    Great work last week guys and congratulations to Glen Cieske and cyhiphopp on your victories.

    Good luck to the guys squaring off in user games. HUGE games for both the Big Ten and the PAC14.

    Cy's coming off a huge victory, while Spayer419 is coming off an uncharacteristic loss. Glen dominated Oregon, and took home the huge non-conference win. This week's user v user ballot is the best yet and I'm looking forward to each matchup. Glen takes on Spayer, and Cmassey travels to College Station to play Cy and the A&M Aggies. Have you guys been figuring out a time to play?

    As for everyone else, it looks like we've all got our games in! Great work guys, that's a great pace!

    So it looks like we'll have a bit of a delay for this week, which I'm fine with.

    Weve been going at a pretty good pace, so a little delay to ensure user games is fine by me.

    BUCKEYES RETURN TO FORM FOR 34-31 WIN AGAINST #2 WISCONSIN

    A week after getting throttled at home by now-No. 1 ranked Texas A&M, Ohio State traveled to Madison, Wisconsin searching for a statement win and a chance to regain their pride. The Buckeyes returned home with both after defeating the No. 2 ranked Badgers, 34-31 in a typical classic against a well-coached Glen Cieske squad.

    After starting the season a bit too pass happy, coach Speyer resolved to get the run game more involved with a now healthy Aaron Jenkins and Buster Taylor splitting the load. The plan seemed to be working midway through the first half, as Jenkins plunged into the endzone to give Ohio State a 7-3 lead. But Wisconsin struck back immediately when return specialist Scott Edmonds decided to take a chance after fielding the ball 7 yards deep in his own end zone. The gamble paid off. After breaking one tackle, Edmonds was pushed sideways and nearly lost his footing. But the senior regained his balance and left a trail of Buckeyes in his tracks for a momentum swinging touchdown.

    Things went from bad to worse for Ohio State on its next drive. After marching to midfield with relative easy, Elijah Canaan tried to setup a slip screen for tightend Thaddeus Dawkins. The play was covered, and when Canaan threw the ball into a Badger cornerbacks back, it seems to be over. But a Wisconsin linebacker made a shoe-string interception off the deflection giving the Badgers fantastic field position and eventually a 17-7 right before intermission.

    For the second straight week Ohio State was on the brink of being blown out. This time the Buckeyes had an answer. With the ball at its own 20 yard line and 11 second left, Canaan launched a 53-yard bomb to Daquel Newell, who dove over the back of his defender to make the catch of the season. Ohio State tacked on a field goal to cut the lead, 17-10.

    On the opening drive of the second half Ohio State returned to the ground, as Buster Taylor ripped off a stunning 49-yard touchdown run on a crucial third down play. The senior ripped through the first level of defenders, shed an arm tackle, and then proved to have enough speed to leave the defense in pursuit. But Wisconsin answered with a drawn-out touchdown drive as only the Badgers can produce. With the score Wisconsin retook the lead, and seemingly some life out of Ohio State. Well, except for Canaan and Newell.

    On the next play from scrimmage Canaan threw a dart to his favorite 6-foot-4 receiver, who made one defender miss and then turned on the afterburners for a 75-yard pitch and catch. The two would connect again from 6 yards out to give Ohio State its first lead since the early stages of the second quarter, 31-24. But Wisconsin again marched down field, converting twice on third down and once on fourth to knot the game at 31 a piece.

    With 2:21 remaining, Ohio State resolved to score on its last drive or sit on the ball and play for overtime. One way or another, Wisconsin would not regain possession. Playing fairly conservative, Canaan made a few impressive throws to move the Buckeyes just past the 50 yard line with under 30 seconds remaining. With the clock running on a third-and-9, Canaan drained the clock to :11 seconds before initiating the play. He then found Newell one last time on an outward post for a 25-yard completion. The Buckeyes would tack on a field goal from 36-yards out as time expired to seal the game.

    Player of the game Mark McNeal gets the early INT


    Arkansas came into College Station for another installment of a great user rivalry. This one did not end up an Instant Classic like previous meetings. Arkansas started off great. No surprise they kept the ball on the ground with Brink with early success. However when they attempted to mix it up and go to the air, Senior defensive leader LBer Mark McNeal made his presence known with a redzone interception. Arkansas defense was ready to play though and forced a punt. Mark McNeal wasn't done. On the first play after the punt he caught up with Razorback QB Kelly Scott on a scramble and put the hurt on him, forcing a fumble and giving TAMU great field position. The Aggies capitalized with an early momentum clinching TD. A&M would put another TD on the board in the second quarter for a 14-0 halftime lead.

    The Arkansas offense could not get going and Coach CMass would give Kelly Scott the hook after his third INT and fourth turnover of the game. Things didn't go any better for Mark Rivero who threw two picks. The field position advantage was too much for the Razorback defense to overcome.
    Arky would get a garbage time touchdown to prevent the shutout.

    41-7 final

    Mark McNeal earned Player of the Game honors leading the team with 8 tackles, 1 INT, 1 Sack, and 1 Fumble forced. He will get to wear #12 for the upcoming matchup with The Washington Huskies.
