Dienhart: Q&A with Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis

The Wisconsin offense has had its ups and downs this season. It’s no secret. Wideout Jared Abbrederis knows it. But the unit may be coming to life after a solid effort in a 31-14 victory vs. Illinois last week that saw the Badgers notch 427 yards. Abbrederis and his offensive counterparts will do their part to keep the offense moving forward with a big game at Purdue this Saturday that will go a long way toward determining pecking order in the Leaders Division. The junior has 27 catches for 516 yards and a Big Ten-high five touchdowns—all team-leading totals for

Lande's Big Board: New name debuts on latest list

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for BTN NFL draft expert Russ Lande to reveal his latest Big Ten Big Board. Lande did just that on “The Next Level,” and the top six guys stayed the same. There’s a new name making its season debut this week: Michigan State’s Dion Sims, at No. 9. Watch Lande break down his Big Board, with a spotlight on Wisconsin’s Montee Ball, now and catch our interview with Ball in this post.

Dienhart: 12 questions for Week 7

Week 7 is at our doorstep, but the questions keep coming. Here are my most vexing queries for each Big Ten team with Saturday just around the corner.

'Elite' reviews Badgers' magical 1993 team

Tonight at 8 p.m. ET on the next episode of “Big Ten Elite” we look at one of the defining seasons of Wisconsin football. Barry Alvarez took over a program that was at the bottom of the Big Ten in 1990, but by his fourth season the Badgers were on the rise. Few could have seen that this group of overachievers would win the 1993 Big Ten title and the Rose Bowl. Relive how the Badgers announced the return to college football’s elite – including their victory over Michigan and the season-ending trip to Tokyo to face Michigan State that

Best of Week 7: De facto Leaders title game?

This isn’t a great weekend for games, especially with Nebraska and Penn State off. And the league’s two best teams appear to be in mismatches, with Michigan hosting Illinois and Ohio State visiting Indiana. But there are three games with some intrigue. Wisconsin’s visit to Purdue will go a long way in shaping a muddled Leaders Division race. The winner figures to have pole position to earn the division’s spot in the Big Ten title game with Ohio State and Penn State on NCAA probation and ineligible. Northwestern’s visit to Minnesota lost some juice when the Wildcats suffered their first

Dienhart: My bowl projections as race shapes up

Six weeks are in the books, and the bowl picture is coming into a bit sharper focus … a bit. To review: The Big Ten has tie-ins with eight bowls—but it has only 10 bowl-eligible schools, as Penn State and Ohio State are banned from the postseason in 2012. [RELATED: View our 2012-2013 bowl schedule] With conference play here, schools now are beating up on each other, alternately helping and hurting each program’s bowl stock. The Big Ten should be able to fill all of its slots, with only Illinois and Indiana not in a bowl for now. And while

Week 7 Player Rankings: McGloin stays hot

With Week 6 behind us, it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Again, I’m doing these a little different this year. Whereas I used to rank the top 10 players – a practice that was tough due to all the talent on both sides of the ball – I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six of both? Because it opens up the field, plus there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.

Power Rankings: Wolverines moving on up

How about them Wolverines? Michigan went into West Lafayette and dominated a pretty good Purdue team Saturday afternoon. The performance was exactly what Michigan needed in its first action since struggling at Notre Dame. But what did the 44-13 victory do for the Wolverines’ stock in my latest Power Rankings? Find out in this post. Disagree? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below or tweet me (@BTNTomDienhart). 1. Ohio State (6-0, 2-0). After muzzling Michigan State last week on the road with a great defensive effort and then clubbing red-shot Nebraska with an offensive explosion in a 63-38 victory,

How did we do? Week 6 picks revisited

We’ve reached the midpoint of the 2012 Big Ten football season. Before we turn our complete attention to Week 7, though, we need to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 6 predictions. Dienhart led the way, going 4-1, while BTN.com fans and I went 3-2. After six weeks, that means it’s BTN.com fans and Dienhart tied for the top spot, at 44-13.
