Sunday's Big Ten Olympic Sports Roundup

The Iowa women’s soccer team knocked off Valparaiso, 3-1, Sunday afternoon to remain the Big Ten’s lone undefeated team and run its nonconference winning streak to 15 matches, dating back to last season. Best of all, Iowa (6-0-0) suffered no setback playing just two days after taking down heated rival Iowa State on the road. Melanie Pickert, Cloe Lacasse and Dana Dalrymple scored Iowa’s goals. Watch our interview with Iowa coach Ron Rainey now and see all of our Sunday Olympic sports video in this post. [HawkeyeSports.com: Iowa’s undefeated streak lives on]

Dienhart: 'All good things take time'

A.J. McCarron passes two yards to Michael Williams for a touchdown. A.J. McCarron passes 51 yards to DeAndrew White for a touchdown. Eddie Lacy rushes nine yards for a touchdown. And just like that, Alabama was ahead, 21-0, over Michigan. And there still were two minutes left … in the first quarter. It was one of those nights for Michigan in its big showdown with Alabama in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, as this game was over before the massive 2,100-inch video board had even warmed up. The college football world had waited months—at times this summer, it felt like

Dienhart: My thoughts on Indiana's opening win

Throughout Saturday’s Week 1 action, I offered my snap reactions to all the Big Ten games. Here are my thoughts from the Big Ten’s early games and the afternoon games. Under the lights, Indiana held off instate foe Indiana State to match its 2011 win total, while Michigan was no match for reigning national champ Alabama. See my snap reactions to Indiana’s victory in this post. Indiana 24, Indiana State 17 1. QB Tre Roberson looked good in his debut running the new pass-oriented attack. He hit 26-of-36 passes for 281 yards with a touchdown. That’s a 72.2 percent completion

3rd Quarter Recap: Alabama 34, Michigan 14

Devin Gardner had a productive quarter for Michigan. He caught a 44-yard touchdown pass, but the Wolverines have closed the gap to 34-14. Alabama expanded its lead to 34-7 thanks to a five-play, 21-yard drive that ended when Cade Foster kicked a 50-yard field goal. Michigan polished off an 86-yard drive when Denard Robinson and Gardner combined for a 44-yard touchdown to make the score 34-14. Vincent Smith’s 22-yard run from the 30-yard line pushed the Wolverines into enemy territory. T.J. Yeldon clinched a 100-yard rushing game with 43 in the quarter, part of his 110-yard day through three quarters

3rd Quarter Recap: Indiana 24, Indiana State 17

Tre Roberson had a productive quarter for Indiana. He threw for 82 yards and ran for nine yards and one touchdown, and the margin is still seven, as the Hoosiers lead 24-17. Indiana opened up the lead, 24-10, after Roberson turned a quarterback sneak into a one-yard touchdown run to end an 11-play, 75-yard drive. Roberson topped 200 yards passing for the game in the quarter, and has plenty of time to add to his 245 total yards through the air. Indiana State closed the gap to 24-17 when Mike Perish found Austen Wozniak open for a 23-yard touchdown pass
