>> i told them that i appreciated what they did and it was good to find a way to win. it is hard to win. i appreciate that, and certainly there are areas where we can get better. >> i wanted to get us out of that jam we were in and win the game for all the guys. it was not what we expected. >> we dan: up next for the badgers a , trip to east lansing to face 12th ranked michigan state, and wisconsin will be the underdog. tonight in south bend, they did barely hold on to beat 18th ranked notre dame. tyler o'connor to donnie corley on the bomb. former beaver dam star r.j. shelton scores here on the reverse. michigan state beats notre dame 36-28. here's some advice for barry alvarez, do not schedule north dakota state. the bison, an fcs school, went
ranked iowa today for their sixth straight win over an fbs school. m.j. stumpf with the interception return for six. then as time expired, cam pederson booted a 37-yard field goal to give north dakota state a 23-21 upset win over iowa. fifth ranked clemson pulverized south carolina state, but one of their touchdowns was a freebie. watch this. ahmad harris catches the kickoff in the end zone, then flips the ball to the ref. one problem, harris forgot to take a knee. it clemson pounced on it for a touchdown. the tigers went on to win 59-0. two defensive starters for the vikings, shariff floyd and xavier rhodes, will not play against the packers tomorrow, but sam shields has officially been ruled out for the packers. green bay's top corner is still in concussion protocol following the fifth documented head trauma of his nfl career. shields missed more than a month last year after his last concussion.
on our team. if he is not out there, the next man in. the coach preaches that all the time. a young guy steps in and we are all there to help him out. we will get him lined up. dan: the vikings offense never found the end zone in their season-opening win over teannessee, and as always, shutting down adrian peterso will be the key for the packers. peterson was held to just 31 yards on 19 carries last sunday. >> i am just ampped up to feel the energy per that's what i'm looking for to the most, feeling the energy. dan: and home run derby at , wrigley field today as the brewers pounded the cubs. ryan braun was the main bomber. his two-run homer off jake arrieta in the sixth gave the brewers a 4-3 lead.
another two run homer. that's 30 for the season for braun, who drove in five runs today. but the brewers were just warming up. later in the eighth domingo , santana crushes a solo homer that ended up clearing the bleachers and landed on waveland avenue. and in the ninth, chris carter hit a bomb off the scoreboard for a grand slam. it was estimated at 438 feet, . that is not long enough. the brewers beat the cubs 11-3. tomorrow. >> you know what i'm still thinking about? dan: adrian peterson place for the vikings. >> lindsay will be here to update the forecast when we come back.
