TIGERS WIN! 1-0. They got their first hit in the 9th inning. Sanchez – no hitter thru 6 innings (he threw 116 pitches). He had 12 strikeouts and 6 walks. Sanchez with FOUR STRIKEOUTS in the first inning. A record! Penn State wins 43-40 in FOUR overtimes! Exciting game, big 4th down conversion by Penn. St. Spartans knocked off Indiana this afternoon. Central won at Ohio, 26-23, but Western got skunked 33-0 by Buffalo. Notre Dame had a bye week. My Badgers had an easier time than expected with Northwestern, winning 35-6. The Detroit Lions head to Cleveland for the usual 1 PM start. Cleveland has won 3 in a row. I see Suh is 100K poorer. NASCAR stopped in Charlotte NC. Finally, an interesting article on how President Teddy Roosevelt helped to promote football in the early days.
