    Nebraska Wins Thriller VS Northwestern in Double Overtime 41-35

    Nebraska got all it could handle on the road against the Wildcats, but were able to gut out an impressive win in Evanston. Early on things looked to be in control for the Huskers. They got on the board first thanks to a 77 yard touchdown reception by McDonald from King. Northwestern would answer with a 15 yard touchdown toss from Sims to Britt, and Nebraska would punt their next possession away- however, pinning Northwestern inside the 20. The Wildcats moved the ball a few yards, but on third down Nebraska CB Rhodes snapped in front of a Sims pass and took it 27 yards to the house. The teams exchanged a couple punts, and Nebraska eventually got another touchdown from McDonald, this time from 42 yards out. Sitting at 21-7 Nebraska looked they would maybe be able to put this one away early, but Northwestern stormed back scoring a pair of touchdowns before halftime to make it 21 all.

    The third quarter saw both defenses settle down and keep the offenses out of the endzone. Northwestern was able to find the endzone early in the fourth thanks to a great drive capped off by a 4 yard TD run by Bolden. Nebraska would punt multiple times, and got the ball one last time with about 3 minutes to go. Cory King led a masterful drive, running the option well and making good decisions both in the run and pass game. At the goalline, on 4th and 1, the Huskers found themselves at a pivotal point in the season.

    "That huddle, man, it was just pure focus," stated Cory King after the game. "We knew if we dropped this one we were going to have a very difficult time catching up in the conference race. We knew we had to find a way to get this ball into the endzone."

    And so, with 30 seconds left on the clock, King pitched the ball outside to RB Adrian Williams. A Northwestern safety looked to be coming up to make the play, but TE ** made a magnificent block and Williams was able to waltz into the endzone. Off to overtime we go!

    Nebraska lost the toss and had to take the field on offense first. King again was dead on both running and passing, and would cap the drive off with a well ran WR Motion Option play to McDonald from 5 yards out. The defense however would give up a touchdown as well, and into the second OT we went. Nebraska was bending again, until senior defensive captain Erik Arnold made a great interception from his SS position. Northwestern looked deflated on defense after the turnover, and it took Nebraska 3 running plays to score the winning touchdown- thanks to a 12 yard speed option and a broken tackle by Cory King --- helluva game.....

    Hey I was cocked and ready they just found a way to get back in it. Loved the game though as there really wasn't anything that made me say "Yeah I bet.." was just good football on both sides.

    #2 Michigan 30
    #11 Penn State 7

    Penn State's offensive woes continued on Saturday when they faced the reigning champion Michigan. The defense played really well overall, but the lack of offensive production completely killed Penn State's chances in the game. McIntosh threw another 3 INTs to 0 TDs. The lone PSU touchdown was a 42 yard run out of the shotgun by Ryan Moore. If PSU had any semblance of an offense, this game could have came down to the 4th quarter. Michigan's great defense and PSU's poor offensive play was too much to overcome. Penn State loses another and drops to 4-4 on the year.

    Clemson wins Textile Bowl:

    The Tigers get conference win #4 today as they took another decisive win from NC State, 55-21. In another disappointing start for true Freshman Mike Curry, Coach Burgdorff finally pulled the plug on him. Curry started off the season lights out but his inexperience finally caught up with him. He missed WR after WR and threw an interception. He was able to hook up with WR Chase Mangum for a 9 yard TD but too many mistkes was his downfall. Senior(RS) EJ Suggs will take over the remainder of the season. With a strugglig Curry another true Freshman stayed on fire scoring 3 times and rushing for almost 200 yards. RB Jeremy Mason has been on a tear this season and he is only a Freshman! Tiger fans definitely look forward to seeing him for years to come. A couple of weeks ago it was Sophomore(RS) WR Jared Williams being the go to man but today it was all Chase Mangum. He had over 100 yards receiving and finished with 1 TD.

    Another move was made before today's game by Coach Burgdorff in moving true Freshman MLB Luke Smith to a starting role. Smith proved the move was a smart one by forcing two fumbles (82 Hit Power) and scoring an 11 yard TD on one. He didn't make many tackles but the Freshman definitely will be seeing more playing time. Other Tigers got on the fumbling rampage by stripping the ball from either the QB or RB. The defense caused 6 turnovers and did fairly well in holding the NC State offense in check.

