No. 8 Ohio State topples Nebraska, 70-44

Deshaun Thomas outscored Nebraska in the first half 18-17 and finished with 22 points to lead No. 8 Ohio State past the Cornhuskers 70-44 on Wednesday night in the Big Ten opener for both teams. Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 17 points for Ohio State (11-2, 1-0), which won its 15th consecutive Big Ten home opener. The Buckeyes have a tough test on Saturday at No. 11 Illinois. The Buckeyes led by at least 20 points for almost all of the second half. How bad was it for the Cornhuskers (9-5, 0-1)? Only 8:27 remained when they finally exceeded the 31

Super Seven: My top Big Ten freshman stars

The Big Ten has a nice collection of freshmen who already are making a big impact. Michigan has the best group, with the likes of Mitch McGary, Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas already shining. In this week’s Super Seven, I take a look at the Big Ten’s best freshman to date. Vote for your No. 1 freshman at the bottom of this post. 1. Nik Stauskas, Michigan. The Wolverines may have the best collection of freshmen in the Big Ten. Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary got the headlines entering the season, but Stauskas is emerging as perhaps the

Today's links: Breaking down Big Ten bowl results

As we stand in the aftermath of another disappointing Big Ten bowl season (2-5 record with a 1-4 mark on New Year’s Day), we are left to wonder how the conference would have fared if Ohio State and Penn State had been eligible. OK, that’s long enough. Time to leave Fantasy Land and surf my daily links here. Regardless of what might have been, the Big Ten held its own against some good teams, including Georgia, Stanford and South Carolina. And it came very close to beating them. The great Greg Couch of the Lansing State Journal thinks the Big

Dienhart: 'End of one era, beginning of another'

When it comes to motivation, few push buttons better than Barry Alvarez. Heading into the Rose Bowl vs. Stanford, Alvarez had bracelets made for players that read “I’m In” and “I’m On.” But the players had to earn the rubber jewelry through their position coach. The idea: Get players to focus on the Rose Bowl, the task at hand—and to zone out the background noise surrounding the program. And there was a lot of background noise, set off by Bret Bielema’s stunning departure for Arkansas just days after leading the Badgers to a third Rose Bowl bid with a dominating 70-31

How did we do? Big Ten bowl predictions revisited

Every week this season, Tom Dienhart (@BTNTomDienhart) and myself (@BTNBrentYarina) offered our predictions for each Big Ten football game and provided polls for fans to pick their winners. We continued it this bowl season, and fans and Dienhart each went 7-0, meaning the former claims the 2012 crown. Dienhart was two games off the pace, while yours truly finished a distant seven games out.

Badgers drop third straight close Rose Bowl

Stepfan Taylor rushed for 89 yards and an early touchdown, Kevin Hogan passed for 123 yards, and No. 8 Stanford’s dominant defense shut out Wisconsin in the second half of a 20-14 victory in the 99th Rose Bowl on Tuesday night. Usua Amanam made the decisive interception near midfield with 2:30 to play as the Pac-12 champion Cardinal (12-2) won their first Rose Bowl since 1972.

In the year 1949, the last time NU won a bowl game...

Prior to Tuesday afternoon’s Gator Bowl win over Mississippi State, Northwestern hadn’t won a bowl game since beating Cal in the 1949 Rose Bowl. Sixty-four years and nine bowl defeats later, the run of futility is no more. Jump inside for a look at what was going on in the world in 1949, the last time Northwestern had won a bowl game.
