Team of the Week: Penn State – Throughout all the drama that is going on in State College, these players have had nothing to do with it. They had an emotional last game at home the week prior vs Nebraska and came up short. This weekend they went into the Shoe and kept their Big Ten Championship Game hopes alive with a win over the Buckeyes in what is probably the last Columbus see’s of Luke Fickell as Head Coach. Penn State now heads to Wisconsin for a Big Ten Semifinal game with the Badgers. The winner heads to Indianapolis.
Helmet Sticker: Marvin McNutt : WR : Iowa – the converted quarterback is rewriting Hawkeye record books. With his 9 catch 151 yards and 2 scores Marvin is the all time single season leader in touchdowns. Next week vs Nebraska he has a chance to become the all time leader in receptions for a career and season. He’s also making NFL scouts drool!
Game of the Week: Penn State 20 – Ohio State 14 : As Ole JR would say it was a sloberknocker. All the points were scored in the First half. Penn State kept its hopes for a Big Ten Championship alive with the win, and now heads to Madison for a show down with the Badgers for the Leaders division title.
Big Ten Take Away: Monte Ball is taking a moniker away from Cris Carter. All Ball does is SCORE. 30 touchdowns this year! Dude isn’t getting a lot of Heisman love but should be.
Jimmy John’s Big Ten Challenge
Chad (66-24) Matt (65-25) Kyle (64-26)
National Take Away: Bill Hancock must have his offices in SEC country because its an SEC world. Iowa State started the shocking weekend with a win over #2 Oklahoma State in OT. Baylor knocked off Oklahoma behind the arm and legs of Robert Griffin III. If that wasn’t enough USC upset Oregon in Autzen and Clemson got embarrassed by Clemson. What it means now is the top 3 teams in the BCS are from the SEC…WEST!
