tv Fox 5 News at Ten FOX November 3, 2012 10:30pm-11:30pm EDT
400-yard day for matt barkley. fourth time in his career. third and five. how about that. tossing to the sidelines. agholor drops it. first mistake of the game for this young man. he has a first down as well. so, that brings up fourth down and five. >> charles: he picked a heck of a time to show he was a freshman because we haven't seen it all game long, have we? >> gus: not at all. usc has to go for it. time not on their side. marqise lee in the backfield. barkley. incomplete. and usc turns it over on downs.
>> charles: and nick allioti, the d-coordinator said, forget playing coverage. watch the pressure. right? watch everybody coming to him. and now what? they covered everyone else. and even the nose tackle, taylor hart, drops into zone coverage, and i think that fooled them a little bit. normally he would rush. he drops and took awaif the middle zone. alonso, really nice job shadowing woods. look at the coverage there. agholor can't get open. well done by the oregon defense. >> gus: oregon now at the sc 20 yard line. and the ducks will not be in a hurry. lamar dawson with the tackle. let's take a look at the road ahead, chasing the bcs title game. >> charles: if you're alabama and if you handle lsu and the last we saw they were up 14-3,
texas a&m's next for them. >> gus: we'll come back to that in just a moment. oregon messing up our broadcast, get to the line of scrimmage so quickly. >> charles: and do you know something, if chip kelly knew it had happened, he would love it, wouldn't he? >> gus: yes, he would. >> charles: faster, faster. >> gus: barner. first down. fifth of the day. but a flag on the play. >> charles: coming back. be a hold against oregon. >> referee: holding, offense, number 85. ten-yard penalty. still second down. >> gus: it's farrell brown. >> charles: look, texas a&m for alabama will not be easy, folks, did you see johnny football at quarterback? they're playing better and better, at tcu, at baylor, texas for kansas state. notre dame we thought they would have walk-overs, those teams
will rise up and fight, bc and wake forest before they finish here at usc and oregon next week at cal who lost a tough one friday night against washington, and a huge one with stanford and, of course, the civil war at oregon state. a very tough schedule for oregon down the stretch. >> gus: barner running. hayes pullard with the tackle. a huge day for kenjon barner. prior to that, 37 carries, 295 yards. 4 touchdowns. chip kelly and his oregon team, he has now rushed for 300 yards, officially 38 carries, 300
yards, averaging 8 yards per carry, breaking lamichael james' record most rushing yards in a game at the university of oregon. >> charles: you don't want to take a loss here for the record purpose, right? you don't want to drop down below 300. >> gus: they hand it to him. he won't take a loss at all! kenjon barner, again, that's number five! kenjon barner with 322 yards rushing. 5 touchdowns. >> charles: they wear you down physically, but they also wear you down mentally. because they keep you thinking, and at an extremely fast rate all game long. and after a while, it's hard for those synapses to keep coming
together and figuring out what to do, and he waltzes into the end zone. >> gus: great kick-out block on that touchdown run by kyle long. i'm sure that's going to make one man in particular in the building very happy. >> charles: talking about steve greatwood, the offensive line coach? >> gus: ha ha ha. watch kyle long. 74 was at the top of your screen. >> charles: hroniss grasu, 55, also with a nice block. but they always talk about big runs, gus. the first seven yards belong to the offensive line and the running back. anything beyond that you credit the guys out wide, wide receivers, flat guys, to escort you that much farther down the field. i think everyone on oregon did a nice job getting the blocks. >> gus: kenjon barner, record-setting day.
pac-12 record with 357 yards. reuben mays with 357. >> charles: washington state. >> gus: versus oregon in '84. >> charles: i remember that year well. we played against reuben mays, my tennessee team played against reuben mays and that washington state team. mark griffin was quarterbacking. they came to knoxville and we outlasted them that night. >> gus: so, sc will get the ball at the 35. with 1:52 to go. down 62-45. matt barkley, 29 of 48, 412 yards passing, 4 touchdowns, 2
interceptions. and matt barkley complete to marqise lee as kiko alonso flinfling s him to the turf. barkley. hit and caught, agholor. and they give him the catch at the 36. >> charles: see the good concentration in that. there's the tip. and how about agholor seeing it and catching it for a first down.
