Around the Big Ten – Week Three

The Big Ten had a banner day on Saturday; there was something for everyone. Our Nittany Lions pitched a shut out, games were won on blocked kicks and fake kicks, and a Big Ten quarterback not named Pryor kept his Heisman campaign rolling. If only the early hours of Sunday were as kind to coaches and teams alike.

Thankfully there’s only one more week for these.
