With Iowa suffering a stupefying defeat and big wins by Michigan State and Nebraska, my latest Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal, has a new look.
The latest college football polls were released Sunday, and the Coaches Poll features a season-high six Big Ten teams, including four in the top 10.
This was a Saturday dotted with big games and big opportunities. The results were very positive for the Big Ten on this big Saturday. At the top end of the scale were huge wins by Ohio State (at Oklahoma), Michigan State (at Notre Dame) and Nebraska (vs. Oregon).
Before we turn our attention to Week 4, it's time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 3 Big Ten game predictions. BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart went 9-2 to lead the way and move into a first-place tie.
Ohio State's Noah Brown hauled in what currently is, and could end up being, the catch of 2016. Watch the highlight-reel grab in this post.
The promise and hope that hangs over every season in college football’s holy land known as Lincoln, Nebraska, typically evaporates into a lost dream. Or, at least that’s been the case since the 1990s. But this season may be different.
There was cool sight on the field at Michigan Stadium prior to Saturday's game vs. Colorado. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, a former NFL quarterback, and ex-Michigan QB and current New England Patriots star Tom Brady played a little catch near midfield.
Tom Brady is Michigan’s honorary captain Saturday afternoon vs. Colorado. The former Michigan quarterback and future NFL Hall of Famer is no stranger to hanging out in his old college town; in fact, he delivered a memorable speech to Brady Hoke’s team during 2013 fall practice. Brady arrived in Ann Arbor early enough to share a wonderful moment with his son, among other things, as the pair played catch and ran routes on the iconic field. Watch Brady throw a touchdown to his son, who celebrates with, what other than, a dab in the quarterback’s Facebook post above.
In my weekly research of Big Ten football, I come across plenty of information. Here's my look at few gems ahead of Saturday's actiopn, which includes four games on BTN/BTN2Go. They are Colorado at Michigan, Duke at Northwestern, Georgia State at Wisconsin, and Temple at Penn State.
Minnesota’s chances to win the West? Can Penn State crack into the top three of the Big Ten East? Ohio State's Malik Hooker or Michigan's Jabrill Peppers - who would you take? Readers send in their questions and Tom Dienhart answer them in his weekly Big Ten mailbag.
