Bowl projections: Irish vs. Huskers in Rose Bowl

This much we know: Wisconsin will play either Nebraska or Michigan in the Big Ten title game. All three are coming off wins and figure to land nice bowl slots, regardless of what the matchup ends up being in Indianapolis. A big winner on Saturday was Minnesota, which became bowl eligible for the first time since 2009 with a win at Illinois. The other big winner over the weekend was Purdue. The Boilermakers’ 27-24 win at Iowa was victory No. 4 and it broke a five-game losing skid. It also fuels the chances for Purdue to get to a bowl

Hardaway Jr. moves into hoops player rankings

It’s early, what with 11 of the Big Ten’s 12 teams only playing one game at the time this post was published. But it’s Monday, the day I release my weekly hoops player rankings. The season’s first installment features one new name from my preseason list. That name is Tim Hardaway Jr., the conference’s Big Ten Player of the Week. See who fills out the entire top 10 in this post. 1. Cody Zeller, Indiana – Check out this season-opening line for the preseason All-America: 8-10, 18 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. The only negative was his

Cody Zeller

Zeller, No. 1 Indiana blow away North Dakota State

Cody Zeller scored 22 points and Remy Abell added a career-high 14 to lead No. 1 Indiana past pesky North Dakota State 87-61 on Monday night. This was no typical game for the Hoosiers (2-0), whose offense struggled to get in sync against the foul-prone Bison (1-1). It all seemed to be part of North Dakota State’s plan. Rather than allowing Indiana to run its up-tempo, inside-out offense, the Bison slowed things down by challenging shots and repeatedly sending Indiana to the free-throw line. And with Indiana’s outside shooters struggling in the first half, the game plan worked. Everything changed

Trey Burke

No. 5 Michigan cruises past IUPUI, 91-54

Trey Burke scored 22 points and Glenn Robinson III added 21, leading No. 5 Michigan to a 91-54 victory over IUPUI on Monday night in the NIT Season Tip-Off. Burke equaled a career high with nine assists and Robinson made his first eight shots from the field. Michigan (2-0) has been a model of efficiency on offense so far this season. After beating Slippery Rock 100-62 in their opener, the Wolverines shot 60 percent from the field and went 13 of 21 from 3-point range against IUPUI. Michigan advances to play Cleveland State in the next round Tuesday night. Purdue

Iowa's Fran McCaffery

Iowa holds off Central Michigan, 73-61

Devyn Marble scored 18 points and Mike Gesell added 15 as Iowa beat Central Michigan 73-61 on Monday night. Aaron White had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Hawkeyes (2-0), who couldn’t pull away against the inexperienced Chippewas until a 14-3 run midway through the second half. Gesell powered the key stretch for the Hawkeyes, hitting two 3-pointers and assisting on another. Kyle Randall scored 17 points for Central Michigan (0-1). The Chippewas cut the lead to seven points with 4 1/2 minutes left, but got no closer. First-year Central Michigan coach Keno Davis, the son of former Hawkeye

Minnesota starts fast, blows out Toledo

Rodney Williams had 12 points, eight rebounds and four steals, Austin Hollins scored 10 of his 13 points in the game’s first five minutes and Minnesota blew by Toledo 82-56 on Monday night. Joe Coleman finished with 15 points and six rebounds despite eight turnovers, and Oto Osenieks pitched in eight points off the bench for the Gophers (2-0), who played so sharply and confidently in the first half their occasional sloppiness down the stretch didn’t matter. Rian Pearson led the Rockets (0-2) with 18 points, and freshman center Nathan Boothe added 13 points and seven rebounds. [ AP RECAP

Tracy Abrams

Illinois takes down St. Francis (NY), 89-64

Tyler Griffey scored 17 points and Tracy Abrams had 15, leading Illinois to an 89-64 win over St. Francis (N.Y.) Monday night. Brandon Paul added 14 points and six assists for the Illini (2-0). Akeem Johnson led St. Francis (1-1) with 13 points, Ben Mockford added 12 and Jalen Cannon had 11 rebounds. Illinois couldn’t shake the Terriers early, but closed the first half on a 15-0 run to take a 45-25 lead. The Illini held St. Francis scoreless for 7:11 during the spurt. Illinois had only eight turnovers, something that concerned first-year coach John Groce during exhibition play. [

Ohio State's Devin Smith

Best of Week 12: All eyes will be on Madison

All eyes will be on Madison, Wis., where No. 6 Ohio State plays Wisconsin in a Week 12 that lacks compelling storylines. The Buckeyes are 10-0 and in search of perfection. The last time Ohio State came to Wisconsin, it got drummed, 31-18, in 2010. The Badgers already have the Leaders Division spot in the Big Ten title game sewn up, but a victory over the Buckeyes would be Wisconsin’s most impressive win of the season and give it momentum. Purdue (at Illinois), Iowa (at Michigan) and Indiana (at Penn State) have their figurative backs against the bowl wall as

Did You See This? Hardaway Jr. & Horford dunks

There were plenty of highlights during No. 5 Michigan’s 91-54 victory over IUPUI on Monday night at Crisler Center. One would be hard pressed to find two better ones than Tim Hardaway Jr.’s coast-to-coast slam dunk or Jon Horford’s powerful two-handed flush. Watch Hardaway’s dunk now and see Horford’s in this post. Here’s Horford’s powerful jam:

Bret Bielema

How will Wisconsin approach last two weeks?

Two weeks to go, and Wisconsin already has wrapped up its second consecutive trip to the Big Ten title game. That being the case, how will Bret Bielema and Wisconsin approach the final two games, vs. Ohio State and at Penn State? We asked BTN analysts Howard Griffith and Chris Martin on Monday night’s “Football Report.” Watch their answers now. Here’s what Martin said: “They’re going to work on the pass game. Just look at the facts, Curt Phillips only threw seven passes.” That’s true, the Badgers didn’t have to spend much time worrying about the pass in Saturday’s 62-14
