Best of Week 14: Rivalry Week should be great

It’s rivalry week, and there are a lot of intriguing storylines and angles in what also is the final week of the 2013 regular season.

Tuesday links: Updates on Heisman, Hoke & more

It’s Tuesday, two days until Thanksgiving. Until then, feast on a Heisman race that got turned sideways last Saturday with losses by Texas A&M (Johnny Manziel), Baylor (Bryce Petty) and Oregon (Marcus Mariota). And Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has a potentially murky future due to legal issues. Could Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller get back into the race? notes Miller won’t win the honor. That’s correct. Missing almost three games has killed that dream. But, he could earn an invite to NYC. If the Buckeyes finish 12-0, I think Miller should be a top 3-5 finisher. I may

Tom's Take: My Week 13 grades, honors & stocks

Week 13 brought clarity to the Big Ten season, as Ohio State (Leaders) and Michigan State (Legends) wrapped up division titles and will meet in the Big Ten championship game. We also saw Penn State and Nebraska play an overtime thriller, as well as Illinois end a 20-game Big Ten losing skein. Here is my wrap on Week 13.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 13

Week 13 saw Michigan State (Legends) and Ohio State (Leaders) wrap up their division to set up the 2013 Big Ten title game that I think we all can be excited about. But there were many other things I learned on Saturday. Check it out. [ MORE: Get Tom’s Week 13 honors, grades, stock reports & more ] 1.
