Week 8 preview: Will one of these matchups surprise?

Next up in my super-early week-by-week preview of the 2013 Big Ten football schedule: Week 8. This is a week light on marquee matchups, with predicted Big Ten title contenders Michigan and Ohio State taking on Indiana and Iowa, respectively, and Nebraska and Penn State on byes. Get all the storylines, matchups and my game rankings for Week 8 in this post. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 ] Game of the week: Minnesota’s trip to Northwestern could be interesting. Yes, this could

Dienhart: Ranking 2013 Big Ten noncon schedules

Schedule strength will become more vital beginning in 2014, when the four-team playoff is started. Why? Because a major component of the playoff team selection process figures to be schedule strength. So, cupcakes are on the way out. But, until then, many remain. Just look at the non-conference schedules. Here is my ranking of the Big Ten non-conference schedules.

Week 7 preview: It'll be a big one at Camp Randall

The 2013 football season may still be two-plus months away, but that won’t keep me from taking an (early) in-depth look at each and every week’s top matchups and storylines. Oh, and I’m also offering my rankings of every week’s slate of games. Up now: Week 7, highlighted by Northwestern’s trip to Wisconsin. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 ] Game of the week: Northwestern at Wisconsin. If the Badgers want a shot at going to a third Big Ten championship game in succession, they must

Dienhart: My Big Ten stadium rankings

Athlon Sports has another awesome list. This time, the Nashville-based company ranks the Big Ten stadiums. Yes, it’s a highly subjective list. No shock to see Ohio Stadium on top, followed by Penn State’s Beaver Stadium and Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium. And it was good to see Wisconsin’s Camp Randall No. 4 over Michigan Stadium. But there are a few things I would tweak. Here are my Big Ten stadium rankings: 1. Ohio Stadium, Ohio State: Loud, proud and crammed in. No place like it. 2. Memorial Stadium, Nebraska: No fan base has more passion or dedication. 3. Camp Randall Stadium,

Debate It: 2013 Big Ten tackles leader?

Tackles are an inexact science, to be sure. Teams award them differently, so it’s not always as simple as comparing Player A from School A to Player B from School B. Whatever the case, the Big Ten returns several of its top tacklers, including 2012 leader Anthony Hitchens. Who will lead the Big Ten in tackles this fall? Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina offer their picks in this post. TACKLES 2012 leader: Anthony Hitchens, Iowa – 124 2013 returning leader: Anthony Hitchens, Iowa – 124 Tom: Ryan Shazier, Ohio State – If you thought Shazier was good last season as

Week 5 preview: Badgers-Buckeyes rule four-game slate

If Big Ten football fans have a wedding to attend this fall, they probably hope it lands on Week 5 – aka Saturday, Sept. 28. Unless, maybe, you’re an Ohio State or Wisconsin fan. The Badgers trip to the Buckeyes highlights an abbreviated four-game slate, half of which includes nonconference games (Northern Illinois at Purdue; Miami (OH) at Illinois). Get all the storylines, matchups and my rankings of Week 5 games in this post. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 preview | Week 3 preview | Week 4 preview ] Game of the week: Wisconsin’s trip to Ohio

Week 4 preview: Spartans will try to solve Irish

I’m continuing my early week-by-week look at the 2013 Big Ten schedule, and it’s all about Week 4 today. Being the final week before Big Ten play kicks off across the conference, the slate leaves some to be desired. That said, there are a few intriguing games, including an early Big Ten draw (Purdue at Wisconsin). Get all the storylines, matchups and my rankings of the week’s games in this post. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 preview | Week 3 preview ] Game of the week: Michigan State at Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are hot coming

Week 3 preview: Hundley v. Martinez Part II

Yes, the 2013 football season still is two-plus months away. That won’t keep me from looking ahead and taking an in-depth look at each and every week’s top matchups and storylines. I’m also offering my rankings of every week’s slate of games. Up now: Week 3, highlighted by Nebraska’s rematch vs. UCLA. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 preview ] Game of the week: No doubt, the visit from a rising UCLA program to Nebraska will be challenging. Last year’s trip to La-La Land was a nightmare for Nebraska. The Huskers allowed 653 yards in a 36-30 loss

Debate It: 2013 Big Ten interception leader?

No category, it seems, is more difficult to predict on a yearly basis than interceptions. Sure, we know who the best cover guys are in the league every year, but that’s not always who finds himself on top of the leaderboard. Last year, there was a quartet of guys who led the Big Ten, with four interceptions. Only Landon Feichter returns from the group. Will he repeat in 2013? Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina offer their picks. INTERCEPTIONS 2012 leader: Devin Smith, Wisconsin; Travis Howard, Ohio State; Michael Carter, Minnesota; Landon Feichter, Purdue – 4 2013 returning leader: Landon Feichter,

Twitter: NCAA '14 team ratings raise some eyebrows

You know it’s summer when video game ratings receive as much attention as they did Tuesday afternoon. The reason for all the talk? NCAA ’14 team ratings were released, and a few of the grades were a bit interesting. Like Iowa receiving an 88 overall, the same as reigning Legends Division champ Nebraska and Wisconsin and higher than Northwestern (86), which returns most of the nucleus from a 10-win season. Here’s how the Big Ten teams stack up: 1. Ohio State 95 (97 offense, 92 defense) T-2. Michigan 91 (91, 92) T-2. Michigan State 91 (90, 93) T-4. Iowa 88
