On the Next Big Ten Icons: Barry Alvarez

Barry Alvarez turned the Wisconsin football program into a national power during his program-record 16-year tenure in Madison, Wis. Alvarez compiled a 118-73-4 career record, won Big Ten titles in 1993, 1998 and 1999, and is the only coach to win consecutive Rose Bowls. At 11 p.m. ET Tuesday, catch the debut of Alvarez’s Big Ten Icons that spotlights the current Wisconsin athletic director’s remarkable run with the Badgers. Watch a clip of the show now. Who are the other coaches previously featured on Big Ten Icons? We profiled Nebraska’s Tom Osborne, Penn State’s Joe Paterno, Iowa’s Dan Gable and

Dienhart: Early Look Ahead to Week 11

This week is highlighted by two huge games, one in each division. The top game is Michigan State’s visit to Iowa, which is 6-0 at home and playing well. A loss by the Spartans—the only team in the division with just one division defeat–would further scramble the Legends Division race. In the Leaders Division, all eyes will be on Nebraska’s visit to Penn State, the only team in the division that controls its destiny. Following is a sneak peek at this week’s games. Note: Indiana is off this week. No. 22 Michigan State (7-2, 4-1) at Iowa (6-3, 3-2), Noon

Back And Forth: Big Ten's Best RB

Like running backs? You’re in luck, because the position is becoming a point of strength in the Big Ten this season (see the stats). There’s Iowa’s Marcus Coker, Nebraska’s Rex Burkhead, Ohio State’s Dan Herron, Penn State’s Silas Redd and Wisconsin’s Montee Ball. But who’s the best of the bunch? That’s the topic BTN web editor Brent Yarina and BTN senior writer Tom Dienhart discussed over email Monday. Read the entire thread in this post. Brent:  There’s a ton of Big Ten running backs having really good seasons this year. I saw in your latest trophy tracker that you had

Dienhart: Weekly Bowl Projections

Eight teams—four from each division—are bowl eligible, filling all of the Big Ten’s bowl slots. For now, I just don’t see the Big Ten getting a second BCS bowl slot, but there’s still lots of football left. Penn State is the lone Leaders Division team that controls its destiny, but the Nittany Lions have a tough stretch run beginning this Saturday with a visit from Nebraska followed by trips to Ohio State and Wisconsin. That rugged run gives hope to Ohio State and Wisconsin, who each are two games behind Penn State in the Leaders. Michigan State and Iowa each

Dienhart: Big Ten Trophy Tracker

The Big Ten Trophy Tracker is coming into sharper focus as the season hits the final stretch. With only three week left in the season, there’s a new player on top of Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year checklist. And it’s a big, physical running back from the Legends Division who just may carry his team to the Big Ten title game. See senior writer Tom Dienhart’s top 3 candidates for all 14 of the inaugural postseason trophies in this post. BIG TEN TROPHY TRACKER Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year 1.

The Big Ten Conference announced its Week 10 Football Players of the Week on Monday morning. Five players were recognized, including Co-Offensive Player Kain Colter, who filled in for an injured Dan Persa in the second half to lead Northwestern to an upset win at ranked Nebraska.

Week 11 Football Power Rankings

Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 10 featured a big-time upset, as Northwestern went into Memorial Stadium and upset previously streaking Nebraska. As for the power rankings, they are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply Brent’s thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands after its latest game and entering its next contest. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina. 1. Wisconsin (7-2, 3-2) – OK, now that the Badgers have gotten those back-to-back last-minute road losses out of their

Dienhart: What I Learned in Week 10

The first Saturday in November was filled with a big surprise: Northwestern winning at Nebraska. That scrambled the Legends Division race, which may come down to a battle between Michigan State and Iowa. Here’s what else I learned on Saturday. 1. The move to divisional play has been genius. With the season coming down the home stretch, there are multiple teams still in the running for division crowns. In the Legends, Michigan State and Iowa are sitting best with each controlling their own destiny, but Nebraska and Michigan still could be factors with hot finishes and some help. Penn State—which

Dienhart: Week 10 Snap Reactions

Following the action every Saturday, senior writer Tom Dienhart breaks down what every game, every result means for the teams involved and the Big Ten itself. Week 10 featured a quartet of close games that were in doubt into the fourth quarter, and you can find Tom’s analysis in this post. Ohio State 34, Indiana 20 What it means for Ohio State: The Buckeyes’ third victory in a row keeps them in the thick of the Leaders Division race. But winning out—at Purdue; Penn State; at Michigan—will be tough unless Braxton Miller passes better. He ran for 104 yards
