Taylor Martinez guided four straight scoring drives against a tiring Wisconsin defense in the second half to lead No. 22 Nebraska’s comeback from a 17-point deficit to defeat the Badgers 30-27 on Saturday night. Martinez scored on a 38-yard run, threw a 10-yard TD pass to Kyler Reed and set up Brett Maher for the tying and go-ahead field goals. Maher’s 41-yarder with 9:41 left gave the Huskers (3-1, 1-0) their first lead in the Big Ten opener. Danny O’Brien, who replaced Joel Stave, tried to bring back the Badgers (3-2, 0-1) with under 3 minutes to play. But Montee

Chris Borland

Did You See This? Borland's hurdling tackle

It came in a losing effort, but Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland ‘s tackle on Nebraska’s Rex Burkhead Saturday night may go down as the defensive play of the year. Hyperbole, you say? Yes, we’re only one week into the Big Ten season, but the violent hurdling tackle was that great. And the fact it came against one of the Big Ten’s elite running backs makes it all the better. Do yourself a favor and watch the tackle now. You won’t regret it. Catch up on all the stats and video highlights from Nebraska’s comeback win over Wisconsin on our Wisconsin

Ohio State Celebration

Dienhart: These 5-0 Buckeyes are very good

We interrupt your week filled with Big Ten bashing to tell you that Ohio State is good. It’s very good, in fact. Probably the best team in the Big Ten and reason to emote some conference pride. The Buckeyes looked the part of a very good team in methodically dispatching Michigan State, 17-16, today in East Lansing vs. a Spartan team that was desperate to show it was legit after looking inconsistent the first four games. “I know the Big Ten has taken some heat; I thought that was a great game, great atmosphere, bunch of great players on the

Rex Burkhead

1st Quarter Recap: Wisconsin 14, Nebraska 3

No. 23 Wisconsin stifled No. 20 Nebraska’s offense, giving up just 38 total yards in the first quarter and the Badgers lead 14-3 at the end of the first quarter. Wisconsin sniffed out the Cornhuskers’ rushing attack in the quarter, holding Nebraska to 21 rush yards. The Badgers scored when Montee Ball ran two yards to paydirt to clinch a five-play, 71-yard drive, giving Wisconsin the game’s first lead.

Purdue’s Caleb TerBush threw four touchdown passes, including three to Gary Bush, Saturday and the Boilermakers ran two interceptions back for scores as they held off Marshall 51-41. TerBush finished 27 of 37 for 294 yards on a day both offenses had big numbers. Marshall (2-3) lived up to its billing as the nation’s No. 1 passing offense. After forging a 14-14 tie early in the second quarter, Purdue’s defense flipped the game by turning three quick interceptions into touchdowns. Cornerbacks Ricardo Allen and Josh Johnson each scored on their interceptions (Watch them), marking the first time in Purdue history

Braxton Miller

Ohio State stays perfect, nips Michigan State

Braxton Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 130, and No. 14 Ohio State held off No. 20 Michigan State 17-16 on Saturday, giving Urban Meyer a win in his first Big Ten game as Buckeyes coach. Miller put Ohio State (5-0, 1-0) ahead 17-13 with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third quarter, and the Buckeyes’ maligned defense held Le’Veon Bell and the Michigan State running game in check.
