Revsine's Numbers: Week 2 figures to be intriguing

While there’s always a certain excitement surrounding opening weekend, last week’s slate in the Big Ten left quite a bit to be desired. Outside of Michigan’s match-up with Alabama and Michigan State’s battle with Boise State, very few of the games elicited much in the way of excitement. That is far from the case in Week 2, where I’d venture to say as many as eight or nine games carry a fairly significant level of intrigue. From where I sit, the Purdue-Notre Dame battle is the most interesting one on the slate. As we’ve attended Purdue practices over the last

Dienhart: 12 Big Ten Questions for Week 2

Bowl Projections: Our Expert's List after Week 1

One week is in the books, but not much has changed in my Big Ten bowl projections (posted here every Monday). Remember: The Big Ten has tie-ins with eight bowls—and it has just 10 bowl-eligible schools, as Penn State and Ohio State are banned from the postseason in 2012. Yes, Michigan lost on Saturday—but there was no shame in falling to perhaps the best team in the nation in Alabama. With the Wolverines being the lone Big Ten bowl-eligible team that tasted defeat—and, again, it was a quality defeat–I still think the Big Ten will be able to fill all
