WHEN: 3:30 p.m.

"We're really up against it," Cosgrove said. "We know that. But it's exciting to be able to do this. We're going to commit ourselves to doing it as well as possible ... and our mind-set is to go out and win."

SATURDAY'S GAME-CHANGING PLAY came late in the second quarter when wide receiver Damarr Aultman and Wasilewski both recognized a Bryant blitz on first down, after the quarterback had connected with slot receiver John Ebeling for a 14-yard gain.

"We talked about it because it happened on the drive before," Wasilewski said. "We expected it again, got it, corrected ourselves and got a big play out of it."

Indeed, Aultman caught the quick slant and ran 51 yards behind good downfield blocking for the touchdown that cut Bryant's lead to 14-12. An Eastman interception less than a minute later set up a 16-yard Wasilewski touchdown pass to Derrick Johnson and the Black Bears never trailed again.

Wasilewski also threw scoring passes to tight end Justin Perillo and wide receiver Jordan Dunn, a redshirt freshman.

TELEVISION COVERAGE of the Maine-Northwestern game will be limited to the Big Ten Network, which can be found on Channel 439 on the Dish Network, 610 on DIRECTV and 470 or 592 (HD) on Time Warner Cable.
