Week 4 Big Ten Previews: Welcome to the final week of non-conference

Week 4 is bursting at the seams with 14 games. None have national implications, but all will go a long way in shaping the fortunes of the Big Ten and its postseason hopes. There are just two road games—and they are intriguing: Indiana at Wake Forest and Maryland at West Virginia. And how cool will the BYU at Michigan tilt be? Exactly.

Big Ten links: Indiana's push for 'GameDay,' Big Ten QB updates & more

A grassroots push to get ESPN’s “College GameDay” to Bloomington for Indiana’s Big Ten opener vs. Ohio State has begun. First, the Hoosiers must win at Wake Forest this Saturday. If that happens, Indiana may have a shot—albeit a tiny one–to be epicenter of the college grid world for one day. And that would be amazing. *** The Big Ten has said it wants member schools to play at least one foe from a Power Five league each year. Cool. And, it turns out, some teams not in Power Five leagues would qualify as being “Power Five.” Confused? Don’t fret.

SO much can happen over the next 60 or so days. Point taken. But that won’t stop me from cranking up the hype machine right now. Will both teams make it to 10-0 before meeting? *** Good analysis of the offensive struggles at Minnesota from SBNation. At some point, doesn’t Minnesota have to do something different? I mean, c’mon. The definition of insanity
