East meets West: Big Ten unveils new divisions

It’s official: The Big Ten Conference will have new division alignments set to begin in 2014 and nine-game Big Ten Conference schedules for 2016 after the recommendations were unanimously approved by school athletic directors and supported by the Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors.

Big Ten buzzing over reports of new divisions

In a move that had been speculated for months with Rutgers and Maryland poised to join the Big Ten and make it a 14-team league in 2014, the conference is apparently set to announce divisional realignment based on geography. Conference presidents and chancellors will reportedly vote on the divisions, new division names, and an expanded league schedule format on Sunday. Indiana and Purdue would be the lone protected cross-division rivalry, guaranteeing the in-state foes to meet each season for the hallowed Old Oaken Bucket. Earlier this week Purdue president Mitch Daniels told The (Lafayette) Journal and Courier that everything should

Video: Penn State's Bill O'Brien on loud speaker

Penn State introduced a pretty cool wrinkle to its Blue-White Spring Game on Saturday afternoon at Beaver Stadium.

Spring Preview: Challenges ahead for Nittany Lions

By just about every measuring stick, the 2012 Penn State season was a success—and that’s saying a lot, considering the tumult and unknowns with which the program began the season. But perhaps the scariest moment occurred after the air had been taken out of the football when rumors swirled that Bill O’Brien may bolt to the NFL. It all proved to be unfounded and O’Brien pledged his allegiance to Penn State, and that’s good because the next few seasons could be very challenging for the program as it begins to deal with the throes of severe NCAA sanctions that have
