New, comments

A good week was had by many.

As always, a peek at our non-con opponents first:

South Dakota State 29, Indiana State 0: Sycamores QB Mike Perish went down early in the game, but the Trees couldn't muster any offense with his replacement either, going just over 151 total yards in the shutout. For the Jackrabbits, Austin Sumner threw for 207 yards and a touchdown, and Justin Syrovatka tacked on 3 field goals. Indiana State falls to 1-9 on the season.

Navy 42, Hawaii 28: Navy's Keenan Reynolds ran for four touchdowns and added a fifth through the air as the Midshipmen ran all over Hawaii. The Rainbow Warriors stayed within a touchdown for most of the game, but never held the lead. The Midshipmen improved to 5-4.

Bowling Green 45, Miami (OH) 3: The Redhawks kicked a field goal in the first quarter to go down 7-3, and would get no closer the rest of the way. Bowling Green stomped its MAC East and in-state rival, recording the largest victory in the 70 meetings between the teams. The Falcons are now bowl eligible at 6-3.

#8 Missouri 48, Kentucky 17: Dorial Green-Beckham caught four of Maty Mauk's five touchdown passes as Missouri easily took down Kentucky. The Wildcats kept the game respectable in every stat but the scoreline, and actually led early before falling way behind. The Tigers are now 9-1 for the year.

And in the B1G:

Minnesota 24, Penn State 10: Minnesota's dream season keeps rolling with a beatdown of the Nittany Lions for the Governor's Victory Bell. Philip Nelson threw for one touchdown and ran for another for the Golden Gophers, while Zach Zwinak and Sam Ficken provided all of the points for Penn State. Minnesota is 8-2 (4-2), while Penn State is 5-4 (2-3).

Iowa 38, Purdue 14: The Boilers got into the red zone for the first time since September, but it wasn't nearly enough to claim a win over the Hawkeyes. Iowa rolled up 509 yards of offense on the Purdue defense, and held the Boilers to under 300 yards of offense. Iowa becomes bowl eligible at 6-4 (3-3), while Purdue is now 1-8 (0-5).

Nebraska 17, Michigan 13: The Huskers hung Brady Hoke's first home loss as Michigan's coach on him this weekend, outlasting the Wolverines at the Big House. Ameer Abdullah scored both of Nebraska's touchdowns, one on the ground and one receiving, and Pat Smith's kicking put them over the top. Michigan had its second straight week of negative rushing yards, finishing at -21 this week. Nebraska goes to 7-2 (4-1), while Michigan is now 6-3 (2-3).

#24 Wisconsin 27, BYU 17: The Badgers never trailed in their non-conference break against the Cougars. James White provided all of the Wisconsin touchdowns, while Taysom Hill to Cody Hoffman covered the BYU touchdowns. Wisconsin moves to 7-2 (4-1) with the win.
