  • Big Ten West teams step up against East teams Oct 1, 2014 6:20 AM
    One of the prevailing notions heading into the season was that the Big Ten East could end up being a lot better than the West. It didn’t look that way last weekend. Though it was clearly a small sample size, Saturday’s performances were encouraging for a newly-created division fighting for respect.

  • Michigan State, Nebraska have gaudy offensive numbers Oct 1, 2014 6:28 AM
    No. 10 Michigan State is off to a historic start on offense and faces another high-scoring team in No. 19 Nebraska to open Big Ten play on Saturday night. Michigan State (3-1) has scored 201 points through four games, best in school history. The Cornhuskers (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) are averaging 45.4 points per game.

  • Change in the air for North Central Sep 30, 2014 10:49 PM
    North Central’s football team has had an emotional week. Days after the team lost its first regular-season game in almost two full years, coach John Thorne announced he will step down at the end of the calendar year.

  • Coaches use large network to watch for injury Sep 30, 2014 6:46 PM
    The sideline is often the worst place to watch a football game. Even for the head coach standing front and center, getting a good look at what is happening on the field can be difficult. Behind the coach can be 100 players and dozens of assistants and staffers packed into an area 50 yards long, all zipping from play to play. How is a coach supposed to look for injuries in all that activity, and still run his team? With plenty of help.

  • Thorne to succeed Thorne at North Central Sep 29, 2014 5:41 PM

  • Maryland routs Indiana 37-15 in Big Ten opener Sep 27, 2014 6:10 PM
    Maryland’s C.J. Brown ran for one touchdown and threw for another Saturday, and backup Caleb Rowe threw two more TD passes in the second half to lead the Terrapins past Indiana 37-15. The Terrapins (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) have won two straight overall and five in a row on the road — including their inaugural Big Ten game.

  • No. 19 Badgers hold off South Florida 27-10 Sep 27, 2014 4:23 PM
    Melvin Gordon rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 19 Wisconsin overcame a sluggish start to hold off South Florida 27-10 on Saturday. Gordon scored on carries of seven and 43 yards on the Badgers’ first two drives of the second half after running room finally opened up for the star tailback. The Bulls (2-3) put up an admirable effort in their first road contest of the year, getting to within 17-10 midway through the third quarter on Rodney Adams’ 26-yard touchdown run off a reverse. South Florida’s defense had held Gordon to 50 yards in the first half. But Wisconsin (3-1) inched away in the final 20 minutes to extend their nonconference winning streak at home to 32 games. The Badgers pounced on a South Florida turnover to start the fourth quarter with a clock-eating drive that put the game away. The Bulls thought they had a big gain into the red zone after Mike White connected with Kennard Swanson for a 52-yard completion. But Swanson fumbled following a lunging hit by safety Lubern Figaro. Linebacker Vince Biegel recovered at the 10. From there, Wisconsin marched 90 yards in 18 plays on a series that ended with Tanner McEvoy’s 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Sam Arneson with 5:17 left for a 17-point lead with 5:17 left. Still, the offense remains a work in progress with Big Ten play beginning next week at Northwestern. A week after compiling a league-record 644 yards rushing, Wisconsin had to overcome a very slow start. South Florida won the matchup in the trenches in the first half, even with starting defensive tackle Todd Chandler missing the game with an eye injury. When Wisconsin ball carriers did slip through, they were met by a gaggle of Bulls flying to the ball. Gordon had just 50 yards on 17 carries in the first half; the previous week Gordon had amassed 179 yards and four touchdowns by halftime alone. The blockers looked rejuvenated in the second half. Gordon, who finished with 32 carries on the day, found more room to run after halftime. A 43-yard touchdown run with 8:04 in the third quarter was vintage Gordon. He broke two tackles before shuffling his feet to freeze safety Lamar Robbins for a second, a move that allowed the junior to dart left untouched the rest of the way into the end zone. Backup running back Corey Clement finished with 77 yards on 16 carries. He seemed to get just as much enjoyment throwing an open-field block on the edge that leveled an unsuspecting Robbins that allowed Gordon to pick up a first down. McEvoy, making his fourth career start at Wisconsin at quarterback, finished 11 of 18 for 160 yards. He missed on a couple throws to open receivers for potentially big gains. But McEvoy shook off the mistakes. After overthrowing Arneson on one long pass, McEvoy found tight end Troy Fumagalli for a 14-yard gain on third-and-5 to get to the Bulls 25. Five plays later, McEvoy found Arneson for the TD pass to put the game away. White was 8 of 19 for 173 yards. South Florida running back Marlon Mack, who was averaging 125 yards a game coming into the afternoon, was held to 34 yards on 10 carries.

