Time to go through my mail. I look at Michigan State’s offensive line, project Penn State’s record and look at “The Game,” among other things. So, let’s get started! Last year, the Spartans were good, and made it to the playoffs with just one loss. But they struggled against Western Michigan, Purdue, Rutgers and Maryland.

And don’t forget about Ohio State’s Raekwon McMillan, who will give Walker a run for his money as the Big Ten’s primo linebacker. If not Walker or McMillan, how about Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers, who is a newbie to the position.
Michigan State is establishing a scholarship fund in honor of Mike Sadler. Some compare the 2016 Buckeyes to the 2014 Buckeyes, Iowa's working on a contract extension with Kirk Ferentz. More stories in Thursday's news digest.
