Allen Robinson entered the 2013 season as the Big Ten’s undisputed top wide receiver. The Nittany Lion star earned the honor following his breakout 2012 campaign, in which he led the conference in receptions (77), receiving yards (1,013) and touchdowns (11). Through six games, Robinson is on pace for even better numbers. But is he the Big Ten’s best receiver? I asked our resident quarterback, Stanley Jackson, for his answer.

Ohio State is still on the outside looking in when it comes to playing in the BCS title game (BCS Standings), but plenty of time remains. Don’t fret, Brutus. The Big Ten has a decent shot to get two teams into BCS bowls, with Wisconsin a good bet to finish 10-2 and claim a sweet postseason slot. In fact, I have the Badgers slotted to be an at-large BCS bowl team in this week’s rankings.
The Big Ten office released its Week 8 Big Ten Players of the Week on Monday, and it includes a pair of first-time honorees.

The first BCS standings were released on Sunday night. Alabama is No. 1, which was no shock. It was a shock that Florida State is No. 2 over Oregon, which is No. 3.
