Four Teams Remain Undefeated After Saturday Action
Sept. 22, 2007
Illinois 27, Indiana 14: Illinois' Rashard Mendenhall followed his blockers, steadied his shoulders and ran right over Indiana's defenders Saturday.
Michigan State 31, Notre Dame 14: Brian Hoyer threw four touchdown passes and Javon Ringer rushed for 144 yards to lead Michigan State to a 31-14 victory over Notre Dame.
Ohio State 58, Northwestern 7: Todd Boeckman tossed three touchdown passes to Brian Robiskie in the first half to lead the eighth-ranked Buckeyes past the Wildcats 58-7 on Saturday.
Michigan 14, Penn State 9: Mike Hart ran for 153 yards on a career-high 44 carries and scored early in the fourth quarter, leading Michigan to a 14-9 win over No. 10 Penn State on Saturday.
Wisconsin 17, Iowa 13: Needing a fourth-quarter goal-line stand to bolster their upset bid, Iowa's stubborn defense stuffed Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill on two straight plays. Hill wouldn't be denied on his third try, as he plowed up the middle on third-and-goal for the go-ahead touchdown in No. 9 Wisconsin's 17-13 victory over the Hawkeyes on Saturday night.
Purdue 45, Minnesota 31: After a sluggish first half, Curtis Painter was nearly flawless in the final two quarters to lift Purdue to a 45-31 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night.
