Week 3 could dictate a lot in the BIG Ten…  Big Ten went 9-4 record during Week 2 so, again, who will remain undefeated? Teams can not let opportunities slip away. Let’s recap Week 3….

2347

As we board the plane to head back to Illinois, the thing we remember the most from this game is PENALTIES! Whew…. Ok. USF and Illinois racked up penalties at almost an all-time record where 26 combined flags accepted. They would finish with 31 combined. USF won the game, 47-23, but that’s beside the point. If all you can remember is yellow flags in a game, there’s a problem.

The NCAA record is 42 penalties, from a 1986 game between North Carolina Central and St. Paul’s. The Division I record is 39, which has happened in four games. The FBS record is 36, from a 1986 game between San Jose State and Fresno State. The Spartans had 24 flags in that game.

For posterity, we recorded every penalty for future generations.

USF: Illegal shift.
Illinois: Substitution infraction.
USF: False start.
Illinois: Offside.
USF: Personal foul (this was the first PAT attempt).
USF: Unsportsmanlike conduct.
Illinois: Unsportsmanlike conduct (Nos. 5 and 6 offset).
Illinois: Holding.
USF: Roughing the passer (targeting to boot).
Illinois: Pass interference.
Illinois: False start (those last four were on consecutive plays).
Illinois: Offside.
USF: False start.
USF: Holding.
Illinois: False start.
USF: False start (end of first quarter).
Illinois: Clipping.
USF: Unsportsmanlike conduct.
Illinois: Pass interference.
Illinois: 12 men on the field.
USF: Face mask.
Illinois: Holding.
USF: False start.
USF: False start.
USF: Delay of game (that was actually intentional to give some more breathing room for a pooch punt).
Illinois: Pass interference (end of first half).
Illinois: False start.
Illinois: Targeting (that’s two ejections now).
USF: Holding.
Illinois: Facemask.
USF: Facemask.

Now back to the game, Quinton Flowers threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns on 15 of 25 attempts. USF topped 100 yards rushing, with USF amassing 680 yards total offense to Illinois’ 354

The Bulls (3-0) beat a Big Ten opponent for the first time on a night the university honored first responders who worked the last week to help victims of the massive storm that impacted the entire state of Florida.

Illinois (2-1) stumbled in what also was a homecoming of sorts for coach Lovie Smith, who returned to the stadium where he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two seasons before being fired and accepting the challenge of rebuilding the Illini.

217

The visiting Huskies got on the board quick with NOT one, but two pick sixes. From this and as expected, Nebraska surged back in the second half and briefly took the lead early on in the fourth quarter but NIU answered and recaptured the lead with about nine minutes left. The Husks had no answer for NIU tailback Jordan Huff. The senior entered the game with 97 yards on the season. Against Nebraska he compiled 145 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries.

Bright spot, Tanner Lee threw for just shy of 300 yards but also tossed three crucial interceptions. Mikale Wilson led the way on the ground with 90 yards. BIG win for the MAC as NIU got P-A-I-D! $820k victory…..

 

1329

Michigan’s offense has to do better as they only put up 200 yards in the first half,then went on struggle to find the end zone. Quinn Nordin was the offense with three FGs. Wolverines offense did score once thanks to a 36-yard run by Karan Higdon. It was another lackluster performance by Wilton Speight as he completed 14 of 23 passes for 169 yards and no scores. Next week, PURDUE….

065

In a word, THOROUGH!!! But at least they got a check right? Rutgers paid them $350,000. One must ask yourself, “is it worth it?”

The 2017 Boilermakers are a TOTALLY different team from a season ago. Yes, they lost a close one against Louisville to start the season, but Jeff Brohm actually has Purdue looking like a competent Big Ten team. That continued on Saturday when they went on the road and crushed an SEC opponent.

The Boilers continue to use a two-quarterback system and both David Blough and Elijah Sindelar made an impact this weekend. Blough led the way completing 22 of 28 passes for 187 yards and a score. He also added a rushing touchdown. Sindelar threw for 85 yards and a touchdown of his own. Sophomore Tario Fuller led all ball-carries with 90 yards and a touchdown.

