Ron Zook is claiming Illinois’ game against Penn State this weekend is a “must win” game. Both teams are 0-1 in Big Ten play so far.

You have to love Indiana’s Ben Chappell’s attitude: “I would throw for 1-for-2 for zero yards if we could get a win.”

Iowa solidified its dominance over Penn State with a third consecutive win over the Nittany Lions.

I am sure most of you have heard by now—Michigan’s Denard Robinson became the first player to rush and pass for over 200 yards in a game TWICE in a career. Robinson also holds the top three individual, single-game total yard performances in Wolverine history. Maybe this Heisman talk is real.

Even without its head coach, Michigan State still beat a Top 15 team at home.

Minnesota and head coach Tim Brewster feel the Golden Gophers could be 5-0 right now.

How about a 45-yard touchdown for your first career catch? Northwestern’s Tony Jones did just that.

Terrelle Pryor left the game Saturday with a quad injury. The Ohio State quarterback returned in the third quarter but admitted after the final whistle blew that he was still feeling some pain.

Penn State might want to invest in a few loose ends, because two Nittany Lion tight ends have suffered year-ending injuries thus far on the young season.

What is the primary reason for Wisconsin’s loss to Michigan State? Could it be the Badgers’ non-conference schedule?
