Hoosiers keep bowl hopes intact by beating Maryland 34-32

Indiana Hoosiers coach Tom Allen changed tactics this week.

Instead of focusing on one game, he took the big-picture approach and his players responded.

Stevie Scott’s late, long run set up Logan Justus for a 42-yard go-ahead field goal with 2:32 to play and Nile Sykes recovered a fumble in the final minute to preserve Indiana’s 34-32 come-from-behind to keep Indiana in the postseason discussion.

“I didn’t want to talk about going to bowl games, but I just said, `You know what, forget all that, I’m talking about bowl games’ because they’re big,” Allen said. “I’m going to call these guys out on it and say that’s what we’re playing for.”

After a slow start, the Hoosiers (5-5, 2-5 Big Ten) rebounded with three touchdowns in less than 4 1/2 minutes in the first half then closed with a flurry to snap a four-game skid. They need one more victory to become bowl-eligible.

At least they still have a chance and largely because they got contributions from each phase.

Scott carried 19 times for 103 yards and one touchdown. Peyton Ramsey went 16 of 28 with 243 yards, two TD passes and one interception and also made two shifty moves on a 35-yard scoring run in the first half.

The defense held Maryland (5-5, 3-4) to field goals on its first two trips into the red zone and forced four turnovers, including the sealing strip-sack of backup quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome.

Justus made all four extra points and two field goals, something Maryland could not. A missed extra point and a failed 2-point conversion with 4:54 left took crucial points off the board for Maryland, spoiling Anthony McFarland’s career-best day. He ran 29 times for 210 yards in relief of the injured Ty Johnson.

 

Minnesota defense shows in 41-10 win against Purdue

Known for his catchphrases, Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck had one for his defense that he repeated often in the week after firing defensive coordinator Robb Smith: sound, simple fast.

The Gophers’ maligned defense looked each part as it held Purdue to season-lows in yards and points for a 41-10 win against the Boilermakers in the cold and snow on Saturday.

Quarterback Seth Green had a touchdown rushing and passing, and redshirt freshman Mohamed Ibrahim ran for 156 yards for Minnesota, which played its first game under interim defensive coordinator Joe Rossi.

The Gophers entered the game allowing 43.2 points and 507.7 yards per game, but linebacker Blake Cashman forced a fumble and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown as Minnesota (5-5, 2-5 Big Ten) held Purdue to 233 total yards and 0 of 12 on third down.

“Sound, simple, fast,” Fleck said of the defensive philosophy. “We didn’t change our defense. The defense is the defense, and the defense works. We got back to us.”

Senior quarterback David Blough was 20 of 31 for 142 yards passing for the Boilermakers (5-5, 4-3), who entered the game second in the Big Ten scoring with 35.8 points per game.

“Really, just some selfish things that are going on that can’t happen,” Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said. “Too many people that have patted themselves on the back too much, and listened to others instead of working their tail off and finding ways to improve, and understanding that all the little things matter, and realizing that the team comes first.”

Fleck fired Smith a day after giving up 646 yards in a loss to Illinois last week. Rossi was the team’s defensive line coach this season.

The announced 21-degree weather was the third-coldest start for a game in the 10-year history of TCF Bank Stadium. A light snow fell during much of second half in which Minnesota took control.

 

Backup QB Wimbush, defense help No. 3 Irish dominate FSU

Just what third-ranked Notre Dame doesn’t need going into its final two regular-season games: A quarterback controversy created by its coach.

“We want a full-blow controversy, front-page news,” Brian Kelly said with tongue firmly planted in cheek after watching senior backup Brandon Wimbush’s three-touchdown performance in a 42-13 victory over Florida State on Senior Night in frosty Notre Dame Stadium.

Wimbush, who led the Irish to their first three victories, got the start in place of injured junior Ian Book, who suffered a rib injury last week against Northwestern and is expected to be cleared to play next Saturday at Yankee Stadium when the Irish (10-0, No. 3 CFP) play No. 13 Syracuse.

Wimbush finished 12 of 25 for 130 yards with the scoring passes to fellow seniors – a 3-yarder to wide receiver Miles Boykin and 6- and 15-yard tosses to tight end Alize Mack.

“It was really emotional,” Wimbush said. “The six weeks were tough, but they were inspiring. The first half was one of the best I think the team has had. It felt natural. We got off to a great start.”

Fellow senior Dexter Williams ran for a career-high 202 yards and Notre Dame’s defense came up with two first-quarter turnovers by the Seminoles (4-6).

Kelly admitted it would be tough not to go back to Book, who leads the nation in completion percentage (74.5) and is sixth in passing efficiency (170.0) while passing for 1,811 and 14 touchdowns since taking over in week four.

