Big Ten Articles

Now that Nebraska’s in the Big Ten, rivalries are budding, but nothing like the respectful Oklahoma games or the building hatred of the Texas Longhorns have emerged. Many accuse Husker fans of living in the past, but if there’s one...

Ladies and gentlemen of Husker Nation, the state of Nebraska football is still an unknown. The last-second loss to BYU and manhandling of South Alabama told us some things both good and bad, but we’ll learn very quickly just how good this...

Quarterbacks are always under heavy scrutiny for all 128 college football teams, and the pressure only increases in big-time matchups. While it’s still very early in the 2015 season, there are a handful of teams with critical matchups in Week...

How does that old saying go?  "If you feel like you're going through hell, keep going."  That sure is what it feels like both inside and outside of the Rutgers football program anymore. After a dominating season-...

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...

Tommy Armstrong
After a game that could’ve done a tremendous amount of damage to Nebraska’s psyche in their loss to BYU, there were plenty of questions this week. Would Tommy Armstrong continue to look the part? Would the running game finally show up?...

Considering the amount of transfers from the previously-defunct-but-now-starting-up-again UAB football program, Nebraska’s essentially taking on the South Alabama-Birmingham Blazing Jaguars. That’s actually a pretty killer name....

Braxton Miller
Numerous sportswriters have analyzed and praised former Ohio State starting quarterback Braxton Miller’s move to H-Back and I can’t blame them. We have never seen a three-year starting signal-caller and Heisman Trophy candidate move to...

If not for a 100-yard kickoff return from Western Michigan and two garbage time touchdowns from Louisville, I would have gone a nice 4-0 last week. But almost doesn't count with your bookie. This week, the advice is to stay away from the...

Oregon and Michigan State meet on Saturday night in one of college football’s most anticipated non-conference matchups of 2015. The Ducks and Spartans played last season in Eugene, with Oregon rallying from a 24-18 halftime deficit to win 46-...

Week 1 in college football usually doesn’t mean much when it comes to a team’s chances of ultimate success down the road (well, maybe for Stanford). The Big Ten took some lumps, but also shined in the spotlight. It’s time to...

Fresh off an impressive 42-24 road victory against Virginia Tech, the Ohio State Buckeyes return to the Horseshoe to take on the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. Hawaii also began the 2015 season on a positive note, defeating Colorado 28-20 in Aloha...

Rutgers dominated their FCS opponent in Week 1, to the tune of 63-13. Washington State on the other hand? Well, that program has seen better days. The Cougars suffered a crushing 24-17 defeat, after being outscored 24-7 in the second half in...

William Likely
Moving forward, Maryland opponents would be wise to refrain from kicking to punt return man/cornerback William Likely. The junior tallied a Big Ten-record 233 punt return yards and a touchdown to help lead the Terrapins to a 50-21 win over the...

It was an ugly opening weekend for both Michigan and Oregon State, but with two very different outcomes. Oregon State toppled a far lesser opponent in Weber State 26-7 in the home opener, but was only able to accumulate 391 yards of total offense...

Paul Chryst returns to Madison for his first game as the head coach of Wisconsin. Unfortunately for Chryst and the Badgers, it's on the heels of a 35-17 loss to Alabama, where the Badgers rushed for an embarrassing 40 yards on 21 carries....

Penn State got off on the wrong foot in the 2015 season opener last week. On the road in Philadelphia against the Temple Owls, Penn State’s offensive line showed as many holes, if not more, than anybody wanted to see after the 2014 season....

Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood is certainly an interesting man. His recent announcement naming sophomore quarterback Chris Laviano the starter over LSU transfer Hayden Rettig was both surprising and bold. Flood’s announcement was filled with...

Week 1 of the 2015 college football season came and went without a whole lot of surprises. Don't get me wrong, there was some good football played. Then again, if you're like me, any football is good football. That said, nothing outrageous...

Ah, college football recruiting. There’s nothing quite like it and I mean that. It has the drama of a soap opera, the passion of the game itself and politics that rival anything in Washington D.C. I wondered what effect (if any) Nebraska...

New quarterbacks were under the spotlight in the first week of the 2015 college football season. UCLA’s Josh Rosen stole the spotlight with 351 yards against Virginia, as the true freshman garnered one of the top performances by a quarterback...

The first week of every college football season always generates overreaction on both sides of the talking point. If a team lost by a bigger margin than expected or struggled, it’s easy to say that team is worse than anticipated. But if...
