Debate it: Team with most sense of urgency

Week 2 was a rough one. Not only did the Big Ten lose six non-conference games for the first time since 2000, it went 1-6 against BCS teams. Of the half-dozen teams that lost, which enters Week 3 with the most sense of urgency? BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina debate that topic in this post. Brent: It’s got to be Wisconsin, right? I mean, this was supposed to be the team that would have a cakewalk to its second consecutive Big Ten title game. And two games in, the usually prolific offense looks lost

Big Ten Trends: How many points will Michigan score?

Two weeks into the 2012 college football season, we are starting to see some trends take place in the Big Ten. For example, Penn State’s Allen Robinson is the most target receiver and Michigan State’s defense is very tough to score upon. These could change throughout the course of the season, of course, but I single out a trend for every Big Ten team and offer a guess as to what will happen Saturday. Also, don’t forget to cast your votes! ILLINOIS Question: How many snaps will Nathan Scheelhaase play? Analysis: The Illini quarterback is coming off an ankle injury

Illinois Can the Fighting Illini win if Nathan Scheelhaase isn’t playing quarterback? The attack struggled in a loss at Arizona State with Reilly O’Toole and Miles Osei under center with Scheelhaase out with an ankle injury. O’Toole hit 10-of-14 passes for 54 yards with

Best of Week 3: QB Vandenberg on the spot

While the Big Ten took its lumps last week in going 6-6, it has a great chance to get healthy this Saturday with a collection of games against largely inferior foes that all will take place in Big Ten venues. Without a doubt, the marquee matchup is Notre Dame at Michigan State. And Cal at Ohio State could be decent. After that, it’s a mixed lot. Charleston Southern at Illinois; Eastern Michigan at Purdue; Ball State at Indiana; Arkansas State at Nebraska; UMass at Michigan; Northern Iowa at Iowa; Boston College at Northwestern; Western Michigan at Minnesota; Navy at Penn

The week that was: Week 2's top 10 stories

The Big Ten was expecting a better result than its 6-6 clip in Week 2. It was a frustrating week, needless to say.

Dienhart: 5 things I learned in Week 2 Week 2 is in the books. It was not a great showing for the Big Ten, as it put up a 6-6 record. This from a conference that went 10-2 during the opening week. The competition

Early surprises: Wisconsin offense trumps all

Let me start this by saying we’re only two weeks into the college football season. Admittedly, that’s a very small sample size. But in the first two weeks – one good, one bad – there have been many surprises in the Big Ten. See my five biggest surprises through the first two weeks of the season in this post. 1. Wisconsin’s offensive struggles – A season ago, this unit averaged 44.1 points per game and put up 72 points in two contests against Michigan State’s dominant defense. Even with one-year star QB Russell Wilson in the NFL and a host
