Week 3 previews: This will be a fun Saturday!

This is by far the best slate of games of the short 2013 season. The Saturday menu is highlighted by four games vs. Pac-12 schools—Illinois vs. Washington in Chicago; Wisconsin at Arizona State; UCLA at Nebraska; Ohio State at Cal. Purdue also gets its annual crack at Notre Dame, adding more name-brand appeal to the weekend. And we have in-state rivals Iowa-Iowa State clashing. Here are my previews of this week’s games.

Listen to your Big Ten football coach

Each Tuesday morning during the Big Ten football season, the 12 Big Ten football coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio for each segment of the call here, and we do this every Tuesday afternoon. Also, @B1Gfootball spotlights a tweet or three from each coach on the call live on Twitter in case you want to follow along online.

Video: Watch Week 2 Big Ten touchdowns

Every week during the Big Ten football season, BTN.com video editors compile all of the Big Ten touchdowns. As expected, with 12 games in Week 2, including several against far inferior foes, there were a lot of scores. Do you have a favorite touchdown from the past week? If not, watch this clip and see all of the contenders. Even if you do, relieve all the scores again. There were too many great touchdowns for us to single one out, but there’s no doubt this is our favorite photo of a Big Ten touchdown.

Dienhart: Ranking the non-con wins halfway through

We are halfway through the non-conference season. Can you believe it? And, so far, so good for the Big Ten, which has gone 21-3. The losses: Purdue at Cincinnati, 42-7; Iowa to Northern Illinois, 30-27; Indiana to Navy, 41-35. None of those are shameful. And there have been some impressive wins. Some big matchups loom. This Saturday, we have UCLA at Nebraska; Wisconsin at Arizona State; Ohio State at Cal; Washington vs. Illinois in Chicago. On Sept. 21, we have Michigan State at Notre Dame. Here is how I rank the Big Ten non-conference wins through two weeks: 1. Michigan

Week 3 Bowl Projections: Badgers vs. Bielema?

Another week, another round of bowl projections. Just one Big Ten team lost on Saturday, with Indiana falling at home to Navy, 41-35. The other 11 schools won. But my bowl projections have changed—at least the lower-tier bowl projections. The big winner this week: Illinois, which surprised everyone with a relatively easy 45-17 home win over Cincinnati. The Fighting Illini’s rise, coupled with Indiana’s loss and Michigan State’s second consecutive unimpressive victory, was the agent for change. As a result, Illinois is now in my projections, going from out of my bowl picture all the way to the Buffalo Wild

Tom's Take: My Week 2 honors, grades, top 10 & more

Michigan’s pulsating 41-30 victory over Notre Dame capped another strong week for the Big Ten, which went 11-1 after opening 10-2 last week. It also showed that Brady Hoke’s Wolverines should be taken seriously. Very seriously. Through two weeks, the Big Ten is 21-3, the losses coming at Cincinnati (Purdue) vs. Northern Illinois (Iowa) and vs. Navy (Indiana). Week 2 saw a lot of great performances—and some that deserve scrutiny. It’s all right here. Enjoy!

Power Rankings: How high did 2-0 Illini ascend?

We have two weeks in the books, and teams continue to jockey for position in my weekly power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Here is how I stack the Big Ten schools following two weeks of action. Keep an eraser handy. POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State. The good news, the Buckeyes rolled. The bad news, Braxton Miller got hurt, but we are told his left will be OK for next week’s trip to Cal. I hope so. Oh, that’s 14 wins in a row for Ohio State, the longest winning streak in America. Last week: No. 1 Up next:

How did we do? Week 2 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 3, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 2 Big Ten predictions. One week after going perfect, BTN’s Sean Merriman and Stephen Bardo both went 9-3 to create a logjam at the top of the standings. Big Ten fans, you all went 10-2, pushing your season record to 21-3.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 2

Another week is in the books. There has been a lot to be impressed with over the first two weeks of the season, with strong starts by teams like Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn State and Ohio State, among others. Saturday provided some clarity, but much remains unknown. Here is what I learned in Week 2. [ MORE: Dienhart’s Week 2 honors, grades & more | Power Rankings ] 1.
