Final Football Power Rankings

Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 13 saw Wisconsin clinch the Leaders 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. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina. 1. Wisconsin (10-2, 6-2) – Here’s a stat for you: Montee Ball hasn’t run for fewer than 156 yards or scored fewer than three touchdowns

Dienhart: Week 13 Snap Reactions

Following the action every Saturday, 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 13 Snap Reactions in this post. Michigan State 31, Northwestern 17. Despite essentially having nothing to play for, the Spartans showed laser focus in dispatching a Wildcat team that had won four in a row. Now Michigan State advances to the Big Ten title game in a rematch with Wisconsin, needing a win to advance to the program’s first Rose Bowl since the 1988 season. Purdue 33, Indiana 25. The

U.S. Marines Corps: Leaders of the Week has a new staple every Saturday night. It’s called “United States Marine Corps: Leaders of the Week,” and it’s a feature designed to honor the best from every weekend of Big Ten action. Find the top performances and quotes from Week 13 in this post. Rex Burkhead, Nebraska – The Huskers running back received a school-record 36 carries the day after Thanksgiving, and he took advantage of it, running for 160 yards and a touchdown in Nebraska’s victory over Iowa on senior day in Lincoln. Lavonte David, Nebraska – Another week, another impressive day from David, as the star

Purdue tops Indiana, takes back Bucket

(AP) Ralph Bolden scored one touchdown, Caleb TerBush threw for another and Carson Wiggs made four field goals Saturday to lead Purdue past Indiana 33-25 for the Old Oaken Bucket. The victory makes Purdue (6-6, 4-4 Big Ten) bowl-eligible for the first time under coach Danny Hope. But the Boilermakers are not guaranteed a bowl spot because 10 Big Ten teams are eligible for the league’s eight bowl berths. The milestone victory also was tarnished by a third-quarter injury to Bolden, who appeared to injure his right knee and did not finish the game. Indiana (1-10, 0-8) finished the season

Dienhart: Previewing Saturday's Games

This is it, the final weekend of the season. Penn State will play at Wisconsin to decide which school will represent the Leaders Division vs. Michigan State in the inaugural Big Ten title game. Michigan is looking to end Ohio State’s run of seven wins in a row in their iconic rivalry. Purdue is looking to win back the Old Oaken Bucket and become bowl eligible for the first time since 2007. Iowa and Nebraska kick off the start of what could become a great rivalry. And Illinois is looking to end a five-game losing streak before the postseason. Following

Revsine's Numbers: Big Games in Week 13

The last week of the regular season is upon us. While Ohio State vs. Michigan is always going to be the Big Ten’s biggest rivalry, the biggest game this weekend is in Madison where Penn State and Wisconsin play for the right to represent the Leaders Division in the first-ever Big Ten Championship Game. It’s a Penn State team that showed great resolve in its win over Ohio State on Saturday. I thought the Nittany Lions might be emotionally drained after the events of the past couple of weeks. I was wrong. On top of that, the coaching staff inserted

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
