Around the Big Ten – Week Three

The Big Ten had a banner day on Saturday; there was something for everyone. Our Nittany Lions pitched a shut out, games were won on blocked kicks and fake kicks, and a Big Ten quarterback not named Pryor kept his Heisman campaign rolling. If only the early hours of Sunday were as kind to coaches and teams alike.

SPARTY ON! Fake field goal seals win for Michigan State over Notre Dame in overtime, 34-31

Iowa falls in the desert to Arizona, 34-27
Ranked Big Ten teams have not beaten a ranked Pac-10 team since 1990 (eight meetings). Even the New Kids on the Block have made a comeback since then.

Pryor keeps racking up stats as Ohio State wins the State of Uselessness Bowl
Ohio State has not lost a game to another team from the state of Ohio since 1921. Even Betty White has made a comeback since then.

Dashing Denard leads Michigan to thrilling victory over FCS team Massachusetts, 42-37

Northwestern, Purdue, Indiana and Illinois all grab their cupcake wins
Thankfully there’s only one more week for these.
