RE: new AmericanRx blog
BTW, here's what FBSchedules.com had to say about the 3 big games this weekend:

Saturday, Sept. 6

12:00PM ET, ABC/ESPN2: No. 4 OKLAHOMA at TULSA: The Sooners are 7-0 against Tulsa since 2001, the Golden Hurricanes haven’t beaten Oklahoma since 1996 and haven’t won in Tulsa since 1942. Tulsa’s aerial attack—which racked up 438 passing yards on Tulane last week—will be a good early test for the Sooners’ secondary, which will be tasked with squaring off with the rest of the high-flying Big 12. Keep an eye on Golden Hurricane receiver Keevan Lucas, who led the nation in Week 1 with 233 yards and three touchdowns on 13 catches. On the other side of the ball, look for Oklahoma’s rushing attack to have fun against a Tulsa defense which gave up 254 ground yards (No. 103 in the FBS) to Tulane last week.

7:00PM ET, ESPNU: EAST CAROLINA at No. 21 SOUTH CAROLINA: After getting throttled by Texas A&M at home last week, South Carolina’s defense cannot afford another disastrous game against East Carolina’s aerial attack in Week 2. The Pirates return quarterback Shane Carden, his top two targets and most of the starting offensive line to the No. 11-ranked pass offense from a year ago. The Gamecocks gave up 511 yards through the air to the Aggies in Week 1, the most in the Steve Spurrier era. ECU averaged 328 passing yards per game last season and threw for 374 vs. FCS North Carolina Central last week. It’s hard to believe that South Carolina will do anything but make ECU pay for what happened against the Aggies last week, but the secondary needs to be ready.

10:00PM ET, PAC-12 NETWORK: MEMPHIS at No. 11 UCLA: One of two late West Coast games, if you have access to the Pac-12 network, watch UCLA’s offense try and rebound after it sputtered in Week 1. The Bruins scored only one offensive touchdown in their 28-20 close call at Virginia last week, a far cry from the 37-points per game they averaged last season. Memphis, on the other hand, returns six of its defensive front seven from the No. 12 ranked rushing defense in 2013. The Tigers do have a weakness though, their No. 99 ranked pass defense from 2013, which may reignite Brett Hundley’s Heisman campaign. Memphis beat FCS Austin Peay 63-0 in Week 1, the first opening win for the Tigers since upsetting Ole Miss in 2004 and the most points scored in a single game since 1969 when they hung up 69 points on Louisville. These two teams have never met. UCLA hasn’t lost returning home off a road trip since 2010. Memphis has only played football in California twice in history—at USC in 1991 and vs. San Jose State in the 1971 Pasadena Bowl—and is a perfect 2-0.

Thanks Hokie Mark! Good Stuff! If the pirates O Line can protect Carden, I think for ECU at USC it will come down, just as you said, to protecting the ball.

Without Clowney, the Gamecock's pass rush is a lot less fearsome!