Mizzou running back Demarea Crockett entered the game with close to 300 yards through just two games, but the Boilermaker defense made him a non-factor. Crockett rushed for just 19 yards on 10 carries. WOW!!! Guess who’s up next for the Boilermakers? Harbough and Michigan Wolverines…. We will be there LIVE!!!

056

Not bad for $1.2 million payday Georgia State… Whew!

Jeff Brohm continues to do big things for Purdue and the team believing… Penn State looks like a well-oiled machine, Wisconsin’s offense is rolling, and Iowa needs to step it up with conference play kicking off.

Next week’s schedule features Penn State traveling to Iowa, Michigan State taking on the Fighting Irish, Ohio State will take on UNLV, and Purdue hosting the Wolverines. We will be LIVE in West Lafayette for the 2pm CDT kickoff.

BIG Ten from Week 3 Recap…

Week 3…. Big Ten stood strong when it needed to when they were in the national spotlight but for the others… it was ugly.

Here we go….

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men and Women via Athletics

 

Michigan State 36, Notre Dame 28

The Michigan State offense proved too much for the Irish as they had more than 500 yards led by quarterback Tyler O’Connor and the backfield duo of Gerald Holmes and L.J. Scott. Holmes rushed for 100 yards and two scores while Scott added 98 and another touchdown. O’Connor threw for 241 yards and a pair of scores with another 43 yards coming on the ground.

Even true freshman Donnie Corley got him some in the contest as he hauled in four passes for 88 yards including a second-quarter touchdown that got the Spartans on the board.

The Irish did fight back after the Spartans were up by 29 points in the third quarter. DeShone Kizer led the way for Notre Dame as the junior threw for 344 yards and four total touchdowns (2 rushing, 2 passing). Torii Hunter Jr. caught five passes for 95 yards.

Nebraska 35, Oregon 32

This game was an offensive juggernaut in which both teams combined for over 900 yards of total offense. But in the end, it was Tommy Armstrong’s 34-yard touchdown scamper late in the fourth quarter that sealed the deal for the Huskers.

Armstrong finished with 200 yards and two touchdowns on the day plus 95 on the ground.

Before the game, the Ducks paid tribute to Sam Foltz, the Cornhuskers’ fallen punter. Classy move by Mark Helfrich and Co.

Michigan 45, Colorado 28

The Buffalos flew out of the pasture on the Wolverines jumping out to a quick 21-7 lead at the end of the first quarter, but things would happen, Harbough & Co. rallied back to go up by a field goal by halftime. Then in the second half, they scored three touchdowns to seal the game.

North Dakota State 23, Iowa 21

NDS proved why they are championship caliber team knocking off Big Ten’s Iowa squad 23-21.

In the end, it was Bison kicker, Cam Pedersen, who nailed a 37-yard field goal to give the Bison the win as time expired.

The Hawkeye offense struggled all afternoon as they only obtain less than 250 yards of offense. Quarterback C.J. Beathard connected on 50% of his passes while throwing for 152 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. The usually potent ground game that put up 212 yards against Miami (OH) and just shy of 200 against Iowa State was stymied on Saturday. LeShun Daniels Jr. – Iowa’s leading rusher on the day – could only manage 29 yards on 14 carries. As a whole, the team gained 34 yards on the ground.

Wisconsin 23, Georgia State 17

With under 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Badgers found themselves trailing the 0-2 Panthers. Paul Chryst elected to shake things up at quarterback when senior Bart Houston was benched in favor of Alex Hornibrook. The redshirt freshman took over in the third quarter after a number of errant passes from Houston. The Badgers found the endzone on Hornibrook’s opening drive under center, their first of the game.

Hornibrook finished the day 8 of 12 for 122 yards with a touchdown and one interception. Houston was 10 of 18 for 91 yards. Dare Ogunbowale led the Badger ground game as the senior rushed for 65 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.

Northwestern 24, Duke 13

Finally…. The Northwestern Wilcats got a vicotry for the season as they defeated visiting Duke, 24-13.  Clayton Thorson threw for 320 yards and three touchdowns while Justin Jackson added 94 on the ground. Senior wideout Austin Carr hauled in six passed for 135 yards and a score.

