Power Rankings: Surging Iowa shoots up list

With six schools off and just four games that featured no upsets, there was little movement in my weekly Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Iowa was the biggest winner, jumping three spots from No. 9 to No. 6. Conversely, Minnesota fell like a rock from No. 6 to No. 10. Here is my latest Power Poll.

Braxton Miller looked impressive in his first action since early in the second game of the season. This team

Ohio State remains No. 3 in Coaches Poll

The latest Coaches Poll was released Sunday, and Ohio State remained No. 3 following its 31-24 victory over Wisconsin, which fell out of the poll. Northwestern comes in at No. 15, setting up a top-15 matchup Saturday night vs. the Buckeyes. Two other Big Ten teams are ranked in the poll: Michigan (No. 17); Nebraska (No. 25). Coaches’ Rankings Rankings as of 9/29/2013 Rank School Votes Prev Rank 1 Alabama (4-0) 1546 (59) 1 2 Oregon (4-0) 1479 (2) 2 3 Ohio State (5-0) 1397 3 4 Clemson (4-0) 1352 (1) 4 5 Stanford (4-0) 1325 5 6 Georgia (3-1)

Debate It: Who will win the Legends Division?

Each week during the season, BTN.com web editor Sean Merriman and a featured guest will debate a topic related to Big Ten football. This week, Nebraska beat writer Brian Rosenthal and I debate the following question: “Heading into Week 5 of the college football season, which team is your favorite to win the Legends Division”? Our answers may surprise you… [ MORE: Enter the Buffalo Wild Wings Trip to the Football Championship Sweepstakes ] Sean: This is the burning question on every Big Ten fan’s mind right now. I can say that all six teams have a legitimate chance at

Dienhart: Trying to sort out wide open Legends Division

The season is four weeks old, and I’m not sure who is going to win the Legends Division. True, the race looked muddled before the season began, with pundits typically tabbing Michigan or Nebraska to take the banner. But, cases also could have been made for Northwestern and Michigan State. Conversely, the Leaders Division looks like a two-team race between Ohio State and Wisconsin. Now? Heck, you seemingly could argue that all six teams in the division have a shot as the calendar prepares to flip from September to October. Here is a look at the good and bad for

Listen to your Big Ten football coach

Each Tuesday morning during the Big Ten football season, the 12 Big Ten football coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio for each segment of the call here, and we do this every Tuesday afternoon. Also, @B1Gfootball spotlights a tweet or three from each coach on the call live on Twitter in case you want to follow along online.

Dienhart: My best of 2013 Big Ten noncon season

We have reached the one-third mark of the 2013 season. Where has the time gone? Last time I looked up from my keyboard, the kids still were splashing in the neighborhood swimming pool and the Cubs were eliminated from playoff contention. Wait, that last item happened back in June. Forget it. You get the point. Four weeks of the 2013 season are in the rearview mirror, as we head into the heart of conference play with only three non-leagues left: Northern Illinois at Purdue; Miami (Ohio) at Illinois; BYU at Wisconsin. Here is my one-third report. [ MORE: View BTN.com’s

Dienhart: Badgers move up in bowl projections

No big shakeups in my weekly bowl projections. The biggest is Wisconsin leaping past Michigan into the Capital One bowl, clashing with LSU. Of course, these schools will meet in season-opening games in 2014 (at Houston’s Reliant Stadium) and 2016 (at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field). Minnesota also has moved up to the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, where I have it playing Baylor.

BTN.com's 2013 noncon All-Big Ten Team

And just like that, the nonconference portion of the Big Ten football schedule is behind us. Now, there are still a trio of noncon games left, but it’s all about Big Ten matchups the rest of the way. With 11 of the 12 teams four games into their 2013 season, there’s no better time to release our annual noncon All-Big Ten Team.

How did we do? Week 4 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 5, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 4 Big Ten predictions. Stephen Bardo went a perfect 10-0 to move into a first-place tie (39-7) with Brent Yarina and Big Ten fans, who both went 9-1.

Dienhart: 10 things I learned in Week 4

It was a busy Saturday in the Big Ten, with 10 games taking place. Michigan continues to live dangerously, no team runs like Wisconsin, Nebraska still loves Bo and the Michigan State offense still has a ways to go. I learned a lot. Take a look.
