    #20 MSU Loses to #2 Wisconsin 37-28

    Despite the CPU shenanigans MSU just flat out blew it.
    We got away from the run game too early and Maxwell tossed 2 INTs when guys were wide open.
    MSU also had a dropped TD pass that was simply unbelievable.

    Despite Bell breaking his longest run of the year 39 yards, his 67 yards on 17 carries gets him a second string role for the remainder of the year.
    Sophomore Jeremy Langford will get the starting nod next game.

    Wisconsin kept safety blitzing which really helping keep MSU in the game as they burned the Badgers deep several times.
    However, the Wisconsin offense was unstoppable almost all day long.
    Ball rushed for 245 [please see highlight film] and O'Brien threw for 300+.
    The Badger O-line tallied a whopping 28 pancakes [compared to MSU's 5].

    MSU looks like they'll drop out of the rankings just as fast as they got back in.

    Week 9
    N'western: 30 (OT)
    Iowa: 24

    Week 9's match up between #25 N'western and Iowa was the definition of excellent B1G football. It was a cold, rainy and windy day in Kinnick stadium and both teams were looking for a victory. Iowa started off strong with a quick 1 minutes drive that ended with a 14 yards Touchdown pass to Martin-Manley. N'western would answer back with an ever-so-long 10 minute drive ending in a Perkins 3 yard TD run. Iowa could not anwser back in the first half, missing a game leading 35 yard field goal. Iowa would not be able to score again, until the crucial 4th quarter while N'western was able to sustain long drives every chance they had the ball, beating Iowa in the TOP 17:42 to 10:18. Iowa and N'western are both known for dominating the offensive side of the ball wth the ground game, today was not the case. Iowa ran for a total 44 yards on 16 attemps, N'western did no better: 28 rushes for 66 yards. Both QB's came-out firing:

    K Colter: 15-22 209 yards 2 TD's
    J. Vandenberg: 21-28 289 3 TD's 1 INT

    I cannot express enough how intense this football game was. Both defenses were able to hold strong throughout the game, except for 3rd down. Iow converted 6-8 (75%) and N'western converted 7-0 (70%). Both of these teams had impressive 4th quarter performances. with a 1:54 remaining in the game, Vandenberg through a 37 yard touchdown pass that looked to maybe close the lid on this tight game. N'western was not going home without a victory, charging down the field and completing a 15 Yard TD pass over the middle to TE B. Smith. With 51 seconds left in the game, Iowa made one of the most impressive drives, making 51 seconds last a lifetime. Iowa was so close to getting a game ending touchdown but it was stopped short of the goalline, forcing Iowa to kick a FG to sending this game into OT.

    N'western had the ball first, completing a 22 yards passing Watkins, Iowa would then answer back with a short 4 yards TD pass TE Davis. The game was tied, Iowa starts off with the ball in the second round of OT. Coach Mooney notices that Vandenberg has been using his TE to expose the middle
    a great deal. Mooney instructed his defensive to keep an eye on Davis and to protect the overly exposed middle field. Vandenberg got unders center, took the snap, threw to TE Davis and...BOOM! N'western's Daniel Jones snags the ball from the sky and takes it back for an 85 yards pick-six! N'western wins in Iowa bringing there record to 8-1 (5-0), Iowa falls to 5-4 (3-3). N'western looks to improve its #25 ranking and solidify their spot in the B1G Conference Championship, in the weeks to come. N'western gets some much need rest in Week 10 and Iowa will be looking for victory when they face off against the Indiana Hoosiers.

    #19 Virginia 10
    Arizona St 24

    This was a wacky game all around. ASU's defense tallied 15 passes defended without an interception, while the Virginia receiving corps dropped 9 balls - many of those could have sustained drives. Neither team had a turnover in the game.

    Virginia won the toss and elected to defer to the second half. ASU started with the ball around their own 20 and marched down the field for a game opening TD on a 36 yard TD run by HB Cameron Marshall. Virginia went 3 and out on its possession and punted the ball away. ASU marched to the Cavalier 22 on another long drive and opted for a 39 yard FG for a 10-0 lead with 1:02 left in the first quarter. However, the two score cushion would be short lived. UVA HB Perry Jones took a beautifully blocked draw play 75 yards for a TD to cut the ASU lead to 10-7.

