ESPN's All-Big Ten Team | Toughest Positions To Pick

Someone not on this list: Raekwon McMillan. I expected the sophomore to break out this year, but he simply hasn't met those high expectations. If the game starts to click for him, though, and he stays on the trim side, he could turn into one of the greats. His physical abilities are tremendous.

Durkin Discusses His Stategy At Maryland, New Facilities

Peeking ahead to 2016, Durkin will also have time to get his players settled in to their new schemes - Maryland has early games set up against UCF, Howard, and Purdue, plus a bye.

Nassib is also one of three finalists for the Bednarik Award, given to the nation's best defender. The other two candidates for that one are Reggie Ragland of Alabama and Tyler Matakevich of Temple.

I'll just leave this here.

The 2016 season is about 300 years away, but if most of this holds, Wisconsin will be looking more athletic going forward, even with a couple big losses.

Tennessee Highlights

I haven't mentioned Northwestern's upcoming bowl with Tennessee, but since it's an intriguing matchup in its own right, here are some season highlights of the team Pat Fitzgerald has to beat. Also, for the whole rundown on bowl season, The Only Colors has you very well covered.
