Week 2 has some big games on tap… Who will remain undefeated? Who will get that first win? Big Ten went 9-4 record during Week 2. Many teams have opportunities but let them slip away. Who were the BIG rinners…

44 21

Jeff Brohm and the Boliermakers jumped out to a 34-7 halftime lead over the Bobcats. Purdue put up some massive numbers offensively, 558 yards, with a nice run/pass balance; 295 through the air and 263 on the ground. David Blough averaged an absurd 18 yards per attempt as the junior went 11 of 13 for 235 yards and three scores.

17 41

 

44 41 (overtime)

Always, we mean always a good game… Picture this: it was late in the fourth quarter and things weren’t looking so hot for the Hawkeyes then Akrum Wadley scored an incredible touchdown to tie the game and sent things to overtime. Iowa State kicked a field goal but then the Hawkeyes answered with a touchdown pass to hang onto the Cy-Hawk trophy. INSTANT CLASSIC!!!!

6317

 

3614

Wilton Speight threw for 221 and two scores, but continues to struggle with errant throws. Kekoa Crawford and Grant Perry were both on the receiving end of the touchdown strikes. Ty Isaac continues to look like the best option in the backfield, rushing for 133 yards on 20 carries.

28 14

Another MAC opponent defeated by BIG TEN… what’s more incredible is the Spartans are 2-0… what a difference a year makes! Plus, Brian Lewerke has been showing off his legs this season, and he scored twice on Saturday; including a 61-yarder. L.J. Scott rushed for 86 yards and a score on 18 carries.

33 14

Trace McSorley, Saquon Barkley, and Mike Gesicki led the way for the Penn State offense. McSorley ran and threw for 229 total yards with three touchdowns and an interception; Barkley ran for 88 and a score while adding another touchdown on a nifty 46-yard catch and run; and Gesicki hauled in two touchdown catches in the first quarter of play.

13 16

 

17    34

 

41 35

Completing 21 of 25 passes for 313 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions is a hell of a game for a college quarterback, right? That was the half-time stat line for Oregon’s Justin Herbert and he’s a sophomore. WOW!

The Duck offense looked like what we’ve gotten used to seeing over the years, putting up 566 yards of total offense.

Tanner Lee wasn’t his best in Eugene. Lee completed just 19 of 41 passes for 252 yards with three touchdowns and four crucial interceptions. Tailback Tre Bryant and wideout Stanley Morgan Jr. both topped the 100-yard mark. Bryant scored once while Morgan found the end zone twice. The Huskers did rally back quite nicely after a 42-14 half-time deficit, but they fell short in the end.

3116

Talk about a BIG loss… Game was tied at the half at 3-3. In the first 30 minutes, the Buckeye defense held their own against a highly explosive Sooners’ offense, but halftime adjustments were made, and the Sooners came out on fire.

OU quarterback Baker Mayfield came through on the field as well as made his name more known as a Heisman candidate, he ended the game throwing for 386 yards and three touchdowns on 27-of-35 passing.

All momentum shifted in the fourth quarter, as the Sooners 17-13 lead turned into a 31-13 lead after a 10-yard touchdown pass from Mayfield to Trey Sermon, and a 3-yard rushing TD from Jordan Smallwood. Those two TDs were part of a 21-point unanswered scoring spree for Oklahoma, who entered the game ranked as the fifth best team in the country.

 

7    20

Defensively the Illini played tough as nails Saturday night against Western Kentucky as they knocked them off. Linebacker Julian Jones returned an interception for the game’s first touchdown. The visitors could only manage 244 yards of offense on the day. On the other side of the ball, the Illini ground game held their own behind the play of Mike Epstein, who led all rushers with 111 yards on 21 carries.

What a weekend of games for the BIG Ten! Next week’s slate brings very little excitement to the table. The Buckeyes will look to contain Army’s option attack (oof). Michigan hosts Air Force and the Nittany Lions take on mighty Georgia State. Those games should be sponsored by Red Bull.

2014 BIG Ten – Week 3

Posted on September 14, 2014. Filed under: Football, NCAA Sports | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Week 3…

September 13, 2014

BIG games this week across the board…

I think we all can clearly admit that Big Ten Football hasn’t been that good this season. Last week, they went 8-5 against what some would consider easy opponents. Now in week 3, they faced a fewer tougher opponents. Overall, the league played a lot better but same results going 4-7.

 Washington 44, Illinois 19

The Fighting Illini barely won during the first two weeks, well, that caught up with them during week 3 as Washington dominated them all afternoon.

Washington led 21-3 at the end of the first quarter and 38-12 at the half, thanks in part to two defensive touchdowns from Shaq Thompson. Illinois played a sloppy, miserable game they had no chance of winning. Don’t interrupt Illinois head coach Tim Beckman’s delusions by telling him that, though.

———

 Penn State 13, Rutgers 10

Conference play kicked off with Penn State-Rutgers, in Rutgers’ first-ever Big Ten game. The Scarlet Knights’ much-maligned defense had a strong performance, but Gary Nova’s antics cost them the game.

The Rutgers defense asserted its will from the get-go, shutting out Penn State for the first half. After scraping out a couple field goals in the third and fourth quarter to pull within 10-6, Christian Hackenberg led PSU on a beautiful two-minute drill to take the lead. In response, Nova threw his fifth interception of the game.

It was a rough introduction to the Big Ten for Rutgers

———-

 West Virginia 40, Maryland 37

Heartbreak type of game here….

West Virginia jumped out to a 28-6 lead, but Maryland came back with a combination of red zone defense stances and plays from C.J. Brown and Stefon Diggs. Late in the fourth quarter, Maryland had a punt return from Will Likely to tie the score, and then allowed West Virginia to drive for the game-winning field goal.

———-
Notre Dame 30, Purdue 14

In the battle of Indiana… well, it’s still all about the Irish as they remain perfect.

Purdue was feisty in the first half, grabbing a 14-10 lead in the second quarter and ceding little ground on defense. But the Boilermakers allowed a last-minute touchdown before the half, and they couldn’t string together an offensive drive in the second half until it was too late.

The talent disparity was too great as the Fighting Irish beat the Boilermakers in Indianapolis.

——–
 Bowling Green 45, Indiana 42

The Big Ten’s struggles with the MAC continues as Indiana lost a winnable game to Bowling Green. This game went back-and-forth from the start as each team traded jabs, but in the end, the Hooisers’ defense couldn’t prevent an 88-yard touchdown drive in two minutes, giving up the winning score with nine seconds to go.

———-
 Michigan 34, Miami (Ohio) 10

Michigan needed this win more than a fat kid needs recess, as they suffered an embrassing loss last week at the hands of Notre Dame. So, this was the perfect opponent especially since Miami (Ohio) entered the contest on an 18-game losing streak.

The Wolverines got out to a quick 10-0 lead, but three turnovers in the second quarter let Miami tie the game. But athletic Derrick Green had an outstanding shownig for the Wolverines, rushing for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and the Michigan defense smothered Miami. In the end, this was a well-needed win for Michigan and the Big Ten.

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.
