PSU 24, Wisconsin 21 (OT): Photos, videos & recaps

Sam Ficken hit a 37-yard field goal in overtime, and Wisconsin’s Kyle French attempt from 45 yards went wide left to seal Penn State’s 24-21 win Saturday in an emotional season finale in Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) could have ended it for good a play earlier, but linebacker Glenn Carson dropped a potential interception. Still, the Beaver Stadium faithful celebrated anyway after French’s miss on Senior Day capped a challenging year that began with landmark sanctions from the NCAA for the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

Penn State puts No. 42 on helmet to honor Mauti

There’s no doubt who Penn State’s leader is. And we’ll see proof of it in Saturday afternoon’s season finale against Wisconsin at Beaver Stadium. The Nittany Lions are wearing No. 42 on the left side of their helmets in honor of injured senior Michael Mauti. Mauti hurt his left knee in last week’s win over Indiana. The senior overcame two season-ending knee injuries earlier in his career and turned himself into one of the Big Ten’s top defensive player of the year candidates this year. The linebacker, who helped keep Penn State together following the offseason child sex scandal, will

What to do with Big Ten divisions?

As BTN’s Gerry DiNardo mentioned during Tuesday’s coverage of Rutgers joining the Big Ten, there are three variables to consider when creating the conference’s new divisions: 1. Competitive balance; 2. geography; and 3. rivalries. Right now, no one knows how the new divisions will look, and that includes commissioner Jim Delany. Said Delany on the rumors out there: “Those are news to me.” The only thing that’s a guarantee is there will be change. Whether it’s moving Illinois to the Legends and throwing Maryland and Rutgers into the Leaders – one of the popular rumors – or something else, we’ll

Week 13 Player Rankings: Gardner gets in

There’s plenty of movement in my latest Big Ten Player Rankings following an entertaining Week 12. For starters, white-hot Devin Gardner debuts on the list. See all the changes inside. 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 13 Power Rankings: Ohio State stays on top

Some high drama on Saturday, headed by Ohio State’s 21-14 overtime win at Wisconsin. But no upsets. What’s it all mean? My weekly power rankings didn’t change much as we head toward the last week of the regular-season. But there’s still time for some chaos next Saturday! 1. Ohio State. The beat goes on for the Buckeyes, who moved to 11-0 with a 21-14 overtime win at Wisconsin. And what really was impressive was the fact Ohio State escaped Madison despite not playing well on offense. Last week: 1 Next: Michigan [RELATED: Dienhart: Defense wins this one for Ohio State]

How did we do? Week 12 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 13, it’s time to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 12 predictions. It was a perfect showing for BTN.com fans, which means they jump Dienhart and move into sole possession of first place. Dienhart and I both went 5-1, as we incorrectly picked Michigan State to beat Northwestern.

McGloin, Robinson lead Penn State past Indiana

Receiver Allen Robinson had three highlight-reel scoring catches and Matt McGlointhrew for four touchdowns to lead Penn State in a 45-22 win Saturday over Indiana. Zack Zwinak added 135 rushing yards, but the Nittany Lions (7-4, 5-2 Big Ten) did most of their damage through the air against the porous Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5). Indiana did turn two turnovers into 10 points, including a 46-yarder from Mitch Ewald to get within 28-22 in the third quarter.

3rd quarter recap: Penn State 42, Indiana 22

Stephen Houston had a productive quarter for Indiana. He caught two passes for 90 yards and one touchdown, but the Hoosiers still trail 42-22. Penn State got things going through the air in the quarter, passing for 144 yards. The Nittany Lions have scored the last 14 points. Indiana closed the gap to 28-19 when Cameron Coffman and Houston hooked up for a 79-yard touchdown to put a bow on a 79-yard drive. Watch BTN color analyst Chris Martin beg for Houston to get involved seconds before touchdown. An 18-yard drive that ended when Mitch Ewald kicked a 46-yard field
