B1G Momens in Rose Bowl Hisory
Eddleman was named Illinois’ Big Ten Medal of Honor recipient in 1949 aer earning a combined 11 varsity leers for the Illini in the sports of football, basketball and track and eld. Eddleman led the Big Ten in punng in 1948 and also punted for the Illinois team that played in the 1947 Rose Bowl Game. Eddleman also holds the school records for longest punt and punt return. Beyond the football eld, Eddleman was a Chicago Tribune Silver Basketball winner as the Big Ten MVP, a two-me NBA All-Star, and competed in the high jump in the 1948 Summer Olympics in London. His name appears on the Big Ten’s Eddleman-Fields Punter of the Year award.

The Buckeyes entered the Rose Bowl Game No. 1 in the country,
needing a victory to secure the
naonal championship. The teams traded touchdowns in the rst and second quarters and remained ed entering the fourth. A 34-yard eld goal by Don Sutherin with 14 min-
utes remaining in the game would
be the deciding points.

Erning Their Shre:
 With a road victory at Nebraska, Michigan State secured at least a share of the Legends Division title. The Spartans improved to 6-0 in the Big Ten and 9-1 overall to regis-
ter their second division crown in the last three sea
-sons. The Spartans won the outright Legends Division title in 2011 to advance to the inaugural Big Ten Championship Game.
Looking  he Legends Division:
 Three teams remain in the running to earn at least a share of the
Legends Division title, and two still have an opportu-nity to represent the division in the Big Ten Football Championship Game. Michigan State enters the week with a 6-0 mark in Big Ten play, and a win in one of its next two games would send the Spartans to Indianapolis. Nebraska and Minnesota both stand at 4-2 in conference and maintain hopes for a share of the division crown. Michigan State and Minnesota each hold head-to-head victories over Nebraska, making the Spartans and Gophers the
two division teams aiming for a title game berth.
Leders Division Brekdown:
The race for the
Leaders Division title and Big Ten Football Championship Game berth is down to Ohio State and Wisconsin with two weeks to play. The Buckeyes are on top of the division with a perfect 6-0 mark in Big Ten play, extending their confer-ence games only winning streak to 14, which is one away from matching the eighth-longest streak in conference history. Wisconsin is in second, holding a 5-1 record in conference action. Since they hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Badgers with a win on Sept. 28, the Buckeyes can punch their ticket to the title game with one victory in their
final two games of the regular season.

The Rce for Division Chmpionships
Big Ten schools have produced more than 1,450 Academic All-Americans, more than any other conference, including 46 in the last academic year.
Keep Rolling:
Ohio State tied a program record with its 22nd consecutive victory last Saturday, which is tied for the fifth longest streak in Big Ten history. The Buckeyes hold the nation’s longest active-winning streak and the longest winning streak by a conference team in more than 40 years. Ohio State is among a group of six unde-
feated teams in the nation and one of just four
squads in the country with a 10-0 mark. In addi-tion, Buckeye coach Urban Meyer’s 22 straight vic-tories are the fifth-most by a coach to begin his tenure at a school, behind Pop Warner’s 30 at Pittsburgh, Fielding Yost’s 29 at Michigan, Walter Camp’s 28 at Yale and Larry Coker’s 24 at Miami.
Four in he BCS:
 Four Big Ten teams appear in the latest Bowl Championship Series (BCS) standings, with three teams moving up in the poll and Minnesota making its first appearance since the 2008 season. Ohio State held steady at No. 3 in the BCS rankings, the Buckeyes’ high-est placement since ending the 2007 campaign at No. 1 overall. Michigan State rose three spots to No. 13 in the BCS poll, the Spartans’ highest ranking since being slotted at No. 13 on Nov. 27, 2011. Wisconsin also climbed three slots to No. 19 in the BCS standings, the Badgers’ first top-20 rating since ending the 2011 season at No. 10 overall. Minnesota moved into the BCS poll at No. 25, the Gophers first appearance since being ranked No. 17 on Oct. 26, 2008.
Division Mchups:
 Saturday features a full slate
of conference matchups, which includes four intra-division contests. In the Leaders Division, Purdue welcomes Illinois and Ohio State takes on Indiana, while Iowa hosts Michigan and Northwestern entertains Michigan State in Legends Division games. As part of divisional play, the Big Ten has instituted a tiebreaker to determine the Big Ten Football Championship Game participants, if nec-essary. After head-to-head matchups, the next tie-breaker is records within the division, which makes winning divisional games an important part
of the Big Ten title chase. See Page 11 of this
release for the full tiebreaker.
Hyde Tide:
 Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde had a career day against Illinois on Saturday, rushing for 246 yards and combining for five touchdowns in the Buckeye win. Hyde rushed for
four touchdowns and was on the receiving end
of another to become the first conference player to score five touchdowns in a game since Illinois’ Mikel Leshoure achieved the feat on Nov. 6, 2010. Meanwhile, his 246 rushing yards are the
most in the conference this season.
Running Seson:
The month of November has been highlighted by superb rushing performances as six of the season’s top eight single-game efforts have come in the last three weeks. Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde ran for a Big Ten-best 246 yards and Wisconsin’s James White finished with 205 yards last Saturday, two of the five 200-yard efforts by conference performers this season. In addition, Wisconsin rushed for a conference-high 554 yards against Indiana last Saturday, which ranks eighth in Big Ten single-game history. Indiana’s Tevin Coleman (215) and Bill Belton (201) also surpassed the 200-yard marker in November games, while Minnesota’s David Cobb and Ohio State’s Braxton Miller rushed for 188 and 184 yards, respectively, to rank among the conference’s top eight single-game efforts of 2013.
Trophy Time:
Two more annual trophy games will be contested this week as Wisconsin and Minnesota battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe, while Illinois and Purdue compete for the Purdue Cannon. The nation’s longest-running series is renewed Saturday as the Badgers and Gophers battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe, with Wisconsin holding a 39-23-3 advantage with the keepsake on the line. After a 1948 Gopher victory, the Wisconsin lettermen’s group presented Minnesota with the axe which has been award-
ed to the winner of each game since. The
Boilermakers hold a 32-27-2 advantage in the series for the Cannon, which began in 1943. A group of Purdue students brought the Cannon to the game in 1905, but it did not reappear at the annual contest until 1943. The Cannon was last fired in 2001, and has since been replaced with a replica trophy.
Thnks o he Fns:
 For the ninth consecutive year and the 11th time overall, the Big Ten sur
-passed the five-million mark in total attendance
among all games. After welcoming better than
350,000 fans to five contests last Saturday, the conference has seen more than 5.2 million patrons attend its games this year. In 74 games
this season, Big Ten stadiums are welcoming an
average of 70,615 fans per game, which is on pace to rank sixth in conference annals.
