  • Top receivers a bright spot for Illini Oct 17, 2014 6:13 PM
    Receivers Mike Dudek and Geronimo Allison have given Illinois (3-4, 0-3 Big Ten) something to get excited about in season when just about everything around them is trending the other way. After consecutive losses to Nebraska, Wisconsin and Purdue, it isn’t clear where the next win is going to come from for coach Tim Beckman.

  • Northwestern, Nebraska brace for another tight game Oct 17, 2014 6:05 PM
    The last time Nebraska played at Northwestern two years ago, so many Cornhuskers fans packed the stadium that the home team had to go to a silent count on offense.

  • Big Ten has 4 of the nation’s top 7 running backs Oct 14, 2014 7:38 PM
    The Big Ten Conference traditionally has been a run-first league and nothing has changed halfway through the current season. Sure there are teams that run the spread offense or some degree of it and there are teams that can air the ball out. The bottom line, though, is that the run continues to be the strength of the league in this expansion season with Rutgers and Maryland joining the fold. Four of the nation’s top seven rushers are from the Big Ten, and the number might have been higher had Paul James of Rutgers not gone down early with a knee injury.

  • Playoff committee cautious when talking football Oct 13, 2014 4:08 PM
    West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck takes what he calls a lawyerly approach to talking about his involvement with the College Football Playoff selection committee.

While all 13 selection committee members have been encouraged to steer clear of public opinions about teams and how the season is playing out, the ADs have been advised to be especially cautious about what they do and say for fear of being perceived as biased.

  • Last 3 Nebraska-Northwestern games tight affairs Oct 13, 2014 4:06 PM
    If No. 19 Nebraska’s game Saturday at Northwestern is anything like the teams’ previous three meetings, there’ll be no shortage of drama. Since the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten in 2011, their three games against the Wildcats have been decided by a total of seven points. The Huskers have won two of those games.

  • Iowa rolls past Indiana 45-29 Oct 11, 2014 5:56 PM

    The Boilermakers used a solid ground game and stouter defense last weekend to produce their most complete game of coach Darrell Hazell’s tenure. This week, the study sessions have taken longer and required more attention to detail with No. 8 Michigan State coming to town on Saturday.

  • QB an issue for both Illinois, Wisconsin Oct 10, 2014 4:50 PM
    Uncertainty at quarterback this late into the season can mean problems for an offense.

The Illini (3-3, 0-2) need Riley O’Toole to step in for injured starter Wes Lunt when they visit Camp Randall Stadium.

  • Northwestern, Minnesota overcome shaky starts Oct 10, 2014 4:53 PM
    It’s not often for there to be a lot on the line when Northwestern and Minnesota meet on the football field. There will be on Saturday. The Wildcats have impressive victories at Penn State and home against Wisconsin to start out 2-0 in the Big Ten. The Golden Gophers are coming off a bye week that they entered on the high of a rare victory at Michigan.

  • Imrem: Illini’s reverse relevance not good Oct 7, 2014 7:43 PM

  • Offense good, but defense still rules in Big Ten Oct 7, 2014 5:39 PM
    In a day when the spread offense seems to be in command and when it appears every game ends up 45-38, there are glimmers that defenses are holding their own in the Big Ten.
