It is hard to believe, but Illinois has not been over .500 since November 1st of their Rose Bowl season in 2008.

Check out what this former wide receiver did for Indiana in his first game as a defensive back.

Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz on his Hawkeyes traveling to Arizona this weekend: “In a perfect world, I’d rather not travel west.” (Then why did you schedule the game, coach?)

Ohio State’s Jim Tressel voted for Michigan each of the past two weeks in the USA Today coaches poll. (My question is this: Does Tressel always vote up his opponent so that his victory over said team will appear more valuable?)

Michigan State’s Le’Veon Bell is one of a number of first-year players that have significantly helped their team thus far on the season.

Minnesota is doing its best to forget everything about their loss to South Dakota.

The Northwestern coaching staff, led by head coach Pat Fitzgerald, felt that the Wildcats’ opening week victory over Vanderbilt was not as impressive as last week’s win over Illinois State.

Here is an update on the health of Ohio State, as well as a good look at the special teams.

What was it that killed Penn State last weekend, besides Alabama? Head coach Joe Paterno said it was a lack of aggression. (Paterno did not look too concerned when he walked into the locker room at halftime down 17-0…)

Purdue will be without one of their biggest playmakers for the remainder of the season.

Wisconsin will be without two wide receivers when they take on Arizona State this weekend.
