Power Rankings: Maryland remains atop Jon Crispin's latest list

For the second consecutive week, Maryland sits atop my Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. The Terrapins edged Penn State in their Big Ten opener and cruised to victory at Northwestern to improve to 13-1.

Player Rankings: Jarrod Uthoff takes over No. 2 spot this week

With the stat-stuffing games that dominate the nonconference season now history, it's a lot easier to assemble a weekly Big Ten Player Rankings. The first week of conference play featured no shortage of impressive individual performances.

BTN LiveBIG: Living 'B1G' in 2015

When we say the students, faculty and staff, and alumni of the universities of the Big Ten Conference “live big,” we aren’t overstating our case. Last year, we reported stories that took our readers from exotic locales like Sri Lanka and Uganda to galaxies far, far away. Whether it’s on-campus or in outer space, the Big Ten community is innovating, inspiring and improving. We told more than 200 of those stories in 2015. We loved them all, but there were a few that stood out to us as especially interesting and high-impact. Here are some of our favorites from the universities

Tom’s Take: Honors, stock watch, top performers, notes & quotes

The lid has been taken off Big Ten play, and five schools are off to 2-0 starts. Two of them aren’t a shock, as Maryland and Indiana are out of the gates quickly. But it’s a surprise to see Michigan, Ohio State and Iowa also 2-0 in Big Ten action.

Video: Ohio State survives Illinois' last-second heave

The Illinois-Ohio State men’s basketball game Sunday night featured an exciting finish. The teams traded baskets down the stretch, and the game wasn’t decided until the final shot. Trailing 74-73 after a Malcolm Hill 3-pointer with three seconds left, Illinois fouled Marc Loving, who hit the first free throw and missed the second. Hill grabbed the missed free throw, took a few dribbles and heaved a potential game-winner from the other side of the court. The shot looked like it was on line, but it went to the left the rim, meaning Ohio State survived, 75-73, and moved to 2-0

Dienhart: See my best of 2015-16 Big Ten bowl season

The Big Ten college football bowl season is officially in the books. Yes, the Big Ten came up short in its bid to defend the national title won last year by Ohio State. But the conference had some memorable moments during its 5-5 postseason.
