Penn State (3-1, 0-0) Indiana (2-2, 0-0) – noon ET, BTN/BTN2Go Why you should watch: Each team should be well-rested coming off a bye week.

Listen to your Big Ten football coach

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. Also, @B1Gfootball spotlights a tweet or three from each coach on the call live on Twitter in case you want to follow along online.

Player Rankings: See who makes first list of 2013

I’ve said it several times: College football polls shouldn’t come out until at least October. You know, until we see what the teams look like and how they perform against quality competition. Well, with the calendar flipped to October, that means we’ve seen enough football to also consider other things. Like, for example, player rankings. View my first Big Ten player rankings of the season in this post. 1. Ohio State quarterbacks. Braxton Miller or Kenny Guiton, it doesn’t matter. The duo has combined to win the last three Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week awards, and it has

Bowl projections: Where is your team this week?

It’s never too early to make postseason plans, right? Yes, it is. Well, forget all of that and play along with me in my weekly bowl projections. It’s fun to play make-believe! Iowa was the biggest mover in my weekly bowl prognostications, as I now have the Hawkeyes in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, where they would play Baylor. Minnesota fell to the Little Caesar’s Bowl—if it is able to reach bowl eligibility, which could be difficult. In the end, the Big Ten may have difficulty filling all of its bowl slots. Penn State is ineligible, while Indiana and Purdue

Power Rankings: Surging Iowa shoots up list

With six schools off and just four games that featured no upsets, there was little movement in my weekly Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Iowa was the biggest winner, jumping three spots from No. 9 to No. 6. Conversely, Minnesota fell like a rock from No. 6 to No. 10. Here is my latest Power Poll.

Braxton Miller looked impressive in his first action since early in the second game of the season. This team

Debate It: Who will win the Legends Division?

Each week during the season, BTN.com web editor Sean Merriman and a featured guest will debate a topic related to Big Ten football. This week, Nebraska beat writer Brian Rosenthal and I debate the following question: “Heading into Week 5 of the college football season, which team is your favorite to win the Legends Division”? Our answers may surprise you… [ MORE: Enter the Buffalo Wild Wings Trip to the Football Championship Sweepstakes ] Sean: This is the burning question on every Big Ten fan’s mind right now. I can say that all six teams have a legitimate chance at

Dienhart: Trying to sort out wide open Legends Division

The season is four weeks old, and I’m not sure who is going to win the Legends Division. True, the race looked muddled before the season began, with pundits typically tabbing Michigan or Nebraska to take the banner. But, cases also could have been made for Northwestern and Michigan State. Conversely, the Leaders Division looks like a two-team race between Ohio State and Wisconsin. Now? Heck, you seemingly could argue that all six teams in the division have a shot as the calendar prepares to flip from September to October. Here is a look at the good and bad for

What's wrong with Michigan's Devin Gardner?

Michigan fans know it all too well. Devin Gardner is in a funk, and it’s played a role in the Wolverines struggling against far inferior foes. The junior has committed 10 turnovers, including eight interceptions, and is fresh off his worst career performance (11-23, 97 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT). So, what’s wrong with Michigan’s signal-caller? We asked BTN analyst Derek Rackley (@drack48) for the answer to that question, in addition to four other hot topics around the Big Ten. BTN.com: What’s wrong with Devin Gardner? Derek Rackley: Oh, man, I wish I had the easy solution to that, because
