Game Summaries: Week 4
Post in here if you want to give a recap.
12-6 with a minute and some chage left robo qb of course scores in two minute drill. I drive down with 35 seconds left have about a 40-42 yard fg down the middle maxed kick and he leaves it 2 yards short.
Only if my WR would not have fumbled on the 1 foot line going in.

#24 Minnesota Golden Gophers 28 @ Northwestern Wildcats 31
"The wide open intended receiver caught it but dropped it as he was tackled..."
The Gophers walked into this game prepared and held their heads higher as they dug their way into the top 25. Problem is Northwestern was ready for war too. On the Wildcats first possession they drove down the field with ease as they pounded in a run from 7 yards out to take their first lead 7-0. The Gophers came out and successfully earned a first down but that's all she wrote as they were forced to punt the ball. Defense came up big as we forced a fumble. However instead of scoring Adam Weber gets injured for 2 weeks with a strained elbow. On a 3rd and 1 instead of running we chose to pass and ended up being sacked. FG miss to give the ball back to the Wildcats. Northwestern goes on a tear on the next possession and breaks tackle after tackle on multiple plays. Sidney Stewart gets a 14 yard reception to put NU up 14-0.
Down 21-0 with the offense sputtering, Traye Simmons takes it to the house on a 108 yard kick off to give the Gophers a bit of life. Gophers get the ball back and look like they would turn it around yet the sophomore QB throws a pick inside the 5.
Being down 28-7 you can bet your bottom dollar that the coach let his players have it in the locker room. Eric Decker who had been M.I.A. throughout the 1st half finally appeared and gave some inside news as to what had been said, "I never want to get on coach's bad side again. That is seriously how bad it was." It must have worked because Duane "Let me go!" Bennett busted out the gates on the 1st possession of the half and scored on a 86 yard touchdown to make it a game.
The following possession the Gopher defense did something they hadn't done much all 1st half. They made a big stop. The sour sophomore threw his second pick of the game as the crowd gained some momentum back. However, good redzone defense forced them to kick a FG only to miss to the right by inches.
After punting inside the 5 Minnesota strips the ball on what looked to be a safety but turned into a recovered Minnesota touchdown. 21-28 was the score at this point and what happened next made it even more exciting. Big pressure on a PA forced the NU QB to dump it into the middle of the field where SS Kyle Theret was standing for a INT. Minnesota then tied it up as the 3rd quarter came to a close.
Two HB screens by the Wildcats turned into a 3rd and 25 at their 5 yard line. Wouldn't ya know, they get 24 yards lol.. but are forced to punt. The next possession is what really hurt the Gophers chance of winning the ball game as Duane Bennett went down and didn't want to get back up. Forced to throw more than usual with out the beast in the back field our QB threw his 3rd INT of the game.
Northwestern kicks a FG to go up 31-28 with 2:36 to go in the game. After some decent conversions the Gophers had a chance to either force OT or win the game. They found themselves just inside Wildcat territory 4th and 9. The wide open intended receiver caught it but dropped it as he was tackled... GAME OVER
Duane Bennett had a monster game finishing with 18 carries for 152 yards and 1 touchdown. The next two weeks will be tough as we will be with out Adam Weber, Kim Royston and Duane Bennett. God help us
Badgers comeback from a 27-13 deficit with 1:00 to go in the game to force overtime.
With exactly 1:00 to go in the game, John Clay punched a 1yd td in to make the score 27-20 MSU. The Badgers hands team then recovered an onside kick. With :20 left Dustin Sherer hooked up with Nick Toon on a 16yd td pass down the middle of the field. The game then goes to OT at 27-27.
MSU wins the coin toss and elects to go on offense. After a 9yd run by Jimmerson, MSU QB Cousin's was stuff for a loss on an option play. That brought up 3rd & 6. Cousins completed his 3rd down pass but was a yd short of the 1st down. MSU Kicks a field goal and goes up 30-27.
The first play for the Badger offense in OT was a HB Dive up the middle with Clay which got nothing. On 2nd & 10 from the 25, Wisconsin calls for a quick slant and thats when Dustin Sherer hit Kyle Jefferson who then would break a tackle and walk into the endzone for the Badgers win at Camp Randall.
John Clay put up another solid game for the Badgers rushing for 138yds on 27 carries and a td.
Dustin Sherer struggled in the 1st half but came around in the 2nd half (mostly on the last few drives) to finish the game 15-33 255yds and 2tds along with an interception.
DE O'Brien Schofield lead the defense with 10 tackles, 5 for loss, and a whopping 3 sacks.
The Badgers improve to 3-1 on the season and will have there hands full next week as they travel to Minnesota and take on the Gophers in the longest running rivalry game in college football. The battle for the Paul Bunyan Axe at newly opened TCF Bank Stadium.
Ouch...Thats two playmakers on offense and the ex-Badger. lol
I'm nervous about Gray & Eskridge though.
Oregon St. Victorious over Arizona
The beavers played better than any team I've ever Coached. A quote from coach bkhogfan51.
With QB Kyle Moevao leading the way and setting a new school passing record, the beavers dissected Arizona's secondary. Kyle had 486 yards through the air; etching out the previous holder by 1 yard.
Kyle was qouted saying he owes it all to his receivers. Darrel Catchings(ironic) 8-139 and Shawn McGarity 6-141 were outstanding!
The coaches told the players in the locker room that this was a big win for them, to be proud, but now they have to put it behind them........for next week they are up against an even tougher Coach VTEaZyE86 and his Arizona State Sun Devils!
Cal (1-2) @ #17 Oregon (1-2)
Cal Golden Bears: 13 - Oregon Ducks: 21
In a battle at the bottom of the PAC-10, both Cal and Oregon looked to get themselves back up to .500 to get moving in the start of conference play. Both teams posing as a ground threat with strong running backs in Best (Cal) and Blount (Oregon), the defense needed to stay on their toes to keep the game under control..
Cal started off on a strong drive, which ended with a brilliant play action pass from 10 yards to S. Ladner. Oregon answered on their first drive, also with a 10 yard play action pass strike to N. Ward.
In the second quarter, Oregon moved the ball well again, as QB J. Masoli hit RB L. Blount in an HB screen for 33 yards and the score.. Cal was able to pick up a 43 yard FG as time expired to take the score to 14-10 at the half.
The third quarter was a defensive battle, both teams being held from putting any points on the board.. Oregon struck first, early in the 4th quarter on an 11 yd option run.. Cal made an impressive drive in the middle of the 4th, but could only come out with a field goal, taking the score to 21-13. After a strong defensive performance, Cal got the ball back with a minute to play, but Riley threw a bad pass into double coverage, with Oregon coming down with the pick and the game..
Play of the Game:
Early in the 2nd quarter, Oregon took the lead on a 33 yard screen pass to L. Blount to put the Ducks up with 14 points, proving to be all they needed to take the game away from the Golden Bears

Iowa Injury Report
The Hawkeyes found out bad news thiis week as sophomore sensation Jewel Hampton is lost for the season with a knee injury. Playing behind Shonn Greene last year, Hampton compiled over 500 yds. This year already, he was averaging 120 yds per game. If he had been able to continue at that pace, Iowa would have had back to back rushers reach 1500 yds in a season. Coach Webb was quoted, "Well the workload now falls squarely on the next man up." Jeff Brinson is that next man, and this injury may force the Hawkeyes to remove the redshirt from much heralded freshman Brandon Wegher.
sorry to hear that man