“When the doctor says he’s cleared to go,” Kelly said after being asked when Book would reclaim his starting role. But he didn’t want to diminish Wimbush’s performance.

“Brandon wants to win for Notre Dame, for his teammates,” Kelly said. “He’s been that way whether in a starting role or as a backup. He led our football team when we needed him. It’s not an individual game but he had a big hand in it.”

 

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.

In a tight defensive struggle, Chrisman’s punts forced Michigan State (6-4, 4-3 Big Ten, No. 18 CFP) to start its first five drives after halftime from its own 5, 6, 3, 1 and 2-yard line. On the fourth of those possessions, the Spartans took an intentional safety instead of punting out of their own end zone. That decision gave Ohio State a 9-6 lead but wasn’t enough to flip the field position.

The ensuing free kick went out of bounds, giving the Buckeyes the ball at the 50, and then Chrisman pinned Michigan State back again. Ohio State (9-1, 6-1, No. 10) capitalized on that punt when a shotgun snap by Michigan State hit the man in motion. Dre’Mont Jones recovered the fumble for the Buckeyes in the end zone, giving Ohio State a 16-6 advantage.

 

Patterson throws 3 TDs, No. 4 Michigan beats Rutgers 42-7

Shea Patterson has stamped Michigan a national title contender.

Patterson threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, Karan Higdon ran for a pair of 1-yard scores and the fourth-ranked Wolverines routed Rutgers 42-7 on Saturday for their ninth straight win.

Patterson threw darts in swirling winds in front of thousands of fans bundled in Michigan colors. Up ahead, another week with national title hopes in the Big House.

“The one thing I think we do a really good job of is not getting distracted by where we are now,” Patterson said, “and don’t let that distract us from where we want to be.”

The Wolverines (9-1, 7-0, No. 4 CFP) remain in first place in the Big Ten’s East Division. They have a final tuneup against Indiana next weekend before closing the regular season at No. 8 Ohio State.

Michigan hasn’t lost since the season opener against No. 3 Notre Dame and would have to beat the Buckeyes for just the second time in 15 years to keep any hope at a national title alive.

Patterson kept his focus and Michigan reaped the rewards.

The Wolverines showed no signs of any slipup against lowly Rutgers (1-9, 0-7), holding the Scarlet Knights without a yard passing on the stat sheet until the third quarter. The Wolverines took the field on a chilly night in front of thousands of fans in blue-and-maize winter hats and jackets who turned Rutgers into a Big House East.

Michigan’s win was never in doubt – it was a 38 1/2-point favorite and had outscored Rutgers 162-30 over their last three meetings. Michigan’s 78-0 win two years ago in Piscataway was perhaps the most horrifying defeat of Rutgers’ 149 seasons.

 

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.

If Sanders had been irritated that his rushing totals had fallen off along with the Nittany Lions’ offensive output lately, he hadn’t shown it. He considers himself a patient tailback, and he channeled some pent-up energy into running over the Badgers.

“People may say that at times (Sanders) had been frustrated, but you never saw that,” Penn State coach James Franklin said. “Would we love to rush for more yards week in and week out? No doubt about it.”

Penn State (7-3, 4-3 Big Ten, No. 20 CFP) racked up 200-plus rushing yards in each of the first six games but had averaged just 120 over the last three. Meanwhile, McSorley – a key part of the team’s rushing attack – has been dealing with a sore right knee.

McSorley completed 19 of 25 passes for 160 yards and a TD. He appeared to hurt his left knee in the first half but got some relief watching Sanders juke through the Badgers with his shifty running style.

 

Defense powers No. 1 Alabama past No. 18 MSU, 24-0

Alabama’s offense didn’t put up the video game-like numbers that had seemingly become commonplace. The defense played so well, again, that it didn’t matter.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide had its second straight shutout in a 24-0 victory over No. 18 Mississippi State on Saturday, while Josh Jacobs ran for a touchdown and caught a scoring pass.

With quarterback Tua Tagovailoa still battling a gimpy right knee, the Tide (10-0, 7-0 Southeastern Conference, No. 1 CFP) turned to defense for another vintage performance.

“I think in this day and age, you not only get judged on whether you win but you get judged on how you win,” Tide coach Nick Saban said. “I never thought I’d ever be in position to say that you get style points but the way our system is, that may be the way it is.”

The offense had already banked plenty of style – and real – points along the way.

Alabama raced to a fast start but mostly stalled from there against the Bulldogs (6-4, 2-4) and the nation’s No. 2 scoring defense.

