College Football Week 7

Any chance Luke Fickell had to keep his coaching job in Columbus, Ohio walked off the field in Lincoln, Nebraska. The interim coach for the Buckeyes surrendered a 27-6 lead in the 3rd quarter to the Cornhuskers and lost 34-27. Fickell may be in a "no-win" situation with his job as he continues to fight with his Ohio State team on and off the field.

Game of the week in the Big Ten is Michigan at Michigan State. It is an exciting week of sports in the state as baseball's Tigers play for a chance in the World Series. The NFL Lions are undefeated and off to their best start in years, and an undefeated Wolverine squad goes on the road against their in-state rival, "little-brother," and one-loss Spartans. During the last few years under former head coach, Rich Rodriguez, the Wolverines have started fast only to lose down the stretch and maintain enough wins to become bowl-eligible. First year head coach Brady Hoke is determined not to let that happen and a win this week will help erase doubts from Michigan fans.
