Looking  he Legends Division:
Michigan Statehas reached the halfway point of its Big Ten
slate, standing atop the division standings with a4-0 conference mark. Each of the Spartansremaining conference games will be intra-divi
-sion showdowns, including matchups withMichigan and Nebraska, which are tied for sec-ond in the standings with 2-1 Big Ten records.
The Wolverines visit Michigan State this weekend
while Nebraska returns home to faceNorthwestern. Iowa and Minnesota are tied for
fourth in the division standings, holding 2-2 con
-ference marks and two games back of theSpartans.
Leders Division Brekdown:
Ohio State is in
first place in the Leaders Division with a 4-0
mark, while Wisconsin stands one game back at
3-1. The Buckeyes defeated division foe Penn
State last weekend to remain perfect in the con-ference, and three of the Buckeyes remaining
four contests will be division contests. The
Badgers head to Iowa this week following a byelast Saturday. Ohio State holds the head-to-head
tiebreaker over Wisconsin following the meeting
in Columbus earlier this season. Penn State and
Indiana are tied for third in the division race at
1-2, with the Nittany Lions hosting Illinois andthe Hoosiers welcoming Minnesota on Saturday.
Tweny nd Couning:
Ohio State improved thecountry’s longest active winning streak to 20consecutive last Saturday following its win over
Penn State. It is the second-longest winningstreak in program history, trailing only the 22
consecutive victories during the 1967-69 sea
sons. It is tied for the seventh-longest streak inBig Ten history. Conference programs have com
-bined for eight stretches of at least 20 or more
wins, with the 1901-03 Michigan squads holdingthe conference record of 29 consecutive victo
-ries. Ohio State is one of only four teams nation-
ally with an 8-0 record and one of eight pro
-grams who enter the week undefeated.
Big Ten universities provide over $141 million in direct financial aid to more than 8,200 student-athletesplaying on more than 300 teams in 43 different sports.
Going Bowling:
Minnesota became the fourth
Big Ten team, and third Legends Division squad,to reach the six-win standard and achieve bowl
eligibility. The Gophers knocked off nationallyranked Nebraska last weekend to reach thelandmark for the second straight season.
Minnesota has been to 15 postseason contestsin program history, having last appeared in the2012 Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas. The
Gophers join Michigan, Michigan State and OhioState as the Big Ten’s bowl-eligible programs.
Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin each have fivevictories and could become eligible for postsea
-son play with one more win.
Where We Rnk:
Four Big Ten teams appearedamong the top 25 in the latest BowlChampionship Series (BCS) standings, with
Michigan State and Wisconsin making their first
appearances this season. Ohio State improvedto 8-0 overall and won its 20th straight game tohold steady at No. 4 in the BCS poll, whileMichigan had a bye and moved up to No. 21.The Spartans moved to 7-1 on the year and
were ranked No. 22, their first BCS ranking since
Dec. 4, 2011, while the Badgers had a bye onSaturday and were slotted at No. 24, their first
appearance since Oct. 21, 2012.
Division Mchups:
Four conference conteststhis weekend will be division matchups, includ
ing two within each division. In the LegendsDivision, Michigan travels to face first-place
Michigan State and Northwestern heads to
Nebraska. In the Leaders Division, Purdue hostsdivision-leader Ohio State and Penn State wel
comes Illinois. As part of divisional play, the Big
Ten has instituted a tiebreaker to determine the
Big Ten Football Championship Game partici
-pants, if necessary. After head-to-head match-
ups, the next tiebreaker is records within thedivision, which makes winning divisional games
an important part of the Big Ten title chase. SeePage 11 of this release for the full tiebreaker.
Fory is he New 30:
With five teams rankedamong the top 16 in scoring offense, and theconference as a whole second nationally at 33.46
points per game, Big Ten offenses are amongsome of the most prolific in the nation. WithOhio State and Michigan State both scoring more
than 40 points last weekend, conference teamshave combined to score 40 points or more 36
times this season, already surpassing last year’s
total of 27 such instances. Seven conferenceteams have crossed the 40-point barrier at least
three times in 2013, with Ohio State leading the
way with six such outings. Michigan has scored atleast 40 points five times, Wisconsin and Indianahave done so four times and Illinois, MichiganState and Minnesota have three 40-point perfor
-mances. Ohio State, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska
and Wisconsin are among the nation’s top 16 inscoring offense, each averaging 39.9 points or
more per game this year.
Efficien Cook:
Michigan State quarterback
Connor Cook now ranks among the conference’sall-time single-game leaders in completion per-centage with his effort against Illinois last
Saturday. Cook completed 15 of 16 passes, a93.8 completion percentage, for 208 yards andthree touchdowns. His 93.8 percentage is sev
-enth on the Big Ten’s single-game list and he
 joins Northwestern’s Kain Colter as this year’s
additions to the chart. Colter was a perfect
12-for-12 against Ohio State on Oct. 5, which is
tied for first in Big Ten single-game history.
Trophy Time:
Two rivalry trophies will be on the
line this weekend when Iowa hosts Wisconsinand Michigan State welcomes Michigan. TheHawkeyes and Badgers first competed for the
Heartland Trophy, a brass bull statue, in 2004,with Iowa holding a 4-3 edge in the series.
Saturday’s Michigan-Michigan State contest fea-tures the battle of the Paul Bunyan Trophy. It is
the 61st time the teams will meet with the trav
-eling keepsake on the line, with Michigan holding
the all-time edge in the series, 35-23-2. In 1953,then-Michigan Governor G. Mennen Williams
donated the four-foot wooden statue to markMichigan State’s acceptance into the Big Ten.
Four-Million Srong:
Thanks to the attendancefigures following last weekend’s games across
the conference, Big Ten stadiums have wel
-comed more than four million fans through theturnstiles this year. It is the 21st straight seasonthe conference has crossed the four-million
mark in total attendance and the 24th yearoverall. The all games average of 70,932 fansper contest would rank sixth on the confer
-ence’s all-time chart, and the conference games
