Best of Week 3: Nebraska's trip to Miami earns top billing

Not a lot of “wow” factor in Week 3, with Nebraska’s trip to Miami (Fla.) earning top billing. These programs battled for the national title three times, after the 1983, 1994 and 2001 seasons. Alas, neither program is of that ilk at the moment—no Tom Osborne, no Howard Schnellenberger, no Dennis Erickson … no legit national title dreams. Still, it will be a fun trip to south Florida for the Cornhuskers, who can send a message with a convincing win under first-year coach Mike Riley. Pitt’s trip to Iowa will be a good measuring stick for Kirk Ferentz’s crew, which

Which first-year Big Ten coach wins the most games in 2015?

Which first-year Big Ten coach will win the most games in 2015: Nebraska’s Mike Riley, Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst or Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh? Each is off to a 1-1 start this season. And each coach teems with promise and potential. I asked some leading college football media members what they thought. Read what they told me. Bill Bender, Sporting News: Paul Chryst. Look at the schedule. No Ohio State, Michigan State or even Michigan. The Badgers’ schedule is set up for at least nine wins; maybe more if they can win at Nebraska and Minnesota.

Dienhart: 'Bizarre and surreal' start to season continues at Rutgers

The tumult continues at Rutgers in what has been a bizarre and surreal start to the 2015 season. Kyle Flood has been suspended for three games and fined $50,000 following a university-led investigation into rules violations, Rutgers president Robert Barchi announced Wednesday afternoon.

Big Ten links: NU-Duke trash talk, vintage RU-PSU gallery & more

Trash talk? Between Northwestern and Duke? This is sweet. You know what they say: If you live long enough, you’ll see everything. Turns out Wildcats DE Ifeadi Odenigbo said he expects NU to shutout Duke. Blue Devils RB Shaun Wilson fired back on Twitter. So far this season, Northwestern has allowed just six points (two field goals), while Duke has averaged 46 in its first two contests. The Blue Devils have been held scoreless just once under head coach David Cutcliffe. I actually can’t wait for this game! *** I am a sucker for nostalgia. So, that’s why I pass

Big Ten links: Michigan State praise, Shane Morris & much more

Great read from Lee Barfknecht of Omaha.com, who wonders why more fuss isn’t being made nationally over Michigan State. I am as miffed as he is. Barfknecht wonders what else Michigan State must do to get onto college football’s main marquee. Check the trophy wins the past three seasons. The Spartans handed Urban Meyer his first loss in 25 games at Ohio State in the 2013 Big Ten championship game. The Buckeyes were No. 2 at the time. Then MSU toppled No. 5 Stanford in the Rose Bowl. During the 2014 regular season, Michigan State led both national title game

So, can the Big Ten get two playoff teams this season?

The first leaf hasn’t fallen off a tree yet, but it’s never too early for some playoff speculation. More specifically: Can the Big Ten get two teams—Ohio State and Michigan State--into the four-team playoff? Sure. It could happen. Myriad possibilities still loom for a lot of schools and leagues.