>> gus: a 21-yard gain. and a time-out called by the ducks. >> referee: time-out, oregon. time-out number thout. >> gus: so, where do the trojans go from here is the big question as you take a look at their upcoming schedule. >> charles: in a sense they cede control of the pac-12 south with this loss. but they can wrench it back by winning against arizona state and at ucla. i think ucla if they win tonight goes into the driver's seat, they're playing arizona this evening. but arizona -- excuse me, usc/ucla head to head could end up deciding this thing, which would almost be, what is that a "back to the future" remember the good old days when we would turn on the game that decided
the pac-8 title -- >> gus: that's right. >> charles: -- before the pac-10. if that happens conceivably, they could get a rematch with the same oregon team. >> gus: as we take a look at the pac-12 south standings. >> charles: if usc takes the loss and goes to 6-3 and ucla finds a way to win tonight against arizona and goes to 7-2, they take control. but, remember, head to head's your first tiebreaker, so if usc can win out and beat ucla head to head down the stretch, if ucla is still that team, they still have title hopes on the usc campus. still got arizona state to play also.
>> gus: so, first down for the trojans at the oregon 37. barkley. in trouble! and matt barkley going down. taylor hart getting into the backfield, and that is a sack for hart. >> charles: i mean, you talk about a jailbreak to the quarterback. taylor hart was there almost about the time barkley got the ball. he tried to unload it and get rid of it, but he caught him in the grasp and down before he unloaded the pass. >> gus: first tag of the night for oregon. agholor. juking. can't get out-of-bounds.
and the clock continues to run with 40 seconds remaining in this one. oregon got off to the big start up 21-3. usc rallied. eventually cut this game to a three-point football game in the second half. but the big story the trojans just with no answer for chip kelly and the oregon offense. kenjon barner, 300 yards rushing. and their young quarterback in eugene is a cool customer. >> charles: i think what usc was counting on, can we put the pressure on them and could the young quarterback handle it. well, remember, as you noted, it was 34-31, third quarter, and oregon kept answering on offense, and that was led by the quarterback, mariota, and then finally the defense got a couple of stops which helped extend the win to where we are now.
>> gus: fourth down and three and this ball is caught by robert woods. woods running, hurtling, woods trying to get to the end zone and out-of-bounds at about the 2. robert woods with a 28-yard gain. 5 seconds to go. >> charles: and i like the fact that the home crowd recognized the effort despite the fact that it's not going to change the final result. that robert woods continued to fight and scratch and claw to try and make this thing change even though he knows the final score will not be reflective of it. >> gus: first down and goal. five seconds to go. in the end zone. marqise lee with the touchdown. with a second remaining. 62-51.
barkley throwing his fifth touchdown pass, 483 yards passing on 35 of 54. 2 interceptions. >> charles: did you see that look on chip kelly's face? he's going to enjoy the win, but he's got plenty to work with on his team. that's what you kind of want as a head coach. win the game, but still plenty to say to your team. >> gus: 1,361 yards of total offense by these two teams. 16 touchdowns. two-point conversion. marqise lee the intended receiver, incomplete. olomu there defensively.
while we wait for the final kickoff, let's take a look at the bcs top ten. >> charles: alabama leading 14-10 at lsu, kansas state up by 18 against oklahoma state at home. notre dame, start your hearts again, irish fans, you got away today. oregon winning big now. and then you see georgia. i thought they might get tested today by ole miss coming off an emotional game against florida. they handled that. florida an ugly game against missouri, but they won. a couple teams idle in south carolina and florida state and louisville, do you know they gave up the opening kickoff touchdown to temple? temple ran it back, 7-0 and charlie strong's team led by their quarterback, blasted temple, and the end result 45-17. now, that's a good story for you, folks, louisville and
charlie strong still undefeated leading the big east. >> gus: so, with one tick remaining in this game, andre heidari will send it away. and heidari sends it into the end zone for a touchback. >> charles: you know, that's a classy move right there. do you know why? the onside kick is one of the more physically punishing plays in football, and the result's not going to change even if you get it because the clock's going to run out. and i think for lane kiffin to recognize that, not put any players in a punishing spot again, i got to tip my cap to him for that one. i think it's a class move from keeping the kids from having another hit, another contact.
