BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Big Ten game of the week is in Madison where the Badgers host Penn State with a trip to the inaugural B1G Championship Game at stake. The winner will play Michigan State. In other action, the 108th edition of The Game will be played at the Big House.
Iowa at Nebraska: Finally….the Redenbacher Bowl, even though Orville actually was born in Indiana and went to Purdue…I have...
MADISON, Wis. When Wisconsin's 2011 college football schedule was released a little more than a year ago, Badgers coach Bret Bielema kept a mental note of what might transpire over Thanksgiving weekend.
And it had nothing to do with turkey or stuffing.
With Wisconsin slated to play host to Penn State and both teams part of the newly formed Leaders Division in the Big Ten,...
The No. 16 Wisconsin Badgers (9-2, 5-2) wrap up their regular season schedule Saturday afternoon against No. 19 Penn State (9-2, 6-1). The winner will head to the first ever Big Ten Championship Game against No. 14 Michigan State December 3, representing the Leaders division.
Here are my key matchups and story lines for Saturday’s game:
Russell Wilson vs. Penn State Defense
Chaos reigns! Two really-not-so-surprising upsets highlighted the weekend. In Ames, IA (Iowa State beating then-No. 2 Oklahoma State) and in Eugene, OR (USC stomping Oregon) has put three SEC teams in the top slots in the BCS poll…LSU, Alabama and, yes, friends…like I’ve been saying since pre-season, Arkansas. What a weekend…
Oklahoma State kicker Quinn Sharp reacts...
What’s that? All you want for Thanksgiving is some Week 13 Crystal Ball Run Staff Picks? Ask, and you shall receive.
Here are this weekend’s holiday picks. However, you will notice one, glaring exception: There is no mention of the “Game of the Century Part Deux,” Arkansas and LSU. That’s because much like we did in the week preceding LSU-Alabama, Crystal Ball Run will...
With just two weekends remaining before the big announcement, college football’s most outstanding players have time for one final push to prove they’re worthy of the sport’s top honor.
Wisconsin's Montee Ball doesn't get as much Heisman press as some of the others in the running, but he's having a great season for the Badgers, with 1,466 yards and 25 TDs
The last few weeks of this season have been absolutely crazy and have caused a chaos at the top of the polls. Oklahoma State was in the drivers seat to get a bid to the BCS National Championship Game but they got upended by Iowa State in Ames. Just when Oregon started to get back into the race, they got beat by USC and Matt Barkley. Finally, Robert Griffin III stepped up and had...
The Heisman race is as muddled as the BCS standings. Major candidates all have a slip-up on their resume, so there's no clear cut winner. No Oregon Duck has ever won a Heisman, (though the Beavers have one, Terry Baker in 1963) and the Ducks are going to miss the plane to New York this year as well.
LaMichael James was among the preseason favorites, but an injury and subpar...
The end of the season is near and so is Thanksgiving. Time to be thankful for a few things and get ready for some rival games. First thing I have to be thankful for is You Tube. I don’t know how many times I have had the Lee Corso over excited moment from last week sent to me. I laugh every time I watch it though. I’m not going to apologize for that. Next I have to...
