Bye Week: 0
Northwestern kills it in the bye week. Didn't stand a chance. This could be the last win of the season for the Wildcats as the two trips to Camp Randle and Champaign, Illinois. Northwestern has the ability to make a good run and finish second in the West while ruining the Illini's National title chances. But the trip to face 'Sconsin is a huge one as well. A win can help put Northwestern in good position in the west.
Coming into this game coach Jello was very worried about the high powered Nebraska offense that has put up 36 on Purdue, 47 on Northwestern, and 38 on Wisconsin. However, the much improved Illini D more than held their own as they only allowed 9 points on the day. Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong appeared very confuzzled by the Illinois D all day long. He only completed 54% of his passes as tons of his passes (8) hit Illini defenders in their hands while only 13 hit his own receivers. He'd throw 2 INTs, but on their final scoring drive he threw his third INT of the day but was bailed out by a stupid late user hit on the QB.
Illinois' QB Aaron Bailey had no such problems. He completed 76% of his passes and had his first career 300 yard passing day to go with 3 TDs and no turnovers. Take note boys and girls because this is likely the first and only time you'll ever see a coach Jello team with 5* as many passing yards as rushing yards (Illinois was averaging more rushing YPG than passing YPG).
This win clinches the West division for Illinois, but obviously their goals are way loftier than simply winning their division. From a purely selfish POV, this win was huge for coach Jello as it was the 10th straight win this season (16th consecutive going back to last season) and worth a nice 500 XP bump. GG abolishthefed . It looks like my defense is finally starting to shape up. They're still a LONG ways from where I need them to be, but they've definitely improved from 2013 and 2014.
Goal line defense against 4 WRs has become the "in thing" when facing coach Jello.Game Balls:
QB Aaron Bailey - 222.1, 19/25 (76%), 317 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT
WR Jeremey Whitlow - 6 rec, 126 yds, TD
WR Maurice Cooper - 4 rec, 64 yds, 2 TD
CB Omarr Stewart - 6 tkls, INT, 2 defl
K Spencer Lindsay - 3/3 FG, long of 54
Bucky jumped out to a 38-7 lead and played prevent defense as the Boilermakers marched up and down the field in the 2nd half. Both Melvin Gordon and Corey Clement ran for over 100 yards. Purdue threw the ball 46 times for 414 yards. Three interceptions killed their chances however.
This was a restart. We got dc'd at the end of the 1st quarter with the score 21- 7. We manipulated the restart to recreate the same situation.

Ross's Pick Six Seals Michigans 3rd Straight CCG Birth!
Player of the Week: QB Eric Brown - 11/14, 281 Yards, 4 TDs, 9 Car, 44 Yards
-- Coach Truth knew his week 12 game would be a dogfight, as the Wolverines hosted the Hoosiers with a trip to the B1G CCG on the line. Turnovers would prove to be costly for the Hoosiers, especially two second half interceptions (one of which SR LOLB Ross would take to the house). Michigan struggled to find running room for most of the game as Coach Hova's front seven was doing an outstanding job up front, especially with the box loaded. The difference maker this year was the QB play from Eric Brown, who consistently made the Hoosiers pay for bringing their secondary up to try and stop the run. Brown had career high's in both passing yards and TD's on the day. HB Justice Hayes was held in check for most of the day but would eclipse the century mark on the ground on a 72 yard scamper late in the 4th that proved to be the dagger. The victory sealed Michigans fate for their 3rd straight trip the Indianapolis to face Illinois in the B1G CCG.
Wrong week (which I imagine will happen fairly often with our new scoring thread methodology).