Maryland 30, UCF 24 (2OT)

It took two overtimes, but the Terps were able to move to 3-0 on the season. Quarterback Perry Hills accounted for 156 yards and a touchdown, but it was true freshman Tyrrell Pigrome who scored the game-winner in double overtime. Hill exited the game with a shoulder injury and the true freshman came in for his only play of the day.

Ohio State 45, Oklahoma 24

If Ohio State wanted to make a statement, well, mission accomplished as dominated from kickoff to the final whistle. With the win, Ohio State improved to 3-0 on the young season while the loss dropped the Sooners to 1-2. Saturday was the third meeting in the series between Ohio State and Oklahoma. The Buckeyes are now 2–1 vs. Oklahoma and 19–5–1 all-time against current members of the Big 12 conference.

Game Notes
– The win extends Ohio State’s road win streak to 19 games, the longest active streak in the nation.

– Ohio State is undefeated, 19–0, in true road games under head coach Urban Meyer.

– Urban Meyer is now 34–13 in his career vs. ranked teams, including 13–3 at Ohio State.

– J.T. Barrett completed 14 of 20 passes for 152 yards and four touchdowns, all to Noah Brown. Barrett now has 55 career TD passes, passing Braxton Miller (52) and Troy Smith (54) for third place on Ohio State’s all-time list. The record is 57 by Bobby Hoying.

– Noah Brown tied the Ohio State record with four TD receptions. Dane Sanzenbacher (2010), Terry Glenn (1995) and Bob Grimes (1952) also had four in a game. Brown finished with five catches for 72 yards.

– Ohio State’s defense surrendered its fist touchdowns of the season Saturday, keeping opposing defenses out of the end zone for the first 9 quarters of the season. Ohio State is yet to allow a rushing TD on the season.

– Chris Worley led Ohio State with a career-high 10 tackles on the night.

 

Rutgers 37, New Mexico 28

Western Michigan 34, Illinois 10

Penn State 34, Temple 27

So, after a rough afternoon, things got much better for the conference as the day unfolded. Yes, Iowa fell to an FCS championship-style opponent and that’s never a good look, but Ohio State, Nebraska, and Michigan State all got it done Saturday evening.

The Buckeyes have a bye next week, but there’s two pretty interesting games to watch out for as the Badgers travel to East Lansing and the Wolverines are set to host Penn State.

BIG TEN Week 3 recap

Stunning weekend in the Big Ten…

September 15, 2013

Huskies 34,  illini helmet24 ~click here to read our recap!

 purdue-helmet31,NotreDame-helmet24

The Boilermakers came to play taking an early lead of 10-3 at the half against the Irish but couldn’t stop the visitors from scoring in the fourth quarter. The Irish scored 21 points in the fourth quarter which proved to be enough to steal a victory 31-24 on Saturday night.

Notre Dame receiver DaVaris Daniels staggered Purdue with two late touchdowns. Three plays after his second score, teammate Bennett Jackson delivered the final blow — a 34-yard interception return for a score.

“I was never worried in the sense there was a panic,” Kelly said. “I felt really confident that we were going to win the football game. We just needed to settle down a little bit.”

michigan-helmet28, Akron 24

One the winningest program in college football might have just had its worst win.

Fitzgerald Toussaint scored a go-ahead, 2-yard touchdown with 2:49 left and Michigan made a desperately needed stop on the final play to hold on for a 28-24 victory over Akron on Saturday.

It’s something about Michigan (3-0) and the Mid-American Conference, where they seem to have a few problems as they did with Appalachian State and Toledo.

nebraska121, UCLA 41

The Bruins came back from 18 points down behind the fine play of QB Brett Hundley, who threw three touchdown passes and stunned Nebraska 41-21 in front of a record crowd of 91,471 on Saturday.

The win for UCLA came six days after receiver Nick Pasquale was killed when he was struck by a vehicle while he was walking in his hometown and a day before coaches and teammates travel to San Clemente, Calif., for his memorial service.
