Three Big Ten teams ranked in Coaches Poll

With Michigan‘s loss Saturday night at Notre Dame, the Big Ten now has three teams ranked in the Coaches Poll, released Sunday. The Wolverines, previously No. 18, fell out of the poll, while Michigan State (No. 18), Nebraska (No. 20) and Wisconsin (No. 23) all moved up following victories. Perfect Northwestern is receiving 96 votes, just two behind Virginia Tech and Rutgers, which are tied at No. 25. Michigan (57), Minnesota (11) and Purdue (4) also are receiving votes.

U.S. Marines Corps: Leaders of Week 4

Every Saturday night during the college football season, BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina hands out his weekly Big Ten game balls. The series is called “U.S. Marines Corps: Leaders of the Week,” and it’s designed to spotlight the Big Ten’s top individual performances. Who took home the honors from Week 4? Find out in this post. WEEK 4 GAME BALLS 1. Rex Burkhead, RB, Nebraska: 8 car., 119 yards, 2 TD; 1 rec., 25 yards – Looks like that injured left knee is just fine, huh? Burkhead, in his first action since the season opener, rushed for 119 yards and

Wisconsin loses Montee Ball, takes down UTEP

James White rushed for a pair of touchdowns Saturday, helping Wisconsin overcome the early loss of Montee Ball in a 37-26 victory over UTEP. Ball suffered a head injury on a 1-yard scoring run at the start of the second quarter, and was on the sidelines in street clothes for the second half. It was a tough day all around for the Heisman Trophy finalist, who had the first fumble of his career on Wisconsin’s opening drive. [AP: Montee Ball out of game with head injury] Despite the victory, this was another shaky outing for the Badgers (3-1). The Miners

Big Ten Connect: Great fan photos from Twitter

Earlier this fall we launched BTN Connect, a great place to go during Saturday football games to track the Twitter conversations surrounding your teams, vote in TV polls, and find out what names are trending. For instance, when Michigan State’s Le’Veon Bell made the leap (see video in this post), his name took off on Twitter. But we also collect the best of the fan photos out there and lay them out on the school pages. How do we find them? Among other ways, we monitor each of the 12 Twitter hashtags. We’ve spotlighted a few of the latest photos

Dienhart: My Big Ten questions for Week 4

As I do every Wednesday, I have questions that I hope are answered Saturday. One week away from the start of Big Ten play, here are my most pressing queries for the 10 Big Ten teams in action this week. Read all of my Big Ten coverage here and don’t forget to send any of your questions my way for my weekly Big Ten Mailbag. Illinois Will Nathan Scheelhaase be back?

Week 2 Big Ten NFL standouts

Every Tuesday morning during the NFL season, Brent Yarina singles out the best offensive, defensive and special teams performances by Big Ten products and links to their NFL.com highlights. View all the former Big Ten players on NFL active rosters. See Brent’s Week 2 winners in this post. OFFENSE: Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle – As was the case in Week 1, it wasn’t a very strong week for Big Ten offensive standouts. That said, Wilson completed 15-of-20 passes (75 percent) for 151 yards and a touchdown en route to picking up his first NFL win, a 27-7 triumph over Dallas

Week 4 Player Rankings: PSU WR debuts on list

With Week 3 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. OFFENSE 1. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio
