The last time we saw Ezekiel Elliott he was running all over teams like Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon. Will the Big Ten's returning leader in touchdown runs finish atop the leaderboard this fall?

As great as Melvin Gordon's 2014 regular season was, Ezekiel Elliott's postseason was, perhaps, even greater. Will Elliott lead the Big Ten in rushing this fall? See our panel's predictions.
Not only did Sports Illustrated put Ohio State on one of its four regional college football covers, it ranked the reigning national champ No. 1 in its preseason top 25 poll. The Buckeyes, who also topped the preseason Amway Coaches Poll, beat out Auburn for the top spot in the poll, released Wednesday. TCU, Notre Dame and Alabama round out the top 5. Michigan State lands at No. 7, and Wisconsin at No. 24 to account for the publication’s ranked Big Ten teams.

Where’s Jim Harbaugh? Did you see him? Did you hear what he said? And so it went at Big Ten media days last week. Everyone with a pen and notebook was on the lookout for the new Michigan coach. Heck, we tracked the guy’s day! Harbaugh didn’t disappoint in Chicago. He charmed. He transfixed. He mesmerized.

How bad has it been? Michigan hasn’t won the Big Ten
Woody and Bo. Bo and Woody. The names conjure images of dominance hearkening to the epic “10-Year War,” from 1969-78, during which Bo Schembechler’s Michigan teams and Woody Hayes’ Ohio State squads so dominated the Big Ten that the conference became known as the “Big Two and Little Eight.” Purdue? Indiana? Michigan State? Illinois? Minnesota? All the others? Hapless punching bags to the goliaths that were the Wolverines and Buckeyes, who routinely were ranked in the top five in the country while churning out myriad stars. Now, Ohio State and Michigan look primed to declare war again on the rest
Late last week, I asked seven Big Ten players to give me a true freshman who has stood out to them thus far, and who could potentially make an impact in the upcoming 2015 season. Here is part two of the piece, featuring the picks for Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue and Rutgers. Jehu Chesson, Michigan: Alex Malzone, QB. He’s a cool kid. When he first came on campus, he already possessed a lot of things I personally look for in a freshman, especially when it’s a guy who’s going to be throwing me the ball. I look
One of the ways great stories come to life is through interesting photos. And we regularly come across some captivating shots in our search for remarkable stories about students, faculty and alumni throughout the Big Ten. We include many of these pictures with the articles we publish, and we also curate some of the best ones on the BTN LiveBIG Instagram profile. Here are a few of our recent favorites: Walkin’ It Out in Iowa Thanh Tien Nguyen (Class of 2018) models an ensemble representing East Asian fashion at the University of Iowa’s annual Walk It Out fashion show, held
