Is the Indy Stage Ready?
It wasn’t the nicest performance for the Buckeyes yesterday. But in a weird season of madness, sometimes all you have to do is be content with beating a top 10 opponent and hope that the issues can be fixed. These problems obviously start with a defensive backcourt that Michael Penix Jr. . and the passing Hoosier attack.
Then there is the obviously good news. Ohio State sits 4-0 into the season and has complete control of the East Division. Ryan Day still has one of the best offenses in the country despite it being far from flawless against the Hoosiers.

Elsewhere in the country, Alabama has done its usual thing against an inferior SEC opponent, Luke Fickell continued his stellar season, and another Big Ten program now appears to be the clear favorite in the West.
It started with a fun Friday night in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, an official mistake likely cost Purdue a win. Jeff Brohm’s roster had dropped to three by less than a minute when Jack Plummer linked up with Payne Durham for a 19-yard touchdown hit. The crew in office, however, had other plans when Durham was flagged for what may be the worst offensive pass-to-interference call I have ever seen. Plummer was picked up at the next game to end the game.
Saw this without knowing the details and thought this was a terrible pass-interference call. Then I found out it was an offensive pass-interference call and I am speechless.
Purdue should be spicy. One of the worst phone calls I’ve ever seen. image. Twitter. com / kYShEz2Lh4
Tanner Morgan bonded for 264 yards on 15 of 22 passes, but it was the gopher floor game that took the overall rating. Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 102 yards and three points while Cam Wiley and Seth Green also found the end zone. Chris Autman-Bell was the game’s lead receiver with 129 yards at five receptions.
I find college football a lot more enjoyable when Rondale Moore is a part of it. The Boilermaker superstar hit 40 yards on his first run of the season and topped it off with a quick touchdown. He caught 15 passes for 116 yards and added another 20 that raced on the floor with the score. Plummer performed brilliantly as he hit 35 of 42 passes for 367 yards, three touchdowns and the interception that shouldn’t have been. David Bell took eight passes for 104 yards and a couple of points.
I give Jeff Brohm important props for the way he handled the media session after the game. He admitted that he didn’t like the call but did so with the class. Personally? I would still have had a tantrum back then.
Pat Fitzgerald and the wildcats now appear to be on a collision course with the horse chestnuts. Behind a defense that forced five turnovers, Northwestern defeated the Badgers in a game for West Division supremacy.
The ground attack did next to nothing, but Peyton Ramsey and the passing game were good enough to score at least a few touchdowns. Ramsey threw the two points only 203 yards, while Wildcat Rushers only got 24 yards on 23 attempts against a solid Badger defense. Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman was the game’s leading receiver with four catches for 95 yards and one score. Safety for Redshirt Newbies Brandon Joseph recorded two interceptions.
Grahem Mertz has returned to earth after his near-perfect debut against Illinois. Mertz hit only 23 of 41 passes for 230 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions. He also coughed the soccer ball on a striped sack. The real newcomer Jalen Berger was solid again with 93 yards over 15 runs. 2020 co-signer Chimere Dike received a 49 yard hit.
Pat Fitzgerald has two seasons of 10 wins in Northwestern, five seasons of 9 wins and after beating Wisconsin, the Wildcats are 5-0 today and are on their way to the Big Ten title game. Fitzgerald is the best college football coach who never gets the honor of being as good as him
It was a triple overtime thriller on Piscataway last night when the Wolverines managed to screech off the Knights. The kickers each missed in the first extra time, both teams scored touchdowns in the second, and it was Michigan that had a touchdown in the third extra time of the game. Rutgers didn’t respond when a pass from Noah Cathedral was intercepted in the end zone.
I have no idea why this was the case, but Joe Milton started again for the Wolverines last night. It was 17-0 for Rutgers in the second quarter when Cade McNamara finally took over, and things have been better for Michigan after that. McNamara went 27 of 36 for 260 yards with a total of five touchdowns. Hassan Haskins led all backs with 112 yards and one score. Cornelius Johnson took five passes for 105 and two touchdowns. Giles Jackson helped start the second half with a 95 yard kick return score.
Rutgers pitched nearly 500 yards against Michigan, with 381 of those yards coming through the air. Vedral threw three touchdowns and an interception. Shameen Jones and Bo Melton have crossed the century mark against a porous UM secondary. Jones finished the night seven catches for 127 yards. Melton recorded seven for 109 and one score. Schiano continues to be the master of trickery as Rutgers again used some of them to his advantage.
This was fun to watch, even if the last Scarlet Knight ride turned out to be a jerk. It will also not restore fan base confidence in the Jim Harbaugh regime. Some are now asking for Charlie Weis to be the next boss in Ann Arbor. Yikes.
James Franklin’s team is now sitting at 0-5 and having all sorts of problems. None of Penn State’s quarterbacks are good, but they seem to be the only threat in the game right now. And now the defense only surrendered 40 points to Iowa. We thank Kirk Ferentz and his team for making it to Happy Valley.
Spencer Petras threw for 186 yards and really didn’t have to do much. The ground game found the end zone four times and touchdown No.. 5 came courtesy of 305-pound tackle Daviyon Nixon Pick-Sixing Sean Clifford (71 yards!). Mekhi Sargent was the leading player of the game with 101 yards and two points. The Hawkeye Defense forced four turnovers in the afternoon.
