The Week 7 Opponent Recap

Collecting the scores and highlights from IU's past and future opponents

Joe Robbins

From the non-con opponents:

South Dakota 17, Indiana State 14: The Sycamores continue their yearlong slide and chalk up their second MVC loss on the year. Despite forcing 4 turnovers, Indiana State just couldn't get points on the board, gaining less than 200 total yards on the day. Indiana State falls to 1-5 on the year.

Duke 35, Navy 7: The Midshipmen gave up nearly 300 yards passing to the Blue Devils, and allowed recently recovered Duke quarterback Anthony Boone to throw 3 touchdown passes in a Duke romp over Navy. Navy's lone touchdown was a 7 yard Darius Staten rush that tied the game at 7 in the second quarter. The Mids fall to 3-2 for the season.

Mississippi State 21, Bowling Green 20: The Falcons kept it close, but were unable to wrest the lead or the game away from the Bulldogs. Bowling Green put up nearly 400 yards on the Mississippi State defense, but their own defense gave up over 400, including a 75 yard touchdown run in the first quarter to Dak Prescott. BGSU is now 5-2 in 2013.

#25 Missouri 41, #7 Georgia 26: Missouri rode a 21 point 2nd quarter explosion to a big upset in Athens over the Bulldogs. Georgia was hampered by many injuries to important players, including star running back Todd Gurley, and only held the lead for about 3 minutes in the first quarter.They came back to within two points late, but the Tigers tacked on a pair of 4th quarter touchdowns to seal the victory, and improve to 6-0 on the season.

And from the rest of the B1G (Minnesota, Illinois, and Ohio State were off this week):

Nebraska 44, Purdue 7: The Boilers scored their lone touchdown late in the 4th quarter, long after the Cornhuskers had demolished them. Nebraska's offense went for 435 yards, while Purdue could only muster 216 yards, 184 of which were through the air. The Huskers were also 2-2 on 4th down conversions. Purdue drops to 1-5 (0-2).

Wisconsin 35, #19 Northwestern 6: The Badgers steamrolled the Wildcats, rolling up 527 yards of offense, and allowing only two first half field goals to Northwestern. Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon ran for 172 yards, 71 of which came on a single touchdown run. Northwestern was 2-17 on 3rd down. Wisconsin improves to 4-2 (2-1).

Penn State 43, #18 Michigan 40: In a four overtime thriller, the Nittany Lions overcame their loss to Indiana last week and took down another ranked team in Happy Valley. Despite going 4 overtimes, the two teams combined for under 800 yards of total offense. Both starting quarterbacks threw 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Penn State is now 4-2 (1-1), while Michigan is 5-1 (1-1).
