Bowl Projections: OSU gets new Rose Bowl foe

No major shakeups. Stanford’s loss at USC means Oregon is now slated to play Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. But UCLA just as easily could be the foe. The Buckeyes cling to BCS title game hopes, resting at No. 3 in the current standings. But, they’ll need a loss by Alabama or Florida State to get there—while fencing off hard-charging No. 4 Baylor. Stay tuned. Gonna be fun. I have flipped the spots of Michigan State and Wisconsin, with the Spartans now in the Capital One and the Badgers in the Outback. No big whoop, honestly. Wisconsin still harbors

Ohio State to wear all-white 'Rivalry' uniform at Michigan

Ohio State and Nike like to break out new uniforms when the Buckeyes play rival Michigan. This year is no different.

Ohio State's Urban Meyer calls BCS 'flawed system'

(AP) The Bowl Championship Series has been good to Urban Meyer. He led two Florida teams to national championships under the format in the 2006 and 2008 seasons. Each time the Gators lost a game in the regular season, but still played for the BCS title.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 12

It was a Saturday filled with blowouts. Still, there was a lot to learn, beginning with the continued domination of Ohio State and Michigan State. Oh, and Wisconsin is pretty good, too. Everyone else? See what I learned in Week 12 in this post. 1. Ohio State’s offense is really good. The unit has averaged 59.6 points the last three games, scoring 63 (Penn State), 56 (Purdue) and 60 (Illinois) as it tries to make a BCS statement. (I don’t care what Urban Meyer says.) The fewest points the Buckeyes have scored all season has been 31 in a 31-24

Power Rankings: There's a new No. 2 team this week

Ohio State remains on top with another impressive victory, but I finally am moving Michigan State past Wisconsin and into the No. 2 spot in my power rankings.

How did we do? Week 12 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 13, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 12 Big Ten predictions. Stephen Bardo went 5-0 and everyone else went 4-1, missing the Michigan-Northwestern game, meaning Bardo and Sean Merriman are tied atop the standings. Big Ten fans are one game off the pace.
