    #1 Ohio State 17
    Northwestern 10
    Coming into this game as a team, the Buckeyes had been leaning on the talents of Braxton Miller to win games. The mark of championship teams is that they don't rely on one or two players to win games because at some point someone else will have to step up and make plays to win a game. Against Northwestern, Carlos Hyde and Bradley Roby stepped up to the plate big time. Hyde rushed 105 yards and a TD on 12 carries, and Roby picked off two passes to seal a win in primetime on the road.
    The game was largely uneventful in the first half with both teams trading field goals. The turning point in the game occurred in the third quarter, when the Wildcats first three drives ended with turnovers. The first was a fumble by Veneric Mark diving for extra yards on third down. This led to a 6 yard TD run by Dontre Wilson. The next series ended with the first of Brad Roby's picks. Immediately after Carlos Hyde scored on a 44 yard TD run. The next Wildcat drive ended on a Corey Brown interception to end the third with a 17-3 lead.
    The Wildcats would put a drive together and put a TD on the board to cut the lead to 17-10. The Buckeyes would move the ball deep into Wildcat territory and take a shot into the endzone off of play-action but Philly Brown wide open and alone in the endzone would drop a sure TD. Two plays later, Northwestern would intercept a poorly thrown pass to give the Wildcats new life. Northwestern would drive down into the redzone and take a shot to the endzone, but Brad Roby was there with his second INT. The Buckeyes would then lean on Carlos Hyde to seal the deal.

    In the interest of being SIM and totally unbiased reasons. I vote that you have to sit Carlos Hyde. :)

    I could do that with no hesitation and not miss a beat in the ground game. We're that deep at HB.

    Week 6 VS ILL.JPG
    Looking for defense? Look elsewhere. A shootout, but hardly old-fashioned, as both teams pounded the ball off their base read-option and the plays based off that. ​
    The Fighting Illini's head man repeatedly emphasized his desire not to have Taylor Martinez beat his defense with his legs. Martinez certainly didn't with his arm, throwing three picks. But while the defense sat on Martinez, Ameer Abdullah went off for a career day of 344 yards, 5 scores and a long of 75 off 22 carries. While many of his carries were off read option handoffs, Abdullah also executed on draws, inside zones, inverted veers and other shotgun runs. Abdullah consistently found the cutback lanes against an overmatched front Illini front seven. ​
    Scheelhaase seemed to have a career day but things fell apart for him late in the game, throwing key picks late the in the game including at the 3:00 mark to set up the game winning drive for the Cornhuskers as well as the final INT to seal the win for Big Red.​
    The win gives the Cornhuskers their first conference win and they will play Purdue next week. ​

    Michigan State:27
    Iowa:25
    Iowa City, IA- Michigan State knew that their tilt against the undefeated and Top 25 Iowa Hawkeyes would be a tough fight, but a game this tight was one for the ages.
    MSU kicked off to start the game, and immediately forced a 3 and out for the Hawkeyes high flying offense. The Spartans moved the ball, but were stopped short of FG range and forced to punt. After pinning the Hawkeyes deep in their own territory, the Spartan defense came up big again and kept Iowa from scoring.
    The next drive seemes to get the Spartans offense on track. After getting a 1st and goal from inside the 5 yard line the Spartans failed to put the ball in the endzone, and settled for a 24 yard FG from Kevin Muma. Iowa bled the rest of the 1st quarter clock and scored a TD with :44 left to take a 7-3 lead into the second quarter.
    The Spartans got rolling in the second quarter putting up 14 points adn taking a 17-10 lead into halftime. Jeremy Langford scored on a 1 yard plunge to retake the lead. Iowa managed to tie the game at 10 when Mike Meyer squeaked a 50 yard FG through the bottom right corner of the uprights. The FG left 1:39 on the clock and left plenty of time for Damion Terry to run his first 2 minute drill of the game.
    After a sack and an incompletion Terry found Tony Lippett streaking down the left sideline for a 34 yard gain and a 1st and 10 at MSU's own 47. A few short passes later the Spartans found themselves at the Iowa 15 yard line. Terry dropped back and hit Andre Sims on a bubble screen for a 15 yard TD and a 17-10 lead.
    The 3rd quarter saw MSU start with the ball, but Terry forced a pass to the WR on a middle screen and gave the ball back to Iowa. Fortunately the Spartan defense was up to a challenge and forced a turnover inside the redzone to keep the Spartans in front. Terry scored on the ensuing drive, running the ball in from 7 yards out to put the Spartans up 24-10 with 4:16 left in the 3rd. Outside of Myers hitting another FG the rest of the 3rd passed without incident.
    Iowa mounted a furious rally late in the 4th, scoring on 2 passing TD's from Rudock, but they failed twice on 2 pt conversions, and were only able to take a 1 point lead. Their second TD left the Spartans 1:20 and 3 timeouts to set up a game winning FG. Terry was masterful again in the 2 minute offense. He led the Spartans down the field, and when they were safely in FG range kneeled the ball to wind the clock. The Spartans took their final timeout after centering the ball at the 23 yard line. And Muma drilled a game winner as time expired. The MSU faithful hope the game winning FG has exorcised the demons the team has dealt with since letting DirtycashDylan and the Horned Frogs escape with a win on a last second FG.
    Offensive Player of the Game
    Damion Terry: 17-25 for 204 yards 1 TD and 1 Interception; added 15 carries for 79 yards and another TD rushing
    Defensive Player of the Game
    RJ Williamson: 4 tackles 1 Interception (one tackle was a bonecrusher at the 1 yard line to save a TD)

    Minnesota 10
    #23 Michigan 27
    Michigan Triumphant vs Rival Gophers
    Vs Minnesota Season 1.JPG

    Michigan would meet Minnesota this week in Ann Arbor for a chance to win The Little Brown Jug and to redeem themselves after a tough loss to UConn two weeks prior. Unfortunately it seemed to be more of the same early on, as the Michigan defense shined while the offense was largly inept in the first quarter as both teams were held scoreless. In the 2nd Michigan struck early as Devin Gardner hit WR Joe Reynolds on an 18 yard post across the middle. The D maintained its intensity headed into halftime with the score 7-3 Michigan.

    In the 3rd Michigan would score twice , once again Joe Reynolds would find the endzone across the middle and then TE Devin Funchess turned a routine drag to the outside into a 44 yard run after the catch to take a 21-3 lead. You may be thinking to yourself, wow Devin Gardner may finally be getting it together, but if you saw the actual game you would know it was anything but. He routinely missed wide open guys by a mile and left a ton of points out on the field. In the 4th Michigan would hit two FGs and maintain its defensive domination to grab the 27-10 victory.

    Coach Ingram is seriously contemplating bringing in the talented true freshman Shane Morris next week vs Penn State . Could Gardner be benched after a 3 touchdown no INT performance? Maybe, but would starting a true freshman QB in his first game on the road in Happy Valley be a better alternative? I dont know. A lot of thinking to do on this one.

    In week 5 we took on the Kansas State Wildcats. It would end up being a very close game going into over time and we would end up losing by a FG. Jeremy Smith rushed for 158 yards and 1 touchdown on 33 carries. Chelf was 13/25 for 224 yards and 2 touchdowns. It was the same story for the Cowboys, all offense and no defense. We allowed 408 total yards of offense. If we don;t figure something out on defense it's going to be a bad year. Final score, Kansas State 34-Oklahoma State 31.​
