Penn State just held off Syracuse 23-17. Iowa doing their best to give away the Northern Illinois game right now.
Late Games OPEN THREAD
Is there such a thing as "Hawkeye No!"? Because I think that interception qualifies.
...seconds. NIU just kicked a FG to go up on Iowa after a terrible Iowa INT.
Iowa is a play or two away from being the prohibitive favorite for TWIS in a few days...
...and NIU's FG is good, 30-27 Huskies with 4 seconds to go.
Iowa and Indiana are trading places.
Man we are bad this year.
Well within the error bar.
And Iowa also lost to CMU last year.
Love the fact that Ferentz is making 3+ mil a year for the job he has done lately.
half of that is going to need to go to anti-depressants though
This is the fourth time Ferentz has lost to a MAC school. Two losses to Western, one to Central and now Northern Illinois.
Huskies were impressive though. That program has really turned around. Ten years ago, they were putting up 10 loss seasons.
From the other thread, thanks to Mr. Yost.
Wazzou up on Auburn early... hope that holds up.
Oregon is covering the 59-point spread, 66-3 over Nicholls St.
Eastern Washington leads #25 Oregon St. 29-17 just before half.
Herd show Monday or Tuesday will be more painful than usual if the Eastern Washington lead holds
Feels like Logan Thomas has been at VT forever....
I would've sworn Logan Thomas was on his way to being a first round pick. Sure he had flaws, but he was a sophomore with a lot of projection.
Now....he's a senior with a lot of projection. And generally speaking appears to be a worse quarterback.
What was the score of the Bama game last year at this point?
It was 31-7 at Halftime
Damn that hurts even now.
Thomas is 1 for his last 14 now? Ugh. Doesn't help when his receivers are dropping perfectly thrown deep passes, though. Alabama's O hasn't been that good tonight, two special teams TDs. All that departed talent on the O-line isn't easy to replace, even for them.
Oregon State is losing to FCS #4 Eastern Washington 29-17 at halftime.
And yay EMU! They're beating Howard right now and that game is on ESPN3.
LOL @ at the cheaters from UK losing to WKU right now.
Why are they cheaters again?
WKU where Petrino wound up?
- Cincinnati beats Purdue 42-7
- Illinois struggled against FCS Illinois State
- Iowa loses to Northern Illinois
- Minnesota struggled with UNLV and MSU struggles with WMU - both opponents are in the 90+ range
- and Indiana gave us 35 pts to FCS Indiana State
Even OSU gave up 20 to UB
Granted, the level of competition wasn't great, but IU scored 70+. With that many possessions in the game, giving up 35 isn't horrible (more than doubled them up anyway).
Also, MN won their game pretty handily after a shakey start. Purdue and Illinois are the new IU and Minnesota.
I think the B1G is going to be pretty interesting this year, and I like our chances.
Looking forward to seeing how Nebraska and Northwestern look tonight.
Ya, but Indiana scored a shitload. I wouldn't include them in this list
Man the big 10 conference sucks so much. No other conferences ever lose games to FCS opponents or struggle with mid majors!! This is embarrassing.
If it makes any difference the AAC or whatever suck too.
Yeah, I mean it's not like teams from the powerful SEC or all powerful Pac 12 ever get tested by FCS or mid majors (teams such as Kentucky, Mizzou, Texas A&M, Utah, and Oregon State). I forgot the unstoppable Big 12 juggernauts of West Virginia, Kansas State, and Trxas Tech too
Relax. Kansas State just loss to NDSU and Va Tech lost to James Madison a few years ago. I'm sick of all the Big Ten bashing. If you hate the conference so much go root for teams in others conferences.
I think you need to check your sarcasm meter.
Such is the case when you hook yourself to the flaming trainwreck that is Ron English. EMU is losing 24-13 to some guy named Howard Bison.
Damn don't those southern girls get dressed up for a football game. Mmm, mmm, mmm. Debutantes>>>>hipsters.
Holy hell what an eloborate stadium entrance for Clemson..
Agreed, traditions like that are part of what makes college football great. Never seen the Clemson entrance before.
I've seen the run from the rock forward but this was the first time they showed behind the scenes of how the players got there. It is a very impressive entrance - I think the Colorado one is also cool with the Buffalo running on the field. And Michigan of course. :)
That was cool. That's why I'm a CFB fan.
Stat of the minute - Alabama has managed to accumulate 168 yards of offense and they are only averaging about 3.6 yards per offensive play, yet they are up by 25. Virginia Tech has more yards and only 10 points to show for it.
Yeah I think Bama has a punt return TD, kick return TD and an interception return TD. I've been peeking in on their game and their O hasn't looked very good at all (mostly O line growing pains).
NEB goes down 7-0 to Wyoming.
Clemson sure knows how to make an entrance. I'll give them that.
I always like a dominant performance.
Feels like the old days. Michigan should stomp teams like this!
The defense was nice.
It felt like a lot of depth.
Is it ever really wrong to discuss Michigan football?
1st and Goal from the 3; 4:32 left in Q3.