Big boys shouldn’t be able to run like that. @DaviyonNixon is not your typical tall guy. # B1GStandout @ AutoOwnersIns picture. Twitter. com / sTb63InYcR
Will Levis started at the center and actually led Penn State to a touchdown on its second run. Levis pitched for 106 and ran for 34 before eventually being pulled in favor of Clifford. Getting into the game late in the third round, Clifford made a spark when he teamed up with Brenton Strange and Jahan Dotson to bring the game to 31-21. He also threw a couple of interceptions that helped the Hawkeyes get this out of range. Nittany Lion Running Backs ran for a putrid 15 yards on 14 stretches.
We’ll keep this short and sweet. Nick Saban destroyed Kentucky in Tuscaloosa yesterday. Saban’s defense was strong when the Wildcats finished at just 179 yards. Mac Jones threw for 230 yards and two points before the tide pulled its starter. The bama floor game lasted 226 yards and five touchdowns, while the average averaged nearly six per attempt.
Najee Harris did his thing with 83 yards and two points. A few touted real newbies also made an impression. Quarterback Bryce Young threw his first career touchdown pass and Jase McClellan was the leading player of the game with 99 yards and one score. Do you remember when the Jordan Battle was held in the state of Ohio? He added a nifty range of 45 yards to help the tide retreat in the third quarter.
Bedlam doesn’t compare to The Game or Iron Bowl, but it’s a rivalry I usually enjoy. This year’s edition wasn’t particularly tight as there wasn’t much Mike Gundy and the Cowboys could do at Norman. In fact, the Sooners doubled their rival’s mileage by 492 to 246. Not a great show for the No.. 14 team.
When I switched this on, it was already 21: 0 in the first quarter. Spencer Rattler finished day 17 of 24 for 301 yards and four touchdowns. Rhamondre Stevenson was the lead player of the game with 141 yards over 26 runs, while Rattler added another score with his legs. Theo Wease received two touchdown strikes.
The cowboy offense wasn’t as good as what we’re used to (no. 51 national), but this was quite a disconcerting achievement. Spencer Sanders threw only 97 yards with an interception. Chuba Hubbard couldn’t do much with 44 yards over eight runs. Star wideout Tylan Wallace was also kept in check at just 68 yards on four catches.
Many people had the Bearcats in Orlando on alert. The knights came with the no. 1 offense, while Cincinnati is at No.. 10 in total defense. Luke Fickell held UCF at 359 yards, which is 260 less than his season average. Desmond Ridder and the offense carried on and the Bearcats took an 8-0 lead.
Ridder made 395 yards and four touchdowns against the Knights. Josh Whyle caught five passes for 81 yards and one score. Springfield’s close end Leonard Taylor scored six for 76 and his own touchdown. Cole Smith increased the rating with three field goals. The Bearcats were 14-3 behind at the start of the second quarter before charging back.
UCF was led by quarterback Dillon Gabriel and his 243 passes and three points. Marlon Williams was his favorite target with eight catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns. Jaylon Robinson added a 10-yard touchdown late in the fourth when the Knights were in comeback mode.
The no. 7 Gators were a bit scared but beat Vanderbilt 38-17. Kyle Trask remains in the middle of the Heisman race with another 383 yards and three points. No. 13 Georgia beat Mississippi State in Athens and may have finally found a quarterback. JT Daniels threw over 400 yards with four touchdowns in a 31-24 win. I’m not entirely sure why it took so long for the USC transfer to get its shot.
No. 11 Oregon survived a close game at home against a UCLA team that did without quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Tyler Shough threw for 334 yards with three points, while Devon Williams caught six for 123 and a touchdown. UCLA’s Demetric Felton was the leading player of the game with 167 yards, two points over 34 carry.
No. 8 BYU and no. 15 Coastal Carolina both remain unbeaten. The Cougars had no problem making the move to 9-0 after crushing North Alabama 66-14. The Chanticleers won 34-23 over a good Appalachian State team. The same cannot be said of Hugh Freeze’s Flames. No. 21 Liberty lost their first game on the road in NC State yesterday. The wolf pack went 6: 3 with a 15:14 home win.
What is the outlook for next week? The state of Ohio is traveling to Illinois and all eyes will be on Kerry Coombs in this case. Indiana is expected to be home to Maryland, provided the Terps are finally allowed to play. Northwestern makes its way to East Lansing and the Wolverines will greet the Nittany Lions. It’s crazy to think that the Michigan / PSU matchup includes two teams that are 2-8 in the season together.
If you’re looking nationally, there are a few good ones to look out for. It feels a little strange that the Iron Bowl is already happening, but that’s probably just because The Game still seems so far away. The Longhorns will host the cyclones, Ed Orgeron will travel to Aggieland and Notre Dame will travel to Chapel Hill.
Are the Irish on their guard against UNC? Sam Howell scored nearly 600 yards attack and seven points in his last game against Wake Forest. This could be Brian Kelly’s last real test before a rematch with Clemson.
Who do you have at the end of the Big Ten? Penn State is the only answer, right?
