Only a week to go in Field Hockey and W Soccer. Two weeks for Soccer. 

In Soccer Indiana is in the lead, but still has to play second place MSU. Barring an unlikely upset the Hoosiers will either win the RS Big Ten Title outright or split it with MSU, depending on the outcome of that game. 

In W Soccer the Nittany Lionesses have a three "point" cushion that appears fairly safe, with two games to go. 

In Field Hockey Michigan and Maryland are tied for the lead. The Lady Terps won their H-H matchup.

The Nebraska cross country team will host the Big Ten Championships on Sunday, October 28 at the Mahoney Golf Course. The women’s 6K race will be ran at 10:45 a.m. and the men’s 8K race will begin at 11:45 a.m.

This will be the first time Nebraska has hosted the Big Ten Championships since joining the conference in 2011. It will also be the first time that the Mahoney Golf Course has served as a championship site for cross country. Mahoney has only hosted one meet previously, the Greeno/Dirksen Invitational on September 15 of this year.



The Big Ten Championships will be televised live on BTN Plus (available on the BTN2Go digital platform and through the FOX Sports app) and will air on BTN on a tape-delayed basis at 7 p.m. (CT) on Monday, October 29. Live results can also be found by following this link.

Ick.  Tie and an OT loss to close really torpedoed our spot.  Maryland as a QF draw is no fun at all.

Kinxed them.  After a 9-1-2 start, that I believe had them up to #5 in the nation, they slogged to a 1-3-2 finish

Lincoln - Nebraska's Vanessa Bouvet was honored as the Big Ten Women's Golfer of the Week on Wednesday, Nov. 7, the first conference award of her young career and the first award for the Huskers in 2018-19.

Bouvet (pronounced BOO-vay) captured the award by tying for runner-up honors at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational in Kapolei, Hawaii, Oct. 31. The freshman from Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, fired a two-under-par 70 in the only round of the rain-shortened tournament, trailing the tournament champion Hannah Alberto from Sam Houston State by just one stroke.

Committee gave a lot of love to Indiana (#2 overall seed) and Maryland (#11 overall seed), but not so much for Michigan and Michigan State (both unseeded, UM with what would be a 7 seed in the basketball seeding format, MSU with the equivalent of an 8 seed).  Wisconsin was left out entirely though.

It's as expected, as I see it.  Michigan State and Michigan are solid teams, but the schedules aren't strong enough to expect a seeding without at least a regular season or tournament title.  Indiana and Maryland, on the other hand, play monster schedules that led to excellent RPIs, and they were rewarded for it.

I feel bad for Wisconsin, but #47 RPI isn't even close.  After the season they had last year, I'd have thought they'd have signed up a few marquee opponents to make sure they get in, but they didn't...

Super exciting for her. Alas, her recruiting visit this fall was the weekend of the Badger debacle. Sigh.

Indiana beats Air Force, Maryland upsets #6 Duke, MSU upsets #13 Georgetown.

Big Ten accounting for 3/8 of the Elite 8, and MSU gets fellow unseeded James Madison.  The two of them each knocked out 2 of the 4 seeded teams in their region.
