  • No. 25 Wisconsin rolls past Purdue 34-16 Nov 8, 2014 7:42 PM
    For one half Saturday, Joel Stave looked like the quarterback who nearly led Wisconsin to last year’s Big Ten title game. Running back Melvin Gordon savored the moment. With the Heisman Trophy candidate rushing for 205 yards and one touchdown, and Stave throwing for a season best 219 yards and two touchdowns, No 25. Wisconsin pulled away from Purdue 34-16 and improved its chances to chase yet another conference championship.

     
  • Penn St. ends 4-game skid 13-7 over Indiana Nov 8, 2014 7:42 PM
    Penn State has been searching for ways to end a midseason slump. The Nittany Lions’ defense stepped up. Sam Ficken did, too. Ficken kicked a 27-yard go-ahead field goal and Penn State defeated Indiana 13-7 to snap a four-game skid. Ficken’s kick gave Penn State a 10-7 lead which he later extended with a 28-yard field goal with under a minute to play.

     
  • Williams, Minnesota rip Iowa 51-14, reclaim pig Nov 8, 2014 7:42 PM
    The Minnesota players swarmed the Iowa sideline with a group sprint as soon as the last second was gone. Humiliated by the Hawkeyes the last two years, the Gophers were giddy about grabbing the bronze pig again. They had plenty of time to plot out that race for repossession, too.

  • Michigan hangs on to beat Northwestern 10-9 Nov 8, 2014 7:26 PM
    De’Veon Smith ran for a career-high 121 yards and a touchdown, and Michigan beat Northwestern 10-9 Saturday after the Wildcats’ Trevor Siemian slipped attempting a two-point conversion at the end of the game. Siemian had just connected with Tony Jones in the left corner of the end zone on a 3-yard pass to make it a one-point game with three seconds left. Rather than try for the tie, Northwestern went for the win. That plan backfired when Siemian slipped while dropping back as Michigan’s Frank Clark closed in on him.

  • Playoff hopes on line for Spartans, Buckeyes Nov 7, 2014 5:45 PM
    EAST LANSING, Mich. — Mark Dantonio and Urban Meyer downplayed the rivalry between Michigan State and Ohio State this week. Michigan, the coaches insisted, is the main rival for both. While that’s certainly true, the stakes of Saturday night’s game between the No. 7 Spartans and No. 13 Buckeyes speak for themselves. “To say this is a rivalry game, that would diminish the rivalry that’s been here for 100 years,” Meyer said. “This is a great game because it’s two teams battling for first place.” First place in the Big Ten’s East Division — and a possible spot in college football’s new four-team playoff. That’s what’s on the line, and there’s no need for extra incentive or ill will. The rivalry talk has picked up because these same teams met in the Big Ten title game last year and they’ve dominated the conference the last few seasons. Michigan State has not lost to a Big Ten team since 2012. The Buckeyes are 20-0 in conference during the regular season under Meyer, but their loss to the Spartans in that 2013 title game stands out. There’s a healthy respect between the two programs — with a hint of an enemy-of-my-enemy-is-my-friend sentiment. Dantonio didn’t dispute Meyer’s contention that Michigan is Ohio State’s main rival. He went a step further by saying Michigan State’s rivals are Michigan and Notre Dame. The Spartans don’t play the Irish this year. “There are certain football teams that you start to begin to take shape as a rivalry as you play them,” Dantonio said. “I think it goes back and forth, but I think you need to have a very long history.” Michigan State (7-1, 4-0) is No. 8 in the latest ranking from college football’s playoff committee, and a victory this weekend is necessary if the Spartans want to remain in serious consideration. Ohio State (7-1, 4-0) has even more ground to make up at No. 14, but a road victory over Michigan State would be a start. Last year, it was the Spartans who denied the Buckeyes a spot in the BCS championship game by beating them for the Big Ten title. This week’s rematch also figures to eliminate the loser. Who knows? A few more matchups of this magnitude, and maybe Michigan State vs. Ohio State really will become a major rivalry. Here are a few things to watch during this Big Ten showdown: BARRETT’S POISE: Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has done a nice job replacing injured quarterback Braxton Miller for Ohio State, but this will be a major test. Miller completed only eight passes in last season’s loss to the Spartans — a game in which Ohio State actually ran the ball quite well. BALANCE: Michigan State was carried by its defense for much of last year, but that had changed by the time the Spartans played Ohio State. Michigan State won that game 34-24, and both the Spartans and Buckeyes are averaging over 45 points a game this season. With quarterback Connor Cook, running back Jeremy Langford and wide receiver Tony Lippett, Michigan State has plenty of options offensively. PASS RUSHERS: The Spartans’ defensive line includes standouts Shilique Calhoun and Marcus Rush. Ohio State’s front is anchored by Joey Bosa, who leads the Big Ten with 14 1/2 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. UNDERDOGS: Ohio State is in an unusual position, with the Spartans favored by about a field goal in the days leading up to the game. The scenario is a bit different from last year, when the Buckeyes took a 24-game winning streak into the league title game against Michigan State. Ohio State’s lone defeat this year — at home against Virginia Tech in September — was fairly surprising. A loss this weekend would not be a shock, but how tough will the Buckeyes be as slight underdogs? THE WEATHER: Michigan State has never played a November night game at Spartan Stadium, but that will change on Saturday. Big Ten teams are used to cold weather, rain and even snow at this time of year, but the elements could be even tougher after dark.

     
  • Aurora native, UConn guard: ‘Basketball saved my life’ Nov 7, 2014 5:39 PM
    Ryan Boatright doesn’t see basketball as a game. Since he was a 13-year-old prodigy and gave a verbal commitment to USC, the undersized guard from Aurora with the impressive leaping ability has understood that the sport was going to give him an opportunity that no other man in his family had — to get a college education and escape the streets of Chicago. “Basketball saved my life,” said the now 21-year-old Boatright.

     
  • Irish, Sun Devils set for epic showdown Nov 7, 2014 5:38 PM

The Irish and Sun Devils are both among a glut of one-loss teams fighting to get into the College Football Playoff, firmly in the top 10 of the rankings with five weeks until the final field of four is set. Saturday’s game at Sun Devil Stadium will send them in opposite directions.

     
  • Michigan, Northwestern trying to hang on Nov 7, 2014 5:27 PM
    [No Paragraph Style]NewsTheir bowl hopes hanging by a thread and their seasons slipping away, Michigan and Northwestern have little room left for error. That margin is just about goThe Wolverines and the Wildcats simply can’t afford a letdown when they meet Saturday if they want to make something of their seasons.

Both the men’s and women’s teams come into the race atop the NJCAA Division III polls.
