Snap Reactions: Penn State's Matt McGloin for OPOY?

Every Saturday during the football season, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart offers his Snap Reactions to every Big Ten game. See his thoughts from the Big Ten’s three early Week 5 games in this post. Among his thoughts: Is it time to put Matt McGloin in the conversation for Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year? Penn State 35, Illinois 7 1. Is any team in the Leaders Division playing better than Penn State? Hmm. The Nittany Lions have won three in a row after a 0-2 start. With better kicking, Penn State may be 5-0. As it stands, the

Weisman, Iowa run over perfect Minnesota, 31-13

Mark Weisman ran for 177 yards, 155 in the first half, to lead Iowa to a 31-13 win over Minnesota on Saturday and give the Hawkeyes possession of the Floyd of Rosedale bronze pig trophy. Christian Kirksey‘s 68-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter sealed the win for Iowa (3-2), which bounced back from last week’s disappointing 32-31 loss to Central Michigan to win the Big Ten opener for both schools. Minnesota (4-1) was off to its best start since 2004, but couldn’t get anything going on offense Saturday. Max Shortell threw three interceptions and the Gophers

3rd Quarter Recap: Iowa 24, Minnesota 7

In the third quarter, Isaac Fruechte fought back for Minnesota. He caught two passes for 26 yards and one touchdown, as the Golden Gophers now trail, 24-7. Minnesota finally got on the scoreboard when Max Shortell and Fruechte hooked up for a nine-yard touchdown to polish off a 79-yard drive. Iowa will start the fourth quarter with possession on the Golden Gophers’ 48-yard line.

2nd Quarter Recap: Iowa 24, Minnesota 0

Iowa’s offense scored 21 points thanks to four long plays and the Hawkeyes now lead 24-0. Iowa made its lead 10-0 when Mark Weisman turned a handoff into an eight-yard touchdown on the last play of a six-play, 84-yard drive. The key play on the Hawkeyes’ drive was Weisman’s 44-yard run. Iowa threw just one time on that drive. The Hawkeyes added to their advantage when James Vandenberg found Jordan Cotton open for a 47-yard touchdown pass, the final play on a one-play, 47-yard drive to give Iowa the lead, 17-0. A fumble recovery by the Hawkeyes set Iowa up

1st Quarter Recap: Iowa 3, Minnesota 0

The two teams combined for more punts than points in a slow first quarter and Iowa leads 3-0 at the end of the first quarter. There were four punts in the quarter as neither team could find a way to move the ball. The Hawkeyes struck first when Mike Meyer drilled a 43-yard field goal, the final play of a six-play, 49-yard drive. Iowa’s drive was keyed by James Vandenberg’s 45-yard pass. The Hawkeyes’ Mark Weisman has already gone over 100 yards rushing in just one quarter, with 103 so far. Iowa will start the second quarter with good field

Week 5 Previews: What to look for in Big Ten play

Earlier this week I helped take a look at who might land in the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship game. Well, the road to that big game starts Saturday as Big Ten teams put a rocky non-conference run behind them and focus on pounding on each other. In this post, I take a close look at all six games, and then I’m headed to East Lansing to cover Ohio State and Michigan State on Saturday. Also, every Saturday BTN.com editors provide Rapid Recaps with quarterly updates from every game topped off with my Saturday Snap Reactions. Get those quarterly updates

Revsine's Numbers: It's time for Big Ten play

Conference play is here – and not a moment too soon. I don’t say that for the reasons you might think (though I’m certainly not complaining about not having to discuss which game this weekend is most important for the Big Ten’s national reputation). For me the excitement is purely selfish. I get some time in my life back – the time I’ve spent over the last four weeks preparing for the Big Ten’s non-conference opponents. You never know when you might get another Appalachian State over Michigan – and my job, of course, is to be prepared to talk

Dienhart: Week 5 Big Ten questions

Another Saturday looms. And, I have questions. Here are my most pressing queries for the 11 teams in action entering Week 5, the first week of conference play. 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 Who will be the quarterback?
