The links have no term limits.
- It looks like the Nebraska-Oklahoma series will return in the distant future (2021). The Huskers were comfortable with their backs against the wall at Michigan State. Penn State's offense provides a very different look for the Blackshirts.
- Wisconsin's big question this week is the quarterback spot. Former Badgers starting QB Joel Stave knew right away his injury was bad. Wisconsin rarely fares well in presidential election years, Andy Baggot writes.
- Penn State's road success, Bill Belton's benching and other key Lions story lines entering Week 11. Former Lions WR Justin Brown has fond memories of Penn State.
- The Big Ten's Jim Delany and the Pac-12's Larry Scott reportedly square off about a seventh contract bowl.
- Michigan's Devin Gardner proves himself as a quarterback. Wolverines players say they aren't focused on the Big Ten race.
- Purdue coach Danny Hope is a goner, according to Pat Forde. A Boilers running back recruit looks to make an instant impact.
- Ohio State QB Braxton Miller can dodge a lot of things, but not Heisman talk. Urban Meyer might be in the midst of his greatest coaching job, Phil Harrison writes.
- Marc Morehouse confirms someone has to win the "Down and Out Bowl" between Iowa and Purdue. There's not much new on Iowa's latest depth chart.
- Illinois offensive lineman Corey Lewis takes the long road back to the field. Tim Beckman's old team (Toledo) is doing much better than his current one.
- Northwestern has no idea which Michigan quarterback it will face. An off week gave the Wildcats some much-needed rest.
- Adam Replogle is the heart of Indiana's defense (subscription required).
- Joe Rexrode's Michigan State mailbag addresses a few things other than officiating. A week off comes at a good time for Michigan State.
- A defensive line recruit from Minnesota lands his first offer from the Gophers.
