We are heading down the home stretch with just two weeks left in the Big Ten regular season. Here is a rundown of the upcoming games on Saturday and a recap of this week’s news leading up to the big weekend ahead.
There were seven Big Ten men’s basketball games on Friday, including Michigan’s impressive 82-80 overtime win over Florida State. Sophomore Nik Stauskas scored a game-high 26 points, including seven in overtime, as the Wolverines erased a 16-point second-half deficit.
Once again, Saturday is almost here and I’ve rolled up my sleeves and cranked out four downs worth of football predictions, thoughts, and truths about Week 13 of the Big Ten football season. Why four downs? Because in this post we never punt.
Wisconsin and Penn State each notched big wins in the opening round of the NCAA men’s soccer tournament. Northwestern and Indiana, the reigning NCAA and Big Ten champions, fell to Akron 3-2. Catch up on all of Thursday’s NCAA men’s soccer action in this post.
