How did we do? Week 11 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 12, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 11 Big Ten predictions.

Tom's Take: My Week 11 honors, grades & stocks

An interesting Saturday of action, with Nebraska being the headline story by going on the road and earning a huge win. The last time the Cornhuskers played in Ann Arbor, Nebraska lost, 45-17. The feel-good story in Minnesota also continued with a fourth victory in a row. Here’s a wrap on Week 11 in the Big Ten.

Dienhart: These Gophers are making history

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Just when you thought Minnesota’s season couldn’t get any better, another win happens. That’s four in a row for the Golden Gophers after a methodical 24-10 triumph over Penn State. And I know they are keeping track in places like Fergus Falls, Ely, Mankato and Albert Lea. Why not? The last time Minnesota won four Big Ten games in a row was 1973. That’s history, which is what this team is making. That 1973 squad closed the season with victories over Northwestern, Purdue, Illinois and Wisconsin to finish 7-4 overall and 6-2 in the Big Ten under
