Snap Reactions: Ball stay hot, Buckeyes stay on AP radar

Every Saturday throughout the Big Ten football season, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart offers his Snap Reactions to all the action. See what Dienhart had to say about today’s early games: Ohio State’s comeback victory over Purdue  in overtime and Wisconsin’s easy rivalry win over Minnesota. Ohio State 29, Purdue 22 OT 1. We all figured Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller would get hurt at some point this season, right? Well, it has happened, as the sophomore sensation went down in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury and then was taken to a hospital. Kenny Guiton came on in

Wisconsin Paul Bunyan Axe

Ball, White carry Badgers past Gophers, 38-13

James White raced 15 times through Minnesota’s defense for 175 yards rushing and three touchdowns, carrying Wisconsin to a 38-13 victory over Minnesota on Saturday, the ninth straight time the Badgers have beaten the Gophers to keep Paul Bunyan’s Axe. Montee Ball let his partner steal the show for most of the afternoon but still muscled his way for 166 yards on 24 attempts and two fourth-quarter scores to put the game out of reach and push the Badgers (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) to their 21st win in a row at Camp Randall Stadium. That matches LSU for the longest

Numbers: Big stats for big Week 8 games

Week 8 in the Big Ten is chock full of intriguing games. Michigan-Michigan State has arguably been the most talked-about rivalry in the conference over the last five years – from Mike Hart’s “little brother” quip in 2007 all the way through the early-season derogatory comments about Denard Robinson on Twitter by some Michigan State players this season. I can’t wait to get it going Saturday at 3:30 ET on BTN/BTN2Go. But that’s far from the only compelling game this weekend. Nebraska-Northwestern is a huge one in Evanston with both teams needing a win in their quests to get to

Michigan's Denard Robinson

Best of Week 8: It's Denard v. Narduzzi Part III

This shapes up as an interesting week, with two key Legends Division clashes on a Big Ten menu that has six games. The headline clash is Nebraska at Northwestern. The Cornhuskers are coming off a bye week and still may be licking their wounds after allowing 63 points in a loss at Ohio State last time out. The Wildcats are coming off a gutty win at Minnesota that pushed them to bowl eligibility. The loser of this game will have two Big Ten losses and be behind the proverbial eight ball. The two front-runners in the Legends are in action
