Revsine's Numbers: Nebraska offense dials it up

This week’s college football slate is nothing short of phenomenal: Georgia-South Carolina, LSU-Florida, and West Virginia-Texas are among about a half dozen intriguing games. The Big Ten has its share of good ones, including a match-up of ranked teams in Columbus, as Nebraska visits Ohio State. It seems as good a place as any to jump into this week’s “Numbers.” I never would have thought this at the outset of the year, given their struggles down the stretch last season and my concerns about Taylor Martinez in the passing game, but I’m more and more convinced that the Huskers have

Dienhart: Week 6 Big Ten questions

Another Saturday looms. And, I have questions. Here are my most pressing queries for Big Ten teams entering Week 6, the second 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 Can the Fighting Illini get on track? This is a team that needs something positive to happen—anything—that is positive. Illinois is coming off consecutive blowout losses at home, losing 52-24 to Louisiana Tech and 35-7 to Penn State. Now comes back-to-back road games at Wisconsin and Michigan. Bottom

Best of Week 6: Bo Pelini returns to Columbus

This week’s schedule is loaded with three good games, the headliner being Nebraska’s trip to Ohio State. Each could be the top team in their respective division. The subplots are thick, with great quarterback and head coaching battles leading the way. Oh, and Bo Pelini, a Youngstown, Ohio, native returns to Ohio State, where he was a defensive back from 1987-90. The Buckeyes also are looking for revenge. The Cornhuskers roared back from a 21-point second-half deficit to beat the Buckeyes, 34-27, last year in the first Big Ten game played at Memorial Stadium. [RELATED: Week 6 Power Rankings |
