Michigan at Ohio State

Ohio State 26, Michigan 21: Photos, videos & recaps

Carlos Hyde ran for 146 yards and No. 4 Ohio State’s defense shut out 20th-ranked Michigan in the second half to grab a bruising 26-21 victory on Saturday, completing an improbable 12-0 season for the Buckeyes. It was a sweet win for the Buckeyes, just 6-7 last season with a loss to their archrivals in a transitional year in which they were facing heavy NCAA penalties.

Indiana at Purdue

Purdue 56, Indiana 35: Photos, videos & recaps

Akeem Shavers broke open a close game with three scores during a 4½-minute span in the fourth quarter, giving Purdue a 56-35 victory over archrival Indiana on Saturday. Robert Marve threw for a career-high 348 yards and four touchdowns in his final home game – a win that made the Boilermakers (6-6, 3-5 Big Ten) bowl eligible for the second straight year, the first time that has happened since 2006-07. By retaining the Old Oaken Bucket, coach Danny Hope also can make a stronger case to keep his job. Indiana (4-8, 2-6) has now lost nine of the last 11

Illinois at Northwestern

Northwestern 50, Illinois 14: Photos, videos & recaps

Venric Mark rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown as Northwestern improved its chances for a berth in a New Year’s Day bowl game, beating Illinois 50-14 on Saturday. Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter threw for a career-high three touchdowns and the Wildcats (9-3, 5-3 Big Ten) reached nine victories for the first time since 2008. Penalties and turnovers hurt Illinois (2-10, 0-8), which has lost nine straight and 14 in a row in Big Ten play. The Illini committed four turnovers – including three interceptions – and eight penalties in their season finale. Northwestern captured the Land of Lincoln Trophy

Nebraska 13, Iowa 7: Photos, videos & recaps

Playing in cold and windy conditions in Iowa City, Nebraska held on to beat Iowa 13-7 to clinch at least a share of the Legends Division and a berth in next Saturday’s Big Ten Championship against Wisconsin. Neither team scored in the fourth quarter but a late interception sealed it for the Huskers.

Martinez sets record, Nebraska drops Minnesota

Taylor Martinez threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns to Kenny Bell while becoming No. 16 Nebraska’s all-time passing leader in a 38-14 victory over Minnesota on Saturday. The Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-1), who had to come from behind in the second half in four of its first five Big Ten wins, scored on four of their first six possessions against the Gophers (6-5, 2-5). Nebraska can clinch the Legends Division title – and a berth in the conference championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 1 – with a win at Iowa on Friday or a Michigan loss at Ohio State

Ohio State tops Wisconsin in OT, moves to 11-0

Carlos Hyde scored on a 2-yard run in overtime Saturday, giving No. 6 Ohio State a 21-14 victory over Wisconsin and keeping the Buckeyes’ hopes of a perfect season alive. The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) clinched the Leaders Division title outright with the win. But they are ineligible for the postseason as part of their punishment for NCAA violations under former coach Jim Tressel, and the best they can hope for is to end the year unbeaten and to maybe capture the AP Top 25 title.

Purdue edges Illinois, moves closer to bowl game

Akeem Hunt turned a short pass into a 63-yard touchdown, and Purdue took another step toward a second consecutive bowl berth with a 20-17 victory at Illinois on Saturday. Hunt’s big play gave the Boilermakers (5-6, 2-5 Big Ten) a 13-3 lead in the third quarter. After Illinois pulled within 13-10 on a 16-yard touchdown run by Dami Ayoola, Ralph Bolden‘s 63-yard run set up Akeem Shavers‘ 6-yard TD scamper for a 20-10 Purdue lead.

3rd quarter recap: Ohio State 14, Wisconsin 7

The third quarter was so slow, the teams combined for more punts than points, and the margin is still seven, as Ohio State leads 14-7. Both teams saw their defenses make stands, forcing three punts in the quarter. The Buckeyes stuffed the run, giving up just 16 yards on the ground in the quarter. Wisconsin has possession on Ohio State’s 23-yard line to start the fourth quarter.
