This week’s guest list for The Big Ten Football Report at 7 p.m. ET includes: Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, Illinois offensive coordinator Paul Petrino, Wisconsin running back Montee Ball and Nebraska radio football color commentator Matt Davison. We’ll also welcome into the studio BTN LiveBIG host Dhani Jones, who will breakdown the matchup between the Spartans’ defense and the Cornhuskers’ offense.
Co-hosts Tony Banks and Rosevelt Colvin will also tackle each game, starting with Michigan State vs Nebraska. Banks examines Kirk Cousins’ progression from earlier in the year while Colvin looks at Nebraska defense against Minnesota without Jared Crick.
Wisconsin vs Ohio State: Banks breaks down what Boom Herron brought to the Ohio State offense; Colvin will compare the Badgers’ offense when Ball is in and when James White is in.
Illinois vs Penn State: Banks puts the spotlight on Penn State linebacker Gerald Hodges, who won this week’s Big Ten defensive player of the week. Colvin at why Illinois offense has sputtered the last two weeks.
Purdue vs Michigan: Purdue is spreading the ball around to lots of people on offense, says Banks. Colvin explains how Denard Robinson was stifled at Michigan State and what that means for this week.
