2013 Opponent Previews

Michigan State Football Preview

The defense will be good, of course. But unless someone steps up on offense to replace, if not improve on Le'Veon Bell's production, the Spartans could be even worse offensively.

Michigan Football Preview

Devin Gardner will lead the Michigan offense, but the supporting cast may still need players to emerge in 2013.

Northwestern Football Preview

The Wildcats were just a few plays away from going undefeated in 2012. But Nebraska probably was just a few plays away from blowing out Northwestern at that Husker home game in Evanston last season.

Minnesota Football Preview

Is Jerry Kill ready to turn Minnesota football around? That's the question Gopher fans are asking. With a slightly tougher schedule in 2013 (swapping Illinois and Purdue for Indiana and Penn St.), just getting back to bowl eligibility might be enough

Purdue Football Preview

Purdue hopes a change in coaches will also bring a change in results.

Previewing Illinois Football

A 2-10 season was an inauspicious debut for Tim Beckman. How much improvement can Illinois make in 2013? Will it be enough?

Previewing South Dakota State

South Dakota State made the 1-AA playoffs in 2012...but were unable to defeat woeful Kansas, thanks to five turnovers. And Toto... those Jackrabbits won't be in Kansas this season...

Previewing UCLA

The good news against UCLA is that, other than QB Brett Hundley, most of the UCLA's stars from last year's game are gone. RB Johnathan Franklin and DE Datone Jones? Off to Green Bay. Uncoverable TE Joseph Fauria? Now in Detroit.

Previewing Southern Miss

The Ellis Johnson experiment was a one-year disaster. If Todd Monken can find a quarterback, the Eagles might bounce back nicely in 2013.

2013 Wyoming Cowboy Football Preview

Led by quarterback Brett Smith, the offense is potent through the air, but the defense was porous last season. Can the defense improve enough to get the Cowboys back to a bowl? Or will it be up to the offense to outscore their opponents?