Tagovailoa started the fourth quarter on a stationary bike after getting his right knee checked out in the medical tent following a low hit. He didn’t return and wasn’t needed, mainly because of a defense that was overshadowed by an offense that had led the nation in scoring much of the season.

Saban said Tagovailoa could have returned if needed.

“He got hit low a few times out there today,” Saban said. “He got hit in the front of the knee and not the back, which is where his problem was. I think he’s OK.”

 

Milton accounts for 3 TDs, No. 11 UCF beats Navy 35-24

No. 11 UCF is becoming predictable as the Knights pursue another undefeated season.

The defending American Athletic Conference champions keep on winning while insisting they aren’t listening to chatter about whether they will be deserving of a berth in the College Football Playoff if they remain unbeaten when the four-team field is picked in December.

Now, coach Josh Heupel and his players say they’re turning their focus to No. 25 Cincinnati, which comes to Florida next week for a crucial AAC test.

A victory over the Bearcats will clinch a spot in the conference championship game.

“At the end of the day, if you’re doing it right inside of your program, each game becomes bigger,” Heupel said Saturday after McKenzie Milton threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third to key a 35-24 victory over Navy that extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 22 games.

“That’s what we want. That’s the type of program we’re trying to build,” Heupel added. “I have great respect for Cincinnati. We’re going to enjoy this one today and move on to Cincinnati tomorrow.”

UCF (9-0, 6-0) finished as the only unbeaten team in the Football Bowl Subdivision a year ago, but was not included in the CFP. The Knights currently are one of four FBS teams that remain undefeated, along with the top three teams in the latest CFP rankings – Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame.

Although Heupel reiterated the Knights are only concerned with trying to go “1-0 every week,” the first-year coach said he’s growing tired of playoff talk.

 

Grier throws for 3 TDs, No. 7 West Virginia beats TCU 47-10

Once No. 7 West Virginia’s offense found a rhythm, the Mountaineers imposed their will on TCU.

West Virginia scored three touchdowns in a 3:25 span late in the second quarter to break open a tie game and propel the Mountaineers to a 47-10 victory over the Horned Frogs on Saturday.

Will Grier had touchdown throws of 32, 8 and 4 yards, the eighth time this season he’s had at least three. Grier finished 25 of 39 for 343 yards on a breezy day.

“I have a lot of respect for (TCU coach) Gary Patterson and that team. Controlling the tempo is huge,” Grier said, adding that offensive coordinator Jake Spavital “did a great job of mixing it up and just us being on the same page.”

West Virginia (8-1, 6-1 Big 12, No. 9 CFP) piled up 535 yards of offense against the injury-riddled Horned Frogs (4-6, 2-5) as it pursues a possible berth in the conference championship game with two regular-season games left.

“Morale’s good. Confidence is good. Work ethic is good. It’s why we’re winning,” West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said. “You’re only as good as your next one, so these guys have to continue doing that.”

Four of West Virginia’s six touchdown drives took less than 1:30.

“When we get going, we’re dangerous,” West Virginia tight end Travon Wesco said. “We’ve got to come out like that and know that we have to have that mentality every time we touch the ball.”

TCU (4-6, 2-5) was held to a season-low 222 yards of offense, the third time in four games it’s gained fewer than 300. The Horned Frogs are in jeopardy of missing a bowl for just the third time under Patterson.

 

AP source: Jimmy Butler going to 76ers from Minnesota

Jimmy Butler has his wish: He’s out of Minnesota.

And just like that, Philadelphia has a new Big Three – one that could make serious noise in the Eastern Conference.

A person with knowledge of the situation said Saturday that Butler is being traded to the 76ers in a package that will send Dario Saric and Robert Covington to the Timberwolves. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not yet been announced by either team and was still pending NBA approval, which is not expected until Monday.

Justin Patton will also be sent to Philadelphia, and Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round pick are also going to Minnesota, the person said.

The Athletic first reported the agreement.

Because the trade was not official, Sixers coach Brett Brown had little comment.

“I can’t speak much about it. I’m sorry,” he said before the Sixers played Memphis.

Sixers guard T.J. McConnell said he learned of the deal through social media.

“I didn’t think it was true until more reports started coming out,” McConnell said. “It’s kind of that feeling in your stomach of just like, I mean, you can’t really explain it. I was in disbelief.”

Philadelphia’s “Process” led it to the second round of the playoffs last season behind two of the game’s youngest, brightest stars in big man Joel Embiid and point guard Ben Simmons. Butler, an elite wing player and outstanding defender, will join them in a quest to rule the Eastern Conference now that LeBron James is out West with the Los Angeles Lakers following eight straight trips to the NBA Finals with Miami and Cleveland.
