Wisconsin at Nebraska, Sept. 29 This could be a preview of the Big Ten championship game. Regardless, you'll be seeing a lot of red in the stands, for better or worse.   Michigan State at Michigan, Oct. 20 Whoever wins this game might have the inside track on the Legends Division crown. The teams also can compare notes on losing to Notre Dame.   Nebraska at Northwestern, Oct. 20 A victory over the powerhouse Cornhuskers would go a long way toward convincing some that the Wildcats are for real - especially with all the Nebraska fans expecting to show up.   ...

If you've been losing sleep at night trying to project the outcome of the Big Ten men's basketball tournament, don't worry—it's probably not just you. "I think it's going to be the most unpredictable Big Ten conference tournament in the history of the tournament," Big Ten Network analyst Stephen Bardo said. How unpredictable? So much so that even a team that finished 6-12 in conference play can't be counted out. "My dark horse is gonna be interesting: I would say Penn State," he said.

The Big Ten was the big man on campus entering this NCAA tournament, with seven teams in the Big Dance. Four are left standing after the first weekend. Who came up big in the clutch? We rate the Big Ten teams' performances on our Madness Meter.   Illinois (4 out of 10) You get your money's worth with the Illini. For every scoring drought they put you through, they give you a stretch where they look as potent as the Miami Heat. That said, Illinois couldn't get hot long enough to upend the Miami Hurricanes on Sunday.

The battle for Illinois returns to Chicago this weekend. Northwestern hosts Illinois in men's basketball on Sunday in a rivalry that has grown in intensity. RedEye caught up with several Chicago-area natives on the Wildcats and Illini to talk basketball, bobsledding and "The Mighty Ducks. " What makes your school Chicago's Big Ten team? Dave Sobolewski, Northwestern junior guard: Being able to get to Chicago with a short car or train ride, Northwestern truly has the world's greatest city at its fingertips.

With the Big Ten men's basketball season under way, we're only a few months from learning who will reign as conference champs. Of course, we'd rather not wait that long. So we asked alums from all 12 schools to tell us why their team is the one to beat in 2012-13.   ILLINOIS I-L-L! The team hasn't played this well since the days of Dee Brown and Deron Williams, back when we ended up at the Final Four in 2005. Brandon Paul and Co. have made watching Illini basketball exciting again - as opposed to embarrassing.

Attention, sexy coeds! Playboy is casting students in its college pictorial issue, one of the magazine's most popular editions for the last 36 years. So, ladies, it's time to show off your Big Ten pride. What else did you think we'd say? This year, the October 2012 issue will focus on "Girls of the Big Ten" and be on newsstands and online Sept. 21. Each year, the issue highlights a major college conference. Last year's edition centered on the Southeastern Conference. The Big Ten was last featured in 2008.

This past week I had the pleasure of covering the Big Ten tournament for the first time. I must say, I was not disappointed with what I saw. With a total paid attendance of 124,543, the Big Ten deserves a big pat on the back. But every year around this time, there is debate as to whether conference tournaments are good for college basketball. The most recent outspoken critic is Kentucky coach John Calipari. He's on the record as saying conference tournaments "are a waste of time.

I think I've got this sabermetrics thing figured out. I'm on to Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer. After analyzing charts of data, tendencies, numerous situations, probabilities, outcomes, statistics, the Cubs have figured out they need to go after Prince Fielder and/or Albert Pujols. Well, duh. I could have told you that. Geniuses, I'll tell ya. If they're so smart, how come David DeJesus is a Cub? Guy hit less than .250 last year. I want to see his metrics. You know, watching these guys go after the big boys, I suddenly remembered something about the Boston Red Sox. They spent about a billion...

Sure, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald knows the ins and outs of football, but RedEye wanted to him to play a different type of game: word association. We asked Fitzgerald what word comes to mind for each Big Ten program. No surprise - he schooled some of the teams. > > Illinois: Rival > > Indiana: Respect > > Iowa: Rival > > Michigan: Big House > > Michigan State: Toughness > > Minnesota: Toughness > > Nebraska: Tradition > > Northwestern: Rising > > Ohio State: Huge school > > Purdue: Basketball on grass ...
