    Spartans return home after a 67-58 nightmare to Notre Dame.


    This game was insane.
    After my starting QB Maxwell threw 2 INTs we subbed in the backup Cook and he did the same.
    28-0 ND after the first quarter and it just got worse. ND has 30+ pancake blocks leading to over 200 yards rushing for them.

    Meanwhile MSU just couldn't do anything right and even gave up a safety.
    The ND defense looked PSYCHIC at times, they were just amazing.

    ND 45 MSU 10 at halftime.

    Then the second half started and a legend was born!

    True freshman Clint Callahan was sent in by the MSU staff to see if he could do something at QB.
    The MSU staff called new un-tried plays along with plays that would suit the mobile QB, and they worked.
    Clint lit up ND like nobody's business! He damn near had a comeback win, but fell just short when he was intercepted on the last offensive play for MSU with little time remaining.

    On a personal note I've never played so well in my life in the second half of this game.
    I now some players on the site will cheese in this type of game where the CPU seems unbeatable, but I did not.
    I fought the urge and just played it like they would in a real game by finding things that I thought the kid could do at QB.
    A few times we got lucky when the defense blitzed too much considering their lead but overall Clint just played great.

    I can't wait to see what this kid can do in the future.

    That is scary. Somehow I ended up with Notre Dame on my schedule and my team is rated about 10 points below MSU. Ouch.

    Jr QB Mike Bercovici was 17-25 for 272 yards and 4 TD and had no turnovers for the Sun Devils, as they were triumphant in front of the home crowd in Tempe. Sr WR Jarrid Bryant caugh 8 balls for 169 yards and 3 TD to pace the receiving corps.

    This game basically served as a warmup for a huge out of conference matchup next week in College Park, MD against the Terrapins.

    Illini overcome 28-0 deficit to win barnburner in Stillwater
    GW TD pass from QB #4 R. O'Toole to WR #86 Tim Russell with 00:04 remaining in the 4th quarter

    What a game in Stillwater, where Illinois rallied from a four touchdown deficit to pull off a miracle upset in a game in which they were heavy underdogs against an undefeated and stacked Oklahoma State team, and with a sophomore QB in his first start no less. And boy, did it sure look like that was going to be the case through 2 quarters of play, where the Cowboys caught all the breaks and the Illini just couldn't get a big play at the right time and got some terrible luck along the way.

    The first quarter had Oklahoma State driving deep into Illini territory before they would fumble the ball away to Illinois. The Cowboys would get the ball back and quickly march down field and get a rushing score from HB Joseph Randle. After trading punts, the Illini finally found a groove on offense by going to the ground with HB Donovonn Young, but midway through the drive he suffered a groin injury, and will miss a couple weeks. A few plays later, inside the Okie State 35, backup HB Josh Ferguson coughed it up, and DE Kaleb Cusak proceeded to break 4 tackles and get 2 uncalled clippings to aid him in a 67 yard return TD, putting the Cowboys up 14-0 early in the 2nd.

    Determined to make it a game, the Illini again went to the ground game, this time mixing it up with Ferguson and O'Toole using the read option, along with bringing in former starting QB Nate Scheelhaase to run the speed and power options with some success. But as luck would have it, once the Illini got inside the red zone O'Toole made a perfect pass in the end zone that hit Tim Russell in the hands, but a big hit from a defender popped the ball loose, and it would proceed to hit 3 helmets before a diving catch by CB Larry Stephen made the interception. Then the Cowboys would drive downfield and get another rushing touchdown from Randall with just under 2:00 minutes to play in the half. Down 21-0, the Illinois offense knew they need a score before half to stay in the game.

    Methodically, O'Toole would pitch and catch his way deep into Oklahoma State territory, before facing a 2nd and goal from the 6 yard line. He would hit TE Evan Wilson on a quick out at the 2 yard line, but the defending linebacker swooped in and knocked the ball straight to the ground. CB Larry Stephens would come over and pick the ball up off the ground and run it back 97 yards for a touchdown, with it being ruled an interception. Coach Redhead was livid, throwing clipboards, headsets, and Gatorade coolers left and right while screaming at the officials, who even went to a booth review and claimed the call stood. Down 28-0 with :13 left before halftime, Coach Redhead pulled some trickery and used the Tight I formation to run a play action bomb to WR Spencer Harris, who was wide open down the sideline. An easy catch and run for 75 yard TD pass with :03 left in the 2nd quarter breathed some life into Illinois.

