QUOTE OF THE WEEK This is something I’ve pictured over and over again, I just have to give credit to the guys for putting me in that position. They made it a nice, makeable field goal for me. Purdue senior Spencer Evans after hitting the game-winning field goal over No. 16 Iowa

TEAM OF THE WEEK: MICHIGAN WOLVERINES As the season starts to hit the home-stretch, results propel some teams forward and shatter the hopes of others. One team that boosted its position as a contender was Michigan, as the Wolverines crushed No. 14 Penn State, 42-7, at home. The Wolverines hit the gas pedal and never looked back, scoring 42 unanswered points before the Nittany Lions scored with only 2 minutes left in the game. Michigan’s running game was electric, rushing for three touchdowns and 259 yards, while the defense forced three turnovers. No. 4 Michigan will head to Rutgers next week.

FIESTA BOWL CHARITIES For nearly 70 years, the Franciscan Renewal Center has been renewing lives to those who need it, regardless of race, religion or wealth. They do this through the many programs they offer like legal or spiritual counseling, support groups and their retreats that help people deal with grief, whether it be the loss of a child or a veteran returning from war dealing with the mental and moral scars from it. The Franciscan Renewal Center doesn’t reject anyone due to a lack of funds or if they aren’t of the same religion, the sign in the front of their building speaks for them: “All are Welcome.” To help fund their programs and their facilities, Fiesta Bowl Charities gave Franciscan Renewal Center a grant during the 2018-19 grant cycle.
