- Indiana-Penn State, which will take place next weekend, got its television placement today as it was announced that the game would start at noon and be shown on the Big Ten Network. If the Hoosiers beat Wisconsin this week, Indiana will have a chance to stake its claim to the faux Leaders Division championship and earn its way into the Big Ten Championship in Happy Valley.
- This week's line for Penn State-Nebraska started at NEB -9 but has since slipped to the Huskers by a touchdown in the nearly 24 hours it has been up. Have at it, gamblin' men (and women)
- The women's soccer team fell 1-0 to Illinois on Friday in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament. Earlier last week, they won their 15th straight regular season conference title. They will still be in the NCAA Tournament, though, and they will find out their bracket during the selection show at 4:30 this afternoon.
- Field hockey, on the other hand, won the conference tournament for the second year in a row and forward Kelsey Amy won her second straight conference tournament MVP award. Their selection show will take place tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m.
- Despite another 300-yard performance, Matt McGloin was shut out of the Big Ten football awards this week. The offensive players of the week were receiver Cody Lattimer of Indiana (3 TD receptions) and Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez (160 passing yards, 205 rushing yards) who won his fourth honor of the season. Michigan State punter Mike Sadler and Ohio State Ryan Shazier and Bri'onte Dunn were also honored.
- It's been 15 years since one of the biggest hits in Penn State football history, one that Steve Jones said was one he had never seen before in 32 years of announcing. Read about the Daydrion Taylor and Bob Stephenson hit, which ended both of their careers, here. (And go to hbeach for more information, I would imagine.)
- The Nebraska SBNation blog, Corn Nation, has a poll on whether Graham Spanier's portrait should be taken down at UNL. If you remember, Spanier was the chancellor of Nebraska before coming to Penn State.
- Finally, while Sandy might be out of sight, but not yet out of mind, a typical, mid-fall Nor'easter should be making its way up the coast during the early part of this week. Once again, we're thinking of you, NY/NJ bros.
