The Big Ten Conference released its weekly Wrestler of the Week honor Tuesday. The third honor of the season went to Minnesota’s Kevin Steinhaus, who helped the Gophers upset reigning national champ Penn State. See what else he did to earn the award in this post.
(Huskers.com) Nebraska continued to show a tenacious defense and a balanced offense on its way to a 70-50 win over Savannah State on Monday at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. With the victory, Nebraska improved to 4-0 on the season, while Savannah State slipped to 3-1 with its first loss of the year. The Huskers, who entered the game allowing just 48.7 points per game through the first three contests, held the Lady Tigers to just 18 first-half points to carry a 38-18 lead into the locker room at the break.

The bowl picture is firming up, but the Big Ten may feel a squeeze if it gets 10 bowl eligible teams, as the conference has just eight bowl slots guaranteed. A win by Purdue at Indiana would give the league 10 bowl eligible squads, meaning the Big Ten would need other leagues to fail to have enough bowl eligible teams to accommodate all of their schools.
