Dienhart: Week 6 Big Ten questions

Another Saturday looms. And, I have questions. Here are my most pressing queries for Big Ten teams entering Week 6, the second week of conference play. Read all of my Big Ten coverage here and don’t forget to send any of your questions my way for my weekly Big Ten Mailbag. Illinois Can the Fighting Illini get on track? This is a team that needs something positive to happen—anything—that is positive. Illinois is coming off consecutive blowout losses at home, losing 52-24 to Louisiana Tech and 35-7 to Penn State. Now comes back-to-back road games at Wisconsin and Michigan. Bottom

Best of Week 6: Bo Pelini returns to Columbus

This week’s schedule is loaded with three good games, the headliner being Nebraska’s trip to Ohio State. Each could be the top team in their respective division. The subplots are thick, with great quarterback and head coaching battles leading the way. Oh, and Bo Pelini, a Youngstown, Ohio, native returns to Ohio State, where he was a defensive back from 1987-90. The Buckeyes also are looking for revenge. The Cornhuskers roared back from a 21-point second-half deficit to beat the Buckeyes, 34-27, last year in the first Big Ten game played at Memorial Stadium. [RELATED: Week 6 Power Rankings |

Week 6 Bowl Projections: Illinois off latest list

Five weeks are in the books, and the bowl picture is coming into a bit sharper focus … a bit. To review: The Big Ten has tie-ins with eight bowls—but it has only 10 bowl-eligible schools, as Penn State and Ohio State are on NCAA and banned from the postseason in 2012. With conference play here, schools now are beating up on each other, alternately helping and hurting each program’s bowl stock. Several schools enhanced their bowl resume with nice wins last Saturday, including Iowa, Purdue, Nebraska and Northwestern. [RELATED: Week 6 Power Rankings | Week 6 Player Rankings] The

Week 6 Power Rankings: Ohio State stays on top

Ohio State solidified its case for the top spot in my Week 6 Power Rankings, this after going into East Lansing at knocking off Michigan State. But what about the rest of my list? See my latest rankings in this post. Disagree? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below or tweet me (@BTNTomDienhart). 1. Ohio State (5-0, 1-0). The Buckeyes finally put together a good four quarters at Michigan State, quelling some fears of inconsistency on both sides of the ball that some had for Ohio State. The maligned defense was especially impressive vs. Michigan State. Could this team

Tom's Top 10: Forget about 'Film Gate'

And then there were two. The first week of Big Ten play saw previously undefeated Minnesota suffer its first loss of the season. That leaves Ohio State and Northwestern, both 5-0, as the Big Ten’s lone remaining perfect teams (B1G standings). See my 10 observations—some whimsical, some fact based, some opinionated—from Week 5. 1. The Ohio State “film gate.” Michigan State claims that Ohio State doctored game film of its offense that it sent the Spartan staff prior to their recent game. MSU defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi says OSU cut off pre-snap motions and shifts before plays of its first

Perfect Wildcats enter latest Coaches Poll

Only two Big Ten teams are ranked in the latest Coaches Poll, released Sunday, and the highest team comes in at No. 20. That would be Nebraska, of course, which didn’t move up this week despite rallying from 17 points down to knock off then-No. 23 Wisconsin. Fresh off its win over Indiana, 5-0 Northwestern debuts in the poll at No. 22.

Week 5 Previews: What to look for in Big Ten play

Earlier this week I helped take a look at who might land in the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship game. Well, the road to that big game starts Saturday as Big Ten teams put a rocky non-conference run behind them and focus on pounding on each other. In this post, I take a close look at all six games, and then I’m headed to East Lansing to cover Ohio State and Michigan State on Saturday. Also, every Saturday editors provide Rapid Recaps with quarterly updates from every game topped off with my Saturday Snap Reactions. Get those quarterly updates
