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

Who are the top Heisman contenders from the Big Ten?

Here are my top three Big Ten candidates after one week of play. 1. Taylor Martinez, QB, Nebraska. Hit 26-of-34 passes for 354 yards and five touchdowns in 49-20 win over Southern Miss. This week: at UCLA. 2. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State. Ran 44 times for 210 yards and two touchdowns in a 17-13 win over Boise State. This week:

The second weekend of the season is approaching. And this Saturday is highlighted by three games vs. Pac-12 foes—all on the road: Wisconsin at Oregon State; Illinois at Arizona State; Nebraska at UCLA. And how will Penn State (at Virginia) and Michigan (vs. Air Force) respond coming off losses? There also are two rivalry games, with Purdue playing at Notre Dame and Iowa State visiting Iowa. We also have an SEC-Big Ten clash, with Vanderbilt playing at Northwestern. Minnesota (New Hampshire), Indiana (at UMass) and Michigan State (at Central Michigan) seem to have the easiest games this weekend. But, you
