How did we do? Week 9 Big Ten predictions revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 10, it's time to revisit how the BTN.com team, Penn State beat writer Audrey Snyder and Big Ten fans did with their Week 9 Big Ten game predictions. See the latest standings inside!

Watch Minnesota football's video tribute to Jerry Kill

Minnesota honored recently retired football coach Jerry Kill during Saturday night’s rivalry game vs. No. 15 Michigan. [ MORE: Dienhart: Kill was one of the game’s best coaches, people | Remember these Kill moments? ] During a timeout midway through the first quarter, the school aired a video tribute on the big board to the coach who retired Wednesday due to health concerns. The fans loved it, giving Kill, who was not in attendance, a standing ovation and chanting “Jerry! Jerry!” The video included highlights and behind-the-scenes moments from Kill’s Minnesota tenure, which lasted four-plus seasons and included a 29-29

Dienhart: Hackenberg has Penn State rolling down the stretch

It all looked so easy for Christian Hackenberg. [ MORE: Week 9 scoreboard | Big Ten standings | Big Ten stats ] – Twenty-two yards to Saquon Barkley. – Nineteen yards to Chris Godwin. – Thirty-one yards to DeAndre Thompkins. And on it went all afternoon for the Penn State junior signal-caller in a dominating 39-0 win vs. Illinois in which he hit 21-of-29 attempts for 266 yards with two touchdowns. He even caught a 14-yard TD pass. It’s all clicking for Hackenberg in 2015, his third season in State College. And, it’s shaping up as his best season yet

Photos: Big Ten fans, mascots, players celebrate Halloween

It’s Halloween, and that fact was very evident if one watched any college football Saturday. [ MORE: Catch up on all of the Week 9 Big Ten football action ] Pretty much anywhere you looked, the signs were visible. Camera men? Check! Fans? Check! Mascots? Check! Big Ten players, post-game? Check! As mentioned above, the costumes were all over. See some of our favorite Big Ten Halloween costumes below: The mascots, of course, got in on the fun:

Watch Jack Gangwish thank fans after loss at Purdue

There’s a pretty good chance no one feels worse about Nebraska’s 3-6 start than Jack Gangwish. [ MORE: Catch up on all of the Week 9 Big Ten football action ] The son of a Nebraska letterwinner, also a team captain and a former walk-on defensive end, Gangwish is well aware of what it means to wear Nebraska’s iconic scarlet and cream. Remember his reaction to receiving his Blackshirt? Watch it here. So, following Nebraska’s disappointing 55-45 loss Saturday afternoon at Purdue, it wasn’t a huge surprise to see that it was Gangwish who went into the stands to thank

Watch Iowa TE George Kittle make one-handed diving catch

Think the Iowa offense is all about C.J. Beathard, a strong offensive line, and a long list of running backs? [ MORE: Watch Saquon Barkley explode on hurdle | Watch Tanner McEvoy INT ] That’s not the case. The Hawkeyes have playmakers in the receiving game, too, and tight end George Kittle is the latest example. Kittle made a diving one-handed grab of a Beathard pass late in the first quarter vs. Maryland that was as pretty as any one-handed catch college football fans will see today. Watch the highlight catch in the video above. *** Watch our Week 9

Minnesota to wear all-anthracite alternate vs. Michigan

We’ve seen Purdue rock an all-anthracite Nike alternate uniform, and now we’ll see Minnesota, another Nike school, do the same. [ MORE: See a photo gallery of the new alternate uniform ] The Gophers will debut the new uniform combination in Tracy Claeys’ debut as interim coach vs. Michigan at 7 p.m. ET Saturday night. Minnesota’s school colors are maroon and gold, of course, but, as the tweet reads, the players (and recruits) love these kind of designs. The people who subscribe to old-school ideals probably won’t like this design, especially not in a game where the Little Brown Jug

Watch Saquon Barkley's ridiculous hurdle on Penn State TD run

Saquon Barkley is as exciting as any college football player with the ball in his hands. [ MORE: Get all Week 9 Big Ten football scores and stats ] The Penn State true freshman running back drops Big Ten fans’ jaws on a weekly basis. In Saturday afternoon’s 39-0 win vs. Illinois, Barkley ripped off a 7-yard scoring run, highlighted by a ground-covering hurdle, that will put him on all of the national highlight shows. Barkley took the direct snap inside Illinois’ 10-yard line, ran to his right, bounced it further outside, and left his feet from the 4-yard line

#BTNStandout: Tanner McEvoy's INT off Joe Schobert's helmet

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, they say, and college football fans witnessed a quick example of it in the Rutgers-Wisconsin game on Saturday. [ MORE: Get all Week 9 Big Ten football scores and stats ] The Badgers recorded a highlight-reel interception that deflected off the back of star linebacker Joe Schobert’s helmet and into safety Tanner McEvoy’s hands. To be fair, the interception wasn’t all luck. Schobert was in the right place and provided great coverage, and McEvoy had to make a tough catch, near the sideline and all.
