Dienhart: What a depressing non-con season

Another big game, another loss by the Big Ten. And so it has gone the first four weeks of what has been a black-and-blue season for the Big Ten. This Saturday saw Michigan lose at Notre Dame; Iowa fall at home to Central Michigan; Illinois get hammered at home by Louisiana Tech. All of the dubious losses acted as a de facto black bow on a depressing non-conference season for the Big Ten. While losses by Iowa and Illinois today were downers on this day, Michigan was the school that was carrying the Big Ten’s banner. The game at Notre

No. 15 Notre Dame downs Michigan to stay perfect

Manti Te’o had two interceptions as No. 11 Notre Dame picked off five Michigan passes and backup quarterback Tommy Rees sparked the Fighting Irish offense in a 13-6 win over the 18th-ranked Wolverines Saturday night. Denard Robinson, who amassed 948 yards of total offense in victories over the Irish past two years, wasn’t as effective this time as he threw four interceptions in the first half, then lost a fumble at the Notre Dame 8-yard line on the first drive of the second half. The victory by Notre Dame (4-0) ended a streak of three straight games in which Michigan

2nd Quarter Recap: Notre Dame 10, Michigan 0

Tommy Rees had a productive quarter for Notre Dame. He threw for 45 yards and ran for two yards and one touchdown, and the Fighting Irish now lead 10-0. Notre Dame took the game’s first lead after Kyle Brindza drilled a 33-yard field goal on the last play of a four-play, one-yard drive. The Fighting Irish started in good field position at the Michigan 17-yard line when Manti Te’o intercepted Denard Robinson’s pass. Notre Dame added to its advantage when Rees kept it himself for a two-yard touchdown run, the final play on an eight-play, 48-yard drive to give the

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
