Bowl Projections: Ohio State down to Rose Bowl

I’m finally gonna acquiesce to the notion that Ohio State faces a challenge to get to the BCS title game. Yes, the Buckeyes have a great shot to go unbeaten. But that may not be enough for OSU to finish No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings, as teams like Alabama, Oregon and Clemson are primed to likely finish ahead of Ohio State if they remain unbeaten. So, I’m moving the Buckeyes from the BCS title game to the Rose Bowl. [ MORE: Power Rankings | Week 7 grades & honors | What did Tom learn? |

Power Rankings: Wisconsin makes big leap

Another week, more changes to my power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Wisconsin, Nebraska and Michigan State were the big winners, as the Badgers went from No. 4 to No. 2, the Cornhuskers from No. 5 to No. 3 and the Spartans from No. 6 to No. 4. Penn State is also up. Week Seven wasn’t so kind to Northwestern, which dropped from No. 2 to No. 6. [ MORE: Dienhart: Penn State-Michigan game was one for the ages ] POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State (6-0, 2-0).

Audio: Listen to your Big Ten coach's teleconference

Each Tuesday morning during the Big Ten football season, the 12 Big Ten football coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio for each segment of the call here, and we do this every Tuesday afternoon.

Dienhart: There's talk of a football federation

This should get your attention on a Tuesday morning in early October. Interesting meetings going on at Big Ten headquarters, where league officials and conference athletic directors are discussing a possible football federation. Scott Dochterman of the Cedar Rapids Gazette says it’s possible the new football structure and rules could be voted upon at the annual NCAA convention Jan. 15-18, 2014 in San Diego. “Northern Iowa and Iowa, for example, we might vote similarly for basketball, for wrestling,” Iowa A.D. Gary Barta said. “But there might be certain things in the sport of football because of the size and scope

Bowl Projections: Indiana in, Minnesota out this week

Ohio State showed moxie and toughness in fighting back from a fourth-quarter deficit to win at Northwestern. That big victory comes a week after an impressive triumph vs. Wisconsin. Add it up, and the Buckeyes are 6-0 and still sitting in good position to advance to the BCS title game. Despite the loss, I still have Northwestern in the Rose. But, I wouldn’t be shocked if Nebraska is able to claim that spot by the end of the season. Michigan State is another team that may out-play the Gator Bowl slot I currently have the Spartans in. Indiana is back

Which highlights made our Week 6 top 10 plays?

Week 6 featured plenty of highlight-reel plays. There was something for everyone, too. There was a successful fake punt, there was a punt blocked for a touchdown, there was a long pick-6, and there was a phenomenal leaping, one-handed grab. Relive our Week 6 top 10 plays in this post.

Power Rankings: OSU bolsters case for top spot

Six weeks are in the books, and Ohio State still sits atop my Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But pecking order behind the Buckeyes remains in flux as schools continue to jockey to ride shotgun with Ohio State. The big winners this week: Michigan State and Indiana, who happen to also play this Saturday. Here are my power rankings.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 6

My grandfather always told me to learn at least one thing every day. Well, he would be proud of me, because I didn’t learn just one thing on Saturday—I learned 10 during the first full Saturday of Big Ten action. Have a look at the knowledge I acquired.

Tom's Take: My Week 6 honors, grades, top 10 & more

The first Saturday of full-blown Big Ten action was filled with highs and lows, culminating with a pulsating 40-30 Ohio State victory over Northwestern that kept alive the Buckeyes’ national title dreams. Michigan State made a statement with a big win at Iowa, Indiana notched a signature win for Kevin Wilson, Nebraska had perhaps its best effort of the season, and Michigan posted a strong win after a couple shaky efforts. Here’s is a look at Week 6. Biggest surprise: Indiana. The game vs. Penn State may have been a must-win as far as getting to a bowl. And, the

How did we do? Week 6 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 7, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 6 Big Ten predictions. Sean Merriman went 4-1 to lead the way, while Big Ten fans and the rest of our panel went 3-2. That means it’s Merriman and Big Ten fans tied atop the standings, at 46-9.
