    The win over then ranked #10 Clemson has Bucky leap frog 2 teams into the #1 ranking. Its only the second week, and the Badgers face an Oregon team that will not look to go down to 0-2 to start the season in a rematch of the Rose Bowl game that technically never happened.

    This game will forever be remebered for "The Drive". The game started off great for newly #1 Wisconsin, as they got an INT on the 3rd play of the game. Oregon was able to hold Wisconsin to a FG deep in their own territory. Wisconsin was then able to extend the lead to 10 on a TD run by White. From there, QB Thomas for the Ducks had the game of his life. He took a 21 yard sweep to the house untouched until the endzone. The Badgers responded with 10 more unanswered points, but left too much time on the clock before half, as Thomas led a TD drive with seconds to spare. 20-14 Badgers at the half. Wisconsin started off beautifully in the 3rd as QB Phillips found WR Houston behind the zone d and went untouched for a 63 yard score. Thomas equally responded with a 41 yard td run untouched off the zone read. The kid was unstoppable. If he had a step on any defender, he was gone. After an Oregon FG which cut the lead to 3 in the 4th, Phillips pass on the first play of the drive was tipped by DT Heimuli, fell off the hands off the hands of TE Anderson and into possession of MLB Alonso. The entire town of Eugene was rocking, as I have never felt the controller shake like it did in this game. The D stood strong and forced a 3 and out, and with a Beard FG, this game was tied. And then, came the drive. Wisconsin took over with 4:32 left in the game, and Phillips, being the senior he is, led his team all the way downfield, completing on 3rd and long and even running the ball for a first on another 3rd down. The oline, doing an amazing job the entire game, paved holes for all 4 of Wisconsin's backs, and kept milking the clock for as long as possible. Coach Dakota was out of timeouts to ice the kicker, and newly acquired K Roberts, straight out of juco in only his 2nd game in division I, kicked the game winning 30 yard FG in one of the toughest stadiums to even hear in. Thomas tried desperately to get his team a score, as on the last play of the game he ran down the field 33 yards, made a move, but had no one to pitch to and was gang tackled to seal the win. "We survived our first test as being the number one team in the nation. We all know how team after team went down in the 2010 season as they were ranked number one. We have to expect teams to come after us with everything they have, especially on the road". QB Thomas amassed 120 yards on the ground with 2 Tds. He was sacked twice, which not only hurt is total yards but put Oregons offense in 3rd and longs. Phillips had 202 yards passing with 2 TDs, and 5 different Badger backs helped gain 145 yards on the ground. Up next is the home opener agains the pesky little Broncos of Boise St.

    #1 Wisconsin 30 - #20 Oregon 27

    Illinois 14 @ Texas A&M 17

    In a game that saw many long drives, it was the Red-Zone that did in the Fighting Illini. Three times they made it down, and only once could they put points on the board, fumbling once inside the 5 and throwing an interception in the endzone. Meanwhile the Aggies also made it three times to the Red-Zone, but they scored all three times, and that was the difference. The other major play was a 3rd and 26 that got converted on a pass to the tight end.

    "That's two straight games with great goal defense for our unit" said Coach Davis. "We really did a nice job there today, it was indeed the difference in the game. And I have to give our offensive coordinator all the credit in the world. Felt like we had them off balance all game. Didn't score the way we wanted, but when we made it into the Red-Zone we finished well. Can't complain about the win here."

    On the other side Coach Cheez was not so impressed with his team. "We aren't very good at stopping anybody. Second straight game of 3rd and longs being converted against our defense. I am not very happy with our effort. Maybe we need to play every 3rd down like 3rd and two. I know what my team's bad at, I wish we could change it, we gotta find a way to change it."

    Texas A&M will head to Fayetteville next week to challenge Arkansas.

    Good game Mexi. Wow, your offensive line is tough. Not just the giant holes your boys opened up, but the great pass protection. I couldn't get any pressure on you. I look forward to a trip to Mad-town next year.

    Oregon State used an impressive defensive performance to earn their first victory of the season. Andrew Seumalo recorded 4 sacks, while Keynan Parker intercepted two ASU passes. The first interception was returned 98 yards, a school record, for a touchdown in the second quarter. The Beavers were able to add one more score in the fourth quarter to ice the game with a Jovan Stevenson 7 yard run.

    Aggies Edge Illini as Time Expires

    Illini: 0 7 7 0 14
    Texas A&M: 0 7 10 3 17

    In a game that could have gone either way, the Aggies were able to overcome a strong day by Illini HB Justin Green to pull out a 17-14 win. Big plays on both sides of the ball aided A&M in this one, forcing two turnovers on Tate Forcier in the redzone in the first half, and converting on 3rd and 25 to keep their eventual game winning drive alive.

    Forcier's (11-16, 141 yards, TD, INT) first mistake came late in the first quarter. With the Illini deep in the Aggie redzone, Forcier called his own number on the option keeper. This allowed Stewart to rip the ball out and end the Illini threat. "It appeared as though the pitchman was covered on the outside, so I wanted to just get a couple yards out of the play and move on" Forcier said after the game. His other mistake was throwing a ball into the back corner of the endzone to a player in double coverage. Coach Cheez on the interception: "That's his first throwing mistake of the year. He'll learn from it and hopefully won't do that again next time".

    The Aggies, on the other hand, had absolutely no problems with their quarterback. Dorman was near perfect, going 14-16 for 206 yards and a touchdown. No pass was bigger than his throw over the middle on 3rd and 25.

    The star of the show for the Illini was once again Justin Green, who carried the ball 24 times for 181 yards and a touchdown. His lone score of the game came on a 56 yard carry up the middle in the early stages of the 2nd quarter, giving the Illini a 7-0 lead. But even when he wasn't scoring, he was keeping the Aggie offense off the field by averaging over 7 yards per carry.

    Next up for the Illini, a tough Oregon State squad coming off of a shutout win over Arizona State in Corvalis. This will be the first home game for the Illini, and one could expect that Memorial Stadium will be alive as Coach Cheez has begun the revitalization of Illini football. As for Texas A&M, a trip to Fayetteville to meet rival Arkansas is coming up next Saturday.

    UCLA wins ugly at home over Nebraska, 26-24. I didnt manage much on offense but hit 4 FG's including a 59 yarder at the end of the half. Nebraska played well, but couldnt manage to get in FG range in the closing minutes of the game. GG aaron!

    Yeah that was a pretty fun game. The game changer was down 3 to start the second half, and I fumble the kickoff return that was recovered and returned for a TD. That guy will not be returning kicks again ever.
