    Illini: 0 21 7 10 38
    Penn State: 7 0 0 6 13

    It only took three plays for Illini fans to recognize that this game would be different than the previous two meetings. The last two years, Penn State has been able to thrash the Illini offense and essentially score at will. However, this year in Happy Valley (#8 Toughest Place to Play via ESPN) the Penn State offense was held to a 3 and out on their first three plays. Illinois was unable to move the ball when taking over possession following the PSU punt, but that didn't change the mindset of Illini fans watching in attendance and at home. "This game would be different."

    Penn State moved the ball down the field effortlessly on their next possession. The drive would culminate with a PSU score on an 8 yard run by smith, giving the Nittany Lions a 7-0 lead with under three minutes to go in the first. After a decent return by Wilson, Illinois was still struggling to move the football. This time, they would get one first down, but would not go much further. The quarter ended with Graves pinning Penn State at their own three yard line. More importantly, the quarter ended with Illinois still in contention.

    On the first play of the second quarter, PSU flared a bubble screen out to the wide out. It appeared as though he never secured the ball as tightly as he should have, and he payed the price. As he was hit, the ball fell to the turf and was scooped up by Illini LB Page. Page was pushed out of bounds at the one - but the counter-punch had been delivered. On the very next play, Jackson took a toss to the right for that remaining one yard, and knotted the score at 7.

    Penn State was not about to be bullied by a 1-2 team when looking for their 500th win in Beaver Stadium. A couple of big plays moved them into Illinois territory. The Illini defense did not buckle, however, and 3 plays later it was fourth and two for the Nittany Lions. Penn State would hand it off to the halfback who would stretch it to the outside. He was met by Page, and held short of the first down marker.

    The teams would trade punts from there. Illinois would regain possession on their end of the exchange at their own 35 with about three minutes remaining. Having been stuffed on the run all afternoon, Illinois turned to junior QB Battle to lead them down the field. A couple of short passes spread out the Nittany Lion Defense, and helped the Illini offense move down the field for the first time in the game. On first and ten from the PSU thirty, Illinois reverted back to a tight formation, but audibled to a pass when the safeties came forward to defend the run. Fernandez would be wide open deep down the field after only a three step drop, and Battle laid it in to him for the 30 yard touchdown which gave Illinois a 14-7 lead.

    Penn State was now shellshocked, and their offense ineptitude showed that. After a 3 and out, Illinois had the ball back near midfield. Two Battle passes and Illinois was knocking on the door again with forty seconds to go. Illinois came out with three wide, and PSU was expecting a run on second and short. Battle floated a pass over the secondary, and Bush made a spectacular one-handed catch to give the Illini a 14 point lead going into the break.

    Illinois started the second half with the ball, and the offense continued to roll over the PSU defense. The rushing attack finally broke through when Jackson took a handoff off-tackle for 68 yards. The short drive would lead to another TD pass by Battle to Bush, giving the Illini a 28-7 lead and effectively ending the game. Both teams would add a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. PSU completed an 11 yard pass while trying to get back into the game, and Jackson sprinted for 28 yards following the onside kick.

    Battle led the Illini passing attack going 12-19 for 206 yards and 3 TD. Jackson rushed for 139 yards on 14 carries, but that number is inflated by the two long carries in the second half. Outside of the 68 and 28 yarders, Jackson gained only 42 yards on his other 12 carries. This will need to improve going into next week. Justice did not do any better, gaining only 38 yards on 13 carries.

    Manning did not have a bad day passing for Penn State, going 20-30 for 231 yards and a TD. But QB's can't do everything themselves, and everyone else on the PSU roster struggled until the late fourth quarter when the hurry-up was implemented.

    After starting the season 0-2, the Illini have now turned it around with 2 straight wins on the road. Next week, they'll try to make it 3 in a row when they travel up to Ann Arbor to take on the Michigan Wolverines. The Illini mauled Michigan last year in Memorial Stadium, so it would be easy to expect Michigan to use that as motivation going into Week 6.

    Iowa's game against Northwestern started slow as this is still a 'getting to know my team' period in week 5 since this was only our 2nd game. RS Freshman QB John Miller played sporadic but the defense, return game and running game was kicking on all cylinders as Iowa wins easily 41-17. True freshmen WR Larry Horton had a great game with big catches and 3 TDs. Unfortunately starting HB Cam Strong is out for the season but HB Mason stepp in and stepped it up.

    Kansas St 7 @ Texas A&M 34

    Cats aren't good, but they competed for a while. Mid 3rd qtr it was 17-7 and KSU driving but threw a pick six and was never a game again. Aggies keep rolling

    Cal - 21
    UCLA - 59

    Domination, although I still am giving up a ton of passing yards. I guess nobody even wants to try and run against me! Starters only played the first half, scored 3 defensive TD's, pretty much did what I wanted against Cal, leading at half 49-14. Big game next @ Arizona!

    The Hangover Part 3: The Wildcats in Seattle
    Arizona 39
    Washington 42

    After such a defensive success in Tucson, the Wildcats took their act on the road and woke up Sunday morning not sure what the hell happened. They gave up over 500 yards to the Washington offense and 39 points. "We were still hungover from knocking off number 2. I can't let that happen, its on me not preparing my guys," said Coach Jones. "Trust me, i'll have em ready for the Bruins..."
