Stephen Houston

2nd quarter recap: Indiana 21, Illinois 14

Indiana’s Stephen Houston led the offense in the second quarter. He ran for 14 yards and one touchdown and caught a 10-yard touchdown pass, and the Hoosiers now lead 21-14. The two touchdowns give Houston three scores, tying a career-high. Illinois has given up 14 straight points. The Fighting Illini broke the 7-7 standoff when Nathan Scheelhaase took a quarterback draw all the way for a five-yard touchdown run to put a bow on an eight-play, 55-yard scoring drive. The ground game accounted for every yard on that drive. Indiana tied the score at 14 apiece after Nate Sudfeld and

1st quarter recap: Illinois 7, Indiana 7

Illinois’ Nathan Scheelhaase threw for 51 yards and one touchdown and ran for 31 yards in the quarter, and the two teams are tied 7-7 at the end of the first. Indiana tied things up at seven when an eight-play, 75-yard drive ended after Stephen Houston pounded in a two-yard touchdown run. The Fighting Illini got on the scoreboard first, rattling off a nine-play, 73-yard drive that ended in a score when Scheelhaase threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Viliunas. Scheelhaase’s 28-yard pass to Darius Millines took Illinois from the 27 and across midfield to ignite the drive. The

Week 9 Power Rankings: Badgers stay white hot

This is the Wisconsin we all expected at the beginning of the season. The last three games, the Badgers have outscored foes 107-41 and outgained them 1,485 yards to 781. Those offensive line troubles are ancient history and the defense has played well all season long. Where do the surging Badgers land on my latest Power Rankings? See my Week 9 Power Rankings in this post. [RELATED: Where are Big Ten teams ranked in latest polls?] 1. Ohio State (8-0, 4-0).

Navy rallies late to nip Indiana, 31-30

Keenan Reynolds completed a 4-yard touchdown pass to Matt Aiken with 2:02 to play and Nick Sloan added the point after as Navy rallied for a 31-30 win over Indiana on Saturday. Parrish Gaines‘ interception with 1:38 remaining sealed the win for the Midshipmen (4-3), who beat a Big Ten opponent for the first time since 1979 when they won at Illinois 13-12. Earlier in the game, Navy linebacker Jordan Drake‘s 24-yard interception return had cut the Hoosiers’ lead to 17-14. The win also kept the Midshipmen’s bowl hopes alive as they need just two wins in their final five
