Big Ten Hoops Power Rankings

It’s time to release my latest Big Ten men’s hoops power rankings. The rankings are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply my thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands at that time. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina or leave your comments below. The week ahead pits Big Ten teams against two of the nation’s best programs, No. 1 Kentucky and No. 13 Kansas. Indiana hosts Kentucky at 5:15 p.m. ET Saturday, while Ohio State plays at Kansas at 3:15 p.m. Saturday. Check out Brent’s latest power rankings

Dienhart: Two Teams Deliver One for the Ages

INDIANAPOLIS – The notion of three yards and cloud of dust was trashed on this night. Instead, the inaugural Big Ten championship game was a celebration of yards, points–and more yards and points. And a running into the kicker penalty on Michigan State that killed the Spartans’ last hope to score to rally for the winning score. Wisconsin won this more-than-a-point-minute inaugural edition of the Big Ten title game, taking a scintillating 42-39 victory over Michigan State. Few thought this game had much of a chance to live up to the first meeting in October, a 37-31 heart-stopper victory for

Roses are Red! Wisconsin wins Big Ten Thriller

In a game filled with action from start to finish, Wisconsin defeated Michigan State to win the first Big Ten Football Championship Game, 42-39.’s Tom Dienhart writes that few thought this game had much of a chance to live up to the first meeting in October but it certainly did. Now Wisconsin heads to their second straight Rose Bowl on Jan. 2, thanks in large part to Montee Ball’s 137 rushing yards and four total touchdowns. We tracked it all with our live box score and play-by-play, added live tweets from the site by @BTNTomDienhart and @BTNBrentYarina, and updated

Saturday's Sights & Sounds from Indy

As a web editor, I’m in Indianapolis covering the Big Ten Football Championship and filing reports including videos and tweets. I’ll also snap off some photos. Follow me on Twitter (@BTNBrentYarina). The Fan Fest has a feature where you can sit at the anchor desk and call a highlight reel. I met the father-son duo of Mark and Andy DeNato and watched them break down the Big Ten title game. I’m spending most of the day at Fan Fest downtown and then I’ll also be covering the atmosphere at the game tonight. Ran into McNutt at Fan Fest. Asked
