Strong Start Propels Wildcats over Sun Devils
Northwestern hosted the Sun Devils from Tempe, AZ and were looking to go 2-0 vs the Pac-12 this season. Northwestern received and went right down the field and capitalized on a Mike Madsen TD. After a 3 and out, Northwestern stalled but forced another 3 and out. Northwestern would not squander another opportunity at points and drove right down the field again and Mike Madsen drove right in for his second score of the game. Northwestern's D continued to hold strong and after another stop, Northwestern QB Matt Alviti hit Taylor Harris for the 16 yard score. Northwestern would get another stop but were forced into a punting situation. The punt sailed and went out at the one yardline. On the next play, Northwestern went into the Bear and sent the heat and Ifeadi broke through and got a safety. Northwestern was on fire and drove down the field and tacked on 3 points. Arizona State would start to get in the groove and drove quickly down the field and tacked on three before half.
In the second half, Northwestern's offense stalled with a bunch of dropped passes. Very uncharacteristic as the drops lead to some short drives. This gave ASU some momentum and they scored midway through the 3rd quarter. Northwestern would begin to rebound but more drops resulted in 2 field goals (51 and 27 yarders). ASU would drive and get a TD in garbage time but the Wildcats would prevail in the end. Northwestern will travel to Atlanta, GA to face the #7 ranked Yellow Jackets.
#14 Illinois 55
#1 Texas A&M 14
This game started innocently. Illinois led 7-0 after 1. A&M tied it early in the 2nd quarter. Both teams had a punt a couple times but Illinois tacked on 2 more TDs for a 21-7 lead. It was a clean half with no turnovers by either team.
Illinois received to start the game so A&M got the ball first to start the 2nd. This is precisely when the wheels came off the A&M bus. The 2nd half started like this:
1st play from scrimmage, A&M INT
19 yard jet sweep for Illinois TD
KO, A&M KRer ROCKED and fumbled, recovered by Illinois
4 rushes later, another Illinois TD
2nd play from scrimmage, 2nd A&M INT of the day
5 plays later, an Illinois FG
In just 3:30 the score went from 21-7 to 38-7 and Illinois cruised from there.
Parker is a BEAST. Here he is trucking TWO defenders to the ground.
They learned the hard way not to stand between Parker and the end zone!
(and, yes, Parker ended the game with 0 broken tackles, despite the run below)
HB#3 Roderick Parker - 8 car, 44 yds (5.5 YPC), 4 TD
Thank you for this, as it likely puts me to #1. Bring on that extra EXP! The downfall here is that #1 is my kryptonite. I can never hold on to it for more then a week or two.
Virginia Tech 14
The Badgers survive against the #4 team in the country. HB Corey Clement put up over 200 total yards of offense and scored 2 touchdowns. QB Cornelius Deluca was efficient, not turning the ball over and tossing 1 touchdown. The Badgers defense shut down the Hokies offense and forced 2 interceptions.
Terry finds Cunningham for a 44 yard TD
Michigan State - 38
#8 Georgia - 17
The first quarter started off rough for the Spartans as Georgia would score the first TD and then Terry would throw a pick on his first pass, allowing UGA to tack on a FG to take an early 10-0 lead. But then Terry shook off the pick and started his career day. The Spartans would score the next 14 unanswered with 2 TD passes from Terry. Georgia would then crush a Sparty drive with another crucial INT that allowed them to take a 17-14 off a TD run by HB Turman. Michigan State would utilize the hurry up offense which saw Terry once again ignore the previous INT and toss a TD to Madaris with 30 seconds remaining to take the 21-17 lead into halftime. The Spartans would control the third with tough defense but would only be able to make 1/2 FG for a TD lead. The Bulldogs would falter on every remaining drive while Terry threw two more TDs to seal the game. He would break a Spartan record with five TD passes in a game but don't discredit the run game as they combined for 221 yards on the ground. The Spartan rush defense kept the Dawgs bottled up, only allowing 43 yards with numerous TFL.
Spartans stun the Bulldogs in Athens. Up next is a Bye before facing Notre Dame in East Lansing

It took 20+ games and 3+ seasons, but it's good to see that Hova FINALLY lost to the CPU.
Now if only NeuroticTruth could get a CPU loss.
UCLA must of been mad after their performance against the wildcats.
Mistakes and big plays were the theme’s today as Rutgers held on for a 3 point lead as they traveled to Auburn for their season opener. Rutgers first year QB Timothy Nash showed his youth as he threw a pick 6 in the redzone. Nash had 3int’s on the day, but 2 were off dropped passed one in the endzone and another inside Auburn territory. As for the big plays Auburn ripped off three big td runs of 81, 75, and 48 which two came off Rutgers int’s. Outside of that The Scarlet Knights pretty much controlled the game on both sides of the ball. Rutgers rolled up 448yrds of offense and Nash spread the ball around nicely as he hit 8 different receivers.
On defense Rutgers was solid outside those three big runs. If you take out those runs Auburn had 10yds on 20atts. RU was equally as good on pass defense only allowing 54yrds through air and also had 4 sacks and 9 tkl for loss. Game was closer than it should’ve been but we’ll take the win.
HB Perkins 34 Carries, 235 YDs, 6 TDs
^All between the tackles out of shotgun. And that is all you need to know. We are going to pretend this game did not happen and move on to next week.
Nebraska 17 - 31 Colorado
Nebraska threw interceptions on its first 5 drives and basically shit the bed. Colorado's offensive line registered a ton of pancakes, despite not having any ratings worth a crap.
Happy Valley, PA l Penn State came into it's week 2 match-up against in-state rival Temple with momentum . This will likely be the last of the PSU/Temple rivalry as Penn State would rather play more difficult opponents in it's OCC moving forward. Nonetheless, we still wanted to showcase the best that the Ninnty Lions had to offer. PSU would open the game trading quick touchdowns with the no-huddle unstoppable cheese of the Owl offense. The 2nd drive for Temple PSU decided they were no longer going to give the Temple QB time to dissect the PSU secondary and began to put some heat on the Temple QB. The result was 7 sacks but they were not able to force a turnover. The two fumbles went out of bounds fortunately for the Owls.
A couple of bad throws but otherwise the PSU passing attack diced up the Temple secondary all afternoon. The poor tackling led to many big gains. PSU RB Lynch once again had a big day as he ran more from under center play calls to see if he had the muscle coming into B1G play. He has no problem running behind the hog mollies on the front lines of PSU. Unfortunately he had a 78 yard screen TD called back due to clipping.
PSU Jr OLB Brandon Bell - 11 tack 2 sacks
