With the top teams taking care of business, there isn’t much movement in my bowl projections. Ohio State still is headed to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl—not the BCS title game. I still think the deck is stacked against the Buckeyes, who appear stuck at No. 4 in the BCS standings, being able to ascend into the Nos. 1 or 2 spots in the final BCS standings.

Michigan State played above the rim for much of its 83-45 exhibition victory over Indiana (PA) on Monday at the Breslin Center. And that’s a good thing, because it’s exactly what one expects to see from the No. 2 team vs. a far inferior preseason foe. Check out all of Michigan State’s top dunks, including a trio from Adreian Payne, in this post.
It’s good to be Ron Kellogg III right now. The unlikeliest of heroes, Kellogg III, Nebraska’s third-string quarterback, heaved the unforgettable last-second Hail Mary that stunned Northwestern on Saturday. Kellogg III visited #BTNLive on Monday to discuss the play – did you know it was called Geronimo? – and its aftermath. Watch the interview in this post.
BTN aired a half-dozen Big Ten men’s basketball exhibition games Monday night. As expected, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska and Purdue all cruised to easy tune-up home wins. We published all the best highlights from the busy night on the hardwood in this post.
It’s not often that the No. 1 highlight on a top 10 plays list is as unanimous and obvious as it was in Week 10. No play, though, was even in the same ballpark as Nebraska’s memorable and unbelievable last-second Hail Mary to stun Northwestern. That play took the top spot in our latest countdown, but check out our other top Big Ten highlights in this post.
Happy Monday, Big Ten Nation! Time to start prepping for the big game this week: Nebraska at Michigan. Neither team can afford another loss in its pursuit of Michigan State in the Legends Division. What’s ironic is that a win by the Wolverines over the Huskers would be a big help to the Spartans. That would give Nebraska two league losses, the same as Michigan. MSU has none. So, will Mark Dantonio be cheering for the Wolverines on Saturday, when the Spartans are off?
