We take a look at stories on one offensive line and one defensive line in today’s installment of Big Ten Links. Also, Urban Meyer is keeping an eye on the AP poll while Illinois fans are taking a long, hard look at Tim Beckman. One longtime Big Ten writer breaks out some wild stats from the season so far while another continues to grade the units at Penn State. Let’s get to the roundup of stories in this post.
Drew Brees broke Johnny Unitas’ NFL record for most consecutive games with a TD pass in 48 straight games. Did anyone see any of this coming for the former standout Purdue quarterback? And how good can Brees be when his career eventually ends? Also, Russ Lande updates his Top 10 Big Ten NFL draft prospects, and there is movement among the names. Watch last week’s list in the video in this post to get ready for tonight. Our panel discuss that and more on tonight’s “The Next Level” at 5:30 p.m. ET on BTN & BTN2Go.
