Fast start for Big Ten teams


Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- I've arrived at the Big House and it's an absolutely perfect day. I'll bet Appalachian State wishes it were back here rather than Baton Rouge (ouch). The construction beams tower above the east and west sides of the stadium, and some Michigan cheerleaders are practicing on the big M at midfield. I'm going to check out this new Victors Walk in a bit.

It's been a good day so far for Big Ten teams, except Northwestern.
