Dienhart: My best of 2013 Big Ten noncon season

We have reached the one-third mark of the 2013 season. Where has the time gone? Last time I looked up from my keyboard, the kids still were splashing in the neighborhood swimming pool and the Cubs were eliminated from playoff contention. Wait, that last item happened back in June. Forget it. You get the point. Four weeks of the 2013 season are in the rearview mirror, as we head into the heart of conference play with only three non-leagues left: Northern Illinois at Purdue; Miami (Ohio) at Illinois; BYU at Wisconsin. Here is my one-third report. [ MORE: View BTN.com’s

Dienhart: Badgers move up in bowl projections

No big shakeups in my weekly bowl projections. The biggest is Wisconsin leaping past Michigan into the Capital One bowl, clashing with LSU. Of course, these schools will meet in season-opening games in 2014 (at Houston’s Reliant Stadium) and 2016 (at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field). Minnesota also has moved up to the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, where I have it playing Baylor.

BTN.com's 2013 noncon All-Big Ten Team

And just like that, the nonconference portion of the Big Ten football schedule is behind us. Now, there are still a trio of noncon games left, but it’s all about Big Ten matchups the rest of the way. With 11 of the 12 teams four games into their 2013 season, there’s no better time to release our annual noncon All-Big Ten Team.

Big Ten office hands out Week 4 individual honors

The Big Ten Conference announced its Week 4 Players of the Week on Monday.

See all the honorees and their video highlights in this post. Offensive Co-Players of the Week: Kenny Guiton, Ohio State, Sr., QB Threw six touchdowns, an Ohio State record and the second-most in Big Ten single-game history, in Ohio State’s victory over Florida A&M Completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards while playing the first half only in

Video: Army captain surprises daughter at UW game

Sometimes, words just don’t do a moment justice. Moments like the one that occurred Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium. In short: Wisconsin helped an Army Captain, Jane Renee, surprise her 13-year-old daughter with an early return from Afghanistan. As one would expect, it was powerful stuff. Check out the emotional YouTube video in this post. What. A. Moment. Anybody have a tissue? h/t: @BadgerFootball

How did we do? Week 4 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 5, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 4 Big Ten predictions.

Dienhart: 10 things I learned in Week 4

It was a busy Saturday in the Big Ten, with 10 games taking place. Michigan continues to live dangerously, no team runs like Wisconsin, Nebraska still loves Bo and the Michigan State offense still has a ways to go. I learned a lot. Take a look.

Tom’s Take: Week 4 honors, grades, top 10 & more

Week Four in the Big Ten is over. And, it was a mixed bag in what was the last big full-blown Saturday of non-conference action. The headliner game was Michigan State at Notre Dame. The Spartans came up short, as the Fighting Irish won despite notching a scant 221 yards in a 17-13 victory. For the second week in a row, Michigan barely avoided a big upset, sneaking by UConn, 24-21. The day also saw three games vs. FCS foes. And, the Big Ten won all three by an aggregate 170-41. Big Ten play began with Wisconsin trampling Purdue, 41-10. Here’s

Who's up & down in our Big Ten Power Rankings?

It’s time to get powered up with my Sunday Big Ten rankings. This Saturday didn’t provide any dramatic victories or stunning losses, so my ranking didn’t shift dramatically. But, Wisconsin did make a move, as did Minnesota, Penn State and Iowa, while Michigan State sinks the most. POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State, 4-0: Ohio State could have played with 10 guys and picked plays out of a hat and still squashed Florida A&M. Now, the real season starts for a team with a national-best 16-game winning skein. Will Braxton Miller be ready? This week: Beat Florida A&M, 76-0
