Robert Marve Out for the Season

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue junior quarterback Robert Marve will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first quarter of Purdue’s 31-20 loss to Toledo on Sept. 25. The diagnosis was confirmed by Purdue’s team orthopedist on Thursday.

“Robert Marve is a big part of our football family, he has worked extremely hard to be the great player that he is and our heart goes out to him,” head coach Danny Hope said. “Boilermaker Nation will rally behind him with all of its support through this tough time. I know he will continue to be an inspiration to his teammates and fans.”

Scout’s Notebook: Kentucky @ Florida

SCOUT’S NOTEBOOK: KENTUCKY@FLORIDA

Concerns about a Florida offense that’s been slow off the trigger in the first quarter of games were quelled in Week 4, as the Gators jumped out to 14-0 lead over Kentucky within the first 12 minutes of the contest and never looked back.

Urban Meyer’s crew was markedly deeper and far more athletic than the Wildcats, who didn’t belong on the same field with their opponents in a 48-14 drubbing.

Burton burns ‘Cats six times

Freshman sensation Trey Burton was an unstoppable force for the Gators in the red zone area delivering six scores, five of which came on runs from the Wildcat formation.

On his first foray into the end zone, Burton made a good read and followed the lead of center Maurice Pouncey on an 11-yard quarterback counter. Toward the end of the first quarter, the Gators get Burton open by running a double slant

Scout’s Notebook: TCU @ SMU

Scout’s Notebook: TCU SMU 9/25/10

Written By: Kenny Franek

TCU and SMU battled for the Iron Skillet, and the battle was close…for a little more than a half. After that it was all Horned Frogs. TCU managed to overcome two interceptions by Andy Dalton to win a game that was much closer than the score indicated. The lone bright spot for SMU was sophomore running back Zach Line, who managed to rush for 139 yards on just 17 carries against the stingy Horned Frogs defense. Here are the highlights and lowlights by players from both teams.

Andy Dalton struggled early with his accuracy, missing his receiver badly on a deep out route on TCU’s second series. On their third series he threw behind his receiver and, although he made the catch, it would have been an easy touchdown had the pass been

Scout’s Notebook: Stanford @ Notre Dame

Scout’s Notebook: Stanford Notre Dame 09/25/10

Written By: Tyler Oberly

Stanford came into South Bend with the nation’s top-ranked run defense and showed why, as they held the Irish to only 44 rushing yards on the day. The bright point statistically for Notre Dame came through quarterback Dayne Crist, who was able to throw for over 300 yards, connecting to star wide out Michael Floyd eight times for 110 yards.

Crist looked uncomfortable in the pocket all game against the Cardinal defense, as he was sacked three times and threw one interception for a touchdown. Two sacks came from linebacker Shayne Skov, who also forced a fumble and racked up eight tackles. OLB Chase Thomas introduced himself to Crist as well, hitting him three times and registering seven tackles. Senior two-way player Owen Marecic put the game away when he intercepted Crist and
