Next up: Rutgers
Temple led Navy by 20 points with 13:41 to play in the fourth quarter. And lost. In overtime. This is the third loss on the final play of the game for Temple, if Al Golden isn't on suicide watch… well, he should be. Erstwhile Penn State recruit and Owl starting QB Adam DiMichele completed 21 of his 28 passes for 340 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. But he lost. In overtime.
Next up: Kent State Golden Flashes
Iowa trailed Illinois the entire game until 2:46 of the fourth quarter when RB Shonn Greene tied the score at 24 with a 5-yard touchdown run. But Juice Williams, erratic for most of the game, put together the best drive of day covering twelve plays and 51 yards in 2:22 that ended in a 46-yard field goal for the victory. The Fighting Zookers' defense held Greene in check until the fourth quarter as Illinois was outrushed 138 to 60.
Next up: Western Michigan
Against Michigan's defense Purdue's third string quarterback who was a second string running back passed for 266 yards and 3 touchdowns, the last coming with 26 seconds left on a hook-and-lateral from Greg Orton to Desmond Tardy…
Excuse me for a minute.
Next up: Michigan State
The Badger defense shut down Javon Ringer and two Wisconsin running backs had over 100 yards but a 44-yard field goal with 7 seconds left gave Michigan State a 25-24 victory. Wisconsin led the entire game and outgained Michigan State 430 to 312 but the Spartans would not go away.
