Big Ten Briefing Ep. 3

The weekend is almost here and luckily for us we will have plenty of college basketball to watch Thursday night in order to makeup for the lack of football.

Last night there was one interesting game that took place in the Big Ten, the other between Minnesota and Illinois was a complete massacre in favor of Illinois.

Let’s start with the best basketball game from Wednesday.

No. 23 Iowa vs. Penn State:

It appears the Iowa Hawkeyes are for real this season. Entering the game as a one-point underdogs the Hawkeyes escaped Happy Valley with an impressive road win.

Penn State forward Lamar Stevens, the team’s leading scorer, was only held to eight points while shooting an ugly 4-18. Meanwhile Luka Garza shined for Iowa scoring 22 points and recording 12 rebounds en route to a double-double.

The most impressive effort of the night has to be Jordan Bohannon’s dagger to seal the game for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa improves to 15-3 overall and 4-3 in the conference.

Football Recruiting:

Ohio State offered high school teammates wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. and quarterback Kyle McCord.

However, the duo is also being sought by other Big Ten programs. Specifically Penn State wants to keep both Pennsylvania high school stars in their own state.

Meanwhile, Jalen Hurts will officially be transferring to Oklahoma.

This means Hurts will not be joining former Alabama offensive coordinator and current head coach Mike Locksley at the University of Maryland.

Finally, in some unexpected news Jim Harbaugh offered a scholarship to a 7th grade quarterback.

Campus:

Not a good look for Michigan State here.

It appears Michigan State University interim president John Engler submitted a letter of resignation for making inappropriate comments about the survivors of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse.

Engler was the interim president after Lou Anna Simon resigned due to the Larry Nassar scandal.

The board will likely name Engler’s replacement sometime Thursday.
