Big Ten's lunch links

11/21/2013

How can there only be two weeks left in the regular season? Can we file for an extension?

  • Michigan State can impress off the field, too. The Spartans break down some of their dance moves after they were caught on camera celebrating the win over Nebraska.

  • Brady Hoke defended his decision after coming up short on a late gamble last week before Michigan ultimately won its game vs. Northwestern.

  • The run of success Minnesota has been on lately is building buzz from alumni, which could help sustain the program into the future.

  • Wisconsin is dealing with some health concerns at center, which could be a problem as its offensive line tries to slow down Minnesota "freak" Ra'Shede Hageman.

  • Senior day for Ohio State will provide an opportunity to pay tribute to an invaluable group of four veterans on the offensive line. It's also a reminder that it will soon have to replace them all.

  • Once a "gangly gazelle," Sam Burtch has filled out his frame and is becoming an impact receiver for Nebraska.

  • Iowa still has memories of what Devin Gardner did to its defense last season, and it has made an emphasis on avoiding a repeat performance against Michigan on Saturday.

  • Indiana has been at its worst on the road and in bad weather, which might not be the best formula for visiting Ohio State late in the year.

  • Pat Zerbe's dream to play at Penn State came true, and he will put the finishing touches on his career at home this weekend.

  • Tim Beckman's back is to the wall, and there's already talk that the Illinois coach may need to beat Purdue to save his job.
