Carollo assesses targeting penalty after nine weeks

The early returns are in, and the new penalty for targeting is having an impact. According to Big Ten officials coordinator Bill Carollo, there have been 54 targeting calls in 534 FBS games in 2013. Fifteen were subsequently overturned upon replay review, putting the number of disqualifications through 534 games and nine weeks of action at 39. Last year in the Big Ten, targeting was flagged six times, according to Carollo. This year, it has been flagged twice: Nebraska’s Stanley Jean-Baptiste at Purdue on Oct. 12 and Ohio State’s Bradley Roby vs. Iowa on Oct. 19. Watch Jean-Baptiste’s hit (Roby’s

Power Rankings: Surging Spartans move on up

If you somehow had any doubts prior to Saturday about who was the best team in the Big Ten, Ohio State surely cleared those up with its dominating effort vs. Penn State. Iowa and Minnesota were big risers. But Saturday wasn’t so good for Nebraska and Penn State. Here are my post-Week Nine Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal.

Four Downs: Who's ready for Week 9?

Saturday is almost here. Can you feel it? Can you sense it? OK, if you can’t, just fake it until you make it. Every team gets four downs to make something happen. So, why not me? That’s the idea behind this article. Here’s what’s running through my mind as I dream fancifully about Week 9 of the Big Ten season. 4 PREDICTIONS 1. Michigan State isn’t going to look past Illinois and fast forward to its Nov. 2 visit from Michigan. Not a chance. Not after the Spartans’ basically sleepwalked past Purdue in a 14-0 win that set off alarm

Best of Week 9: Can PSU pull off another upset?

Another light, yet exciting week ahead, with four teams off–Indiana, Michigan, Purdue and Wisconsin. Still, this Saturday has a marquee, prime-time game to hang its hat on with Penn State playing at Ohio State. The loser of the Northwestern at Iowa game may be hard-pressed to become bowl-eligible. Nebraska is locked and loaded for a big second half of the season, which begins at Minnesota. NU must win if it wants to win the Legends, right? How lopsided has the Nebraska-Minnesota series been? Check it out: Nebraska has beaten the Golden Gophers 16 times in a row. The last Gophers’

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 8

So much went on this Saturday, I don’t know where to start. How about with 110 points and 1,323 yards, which is what Indiana-Michigan combined for in a game that left many breathless. While the Wolverines may have answered some questions about their listless offense, questions about their defense may have been created in the process. Oh, well. What else did I learn? Check it out.

Power Rankings: Wildcats continue descent

With Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Michigan winning—and Nebraska being off—there were no changes to the top of my Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But there was plenty of shifting in the bottom half, highlighted (lowlighted?) by Northwestern’s continued descent. It wasn’t long ago that I had the Wildcats No. 2 in the Big Ten. Now?

Tom's Take: My Week 8 grades, stocks & more

For the most part, it was business as usual in the Big Ten on this Saturday. Ohio State reasserted its dominance with a 19th victory in a row. Wisconsin dominated Illinois and Michigan State was methodical vs. Purdue, while Michigan beat Indiana in one of the wildest games of the season. Northwestern? I don’t know what to make of the Wildcats. Here is a wrap of Week 8.
