Defense, Ground Game lift Bucks to 38-17 Victory over #16 PSU
The big questions going into this game were if the Bucks were as good as they looked so far and could PSU recover from a tough loss the week before. The answers were yes and no. OSU's defense was strong the whole game and took advantage of PSU playing its backup QB to pull away to a 38-17 road win. The Bucks picked off Rob Bolden 4 times and held star rushed Silas Redd to 71 yds on 18 carries. On offense, it was a healthy dose of short passes and Jamaal Berry.
After PSU kicked a 37 yd FG, OSU took the lead for good with an 11 yd pass from Braxton Miller to Philly Brown. In the 2nd half, OSU got the ball first and on the first play from scrimmage, Jamaal Berry broke free down the right side for a 75 yd score. 3 minutes later, OSU was driving again inside PSU's 15 when Miller was hit hard and fumbled. PSU picked it up and ran it back 78 yds to make this a big swing from potentially 21-3 to 14-10. However, OSU was able to right the ship and turned it on. After a Drew Basil FG ended scoring in the 3rd, Zack Boren was able to bust through from 1 yd out to give the Bucks a 24-10 lead. After a Bolden INT, Jamaal Berry caught a screen pass and went 58 yds untouched to give OSU a 31-10 edge. The Bucks were warning up the backups until PSU broke off a big play and then finished the drive with a 5 yd pass from Bolden to TE kevin Haplea. OSU quickly iced the game when Berry broke free for 1 last big run and scored from 71 yds. After that, the backups came in and ran out the clock.

Michigan vs Minnesota was completely a one sided game. The Wolverines defense was too much for Minnesotas Qb Gray, who was 9-29 for 59 yards. Rb Edwards was also held in check all game by the Michigan defense who rushed for 26 yards on 13 attempts. Minnesota only had 249 total yards on the day. Michigan's Jr Qb D. Gardner had another decent game while starter Denard Robinson is out with a broken collarbone that ends his senior year. Gardner moved the ball around the field well, starting out goin 10-10 before making his first incompletion. Devin ended the day 18-28 for 227 yards and 2 tds and continues his streak of tds without throwing a int. Michigan's ground game wasn't as great as it has been in prior games. Rb's Stephen Hopkins and Vincent Smith combined for 25 carries 145 yards and 1 td. Gardner had both goalline tds for Michigan and connected with SR Stokes and promising True FR Webster for 2 Tds.
Next on Michigan's schedule is Rival Michigan St. Last time these 2 teams faced michigan won 31-20 in a snow storm. This should be a good tune up game for Coach Swoboda as he travels to Lincoln to face off with his arch-rival Coach Swoboda in week 9.

Nebraska's defense dominates and the Cornhuskers get their 5th win of the year. Nebraska jumped on the Spartans early and lead 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Cornhuskers added another TD in the 2nd quarter and Michigan State hit a deep FG as time expired in the first half as Nebraska took a 21-3 lead into half. Nebraska continued to dominate in the 2nd half as they added 10 points to their lead in the 3rd. In the 4th quarter Nebraska got their backups some playing time with a 31-3 lead and Michigan State got a FG and a TD against the backups. Nebraska would add a TD and win 38-13. Nebraska QB Brion Carnes had another great game as he went 17/28 passing for 321 yards and 2 TDs and 1 rushing TD. Nebraska has a huge Big 10 conference game next week as they welcome the Penn State Nittany Lions to Lincoln, in what should be a good game.
...So when we advancing? =D
