  • Northern Illinois trolls Fighting Illini in ad

    Brian Bennett

    Northern Illinois beat Northwestern 23-15 last weekend, after which I wrote that the Huskies have the best football program in the state of Illinois. The school's alumni group must feel that way, too, judging by this full-page ad in Friday's Chica...

  • Knee injury could sideline Iowa's Scherff

    Brian Bennett

  • The Big Ten's path to the playoff

    Brian Bennett

    Brian Bennett
