Before we turn our attention to Week 11, we need to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 10 predictions. Believe it or not, we all went a perfect 5-0 in a week that, to be honest, wasn’t littered with many tough games. So, we’ll enter Week 11 with BTN.com fans and Dienhart tied for the top spot.

Week 11 Power Rankings: Don't sleep on Indiana

Not a lot of movement in my latest Power Rankings following Week 10 of the season, as Ohio State and Nebraska retained possession of the top two spots. Indiana was the biggest mover, as it continued to turn heads with a home win over Iowa. See where all 12 teams land this week in this post. 1. Ohio State (10, 6-0). The Buckeyes moved to 10-0 with a 52-22 win over Illinois. Now, Ohio State has a week off to prep for the last two games. And they are biggies: at Wisconsin and vs. Michigan. Can Ohio State finish the

Tom's Top 10: Would OSU beat other perfect teams?

Another week is in the books. The AP and Coaches polls are out. Now, it’s time to release my Top 10 for the week. Here’s a look at the good, the bad and the whatever-the-heck-I-feel-like-looking-at as I glance back on Saturday from my Sunday perch. 1. Is there a more thrilling team in the nation than Nebraska? In fact, it is No. 1 on the Cardiac Poll. The Cornhuskers are making a habit of rallying for thrilling wins. There was a 17-point comeback vs. Wisconsin; a 12-point comeback at Northwestern; a 10-point comeback at Michigan State. Keep those digitalis handy,

McGloin, Penn State dominate Purdue, 34-7

Matt McGloin passed for 321 yards and two touchdowns to help Penn State defeat Purdue 34-9 on Saturday. Brandon Moseby-Felder had six catches for 129 yards, Zach Zwinak ran for 134 yards and Michael Zordich ran for two touchdowns for the Nittany Lions (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten), who bounced back from a loss to Ohio State. Caleb TerBush passed for 155 yards and a touchdown and Antavian Edison had nine catches for 93 yards and a score for the Boilermakers (3-6, 0-5), who have lost five straight and now will need to win out to become bowl eligible. The pressure

3rd quarter recap: Penn State 34, Purdue 3

Penn State put up 14 points in the third, and the Nittany Lions now lead 34-3. Penn State threw for 93 yards and ran for 61 yards in the quarter. The Nittany Lions opened up the lead, 27-3, after marching down the field for a seven-play, 80-yard drive that ended when Matt McGloin found Jesse James open for a 12-yard touchdown pass. Penn State added to its advantage when McGloin tossed a 41-yard touchdown to Brandon Moseby-Felder, the finishing touch on a six-play, 75-yard drive to give the Nittany Lions the lead, 34-3. Penn State’s Moseby-Felder hauled in two catches

2nd quarter recap: Penn State 20, Purdue 3

Penn State put on a defensive clinic in the second, as Purdue finished with negative rushing yardage (-13 yards), and the Nittany Lions now lead 20-3. Penn State opened up the lead, 13-3, after marching down the field for an eight-play, 65-yard drive that ended when Sam Ficken made a 24-yard field goal. The Nittany Lions used Matt McGloin’s 35-yard pass to Jesse James to fuel the drive. Penn State expanded its lead to 20-3 thanks to a five-play, 55-yard drive that ended when Michael Zordich ran five yards to paydirt. The Nittany Lions will have possession to start the

1st quarter recap: Penn State 10, Purdue 3

Penn State’s secondary stifled the passing game, allowing just 31 yards through the air to Purdue in the first quarter and the Nittany Lions lead 10-3 at the end of the first quarter. The Boilermakers took the game’s first lead after Sam McCartney made a 20-yard field goal on the last play of a seven-play, 49-yard drive. Purdue’s drive was keyed by Akeem Shavers’ 37-yard run. The Boilermakers had to settle for a field goal after failing to reach the endzone from Penn State’s three-yard line. The Nittany Lions got even after Sam Ficken kicked a 27-yard field goal to

Numbers: Crunching stats for title time

November is upon us. It used to be the month when championships were decided. How very 2010. Now, it’s the month when spots in the Championship Game are decided. All in the name of progress… In an odd scheduling quirk, there is just one game in the early window on Saturday – as Minnesota and Michigan battle for the Little Brown Jug in a game you can see on BTN/BTN2Go. Obviously, much of the focus will be on the health of Michigan’s Denard Robinson, after he left the Nebraska game Saturday with an elbow injury. Without him, the Wolverines offense
