Ohio State-Northwestern final score: Buckeyes rally, down NU, 40-30 - Land-Grant Holy Land
Despite a trying first half from Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller and another game that did corner Bradley Roby's NFL Draft stock no favor, the Buckeyes dug deep and were able to put together a far more cohesive offensive and defensive second half en route to a 40-30 victory over Northwestern.

UConn Bye / Coaching Change

Weist speaks on quarterback switch - The UConn Blog
we feel like at this time we need to give Tim a chance to play and see if he can provide a spark for our team. He has been working hard and deserves and opportunity to show what he can do. Chandler is still a big factor and leader on this team and we know that he will continue to prepare as if he’s the starter and when his number is called he will be ready to help this team in whatever capacity is needed.

EMU Buffalo 42, Eastern Michigan 14 1 4 MAC 0 2 at Army

Time for leadership " Eagle Totem Eagle Totem
What would be the ramifications of firing English immediately? Probably minimal. From a financial point of view, his contract runs through 12/31/13. He’s going to get paid for that regardless, but it’s not as though EMU would be paying two head coaches full salary at once.

From a team perspective, Stan Parrish is more than capable of jumping in as interim head coach to finish out the season; he’s been both an interim head coach and a regular head coach before. As for the defense, either defensive line coach Ken Delgado or linebackers coach Mark Criner could run the show; each has previously been a DC for an FBS school.

Kent Northern Illinois 38, Kent State 24 2 4 MAC 1 2 at Ball State

Northern Illinois-Kent State: Rematch, same result - Hustle Belt
In similar vein to the 2012 MACCG, Kent State made it as good a game as they could. The game featured two ties and two lead changes, with the Flashes' last advantage coming in the third quarter, 24-21. Jordan Lynch was fine, yes, but he didn't need to be the unilateral conqueror we've come to known him as.

Starting with: Cameron Stingily was put to work in the backfield, running it 37 times for 266 yards. Jimmie Ward had a fumble recovery and an interception, desperately trying to remind the territory that defensive side is also not without its stars.

Bowling Green Bowling Green 27, UMass 7 5 1 MAC 3 0 at Mississippi St

FalconBlog--Triumphs and Trials in the BGSU Falcon Nation: Sweet Victory #5--Overview
Well, back at home again after another day at the Doyt. BG moved to 5-1 on the season with 28-7 victory over Massachusetts. Certainly the Falcons are always glad to win, especially in MAC play. And let's not lose sight of the fact that the game was never in doubt after early in the 2nd Quarter. Having said that, it was not the dominant performance that we had hoped for. The defense certainly dominated, but on the offensive side of the ball BG was pretty sluggish, especially early. UMass has been averaging giving up 37 and they gave up only 28 to BG.