    Both defenses took over in the second quarter. The only scoring was a UVA FG with 4:06 left to tie the game at 10.

    Virginia received the ball to start the second quarter, but their offense was stymied by the ASU front. After the punt, the Sun Devils had the ball at their own 45 and elected to try a play action pass to take the top off the defense. Sr WR Jamal Miles ran a streak down the sideline on the play. QB Mike Bercovici saw man coverage and heaved the ball up. The UVA coverage was good, but Miles made a miracle reception at the 5 yard line, stayed upright and scored for a TD and a 17-10 lead. Bercovici was 13-12 on the day for 152 yards and 2 TD. Virginia was stopped again on their next drive and was forced to punt to ASU. The Sun Devils were able to score on a 25 yard pass from Bercovici to backup TE Chris Coyle. Basically, the computer took the Virginia defender out of the play for some stupid animation.

    The rest of the game involved the ASU defense trying to stop the Cavalier passing game and the offense trying to run every play to take down the clock.

    Washington - 41
    Oregon State - 16

    Washington's offensive line struggled for most of the game, but the defense held strong and the skill positions were able to make some plays and get the Huskies off to a 17-0 lead. At this point, Coach Wickert was sick of seeing his QB get smashed, and wanted to start evaluating talent for next year, and brought in the 2nd string on both sides of the ball. The defense played pretty poorly, but the offense was able to move the ball fairly well.

    Derrick Brown completed 9/11 passes for 113 yards and 2 TDs. He also ran for 55 yards on 7 attempts and earned player of the game honors.

    Next week the Huskies will play Troy in what looks to be a warmup game for current #3 Utah.

    Colorado 27
    #10 Oregon 23

    Colorado dug themselves into a deep hole in this game, facing a 13-0 deficit at halftime, the Buffs WRs dropped 3 passes on third downs that would have kept drives alive. The running game was shut down completely. QB Nick Hirschman threw 2 interceptions and was sacked 3 times while the Buffalo defense got pancaked all over the field. CU recorded 3 sacks of their own in the first half but all were on bad screen plays by the offense.

    The Buffaloes went down 16-0 midway through the third quarter before the offense would finally wake up. Going almost exclusively to the air Hirschman led them down the field and connected with WR Keenan Canty for an 11 yard TD to finally get on the board 16-7. That woke up the CU defense and they started getting after people, forcing a fumble that they recovered and got the offense back out on the field. Hirschman again threw the ball well and connected with TE Kyle Slavin on a 14 yard TD reception to cut the lead to 16-14 Oregon right near the end of the third quarter.

    The Oregon starting QB Bennett would go out very early in the third quarter as the cumulative hits he took finally gave him a mild concussion. This didn't stop Oregon from answering though and with 5:28 left in the game back up QB Dustin Haines hit his WR who beat man coverage for a 37 yard TD pass to extend the lead to 23-14 Oregon. Hirschman got back on the field and was on fire, leading a two play drive that ended when he found WR Tyler McCullough down the seam for a 34 yard TD pass. Down 23-21 the Buffalo defense stepped up and continued to harass Haines and put him out as well for at least a few plays. Down to their 3rd string QB the Ducks coughed up the football again when he tried to scramble when no one was open. Hirschman led another solid drive that was a little too quick, but HB Tony Jones took it in from 8 yards out to give Colorado the lead 27-23 with 2:57 left in the game. The ensuing two point conversion failed, and the CU defense stopped another drive while the CU offense took a little more time off the clock before punting on the final play. Unable to return the punt Oregon falls to Colorado.

    QB Nick Hirschman 21/29 344YDS 3TD 2INT

    Maryland hosted ACC foe Boston College this week at home and came out with the big W. It was a dominant performance on both sides of the ball with the offense racking up 354 yards and the defense only allowing 167 along with 2 turnovers. HB Pickett had a huge day despite a fumble, rushing for 152 yards and 3 scores. QB CJ Brown also lead the team like a champ going 12 for 17 and throwing over 200 yards with 2 TDs. The Terps are now 7-2 and bowl eligible as well, a very successful season thus far. The next 3 games get very tough for the Terps beginning with GTECH on the road for a huge inner division matchup for the division lead.
