Last Saturday we posted a page with video clips of ten Big Ten football plays on it, one for each of the schools playing that day. Then we let fans rate any and all of the plays all week long right up until kickoff of the next games. In fact, if you missed the feature you can still rate the plays right here. Good news: We’re going to do this again for every football weekend left in the season, including the Dec. 3 Big Ten Championship. Right now, Iowa’s Tanner Miller has the highest-rated play. Watch it here.
On the next Big Ten Football Report on Friday at 7 p.m. ET we roll out the red carpet for our Big Ten football coaches as we prepare for Saturday’s Big Ten slate. Our own Mike Hall chats with Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema, Michigan’s Brady Hoke, and Minnesota’s Jerry Kill and checks in with Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz and Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald. On top of all of that, the show will air a great feature on Joe Paterno and the 10th anniversary of the Penn State coach Bear Bryant’s coaching victory record. Watch a preview video clip here.
The University of Iowa women’s soccer team battled through regulation and into overtime Thursday night in Lincoln, but the efforts were not enough as the team fell to the Cornhuskers, 1-0. Iowa (11-4-2, 3-4-2) allowed a late goal with 1:04 remaining in the first overtime period. Watch now as Morgan Marlborough talks after she scored the winning goal during sudden death for Nebraska.
Wednesday was a busy night for Big Ten volleyball. Several of the conference’s top teams were in action including top-ranked Illinois who faced Northwestern. The Illini’s perfect season is still in tact following a straight set win over the Wildcats (25-19, 25-23, 25-19). Watch a Student U wrap-up of the action now and jump inside for more coverage of No. 4 Nebraska facing Iowa, Indiana’s visit to Purdue and much more.
A day ago, Brent Yarina released his Preseason Top 10 Player Rankings and Preview in preparation for Tuesday night’s Hoops Hysteria show. Today, it’s time for the preseason power rankings. Every week during the hoops season, Brent posts his latest rankings. As a reminder, the rankings are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply Brent’s thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands at the end of each week. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina. Watch Tom Izzo’s entertaining Midnight Madness entrance now and check out Brent’s rankings in this post.
