Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 2

Another week is in the books. There has been a lot to be impressed with over the first two weeks of the season, with strong starts by teams like Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn State and Ohio State, among others. Saturday provided some clarity, but much remains unknown. Here is what I learned in Week 2. [ MORE: Dienhart’s Week 2 honors, grades & more | Power Rankings ] 1.

Video: Izzo cheers on Spartans from student section

We all know Tom Izzo is a very big football fan. Well, for Saturday’s game vs. South Florida, the legendary Michigan State basketball coach spent time in the student section. And make no mistake, he was there to contribute to the crowd noise and cheer on the home team. See a photo of Izzo jumping up and celebrating with the students in this post. As for the action, while it wasn’t pretty, Michigan State took down South Florida, 21-6, behind two defensive touchdowns from Shilique Calhoun.

Debate It: MSU's defense or Huskers' offense?

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’s question: If you were a Big Ten coach, would you rather have Nebraska’s offense or Michigan State’s defense. Given both Eric and Sean’s collegiate backgrounds, these answers may surprise you. Sean Merriman: This is a tough call, but I’m going to go with Nebraska’s offense. Remember, these two teams had the same issues last season when they met in early November. Taylor Martinez came into East Lansing and beat MSU, 28-24, in Spartan Stadium. That

Best of Week 2: Gardner's chance to shine

This isn’t a Saturday filled with scintillating matchups, but it’s saved by the marquee Notre Dame at Michigan game. One problem: There are three games vs. FCS foes: Indiana State at Purdue; Tennessee Tech at Wisconsin; Missouri State at Iowa. And Penn State plays host to Eastern Michigan, which is like a FCS school. Also, South Florida (which is at Michigan State) and San Diego State (at Ohio State) are horrible. The Big Ten team that will have the most difficult time winning? Illinois, which plays host to Cincinnati. The Bearcats thumped Purdue last week, 42-7. This is the second

Dienhart: My Week 2 Big Ten previews

Week Two brings us a blockbuster matchup: Notre Dame at Michigan, one of the sport’s iconic rivalries. This will be a great test for a Wolverines’ program that is on the rise and the pick of many to win the Legends Division. Since the series was renewed in 1978, it is tied 14-14-1. However, this will be the last time for the foreseeable future that the clubs will meet in Ann Arbor. The series will go on a hiatus after a 2014 clash in South Bend. So, enjoy and savor every last drop of this game on Saturday night. Here
