RAMBLIN' RECK: Big college, prep football games scheduled this weekend

TERRE HAUTE — Some big football games are on the schedule this week in both the college and high school ranks.

In the Missouri Valley Football Conference, Indiana State and Northern Iowa share first place with 2-0 records. They’ll meet Saturday evening in the UniDome.

The Sycamores are 4-1 — losing only to Penn State — and the Panthers are 3-1, losing only to Iowa State.

UNI has not lost many conference games at home. This week would be good time for that to happen.

In Illinois, Marshall and Casey both are undefeated and ranked in the Class 2A polls. The Warriors were third last week while the Lions were seventh.

They’ll meet Friday night at Bush Stadium in Marshall and it should be as full as it can be for the action.

Casey takes a 45-game winning streak in regular-season games into the contest. Palestine-Hutsonville was the last team to beat the Warriors in 2006.

Neither team has had a close game this season. One of Casey’s victories was 48-0 over a Vincennes Lincoln team after the Alices had beaten a very good Jasper team.

In Indiana, Linton and North Central could meet in another biggie next week in the final game of the regular season.

Neither team has lost a game and both will be favored to win this week, Linton meeting Union and North Central taking on Wood Memorial.

So if they win as expected this week, they’ll be unbeaten for their game that will decide the Southwest Seven Conference title and decide which team is unbeaten and which finishes 8-1.

In a battle of ranked unbeatens last week, No. 1 Warren Central nipped No. 2 Carmel 22-20, kicking a field goal in the final seconds of the game played in Lucas Oil Stadium.

In last week’s USA Today prep poll, Warren Central was 15th nationally and second in the Midwest Region. Carmel was sixth in the Midwest.

Castle remained unbeaten with a 49-13 victory over Evansville Harrison.

In the Big Ten this week, Nebraska and Ohio State will meet this week for the first time in a conference game after both lost their openers.

The Cornhuskers ran into the powerful Wisconsin Badgers at Madison and the Buckeyes fell at home to Michigan State.

Illinois, meanwhile, rallied to remain unbeaten and go 1-0 in the Big Ten. The Illini are at Indiana this week.
