Blackhawks Drop Shoot-Out To Red Wings
Saturday's Blackhawks game was literally a shoot-out as the two teams combined for 10 regulation-time goals as the Red Wings pulled out a 6-5 shoot-out victory. Even though the Blackhawks netted three goals in the second period, they gave up three in the third to let the Wings tie the game. It took 'Hawks star Patrick Kane by surprise. “They took it to us in the third period. They got a couple of chances there. We’re ahead 4-2 and the next thing you know we’re down 5-4.”

Northwestern Loses Game, Sutton
It was bad enough that Northwestern couldn't muster a fourth quarter rally in Saturday's 21-19 loss to Indiana. They also had to deal with the loss of RB Tyrell Sutton who left the game in the third quarter with an injured wrist, an injury it now appears will require surgery. Before he went down, Sutton had amassed 77 yard and a touchdown.

Wisconsin Tops Illinois
In a see-saw battle, Illinois QB Juice Williams threw three interceptions and the Illini defense couldn't find a way to stop the Badgers in the fourth quarter as Wisconsin scored 17 unanswered to end the game en route to a 27-17 victory over Illinois. In addition to the three interceptions, Williams threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns but managed only a paltry four yards on the ground.

Northern Illinois Kicks Its Way Past Bowling Green
It was the Mike Salerno show in Dekalb on Saturday as the NIU kicker nailed three field goals, including the game-winning 30-yard kick with 11 seconds remaining as the Huskies topped Bowling Green 16-13. Salerno also made boots of 52- and 25-yards. Wide receiver Landon Cox blocked a Bowling Green punt late in the fourth quarter which led to the game-winning field goal. QB Chandler Harnish was the other offensive star for the Huskies. Despite throwing for only 45 yards and two interceptions, he still ran for 113 yards on the ground.

Irish Drill Washington
The trip to the Left Coast was kind to Notre Dame as they drilled former coach Tyrone Willingham's Washington Huskies 33-7. The Irish had already scored all 33 points before the Huskies managed a late meaningless touchdown. Notre Dame out-gained Washington 454-124. The game also featured Notre Dame's last three coaches. Willingham on the sideline for Washington, Weiss still in charge of the Irish, and Bob Davies in the booth for ESPN, where we think he has about as much success as he did on the sideline.
