1st Quarter Recap: Iowa 3, Minnesota 0

The two teams combined for more punts than points in a slow first quarter and Iowa leads 3-0 at the end of the first quarter. There were four punts in the quarter as neither team could find a way to move the ball. The Hawkeyes struck first when Mike Meyer drilled a 43-yard field goal, the final play of a six-play, 49-yard drive. Iowa’s drive was keyed by James Vandenberg’s 45-yard pass. The Hawkeyes’ Mark Weisman has already gone over 100 yards rushing in just one quarter, with 103 so far. Iowa will start the second quarter with good field

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 BTN.com editors provide Rapid Recaps with quarterly updates from every game topped off with my Saturday Snap Reactions. Get those quarterly updates

Big Ten Mailbag: What's wrong with Illinois?

It’s that time of week again. You’ve been sending me your Big Ten questions all week, and now I offer my answers. On tap this week: What’s wrong with Illinois? How could I have two Big Ten teams headed to BCS bowls in my latest bowl projections? Find my answers inside. And don’t be afraid to send questions for future Mailbags. Or you can send them my way on Twitter (@BTNTomDienhart). Nice article on Tom Osborne. He is a class act and has done many good things. I hope he stays somewhat connected to the program. – Ted S.

Best of Week 5: Miller vs. Spartan LBs

It’s Floyd of Rosedale Week! Hallelujah! Not only that, but this is the first week of full-scale conference—save for one game. And there are some intriguing matchups. The headliner is Ohio State’s visit to Michigan State. The Buckeyes lost an ugly 10-7 game last year in Columbus with just 178 yards of offense. Wisconsin comes to Nebraska in another good inter-divisional matchup. Each team has won two in a row and is looking to continue that ascent after an ugly loss to a Pac-12 school on September 8.

What a difference a year makes...

In sports, we constantly hear the phrase, “What a difference a year makes.” It’s a cliche, no doubt about it. But, often times, it’s so true. And that’s the case when one compares the first four weeks of the 2012 Big Ten football season to the first quarter of the 2011 campaign. Here’s an example of the differences, team by team: ILLINOIS One year ago after four weeks: The Illini were 4-0 and had outscored its opponents, 129-52. This year: Illinois is 2-2 and it matched last year’s 52 points allowed in the Louisiana Tech game alone; its 104 points

Dienhart: Week 5 bowl projections

Four weeks are in the books, but the bowl picture remains a work-in-progress—as usual 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. Once again, the Big Ten did little to improve its stock on Saturday, notching no impressive wins while seeing Michigan lose to Notre Dame in the biggest game of the weekend. Also, Iowa was stunned at home by Central Michigan and Illinois got hammered at home by Louisiana Tech. [RELATED: Week 5 Power Rankings

Week 5 Player Rankings: It's Weisman time!

With Week 4 behind us, it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Again, I’m doing these a little different this year. Whereas I used to rank the top 10 players – a practice that was tough due to all the talent on both sides of the ball – I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six of both? Because it opens up the field, plus there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa. OFFENSE 1. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio

The week that was: Week 4's top 10 stories

The final full week of non-conference football is complete, and now it’s time for Big Ten play. There are five Big Ten tilts set for Saturday, including Ohio State-Michigan State and Wisconsin-Nebraska. Before the action kicks off, here are BTN.com’s top 10 most-read stories of Week 4. 10. Revsine’s Numbers: Three unbeaten teams remain Last week, I opened the column by dwelling on the negative. Not happening this week. We’re starting with the positive – the Big Ten’s three unbeaten teams. Ohio State is the first, and perhaps least surprising, of those unbeatens – and Urban Meyer’s team has gotten
