 Peyton Ramsey, Northwestern, Player News


  Peyton Ramsey threw two touchdown passes and No. 19 Northwestern shut down Graham Mertz and No. 10 Wisconsin for a 17-7 victory on Saturday that put the undefeated Wildcats in control of the Big Ten West. Northwestern forced five turnovers - four in the first half - and sacked Mertz three times in its first win over a top-10 team since a 28-25 victory over No. 9 Nebraska on Nov. 5, 2011. Ramsey, a graduate transfer from Indiana, was 23 for 44 for 203 yards, and Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman had four receptions for 95 yards. The Wildcats improved to 5-0 for the first time since 2015.

They also moved to 5-0 in the Big Ten for the first time since 1996. Wisconsin (2-1, 2-1) had committed just one turnover this year, a fumble during a 45-7 victory over Illinois on Oct. 23. The Badgers then had back-to-back games canceled because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the program before rolling to a 49-11 win at Michigan last weekend. Mertz, a redshirt freshman, lost a fumble and threw the first three interceptions of his career against Northwestern. Senior running back Garrett Groshek also lost a fumble in his return after he missed the victory against the Wolverines. The Badgers still managed to stay in the game thanks to their stout defense. But Charlie Kuhbander kicked a 32-yard field goal with 11:35 left, and Northwestern finished off another second-half shutout. The Wildcats have allowed just 10 points in the final two quarters this season. - Northwestern/AP College Football

  Peyton Ramsey threw for 212 yards and three touchdowns, all to Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman, and No. 23 Northwestern beat Purdue 27-20 on Saturday. The Wildcats defense also made two late stops to preserve a fifth straight Big Ten win and the school's first 4-0 start in league play since coach Pat Fitzgerald was still playing in 1996. Purdue (2-1) has lost five straight home games in the series. Ramsey completed 23 of 36 and had one interception but looked as poised and efficient as he did last November when he led Indiana to an overtime victory at Purdue. And he didn't waste any time getting started. An 8-yard TD pass on the opening possession ended Chiaokhiao-Bowman's three-year scoring drought and gave the Wildcats a 7-0 lead. After the teams traded field goals and Aidan O'Connell tossed a tying 40-yard scoring pass to Garrett Miller on fourth-and-1, Ramsey went back to work. He completed all seven passes on the ensuing drive, hooking up with Chiaokhiao-Bowman on an 18-yarder that gave Northwestern a 17-10 halftime lead. - AP College Football

  Peyton Ramsey shook off two interceptions to throw for two touchdowns in the second half, and Northwestern hung on to beat Nebraska 21-13 Saturday after Luke McCaffrey's last-second pass to Wan'Dale Robinson in the end zone fell incomplete. Seven of the previous nine meetings since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011 were decided by seven points or fewer. Six were within a field goal. This was the fourth in a row to come down to the final play of regulation or go to overtime. Nebraska took over at its 8 with 2:14 remaining after Northwestern punted and had a fourth down at the 14 when McCaffrey was unable to connect with Robinson.

The Wildcats (3-0, 3-0 Big Ten) got the ball back with a second left and took a knee to cap yet another tight game with the Cornhuskers (0-2, 0-2). Ramsey threw a 2-yard touchdown to John Raine in the third and a 10-yarder to Riley Lees early in the fourth, making it 21-13. Chris Bergin intercepted Luke McCaffrey near the goal line with about six minutes remaining to preserve the lead. The Wildcats remained unbeaten in their best start since they won their first five games in 2015. They also improved to 3-0 in Big Ten play for the first time since 2000. Ramsey, a graduate transfer from Indiana, settled down after getting intercepted twice by redshirt freshman Myles Farmer in the second quarter. He completed 16 of 27 passes for 169 yards. - AP College Football

  One of the reasons the Wildcats struggled last year (3-9 overall, 1-8 in the Big Ten) was because they couldn't find a quarterback. Hunter Johnson, a transfer from Clemson, was destined to be a star, but got beat out by T.J. Green. who was injured in the first game after completing 6 of his first 10 passes. Johnson's star never shined, completing 50 of 108 passes last year with one touchdown and four interceptions. Peyton Ramsey entered the picture this season, a graduate transfer from Indiana. If Saturday's 43-3 win over Maryland is any indication, it looks like Northwestern found a winner. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder completed 23 of 30 passes for 212 yards on Saturday with one TD. He also rushed for 47 yards and another TD. "Really proud of his performance today," Fitzgerald said after the game. Ramsey was a team captain at Indiana last year and completed 204 of 300 passes for 2,454 yards with 13 touchdowns with just five interceptions. He also started all 12 games for the Hoosiers in 2018, passing for 2,875 yards and 19 TDs. - The Gazette

  Peyton Ramsey threw for 212 yards in his Northwestern debut, Drake Anderson ran for 103 and the Wildcats gave coach Pat Fitzgerald his 100th victory, pounding Maryland 43-3 on Saturday night. Northwestern raced to a 30-3 halftime lead and racked up 537 total yards. It was just the sort of start the Wildcats were seeking after going from playing for the conference championship in 2018 to finishing last in the Big Ten West. Ramsey, a graduate transfer from Indiana, looked comfortable in his new surroundings. He completed 23 of 30 passes and scrambled for a first-quarter touchdown - a promising start for a quarterback who helped lead the Hoosiers to their first eight-win season since 1993 last year.

