If you missed it Saturday, Gary Andersen wasn’t exactly thrilled that he and the Badgers weren’t granted a timeout seconds before Penn State snapped the ball and scored a touchdown late in the second quarter. Leading 14-7 and with Penn State deep in Wisconsin’s red zone, Andersen noticed a mismatch on the outside and sprinted down the sideline to call a timeout. The officials ignored the timeout request, and Christian Hackenberg hit Geno Lewis for an easy 3-yard scoring strike. See the play in this post.
Michigan-Ohio State is one of the fiercest rivalries in all of sports, so it’s not uncommon for tempers to flare a little bit when the two teams meet. That’s just what happened early in the second quarter following a short Ohio State kickoff return. The two sides mixed it up after returner Dontre Wilson was brought down near the 15-yard line, and, in the end, three players were ejected.
Iowa and Penn State both lost heartbreakers in their respective tournament title games Saturday. Villanova topped the Hawkeyes in overtime in the Battle 4 Atlantis championship, while Ole Miss nipped the Nittany Lions in the Barclays Center Classic final. Nebraska, however, topped NIU.

Saturday was Braxton Miller’s 21st birthday. To no surprise, Ohio State football fans wanted to send their star quarterback birthday wishes. The number of messages inevitably increased following Miller’s memorable performance in Ohio State’s narrow 42-41 win at Michigan. See what Miller’s phone looked like after the game.
Michigan State running back Jeremy Langford is as hot as any Big Ten back, and he continued his torrid play on the Spartans’ opening drive Saturday vs. Minnesota. The junior running back ripped off a 15-yard scoring run to put Michigan State up 7-0. At the end of the run, after crossing the pilon, Langford’s momentum caused him to run into and over a Minnesota cheerleader. Watch the run and the collision in this post.
