Dienhart: 12 Things To Watch for Saturday

This is the biggest week yet in the Big Ten with many marquee matchups. Each division features a headlining game with the big Legends Division matchup of Michigan State at Nebraska and the key Leaders Division clash between Wisconsin and Ohio State. Here are my 12 things to watch for this Saturday. 1. Michigan State’s emotions. The Spartans are in the midst of a brutal stretch the last three weeks that has seen them play at Ohio State, and Michigan and Wisconsin at home. Now comes a trip to Nebraska, a team in a must-win mode that has won two

Dienhart: Week 9 Big Ten Previews

The Big Ten championship game won’t be played until December 3 in Indianapolis. But a de facto Legends Division game may be taking place at Nebraska this weekend. Michigan State plays at Nebraska in a game that will go a long way toward determining who will win the Legends Division. The Spartans are the lone unbeaten team in the division. The Cornhuskers have one loss—and likely can’t afford another. Bottom line:  A win by Michigan State would give it a virtual stranglehold on the Legends Division race. “Our guys understand what is at stake,” said Nebraska coach Bo Pelini. “Every

Revsine's Numbers: Rise of the Spartans

What can I possibly say about last week’s Wisconsin-Michigan State game that hasn’t already been said by the greatest of men – or at least by those who talk about college football and publish their material in the immediate aftermath of the game? I realized there might be something wrong with me when I was on the floor in our green room so I could be as close to the TV as possible in trying to ascertain whether Keith Nichol had indeed crossed the goal line Saturday night. It did afford me a good view, though. On top of being

Dienhart: Week 9 Best Suggestions

The stretch drive of the season is entering a higher gear with two big matchups on tap in what looks like the best collection of games yet in 2011. The headliner is Michigan State at Nebraska in a key game that will determine pecking order in the Legends Division. The other tilt to watch is a big Leaders Division battle between Wisconsin at Ohio State. The Buckeyes are coming off an off week rested, ready and perhaps with a few new wrinkles. How will the Badgers respond coming off their first loss of the season? Come tell me in the

Dienhart: What I Learned in Week 8

The nation still is buzzing about Michigan State’s electric victory over Wisconsin that shook up the national title picture. But Week 8 also saw some saw quarterbacks emerge at Indiana, Penn State and Purdue. It also featured Iowa and Nebraska take care of business and show they still mean business in the Legends Division. Here are 5 things I learned: 1. No Big Ten figures to play in the BCS title game. Wisconsin’s 37-31 loss at Michigan State knocked the Badgers from the ranks of the unbeaten, leaving the Big Ten with no perfect teams. With Alabama or LSU likely

Week 9 Football Power Rankings

Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 8 featured one of the most exciting finishes in Big Ten history, as No. 16 Michigan State used a last-second Hail Mary to beat No. 6 Wisconsin. 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.

Week 8: Rank the Best Plays

Every Saturday, we post a play from each Big Ten team and let our Big Ten fans rank the week’s best plays. We’re building an archive throughout the season, so feel free to backtrack and rank any play from previous weeks. Here’s how it works: Watch each play, and then rank them, one being the lowest and 10 being the highest. Don’t forget to come back throughout the day Saturday, either, because we’ll post each team’s play immediately following its game. In other words, there will usually be three uploads – early games, afternoon games and night games. Rank our
