Week 10 Player Rankings: Bullough breaks in

It’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. There’s one name making its debut on this week’s installment. What other movement was there? Find out in this post. Remember, this feature ranks the Big Ten’s top six offensive and defensive players. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.

Week 10 Power Rankings: How 'bout them Huskers?!

With another Saturday in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to take the temperature of the Big Ten. It was a tough week for the Leaders Division, with four of its six teams losing. And a new leader emerged in the Legends, as Nebraska continues to move up. Where do all the teams land in my latest Power Rankings? Find out in this post.

How did we do? Week 9 picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 10, we need to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 9 predictions. It was a rough week for all involved, as BTN.com fans led the way with a 3-3 record. As a result, BTN.com fans tied Dienhart for the top spot in the season standings, at 54-20. I sit three games behind the pace.

Perfect Ohio State cools off Penn State, 35-23

Braxton Miller was his usual self, running for 134 yards and accounting for three touchdowns, leading No. 9 Ohio State to a 35-23 victory against Penn State on Saturday. Ryan Shazier returned an interception 17 yards for a score early in the third quarter that gave the Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) the lead for good, and the Nittany Lions (5-3, 3-1) had their five-game winning streak snapped in a matchup of the bowl-banned perennial powers. Miller missed the fourth quarter against Purdue after a hard tackle sent him to the hospital with a case of whiplash. He declared himself

3rd quarter recap: Ohio State 28, Penn State 10

Ohio State racked up 106 rushing yards in the third, and the Buckeyes now lead 28-10. Ohio State sniffed out Penn State’s rushing attack in the quarter, holding the Nittany Lions to one rush yard. The Buckeyes are currently on a 14-point run. Ohio State made the score 14-7 when Ryan Shazier intercepted a Matt McGloin pass and returned it for a touchdown. Penn State closed the gap to 14-10 when Sam Ficken drilled a 27-yard field goal to finish off a 72-yard drive. The Nittany Lions’ drive was keyed by McGloin’s 44-yard pass to Brandon Moseby-Felder. Despite driving to

2nd quarter recap: Ohio State 7, Penn State 7

Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde ran for eight yards and one touchdown in the quarter, and the two teams are tied 7-7 at the end of the second. Penn State made the score 7-0 when Mike Hull returned a blocked punt for a touchdown. The Buckeyes tied the game at seven after Hyde turned a handoff into a one-yard touchdown to end a 12-play, 75-yard drive. Ohio State threw just one time during that series. The Nittany Lions are set to receive to start the second half. [ PREVIEWS | BY QUARTER | BOX | PBP | CONNECT | WEATHER ] EDITOR’S

1st quarter recap: Ohio State 0, Penn State 0

There were more punts than points in the first quarter and the game is tied 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. With neither team able to move the ball, there were six punts in the quarter. No. 9 Ohio State will start the second quarter with the ball at Penn State’s 45-yard line.

Did You See This? Joe Paterno statue costume

Halloween is Wednesday, so we can expect to see a bunch of fans dressed up in costume during Week 9 across Big Ten stadiums. At Penn State, one fan is headed to the game as the Joe Paterno statue that used to sit outside Beaver Stadium. The statue, plus the entire memorial to the former coach, was removed in the wake of the child sex abuse case. Here’s a picture of the costume: @darrenrovell LIVING JoePa statue in State College pic.twitter.com/wzZYGUFC — Dustin Coleman (@DirtColeman) October 27, 2012 Throughout Saturday’s Ohio State-Penn State game, we’ll provide live quarterly recaps on

Week 9 Previews: Legends battle comes to Lincoln

In my preview of this Saturday’s six games, I believe most teams will play with a real sense of urgency. Nebraska and Michigan are two good examples, but Ohio State and Penn State each have something to prove, too. Michigan State and Wisconsin have a history, Iowa leads Northwestern in the standings, and Purdue, Minnesota, Indiana and Illinois each seek their first conference win. I’ll be in Lincoln to cover Michigan and Nebraska, and you can follow me on Twitter @BTNTomDienhart. I’ll track all of the other games with my usual Saturday Snap Reactions.

Debate it: Choose 1 QB to lead a late drive

Three Big Ten quarterbacks led game-winning drives in the waning moments last Saturday. Two of the names – Taylor Martinez and Denard Robinson – were no big surprise, but the other, and perhaps most impressive, one – Kenny Guiton – sure was. That got BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina thinking: If your team needs a game-winning drive, which Big Ten quarterback would you pick? See their answers in this post. Tom: That’s easy: Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez. He may not have the best arm in the Big Ten (that may be Matt McGloin). And he may not be the best
