    MSU Loses to Western Michigan 39-28.
    MSU QB's threw 6 INT's and were a combine 24 for 44.
    WR's had 4 drops at just the right times for WMU as they seemed to magically happen on 3rd or 4th down [behind late].
    MSU also had a fumble by the QB that was recovered by MSU.

    Guess we'll ave to blame this on the pouring rain and over confidence, oh and the worst QB performance in recent history.
    Exploring the new playbook this season plus a determined CPU spell doom I guess.

    Yay CPU!
    Good Bye Season.

    Ouch, that'll hurt. Probably won't drop out of the top 25 though, so you have time to rectify the situation.

    Offensive explosion in 3rd quarter propels Illini to victory over Bearcats
    [​IMG]
    Champaign, IL --​
    It appears as if the leash around QB Nate Scheelhaase's neck can't get any shorter, and in a post-game press conference Coach Redhead would neither confirm nor deny who would be starting next week against Oklahoma State. "We appear to have some issues at quarterback with consistency. Nate is a fine quarterback, with loads of talent, who just hasn't quite put it all together yet." That was quite apparent in the limited time Scheelhaase saw the field on Saturday, going 4/8 for 24 yards with 2 INTs, including a pick six to start the 2nd half. He showed some ability with his feet, running for several firsts on option plays. But the quarterback position needs someone with an arm, so enter sophomore Reilly O'Toole, the 6'4 lefty who is just as mobile as Scheelhaase, but with a bigger arm. O'Toole wasn't spectacular, and looked shaky at times. But he didn't turn the ball over, which left a smile on his coach's face. "Reilly looked good out there for us today, he made a couple of big throws deep that were right on the money." Don't be surprised to see O'Toole taking a majority of the snaps during practice this week.​
    This was a defensive battle the entire first half, with both quarterbacks throwing interceptions in the red zone during the first quarter. After the turnovers, both teams would play conservatively, running first and methodically trying to work it downfield but ultimately failing to put points on the board. The first scoring would come on a pair of field goals by Cincinnati with 1:35 and 0:00 left on the clock in the 2nd quarter. The 3rd quarter would get off to a explosive start, unfortunately for the Illini. Scheelhaase made his last bad read of the day when he was intercepted by CB D. Drane, who returned it 25 yards for a touchdown, putting the Bearcats up 13-0 to start the second half.​

    Enter Reilly O'Toole, who actually didn't do too much work on the first couple of possessions. Coach Redhead went back to the ground and pound, down only 2 scores with an entire half left. It paid off, as Donovonn Young tore through the Cincinnati defense and collected 2 rushing touchdowns in the span of less than a minute, thanks to a quick 3-and-out forced by the Illinois defense. After another punt later in the 3rd, O'Toole would connect with WR Darius Millines on a play action bomb that found the receiver 10 yards past the safeties for an easy 68 yard touchdown strike. ​

    Now up 21-13 entering the 4th, and with a QB playing his first game as a collegiate, Illinois scaled it back in the 4th, and tried to protect the lead, relying on the defense. With the Illini offense unable to get in scoring range, Cincinnati took advantage and put together a long touchdown drive, capped with a 2 yard touchdown pass from Munchie Legaux to DJ Dowdy and a 2-pt conversion to tie the game at 21-21 with just over 2 minutes left.​
    Reilly O'Toole showed why he will most likely be starting next week on the last drive of the game, a phenomenal performance for a young QB in his first game ever. He would quickly find Harris for a long 37 yard pass to put the Illini in field goal range. But after a sack and 2 short completions, paired with Cincinnati timeouts, the Illini were forced to kick a field goal with 1:41 left in the game, leaving Cincinnati plenty of time to tie it up, or get the victory.​
    Now it was on the defense's shoulders. After a quick sack and a couple of drops, it looked to be essentially over with the Bearcats facing a 4th and 18. Instead, Legaux lobbed a ball into triple coverage down the sideline that miraculously found his target's hands. The receiver dropped the tip of his foot in bounds before falling out, and a booth review found it to be a catch. Now inside the Illinois 40 yard line, Cincinnati had about a minute left to get 10 yards. Instead, Legaux would take 2 sacks in a row to essentially end the game, as the Bearcats ran out of time before they could get off their 4th down attempt.​

    Washington - 28
    USC - 3


    #2 ranked overall Washington put together a pretty dominating performance against conference opponent #8 USC. The Huskies started the scoring with a 64 yard bomb to Kasen Williams when he was able to get deep and Price dropped it to the inside where the safety had no chance at getting to it. USC would put together a good drive and would make a field goal to make the score 7-3. From there, it would be all Washington, who would go on to score 3 TDs in the second quarter. From there, Washington adopted a more conservative approach. They couldn't score again, but they nailed USC inside the 10 several times. Price through for 328 yards, 4 TDs, and an INT (I pressed the wrong button. :(). Callier ended up just shy of 100 yards on the ground. Freshman Jeremiah Hamilton had a HUGE game, with 9 catches for 96 yards and 2 TDs. He had increased looks due to injuries to Sefarian-Jenkins, Williams, and Smith. They were all relatively minor injuries, and should be back for next weeks game.

    Next week Washington plays Oklahoma in a national championship game rematch.

    Mike Bercovici was 16-24 for 187 yards and 3 TD and RB Kyle Middlebrooks added 71 yards on the ground, as the Sun Devils were able to pick up a win against visiting Cal. WR Kevin Ozier caught 4 balls for 70 yards and 2 TD. CB Alden Darby paced the defense with 7 tackles and an INT.

    The Sun Devils face Texas St next week in Tempe.

    Iowa: 16
    Maryland: 3

    In another ugly game, Iowa was actually able to pull off a victory thanks to a strong defensive performance. Defensive end Ray McMillin had a career day with four sacks and senior CB Gavin Smith picked off two passes en route to Iowa's home victory over Maryland. The Terps knocked Iowa's stating QB out of the game, but the true freshman back-up was able to do just enough not to lose the game. The Iowa running game was somewhat effective, but really it was the defense.

    I'm not sure what the rating matchup was for my lineman to your DE but it was ridic. He blew right past him 90% of the time, nothing could ever develop before pressure lol Also my HBs cannot hold onto the ball so that killed my run game.

    This was a defensive battle all game but both offenses managed to convert 6/10 3rd down attempts leading to some nice drives. Four of those drives ended in 4 FG's, 2 for both teams. With 3:52 left in the 4th it was all tied up at 13. After all the 4 lead changes it came down to the final 2 minutes..Defense from both teams continued to dominate the offenses until the final play of the game when Phillip Sims threw a unbelievable ball over the the defense and WR Dominique Terrell took it 65 yards to the house as time expired. This was one of the funnest user games I have had at TSO, Thanks for a good game uncleho ..look forward to next time.​
    Game Notes: Both teams didn't come close to 100 yards rushing. Only 1 INT was thrown. Colorado WR Richardson didn't have a receiving TD despite 85 yards on the game. ​
    The Cavaliers have a bye week before hosting the Seminoles, week 4.. ​
