Another year, another double-digit win season? We shall see. Michigan State has many challenges looming as it looks to reload and repeat as East Division champion. [ MORE: @BTNStatsGuys: 5 fun facts for Michigan State ] One of the biggest: find a QB.

Big Ten Football: 10 impact freshmen to watch in 2016

The countdown to the official kickoff of Big Ten football is at 22 days. Fans have become accustomed to hearing names like J.T. Barrett, Desmond King and Jabrill Peppers. How about some young, upcoming stars that Big Ten fans should expect to hear a lot about in this upcoming season? I chatted with several players and coaches, as well as media members at this year’s Big Ten Media Days, asking them about the freshmen that have stood out in practice.

Big Ten Mailbag: Can Indiana compete with Big Ten's elite?

Rolling through the hills of Pennsylvania on the Big Ten Network bus, what better time than now to dip into my Big Ten Mailbag? Exactly. I look at the continued perceived disrespect of Michigan State. And would Wisconsin be the West Division fav if it had a veteran QB? How will Purdue’s schedule break down? That and more. Let’s go! You certainly disrespected Michigan State if your story of “best chance for Big Ten teams to get upset.” Are the Spartans now chopped liver? Looks like you just fall in line with others, overlooking Sparty. Interesting. – Roger Elliott Look,

Top 25 Big Ten football teams over the past 25 years

Last week, the Associated Press released their Top 100 college football teams of the past 80 years. A total of seven Big Ten teams landed on the list, highlighted by Ohio State at No. 1 overall. The Buckeyes have ranked in the AP Poll for more weeks than any other team (852) during that span, including the most at No. 1 (105). This got me thinking, who are the best Big Ten teams in recent memory? Obviously, the 2014 Ohio State Buckeyes come to mind in recent memory, but what about before that?

Michigan State is developing a concussion-detecting headband: BTN LiveBIG

The potential for concussion injuries has risen dramatically in almost every level of athletic competition. According to the American Association of Pediatrics, more than 300,000 sports-related concussions are reported annually in the United States, but a recent review states that the number of injuries could be in the millions. The disparity in reporting highlights one of the most frustrating aspects of treating concussion-related injuries: Determining when a concussion has occurred and how severe it might be. A pair of chemistry professors at Michigan State University seem to have an unlikely solution: a headband for athletes to wear during games that assesses

Every coach looks at a schedule, scanning the list of games. Which ones figure to be tough ones? Even more vital: Which stretch of games figures to be the most daunting, a potential make-or-break run of contests?

Dienhart: Best chance for each Big Ten team to get upset

No coach wants to lose a game that experts think he’s supposed to win. Upsets can set a season on its ear and prove ruinous. [ MORE: Best chance to pull upset | Toughest non-conference games | Toughest conference game ] There are potholes on every schedule. And I have picked the one game on your school’s schedule in which it has its best chance to be—gulp–upset. Illinois. The visit from Western Michigan on Sept. 17 is dangerous. P.J.
