Game Summaries: Week 6, Season 2
Post in here.
Washington has a bye this week. Has some new recruiting news to post and will post it tonight.
#20 (4-0) Michigan @ #2 (4-0) Penn State
The Woverines and Nittany Lions both came into this game undfeated and looking for a leg up in the Big10 title race. The PSU defense would hold the Wolverines to 2 field goals in the first half, while the offense coughed up 2 TDs. A 50 yard pass from Newsome to Green and a 2 yard run by the speedster Green again. In the second half, Michigan would make it a game. After a returned fumble on a punt, in which the return man Devon Smith could not wave the fair catch soon enough, Michigan would go for 2, but be denied by the Lions D. A FG would give Michigan a 15-14 lead. In the 4th, Penn State would drive and secure a TD and a 2 point conversion to go up 7, 22-15. The Lions D would hold on and force a game ending interception to keep the Lions undefeated on the year and put them 2-0 in Big10 play.

Minnesota @ Illinois
Gophers take care of business at Memorial Stadium
Both teams came into this game 3-1 looking to catapult themselves into "contender" talk. Both defenses came to play. Only one would walk away and unfortunately for Illini fans it wasn't their day.
1st quarter ended 0-0. The Illini missed a FG while the Gophers were sacked and forced to punt on a 3rd down inside the Illini territory.
In the second quarter the Illini would score first however Jonathan Pittman would run the ensuing kick off back 93 yards to make it 9-7 after the Illini missed an XP.
Illinois would complete some passes but a big injury would occur on a Arrelious Benn catch as he was injured for 2 quarters. The Fighting Illini's QB would get rattled on the next play and throw a pick. 9-7 @ Half
There was no action until 1:47 left in the 3rd as Pittman would score his 11th touchdown of his young career. We would then come up big on the following possession as our defense forced a punt on a huge 3rd and 5.
Minnesota and Illinois would punt twice each. The Gophers would pick up 3 points on a FG that would prove to be the difference. Illinois would score with no timeouts left but failed to send it into overtime on the 2 point conversion.
