Video: It's a bird... It's a plane... It's a U-M jetpack!

Here’s something you don’t see every day: A Michigan football fan, decked out in a full dress suit, straps on a U-M jetpack and takes off into the air and right out of the Big House. What better way to entertain 100,00-plus people during a halftime show, right? No, there’s no word on where this spirited Wolverine fan finally landed. While you’re at it, check out this other daredevil we caught on film during the Wisconsin-Massachusetts game. And what about these Parachuting Elvis characters at Indiana? These Big Ten fans sure know how to have fun, huh? About Sean Merriman

Dienhart: Gary Andersen 'perfect fit' at Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. – Coaches usually want to get the first game behind them. Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen was no different. The Jitters, the unknown. Just get here and get over. Now. This not only was the first game of the 2013 season—it also was his first game as Badgers coach. “Please Saturday come here as fast as possible,” Andersen said leading into this game. “It’s just time. I am absolutely excited about the opportunity to take the field with this crew and watch them go to work and I know they’re excited about it. “It’s going to be fun. That’s one

Melvin Gordon

Video: Wisconsin erupts for big play after big play

Many people wondered what the Wisconsin offense would look like under Gary Andersen. In Saturday afternoon’s season opener vs. Massachusetts, the Badgers – as Andersen insisted ever since he took over for Bret Bielema – stayed true to Wisconsin’s roots. And that means running the ball, and doing so very well. The Badgers ran at will vs. overmatched UMass, which is in its second year at the FBS level; in fact, Melvin Gordon (144 yards), James White (143) and Corey Clement (101) all eclipsed 100 yards, marking just the third time that’s happened at Wisconsin. So, yeah, the Badgers ran

Mark Dantonio

Video: This is an interesting way to celebrate, isn't it?

Here’s something new: Michigan State busted out quick games of rock-paper-scissors following made extra points and field goals in Friday night’s season opener vs. Western Michigan. That’s right, once the ball went through the uprights, kicker Kevin Muma and long snapper Taybor Pepper found each other and drew their best hand. No, there’s no word on who won the battle.

You see the crazy weather at Spartan Stadium?

Extreme heat was expected for the opening weekend of the college football season. But frightening skies, torrential downpours and lightning – not so much. You name it, they’ve had it Friday at Spartan Stadium. So much so, play was halted with 11:19 remaining in the second quarter due to lightning, and the teams were sent to the locker rooms. The game is expected to resume at 10 p.m. ET. [ MORE: Watch Kurtis Drummond’s individual highlight reel ] VIDEO: It's raining JUST a bit at Spartan Stadium.

Kurtis Drummond

Video: Drummond hauls in crazy one-handed INT

Fact: Kurtis Drummond will never forget his start to Friday’s season opener vs. Western Michigan. First, Drummond had an early interception overturned. Moments later, he made it count – twice. First, he scored after Jairus Jones intercepted a pass and lateraled the ball his way. Next, he turned in the play of the night with this ridiculous one-handed pick.

Live Blog: Michigan State drops Western Michigan

Jeremy Langford’s 2-yard touchdown run late in the first half broke a tie and he finished with a career-high 94 yards rushing, helping Michigan State beat Western Michigan 26-13 Friday night. The Spartans (1-0) struggled on offense, rotating ineffective quarterback Andrew Maxwell and Connor Cook, and scored two touchdowns on defense. Jairus Jones had two interceptions, the first of which turned into a score with his lateral to Kurtis Drummond, whose 21-yard return was the game’s first score midway through the first quarter  [ PREVIEW | BOX | PBP | AP RECAP | SCORES | CONNECT | WEATHER | WATCH ON

Dienhart: Week 1 Questions? Yes. Answers? Not yet.

The Big Ten took the lid off the 2013 season last night, with Minnesota and Indiana recording resounding victories by registering point totals that would have tilted a pinball machine. The unveilings continue tonight, with Michigan State playing host to Western Michigan, and then the other nine schools play Saturday. Here are questions I have for each of the 10 schools yet to kickoff. [ MORE: Who wins Week 1 games? Pick your winners! ] ILLINOIS Will the Fighting Illini dominant a FCS foe?
