Roy Roundtree

Did You See This? Roundtree's catch, in video & photos

No matter what happens from here on out, Michigan wide receiver Roy Roundtree will be remembered for his catch in Saturday’s game vs. Northwestern. The 53-yard tip reception was jaw-dropping regardless of the game situation, but it was all the more ridiculous because it set up Michigan’s game-tying field goal with two seconds left at Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines, of course, went on to win the game in overtime. Saturday was Roundtree’s day. The senior wide receiver hauled in five passes for 139 yards, none nearly as important or impressive as the season-saving one. The catch was so good, it

Week 11 Previews: Here comes PSU vs. Nebraska

It’s time to get ready for Week 11 of the Big Ten season. And it shapes up to be interesting on many fronts. Can Nebraska make it four wins in a row and knock off Penn State?

Revsine: Our expert crunches Week 11 numbers

It’s November, and, just as we all predicted at the outset of the season, the most intriguing game in the conference in Week 11 pits Indiana against Wisconsin. Ok, no one actually predicted that. In fact, even though it’s now a reality, not everyone is actually admitting it. Said Indiana coach Kevin Wilson, “This isn’t a big game. If it was, we wouldn’t be 4-5 and we wouldn’t be playing at 12 o’clock.” Wait, don’t Michigan and Ohio State play at 12 o’clock? Whether Wilson wants to acknowledge it or not, it’s a big game. A Hoosiers win would genuinely
