Big Ten shows it can put up the points, too
Ohio State scored 63 points last weekend, Michigan 44. After a paltry start, Penn State is pouring it on with 34 points or more in three of its last four games. Nebraska has yet to dip below the 30-point mark. As the season approaches its midway point, half of the teams in the conference so gritty the colors of its logo are black and blue are averaging 30 points or more.
Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald says that's just the way college football is going. With so many teams playing up-tempo or spread offenses, it's only a matter of time before they score.
