Dream and disaster CFP scenarios for Big Ten

Undefeated Wisconsin winning the league and finishing in the top four is the Big Ten's simplest hope. Ohio State losing to Michigan but winning the conference could spell doom.

Urban Meyer said today in his press conference that the rivalry game against Michigan is not a "one week deal." Rather that he and his coaches have been preparing for this game all year. "We're not just starting our film study for the week," Meyer said. "That's been going on for a long time." When asked a similar question, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh stated that he and his staff have done much of the same because of the magnitude that this rivalry brings.

Remembering Terry Glenn

Glenn came out of nowhere to become an All-American at Ohio State as a junior, on his way to being a top-10 pick by the Patriots. He tallied 8,823 receiving yards and 44 TDs for three different NFL teams, with one of those scores being Tom Brady's first career TD pass.

Michigan's quarterback for its game against Ohio State this weekend remains a question mark. Brandon Peters is going through concussion protocol and will be evaluated again Monday. Jim Harbaugh says he's not sure if Wilton Speight will be cleared for contact in practice this week.

An illustrated guide to rivalry week

Some games, such as Alabama-Auburn, have major playoff implications. Others, such as Ole Miss-Mississippi State, are just about good, old-fashioned hatred. Either way, these are the battles this weekend that make college football great.

Barrett makes Big Ten History

With two touchdown passes in Ohio State's 52-14 win over Illinois on Saturday, J.T. Barrett (101) became the first player in Big Ten history with 100 career passing TDs. Barrett continues to distance himself from former Purdue QB Drew Brees (90 passing TDs).

Though Wisconsin is undefeated, FPI believes there are seven teams with at least one loss that are better than the Badgers going forward. The model currently ranks Miami 12th. Remember, FPI is strictly rating a team's strength, not its resume.
