Illinois' Jonathan Brown

Mic'd Mondays: Brown, Bennett

Monday night on BTN, we interviewed the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week, Illinois’ Jonathan Brown, and the Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week, Minnesota’s Duane Bennett. Brown met with “The Big Ten Pulse” to discuss the Illini’s big night against Arizona State and quarterback Brock Osweiler. The Illini sacked Osweiler six times, five more times than he went down in the first two games combined. How did Illinois do it? “It’s kind of hard to miss him when the guy’s 6-8, with those long legs. He can’t really go anywhere,” Brown said. Watch our interview with

Pulse: What to Make of the Blackshirts?

Entering the 2011 college football season, Nebraska was the popular pick when it came to the Big Ten’s best defensive unit. With returning stars such as Jared Crick, Lavonte David and Alfonzo Dennard, among others, the Huskers boasted the talent, not to mention the coaching. Three games in, though, the Huskers have allowed 24.7 points per game (67th in FBS) and 1,094 total yards (77th). Yes, they have missed Dennard, who has been out with a leg injury, but where does Nebraska stand as a defense and as a team? That’s what “The Big Ten Pulse” crew discusses in this

Minnesota's Jerry Kill

"Jerry! Jerry!" Chants Fill Gophers' Locker Room

Two Saturdays ago, Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill was taken off the field on a stretcher to “Jerry! Jerry!” chants. Kill returned to the field in Week 3, one week after suffering a seizure on the sideline, and recorded his first victory as Minnesota coach. When Kill entered the locker room following the team’s 29-23 victory, he once again heard the “Jerry! Jerry!” chants. This time, it was from his proud players. Watch the video of the scene from GopherSports‘ YouTube page inside. The Gophers (1-2) close out their nonconference schedule at 7 p.m. ET Saturday against North Dakota

Pulse Preview: Another Crazy Comeback

The Big Ten has treated college football fans to a dynamic fourth-quarter comeback each of the past two weeks. Two weeks ago, it was Denard Robinson and Michigan coming back against Notre Dame. This past week, it was James Vandenberg and Iowa rallying past Pittsburgh for the greatest comeback in school history. At 7:30 ET Monday on the “Big Ten Pulse,” Rick Pizzo, Tim Doyle and Derek Rackley will discuss the latest comeback, talk about the rough Week 3 for a trio of Big Ten teams and interview Illinois’ Jonathan Brown. Watch now as Doyle previews Monday’s show. The Pulse

Iowa's James Vandenberg

Big Ten Names Players of the Week

On Monday morning, the Big Ten Conference announced its players of the week for Week 3. The honorees include four first-time winners, highlighted by Iowa’s James Vandenberg, the Offensive Player of the Week. Vandenberg threw for 162 of his 399 passing yards and for all three of his touchdown passes in a remarkable fourth quarter to help Iowa tally its largest comeback in school history. The junior quarterback also added a rushing score, for good measure, as the Hawkeyes rallied from a 21-point deficit against Pittsburgh. Defensive honors went to Illinois’ Jonathan Brown, who lived in the Arizona State backfield

Nebraska Wins First Big Ten Event

Some day it will be the answer to a trivia question. The Nebraska soccer team carded the school’s first Big Ten victory in its opening Big Ten Conference event Sunday afternoon. The Huskers, led by Morgan Marlborough’s hat trick, took down Northwestern, 3-1, at Nebraska Soccer Field (read the Huskers.com recap). It was a dramatic way for Nebraska to open its Big Ten career, but it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, as the Huskers are 16-1-0 in conference openers, all in the Big 12.

(AP) Lamar Miller ran for 188 yards, Jacory Harris threw two first-quarter touchdown passes to Allen Hurns and Miami avoided matching its longest losing streak in 33 years by topping No. 17 Ohio State 24-6 on Saturday night.