>> gus: well, disappointing evening for usc. still a lot of football to play. as oregon takes a knee. chip kelly now 3-1 against sc, his team remains undefeated. 9-0, 6-0 in the conference. as oregon wins it 62-51 on the road. 62-51, the final. now let's go to studio "a" where erin andrews is standing by to lead the postgame report. thanks so much coming up on the "at&t postgame show" number bun alabama on the road in death valley taking on lsu. kansas state is leading oklahoma state in their battle for control for the big 12, and notre dame squeaked out a triple overtime victory in south bend.

look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message.
tomorrow on fox nfl sunday some games to look out for include the cardinals in lambeau taking on the packers. the panthers up against the redskins, bears at the titans and the vikings taking on the seahawks. coverage begins with the "built ford tough fox nfl sunday pregame show" at noon eastern, 9:00 a.m. pacific. welcome to the "at&t postgame show." it has a high-scoring affair indeed at the coliseum where the ducks defeated the trojans 62-51. oregon's kenjon barner takes this one to the end zone and sets the single-game touchdown record against usc with five touchdowns. yes, let me say that again. kenjon barner with five touchdowns. erin andrews here with eddie george, joey harrington, let me say it again. now, what i'll say is what we were asking going into this second half. can the oregon ducks play an entire game? because we haven't seen them do that all season long.
they haven't been tested. what did they have, over 730 yards of total offense? >> yeah. when oregon gets a chance to play a full game, you get numbers like kenjon barner today, 324 yards. 5 touchdowns on the ground. and not only did he just impress the entire country tonight, but he set the stage for a heisman run with big games coming up against stanford and oregon state to finish the season. it's what you do at the end of the year that catch's people's attention. and by the way, freshman marcus mariota 306 and 4 touchdowns through the air with 91 on the ground, a total game from the oregon offense tonight. >> yeah, kenjon barner, the most impressive thing to me about the whole game tonight was he still looked fresh after he ran for 324 yards. he could have ran for more, you know, that was so impressive to see that performance on the other side, marqise lee, you know, almost 400 yards of total offense. the last two weeks he's been amazing even in a loss he looks like the best player in the country.
i mean, he's so hard to tackle, so slippery, despite the loss, i think he's still a fantastic bona fide heisman trophy candidate. >> yeah. >> you talked about the freshman quarterback, what does chip kelly call him, the high-flying hawaiian. >> the high-flying hawaiian. >> our julie alexandria caught up with marcus mariota. >> congratulations on the win, 300 yards, 4 touchdowns, what did the win do for your confidence? >> it means not a lot only for myself but the whole team, come back tomorrow and look at some film and come back monday. >> they tried to put pressure on you, but you stayed cool as a cucumber in the pocket. how did you stay so poised and unflappable? >> the guys around me, i feel comfortable with the guys around me and i rely on them and they rely on me and it's a good team effort. >> looking ahead to next week, you go up against cal on the road. what do you take from the game and apply it to next week? >> go back and look at the film and we're just going to get
better, you know? as long as, you know, we can learn from some things and, you know, we'll be better next week. >> congratulations. thank you. >> thank you. >> the oregon ducks certainly in the meat of their schedule right now. looking at the pac-12 standings, oregon sits atop the north at a perfect 6-0 in the conference and with usc's loss, if the winner of tonight's areizona/uca game wins out they'll be the pac-12 champions. let's check in on the s.e.c., the big one happening in baton rouge. there's nick saban in his old stomping grounds! >> you mean there's another game going on tonight? nick saban's number one ranked crimson tide in baton rouge and lacey with the seven-yard touchdown run putting alabama on top early in the second quarter 7-3. but cyrus jones muffs the punt. and it's recovered for lsu, and tigers bomb the alabama 32. they're in striking distance. but lsu would stall out and line up for a 47-yard field goal and it's a fake. a pass to drew olman and man.
