Best of Week 9: Can PSU pull off another upset?

Another light, yet exciting week ahead, with four teams off–Indiana, Michigan, Purdue and Wisconsin. Still, this Saturday has a marquee, prime-time game to hang its hat on with Penn State playing at Ohio State. The loser of the Northwestern at Iowa game may be hard-pressed to become bowl-eligible. Nebraska is locked and loaded for a big second half of the season, which begins at Minnesota. NU must win if it wants to win the Legends, right? How lopsided has the Nebraska-Minnesota series been?

Thursday links: Read these quick B1G headlines

Here is a good place to start daily links on this chilly Thursday in late October. Interesting piece from the great Tom Shatel: If Nebraska has the Big Ten blahs, it has only itself to blame. It seems some Huskers fans aren’t enamored with their new home. But, Shatel has some interesting insights: The inability to move up the rankings, or flag down the Associated Press voters? That’s on Nebraska’s inability to show well in a big game — most notably UCLA — not the mediocrity that is Big Ten football. Embarrassed by being in the Big Ten? Flip it

Week 9 Previews: Penn St-Ohio St under the lights

This is a light menu for Week 9, as there are just four games. Wisconsin, Michigan, Purdue and Indiana all are off this week. And there is just one marquee game, with Penn State playing at Ohio State looking to end the Buckeyes’ remarkable run of 19 victories in a row. Here’s a look at this week’s games.

Bowl Projections: Two Big Ten teams in BCS bowls?

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.

Photo: Nebraska fans will love this groom's cake

Nebraska football fans rival just about any fan base when it comes to passion and dedication. Plain and simple, Huskers love their football team, and they are never shy about showing it. Here’s a terrific example. There’s also this fantastic groom’s cake. How about that? To no surprise at all, Memorial Stadium looks great. And, of course, it’s sold out and filled with red.

Ohio State No. 4 in initial BCS standings

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. Ohio State came in at No. 4, which was not a surprise. Missouri is No. 5. The only other Big Ten teams in the standings: Michigan No. 22; Nebraska No. 24. The big question for the Buckeyes: Can they get to No. 1 or No. 2 in the standings by the end of the season to secure a spot in the BCS title game? Even if Ohio

Power Rankings: Wildcats continue descent

With Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Michigan winning—and Nebraska being off—there were no changes to the top of my Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But there was plenty of shifting in the bottom half, highlighted (lowlighted?) by Northwestern’s continued descent. It wasn’t long ago that I had the Wildcats No. 2 in the Big Ten. Now? Well, have a look for yourself. [ MORE: Enter the Buffalo Wild Wings Trip to the Football Championship Sweepstakes ] POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State (7-0, 3-0).
