Illinois finished up their tour of the SEC this Saturday as they hosted Missouri (all of their OOC opponents were SEC teams in #3 Alabama, #1 Texas A&M, and Missouri). The Illini D gave up a couple of early scores, but flexed their muscles and didn't allow a score in the 2nd half. Illinois gets a BYE week next before they host their 3rd top 3 opponent in #1 Michigan in their B1G opener.

Northwestern Stings the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta
Northwestern traveled to Atlanta to battle the Ramblin' Wreck and Georgia Tech. Northwestern stretched it streak of first drive TDs with a masterful drive capped off with a corner route from Jake Lloyd for a beautiful TD. Georgia Tech would respond with 7 of their own showing the Triple Option isn't yet out of date. After Ga Tech forced a 3 and out (mostly due to two dropped passes), Northwestern's D stiffened and held the Yellow Jackets to 3 points. Northwestern would get the ball rolling again but would ultimately be held to 3 themselves. Northwestern began to figure out how to stop the Yellow Jackets. Some 5+ blitzes were needed as sitting back and waiting to read was only giving the Yellow Jackets ample time to read and react. So with that, Northwestern got a stop and with that, drove down the field and scored with 12 ticks on the clock before half time.
Northwestern continued to put Ga tech into passing situations and they were unable to capitalize going 1-4 on 3rd down conversion passes in the 2nd half (the one completion a 37 yard corner route). Northwestern kept the pressure on and the Wildcat rushing attack worked oddly well. Ga Tech was content letting Malin Jones gash them for over 100 yards on the day and it helped keep the option offense off the field, forcing Ga Tech to be down big with not much time left. Ga Tech wasn't able to fight back once down by 3 scores and Northwestern celebrated a huge upset of the #4 Yellow Jackets. Northwestern will travel to Bloomington Indiana to face Coach Hova and his Indiana Hoosiers to start conference play.
#11 Oklahoma 14 - 30 Nebraska
The Huskers put an ass whoopin' on the Sooners a week after laying an egg in prime time against Colorado. Nebraska's defense front controlled the game, with 9 TFLs and 3 sacks. Oklahoma ended the game with only 211 yards on 38 plays and an amazing 0-8 on 3rd down. Husker DE Greg McMullen registered 6 TFL and 3 sacks. 98 overall rated Sooner QB Travis Knight finished the game 13-24 for 83 yards. Eight of those receptions went to 96 overall HB Ross, as the computer continually ran screens and check downs.
Rutgers travel up the road to Connecticut to take the rival Huskies for their second game of the year. Things got off on wrong the foot as Nash had couple early picks that lead to a UCONN 14-7 lead. Rutgers offense moved the ball well but had trouble scoring as the Huskies were constantly applying pressure. Down 24-20 late 4th Rutgers was able to string together a long drive that would end in a TD that would seal the victory.
The Boilers were on the road again this week facing the Wolfpack of Nevada. The story coming into this game was the poor line play by the Boilers in the blowout loss. After a long look into it the coaching staff determined starting QB Danny Etling was not getting the line into their proper assignments due to his low awareness. So he was put on a short leash that lasted 1 pass that was intercepted and returned for a TD. Nevada's only TD of the game. Redshirt SR Austin Appleby had waited patiently all his career and now the keys were thrown to him.
After a slow start Appleby got things rolling by taking care of the ball and throwing 2 TD passes. Whether it was a change in play calling or players playing, the offense was more balanced and sustained a lot more drives. In appreciation the defense play extremely well shutting down Nevada's passing game.
QB Appleby 22/28 286 yards, 2 TDs, INT
HB Green 17 att, 75 yards, 3 rec, 12 yards, TD
TE Carvajal 9 rec, 155 yards, TD
Maryland wins big at home 49-13. Maryland was lead on offense by QB P. Hills who passed for 282 yards and 3 TDs with only 12 completions. Most of the yardage was gained on two big pass plays both of witch went for 70 + yards.
Michigan Continues to Dominate Notre Dame!
Player of the Game: QB Shane Morris - 14/17, 172 Yards, 3 TDs
-- The Michigan Wolverines continued their dominance over Notre Dame under Coach Truth's tenure. Starting QB Eric Brown went down in the 1st half, some what derailing the would be early route. Early signs point to him missing a week or so with a strained pectoral muscle. QB Shane Morris would fill in nicely, finding his grove in the 2nd half (in what is his first real playing time as a Wolverine). Morris would seem to have great chemistry with his receivers, connecting with SR WR Dennis Norfleet. Starting HB Jeremy Huffman continues to fill in nicely for the departed reigning Heisman winner Justice Hayes, as he went over 100 yards for the 2nd consecutive game.
