Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby is the second Big Ten player, and the second Big Ten player in as many weeks, to be ejected for targeting. Roby was booted after a jarring first-quarter hit on Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz in Saturday’s 34-24 victory. A week ago, Nebraska cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste was tossed for the same rule.

At halftime of the Purdue-Michigan State on Saturday afternoon, the Boilermakers’ marching band put on a performance that caught our attention. Motorcycle enthusiasts will find it interesting, too. Yes, the band formed a motorcycle, and it even included “exhaust” for when it moved across the field. It was really cool, and you can watch it below.
