    James 4 TDs Spark Illini Win
    Illini: 0 21 7 14 42
    Penn State: 14 7 0 7 28

    The game could not have started out any worse for Illinois. Penn State took the opening kickoff and marched down the field effortlessly through the air. What made this especially scary was that Penn State came in with one of the leading rushing attacks in the country, and were playing with their third string QB. Regardless, after a 5 yard pass from Bolden to Newberry, Penn State was on the board first with a 7-0 lead.

    On Illinois' second play of the game, Jon Justice would put the ball on the turf, and the fumble was returned 34 yards to give PSU a 14-0 lead. Illinois was now back in a familiar position: down two scores early, fighting turnover woes, and against a good Penn State team.

    The second quarter would emit some light for Illinois, when Renaldo James took in his first touchdown carries from one yard out. On the first play after the touchdown, Penn State's heralded HB Larkin showed his skills. Larkin broke three tackles on the inside, then broke free for 73 yards and a 21-7 PSU lead.

    Illinois had had enough with the nonsense. In particular, Tate Forcier was caught screaming that he needed some emotion from his teammates. Apparently, he struck a chord. He would hit two deep passes on the next two Illini drives (Millines - 49, Lankford - 65) that would go for scores and tie the game at 21 going into the break.

    The second half was completely dominated by the Illini. Illinois would receive the kick and run a 14 play drive that spanned almost half of the 3rd quarter, and watch Renaldo James punch it in from 2 yards out giving Illinois their first lead of the game. That lead would carry over to the fourth, when with 5:37 remaining James would find the endzone for a 3rd time. His score from 9 yards out gave the Illini a 35-21 lead, and that lead would hold for the remainder of the game.

    A large part of the turnaround in the second half was caused by the pressure from the front four and the others who came in on the rush. Bolden was sacked a remarkable 10 times in this game, and they came from all angles. Leading the charge for the Illini was Buchanan, who tallied 5 sacks on his own.

    The one bit of bad news out of Champaign today regards HB Jon Justice. During the long drive starting off the third quarter, Justice came off the field holding his shoulder. The injury appears to be a strained shoulder, and it will keep the halfack out for at least 4 weeks.

    Illinois' next test will not be an easy one. Next week, the #2 Badgers come in to the House of Paign, they are looking as tough as ever. Coach Cheez has expressed confidence that his team has the ability to pull the upset, but it will certainly be a tough task.

    Long as I read it correctly on live, the Bruins have taken a step up and the Beavers took a step back in the chase for the Roses.

    Oregon State - 18
    UCLA - 34

    The Bruins put to bed any National Championship talk the Beavers had going, taking down the #5 ranked team in Pasadena. The game started well for the Bruins, as they returned a punt for the 1st score of the game. OSU would drive the field and tie the game at 7 early in the 2nd quarter. However, UCLA would put 14 unanswered points, including an 81 yard TD run by Dixon. OSU was able to add a FG before the end of the half, making the score 21-10.

    UCLA got the 2nd half kick-off and proceeded to give up a pick a 6 on a play action screen pass (its on the wire, terrible play on my part!). The Beavers would convert the 2pt conversion, making it a FG game at 21-18. From that point on, it was all Bruins. They outscored the Beavers 13-0 in the 4th quarter to seal the deal and keep their Pac10 record unblemished. UCLA won the ever so important turnover battle, 3-1.

    UCLA still has a rough road ahead of them with games at Washington, Arizona, at Oregon and home to USC to end the season (alll ranked teams by the way)

    Good game wazzu...see you next year in Corvallis!

    I threw too many interceptions, the one that probably cause me to lose sleep at night is the one in the second quarter where I was driving to either tie the game, or take the lead. Mannion, Marable, and Houston will all be back next year ready to go.

    Stillwaters Run Shallow against Mighty Texas

    Whaley left the game in the first quarter, and texas took a 24-3 lead into half time. Then the longhorn defense took over forcing 5 turnovers in the 3rd quarter ( 2 by the starters 3 by the backups ) and scored 2 defensive touchdowns in route to a 38 point third quarter by Texas. 3rd string HB Traylon Snead lead the team in rushing with just 2 carries: one for a 43 yard TD, the other for a 97 yard TD.

    The Badgers D stepped up for the second straight week, pitching once again another shutout, their 3rd of the year. The Boilermakers were held to 109 total yards on offense, as they were completely shut down in the running game (1 yard, 14 rushes). Wisconsin, on the other hand, was able to sustain long time consuming drives, as they held the ball for 75% of the game. QB Bud went 16-18 for 156 yards and 1 TD, while also getting 20 yards and a rushing score on the ground. The only dull spot was the pass protection, as they gave up two sacks and an INT as Bud was hit on a throw. Next week is a matchup against the Illini, who still have visions of making a Rose Bowl berth by running the table.

    #2 Wisconsin 26 - Purdue 0

    Iowa St 35 @ Texas A&M 42

    What a game Iowa State put together, taking 14-0, 21-7 and 35-28 leads throughout the game, and nearly upsetting an uninspired Aggie squad.

    It started with a quick opening td drive for the cyclones, with a questionable completion call in the back of the endzone after a tipped pass seemingly was caught out of bounds by Iowa State TE Brandon Marcus. Just one play later the Cyclones struck again, this time the defense caused a quick fumble by rb Mister Jones, and returned it into the endzone. After an answer by the Aggies, the Cyclone offense went down the field again for a 21-7 lead late in the first qtr, as rb Shontrelle Johnson broke 2 arm tackles and sprinted 46 yards around the left side from the shotgun.

    The 2nd qtr didn't look good either for the Aggies, who gave the ball back up on a punt and then allowed ISU to drive it down their throats again. But a timely sack saved the drive for the D, and gave it back to the lethargic Aggie offense. On third down, an option play from the Wild-Aggie-Bone let speedster Malcolm Kennedy fly around right end for 64 yards to pull the Aggies back within 7. But ISU was not done and quickly answered with a 76 yard strike from James Capello to Pierce Richardson. After an Aggie punt the Cyclones actually threatened to put the game away, marching to the 13 yd line before a huge hit and 87 yard fumble recovery let TAMU find some momentum.

    The 3rd qtr had Jones score his 2nd of the day to tie it, but just moments later Kyle Banks gave the Cyclones the lead again 35-28. After a bit of a lull that saw the Cyclones threaten for field goals, but never quite get into range, the Aggies felt like they were fortunate to be in the game, and decided to win it. Showers threw to rb Ben Malena for 31 yards on a little flat pattern that saw him spin around a man and then break a tackle and race in. Then on a critical third down inside their own 15 with under 2:30 to go, Showers hit Ted Fields on a shallow crossing pattern. Fields got an incredibly aware block from fellow wr Michael Golden on the safety, and was able to race down the sideline to give the Aggies the lead, and eventually the win after an interception by ISU on the ensuing possession.

    QB Jameille Showers on the field after the game:

    "Wow we missed on a lot of stuff today. I mean we dropped 2 tds, and I overthrew 2 more sure tds. We're very fortunate to get this win, but it's a big one for us. To fall behind and come up with big plays at all the right times. It's big. A Bowl is right there now, and the Big 12 is still open if we can improve. We gotta improve, but this feels really good to come out of this one."
