Best of Week 1: Stay up late to catch NU at Cal

Every season teems with promise. But this one glimmers a bit more brightly for the Big Ten, as No. 2 Ohio State looks primed to make a run at the BCS national championship. And several other schools dot the preseason polls, like Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Northwestern. The Big Ten has a full slate of action for the opening week, with all 12 schools in action. There are five games vs. the MAC– Michigan (Central Michigan), Iowa (Northern Illinois), Wisconsin (UMass), Ohio State (Buffalo) and Michigan State (Western Michigan). But beware: The MAC has twice as many wins against the

Dienhart: Ohio State tops preseason power poll

The analysis, opinion, conjecture, speculation and anticipation are almost finished. Real, live football kicks off Thursday, with Minnesota hosting UNLV and Indiana entertaining Indiana State. Both games air at 7 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go. Each week, I will rank the Big Ten teams 1-12. This is the first edition of my Power Poll, presented by ArcelorMittal.

Dienhart: Iowa names Jake Rudock starting QB

The wait is over: Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz named sophomore Jake Rudock the starting quarterback today. No surprise. Rudock has been running with the first-team throughout training camp and has looked the best among the competition, which also includes redshirt freshman C.J. Beathard and junior Cody Sokol—who began his career at a junior college. Rudock is perceived to be a safe choice, the signal-caller with an OK arm who knows the offense best—and is the least likely to commit a catastrophic mistake. Beathard may have the best arm of the bunch, but he’s prone to mistakes. [ RELATED: Dienhart: Myriad

Dienhart: Best of the 2013 BTN Football Tour

After 15 nights in 12 hotels and 12 cities, stretching from Lincoln, Neb., to State College, Pa., the BTN bus has come to a stop. It was a fun ride, visiting all the Big Ten schools to watch practices. It was the BTN crew’s last chance to kick the tires on each team before the start of the 2013 season. I ate a lot of fast food and drank a lot of Red Bull while traveling the interstates of this great nation. I chowed on Arby’s on I-80; enjoyed Wendy’s on I-94; grubbed on Subway on I-70. Along the way,

In anticipation of the upcoming season, the Big Ten Network surveyed Americans to find out how and where they like to watch college football.
