Perfect Iowa and Northwestern finally make a move in my latest Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But the question is, can anyone ever catch Ohio State and Michigan State?
It's Sunday, and that means it's time for Gerry DiNardo's weekly Sunday Ruminations. The BTN analyst goes to Twitter every Sunday morning to give his 140-character analysis on what he saw in the Big Ten the previous day.
Gwen Westerman likes to tell stories. She just doesn’t do it with words. “I think there is a way of telling stories that doesn’t involve putting them in a book,” said Westerman, an artist who works with visual mediums like fiber and textiles. “This is a different format to share culture, history and tradition.” She was recently named as the University of Nebraska’s Great Plains Art Museum’s Artist in Residence, and the first part of her residency lasted for a week at the beginning of this month. She’ll continue the second half in mid-November, using the lobby of the museum
Before we turn our attention to Week 4, it's time to revisit how the BTN.com team, Iowa beat writer Scott Dochterman and Big Ten fans did with their Week 3 Big Ten predictions.
Week 3 was all about the ACC, as the Big Ten played five games vs. the eastern league. Final score: ACC 3, Big Ten 2. Northwestern (at Duke) and Iowa (Pitt) were the only two Big Ten teams to win. Illinois (at North Carolina), Nebraska (at Miami) and Purdue (Virginia Tech) all lost.
After subpar performances throughout Weeks 1 and 2, the Big Ten had a solid Week 3 showing.

I asked one media member from every Big Ten school to give me
Not a lot of “wow” factor in Week 3, with Nebraska’s trip to Miami (Fla.) earning top billing. These programs battled for the national title three times, after the 1983, 1994 and 2001 seasons. Alas, neither program is of that ilk at the moment—no Tom Osborne, no Howard Schnellenberger, no Dennis Erickson … no legit national title dreams. Still, it will be a fun trip to south Florida for the Cornhuskers, who can send a message with a convincing win under first-year coach Mike Riley. Pitt’s trip to Iowa will be a good measuring stick for Kirk Ferentz’s crew, which
Which first-year Big Ten coach will win the most games in 2015: Nebraska’s Mike Riley, Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst or Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh? Each is off to a 1-1 start this season. And each coach teems with promise and potential. I asked some leading college football media members what they thought. Read what they told me. Bill Bender, Sporting News: Paul Chryst.