  • No. 9 Michigan State routs Wyoming 56-14 Sep 27, 2014 3:50 PM
    Michigan State’s record-setting offense was at it again in a 56-14 rout of Wyoming on Saturday in its final tuneup before the Big Ten season. Jeremy Langford rushed for 137 of the No. 9 Spartans’ 533 total yards and his 3-1 team completed its most explosive prolific four games in school history with a 50.3-point average.

  • Illini crushed by undefeated Cornhuskers, 45-14 Sep 28, 2014 12:25 AM
    Ameer Abdullah ran for 208 yards and three touchdowns, Imani Cross added a career-high 109 yards and a TD, and No. 21 Nebraska beat Illinois 45-14 on Saturday night. The Cornhuskers (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) are off to their best start since 2010 heading into next week’s game at No. 9 Michigan State.

  • Golson completes 25 straight, No. 8 ND wins 31-15 Sep 27, 2014 11:38 PM
    Everett Golson completed 25 straight passes, setting a Notre Dame record, and threw for four touchdowns to lead the eighth-ranked Fighting Irish to a 31-15 victory against Syracuse on Saturday night. Golson’s record-breaking game was far from perfect. The quarterback threw his first two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter by Durell Eskridge. He fumbled the ball away deep in Syracuse territory and bumbled an attempt to spike the ball late in the first half to stop the clock into another giveaway.

  • Barrett, Elliott lead Buckeyes by Bearcats, 50-28 Sep 27, 2014 9:18 PM
    J.T. Barrett passed for 330 yards and four touchdowns and Ezekiel Elliott ran for 182 yards and a score to lead No. 22 Ohio State past Gunner Kiel and Cincinnati 50-28 on Saturday night.

  • Minnesota beats Michigan 30-14 Sep 27, 2014 6:33 PM
    Mitch Leidner ran for a touchdown and passed for another and Minnesota beat Michigan 30-14 on Saturday to win the Little Brown Jug for the second time in 24 years. Minnesota (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) also got a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown by De’Vondre Campbell, highlighting a defensive effort that saw the Golden Gophers limit Michigan (2-3, 0-1 Big Ten) to 171 yards of total offense.

  • Buffalo Grove native Weisman leads Iowa over Purdue Sep 27, 2014 4:48 PM
    Iowa spotted Purdue a 10-0 lead, then dominated the final 49 minutes, rallying for a 24-10 Big Ten opening victory Saturday. The Hawkeyes (4-1, 1-0) took a 17-10 lead with 45 seconds remaining in the third quarter on a 23-yard touchdown pass from C.J. Beathard to Kevonte Martin-Manley, capping a six-play, 71-yard drive.

  • Northwestern impressive in 29-6 win over Penn State Sep 27, 2014 4:26 PM
    Trevor Siemian ran for three touchdowns and passed for 258 yards to lead Northwestern past Penn State 29-6 on Saturday. Siemian, who was 21 of 37, and the Wildcats (2-2, 1-0) established control early with short passes and ball-control offense that netted 361 yards.

  • Northwestern wary of Penn State in Big Ten opener Sep 26, 2014 4:07 PM
    Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald would like to keep Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg and the Nittany Lions’ top-ranked defense out of the headlines. But after the way he praised both this week, Fitzgerald might have to write off that idea. He labeled Hackenberg as “deadly accurate” and “as good a quarterback as anyone in the country.” He called Penn State’s defensive tackles “dominant” and its linebackers “spectacular.”

  • Illini to open Big Ten play in Nebraska Sep 26, 2014 4:06 PM
    Ameer Abdullah has the third-most rushing attempts in the nation and has touched the ball on one-third of Nebraska’s plays from scrimmage. He wants to continue with the heavy workload. That’s good for the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers (4-0) and bad for Illinois (3-1), which visits Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

  • Syracuse next for Notre Dame, maturing Golson Sep 26, 2014 4:05 PM
    The offense Brian Kelly ran when he was coach at Cincinnati, the one that pushed the pace and regularly rung up 30-point games, has finally arrived at Notre Dame. The return of quarterback Everett Golson and his development from game-manager to playmaker has allowed Kelly to unleash his spread attack. The result is an offense on pace to be the most productive in the coach’s five-year tenure in South Bend, Indiana.

  • Spartans hope for more progress against Wyoming Sep 26, 2014 4:08 PM
    Michigan State (2-1) and Wyoming (3-1) do have one thing in common: They both lost to Oregon. The Cowboys, however, were somewhat fortunate to have won their other three games. That’s not a resume that should strike too much fear in the defending Big Ten champions, but Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio wants his team to be sharp this weekend.

  • Indiana’s Coleman poses challenge for Maryland Sep 26, 2014 4:05 PM
    Maryland coach Randy Edsall has seen enough of Indiana running back Tevin Coleman. On tape, he’s big, overpowering and fast. On paper, his numbers are intimidating. And in person, well, Coleman lives up to the image.
