Best of Week 11: Big Legends Division clash in Ann Arbor

The loser will have a difficult time getting back into the division hunt. There also is a rare November non-conference tilt, with BYU playing at Wisconsin. Beware, Badgers. This looks like a tough game. And we also may see Iowa become bowl eligible with a win at Purdue. Illinois returns to Indiana, where it won its last Big Ten game in 2011. Since then, the Illini have dropped 18 league games in succession. Will

USA Today ranks football coach salaries

The always popular USA Today salary ranking is out for college football coaches, and Alabama’s Nick Saban is on top with a whopping $5.5 million salary in total compensation.

The Big Ten is well-represented with three coaches among the top 10. The top-paid Big Ten boss? Do you have to ask? It’s Ohio State’s Urban Meyer at $4.6 million, which ranks No. 6 in the nation.
