BGSU FALCONS Last year Bowling Green was known nationally as having one of the top defenses, at least statistically, in the FBS. This year, the Falcons rank second nationally in one statistical category: Time of possession.
MICHIGAN WOLVERINES As media gathered around Jibreel Black and questioned the fact that his team is 4-0 entering the bye week against a relatively less-than-spectacular slate, Michigan's senior defensive tackle flipped the equation: He says the media downplays UM's opponents. Michigan's September opponents are a combined 5-10.
OHIO STATE BUCKEYES Four weeks of open-book pop quizzes give way to midterms when fourth-ranked OSU hosts No. 23 Wisconsin. So far, the Buckeyes have faced less scrutiny than a Russian election, outscoring a who's who of small potatoes 102-14 in the first quarter before turning on autocruise.
UT ROCKETS There are a couple misconceptions UT debunks about offensive norms. The spread does not have to be a blur to be effective. A quarterback without breakneck speed is not a klutz, and a running back with a meaty frame is not a snail. And play clocks that dwindle to less than 10 seconds are not attached to a bomb.
