Soccer Report: A close look at the men's tourney

Penn State and Northwestern were both crowned Big Ten regular season champions on Saturday, as Michigan State failed to jump a Michigan hurdle in Ann Arbor. Losing to their close friends was one thing, but knowing that more clinical finishing would have giving them their first title since 2008 must be frustrating for Damon Rensing and his troops.

Soccer Report: Spooky goals draw my attention

Is it Halloween already, because I witnessed some freaky stuff on Big Ten pitches over the weekend! Northwestern moved to 3-0-0 in conference play, thanks to a goal that will haunt John Bluem for some time. As a defender, one of the first things you are taught is never, and I mean NEVER, let the ball bounce inside the six-yard box.
