    Its been a while since a cpu defense has given me this many fits. We pick things up in the fourth, where after a Jackson FG it was 10-9 Auburn still. Auburn then went up by 8 after QB Browne dropped a pass right over SS Dixons outstretched hand. The Badgers then went 3 n out, and punted with 3:46 left. But the Tigers would fumble the ball two plays later, and the Badgers got the TD and 2 points that they needed to tie it up. Wisconsin was able to get the ball back before the end, but Herron threw an INT as he was hit by a defender. Auburn put up 3, taking a late lead. But the ensuing kickoff went out of bounds, and Herron threw 4 straight completions and Jackson hit the game tying FG with zeros on the clock. In OT, it only took Wisconsin 3 plays to score, and the Tigers 4 plays to end the game.

    #3 Wisconsin 27 - #12 Auburn 20

    #13 Alabama Survives Late Rally by Upset-Minded Illinois
    Illini: 7 0 7 7 21
    Alabama: 7 14 0 14 35

    The game could not have started better for the Illini. Illinois would kick off to open up the game, and force a fumble on the return. Wilson would scoop up the fumble and take it 22 yards to the endzone, giving the orange and blue an early 7-0 lead. Alabama would hold on to the next kickoff, and take to work. Bama would be nearly unstoppable the remainder of the half, while Illinois would get across the 50 and immediately stall. This lead to 21 straight for the tide, and a 21-7 halftime lead.

    After half, it became clear that the Illini defense had come out with more intensity. The offense stalled again once reaching the 50, but the defense would hold Bama to a three and out and give Illinois great field position to start their second drive of the game. The drive would be fruitful, as Jackson would take handoff off-tackle and cut the Crimson Tide's lead in half. After another Bama stop, Illinois went back to work. Wilson would be on the receiving end this time, catching a pass from Battle and going in for the game tying score with 6:02 remaining.

    It was at this point that Alabama got the message. All of a sudden the possibility of starting 0-2 with a bad loss at Illinois was staring them in the face. But they would not be denied for a 3rd drive in a row. It only took 6 plays, but Alabama ran the ball down the throat of the Illini defense and regained the lead 28-21 with 4 minutes to go.

    Illinois Coach Cheez has been in this position quite often in his 6 years at the helm of Illinois. He rallied the troops, and the offense would respond by driving on the Alabama defense. The rushing attack that had been inconsistent throughout the first two and a half quarters was now firing on all cylinders. With 1 minute left, Justice took a carry inside the Alabama 20. Two plays later, they were at the 8 yard line with 30 seconds remaining.

    The game could not have ended any worse for the Illini. Battle dropped back to pass, and fired a shot over the middle. He did not see the MLB in a zone, and the backer deflected the pass to himself making the interception and effectively sealing the game. Bama would add one more touchdown after this, but the game was effectively over following the pick.

    Next up for the 0-2 Illini - they are heading back to Oregon. This time, the unranked Beavers are on deck. The last time these two teams met, Illinois overcame a 24 point, 3rd quarter deficit to upset the Oregon State in overtime in Corvallis.

    Tight game as the Ducks pull ahead late to secure the win. The vaunted Triplehorn offense and it's star QB Brian Holmen rolled into Eugene looking to continue last seasons success. However, the quack attack had other plans. Holmen was the focus of the duck defense and they held the star in check. Holmen was shut down on the ground, which was priority number 1 entering the game. On offense, the Ducks were determined to control the game on the ground, essentially taking the Longhorns game to them. The Ducks succeeded, controlling the ball for over 19 minutes behind 37 rushing attempts and over 140 yards. Conversely, Texas was held to under 50 yards.

    Good game wgw.

    #1Ohio State 45 @ #23Texas A&M 17

    The Buckeyes simply wore down Texas A&M in this one. The Aggies started so strong, jumping out to a 7-0 lead on the very first drive of the game, as qb Howell eluded a blitzing LB, stepped up, and lofted it to his tight end at the pylon some 38 yards away. But OSU jumped right back down the field for a score from a yard out from Carlson. After a promising Aggie drive fluttered and fizzled out, they punted back to the Buckeyes. But OSU didn't have it for long, as qb Kirk was hit by a blitzing cb and the ball floated right into the hands of S Grant Hall, who was able to return it for the go ahead score and get College Station all fired up to end the first.

    But teams are ranked #1 for a reason. And this Buckeye squad realized that they were in a fight and took the back against the wall approach. It was evident that Coach Boda was mad and lit into his team in between qtrs. Then the O-line responded, along with Carlson and Slaughter, the talented rb duo, relentlessly pounding the Aggies front 7. While the pair didn't achieve a typical day for them (83 and 87 yds respectively), they just kept coming, methodically moving the ball in conjunction with Kirks passes to roll into the end zone and tie the game.

    Then the defense got to work, quickly giving the ball back to the offense for a go ahead score. And finally the backbreaker for A&M came when (still in the 2nd), Howell tried to force a pass and it got picked off and returned for 6. That made it 28-14 and the Bucks would score again after a fumble to end the half 35-14. From there it was pretty academic, as the Bucks churned out first downs with a cloud of dust running approach, though the Aggies put up a fight and played good football in the 2nd half.

    Oregon State started out slowly in the first half settling for two Sean Mosby field goals while ASU scored on a 34 yard pick six with less than a minute to go in the first half to take a 1 point lead at half time. In the second half it was all Beavers as the scored on two big passing plays, the first a 67 yard TD Pass to Lorenzo Beck, then a 63 yard TD pass to Antwan Cook. The Beavers eventually added a third TD pass of the game from Eric Stephens to Lance Dotson giving the Beavers a comfortable 28-14 win.
