    Week 8 **UPSET ALERT**

    N'western: 22
    #14 Neb: 12

    Coach Ken Mooney was very positive going into this year, expecting his team to make a run for the B1G Championship, and todays game against the #14 Corn Huskers might have proved Mooney's positivety correct. N'western came out strong, putting together a nice drive that ended in a Nebraska interception in the near the goal-line "I saw strong side blitz, leaving the TE open and the next thing you know the DE snags the ball away..."-Colter. N'western's defense would answer back, putting Burkhead to the ground for a N'western safety, and the ball back. Nebraska's Offense had to answer for N'western tough defense: 185 total offense, 1 Turnover, 1-7 3rd down, 6 Sacks. Taylor Martinez left the game in the 3rd with an injury, completing 3-5 for a lowly 25 yards passing. N'western offense played a very well rounded game: 194 yards passing and 151 rushing; both offensive touchdowns came on the ground: Green 8 yard TD and Colter 37 yard TD. "I am really proud of these young men. They went out there today, and when no one thought they could do it, they did! This is more of a win for them than it is fo me." -Coach Mooney

    *N'western travels to Iowa to face the Hawkeyes in week 9.

    P.O.G. - LB Nwabuisi - 8 tackels, 6 TKL, 4 Sacks.

    #10 Michigan Bites the Dust!

    Spartan QB Andrew Maxwell played his best game of the year! The QB leads the nation in INTs but not on this day.
    Maxwell 11/18 233 4-TD 0-INT

    On the ground the Spartans pounded the rock all day!
    Bell 24 carries 137yds
    Hill 7 carries for 35yds

    The defense was on fire lead by DE Marcus Rush who had 3 sacks.
    The Spartan defense also had a FF and an INT.

    NOTES: Denard Robinson was injured and did not play the second half.
    However, the backup came in and did make one big play, a scramble breaking two tackles that he ran 68 yards for a touchdown. Overall Michigan really struggled to complete passes all day.

    The Spartans played their best half of the season in the first half as absolutely everything seemed to go our way despite the pouring rain. We took extra care to make sure Maxwell did not throw any INTs which really helped our success. He just took sacks rather than forcing it.
    The run game has had a lot of work on the practice field and it shows. Getting the ground game going is also essential so that the QB doesn't feel like he has to make plays.

    Arizona St 14
    Oregon 20

    This was an extremely frustrating game to play. Oregon registered 36 pancake blocks, including pancaking the entire half of the defense on two separate long runs, one of 95 yards and one of 63 yards. The 95 yard run occurred on a 3rd and 15+ play. On offense, Arizona State gained 37 yards in the first half as Oregon's defensive linemen took turns knocking the ASU LT and RT on their rear.

    The Sun Devils were down 20-0 early in the 4th quarter, when they started to put things together. QB Mike Benvonici threw 2 long TDs to close the gap to 6 with 49 seconds left. ASU then executed a successful onside kick and had the ball around midfield with 49 seconds left. The Devils gained two first downs and were looking good, but had no timeouts. Benvonici threw a slant route to the slot WR Pickens on a first down play and it looked like Pickens crossed the first down marker with ease. But, he was marked a couple millimeters short of the first. ASU attempted to run the ball on the next play to gain the first down and stop the clock, but the entire right side of the offensive line was collapsed by the Oregon D. Time ran out and Oregon survived.

    Most of Oregon's points were the result of the computer moving people out of the way. Oregon converted a 4th down pass with the punter against a perfect defensive call when ASU's CB went into some funky animation that resulted in him whiffing on the ball. That led to 3 Oregon points. The other FG was made possible by a 3rd and 22 conversion by Oregon, where the WR morphed in between two guys that were in perfect coverage. Pictures of the run plays where half the defense is pancaked are available on dynasty wire.

    Iowa: 38
    Penn St: 31

    Game turned out way close than it should have been. Iowa started out running all over Penn St. and jumping out to a 7-0 lead, but Penn St. bounced back thanks to consecutive turnovers to score three of the next four touchdowns in the game to grab a 21-14 late in the second quarter. However, Iowa grabbed back the momentum heading into halftime when the Hawkeye offense drove 80 yards in 1:25 with Kevonte Martin Manley capping off the drive with a 5-yard TD grab to tie the game at 21 heading into halftime.

    Iowa would score the first 10 points of the second half before a frantic comeback by Penn State. PSU first scored on a three-yard run by Silas Redd, then forced a turnover that resulted in a FG to the contest at 31-31 with just 38 seconds left. Iowa took the field at their own 19 with just seconds left in regulation, tossed up a hail marry to their star WR Keenan Davis. Davis was able to come down with the pass around midfield and beat the PSU secondary to the endzone for the dramatic 71-yard TD to give Iowa a big road win.

    Game Balls
    James Vandenberg: 22-32, 325 yards, 5 touchdowns
    Jordan Canzari: 24 rushes for 136 yards
    Keenan Davis: 6 catches for 119 yards and 3 touchdowns

    #20 USC 55
    Colorado 35

    Colorado gets steam-rolled by USC as Matt Barkley plays like the terminator and the entire USC offense was unstoppable all day. Colorado was sacked 4 times by one player alone and threw 3 INTs on the day that resulted in 17 USC points. USC even threw play-action TD passes up 3 scores with around 3 minutes left in the game, and while running out the clock with 5 seconds left elected to kick a FG with two seconds left instead of letting the clock and game expire. They can go fuck themselves.