and look at that one. >> yeah. >> and later on a.j. mccareen on a nine-yard touchdown run puts alabama up 14-3. but in the third quart here, jeremy hill for lsu would take it in from one yard out to cut the lead 14-10 alabama on top right now. >> how about the big 12, oklahoma state/kansas state. let's check in on another heisman front-runner, >> number two on the kickoff, makes a couple of defenders miss and breaks away for an 80-yard touchdown. and within a touchdown of kansas state. the second quarter, lofts that, and his pass is picked off by allen chatman who returns it for the big six, kansas up big in this one, 41-20. >> what a thriller in south bend. pitt/notre dame, joey. >> the second overtime, this is woods going over the top.
but, no, he loses the football. take another look, it's reviewed and upheld and fumbled by notre dame and recovered by pitt in the end zone which sets up a game winner, kevin harper taking a state out of florida state. wide right. and on we go to a third overtime. tied at 23-23. in the third overtime following a pitt field goal, everett golson taking it in from one yard out. notre dame keeps the title hopes alive, 29-26 with three overtimes. >> unbelievable day football. >> who is ranked? >> we didn't even play. don't forget to logon to foxsports.com/at&t for the at&t player post watched by us. on the "fox pregame show" r.g. iii is tough to stop, but jimmy johnson will share his
secrets on how to stop the rookie standout. we'll sit down with defensive stars as well and with coach lovie smith for a look inside the best "d." and that's all tomorrow at noon eastern. it was another wild fox college saturday doubleheader that ended in prime time. as oregon came down to the l.a. coliseum and showed usc why the ducks are sitting on top of the pac-12. ducks senior kenjon barner a redshirt freshman, marcus mariota had a record-setting day against the trojans. oregon keeps their national title hopes alive with this 62-51 win over usc. wow. that does it for us. for eddie george, joey harrington, i'm erin andrews. good night, everybody.
own. three days before the election and president obama is hitting the battleground states. his final appearance in virginia with the dave matthews band. i'm laura evans. >> i'm maureen umeh. president obama had a busy travel day today. >> and the president is speaking now at the jiffy lube live amphitheater. let's listen in. >> to our future, you have to ask yourself who do you trust? you may not agree with every decision i have made, michelle doesn't agree with every decision i have made. there might be times when you're frustrated at the pace of change, i'm frustrated sometimes with the pace of change. you know i mean what i say, and
i say what i mean. you know whether i -- what i believe. you know where i stand. when i said we would end the war in iraq, we ended it. when i said we would pass healthcare reform, we passed it. when i said we would repeel don't ask, don't tell, we repeeled it. >> yeah. >> you know i tell the truth. and most importantly, you know i will fight for you and your families every single day as hard as i know how. so, so, let me tell you. i know what real change looks like because i fought for it. i have the scars to prove it, and you have, too. after all we have been through together, we can't give up on it now. we have to keep pushing forward. that is why i'm running for a second term. that is why i need your vote! [ cheering and applause .
>> four more years! four more years! four more years! four more years! >> now virginia, let me describe very briefly. i know folks are cold. but let me describe, what am i talking about when i am talking about four? what do i mean by really change? change is a country where every american has a shot at a great education. now government alone, government alone can't do that. parents, you have a parent. students, you have to study, but don't tell me that hiring more teachers won't help our economy grow. don't tell me that students who can't afford college should just borrow money from their parents. that wasn't an option for me, it was not an option for bill clinton. i'll bet it's not an option for a lot of you. that is why i want to cut the growth of tuition in half over
the next 10 years. that's why i want to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers so that we don't fall behind the rest of the world. that is why i want to train 2 million americans in our -- at our community colleges to get the skills businesses are hiring for right now. that is real change. that is what we're fighting for in this election. that is what is at stake. i want us to live up to this country's legacy of innovation. you know, i am proud. i have been on america's workers and the american auto industry. >> and you're listening to president obama at a campaign rally in virginia, the jiffy lube live angie theatre and this is -- live ampitheatre and stomping with heavy hitters in the democratic area tonight r. >> including president bill clinton. audrey barns has been out there this evening. he's had support from dave matthews and katy perry, to name a few celebrities out is there their?
