A big day for Northwestern's Justin Jackson, who became the school's all-time leading rusher after a 171-yard performance in a win at Maryland. Jackson broke Damien Anderson's record and now has 4,468 career rushing yards.

Penn State nearly recorded its third shutout but still rode an excellent defensive performance to a 31-7 win over Northwestern. Heisman Trophy candidate Saquon Barkley had a quiet day other than 53-yard run but QB Trace McSorley was good in a pass-heavy game plan. A pathetic showing by Northwestern's offense on its home field.

Northwestern middle linebacker Paddy Fisher is ejected for targeting after a late hit on Penn State QB Trace McSorley. He'll sit out the first half next week at Maryland, too.
