Northwestern is dipping into its past this Saturday. The Wildcats will wear retro uniforms against Iowa, which are inspired by their 1995 team. The 1995 team was one of the most successful in program history, as Gary Barnett guided...

Numbers and statistics are a huge part of college football. Every Sunday, reading updated box scores and stats is like Christmas for fans and media members. Some stats like total offense and total defense are overrated, but each help paint a...

8-0 last weekend. Yup, I'm going to soak that one in. The worst part of going 8-0 is knowing that it will never happen again — sort of like being a Mets fan this October. But I digress. On to Week 6 where emotional letdowns...

The Indiana Hoosiers are coming off a wildly entertaining game against defending national champion Ohio State, and it should have caught the attention of Penn State. The Hoosiers pushed the Buckeyes nearly to the limit last week but now must...

What’s that old saying? If there’s smoke there’s fire? You’d swear something was ablaze over the past day or so in Lincoln. It turns out that rumors of former coaches dumping metaphorical toxic waste into the Nebraska...