    Clemson hits the road next week as they face Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

    FINAL SCORE: 55-21

    Purdue gives up late rally to Illinois, but then comes up with a miracle rally of their own

    This one was tight all the way through. After no scoring in the first quarter, the teams traded touchdown runs in the 2nd before Illinois kicked a 45 yard field goal to take a 10-7 lead into the half. In the 3rd, Illinois would strike again on a 26 yard touchdown run in which two Purdue defenders met the RB in the backfield and both were shook off. But Purdue would not go away quietly. Joe Walker would fire a 22 yard TD pass to Jeremy Fagan and then a touchdown run on Purdue's next drive would give the Boilermakers a 21-17 lead. Illinois' QB would scramble for a 13 yard touchdown run with 3:46 remaining for a 24-21 lead.

    Purdue would be looking for that game winning drive, but they were shut down at midfield as they failed to convert on 4th down with just 1:10 remaining. The Boilermakers would use all their timeouts to give themselves a chance. They would get a stop and Illinois would punt one into the end zone. So Purdue would start from their own 20 with a little less than a minute to go. Star wide receiver Matt Lee had been limited all game. Despite some great returns on special teams, he had only one catch in the game. However on the final drive, he came up big. He had two huge catches that would get Purdue to the Illinois 43 with under :40 seconds to play. Then came the back breaker, out of timeouts, Joe Walker would drop back and get sacked. With WRs running deep routes, the clock was ticking as he hurried everyone back to the line. On the next play, he was blitzed and forced out of the pocket. Walker would throw this one well off the mark incomplete stopping the clock.

    Things looked bleak as Purdue was sitting at 3rd and 18 with just :25 seconds to play. Not wanting to get too desperate, Purdue decided to take two downs to pick up the first. Walker would find Purdue's #4 WR, Redshirt Senior Roland Lewis for a 10 yard completion on the next play as Lewis would duck out of bounds. However, Walker was hit hard on the play and knocked out of the game.

    The WRs were all gassed. A couple of the starters were taking a breather. Backup quarterback Jeff Williams would have to come into the game. And on 4th and 8, Williams would drop back as Illinois brought yet another heavy blitz. Williams held strong in the pocket and let the ball fly just before being hit. It wasn't Purdue's star WR Matt Lee that he was throwing to. It wasn't their #2, #3 or #4 WR either. It wasn't star tight end Jeremy Fagan. It was sophomore William Riley. The #5 WR on the depth chart. And Riley would make the catch on the deep out route. As the safety covering him stumbled, Riley turned it up field. It would be a foot race, and it would be a race that Riley would win, taking it 41 yards to the house for the winning touchdown with 15 seconds to go. This gentlemen, is how heroes are made.

    Purdue- 28
    Illinois- 24

    MVP of the game: William Riley: 1 catch-41 yards and 1 TD

    Michigan 30
    Penn St. 7

    Michigan started this game off with what was almost a pick 6 on a 3rd and long corner route jumped by CB Justin Sanders, but he was tackled inside the 10 yard line. Gene Alexander, the Jr. RB that took true Freshman Jamie Thomas' spot since Thomas is out with injury until bowl season, took it in from there to go up 7-0. Penn St. would have a solid drive, and a long run for a touchdown, but that would prove to be their only score of the day. Michigan answered with back to back field goals before finally scoring a touchdown with 3 minutes left in the half to put the score 20-7. Michigan would have another chance, but with the wind not in their favor, decided to try to throw for a touchdown instead of kick the field goal, but Garcia was hit as he threw and the ball fell harmlessly to the ground. Michigan would open up the 3rd quarter with a field goal then grab a pick 6 as the quarter ended to make the score 30-7. Penn St. came out on their first possession of the 4th quarter running the ball and running the clock, so Michigan decided to do the same. Penn St. started throwing a little bit more on their last possession, and took the ball all the way inside the 5 yard line, but the Michigan defense stopped them 4 straight plays for the turnover on downs and kneeled the ball out to end the game. Michigan now has it sights set on Iowa before it faces off against Purdue and Nebraska and finally Ohio St. to end the regular season.
