Finally back from my long, strange but entertaining journey to the Deep South. Let's see what's happening around the Big Ten.
- Nebraska has the same type of season over and over and over, Dirk Chatelain writes.
- Doug Lesmerises examines Michigan State's case to potentially beat Ohio State in the likely Big Ten title game. The Spartans are likely headed back to Indy after a big road win.
- Bulldozing back Carlos Hyde has Ohio State headed for big things, Bob Hunter writes.
- Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner continues to keep his head up despite adversity, Shawn Windsor writes.
- Illinois coaches Tim Beckman and Bill Cubit discuss their sideline scuffle.
- Northwestern has to create its own luck after having only the bad kind this season, Kevin Trahan writes.
- Bill O'Brien apparently took exception to Darrell Hazell's comments about Penn State's offensive line, and the Lions made Purdue pay on game day. A big performance on the ground has Penn State on track for a possible winning season, David Jones writes.
- Jeff Potrkyus looks back at Wisconsin's dominant win against Indiana.
- The only good news for Indiana is Wisconsin doesn't appear on the schedule until 2017, while Wisconsin certainly will miss the Hoosiers until then.