Anderson had a 37-yard TD run. A.J. Hampton helped set up a touchdown with an interception. Charlie Kuhbander kicked three field goals. And Fitzgerald, by far Northwestern’s winningest coach, got a milestone win to open his 16th season. Maryland opted to start Alabama transfer Taulia Tagovailoa at quarterback over redshirt freshman Lance LeGendre. And he struggled in a big way. Tagovailoa was 14 for 25 for 94 yards and three interceptions. And the Terrapins opened coach Mike Locksley’s second season on a familiar note after losing nine of their final 10 games in 2019. - Northwestern/AP College Football

  After announcing his transfer to Northwestern in March, Ramsey sent a text to every player on the offensive side of the ball to introduce himself. Since then, he has worked out in Cincinnati, including sessions with junior quarterback Andrew Marty and junior tight end Trey Pugh. Every Thursday, Ramsey participates in Zoom meetings led by the quarterbacks. The players go over signals and break into position groups, but they also catch up with each other. "(Relationships) have been the hardest part of all this," Ramsey said. "Not learning the playbook or anything like that."

The quarterback still has 99 days before Northwestern's scheduled start to the 2020 season and the season opener at Michigan State. He still has time to acclimate himself to the new environment, but Ramsey transferred to Northwestern intending to start from the jump. A three-year starter at Indiana, Ramsey threw for 2,454 yards last season, completing 68 percent of his passes. He was named honorable mention on the postseason all-Big Ten team. He brings a track record of success to a Northwestern team whose quarterbacks threw for just 1,404 yards and six touchdowns combined last season. "He fits Northwestern's profile," Bajakian said. "He's tough, smart, athletic, and he's played a lot of football and won a lot of football games. (He) did a good job at Indiana, had been the starter for all or parts of three seasons, so he's a guy that can that can come in here and compete right away and make an immediate impact." - The Daily Northwestern

  Northwestern wasn't the only team that contacted Ramsey the day he entered the transfer portal. Former Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio called Doug Ramsey the week before Dantonio retired. Ramsey also heard from several other Big Ten schools, multiple ACC schools and Washington. But Northwestern left a great first impression. In early February, Bajakian and wide receivers coach Dennis Springer visited Ramsey in Bloomington, Indiana. "Honestly, that was one of the main reasons that I felt so strongly about them and wanted to visit them before I went anywhere else," Ramsey said. Other college football coaches visited Ramsey in Bloomington. But Ramsey scheduled his first visit to Northwestern on March 7, and it wound up being his only visit. - The Daily Northwestern

  Northwestern has another quarterback joining the competition to revive a passing game that was the nation's worst in 2019. Peyton Ramsey, who played in 32 games for Indiana with 23 starts over the last three seasons, announced Monday on Twitter that he is transferring to Northwestern. As a graduate transfer, Ramsey will be eligible to play this fall. He has one season of eligibility remaining. - The Chicago Tribune

  Indiana quarterback Peyton Ramsey has entered his name in the transfer portal, a source confirmed Monday. This is a significant but not unexpected development for the Hoosiers’ quarterback room. Ramsey, the redshirt junior, lost his starting job to redshirt freshman Michael Penix Jr. in the preseason, though he proved to be an invaluable backup throughout the 2019 season and ended up totaling 2,454 yards and 13 touchdowns passing in relief. If he had stayed at IU for the 2020 season, Ramsey could have very well found himself backing up Penix. Instead, the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder can search for a situation where he is more likely to be the starter in his final collegiate season.

Ramsey’s spectacular play in 2019 just adds to a sense of loss. Despite multiple injuries to Penix, the Hoosiers were able to finish the season with the No. 2 pass offense in the Big Ten. Ramsey’s production was especially vital in road wins at Maryland and Nebraska, as well as the season finale at Purdue where he scored the game-winning touchdown in double overtime. On the year, the Hoosiers’ backup surpassed 300 yards passing three times, including a career-high 371 yards at Penn State. Along with his passing production, he was also a daring scrambler, amassing 252 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground. - Indy Star

  Peyton Ramsey threw three touchdown passes and scored on a 1-yard run in the second overtime Saturday to give the Indiana Hoosiers a 44-41 victory at Purdue. The Hoosiers (8-4, 5-4 Big Ten) reclaimed the Old Oaken Bucket after losing two straight in their biggest rivalry. Purdue (4-8, 3-6) rallied from a 28-10 deficit late in the third quarter but only led once — when J.D. Dellinger started the second overtime with a 34-yard field goal to give the Boilermakers a 41-38 lead. But after throwing a 14-yard completion to Peyton Hendershot on third-and-10, Ramsey hurried the Hoosiers to the line of scrimmaged, snapped the ball quickly and kept it himself as his offensive linemen helped push him around the right side and into the end zone.

