Which first-year Big Ten coach wins the most games in 2015?

Which first-year Big Ten coach will win the most games in 2015: Nebraska’s Mike Riley, Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst or Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh? Each is off to a 1-1 start this season. And each coach teems with promise and potential. I asked some leading college football media members what they thought. Read what they told me. Bill Bender, Sporting News: Paul Chryst. Look at the schedule. No Ohio State, Michigan State or even Michigan. The Badgers’ schedule is set up for at least nine wins; maybe more if they can win at Nebraska and Minnesota.

Big Ten links: NU-Duke trash talk, vintage RU-PSU gallery & more

Trash talk? Between Northwestern and Duke? This is sweet. You know what they say: If you live long enough, you’ll see everything. Turns out Wildcats DE Ifeadi Odenigbo said he expects NU to shutout Duke. Blue Devils RB Shaun Wilson fired back on Twitter. So far this season, Northwestern has allowed just six points (two field goals), while Duke has averaged 46 in its first two contests. The Blue Devils have been held scoreless just once under head coach David Cutcliffe. I actually can’t wait for this game! *** I am a sucker for nostalgia. So, that’s why I pass
