Best of Week 12: All eyes on MSU-Nebraska

An interesting Saturday of action is headlined by what could be the Big Ten Game of the Year: Michigan State at Nebraska. Ohio State will look to remain unbeaten when it plays at Illinois. The Buckeyes have owned Illinois, winning the last five meetings and eight of the last nine. The lone Fighting Illini victory in that stretch was when they stunned No. 1 Ohio State in Columbus in 2007 on the way to the Rose Bowl. The Buckeyes haven’t lost in Champaign since 1991. Michigan (two losses in a row) plays at Northwestern (five losses in a row) in

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 11

Week 11 of the season was eye-opening on many levels. Nebraska is still alive and kicking with a chance to win the Legends Division, while Michigan is still searching for answers. And then there’s Minnesota, which keeps on authoring a new amazing chapter in its storybook season. Here is what I learned. 1. The Big Ten is loaded with good running backs. In fact, no conference may have a better collection. Take your pick from the likes of Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde, Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and James White, Minnesota’s David Cobb, Indiana’s Tevin Coleman and Stephen Houston,

Power Rankings: Where is Michigan this week?

With two of my top three teams off this Saturday in No. 1 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan State, the top of my power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal, didn’t change much. In fact, the rankings only got tweaked, as no big upsets took place. But with MSU playing at Nebraska next week, big changes could be coming.

And, they did, with Oregon falling to Stanford.

An interesting Saturday of action, with Nebraska being the headline story by going on the road and earning a huge win. The last time the Cornhuskers played in Ann Arbor, Nebraska lost, 45-17.
