Dienhart: My latest Big Ten bowl projections

The regular season is over. All that’s left is the Big Ten title game, which could alter the Big Ten bowl projections at the top of the pecking order. We know this for sure: seven teams will go bowling, as Purdue and Michigan State punched their tickets with wins on Saturday to join Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan, Northwestern and Minnesota. That means the Big Ten won’t be able to fill its eighth and final bowl spot in the Little Caesar’s Bowl. If Ohio State and Penn State weren’t on probation, the Big Ten bowl ranks would swell to nine. The Big

Dienhart: Hope never got Purdue over proverbial hump

After four seasons, Purdue has seen enough of Danny Hope. He officially was fired Sunday. The school also announced wide receivers coach Patrick Higgins will serve as the interim coach for the team’s bowl game. Hope, who receives a $600,000 buyout, compiled a 22-27 overall record and 13-19 Big Ten mark, never getting the program over the proverbial hump after following the glorious Joe Tiller era. This was supposed to be the season that happened, as Hope said this was his best team yet with more starters returning than any other Big Ten squad. Alas, it didn’t happen. “I wish

Final power rankings: Ohio State finishes No. 1

This is the final edition of the 2012 Big Ten power rankings. And it’s pretty clear who the two best teams in the Big Ten are: Ohio State and Nebraska. Alas, they can’t meet in the conference title game, as the Buckeyes are on probation. But Ohio State finished 12-0, including a 63-38 win over the Cornhuskers in Columbus earlier this season. So, the Buckeyes must be best, right? [RELATED: Big Ten Player Rankings] See the final power rankings in the photo gallery below.

Purdue 56, Indiana 35: Photos, videos & recaps

Akeem Shavers broke open a close game with three scores during a 4½-minute span in the fourth quarter, giving Purdue a 56-35 victory over archrival Indiana on Saturday. Robert Marve threw for a career-high 348 yards and four touchdowns in his final home game – a win that made the Boilermakers (6-6, 3-5 Big Ten) bowl eligible for the second straight year, the first time that has happened since 2006-07. By retaining the Old Oaken Bucket, coach Danny Hope also can make a stronger case to keep his job. Indiana (4-8, 2-6) has now lost nine of the last 11
