Game Day


Drake (2-2) vs. Jacksonville (3-1)

When: Saturday, Oct. 4

Where: Drake Stadium

Kickoff: 1 p.m. CDT

Drake got its conference season off to a good start with a 21-6 win over Marist last Saturday. Next up is conference foe Jacksonville, which had little trouble with Butler, 35-7, to go to 2-0 in the league. Dolphin quarterback Kade Bell threw for 401 yards and five scores in the game, while running back Ulysses Bryant churned out 134 yards on just 15 carries. Drake quarterback Andy Rice threw for 248 yards in his last game but will have to improve his performance against a significantly better defense in Jacksonville if the Bulldogs are to have a shot.

CNA - Stop HIV Iowa

Iowa State (1-3) vs. Oklahoma State No. 21 (3-1)

When: Saturday, Oct. 4

Where: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, Oklahoma

Kickoff: 11 a.m. CDT

Bryce Petty threw for 336 and a touchdown and ran for two more as No. 7 Baylor squashed any Cyclone upset hopes early and often in their 49-28 win over Iowa State last Saturday. The final score wasn’t indicative of the reality of the contest, which was this: It was a good old-fashioned butt whoopin’. Unfortunately things don’t get any easier for the ‘Clones this week as they hit the road for a game against No. 21 Oklahoma State. Iowa State quarterback Sam Richardson was a bright spot in the loss to Baylor, throwing for 212 yards and running for an impressive 99 more including a score. Oklahoma State QB Daxx Garman shredded Texas Tech for 370 yards and four TDs in his second start since stepping in for the injured J.W. Walsh. Whoever lines up under center, expect more of the same against ISU. Visions of the 2011 upset of the Cowboys at Jack Trice Stadium may be dancing in a few fans’ heads yet, but they can dream on; this one could get ugly fast.

UNI (2-2) vs. Indiana State (3-1)

When: Saturday, Oct. 4

Where: Memorial Stadium, Terra Haute, Indiana

Kickoff: 2 p.m. CDT

The University of Northern Iowa got back to the .500 mark in convincing fashion with a 50-7 drubbing of Tennessee Tech last weekend. Sawyer Kollmorgen threw for three scores and often-unheralded kicker Michael Schmadeke put five field goals through the uprights in victory. Running back David Johnson ran for another 142 yards for UNI. Northern Iowa has averaged 48 points per game during its current two-game win streak. Indiana State is in the midst of its own roll, having won its previous three games. Quarterback Mike Perish threw for 340 yards and three scores in a 38-19 win over Liberty last week.

No. 21 Nebraska (5-0) vs. No. 9 Michigan State (3-1)

When: Saturday, Oct. 4

Where: Spartan Stadium, East Lansing, Michigan

Kickoff: 7 p.m. CDT

Nebraska’s Ameer Dbdullah rushed for 208 yards and running back Jeremy Langford added 137 in Nebraska’s 45-14 win over Illinois last week. Michigan State wrapped up non-conference play with a 56-14 blitz of Wyoming. The Spartans hope to continue the offensive fireworks as of late in which they’re averaging just more than 50 points per outing, good for third in the nation. The endzone is no stranger to Nebraska either, as the Huskers rank seventh in the nation in points scored and third overall. This could be a great one. CV
