Week 13 questions: One query for every Big Ten team

This is the last week of the regular season. Rivalry trophies are on the line. (Hello, Old Oaken Bucket, Land of Lincoln Trophy, Heroes Trophy!) Bowl eligibility is up for grabs.

Dienhart: Latest moves will shake things up

And then there were 14. We all knew this day was coming, right? We all knew the Big Ten would grow to 14 schools. The SEC made the move prior to this season, which certainly had to catch the eye of Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany. And when Notre Dame forged an alliance earlier this fall with the ACC to provide a home for all of its sports but football, the Big Ten reportedly began to move aggressively toward expansion. Mission accomplished. [RELATED: Clothes Call: Meet the Rutgers Scarlet Knights] Maryland officially was announced as the Big Ten’s 13th member yesterday.

Heisman watch: Could Miller benefit from losses?

With Kansas State and Oregon losing in a wild Saturday night, the Heisman race seemingly has opened up. Some straw polls have Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel on top in the Heisman hunt. Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o, Kansas State’s Collin Klein and USC’s Marqise Lee also remain viable. The Big Ten’s biggest beneficiary to the upsets last week is Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller. And he can enhance his resume with a big effort in a win vs. Michigan on Saturday. Beat the Wolverines, and look good doing it, and Miller may at least guarantee a spot in New York for

Penn State G Frazier tears Achilles, out for season

Penn State senior point guard Tim Frazier will undergo surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon Tuesday, putting him out for the remainder of the 2012-13 season.

Tuesday links: Tracking the expansion buzz

Expansion is the buzz around Big Ten media outlets, with the league officially announcing that Maryland will be joining the conference in 2014 and Rutgers to announce that it is following suit today at a 2 p.m. ET press conference. Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald says the moves by the Big Ten show that power and money once again have trumped traditions. He’s exactly right. I just wonder why this is a shock to anyone. See what Shatel has to say here and check out other league news in my daily links.
