Who's got next? Watch Dantonio's rapid-fire Q&A

During his press availability after Michigan State’s 23-7 win over Eastern Michigan, Spartans coach Mark Dantonio apparently wanted to keep the questions from reporters moving at fast pace. At one point it was almost like a no-huddle approach as Dantonio punctuated each of his short answers with the phrase, “Next question.” “I’m just loving all these questions,” Dantonio says at one point, “because they’re great ones.” Watch the entire exchange in the video in this post.

Dienhart: Snap reactions to afternoon games’s Tom Dienhart is offering his thoughts and analysis from every Big Ten game today. In this post, you can find his Snap Reactions from the Big Ten’s four afternoon games. Here are his Snap Reactions to the three early games. See what Dienhart has to say about Michigan State, Nebraska, Northwestern and Penn State’s victory here. Northwestern 38, South Dakota 7 1. The Wildcats maintained their hot start by smashing an overmatched South Dakota team from the FCS ranks. Offense, defense, special teams … it all worked for Northwestern. The Wildcats had 408 yard and allowed only 240. Take

Bell, Spartans run past upset-minded Eastern Michigan

Le’Veon Bell rushed for a career-high 253 yards and a touchdown to help stagnant Michigan State avoid a major upset with a 23-7 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday. Dan Conroy kicked three field goals for the No. 21 Spartans (3-1), who failed to score a TD for more than seven quarters until Andrew Maxwell hit tight end Dion Sims on a 10-yard pass with 7:19 left. Michigan State struggled mightily through most of its final tuneup for next week’s Big Ten opener against unbeaten Ohio State. But Maxwell finally found Sims three times for 73 yards in the fourth

3rd Quarter Recap: Michigan State 9, E. Michigan 7

Michigan State’s front seven stepped up in the quarter, allowing the Eagles to gain just 17 rushing yards. The Spartans closed the gap to 7-6 when Dan Conroy kicked a 44-yard field goal to cap off a 35-yard drive. Michigan State kept the ball on the ground during the drive, throwing only one pass. Conroy’s 35-yard field goal gave the Spartans the lead 9-7 after a seven-play, 38-yard drive. Eastern Michigan will start the

2nd Quarter Recap: E. Michigan 7, Michigan State 3

Eastern Michigan’s defense shut down Michigan State’s aerial attack in the second quarter, holding the Spartans to 31 passing yards and the Eagles now lead 7-3. Michigan State scored when Dan Conroy kicked a 35-yard field goal to polish off a 12-play, 74-yard drive, giving the Spartans the game’s first lead. Tyler Benz’s 23-yard touchdown pass to Donald Scott put Eastern Michigan on top 7-3, the clincher of a one-play, 23-yard drive. The Eagles started in good field position when Eastern Michigan recovered a fumble. Le’Veon Bell clinched a 100-yard rushing game with 42 in the quarter, part of his

1st Quarter Recap: Michigan State 0, E. Michigan 0

The two teams combined for more punts than points in a slow first quarter and the game is tied 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. With neither team able to move the ball, there were four punts in the quarter. No. 20 Michigan State has the ball at its own 21-yard line to begin the second quarter. [ PREVIEW | BY QUARTER | BOX | PBP | CONNECT | WEATHER | WATCH ON BTN2GO ] Now, let’s look at what Dienhart says about this game.

Revsine's Numbers: Three unbeaten teams remain

Last week, I opened the column by dwelling on the negative. Not happening this week. We’re starting with the positive – the Big Ten’s three unbeaten teams. Ohio State is the first, and perhaps least surprising, of those unbeatens – and Urban Meyer’s team has gotten there with, no surprise, a high-powered offense. 30: The Buckeyes have scored at least 30 points in each of their first three games. If they can do it for a fourth straight time Saturday against UAB, it would be just the second time OSU has pulled that off in the first four contests of

Dienhart: My Big Ten questions for Week 4

As I do every Wednesday, I have questions that I hope are answered Saturday. One week away from the start of Big Ten play, here are my most pressing queries for the 10 Big Ten teams in action this week. Read all of my Big Ten coverage here and don’t forget to send any of your questions my way for my weekly Big Ten Mailbag. Illinois Will Nathan Scheelhaase be back? It sounds like he may be over an ankle injury suffered in the opener. Scheelhaase has missed the last two games, which the Fighting Illini have split. But Illinois
