Big Ten Field Pass on BTN2Go kicked off last week from Ohio State in Week 1 and Iowa in Week 2. Now for Week 3 we roll it out from Michigan. What exactly is the Field Pass? One hour before a selected BTN Big Ten football game this season, we turn on a BTN camera at the home team’s football stadium for a live video feed to show you how a home crowd and stadium gets ready for a game.
On tonight’s “Football Report” at 7 p.m. ET with Mike Hall, Tony Banks, Rosevelt Colvin and Tom Dienhart, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer joins the crew for an interview as the 2-0 Buckeyes’ prepare to take on visiting Cal on Saturday. Also in our one-hour show we get the latest reports from around the conference.
Football season is off to a roaring start as we all get back into the comfortable rhythms of autumn where Saturdays are scheduled around kickoffs. But while fans head to the stadium or watch games on TV, a growing number of fans subscribe to our various video podcasts. Now during football season this is a great way for you to get in-game highlights from BTN TV games delivered right to your device.
Week 3 games are almost here and I take one last weekday spin around today’s headlines in this post. What do people think about Nebraska’s defense? Why does Minnesota have to watch out? And how can Fitz Toussaint regain his form? Also, if you’re interested, my game previews are over here.
Every week, I rank the Big Ten’s slate of games. Where does your team’s Week 3 game fall on my list? Find out in this post. Remember, on gameday, BTN.com editors provide Rapid Recaps with quarterly updates from every game. And at the end of each game, I post my Saturday Snap Reactions.

Wow. Last week didn’t go so well. It was a not a pretty scene, as we sat, mouths agape, in the BTN green room and watched the Big Ten Conference suffer through a difficult Saturday. And that wasn’t just because Gerry DiNardo was drooling. Sorry, too easy. Not true. Though he did pull out his ubiquitous hankie a few times.

Week 2 was a rough one. Not only did the Big Ten lose six non-conference games for the first time since 2000, it went 1-6 against BCS teams. Of the half-dozen teams that lost, which enters Week 3 with the most sense of urgency? BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina debate that topic in this post.
