Penn State James Franklin Outcoached with no Harbaugh; Weekend Recap

Was James Franklin outcoached? Penn State football coach James Franklin lost to the Michigan Wolverines 24-15 Saturday despite the fact Michigan was without suspended coach Jim Harbaugh. And one could argue Franklin was still outcoached.

Sign stealing aside, Michigan practically told Penn State what they were going to do. Michigan ran the ball 32 straight times, did not throw a pass in the second half, and the Nittany Lions’ second ranked rush defense couldn’t stop them.

Elsewhere, the top ranked Ohio State Buckeyes are on cruise control as they beat the Michigan State Spartans.

The Iowa Hawkeyes did what they do and shut out Rutgers. The Hawkeyes clinched at least a tie for the West division title. Kirk Ferentz should get strong consideration for coach of the year.

The Illinois Fighting Illini won a 48-45 overtime shootout against the Indiana Hoosiers. Quarterback John Paddock threw for 4 touchdowns and 507 yards in his first start for the Illini.

The Maryland Terps snapped a 4 game skid and became bowl eligible with a win vs the Nebraska Huskers with a last second field goal.

Two Purdue Boilermakers rushed over 100 yards in their 49-30 win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

And remove ‘Interim’ from coach David Braun’s title as Northwestern earned its 5th win of the year with 24 unanswered points by beating Wisconsin 24-10. The Badgers dropped three straight.
