... to Northwestern, who loses to Western Michigan. What does it all mean? I don't know either!

My 2 cents, ND defense sucks! If Duke can score 38pts., MSU scoring 36 & winning in South Bend maybe not as impressive as I thought.

How good is Wisconsin? Held LSU to 14pts., but LSU only scores 13 in a 18-13 loss to Auburn tonight. BTW Miles mismanaged the clock & the refs screwed up twice. Clock at 0:00 before snap & the QB was beyond the line of scrimmage when he threw. Neither where called, thank goodness for instant replay.

So back to the Badgers, only saw 2nd half vs LSU, defense looked really good. Sparty had 325yds of offense but 4 turnovers obviously hurt them. Their run game shut down 75yds on 27 carries, avg. only 2.8yds/carry. Badgers TD drives: 5yds. & 28yds.

LSU had 3 turnovers but also scored on a pick-6.

No question Badgers will be a tough test, but their frosh QB hasn't seen a defense like Michigan's. And their defense hasn't faced an offense like Michigan. If M doesn't have TO's giving Badgers a short field to work with, & if M keeps mixing it up on off., takes what defense gives them, (and hopefully doesn't have 3 more PI calls) I see M winning comfortably, 28 or 31-10.

I guess Colorado is better than people thought after all! Won at Oregon with backup QB today. Could see them compete for Pac-12/South division title.

Yes- Next week will be a test. PSU is a bad football team. Barkley is good but they have major talent deficits and are not well coached. Think they finished with 4 or 5 wins total.

I also was encouraged by Colorado's performance with their back-up QB.

Hate losing Clark for the year, hope we lose no more dbacks.

Loved seeing all of the running backs getting some significant snaps and doing well with it.

Khalid Hill has been a great blocker- it really comes through live. Once again Deveon Smith saved a big pass play by picking up a blitz. On the other play where he held, I do not complain because the (TD)play would not have been made without the hold and sleight would have been drilled.

Speight was solid but again made several bad passes, we had 6 on another deep ball if he doesn't under throw it, he biffed on a screen, and missed a wide open Darboh on the first possession of the second half instead throwing to a covered Grant Perry. He did do a lot of good things though. He moved very well in the pocket and made several good reads.

Speight refuses to be sacked. I love his mobility and awareness.

I like it to but it's also scary. We've all watched as that turns wrong at times...

Well, he'd been good at tossing it out of bounds and not throwing into coverage.
