In addition to reliving Penn State’s four-overtime win over Michigan (watch the entire game on BTN2Go), the crew from “The Journey: Big Ten Football 2013” presented by Best Buy takes you into the trenches with three Big Ten linemen – two of them played in that game. Meet Penn State’s John Urschel, who you will learn is a star both on the field and in the classroom. If you watch the clip in this post, you’ll hear a wonderful story about how Urschel outsmarted his own mother back when Urschel was going through toilet training as child.
We knew it was going to be a wild Legends Division race, and it’s lived up to the hype. Every team has played two Big Ten games, with the results yielding a pair of 2-0, 1-1 and 0-2 teams. The preseason contenders with the favorable schedules, Michigan State and Nebraska, are off to perfect starts, while the preseason contenders with the unfavorable schedules, Michigan and Northwestern, check in at 1-1 and 0-2, respectively.

Seven weeks down, seven weeks to go. At the midway point of the 2013 Big Ten football season, it’s time to release my All-Big Ten Midseason Team. I also did a midseason report. See who made my midseason team in this post.
