Minnesota probably won't feel great about needing a last-second field goal to beat struggling Rutgers at home. But that win could wind up being crucial for Tracy Claeys if he's being evaluated in his first year as the full-time coach by his ability to get the Gophers into a bowl game. Minnesota is now 5-2, and while it will obviously need to play better, it is also still alive in the Big Ten West Division.

Wisconsin escapes with a 17-9 victory against Iowa to take back the Heartland Trophy and set up a huge game next week against Nebraska. Badgers running back Corey Clement was a workhorse today, carrying 35 times for 134 yards with a touchdown. He overcame a goal line fumble late in the first half and scored in the second half to give Wisconsin a 14-6 lead. Iowa's offense couldn't get much rolling against a stellar Badgers defense, which allowed only 236 yards of total offense.

Stanford's offense showing at least some signs of regaining its identity. On that 14-play, 66-yard FG drive, the Cardinal did a good job setting up manageable third downs with an effective run game. That's Stanford's key.

Touchdown Texas with 46 seconds to play. It sure could have used that field goal on the previous possession. The Longhorns, down 24-21, will need to get the onside kick, obviously.
