    By The Numbers | Michigan vs. Purdue in the Big Ten Championship Game

    By The Numbers | Michigan vs. Purdue in the Big Ten Championship Game

    With the Big Ten Championship set for Saturday night, the Purdue Boilermakers come into the game with very few believers across the country. The No. 2 Michigan Wolverines look as strong as ever after beating up Ohio State for the second straight season, and Purdue enters as the first unranked team to play in the Big Ten Title Game. However, some of the numbers suggest the Boilermakers have what it takes to play spoiler once again. The numbers Purdue puts up in the red zone on offense and on third down on defense, and the Wolverines haven't dominated the turnover battle in the same way it has dominated just about everything else. If Purdue can win the key plays and the turnover battle, Nate Dickinson believes the Boilermakers have a chance.
    Later in the show, Nate explores the possibilities if Purdue pulls off the upset Saturday. Would you put one-loss Michigan or Ohio State into the playoff? Could Alabama skip both Big Ten teams and hold the conference out of the Playoff altogether? Nate looks at all the possibilities on Locked On Big 10 -- part of the Locked On Podcast Network.

    The College Football Playoff Committee Finally Got It All Right

    The College Football Playoff Committee Finally Got It All Right

    The College Football Playoff Committee released the second-to-last rankings of the year Tuesday and finally got it right. It certainly took them all long enough.
    While the Top 4 teams in the rankings have been obvious for much of the season, the Big Ten hasn't gotten the same respect or recognition across the Top 25 rankings from both the AP and the College Football Playoff Committee releases. Now, the Ohio State Buckeyes rightfully sit above other two-loss teams in the latest rankings and the Penn State Nittany Lions moved all the way up to No. 8. After the final look at the Committee's thinking before it gives us the four playoff teams, Nate Dickinson reviews the rankings on Locked On Big 10.
    In other news, the Purdue Boilermakers prepare to face the Michigan Wolverines in this weekend's Big Ten Championship Game. The Spoilermakers come into the matchup as big underdogs, but that's just what Jeff Brohm and the Purdue roster are used to. With everything on the line in Indianapolis and the biggest game for Purdue of the season coming up, Nate takes you through the things that the unranked Boilermakers need to do to get the win.

    An Apology to All the Michigan Fans

    An Apology to All the Michigan Fans

    For the second straight season, the Michigan Wolverines listened to a full season of doubters only to prove them wrong at the end of the day. Michigan took it to the Ohio State Buckeyes for the second straight season, and Nate Dickinson gives an apology to all the fans who had to listen to the hate all season on Locked On Big 10. The Ohio State team came in as the favorites and the higher-ranked team on their home field, but Michigan took a three-touchdown win out of Columbus and the Big Ten East as well. Now, Ohio State waits to see what happens around the country and Michigan gets ready for a Big Ten Championship Game against Purdue. Nate goes over everything from The Game on Locked On Big 10.
    Later, Nate takes a look at the newest Big Ten coaches in the conference. Nebraska paid for Matt Rhule fresh off a failed stint in the NFL, while the Wisconsin Badgers surprised us all by hiring former Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell. After the moves from over the weekend, Nate looks at the future of the Big Ten West with some new faces around the region. Finally, the AP Polls are giving the Big Ten basketball teams the respect they deserve after a hot start. All you need to know from the conference on Locked On Big 10 -- part of the Locked On Podcast Network.

Should be called Locked On Ohio State with a smidge of BIG TEN EAST coverage

You guys are great and entertaining and all but from the 15 episodes I’ve listened to it’s always “we don’t want to spend too much time on “<OSU; or MU, MSU, or some other east team>” then spend half the pod cast talking about them. It really seems like you barely brush the west. When Iowa trounced Indiana y’all named half a dozen players on the Indiana squad then didn’t mention any Iowa players, even though they had a national player of the week. Great information on OSU and the East, though I guess.

Tough Listen

Nate’s hard to listen to, essentially locked on buckeyes with quick blurbs about teams that play them each week. I would skip.

Tizzy Bz ,

Lazy East Bias

I’m really impressed with the Locked On network overall, but the B1G coverage should be better. The host is pretty decent, but why always the spaz from MSU and the dork from Indiana?! Keep hearing around, lots of better talent out there!
