Bret Bielema led his Illinois team to a stunning win at Penn State

The Big Ten recap: Illinois football season destroys Pennsylvania, Michigan remains undefeated and Wisconsin rediscovers its groove once again

We are gathered here today to celebrate the fall of Clemson.

with tigers 27-17 loss at No. 23 House Saturday, Dabo Swinney suffered two conference losses before November for the first time in more than a decade, and “Is this the end of the Clemson dynasty?The pieces are already written.

I’m definitely here for that.

Let’s shed light on this L juice, shall we:

dang. I hate seeing this team lose their cool. and what is that? Six pitch?

Clemson now sits 4-3 on the season. In five games played against FBS, the Tigers have only managed the top 20 once, and that’s when they took a 21 in a 27-21 loss at North Carolina.

Dabo always said he would quit if college players were compensated. I am glad to see that he is a man of his word.

But back to really why we’re here: Michigan went 7-0, Illinois shocked everyone on Earth, Purdue stayed in the top 25 shortlisted, and Minnesota controlled its own destiny? Let’s go to it.

I’ve spent the past seven weeks shining in the Big Ten, especially the Big Ten East. What do I get for that? Penn State, one corner of the East, lost nine more games, uh, whatever the opposite of excitement, to what I thought was the worst Power 5 team in the nation, 20-18.

This is not a typo. That game, thanks to a new NCAA rule that forces teams to exchange effective penalty shootouts — alternating two points conversion — once the game reached third overtime, it deepened nine points and still hit the bottom, with a meager 38 points scored between Illinois and Pennsylvania. .

The game went into the books as the longest in NCAA history — in terms of overtime, at least — and it was just as bad as it sounds. Ha:

NSFW

So how did we get there?

Penn State, playing with Great retro end zones for homecomingQuarterback Sean Clifford welcomed back from the injury that knocked him out of the Iowa game two weeks ago, and his 42-yard throw to KeAndre Lambert-Smith helped the Nittany Lions lead 10-0 in the first half.

But then, Illinois went to work the land.

Behind Chase Brown’s 223rd and Joshua McCray’s 142nd, Eleni dash for an astonishing 357 yards in the afternoon, turning the entire Penn State defense on the line of scrimmage. It’s been a lot of this, and it worked.

I mean, Illinois won that game by 38 yards. thirty eight!

Meanwhile, Clifford, who wasn’t at 100% yet, apparently completed just 19 of 34 for 165 yards (and took four sacks), and the ground game Penn State, who has struggled all season, managed 62 yards on 29 buggies.

However, Penn State had several chances to win the match!

After Penn State hit a field goal in the first overtime, Jackwan Bricker dropped an interception for the ensuing Illinois possession. In the third overtime, Penn State contacted a quarterback that Clifford dropped single-handedly on the two. In the fourth overtime, the Nittany Lions knocked out the Illinois quarterback, Artur Sitkowski. But unfortunately …

Honestly, if I were a Penn State fan, I would have thought about never watching football again this season. That’s how bad this loss was for the Nitani Lions.

Days after Illinois coach Brett Bilima He threw all his list under the bus, the Illini took their first road win against a ranked team in 14 years (and I certainly wouldn’t be the one to remind you, dear reader, of this game).

Newly caught playing George Jewett Cup, named after a man who was smart enough to move from Michigan to Northwestern, a better academic institution, the #6 Wolverines got off a slow start in Wild cat dust, 33-7.

The Wolverines are 7-0 aged for the first time since 2016, and they’ve gotten there by playing sound, if not elite football, again.

Blake Corum rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns, and fellow battery, Hassan Haskins, made 110 yards and two touchdowns like his own as they aided the country’s No. 6 attack at 294 yards to the ground.

Michigan quarterback Kid McNamara went for 20 of 27, albeit for only 129 yards, but Wolverine’s defense held Northwest Northwest to 233 yards—with the Wildcats capturing 75 of those yards in Evan Hall’s six-year run in the second quarter.

The Wolverines won 15th in 17 attempts against Northwestern and are heading to a huge game in East Lansing next weekend, with Michigan and Michigan both making the top 10 for the game for the first time since 1964.

Is this Michigan team likable somehow? of course not:

Well, I hope you enjoyed your time as a first seeded team in 14 years, Bordeaux.

after a week Screaming beer in the field Beating the undefeated Iowa State at Kennick Stadium, the No. 25 Boilers were Wisconsin, 30-13, burned him at home.

This was actually pegged at 13 in the half, but Purdue’s five turnovers – three of which were interceptions by quarterback Aidan O’Connell’s arm – spelled death. Well, that, Wisconsin six-bags, the -13-yard rushing Purdue turned, and the fact that David Bell, who set Iowa on fire last week, spent the majority of the game unseen, and well, you’ve got a point.

Wisconsin rushed for 290 yards, with Chez Mellusi chipping in at 149 and landing and landing Braelon Allen for 140 yards and two touchdowns on 12 cars.

On the other side of the ball, can we give it up to quarterback Leo Chenal? Nine saves, 5.5 of which are for a loss, and 3.5 sacks is the hell of the age.

The running and defense game was so strong that quarterback Graham Mertz finished 5 of 8 for 52 yards, which was perfectly fine! This was the fourth game in a row that Mertz completed ten passes or fewer, and somehow Wisconsin won three of those games.

With the win, Wisconsin snapped an eight-game losing streak against seeded opponents and headed to Iowa City next weekend, where they’ll get another chance as the W.

Are you ready to say, “Minnesota is the champion of Big Ten West?”

I know it sounds weird as hell, especially if you remember the gopher’s house loss in Week 4 to the losing 30-point Bowling Green.

But here we are after Minnesota 34-16 win over MarylandThese gophers are associated with commanding the oath with control over the fate of the Big Ten.

With new linebackers Ky Thomas and Mar’Keise Irving emerging as the fourth and fifth Gopher to fall behind to the top 100 yards in a game this season – Minnesota become the second Big Ten team to have five defenses to do so in a campaign – PJ Fleck’s team rolled to a 326 rushing yard and a comfortable win over The Maryland team suddenly tottered.

Minnesota led 17-3 in the first half and never looked back, leading Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa to 189 yards through the air to win his third consecutive Big Ten game.

And just look at this remaining schedule: Northwestern (10/30), Illinois (11/6), suddenly human Iowa (11/13), Indiana (11/20), and Wisconsin at home to finish the season on November 27 . Does the Gopher really want to hold the hand of Ohio State again in Indianapolis? Maybe!

the following: Minnesota (5-2) in the northwest (3-4); Maryland (4-3) – Indiana (2-5)


with Ohio Rolling everyone on its way These days, they’re comfortable with the top team in this week’s group of strength rankings. I don’t see anyone in the Buckeyes’ remaining table capable of playing within two rounds of this team.

Sure, I’m Homer, but I’m also a realist, and this Ohio State team shoots all cylinders.

Michigan and Michigan hold the next two spots in the rankings and meet in East Lansing in six days. This must be a hell of a game and deserves your attention in the early afternoon.

Iowa is back in fourth, with Minnesota, and Minnesota once again controlling its destiny, up to No. 5.

Pennsylvania drops to six after that embarrassing loss to Illinois, while Wisconsin, Nebraska, Purdue and Maryland top the top ten.

I didn’t want to knock Illinois from the bottom of the rankings, but when you go to State College and rush to get 350+ I have to give you a little love, despite how bad Illini has looked this season and how personally I don’t like the guy who’s been coaching this team .
