Numbers: Crunching stats for title time

November is upon us. It used to be the month when championships were decided. How very 2010. Now, it’s the month when spots in the Championship Game are decided. All in the name of progress… In an odd scheduling quirk, there is just one game in the early window on Saturday – as Minnesota and Michigan battle for the Little Brown Jug in a game you can see on BTN/BTN2Go. Obviously, much of the focus will be on the health of Michigan’s Denard Robinson, after he left the Nebraska game Saturday with an elbow injury. Without him, the Wolverines offense

Bowl projections: Boilers out, Huskers looking rosy

The bowl picture got a bit jumbled after a topsy-turvy weekend. The big winner was Nebraska, which moved into the Rose Bowl slot with its triumph over Michigan. The Legends Division is the Cornhuskers if they win out, which could set up a likely clash with Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game. The Huskers beat the Badgers, 30-27, earlier this season. Michigan still is primed for a nice bowl and still could go to the Rose if it wins out and sees Nebraska lose.

How did we do? Week 9 picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 10, we need to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 9 predictions. It was a rough week for all involved, as BTN.com fans led the way with a 3-3 record. As a result, BTN.com fans tied Dienhart for the top spot in the season standings, at 54-20.

Michigan State rallies, tops Wisconsin in OT

Andrew Maxwell threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler in overtime, giving Michigan State a 16-13 victory and snapping Wisconsin’s 21-game home winning streak. It was the first win at Camp Randall since 2001 for the Spartans (5-4, 2-3 Big Ten), who have won four of the last six games against Wisconsin. It was the Badgers’ first loss at home since Oct 17, 2009. The teams have had a hand in the last two Big Ten titles, sharing it in 2010 and playing in the first conference championship game last year. But this was nothing like those games. After

More proof of the defense: Michigan State, with Le’Veon Bell, and Wisconsin, with Montee Ball and James White, have combined for 31 rushing yards. The Badgers have possession on their own 42-yard line to start the fourth quarter.
