I’m continuing my early week-by-week look at the 2013 Big Ten schedule, and it’s all about Week 4 today.

Yes, the 2013 football season still is two-plus months away. That won’t keep me from looking ahead and taking an in-depth look at each and every week’s top matchups and storylines. I’m also offering my rankings of every week’s slate of games. Up now: Week 3, highlighted by Nebraska’s rematch vs. UCLA.
The Michigan offense is set to take the final step in its transformation from a spread-oriented scheme into a pro-style attack.
You know it’s summer when video game ratings receive as much attention as they did Tuesday afternoon. The reason for all the talk? NCAA ’14 team ratings were released, and a few of the grades were a bit interesting.
