BIG TEN. BIG NEWS.
Breking Down he Legends Division:
EachLegends Division squad has played two confer-ence games, with Michigan State and Nebraskaholding the top spot with matching 2-0 marks.Michigan and Iowa are tied for third in the divi-sion race with 1-1 Big Ten records andMinnesota and Northwestern are two games
back at 0-2. Michigan State welcomes Purdue
on Saturday, the second in a series of threecross-divisional matchups for the Spartans. TheHuskers have a bye this weekend before return-
ing to action on Oct. 26 at Minnesota in the
first of four straight Legends Division matchups.
Breking Down he Leders Division:
Ohio
State carries the lone perfect conference recordin the Leaders Division, boasting a 2-0 Big Tenmark heading into this weekend’s contestagainst Iowa. Wisconsin is second in the divi-sion race with a 2-1 mark, but the Buckeyes’hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the
Badgers following the teams’ Sept. 28 meetingin Columbus. Indiana and Penn State are tied
for third in the division with 1-1 Big Ten marks,
while Illinois and Purdue are tied for fifth.
Ahed of he Pck:
Boasting the conference’s
lone unblemished record at 6-0, Ohio State hasthe nation’s longest active winning streak at 18
games. The current stretch is the fourth-longestin program history, trailing the 22 straight wins
from 1967-69. A Buckeye victory on Saturday
would match the second-longest streak in pro-
gram history, equaling the 19 straight triumphsduring the 2005-06 and 2002-03 seasons. The19 victories would rank as the eighth-longest
stretch in Big Ten annals. Conference programshave combined for seven stretches of at least
20 or more wins, with the 1901-03 Michigansquads holding the conference record of 29consecutive victories. Ohio State is one of only14 teams around the country yet to suffer a loss
this season.
 
BIG TEN FOOTBALL WEEKLY RELEASE - WEEK 8 2
HONORING LEGENDS. BUILDING LEADERS.
Big Ten universies provide over $141 million in direct nancial aid to more than 8,200 student-athletesplaying on more than 300 teams in 42 dierent sports.
In he Division:
Two divisional matchups arepart of the conference’s five-game slate thisweekend, include one contest within each divi-sion. In the Legends Division, Northwesternhosts Minnesota in each team’s third confer-ence matchup. It will be the Wildcats’ openinggame within the division and first of five straightdivision contests, while it will be the third of four consecutive Legends Division matchups for
the Gophers. In the Leaders Division, Illinois
welcomes Wisconsin in what will be the fourthconference and third divisional contest for theBadgers and the second Big Ten contest andfirst division matchup for the Illini.
Poin Tken
: The four winning Big Ten programs
last Saturday averaged 41 points in their respec
-
tive victories as each squad scored at least 35points. Michigan State, Nebraska and Penn Stateeach finished with 40 or more points, with the
Huskers leading all conference teams in scoring
last weekend with 44 points. It is the first time
this season every winning conference programhas scored 30 or more points on the sameSaturday.
Spreding he Offense:
Now at the halfwaypoint of the 2013 regular season, Big Ten pro-grams are scoring at a higher rate than a seasonago. Through seven weeks of the 2012 cam-
paign, conference programs averaged 29.3points per game, totaling 2,257 points in 77
games. Through the seventh week of the 2013
season, conference teams are averaging 34.7points per game, combining for 2,465 pointsthrough 71 games, an increase of more than
five points per game from 2012. In addition, the
34.7 points per game is second among all
Football Bowl Subdivision conferences, behind
the Pac-12’s average of 36.7 points per contest.
Defense Doesn’ Res:
While Big Ten offensesare scoring at an increased rate, conferencedefenses are continuing to maintain their stingy
ways. Six conference programs rank among the
nation’s top 20 in total defense, seven rankamong the top 30 in rushing defense and four
are among the top 25 in scoring defense.
Michigan State leads the country in rushing
defense at 58.0 yards per game, one of five con
-ference teams among the top 10 in the catego-ry. The Spartans also top the nation in totaldefense, while Wisconsin is fifth in the countryin scoring defense. A complete list of where BigTen teams and student-athletes rank among the
NCAA leaders can be found on Page 3.
Going Overime:
Last Saturday’s Michigan-Penn
State showdown in State College was one for theBig Ten record books. The four-overtime thrillerwas the longest game in conference history, sur-passing the multiple conference games that weredecided in triple overtime, most recently inMinnesota’s season-opening road victory against
UNLV on Aug. 30, 2012. The last Big Ten matchup
that was decided in three overtimes was on Nov.
6, 2010, when Michigan and Illinois combined for
the most points in a single game in conference
history, resulting in a 67-65 Wolverine win.
Kicking Around Records:
Michigan State punterMike Sadler established a new Big Ten all gamesrecord last Saturday en route to claiming confer-
ence Special Teams Player of the Week honors.Sadler averaged 59.3 yards per punt, totaling237 yards on just four attempts in MSU’s winover Indiana. The Spartan junior broke the pergame average of 57.3 yards per punt set byOhio State’s Fred Morrison in 1949. A returning
first-team All-Big Ten performer from a season
ago, Sadler ranks 25th in the nation in punting
average and leads all conference punters in thecategory.
Geing Afer he Qurerbck:
Three defen-sive standouts recorded two or more sacks lastSaturday, including two such efforts in the
Michigan-Penn State showdown. Penn State’sC.J. Olaniyan finished with 2.5 sacks, the most
by a Big Ten player this season, against theWolverines en route to winning Big Ten
Defensive Player of the Week honors.Michigan’s Frank Clark and Nebraska’s RandyGregory each recorded 2.0 sacks, both careerhighs, against Penn State and Purdue, respec
-tively. The last time three Big Ten players
achieved that feat was on Sept. 8, 2012, whenMinnesota’s Ra’Shede Hageman, Penn State’sDeion Barnes and Purdue’s Kawann Short each
had two sacks.
