Lions Rip IlliniThe Penn State Defense Showed Up and Handled Illinois with Ease 10 - 41 State College, PA - After their lack of presence in their 44-26 beating by Nebraska last week, Penn State was ready to come out firing. The Nittany Lions were looking to shut down the Illinois offense. That is exactly what they did. The Penn State defense was highly criticized for their game against the Cornhuskers last week, but after this showing, they will be forgiven. They held the talented offense to only 156 yards of offense, with 91 of those yards coming on the ground. Not only did they halt the Illinois offense, but they started off the scoring after a scoop n' score by LB Khairi Fortt. Fortt would be the defensive leader in this game, as he seems to be the guy to step up and get this defense focused to play ball. Including the FR and TD, he had 6 solo tackles and 1 sack, as he made his presence known throughout the entirety. Freshman DE Darrell Walker continued to show his dominance in the pass rush, with 3 sacks, adding to his already record breaking tally. The number now stands at 19 sacks, through only the first 7 weeks of the season. The offense would also show why last week was a fluke. HB Silas Redd fell in the Heisman race and used that as motivation to put up numbers. Redd had 20 carries for 121 YDs and 2 TDs in this one, which should surely put him right back in the Heisman hunt. QB Paul Jones had slumped over the pas few weeks, but went 8 of 13 for 153 YDs and a touchdown, without any turnovers. HB Bill Belton finished off the game and looked very good, as he is poised to battle for the starting job next season. Belton tallied 61 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Next week, the Penn State Nittany Lions will be out looking for revenge as they travel to Columbus to take on the #3 Ohio State Buckeyes and coach ryty32
Pitt Picks up Another W In this game Pitt would do the opposite of what they do in most games. They would start fast and finish slow just holding on to win the game. Pitt would get their first score on an Isaac Bennett 4 yard TD run. This would be the only score of the first quarter. In the second quarter the Panthers would extend their lead to 14 on a pick 6 by Cullen Christian. 14-0 would be the score at halftime. Virginia would get on the board with a 3 yard TD run to cut the Panthers lead to 7. Pitt would get those points back on the next drive on a pass from Myers to Williams. In the fourth quarter Virginia would get a score. Pitt would respond with 3 points to put them up by 10. UVA would get another TD but it would be too little too late for them as Scott Stratton FG would prove to be the key score to put Pitt over the top.

Where there's a Will . . . The Will Thomas Era has begun in Gainesville QB Controversy ensues Gators beat down Troy Trojans 59-20 After two first quarter interceptions, Coach Sdid decided he had enough. He pushed true Freshman Will Thomas into the game and told him get something done. Thomas responded with a 14-17 206 yard performance passing for two TD's to Jordan Reed and LaTroy Pittman. Andre Debose took a kick off back. Thomas added 25 yards rushing. Speaking of rushing, the Gators may want to lean more on the ground game as Mack Brown went for 96 yards and two TD's and true freshman Julius Chavis had his best day as a Gator rushing for 112 yards and a score. He took a Brian Westbrook knee near the one after breaking off a highlight reel run with a minute to go. WILLY T

NC State shocks Clemson in their Textile Bowl.
NORTH CAROLINA- This was the scene Saturday after the Clemson Tigers were stunned by a relentless NC State WolfPack squad. Offensively, NCST couldn't be stopped as they nearly compounded 500yds of total offensive against the much improved Clemson defensive unit. The game was back and forth for the most part. The Tigers would score a game tying field goal with :35 seconds remaining. However, NCST had other plans as they traveled the length of the field in just one play to hand the Tigers their second loss of the season. After the game, Coach BG had this to say: "They deserved the win! The beat us at every phase of the game and we couldn't adjust. Its not just our kids fault, we were out coached as well. I will take this one as being my fault, but trust me, it will never happen this way again!
Final Score: 27 - 20 NCST
Iowa pays a visit to West Lafayette, shows OMHR the way around town. Iowa and Purdue is a classic rivalry made in the most coveted of histories. The Big Ten thought it would be good for us to be a dedicated rivals once they made the switch to divisions. We were the last guys left to be picked on the playground, so it kind of stuck. But it has not kept it from being fun. Iowa opened this game after a bye week that saw some changes to the depth chart. At QB, JP Brooks had made the jump to QB1. Damon Bullock has not been making an impact out of the backfield, so Iowa looked to Barkley Hill to pick up the slack. At corner, Jordan Lomax and Gavin Smith are splitting time at CB2. Both have been playing well, but it is nice to keep everybody hungry and see if the cream rises to the top. Iowa opened the game with the ball, but went nowhere. On the Boilermakers second play of their possession, Rob Henry found Raheem Mostert over the top of the cover 3 for a long TD pass. After the play, Gavin Smith found the bench for a while as Jordan Lomax came in for some playing time. Iowa responded with a FG, but the next Purdue drive countered that as well. The Hawkeyes stalled again on another drive deep into Purdue territory, but Mike Meyer earned his scholarship by banging home another FG. It was looking like Purdue would have the final say going into the half, but the Iowa defense just crushed Rob Henry, and forced him to the sideline for the remainder of the game. Iowa turned their two closing possessions for the half into two touchdowns to take the lead into the half, 20-10. The third quarter was scoreless until late, when Purdue cut the lead to three. Iowa responded to close the quarter, then put the lead to 17 early in the fourth. The defense made another stop, then Iowa ran the clock to close the game. Jordan Canzeri was player of the game, rushing 18 times for 130 yards and one touchdown, also catching a 79 yard screen pass for a TD. Brooks had a solid day, recovering from two early interceptions and completed 66% of his passes and threw for two TD's as well. The defense was solid all day behind a big day by MLB James Morris. Morris ended the day with 12 total tackles, recording 5 tackles for loss. Up next for Iowa is a huge matchup with Wisconsin. They are on a two game skid, but that is when a team will jump up and bite you. You can never take any team lightly that calls Camp Randall, home.

So there you have it folks, the only way to knock off the Tigers. See the stats below for a clearer image of how this game went down.

Griffin's a bum.
Keep the grass long, slow down the speed. The Bears have been doing it for years.
