    I think Ohio State v Wisconsin will be a great game, but I honestly believe the Red River Rivalry is more worthy of User Game of the Week. I mean it's a classic for crying out loud lol

    To each his own, but given the history between the users in OSU-Wisconsin, the teams rankings, and the fact that neither team plays anybody of worth for the rest of the season (meaning that the winner essentially locks up a spot in the Big 10 Title Game) it gets the nod

    Edit: Ohio State does play Michigan, but if they beat Wisconsin they can lose that game and still be in the conference championship, assuming I don't lose to the CPU

    Tigers end 2 game losing streak

    Tyler Hardy's 2nd career start didn't start off as good as he'd like but he let a early interception get to him, as he put on display in the 4th quarter why he was a big time recruit and put the team on his back and delivered a come from behind win over Mississippi State in a 17-14 dog fight. After coming off back to back losses it looked like the Bulldogs were going to sneak out a win when it took a a 14-7 lead on a Prescott run from the 1 yard line, but Hardy on the next series led the team down the field highlighting the drive with a 29 yard strike to Odell Beckham Jr on a 3rd and 12, 2 plays later Hardy hooked up with Joshua Landry to tie the game at 14-14. It looked like Mississippi St was going to march down the field but Senior Safety Craig Loston picked off a Dak Prescott pass leading to a Jerome Boyd game winning field goal.

    UGA - 56 Kentucky - 17
    Georgia came into this game pissed off about their lack of performance last week. They were determined to kick the crap out of the Wildcats. Aaron Murray and Ross Williams were the stars on offense. Those two alone accounted for 626 yards of offense and 7 td's. Georgia cruised and Murray had his best performance of the season. Kentucky's defense looked confused the whole game. Allowing for the big play downfield by controlling a sound ground attack. A well timed flea flicker was the knockout punch in this game. Georgia has a bye next week before they gear up to face their rival, hated Florida Gators.

    The Virginia Tech defense couldn't make up for their offense today as they were outplayed by the Kansas Jayhawks and were defeated 17-10. The lost puts an end to any hopes of being in a BCS game. "BCS is the least of our problems. Our team has to get their S*&^ together. We can't play like that and expect to win a game. We got outplayed and outcoach at home and the last thing i want to hear is BCS!!!" said a mad and dissapointed Coach Ransom after the game. Jake Heaps was outstanding today has he completed 17 of 18 passes and folks that's a 94 percent completion against the stout Va Tech defense. He also ran and threw for a touchdown. The looks on the fans faces could tell it all as their team that went undefeated last year now has drop 3 games. The team is at a crossroads in the season and the next game will determined how they will look the rest of the season.

    Perfect Season Ends In Instant Classic
    Ohio State loses for the first time in 2013, 35-28 to their division rival Wisconsin. The loss snaps an 11 game Buckeye win streak, and a home win streak of the same length. The Buckeyes now need to win out, and hope for a Wisconsin loss, to win the division and have a chance to repeat as conference champions.
    The turning point of the game came late in the third quarter, with the scored tied at 14. After driving the Buckeyes down field by converting several third down attempts, Braxton Miller severely underthrew Ray Hall on a wheel route and Wisconsin took advantage, as Peniel Jean's 77-yard interception return gave Wisconsin a lead and deflated the Buckeyes.
    Ohio State was able to bounce back, and even took a 28-21 lead in the fourth quarter, but Wisconsin's James White could not be stopped. After tying the game with a 60-yard run, the Badgers forced OSU into a 3-and-out. Wisconsin would run the clock down and eventually score a long touchdown run, as the Ohio State defense purposely caved in an attempt to get the ball back. Miller was able to move the ball to midfield, but his Hail Mary wasn't answered, and Wisconsin came away with the win.
    The Buckeyes will have a chance to blow off some steam next week, as they host Indiana.

    Tough loss CJTHA1 but your still alive for the BCS. You need some help, but win out an a Plateaus division title is still very much possible

    Great game Glen Cieske I can tell this will be an awesome matchup every year to look forward to, and it will almost always decide our division. Losing's tough, but its fun to know that championships don't come easy in this league, whether its a national, conference, or even the division.

    Sounds like a great game guys, nice job Glen Cieske. I don't look forward to possibly playing James White and that offensive line in the Big Ten Championship

    Denard was a sweet runner, but Trick's passing is much better. And Trick is quite the runner in his own right. I look forward to our first match-up, whenever that may be

    Texas Earns the Victory in the Red River Rivalry
    Defense and Special Teams lead the way to 27-10 Win
    Dallas, Texas was treated to a wonderful game in this year's edition of the Red River Rivalry. Texas had all the momentum early on after an early OU turnover and later a big 79-yard punt return for a touchdown by CB Quandre Diggs (who would later leave the game with a shoulder injury). However, Oklahoma fought back in their closing drive of the first half and managed to score their first points on a pretty pass by QB Blake Bell to wideout Kenny Stills and shifted the momentum back in their favor going into halftime. The Longhorn D played well all game and kept Bell's running attack under wraps, as player of the game OLB Jordan Hicks spent most of the contest "spying" Bell. In the fourth quarter, was able to find some running run and eventually scored on a 2-yard run to give Texas a two-score lead that wouldn't be threatened again. Both teams played well, but the big plays just went the Longhorns way in this one leading to a 27-10 UT victory.
    The Longhorns also lost Jr RE Cedric Reed for the rest of the season with a fractured foot this week. Next week, Texas will host a feisty Oklahoma State squad while OU plays host to Rutgers.
