  3. Tracking our B1G fantasy teams: Week 2

    Brian Bennett

    Adam likes to crow about his narrow victory in our Big Ten fantasy league last season, but order was restored in Week 1 of 2013. My team, The One Who Knocks, wiped the floor with Adam's Trombone Shorties by a score of 139-93. I had a balanced atta...

  5. Big Ten weekend rewind: Week 1

    Brian Bennett

  6. 2012 Big Ten regular-season wrap

    Brian Bennett

    The Big Ten's 2012 regular season can be summed up by the following facts: The league's best team, Ohio State, went 12-0 but won't play in a bowl because of probation. The league's best nonconference win came in Week 1 when Iowa beat BCS-bound ...

  7. Badgers seek return to explosive ways

    Brian Bennett

    Something was a little off with the Wisconsin offense in Week 1. The Badgers beat Northern Iowa 27-21 in a game much closer than anyone expected. Mostly because few people expected the Badgers to score "only" 27 points. Sure, last season's team...

    Brian Bennett
