Week 13 Power Rankings: Ohio State stays on top

Some high drama on Saturday, headed by Ohio State’s 21-14 overtime win at Wisconsin. But no upsets. What’s it all mean? My weekly power rankings didn’t change much as we head toward the last week of the regular-season. But there’s still time for some chaos next Saturday! 1. Ohio State. The beat goes on for the Buckeyes, who moved to 11-0 with a 21-14 overtime win at Wisconsin. And what really was impressive was the fact Ohio State escaped Madison despite not playing well on offense. Last week: 1 Next: Michigan [RELATED: Dienhart: Defense wins this one for Ohio State]

How did we do? Week 12 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 13, it’s time to review how fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 12 predictions. It was a perfect showing for fans, which means they jump Dienhart and move into sole possession of first place. Dienhart and I both went 5-1, as we incorrectly picked Michigan State to beat Northwestern. SEASON RECORDS fans: 69-21; .767 Tom: 68-22; .755 Brent: 64-26; .711 Penn State 45, Indiana 22 Tom’s pick: Penn State, 44-21 – Expect another big game from Nittany Lions running back Zach Zwinak, which will fuel play-action

Purdue edges Illinois, moves closer to bowl game

Akeem Hunt turned a short pass into a 63-yard touchdown, and Purdue took another step toward a second consecutive bowl berth with a 20-17 victory at Illinois on Saturday. Hunt’s big play gave the Boilermakers (5-6, 2-5 Big Ten) a 13-3 lead in the third quarter. After Illinois pulled within 13-10 on a 16-yard touchdown run by Dami Ayoola, Ralph Bolden‘s 63-yard run set up Akeem Shavers‘ 6-yard TD scamper for a 20-10 Purdue lead.

Dienhart: Battered Marve aims for bowl bid

You can’t help but notice the clunky brace on Robert Marve’s left knee. It wasn’t there way back in 2007, when Marve was one of the nation’s hottest shots, a can’t-miss prospect from Plant High School in Tampa, Fla. Name a school, any school, and Marve could have gone to it. Now, six years later, Marve is finishing out his college career in relative obscurity and far from the national spotlight. A Heisman contender? An All-American? A first-team All-Big Ten choice? Nope. Nope. Nope. There are a number of reasons why Marve’s career never fulfilled expectations. The biggest is because
