(AP / WEHT) – Here are some Midwest games that happened we think you should keep your eye out for:

Indiana [7 – 29] Michigan (FINAL)
The No. 9 Wolverines gave away a 16-point lead to in-state rival Michigan State on Saturday in a 37-33 defeat, their first loss of the season. Michigan will need to recover by this Saturday night, when they host unranked Indiana.

Tennessee [45 – 42] Kentucky (FINAL)
No. 18 Kentucky and Tennessee resume their border rivalry looking to halt two-game losing streaks. The Volunteers had a bye after consecutive losses against then-No. 13 Mississippi (31-26) and at then-No. 4 Alabama (52-24).

Navy [6 – 34] Notre Dame (FINAL)
It was Notre Dame’s fourth straight victory in the series that began in 1927 but was interrupted last year by the COVID-19 pandemic. Notre Dame has an 80-13-1 lead in the series that will continue at least through 2032.

Michigan State [29 – 40] Purdue (FINAL)
Brohm pulled off a rare feat by beating two top-five teams in the same season. The last time the Boilermakers did that was in 1960, when they topped Ohio State and Minnesota. With three games left, they are tied atop the West Division with Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Iowa [17 – 12] Northwestern (FINAL)
The Hawkeyes need to get more from an offense that struggled to score, though the defense did its job.

Wisconsin [52 – 3] Rutgers (FINAL)
Graham Mertz threw a season-high three touchdown passes and Wisconsin won its fifth straight game and become bowl eligible for the 20th straight year with a 52-3 victory over Rutgers on Saturday.

Illinois [14 – 6] Minnesota (FINAL)
This wasn’t quite as significant as the win at Penn State but an encouraging development nonetheless in the first year under Bielema, another sign the Illini can win with the power running and complementary defense he employed in the previous decade with the Badgers.

Ohio State [26 -17] Nebraska (FINAL)
The Buckeyes played an uninspired second half of offense but held on to avoid their first loss to a team with a losing record since 2011.
