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

Week 5 Previews: What to look for in Big Ten play

Earlier this week I helped take a look at who might land in the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship game. Well, the road to that big game starts Saturday as Big Ten teams put a rocky non-conference run behind them and focus on pounding on each other. In this post, I take a close look at all six games, and then I’m headed to East Lansing to cover Ohio State and Michigan State on Saturday. Also, every Saturday editors provide Rapid Recaps with quarterly updates from every game topped off with my Saturday Snap Reactions. Get those quarterly updates

Did You See This? Memorial Stadium adds '#Huskers'

Add a Twitter hashtag to the growing list of new features we’ll see during Saturday’s highly anticipated Wisconsin-Nebraska Big Ten opener. That’s right, “#Huskers” has been added to the field at Memorial Stadium. And the hashtag should get plenty of play on the social media site, what with the two teams wearing much-talked-about adidas alternate uniforms and special cleats. [RELATED: Read all of our Clothes Call posts] This isn’t the first time a Big Ten team has placed a hashtag on the playing field. Michigan did it during its last spring game.

Revsine's Numbers: It's time for Big Ten play

Conference play is here – and not a moment too soon. I don’t say that for the reasons you might think (though I’m certainly not complaining about not having to discuss which game this weekend is most important for the Big Ten’s national reputation). For me the excitement is purely selfish. I get some time in my life back – the time I’ve spent over the last four weeks preparing for the Big Ten’s non-conference opponents. You never know when you might get another Appalachian State over Michigan – and my job, of course, is to be prepared to talk
