Ohio State Claims Big Ten Championship
Nov. 17, 2007
Ohio State 14, Michigan 3: Jim Tressel became the first Ohio State coach to beat Michigan six times in seven years, and the seventh-ranked Buckeyes' 14-3 victory Saturday over their archrival gave them consecutive outright Big Ten titles for the first time in a half-century.
Illinois 41, Northwestern 22: A week after leading his team to an upset of Ohio State, Illinois quarterback Juice Williams led the Illini a step closer to a New Year's Day bowl with a 41-22 win Saturday over Northwestern.
Wisconsin 41, Minnesota 34: David Gilreath made an electrifying return to his home state, racking up 226 return yards to help No. 24 Wisconsin to a 41-34 victory over Minnesota on Saturday.
Indiana 27, Purdue 24: Indiana refused to let another bowl chance slip away Saturday, and certainly not against its archrival Purdue for the second straight year.
Michigan State 35, Penn State 31: Jehuu Caulcrick's 1-yard touchdown plunge with just more than 4 minutes remaining capped a crazy comeback for Michigan State, which likely sealed a bowl bid with a 35-31 victory over Penn State in Saturday's regular season finale.
Western Michigan 28, Iowa 19: Tim Hiller threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns and Western Michigan stunned Iowa 28-19 on Saturday, putting the Hawkeyes' bowl hopes in jeopardy.
