Week 4 Field Pass: Live pregame video from Nebraska

Big Ten Field Pass on BTN2Go is fast becoming a must-watch event each week, and we’re doing it again on Saturday.

Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina debate the topic in this post. An update: Burkhead is set to return on Saturday. Brent: I have to go with an emphatic no on this one.

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
