There are five games on the Big Ten docket this week. But none of the clashes figures to have a big impact on the league race—unless we have some major upsets. Still, there will be a lot to keep an eye as we begin to wade into the second half of the season.
We are officially halfway through the college football season, which is hard to believe. It has been a phenomenal Big Ten season thus far, featuring plenty of great games and individual performers. Several of those top individual performers were rewarded this week by being named to various 2013 Midseason All-America Teams.
The College Football Playoff announced Wednesday the 13 members of its selection committee that will pick the four teams to participate in a coming playoff in 2014.

The Big Ten announced Wednesday its conference schedules for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. And there are some good cross-division games.
We knew it was going to be a wild Legends Division race, and it’s lived up to the hype. Every team has played two Big Ten games, with the results yielding a pair of 2-0, 1-1 and 0-2 teams. The preseason contenders with the favorable schedules, Michigan State and Nebraska, are off to perfect starts, while the preseason contenders with the unfavorable schedules, Michigan and Northwestern, check in at 1-1 and 0-2, respectively.
In the latest “BTN Soccer Report,” host Kevin Egan recaps the third week of Big Ten soccer action, including Sunday’s double-overtime decision between Ohio State and Michigan State. Also, Wisconsin defender A.J. Cochran talks with Kevin about his season so far and former Northwestern star Matt Eliason stops by the show to talk about his time as a Wildcat.
