BIG TEN. BIG NEWS.


Looking at the Legends Division: Michigan State has reached the halfway point of its Big Ten slate, standing atop the division standings with a 4-0 conference mark. Each of the Spartans remaining conference games will be intra-division showdowns, including matchups with Michigan and Nebraska, which are tied for second in the standings with 2-1 Big Ten records. The Wolverines visit Michigan State this weekend while Nebraska returns home to face Northwestern. Iowa and Minnesota are tied for fourth in the division standings, holding 2-2 conference marks and two games back of the Spartans. Leaders Division Breakdown: 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 conference, and three of the Buckeyes remaining four contests will be division contests.

BIG TEN MEDAL OF HONOR 100TH ANNIVERSARY SPOTLIGHT Michigan States Morten Andersen
Andersen, who won the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1982, was a first-team All-Big Ten selection at Michigan State and also garnered Academic All-Big Ten accolades as a senior in 1981, a year in which he recorded the Big Tens longest field goal with a 63-yarder. His success at Michigan State earned him a spot on the Walter Camp All-Century Team. Andersen was drafted in the fourth round of the 1982 NFL Draft and went on to become the NFLs all-time leading scorer with 2,544 points. In his NFL career that spanned from 1982 to 2007, Andersen was a three-time All-Pro, a seven-time Pro Bowler and a member of the NFLs 1980s and 1990s All-Decade teams.

Northwestern scored the gamewinning touchdown with just under three minutes to play in its first bowl appearance. With Cal carrying a 14-13 lead in the fourth quarter, halfback Ed Tunnicliff took Jan. 1, 1949 Wildcat a direct snap and sprinted 43 yards Northwestern 20 for a touchdown with 2:59 to play. Cals final drive was thwarted by a California 14 Loran Day interception, sealing the Northwestern win.

BIG TEN FOOTBALL WEEKLY RELEASE - WEEK 10

BIG TEN. BIG NEWS.


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 nationally ranked Nebraska last weekend to reach the landmark for the second straight season. Minnesota has been to 15 postseason contests in program history, having last appeared in the 2012 Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas. The Gophers join Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State as the Big Tens bowl-eligible programs. Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin each have five victories and could become eligible for postseason play with one more win. Where We Rank: Four Big Ten teams appeared among the top 25 in the latest Bowl Championship Series (BCS) standings, with Michigan State and Wisconsin making their first appearances this season. Ohio State improved to 8-0 overall and won its 20th straight game to hold steady at No. 4 in the BCS poll, while Michigan 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 on Saturday and were slotted at No. 24, their first appearance since Oct. 21, 2012. Division Matchups: Four conference contests this weekend will be division matchups, including two within each division. In the Legends Division, Michigan travels to face first-place Michigan State and Northwestern heads to Nebraska. In the Leaders Division, Purdue hosts division-leader Ohio State and Penn State welcomes Illinois. As part of divisional play, the Big Ten has instituted a tiebreaker to determine the Big Ten Football Championship Game participants, if necessary. After head-to-head matchups, the next tiebreaker 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. Forty is the New 30: With five teams ranked among the top 16 in scoring offense, and the conference as a whole second nationally at 33.46 points per game, Big Ten offenses are among some of the most prolific in the nation. With Ohio State and Michigan State both scoring more than 40 points last weekend, conference teams have combined to score 40 points or more 36 times this season, already surpassing last years total of 27 such instances. Seven conference teams 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 at least 40 points five times, Wisconsin and Indiana have done so four times and Illinois, Michigan State and Minnesota have three 40-point performances. Ohio State, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin are among the nations top 16 in scoring offense, each averaging 39.9 points or more per game this year. Efficient Cook: Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook now ranks among the conferences all-time single-game leaders in completion percentage with his effort against Illinois last Saturday. Cook completed 15 of 16 passes, a 93.8 completion percentage, for 208 yards and three touchdowns. His 93.8 percentage is seventh on the Big Tens single-game list and he joins Northwesterns Kain Colter as this years 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 Wisconsin and Michigan State welcomes Michigan. The Hawkeyes and Badgers first competed for the Heartland Trophy, a brass bull statue, in 2004, with Iowa holding a 4-3 edge in the series. Saturdays Michigan-Michigan State contest features the battle of the Paul Bunyan Trophy. It is the 61st time the teams will meet with the traveling 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 mark Michigan States acceptance into the Big Ten. Four-Million Strong: Thanks to the attendance figures following last weekends games across the conference, Big Ten stadiums have welcomed more than four million fans through the turnstiles this year. It is the 21st straight season the conference has crossed the four-million mark in total attendance and the 24th year overall. The all games average of 70,932 fans per contest would rank sixth on the conferences all-time chart, and the conference games only average of 73,675 is on pace to be the highest in Big Ten history.

