Best of Week 7: De facto Leaders title game?

This isn’t a great weekend for games, especially with Nebraska and Penn State off. And the league’s two best teams appear to be in mismatches, with Michigan hosting Illinois and Ohio State visiting Indiana. But there are three games with some intrigue. Wisconsin’s visit to Purdue will go a long way in shaping a muddled Leaders Division race. The winner figures to have pole position to earn the division’s spot in the Big Ten title game with Ohio State and Penn State on NCAA probation and ineligible. Northwestern’s visit to Minnesota lost some juice when the Wildcats suffered their first

Power Rankings: Wolverines moving on up

How about them Wolverines? Michigan went into West Lafayette and dominated a pretty good Purdue team Saturday afternoon.

Find out in this post. Disagree? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below or tweet me (@BTNTomDienhart). 1. Ohio State (6-0, 2-0). After muzzling Michigan State last week on the road with a great defensive effort and then clubbing red-shot Nebraska with an offensive explosion in a 63-38 victory,

Dienhart: What I learned in Week 6

And then there was one. With its impressive victory over Nebraska on Saturday, coupled with Northwestern’s loss at Penn State, Ohio State is the Big Ten’s final unbeaten team. At 6-0, the Buckeyes are cruising. Up next: at Indiana. The Buckeyes were the biggest story Saturday, but what else did I learn from the Week 6 action? Find out in this post. 1. Michigan is ready to roll. Yes, the Wolverines had some rough spots in the non-conference going 2-2. Who can forget the losses to Alabama and Notre Dame? But Michigan impressed in demolishing Purdue, 44-13. And the lifting