>> reporter: yeah, president obama has been on a four-state odyssey today. started at the white house and he was in milwaukee and iowa, and now he's here in bristol, virginia, at jiffy lube live. it's been alive all evening. dave matthews from virginia got the crowd warmed up and president bill clinton told them several reasons why he thinks barack obama deserves four more years. >> he knows that an economy that builds the middle class and gives poor people an honorable way to work their way into it is a lot better than four more years of trickle down. we have been there. we've done that. and he knows that practical cooperation is better than all of this constant ideological conflict and we saw it, didn't we? we saw it in a way the president got off of the campaign trail and responded to
sandy. >> yeah! >> reporter: and president obama is still speaking to the crowd here. i have to tell you jiffy lube live is packed and every single person in here is on their feet listening to him. they very excited and enthused about his campaign. president clinton said that he's more excited about this one than he was four years ago. so, the crowd will be here as long as the president continues to talk, and it looks like he's getting started. back to you in the studio. >> audrey barnes tonight. thank you. republican candidate mitt romney was also pushing for swing state votes in dubuque, iowa, today. part of his tour of all eight swing states leading up to election day. the pace of his campaign is quicker than the last few days and than it has been in months. romney's message carries everything from generic statements to policy pushes. >> you know what he's going to do in energy, he's going to continue his war coal and gas
and my advantage, let's take advantage of our natural resources, they're clean and abundant, we bring jobs back in the country and stop sending hundreds of bottoms of dollars to other nations. >> crowds greeting romney today. when he wraps up in iowa, he heads to colorado. the clock sticks down to our tuesday, the energy is up. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin joining us now. good to see you, mark. >> good to be back. >> let's talk about the obama rally in virginia with bill clinton. you have the democrats' top gun stumping in a hotly contested battleground state. what do you think of this? >> obviously, they view bill clinton as an enormous asset. he lost virginia twice when he ran n. '96, he came close. i remember the president four years ago ended his campaign monday night in a large crowd in northern virginia. sixty%, they need 60% to win the commonwealth of virginia and the 13 electoral votes.
among the nine battleground states, maureen, virginia is the tightest in the polls and they feel that bill clinton is a remembrance or a reminder when times were better, at least economically. >> what comes back to the battleground states and electoral college which, candidate has the advantage at this point? >> right now, it seems the polls -- i mean four years ago, the president won by seven percentage points and won with 365 electoral votes. nobody thinks it's going to be like. that he's defending states he won, he doesn't need to win by that much and seems to be ahead in ohio in the polls, in iowa and wisconsin. he seems to be trailing in florida, he seems to be ahead in nevada and colorado as a tossup. if you read nate silver and the new york times, who i think is the best in compiling all of the polls, right now, the
president is leading and has enough. >> okay, election day on tuesday. we're expecting a winner that night. you're saying not so fast. why? >> i don't see how you, if it's as close as everyone said, how there will be declared a winner because of one thing, and i brought it up a few days ago and it bears repeating. there will be hundreds of thousands, hundreds of thousands, let me repeat that, of provisional votes cast in ohio. that is votes that can not be counted because of absentee ballots and other permutations of the election day in ohio and they can't be counted for 10 days. if you have a tight race and 18 electoral votes make the difference. >> right. >> we won't know the results in ohio on election day. >> early voting so far, huge turnouts all over. does it bode better for one or another? >> democrats feel that early voting helps them and that republicans are more reliable
voting on election day and that early voting with is a boone and asset and i see why romney is going to new hampshire, four electoral votes, one more than the district of columbia. al gore would have won the election in 2000 and won't have needed florida if he had won the four electoral votes in new hampshire. >> the last few days, what will you be looking for from-from- each candidate? anything specific or that hard push to the end? >> and that is up to them. the obama campaign feel they have organized for america, the parallel campaign organization the last four years and they feel they have a better ground game. >> we'll have to watch and see. fox 5 political analyst mark
