Tonight on the Big Ten Football Report at 7 p.m. ET our crew of Mike Hall, Rosevelt Colvin and Tony Banks previews the first weekend of all divisional games with a host of interviews and analysis. We'll be talking to a handful of head coaches including Penn State's Joe Paterno, Michigan State's Mark Dantonio, Illinois' Ron Zook, and Iowa's Kirk Ferentz. Plus, BTN LiveBIG host and Michigan product Dhani Jones (@DhaniJones) joins us in studio to talk with Banks about the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry and what it means to them.

Later, Colvin spotlights Illinois' Whitney Mercilus and breaks down the nation?s sack leader while Banks studies the Ohio State offensive line improvements, thanks to the return of Mike Adams. We'll also look at what got the Penn State ground game going lately, the Wisconsin linebackers, and the youth movement going on at Indiana.