Big Ten Football Awards


The Big Ten will continue to honor its past while recognizing its current standouts at the conclusion of the 2013 campaign. The Big Tens enhanced football awards program presents 18 individual trophies in addition to the Big Ten Championship trophy, bearing the names of one or two former standouts. The distinguished names on these football awards honor just a small sampling of the countless student-athletes and coaches who have contributed to the conferences rich and storied history. Seventeen of the honors will be awarded immediately following the regular season, including awards for the best quarterback, running back, receiver, tight end, offensive lineman, defensive lineman, linebacker, defensive back, kicker and punter. Each of these individual position awards features the names of two former student-athletes. The Big Ten will also continue to honor the conferences top coaches, offensive and defensive players and linemen and freshmen with end-of-year trophies. Big Ten coaches have the opportunity to claim two awards. Media voters will continue to select the Dave McClain Coach of the Year, which has been awarded since 1972, while coaches vote for the Hayes-Schembechler Coach of the Year award. The top offensive player will receive the Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year award, the best defensive player will be awarded the NagurskiWoodson Defensive Player of the Year award and the best first-year standout will receive the ThompsonRandle El Freshman of the Year award. The winner of the Big Ten Football Championship Game will receive the Amos Alonzo Stagg Championship Trophy, while the most outstanding player in the game will be awarded the Grange-Griffin Championship Game MVP award. The conference also created two postcollegiate awards - the Ford-Kinnick Leadership Award and the Dungy-Thompson Humanitarian Award. The full list of awards, along with a breakdown of the former standouts appearing in each awards name, appears to the right.

BIG TEN FOOTBALL DIVISIONAL TIEBREAKER


The Big Ten football championship will be decided by a game played between the two division champions. A team or teams that are not eligible to participate in a postseason football bowl game as a result of NCAA and/or Big Ten sanctions shall not be eligible to participate in the Big Ten football championship game. The winner of the Big Ten football championship game will represent the Conference in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) unless a conference team other than the champion is ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS poll. The following procedure will determine the representative from each division in the event of a tie: (a) If two teams are tied, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative (b) If three or more teams are tied, steps 1 through 7 will be followed until a determination is made. If only two teams remain tied after any step, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative. 1. The records of the three tied teams will be compared against each other 2. The records of the three tied teams will be compared within their division 3. The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (4, 5, and 6) 4. The records of the three teams will be compared against all common conference opponents; 5. The highest ranked team in the first Bowl Championship Series Poll following the completion of Big Ten regular season conference play shall be the representative in the Big Ten Championship Game, unless the two highest ranked tied teams are ranked within one spot of each other in the BCS poll. In this case, the head-to-head results of the top two ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the Big Ten Championship 6. The team with the best overall winning percentage [excluding exempted games] shall be the representative 7. The representative will be chosen by random draw. If one or both of the Big Ten division champions is ineligible to play in the Big Ten championship game, then the participant(s) in the Big Ten championship game shall be determined by the following procedure: a) If the ineligible team is tied for the division championship, then the team it tied with shall be the Big Ten championship game representative. b) If two or more teams are tied with an ineligible team for the division championship, then the ineligible team is removed and the remaining teams revert to the tie-break procedure. c) The division runner-up shall be the Big Ten championship game representative. d) If there is a division runner-up tie, then the tied teams shall revert to the tie-break procedure. If the championship game cannot be played (due to any reason beyond the control of the Big Ten Conference), the two division champions (using divisional tie-breakers as set forth above) shall be declared co-champions and the following procedure will be used to determine the Big Ten Conference representative to the Bowl Championship Series: a) Teams ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS poll will automatically be placed in the BCS championship game. b) If the two divisional representatives met previously in the season and neither is ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings, the team ranked highest in the final BCS standings shall be the representative to the BCS, unless the other team is ranked within five or fewer places of the higher ranked team. In this case, the head-to-head results of the two teams shall determine the Conferences BCS representative. c) If the two divisional representatives did not meet previously during the season, the team ranked highest in the BCS standings shall be the BCS representative. d) If the two teams are tied in the BCS standings, the team with the best overall Big Ten record shall be the BCS representative. e) If the two teams remain tied after d), the team with the best combined record of the tied teams against all common Big Ten opponents each team played that season shall be the BCS representative. f) If the two teams remain tied after e), the representative will be the team with the best overall winning percentage. g) If the two teams remain tied after f), the representative will be the team furthest removed from BCS participation. h) If the two teams remain tied after g), the representative shall be determined by a random draw.
