    Brian Bennett

    Last week, we took a look at some notable offensive milestones -- 3,000 yards passing, 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving -- and which players in the Big Ten were most likely to reach them. Now, let's turn to the defensive side of the ball...

  2. Potential B1G 3,000-yard passers in 2014

    Brian Bennett

    In the past two days, we have looked at the most likely 1,000-yard rushers and 1,000-yard receivers in the Big Ten for 2014. That leaves one major offensive statistical milestone to examine: 3,000-yard passers. Quarterbacks who throw for 3,000 yar...

  3. Potential B1G 1,000-yard receivers in 2014

    Brian Bennett

    On Wednesday, Adam took a look at which backs were most likely to top 1,000 yards rushing in 2014. Today, we examine another yardage milestone for offensive skill players: 1,000 yards receiving. Unlike the 1,000-yard mark for a back, getting to 1,...

  4. NCAA restores Penn State scholarships

    Brian Bennett

    It's a milestone day for Penn State football. The NCAA has announced that it will modify some of the unprecedented sanctions it levied against the program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Specifically, Penn State will have five additiona...

    Brian Bennett

    We've spent the past several days looking at which Big Ten players can reach some major single-season statistical milestones in 2013. On Tuesday, we hit the defense and which players could compile 100 tackles this season. Let's wrap this up now by an...

    Brian Bennett

    We've taken a look at some offensive milestones and which Big Ten players are likely to reach them in 2013, including 1,000 yards rushing, 1,000 yards receiving and 3,000 yards passing. But what about the defense? Defensive statistics are a little...

  7. Big Ten's 1,000-yard receivers in 2013

    Brian Bennett

    We've taken a look at the potential 1,000-yard rushers and 3,000-yard passers in the Big Ten this season. That leaves just one major statistical milestone on the offensive side of the ball: the 1,000-yard receivers. Wide receiver wasn't the strong...

  8. Big Ten's 3,000-yard passers in 2013

    Brian Bennett

    As 1,000 yards rushing is the baseline for greatness by running backs, so is 3,000 yards passing for quarterbacks. But it is often an even harder milestone to achieve, especially in the Big Ten. Only one quarterback reached 3,000 yards passing in ...

  9. The Big Ten's double-digit sack men in '12

    Brian Bennett

    The past few weeks, we've been taking a look at which Big Ten players can hit some major, single-season statistical milestones in 2012. We turned to the defense earlier this week with a look at which players could compile 100 tackles this season. Let...

  10. The Big Ten's 3,000-yard passers in 2012

    Brian Bennett

    When it comes to passing statistics in college football, 3,000 yards is a pretty good benchmark. If you've reached that milestone as a quarterback, you're in pretty elite company. There were only 39 quarterbacks to do so in the FBS last season, an...

    Brian Bennett

    Sending thoughts and prayers to Oklahoma State today ... Cincinnati running back Isaiah Pead is nearing school milestones. UConn is still waiting on cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Running back recruit Montrell Dobbs is academically ineligible. ...

  12. The Big East's 3,000-yard passers in 2011

    Brian Bennett

    I recently took a look at the top candidates for a 1,000-yard rushing season among Big East running backs in 2011. Another offensive milestone that intrigues me is 3,000 yards passing for a quarterback. Even with the proliferation of spread offens...

  13. The Big East's 1,000-yard backs in 2011

    Brian Bennett

    The number 1,000 is like Mount Everest for a college running back. Forget for a moment that over 12 regular season games plus a bowl, a runner has to average fewer than 77 yards per game to reach the milestone of 1,000 yards in a year. It's still a m...

  14. South Florida takes down Miami

    Brian Bennett

    Hello, Big Four. OK, that may be overstating it a bit, but South Florida at least belongs in the discussion with the state's big boys now. The Bulls won at Florida State last year, and on Saturday they registered another program milestone by winni...

    How about the Syracuse Orange? Doug Marrone's rebuilding job hit a new high Saturday as Syracuse won at South Florida 13-9. It's the program's first-ever win over the Bulls, and now the Orange sit at 4-1 and 1-0 in the Big East, tied for first pla...

  16. 'Brawl' win could make West Virginia's season

    Brian Bennett

    West Virginia has notched some of the biggest wins for the Big East ever since the league took its current shape in 2005. BCS bowl triumphs over Georgia and Oklahoma gave the conference milestones to brag about. In the last two years, though, the ...
