Ohio State W 63-14 vs Penn State 8 0 Big 10 4 0 at Purdue

Ohio State-Penn State final score: Bucks dominate, down PSU, 63-14 - Land-Grant Holy Land
Braxton Miller, Carlos Hyde, and the rest of the Buckeye offense went 80 yards for a touchdown in the first three minutes of the game and never looked back, dominating Penn State in nearly every facet of the game, giving Kenny Guiton and other backups plenty of playing time, and pollsters and talking heads plenty to think about.

Baylor W 59-14 at Kansas 7 0 Big 12 4 0 vs Oklahoma

Baylor owns the State of Kansas after 59-14 whipping of the Jayhawks - Our Daily Bears
Despite a second half that looked, at times, extremely sloppy on both sides of the ball, the Baylor Bears improved on their undefeated record this season with another dominant victory. They outgained the Jayhawks by 400+ yards, held them scoreless while the starters were in the game, and won by 45.

Stony Brook L 31-13 vs UNH 3 4 CAA 1 3 at Maine

New Hampshire Wildcats vs. Stony Brook Seawolves - Recap - October 26, 2013 - ESPN
Stony Brook (3-4, 1-3) grabbed a small lead in the first quarter when Graham Ball kicked a 21-yard field goal. The Wildcats responded with a safety and shortly after a touchdown, taking a lead that they would not relent. Ball kicked another field goal to finish out the half 16-6. A TD pass by Lyle Negron nearing the end of the third marked the last points for the Seawolves.

UConn L 62-17 at UCF 0 7 AAC 0 3 vs Louisville

UCF 62 - UConn 17: What else is there to say? - The UConn Blog
At the end of the day, these are the facts. UConn was just annihilated 62-17 on the road by UCF, which is probably the best team UConn will face all season and in all likelihood will represent The American in the BCS at the end of the year. The team is now 0-7, eliminated from bowl contention and will most likely fall to 0-8 after the last bye week when the Huskies bite the Teddy Bridgewater bullet at home against Louisville on Nov. 8

EMU L 59-20 at NIU 1 7 MAC 0 4 at Toledo

Northern Illinois 59, Eastern Michigan 20: Jordan Lynch does it all vs Eagles - Red And Black Attack

WMU W 31-30 at UMass 1 8 MAC 1 4 at EMU (11/9)

FINAL: Western Michigan Beats UMass 31-30 - Hustle Belt
With under two minutes to go, UMass trailed by seven and were within striking distance. With 22 seconds left on the clock A.J. Doyle hooked up with Lorenzo Woodley in the endzone to bring the Minutemen one point away from sending the game into overtime. But for some strange reason Charley Molnar opted to go for the win and two instead of kicking the extra point and likely sending the game into overtime.

Western Michigan Broncos vs. Massachusetts Minutemen - Recap - October 26, 2013 - ESPN

Kent L 42-12 vs Buffalo 2 7 MAC 1 4 at Akron

Bulls achieve bowl eligibility - Bull Run
Khalil Mack was again causing havoc all over the field but he had no bigger play than his game-chaning interception at his own five, late in the second quarter. Kent State quarterback Colin Reardon's pass was grabbed by Mack's right hand and reeled in. He then was able to take it into Bulls territory to set up Oliver's second touchdown.

Ohio W 41-16 vs Miami 6 2 MAC 3 1 at Bufalo (11/5) - For Fans of Ohio University Sports
Eight different Ohio players contributed to seven sacks of three differing Miami quarterbacks. Freshman Tarell Basham, who entered the day as the MAC leader in sacks, had one more to give him six on the year. Ben Russell had seven tackles and Cameron McLeod had six. "We were banged up on the offensive line," Miami coach Mike Bath said. "That's something we knew coming into today, and those injuries really caught up to us. Also, at quarterback we have to trust what we're seeing, and I don't believe we did that as much as we should have today."

Toledo W 28-25 at BGSU 5 3 MAC 3 1 vs EMU

Toledo Rockets vs. Bowling Green Falcons - Recap - October 26, 2013 - ESPN

Bowling Green L 28-25 vs Toledo 5 3 MAC 3 1 at Miami (11/5)

FalconBlog--Triumphs and Trials in the BGSU Falcon Nation: Sadness Accrues, Part II
And that was that. A heartbreaking way to lose. It wasn't all lost on the last drive. BG played an uneven game, especially on defense, and made critical errors at critical times. It reminded me of the 2011 OU game...a team taking a long, clock killing drive when behind to put us away. We did not close the deal.
