The fightin' Cards picked up yet another impressive victory against conference opponent Kent State Saturday.The game was clearly BSU's for the taking from the opening kickoff.It was evident that this was a much needed morale booster for a team that had one of it's best players in their hearts and minds.You could feel the Love everywhere,and I think its correct to say,This win was for Dante.

A win would have only been fitting for a team who just one week prior,lost one of it's biggest weapons and seniors,Dante Love.From prior to the game even begun,The players adorned Dante Love shirts,stating without words that this win was for him,from their hearts.Running out of the tunnel,you could feel the emotion and you could tell that this was going to be a good day for us Cardinal fans.

In Dante's place, Briggs Orsbon, had one of the best performance's I've seen from a TRUE freshmen in a very long time.He piled up 10 catches, for an impressive 112 yards."I've only been playing with him for three or four months," Orsbon said. "When he went down, it was like losing one of my best friends. We're going to be representing 86 every week." When this weeks polls came out,It was no surprise to see that the play thus far has been recognized and the team was voted the 29th best in the nation.

One has got to start wondering about that U word that everyone would love to say at the end of the year but nobody is dare quoted as saying mid-season.Yes fans,the Cardinals are for real.Enjoy these highlights and post-game press conference from yet another BSU victory Saturday..
