Continued: Big Ten spring football:  Offseason of change welcomes two more

2013: 9-4, 6-2. Bowl game: Lost to South Ca­ro­li­na 34-24 in the Capital One Bowl.

Start­ers re­turn­ing: Offense 6, defense 3.

Top re­turn­ees: RB Mel­vin Gordon (1,609 rush­ing yards), CB So­journ Shelton (4 inter­cep­tions).

Spring news: Joel Stave’s in­jured right shoul­der has op­ened the door for dual-threat QB Tanner Mc­E­voy to take over as the start­er.

Sched­ule notes: The Badg­ers open with LSU (Aug. 30) in Houston and are host to de­fend­ing MAC cham­pi­on Bowl­ing Green (Sept. 20). Their cross­o­ver games — Mar­y­land and at Rut­gers — seem to be a gift from reconfigured Big Ten.

Football fe­ver tem­per­a­ture: 75. Gordon is back, but it’s un­clear how this team will re­place wide re­ceiv­er Jar­ed Abbrederis and sev­er­al key de­fen­sive play­ers, in­clud­ing Chris Bor­land and Beau Allen.

Big Ten East

IN­DI­AN­A

Coach: Kev­in Wil­son (fourth year).

2013: 5-7, 3-5.

Start­ers re­turn­ing: Offense 8, defense 10

Top re­turn­ees: RB Te­vin Coleman (958 rush­ing yards), WR Shane Wynn (11 TD re­cep­tions).

Spring news: Need­ing a de­fen­sive make­o­ver, the Hoo­siers switched to the 3-4 un­der new de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Brian Knorr.

Sched­ule notes: The Hoo­siers face Bowl­ing Green and Mis­sou­ri in non­con­fer­ence play and play I­o­wa and Pur­due from the Big Ten West.

Football fe­ver tem­per­a­ture: 50. In­di­an­a lost some top-flight re­ceiv­ers, in­clud­ing Cody Lat­i­mer, but this still will be a le­thal offense with quarterbacks Tre Ro­ber­son and Nate Sudfeld and a heal­thy Coleman. The Hoo­siers went 1-11 in Wil­son’s first year but in­creased their win total to four in 2012 and five in 2013.

MAR­Y­LAND

Coach: Randy Ed­sall (fourth year).

2013: 7-6, 3-5 ACC. Bowl game: Lost to Mar­shall 31-20 in the Mil­i­tar­y Bowl.
