No. 1 Indiana wins in East Lansing for first time since 1991

Victor Oladipo‘s go-ahead putback, dunk and free throws in the final minute lifted top-ranked Indiana to a 72-68 win over No. 4 Michigan State on Tuesday night. Indiana (24-3, 12-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference. The Hoosiers had lost 17 straight – since 1991 – on the road against the Spartans. [ RELATED: Did You See This?

Thursday's Iowa-Nebraska game moved to Saturday

Nebraska and Iowa athletic departments, in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference, announced Tuesday afternoon that the Iowa-Nebraska game, originally scheduled for Thursday night, has been moved to 2 p.m. ET Saturday at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The move was prompted by the winter storm expected to hit the upper Midwest on Wednesday and Thursday, and was announced in advance for the safety of student-athletes, fans and game-day personnel. Saturday’s date was available for both teams, as Thursday’s scheduled matchup was the only game of the week for both Iowa and Nebraska. The game was originally scheduled to be

Mock brackets: Where do Big Ten teams land?

It’s time to check the mock brackets to see how the Big Ten rates for March Madness. The league holds steady with seven bids; the Big East also has seven in each bracket and as many as eight in some. The big change from last week is the ascension of Michigan State to a No. 1 seed in some brackets following its big win last week over Michigan, which was a No. 1 seed. The Spartans have won 11 of their last 12 games. The lone loss in that stretch was 75-70 at Indiana. ESPN.com is the lone bracket with

Vote Denard Robinson for NCAA Football cover

It’s fitting that a player who ripped off as many video game-like highlights as Denard Robinson is in the running to be on the cover of NCAA Football 2014. EA Sports announced Monday the four finalists for its next cover, and Robinson is joined by Alabama’s Eddie Lacy, Oregon’s Kenjon Barner and Texas A&M’s Ryan Swope. And guess what? EA Sports is letting fans decide this race. It posted a poll on its Facebook page, and you can cast your vote here. As of 2:40 p.m. ET Tuesday, Robinson is dominating the poll, with 16,192 votes, nearly 9,000 more than

Let's rank the games for this week

This is a relatively light week in the Big Ten with just eight games. But there is plenty of heft on top with tonight’s No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 5 Michigan State game, which will be the first battle of top-five teams in East Lansing. In fact, it’s a big week for the Spartans, who visit No. 18 Ohio State after playing host to the Hoosiers. Here is how I rank this week’s games. 1. Indiana at Michigan State, Tuesday. For the second week in a row, East Lansing is the place to be in the Big Ten. No. 1

Video: Watch Gary Andersen's 'Football Report' interview

New Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen doesn’t need to be reminded about the level of football talent in his new home state. It’s hard to miss, to be honest. “There’s a lot of big kids in Wisconsin!” Andersen said in Monday night’s “Big Ten Football Report” interview. Andersen, of course, was referencing the state’s perennial talent found in the trenches. What else has Andersen learned about his new school? Watch the full interview here. And here are some of the latest Wisconsin AP headlines: Andersen’s inaugural class includes in-state stars Regents approve contracts for Wisconsin coaches UW Regents approve contracts for

Today's links: Experts abuzz over big game

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a big game tonight in East Lansing, as No. 1 Indiana visits No. 5 Michigan State. So, let’s start our daily links right there. The good news for the Hoosiers is that play star guard Victor Oladipo will play after hurting an ankle in the last game. Good thing, because IU will need him. Some bad news: History is against Indiana, which has lost 17 in a row at the Breslin Center dating to Feb. 28, 1991. Where were you? In that win, the Hoosiers were led by Calbert Cheaney and Damon Bailey. Remember

Smith touched on several topics, including the annual date of the Michigan-Ohio State game, plus the possibility of Michigan and Ohio State landing in the same division and of November night games.

Big Ten primer: Is it Tuesday night yet?

All eyes will be on Michigan State (22-4 overall; 11-2 Big Ten) this week. If the Spartans can beat Indiana (23-3; 11-2) and Ohio State (18-7; 8-5), they will be in control of the Big Ten race as we head toward the home stretch. This also is a Titanic week for the Buckeyes, who are in peril of falling from the race after losing three of four. Ohio State has two big home games: Minnesota (18-8; 6-7) and Michigan State. Iowa also must take care of business at Nebraska to keep its faint NCAA tourney hopes alive. The Hawkeyes (17-9;
