It was a busy afternoon of Big Ten football action, with six games during the middle block. The results weren’t exactly what the Big Ten had hoped for, either, as it went 3-3 after opening the day 2-1 in the early games. Read my snap reactions to the afternoon games in this post.
Steele Jantz threw for 241 yards and the game’s only touchdown on Saturday and Iowa State beat Iowa 9-6 for its first win in Iowa City in 10 years. Jake Knott‘s interception with 1:11 left sealed the win for the Cyclones (2-0), whose defense held Iowa to just 304 yards of offense.
Big Ten Field Pass on BTN2Go kicked off last week from Ohio State, and it was a blast. What is the Field Pass? One hour before a selected BTN Big Ten football game this season, we’ll 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 BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart, the crew will be joined by Purdue’s Danny Hope and Nebraska’s Bo Pelini. Also, our BTN experts are taking your questions on Twitter. Just tweet us using #AskBTN all day today.
