No. 10 Illinois holds off Norfolk State, moves to 11-0

Brandon Paul scored 14 points and D.J. Richardson overcame a shoulder injury to add 11 and help 10th-ranked Illinois hold off Norfolk State 64-54 on Tuesday night. The Illini (11-0) were coming of a win at Gonzaga on Saturday that helped move them into the top 10, but were sluggish against the Spartans. Illinois was shooting 46 percent from the field coming in but shot just 35 percent on the night. Rashid Gaston scored 12 points and Pendarvis Williams added 11 for Norfolk State (6-6), which led for much of the first half. Richardson left late in the first half

No. 3 Michigan thrashes Binghamton, 67-39

Trey Burke scored 19 points and freshman Nik Stauskas added 12 to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 67-39 victory over Binghamton on Tuesday night. The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89. This win was every bit the mismatch it looked like before the opening tip. The Bearcats (2-9) were coming off a 22-point loss to Bryant. They led Michigan 10-8 before the Wolverines went on a 19-2 run. It was 34-14 at halftime. Jordan Reed scored 11 points and was Binghamton’s only player in double figures. [ BOX | AP

Video: Top 10 plays of the 2012 football season

As we await the start of bowl season, it’s a good time to look back at the Big Ten’s best plays of the 2012 season. From Devin Smith’s one-handed TD grab in Week 1 to Montee Ball’s highlight-reel touchdown run in the Big Ten title game, here are my top 10 plays of the 2012 season. There were a ton of worthy plays, so remember this is just one man’s opinion. Feel like I missed one? Write it in the comment section at the bottom of the post. 10.

Big Ten Classics: Watch 2000 Rose Bowl on BTN2Go

In our latest Big Ten football classic, we’ve dug up the 2000 Rose Bowl because the two teams involved will sound familiar – Wisconsin and Stanford. We’ve clipped off a piece of the game here for you to watch. Spoiler alert, Badger fans: It’s a touchdown drive. Watch the entire 2000 Rose Bowl game on BTN2Go. We’ve got a few other worthwhile video clips in this post. They include a look at Barry Alvarez on “Big Ten Icons” and a complete look at the Badgers’ magical 1993 season, too. Watch them all on BTN2Go. Wisconsin won the 2000 Rose Bowl game against Stanford

Michigan's Taylor Lewan

Tuesday's links: Here comes Lewan vs. Clowney

It’s getting cold outside across the Big Ten, but you’ll find plenty to warm you up in my daily links, beginning with one of the hottest individual matchups in the bowl season pitting Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. This is Coke vs. Pepsi, Balboa vs. Lang, Coyote vs. Roadrunner big. I can’t wait. Each is an All-American and a likely first-round draft choice when they come out. Clowney even has some hardware from 2012, winning the Hendricks Award as the nation’s top defensive end. Bottom line: This is great theatre, a clash of two titans.

Super Seven: Ranking Big Ten's best starts

It’s a new season. So, it’s time for a new feature. Welcome to the “Super Seven.” Each week, I will look at different aspect of Big Ten basketball—and rank it from 1-7. The seven best coaches, seven best arenas, seven best shooters, etc. To kick things off, I’m looking at the seven most impressive starts to the season. 1. Illinois. What a difference a new coach has made. John Groce arrived from Ohio and has the Fighting Illini off to a 10-0 start, which is among the most surprising beginnings of any team in the nation. Brandon Paul is playing

Zeller, Indiana top Big Ten Power Rankings

A month-plus into the men’s basketball season, it’s time to debut the Big Ten Power Rankings. With six teams landing in the top 19 of the latest major polls, it’s not an easy task to rank the top half of the conference. Indiana and Michigan are the top two teams so far, but what about after that? See my complete rankings in this post. 1. Indiana, 9-0 – The nation’s deepest team is about to welcome highly touted freshmen Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin – both opened season on suspension – to a rotation that already goes 10 deep.

What should happen to Big Ten divisions?

On tonight’s episode of “The Football Report,” our TV analysts tackled the expansion-related topic of the Big Ten Conference football divisions. Before you watch and see what our guys think, come tell us what you think in this post. Specifically, when the conference expands beyond 12 conference members, should the Big Ten form completely new divisions? If so, what should they be? Or should the Big Ten just add each school to an existing division? Driven by the recent news that Maryland and Rutgers are joining the Big Ten, the survey below asks this division realignment question among others. BTN

Johnathan Hankins

Dienhart: No surprise Hankins will enter NFL draft

It was no surprise to see Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins announce he’s bypassing his senior season to turn pro. He’s a likely first-round draft choice, and he spent most of the season atop BTN NFL draft expert Russ Lande’s Big Board. The Buckeyes will miss Hankins presence inside, as massive 300-pound run-stuffers like him are difficult to find. Exasperating issues along the defensive line is the fact star senior end John Simon also is gone. Other departing seniors from up front will be end Nathan Williams and tackle Garrett Goebel.

Purdue at Clemson

Dienhart: Purdue could use win over No. 24 Notre Dame

The hoop season continues to gain speed and momentum, as a bit more clarity is apparent with each passing week. Still, there are many unknowns. And that will remain so, as this is a slow week of action with many schools in finals week. Here’s a look at the week ahead, with the best games coming on Saturday.