Teammates mobbed Ramsey, a two-year starter who lost the job in August, following the score. Ramsey finished 23 of 39 with 337 yards and no interceptions, running 19 times for 42 yards while scoring twice. Purdue quarterback Aidan O'Connell forced overtime with a 20-yard TD pass to David Bell and then hooking up with Brycen Hopkins on a 2-point conversion to tie the score with 2:48 left in regulation. O'Connell tied it again at 38 with a 6-yard TD pass to Hopkins on fourth-and-goal to end the first overtime. O'Connell was 28 of 49 for 408 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. - AP College Football

  Indiana players started celebrating before the clock struck zeroes, and as they headed to the locker room they continued to whoop and holler. "We're going bowling," they yelled. Yes, they are. It's not even November, and the Hoosiers have achieved the six wins needed to play in a bowl for the first time since 2016. Leading the way in Saturday's 38-31 win over Nebraska was Peyton Ramsey, the starting quarterback for two years before getting beat out in the preseason. Starting for the third time this season in place of the injured Michael Penix Jr., Ramsey passed for a career-high 351 yards and two touchdowns.

"Being so far from home, being our first time here at Nebraska, it was awesome," Ramsey said. "It was a fun deal and we're going to celebrate it." The Hoosiers certainly did. "You should have seen us in the locker room after the game," said Whop Philyor, who caught 14 passes for 178 yards. "We were going crazy. It was chaos." The Hoosiers (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) won a third straight conference game in the same season for the first time since 1993 and won in Lincoln for the first time since 1959. "It feels pretty stinking good to stand here and answer your questions after a big-time road win," Allen told reporters. "This is a big-time win. It changes a lot for our program." Nebraska (4-4, 2-3) lost its second straight, and second-year coach Scott Frost lamented two turnovers that were converted into touchdowns, breakdowns in pass defense, a missed field goal and poor punt that gave Indiana a short field for a scoring drive. - Indiana/AP College Football

  After losing his job to a freshman, Peyton Ramsey never abandoned the work ethic that enabled him to start 12 games at quarterback for Indiana last year. Ramsey's willingness to be ready at a moment's notice paid off handsomely Saturday for the gritty junior, who threw for 193 yards and a touchdown in a relief role to help the Hoosiers beat Maryland 34-28. Ramsey took over for injured Michael Penix Jr. with 12 minutes left in the second quarter and Indiana ahead 14-7. Showing no small measure of poise, Ramsey exuded calm in the huddle and finesse while running the offense. "I'm just so proud of Patrick Ramsey," coach Tom Allen said. "What an absolutely awesome young man. He was ready to play when called upon. It's been tough on him, but he's the ultimate team player. He proved his value to his teammates today."

Coming off a season in which he threw for 2,875 yards and 19 touchdowns, Ramsey was displaced as the starter by Penix, a redshirt freshman with a dynamic left arm. Instead of moping or seeking a transfer, Ramsey stayed on as a backup and made the best of the situation. "You take a lot of pride in being the guy, so be able to accept that, a lot of guys can't," Allen said. "He chose to stay for this football team. Not just stay, but be prepared every week." Ramsey may not be done as a starter. Allen would not describe any aspect of the injury to Penix except to say, "I'm not sure what next week holds, but I don't think it's a long term thing." It may not matter, because Ramsey looked good behind center after a short period of adjustment. He got a field goal out of his first drive and threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Nick Westbrook before halftime for a 24-21 lead. - Indiana/AP College Football

  Peyton Ramsey threw three touchdown passes and linebacker Cam Jones returned an interception for his first career touchdown Saturday as Indiana rolled past Connecticut 38-3. The Hoosiers (3-1, 0-1 Big Ten) have won 17 of their last 18 nonconference games including all three this season - this one coming a week after a 41-point loss to No. 6 Ohio State. UConn (1-2) lost its 18th consecutive game against a Football Bowl Subdivision foe and it wasn't even close. After the Huskies recovered a fumble on the third play of the game and took a 3-0 lead on a 41-yard field goal everything fell apart. Ramsey immediately answered by leading the Hoosiers on a 75-yard drive that ended with a 12-yard TD pass to Whop Philyor. The Hoosiers made it 10-3 on a 27-yard field goal and took a 17-3 lead late in the first half when Ramsey hooked up with tight end Peyton Hendershot on a 12-yard TD pass.

Not much changed in the second half. When Huskies quarterback Jeff Zergiotis tried to avoid a sack by flipping the ball away left-handed, Jones snatched it out of the air and returned it 44 yards to give the Hoosiers a 24-3 lead. Ramsey made it 31-3 with a 16-yard TD pass to Nick Westbrook for a 31-3 lead late in the third and exited after Stevie Scott closed out the scoring on a 6-yard TD run with 8:47 left. Ramsey was 23 of 27 with 247 yards and one interception. Scott had 21 carries for 97 yards. - Indiana/AP College Football
