Ready for another jam-packed Big Ten football Saturday? We sure are! In order to get you ready for the action, here is a rundown of all 10 games on the slate and a recap of this week’s action leading up to Saturday. As always, make sure to utilize BTN’s GameFinder, which will provide you with channel information for all six BTN games. All games will also be available on BTN2Go.
I had this ninth grade English teacher named Mr. Trent at West Lafayette High School. And every Friday, he’d give us a “Super Quiz.” Only he spelled Quiz “Kwiz.” Man, I hated that. And I hated his quizzes even more. They ruined the Friday of every 14-year-old. So, it is in the late Mr. Trent’s honor that I present you with this week’s B1G grid quiz. Good luck. You’ll need it—or maybe not.
Each week during the season, BTN.com web editor Sean Merriman and a featured guest will debate a topic related to Big Ten football. This week, Ohio State beat writer Kyle Rowland and I debate the following question: “Assuming Braxton Miller is cleared to play this week against Florida A&M, should he start, or should Ohio State stick with backup Kenny Guiton?”
It’s that time of the week again, time for Four Downs, an informative and fun look at the Saturday ahead.
If you’re on Twitter, you can vote in our ongoing series of Big Ten Twitter polls for our weekday TV show #BTNLive weekdays at 6 p.m. ET. On tonight’s #BTNLive show, our experts discuss this question: In the battle for the Megaphone Trophy, which unit will have the best game? Also on tonight’s show, Rick Pizzo, Brandon Williams and Jim Miller get a special appearance for Notre Dame fan and Fox Sports 1 host Regis Philbin. Wonder which unit Philbin would vote for?
Happy Friday, Big Ten Nation! Game day almost is here. Don’t you love those words? Sure you do! Let’s start here with daily links. The last two seasons, Michigan has had issues with turnovers in its first road game. How bad has it been? Michigan has 16 turnovers in five recent road losses. Will those issues persist with this year’s maiden voyage away Ann Arbor, at UConn this Saturday?
