And the Spartans don’t just have a good defense; they

Best of Week 12: All eyes on MSU-Nebraska

An interesting Saturday of action is headlined by what could be the Big Ten Game of the Year: Michigan State at Nebraska. Ohio State will look to remain unbeaten when it plays at Illinois. The Buckeyes have owned Illinois, winning the last five meetings and eight of the last nine. The lone Fighting Illini victory in that stretch was when they stunned No. 1 Ohio State in Columbus in 2007 on the way to the Rose Bowl. The Buckeyes haven’t lost in Champaign since 1991. Michigan (two losses in a row) plays at Northwestern (five losses in a row) in

Bowl Projections: Ohio State still smelling roses

Ohio State saw its stock rise in the BCS standings—and it didn’t even play. Oregon’s loss to Stanford on Thursday allowed the Buckeyes to move from No. 4 to No. 3 in the BCS standings, one spot closer to being in position to play for the national championship. Will Ohio State get there? No. 1 Alabama has some tough games left, including a game at Auburn. No. 2 Florida State doesn’t really have any scary games left. Bottom line: There is still hope for the Buckeyes, but they will need help even if they win out. For Wisconsin to be

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 11

Week 11 of the season was eye-opening on many levels. Nebraska is still alive and kicking with a chance to win the Legends Division, while Michigan is still searching for answers. And then there’s Minnesota, which keeps on authoring a new amazing chapter in its storybook season. Here is what I learned. 1. The Big Ten is loaded with good running backs. In fact, no conference may have a better collection. Take your pick from the likes of Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde, Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and James White, Minnesota’s David Cobb, Indiana’s Tevin Coleman and Stephen Houston,
