Michigan’s Brady Hoke is No. 8 at $4.1, followed by

Week 11 previews: Five games on tap for Saturday

The games in November are the ones we all remember. And, there are a few interesting clashes this Saturday that will go a long way toward determining the pecking order in each division, especially atop the Legends Division. All eyes will be on Ann Arbor, where Nebraska will play Michigan. For all intents and purposes, the loser likely will be out of the division race. Here’s a look at the games of Week 11.

Volleyball Report: Penn State taking charge

Unpredictable has been the word most commonly uttered to describe this year’s Big Ten women’s volleyball season. Until the past few weeks, there was a genuine sentiment that any team had a chance to pull off a win, regardless of the matchup. However, as so often has been the case in this conference over the past decade, Penn State has asserted itself and begun to separate from the rest of the pack.

A thrilling Saturday of action went a long way in shaking up my weekly Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal.