    After what could have only been a rousing halftime speech, the Illini came into the second half playing lights out. They chewed up half the quarter on a long 82 yard drive to start the half that was capped with a short rushing TD by Ferguson, and after an Oklahoma State interception, the Illini drove the ball downfield again and settled for a FG right as the 3rd quarter came to a close. Now down 28-17, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately the Cowboys seemed to turn that light off with a quick touchdown drive to open the 4th quarter, putting them up 35-17 with 6:17 left in the game. But once again the Illinois offense would strike quickly, with Spencer Harris once again the recipient of a 75 yard touchdown pass, finding himself wide open on a post route down the seams. A 2-pt conversion made it a 35-25 game, and the Cowboys played it smart the ensuing possession. Taking their time, they finally ran the ball a majority of the time, with some success, getting down to the Illinois red zone. But on a crucial 3rd and 8 from the 16, QB Clint Chelf was blindsided by LB James Brown, who knocked the ball loose right into the waiting arms of FS Patrick Nixon Youman, who ran untouched 78 yards for a touchdown, cutting the Cowboy lead to three, 35-32.

    A quick three-and-out by Oklahoma State would lead to the Illini having one last shot at getting the win, or least a chance to force overtime. The offense would slowly make their way downfield, having 3 minutes to work with. O'Toole was almost flawless on the drive, dropping passes over linebackers and just out of the reach of ball hawking safeties. But once inside the red zone, it was as if the Okie State staff wired millions of dollars to the offshore accounts of the officiating crew. On first and goal from the 9, a QB draw gets O'Toole inside the 1 yard line, thanks to the QB going for the strip on 3 missed tackles. On 2nd down, a toss outside to Ferguson gets blown up, just like him, and the ball goes flying 5 yards backwards and gets kicked out of bounds at the 10. On a crucial 3rd and goal, the Illini played it safe and just ran it off tackle, but Ferguson found a hole and ran untouched into the end zone for what appeared to be the game winning touchdown. But no, a holding by the WR on the opposite side of the field at the 3 yard line moves it back to the 13 for another 3rd down try. A quick pass gets the Illini to the 4 yard line, and Coach Redhead is faced with a decision. Noticing the defense had jumped the previous 3 snaps, he sent the offense out to just run a quick slant play, hoping to draw the defense offside and get a free play. If not, take a timeout and settle for overtime. And wouldn't you know it, the DE jumped offside, and O'Toole threw the quick slant to WR Tim Russell who was wide open inside of zone coverage.

    An epic comeback win, and what could be the kickstarter for Coach Redhead's Illinois Fighting Illini. A signature win is always needed to help move a program forward, and this was exactly what they needed after falling oh so short against the #2 ranked Huskies earlier in the season.

    CB #20 Larry Stephens, right before halftime, clearly picking up a dead ball on what was ruled an interception he returned 97 yards for a touchdown

    The First half of the game was a shoot out. In the second half N'western changed up its game plan and dominated the time of possession. Indiana missed a crucial 4th and 3 conversion on a QB keeper allowing for N'western to finish the game with a 16 yard TD pass to freshmen TE Bell.

    Iowa: 24

    Iowa was able to get past North Carolina after digging itself a big hole. North Carolina controlled every facet of the game early on and jumped out to a 17-0 lead that left the Iowa faithful shaking their heads. However, Iowa managed to battle back starting with a 51-yard TD run up the middle by Damion Bullock that got Iowa on the board and trimmed the UNC lead to 10 points.

    After another North Carolina FG, freshman running back Mike Lawson took back the ensuing kickoff 104 yards, sending the Hawkeyes into halftime down six points (20-14), but with the momentum. Iowa came out of the break and Iowa's QB James Rudock made his best throw of the game when he found senior TE C. Fiedorowicz for 15 yards but Fiedorowicz picked up some serious YACs by taking the pass the remaining length of the field to give Iowa a 21-20 lead.

    Iowa booted a chip shot field goal midway through the fourth quarter to go up 24-20 and the Hawkeye defense was able to continue it's second half shutout of UNC to clinch the victory. Iowa heads into Wisconsin and Ohio State battles with an overall record of 2-1.
