Winter's cold is too much to handle.
- For Wisconsin defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, breaking down offensive film isn't easy because so few opponents use the 3-4. But, as far as Aranda's concerned, the fewer teams playing the 3-4, the bigger the advantage to the Badgers.
- First-year coach Gary Andersen has quickly earned the trust of his Wisconsin players.
- Minnesota's turnaround this season is raising plenty of eyebrows, and it's drawn quite a bit of praise -- and still some skepticism -- so far this season.
- With Ohio State on the verge of breaking the program record for the longest-winning streak, past Buckeyes reflect on Woody Hayes' 22-game streak and tip their cap to the current players.
- Michigan State has found its identity and, The Detroit News' Bob Wojnowski writes it's a pretty darn good one.
- Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald is nearly as conservative as a guy who plays penny slots, Chicago Tribune's Teddy Greenstein writes, and that type of style isn't helping the Wildcats.
- Michigan coach Brady Hoke went with the glass half-full approach and said, "Honestly, we're a pretty good team."
- Conor Boffeli's last game at Kinnick Stadium will be special in no small part thanks to his younger brother, who survived a malignant brain tumor.
- Job security for Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is no guarantee after this season, but it's "business as usual" for him as he prepares for Penn State.
- Grantland's Lindsay Schnell takes a closer look at Penn State's Christian Hackenberg and just how he's bringing happiness back to Happy Valley.
