No off weeks. No non-conference games. Just all 14 Big Ten teams playing each other, the way the football Gods intended… well, the football Gods never would have put 14 teams in the Big Ten, but you get the point.

For the fourth straight year, the Fighting Illini football team will honor Harold "Red" Grange, the Galloping Ghost, by wearing special "Gray Ghost" alternate uniforms for Homecoming when the Wisconsin Badgers come to Memorial Stadium Saturday for a Big Ten West showdown (11 am CT on BTN).

Nebraska returns to action following a bye week, as it travels to West Lafayette, Ind., to take on the Purdue Boilermakers in a Big Ten West division matchup. The game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. CT (7:30 p.m. local) from Purdue's Ross-Ade Stadium. Television coverage will be provided by BTN, with radio coverage on the IMG Husker Sports Network.

It was a strange week in the Big Ten. Low scoring games, a bizarre upset, kickers as MVPs, and a beat down of epic proportions in primetime.

For sixth-year coach Tim Miles, the biggest focus for the offseason is shoring up the Huskers 3-point efforts. Last season, NU ranked 300th or worse in 3-pointers made, 3-point shooting and 3-point shooting defense last season. The Huskers' 3-point woes and a pair of significant injuries limited the Huskers to a 12-19 campaign last year.
