Kinnick the graveyard for BT unbeatens

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Kinnick Stadium hasn't been kind to recent Big Ten national title game hopefuls.

In 2008, the Big Ten's last unbeaten team, Penn State, fell to Iowa in early November at Kinnick.

Last fall, Iowa's amazing 9-0 start ended with a stunning home loss to unranked Northwestern.

Now it appears Michigan State's dreams of reaching the title game will be dashed at Kinnick. And barring a wild month of December, the Big Ten will be left out of the national title game once again.

This is clearly not a good place to be if you're undefeated late in the season.
