Trey Burton breaks Tim Tebow's record with 6 TDs in Florida's rout

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Trey Burton switched numbers this week, going from 13 to 8. Maybe he should have put on Florida's familiar No. 15.

He sure looked like Tim Tebow. A smaller, faster version anyway.

Burton scored six touchdowns, breaking the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner's school record, and the ninth-ranked Gators beat Kentucky for the 24th consecutive time, 48-14 Saturday night........READ MORE CLICK BELOW.

Randall Cobb contributes to three TDs three ways as Kentucky wins

Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Randall Cobb did it all, accounting for three touchdowns to lead Kentucky to a 63-28 victory over Western Kentucky on Saturday night.

The junior wide receiver caught a score, threw for another and returned a punt 50 yards to the end zone as the Wildcats (2-0) outclassed the Hilltoppers to post their 17th straight regular season nonconference win.
Quarterback Mike Hartline completed 16 of 20 passes for 213 yards and tied a career-high with three touchdowns. Derrick Locke ran for 102 yards and a score as Kentucky overpowered the Hilltoppers (0-2) when it mattered.

Seahawks To Workout LB Danny Trevathan, March 31, 2012

Former Leesburg High School standout Danny Trevathan at the University of Kentucky
We did this last year a bit and we'll try to keep that tradition going again this year by keeping track of all the visits and workouts the Seahawks coordinate with potential Draft picks in the run-up to the big show on April 26th-28th. According to the twitters and the internets, the Seahawks have already lined up at least two visits, with countless more on the books I'm sure. The two I've seen are with LB Danny Trevathan and DL Matt Conrath.

Danny Trevathan is an undersized linebacker out of Kentucky that was 2nd-Team All-SEC after leading that conference in tackles last year. He's 6'0, 237 with long 32 1/2" arms - was a Combine invite, and put up 18 reps of 225, had a broad jump of 9'3", a vert of 31.5" and sat out the rest of the drills.

Tory Harrison: Beef need every point to hold off Cavalry, March 28, 2012

Tory Harrison celebrates after a touchdown during the Omaha Beef's win over Wyoming. Harrison ran for 84 yards and scored two touchdowns.

Omaha erupted for 23 points in the second quarter and 21 in the fourth. The Beef ended up needing every one of them as Omaha outlasted winless Wyoming 54-52 in IFL action Saturday at the Civic Auditorium.

The teams traded blows all night in a game featuring five lead changes, plenty of offense and the defensive lapses that helped create that offense.

Beef defensive back Cortney Grixby left the game in the second quarter with an undetermined injury and didn't return.

Omaha coach Bruce Cowdrey said his young corps of defensive backs was not up to task of filling Grixby's shoes.

“When we lost Grixby in the secondary, we lost our veteran leadership out there,” Cowdrey said. “That was one of the worst defensive games we've ever played. The rookies didn't play well, and they've got to do that.”



Omaha's James McNear completed 23 of 28 passes for 253 yards and five touchdowns.

Omaha trailed 6-3 after the first quarter until a big play by Grixby, who returned a missed field goal 54 yards to give Omaha its first lead at 10-6.

Kwaheem Smith, who had three interceptions in the first half of Omaha's season opener two weeks ago, added another as he picked off former Chadron State player Matt Strand on the next play from scrimmage to set up the Beef at the Cavalry 11.

McNear struck quickly for Omaha, hooking up with Tory Harrison on the next play for an 11-yard score to give the Beef a 16-6 lead.

Wyoming drew within a point, 26-25, on its opening possession of the third quarter when Strand tallied his third touchdown pass of the game, 13 yards to Jasonus Tillery.



Holding a 40-38 lead, McNear drove Omaha 45 yards in three plays, hitting Alan Burrell with an 18-yard touchdown pass to give the Beef a 47-38 lead with 1:56 left.

A 33-yard touchdown run by Harrison made it 54-45 Omaha with 50 seconds remaining, but left enough time for Strand to complete an 11-yard TD pass to LaVaughn Macon to draw back to 54-52.

“What do you do? Tell a kid not to score? I mean (Harrison's) going to score. He ran hard all night,” Cowdrey said

Omaha (2-1) takes on the Green Bay Blizzard next Saturday, followed by a second meeting with the Wichita Wild on April 6.

Tory Harrison: Green Bay Edges Omaha in Waning Seconds, March 29, 2011


The Green Bay Blizzard (3-1) had two full weeks to prepare for Saturday night's road matchup with the Omaha Beef (2-2) and every minute of that preparation proved necessary as they escaped from the Omaha Civic Auditorium with a 42-37 victory.

The two teams were evenly matched all night with the largest lead for either team being Green Bay's nine point lead early in the second quarter.  Trailing by one point with 36 seconds remaining, Donovan Porterie unleashed a pass from midfield that landed in the sure hands of a leaping Bryan Pray right before he flipped over the boards in the back of the end zone to provide the winning margin.  Still, the Blizzard couldn't celebrate until 24 seconds later when defensive lineman James McClinton sacked Beef quarterback James McNear on second down and the clock expired.

Omaha drew first blood when Tory Harrison weaved his way through the Blizzard defense for an 11 yard touchdown run on the Beef's first possession. Green Bay's offense answered immediately with a Desmond Tardy touchdown reception from 34 yards out, but Adrian Trevino's extra point was batted away.  McNear responded to that score with a touchdown strike of his own to Leroy Banks to grab a 14-6 lead for the Beef.  The scoring in the opening quarter ended on a 20 yard field goal by Trevino to draw the Blizzard within five.


On the first play of the second quarter Blizzard defensive back Mike Turner picked off a McNear pass in the end zone, leading directly to the second Porterie to Tardy TD connection of 30+ yards on the night and the first Green Bay lead at 16-14.  Tardy finished with 4 catches for 68 yards and the two scores.  Later in the quarter, Porterie had a pass intercepted in the end zone by Diezeas Calbert, but on the ensuing Omaha possession B.J. Hill returned the favor with his fifth pick of the season.  Green Bay capitalized on the turnover again as Porterie snuck across the goal line himself from one yard out to grab a 23-14 lead. 

 McNear hit Banks again for a short touchdown pass, but the Blizzard struck last in the half as Trevino drilled a 47 yard field goal with time running out to take a 26-20 lead to the break.

The third quarter was dominated by both defenses with the only scoring coming on a McNear touchdown run of five yards.

The final quarter proved much more kind to the offenses.  Porterie found popular target Scott Burnoski on a short two yard score to regain a 33-27 advantage.  Omaha kicker Paul Stoltz then traded field goals with Trevino before James McNear scored again on the ground from 11 yards out to give Omaha a slim 37-36 lead with 41 seconds to go. Stoltz finished 1 of 3 on field goals for the game.  A kick return to midfield by Tardy set the stage for the aforementioned heroics of Pray and McClinton as the Blizzard secured win number three on the season.

Linebacker Trevor Glomski led the defense with seven tackles and filled in admirably for Greg Jackson who did not play in the game.

Green Bay has another bye week before traveling to Cedar Rapids on April 7th to take on the Titans in a rematch of their 64-12 victory in the home opener two weeks ago.
