    No. 5 Michigan routs Penn State 42-7, wins 8th game in row

    No. 5 Michigan wanted to do more than just beat No. 14 Penn State.

    The Wolverines wanted to win big, getting revenge after getting routed and humiliated against the Nittany Lions last year.

    Michigan got what it wanted.

    Shea Patterson accounted for three touchdowns and the Wolverines put together a dominant performance on defense in a 42-7 rout against Penn State on Saturday.

    Evans' field goal sends Purdue past No. 19 Iowa 38-36

    Purdue kicker Spencer Evans waited impatiently for a second chance.

    When the opportunity finally arrived Saturday, he was ready, willing and spot on.

    The senior made a 25-yard field goal with 8 seconds left to give Purdue a 38-36 upset over No. 19 Iowa, helping the surging Boilermakers move within one game of becoming bowl-eligible and back into contention for the Big Ten's West Division crown.

    McSorley matches wins mark, No. 21 Penn State tops Wisconsin

    Trace McSorley and Penn State went back to a familiar formula Saturday -- a steady diet of elusive Miles Sanders.

    The resurgent running game put the Nittany Lions offense back on track, and got McSorley a milestone victory, too.

    Sanders ran for 159 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, McSorley matched Todd Blackledge's program record with his 29th win at quarterback and No. 21 Penn State beat Wisconsin 22-10.

    No. 8 Ohio State pins No. 24 Michigan State back, 26-6

    Drue Chrisman's first punt of the day was an embarrassment, a 4-yarder at the end of Ohio State's first possession.

    "I don't know where it ranks in Ohio State's worst punts in history, but it was definitely my worst punt," Chrisman said. "I was just like, `Man, I've got to ball after this one."

    Chrisman made up for that early blooper, keeping Michigan State pinned back with a sensational second half of punting. Eighth-ranked Ohio State pulled away for a 26-6 victory over the 24th-ranked Spartans on Saturday, largely because of what Chrisman did to Michigan State's field position.

    No. 9 Ohio State survives in OT, beating Maryland 52-51

    Relentlessly zipping up and down the field, ninth-ranked Ohio State and upstart Maryland were racking up yards and points at a dizzying pace.

    Finally, the Terrapins were presented with the chance to end it -- one way or another.

    A gutsy decision by Maryland interim coach Matt Canada did not achieve the desired results, and the Buckeyes avoided one of the most stunning upsets in this college football season by squeezing out a 52-51 victory in overtime on Saturday.

    McSorley throws 2 TDs, No. 16 Penn State D dominates in win

    Trace McSorley became the winningest quarterback in Penn State history with a lot of help from his friends.

    McSorley threw two touchdown passes to tight end Pat Freiermuth and No. 16 Penn State's defense set up two touchdowns with turnovers in a 20-7 victory over Rutgers on Saturday, sending the Scarlet Knights to their 10th straight loss.

    Northwestern stays in stride with 24-14 win at Minnesota

    When he was an assistant at Northern Illinois, Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck once cold-called Pat Fitzgerald for a lunch meeting to learn about being a head coach.

    A decade later, Fitzgerald and his Northwestern Wildcats are still teaching teams like the Gophers how to win in the Big Ten.

    Isaiah Bowser rushed for 85 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 24 Northwestern turned three turnovers by Minnesota quarterback Tanner Morgan into 10 points on the way to a 24-14 victory on Saturday that stretched its program-record road winning streak to eight games.

    Buckeye blitz: No. 10 Ohio State blows out No. 4 Michigan

    This season for Ohio State has been anything but normal, beginning with its celebrated coach suspended for three games.

    There have been spotty performances and troubling trends on both sides of the ball. There has been constant speculation and questions about Urban Meyer's health and future.

    After all that, it was business as usual against Michigan, and now the Buckeyes are right where they always expect to be.

    Dwayne Haskins threw five touchdown passes , freshman Chris Olavehad a breakout performance and No. 10 Ohio State continued its mastery over No. 4 Michigan with a record-setting 62-39 victory Saturday that sends the Buckeyes to the Big Ten championship game.

    Thorson helps No. 20 Northwestern beats Illinois 24-16

    With nothing really to play for, and with the Big Ten championship game looming next weekend, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald decided to pull many of his starters in the second half Saturday against rival Illinois.

    Fitzgerald stuck with the plan in spite of unexpected tense moments down the stretch.

    Clayton Thorson accounted for three touchdowns, Isaiah Browser rushed for 166 yards on 18 carries and No. 20 Northwestern beat Illinois 24-16 for its seventh straight Big Ten win.

    McSorley helps No. 15 Penn State rout Maryland 38-3

    Just before he ran out of the Beaver Stadium tunnel for the last time, Trace McSorley gathered his teammates and made a promise he probably didn't have to make.

    "I just said, `I promise you guys that I'm going to leave everything out there today," McSorley said following No. 15 Penn State's 38-3 victory over Maryland on Saturday.

    Ohio State pulls away from Wildcats to win Big Ten crown

    Dwayne Haskins and Urban Meyer reveled in the victory celebration Saturday night.

    Now the College Football Playoff selection committee gets to decide whether the Big Ten champions will continue dancing through the next six weeks.

    Shortly after Haskins made his case to win the Heisman Trophy by throwing five more touchdown passes, the Buckeyes defense fended off a second half charge from No. 21 Northwestern and Meyer put his hands on a third conference championship trophy in five years as the conversation quickly turned to the more immediate fate of No. 6 Ohio State.

    "This means representing the Big Ten Conference, arguably the best conference in college football, and the East Division, arguably the best division in college football," Meyer said as the lobbying began after a 45-24 victory. "I think all you have to do is look is at the body of work. We went on the road and won some tough games -- TCU, Penn State and Michigan State. The way we played against our rival (Michigan) and the way we played tonight, I think we deserve a shot."
