensive woes cant slow down the Utes, who appear to be Colorados biggest competition for the Pac-12 South title. The Utes should slide up a bit in the polls with a difficult late-season schedule looming.UP NEXTUtah: The Utes return home to host dominant Washington in one of the seasons biggest matchups in the topsy-turvy Pac-12.UCLA: After a bye, the Bruins continue chasing bowl eligibility with a Thursday night trip to suddenly powerful Colorado. Dalton Prout Blue Jackets Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Pierre-Luc Dubois Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.http://www.bluejacketshockeystore.us/Boone-Jenner-Jersey//>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Barry Brown paused during Friday nights postgame press conference when it appeared something was wrong. He stood up and tried to get rid of an oncoming charley horse.For Brown, that charley horse was well earned.Brown had 11 of his 18 points in the first half, and Kansas State opened the season with an 82-55 win over Western Illinois on Friday night.The thing I like is that he was very efficient, head coach Bruce Weber said about Brown.Going 7 for 11, six rebounds, three assists ... there were some times where I thought he needed to pass the ball a little bit quicker when the offense got stagnant. Weve had a lot of guys who played well but Barrys probably been the most consistent day in and day out.After a slow start by both teams, Browns offense got the Wildcats going first and they relinquished the lead only once in the first half. At one point, Brown had as many points as Western Illinois with at 11 apiece.Xavier Sneed and Wesley Iwundu added 17 points each for Kansas State while Garret Covington was the high man for Western Illinois with 17 points as well.Wasnt too nervous before the game, said Sneed who was in his college debut. Had a couple of butterflies. I think Ill be clear of them by the next game.Despite struggling from the field for a majority of the contest, the Wildcats led bby no less than eight in the second half. Anton Forsberg Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. . Kamau Stokes chipped in 11.Western Illinois struggled to be consistent from the field shooting 36.5 percent for the ballgame.STAT OF THE NIGHTAfter shooting 32 percent in the first half, the Wildcats shot 62.5 percent from the floor in the second, including 7 for 7 from the 3-point line.INJURIESKansas State forward Dante Williams was missing from Friday nights contest as he was going through the concussion protocol. Coach Weber is not sure he will be ready for Tuesdays contest against Omaha.BIG PICTUREWestern Illinois: The Leathernecks only one player other than Covington in double figures on the night as Dalan Ancrum scored 12 points.Kansas State: The win by Kansas State gives head coach Bruce Weber his 17th season-opening victory in his 19-year coaching career and the programs third straight since 2014.UP NEXTWestern Illinois: Two games await the Leathernecks at home against Oak Hills Christian and Southeast Missouri State before heading on the road to face Eastern Illinois.Kansas State: The Wildcats will host Omaha for the second game in a five-game home stand to start the season before going to the Barclays Center Classic. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
