Kryst has a prayer answered after looking absolutely terrible tonight.   That 4th and 10?  where did that come from?   Tough break for Beavs, who have looked a lot different the past couple weeks, wonder why?  ;)

Looking forward to watching how this 2-4 Florida State team performs tonight on the road against a peaking Boston College team. Jimbo is going through what Brian Kelly went through last season. Like ND, the Noles will be fine in the long run, but in the meantime entertainment runs aplenty as their lost season unfolds. When the losing atmosphere boiled over in Tally last weekend even the coaches were getting into it with the home fans.

Who had BC beating FSU 35-3 at any point in their lifetime?  I know FSU's QB sit is abysmal, but that was a surrender by the D, BC was ready to pounce.

It's like Don Brown took a great defense and horrible offense with him to Michigan, leaving BC to score points again

Ohio U defeated Miami(OH) in the annual Battle of the Bricks

In another travelling trophy game, Bowling Green edged Kent for the Anniversary Award. Whatever that is.

Fearless Frankie and the Bobcats cover the spread!

makes me wonder if Frank wasn't so old, if he would have any interest in coming back to UNL

he would be what Bill Moos calls a "good fit"

Having already defeated Eastern, Western could win the Michigan Mac Trophy tonight by downing Central.

Even if the Broncos lose, they could still hang onto the Trophy if Eastern beats Central next week, creating a rock, paper, scissors scenario.

Central can obviously still earn the Trophy by winning both games.

Eastern, however, has to wait until next year, as they can do no better than 1-1.

It took some serious digging, but I was finally able to unearth what this Anniversary Award thingamajig looks like.

After Central's comeback win over Western, the Michigan Mac Trophy is their's for the taking. All the Chippewas have to do is beat Eastern at home next week.

Western can still retain the trophy by rule if Eastern beats Central next week, whereby a rock paper scissors scenario unfolds.

Worse for the Broncos is that the loss all but eliminates them from the Mac West race, although they do have Toledo and N Illinois down the stretch, so they could get back in it with a little help.

Speaking of Toledo and N Illinois, Toledo beat N Illinois, creating a little bit of breathing room for themselves atop the Mac West standings.

It looks like the East Division race is down to Akron and Ohio, who play against each other in two weeks. Ohio needs that game more than Akron though, as the Bobcats still have to play Toledo.

Many more weeknight Mac Trophy games down the stretch, as Ball St plays N Illinois for the Bronze Stalk next week, Toledo and Bowling Green play for the I-75 Trophy the following week, and finally Akron plays crosstown rival Kent for the Wagon Wheel while Ball St and Miami kick off their newly protected crossover rivalry by playing for the inaugural Redbird Trophy during Thanksgiving week.
