1st quarter recap: Wisconsin 7, Purdue 7

Wisconsin’s Jacob Pedersen caught a 21-yard touchdown pass in the quarter, and the two teams are tied 7-7 at the end of the first.

Revsine: Crunch these Week 7 football stats

Is it me, or has this Urban Meyer fellow had a bit of an impact at Ohio State?  I know there are still some issues with this team – a bit too reliant on Braxton Miller, a tad shaky at times on defense – but that was still a pretty impressive performance on Saturday night. I really thought going into the game that you could construct an argument that Nebraska was the best team in the Big Ten. I thought wrong. Though most teams are a pretty safe bet to win when they score 63 points, it turns out the

Best of Week 7: De facto Leaders title game?

This isn’t a great weekend for games, especially with Nebraska and Penn State off. And the league’s two best teams appear to be in mismatches, with Michigan hosting Illinois and Ohio State visiting Indiana. But there are three games with some intrigue. Wisconsin’s visit to Purdue will go a long way in shaping a muddled Leaders Division race. The winner figures to have pole position to earn the division’s spot in the Big Ten title game with Ohio State and Penn State on NCAA probation and ineligible. Northwestern’s visit to Minnesota lost some juice when the Wildcats suffered their first

Dienhart: My bowl projections as race shapes up

Six weeks are in the books, and the bowl picture is coming into a bit sharper focus … a bit. To review: The Big Ten has tie-ins with eight bowls—but it has only 10 bowl-eligible schools, as Penn State and Ohio State are banned from the postseason in 2012. [RELATED: View our 2012-2013 bowl schedule] With conference play here, schools now are beating up on each other, alternately helping and hurting each program’s bowl stock. The Big Ten should be able to fill all of its slots, with only Illinois and Indiana not in a bowl for now. And while
