No changes at the top of my bowl projections this week with Nebraska and Michigan taking care of business, and Wisconsin and Northwestern being off. But the “lower-tier” bowls are in flux.
It’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. There are a couple of names making their debut on this week’s list, and both play in Columbus, Ohio. What other movement was there? Find out in this post.
Coaches will go to extreme measures to pump up their players. We saw a perfect example of it prior to Saturday afternoon’s Penn State-Purdue football game. There, on the sideline of Ross-Ade Stadium, Penn State strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald took off his shirt and did a belly flop, of sorts, to get his players excited. It seemed to work, as Penn State cruised 34-9. Watch Fitzgerald in action now.

Here’s a hypothetical for Big Ten fans: Which Big Ten quarterback would you want leading your team on a final drive? BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina discussed the topic a few weeks ago, and here were their answers. Plenty has changed since then, though, so we posed the question to our “Football Report” analysts Monday night. Watch their answers in this video.
Just three weeks remain in the regular season, as schools continue to jockey for division championships and bowl eligibility.
The Big Ten scored 33 touchdowns in five Week 10 games. Every Saturday during the action, BTN.com video editors clip each touchdown and post it to our video archive. And now for your viewing pleasure, we’ve merged every score into a single video clip. Watch all the touchdowns, including the nine scored in Ohio State’s victory over Illinois, in this post.
We’re going to try something new this year. Instead of just previewing every team like we usually do, we’ll give the people what they really want—ammunition to win arguments. So for every team, we’ll have both sides of the debate covered. Today, we’ll look at what we can expect from Michigan State after it loses its leader, Draymond Green.
