Schedule analysis: Michigan eyes fast start this fall

Michigan’s 2013 football slate sets up for a fast start.

Schedule analysis: Iowa bowl bid? Tough road ahead

Iowa may be hard-pressed to get bowl eligible coming off a disappointing 4-8 season, the program’s worst since 2000. Keep an eye on the trip to Minnesota on Sept. 28 in the Big Ten opener.

Schedule analysis: Very big year for Illini

This is a big year for Illinois’ Tim Beckman, who shook up his staff after debuting with a 2-10 overall record and going 0-8 in the Big Ten. The schedule is built for a nice start, as six of the first seven contests are home games—including a tilt in Chicago. But it’s November that could make or break the Fighting Illini.
