Dienhart: Week 13 Best Suggestions

The Michigan-Ohio State game is the annual exclamation mark on the Big Ten season. This year’s storyline: Can the Wolverines end the Buckeyes’ seven-season run of dominance? A Wolverine victory not only would ease the pain for Michigan fans, but it also will enhance the team’s resume in its bid to earn a BCS at-large bowl slot. While Michigan-Ohio State will take a big stage this Saturday, it still must play second fiddle to the Penn State at Wisconsin tilt when it comes to importance on the 2011 season. The Nittany Lions already have claimed a share of the Leaders

This is it: A de facto Leaders Division title

Week 13 Football Power Rankings

Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 12 saw Michigan State clinch the Legends Division and a spot in the Big Ten title game. As for the power rankings, they are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply Brent’s thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands after its latest game and entering its next contest. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina. 1. Wisconsin (9-2, 5-2) – Even with a season-low 285 total yards, the Badgers managed to score 28 points

Dienhart: What I Learned in Week 12

An interesting Saturday saw champions crowned in each division and one team clinch a spot in the inaugural Big Ten title game. Northwestern also became bowl eligible for a school-record fifth season in a row. But what else did I learn this weekend? 1. Wisconsin and Michigan State are the best teams. And, you know what? It’s not really close. The Badgers showed resiliency and moxie in willing themselves to a workmanlike 28-17 win at Illinois. That sets up a winner-takes-all game when Penn State visits Madison next Saturday. Meanwhile, the Spartans looked thoroughly dominating in dispatching Indiana, 55-3. It

Dienhart: Week 12 Snap Reactions

Following the action every Saturday, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart breaks down what every game, every result means for the teams involved and the Big Ten itself. See Tom’s Week 12 Snap Reactions in this post. Iowa 31, Purdue 21 WHAT IT MEANS: The Boilermakers have to wait another week to try to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2007. The Hawkeye defense yielded just one meaningful touchdown and held Purdue to under 300 yards. Not bad for a unit that has been maligned all season. Iowa’s offensive triplets were stellar, as QB James Vandenberg had 273 yards
