Q&A: Exploring Big Ten research on concussions

The subject of concussions and head injuries has become a white-hot topic at every level of football, and the Big Ten is doing its part to better understand the issues and make things more safe. On this Saturday’s “Big Ten Football Pregame Show,” at 11 a.m. ET, our TV crew explores this topic by observing the 15th anniversary of the Daydrion Taylor-Bob Stephenson collision in a 1997 game between Penn State and Michigan. The league has had a concussion management plan since 2010. The Purdue Neurotrauma Group is one of the Big Ten groups that pioneered the effort to study

Dienhart: Week 10 Big Ten questions

The Big Ten slate isn’t loaded with many great games this Saturday, but questions still loom for each team. Chief among them are if Indiana can keep its momentum rolling? Is Denard still Denard? Will the Nebraska defense continue its solid run? Check out those and the other nine pressing questions for Big Ten teams this week.

Next 'Elite' episode profiles 1994 Nebraska football

In 1994, Nebraska was years away from joining the Big Ten. On Tuesday, “Big Ten Elite” celebrates the history of the Big Ten’s newest member by profiling Tom Osborne’s first national championship football team. In this look back, we see how this ended years of near misses for the Big Red. Tommie Frazier was the spark plug that ran the Nebraska offense but an injury sidelined him during the season. Backup QB Brook Berringer filled in admirably and kept the Cornhuskers marching toward a perfect season. Riding the explosive combination of a dynamite run game and a speedy Blackshirts defense,

Soccer Report: Big Ten race goes down to wire

It’s all to play for in the Big Ten, as yet again the so-called ‘experts’ got it all wrong! Four teams now have regular season hopes, after Penn State, Northwestern and Indiana all failed to win. The highlight of last weekend’s games was the performance of Jay Chapman up front for Michigan State. Chapman registered his first collegiate goals with a classy hat trick in the Spartans’ impressive win over Indiana. The freshman’s first was a thing of beauty that riffled into the top corner from distance, his second displayed pace, composure and quality with a finish worthy of Premier

Daily Links: QB decision looms for Badgers

Wisconsin is off this week. And that’s undoubtedly a good thing when you consider it needs to replace quarterback Joel Stave, who is out for eight weeks with a broken left collar bone suffered in the loss to Michigan State on Saturday. Read about what the Badgers are thinking and other hot topics in my daily links. Bret Bielema needs to decide if he’ll go with Danny O’Brien, who started the first two games before giving way to Stave, or Curt Philips, who has had three surgeries on his right knee. The rub for staffers: The quarterbacks really aren’t similar.

Football Report: Big Ten's best defense?

Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and Wisconsin, among others, all possess defenses that are compiling stingy numbers. Which unit is the best in the Big Ten, though? Before you blurt out “Michigan State!” realize that Michigan lands in the top 15 among FBS teams in five categories, including No. 1 in passing yards (1,162). Or that Penn State is ranked in the top 20 in four categories and Wisconsin two. Watch Howard Griffith and Chris Martin debate it now and cast your vote inside.

Best of Week 10: It's your turn again, Robert

There is a dearth of marquee matchups, but it is Little Brown Jug week. That may not mean much to you, but it does to Minnesota and Michigan. It’s an iconic college football trophy that the schools first played for in 1903. But it has been a lopsided rivalry, with the Golden Gophers winning just twice (1986 and 2005) in the last 30 seasons. Nebraska is in the driver’s seat in the Legends Division, but it must be wary as it treks to East Lansing to play a Michigan State squad that is coming off an emotional 16-13 overtime win

Daydrion Taylor & Bob Stephenson

Fifteen years later: Taylor's hit on Stephenson

The date was Nov. 8, 1997, otherwise known as the day Daydrion Taylor and Bob Stephenson’s lives forever changed. In the first quarter of a Michigan-Penn State game at Beaver Stadium, Taylor, a Michigan safety, delivered a bone-crushing hit on Stephenson, a Penn State tight end, near the sideline. The collision was so fierce it ended both players’ careers. Fifteen years later, the two open up about the hit in a BTN feature that will air during Saturday’s pregame show. Until then, here’s a peek of what’s to come. So, just how hard was the hit? “Thirty-two years of watching

Bowl projections: Boilers out, Huskers looking rosy

The bowl picture got a bit jumbled after a topsy-turvy weekend. The big winner was Nebraska, which moved into the Rose Bowl slot with its triumph over Michigan. The Legends Division is the Cornhuskers if they win out, which could set up a likely clash with Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game. The Huskers beat the Badgers, 30-27, earlier this season. Michigan still is primed for a nice bowl and still could go to the Rose if it wins out and sees Nebraska lose.
