It’s Tuesday. Not sure about the significance of Tuesday. There never really has been significance to Tuesday. So, let’s just jump right into daily links. The lack of quarterbacking heft in the Big Ten has been fairly well documented the last few years. But, in case you have forgotten, here is this little reminder: Davey O’Brien award announced its 16 semifinalists. And only one Big Ten quarterback made the cut: Ohio State’s Braxton Miller.
With the top teams taking care of business, there isn’t much movement in my bowl projections. Ohio State still is headed to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl—not the BCS title game. I still think the deck is stacked against the Buckeyes, who appear stuck at No. 4 in the BCS standings, being able to ascend into the Nos. 1 or 2 spots in the final BCS standings.

Kellogg III visited #BTNLive on Monday to discuss the play – did you know it was called Geronimo? – and its aftermath. Watch the interview in this post.

It’s not often that the No. 1 highlight on a top 10 plays list is as unanimous and obvious as it was in Week 10. No play, though, was even in the same ballpark as Nebraska’s memorable and unbelievable last-second Hail Mary to stun Northwestern. That play took the top spot in our latest countdown, but check out our other top Big Ten highlights in this post.

Happy Monday, Big Ten Nation! Time to start prepping for the big game this week: Nebraska at Michigan. Neither team can afford another loss in its pursuit of Michigan State in the Legends Division. What’s ironic is that a win by the Wolverines over the Huskers would be a big help to the Spartans. That would give Nebraska two league losses, the same as Michigan. MSU has none. So, will Mark Dantonio be cheering for the Wolverines on Saturday, when the Spartans are off?
