Big Ten football picks: Reality check coming for Illinois
College football's first weekend produced stunners like Houston over Oklahoma — and some silly oversimplifications.

Case startup RVS Rubber Solutions wins $50,000 Cleantech University Prize, heads to finals
Best friends Pavel Galchenko and Yohann Samarasinghe beat seven other student startups to win $50,000 Cleantech University Prize on Thursday night in Chicago. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- RVS Rubber Solutions, the Case Western Reserve University-based startup founded by sophomore Pavel Galchenko and his best friend, Yohann Samarasinghe, won the $50,000 Cleantech University Prize on Thursday night in Chicago. Samarasinghe and Galchenko beat out seven other campus-based student startups to win the Midwest regional competition of the U.S. Department of Energy's Cleantech competition. They and the other two top finishers will go on to the DoE National Cleantech UP finals this June at a still-to-be-determined location. All three teams will also be featured at Clean Energy Trust's annual CET Challenge investment program in May. Related Plain Dealer story: Case student startup competing for $50K prize in Clean Energy Challenge RVS Rubber Solutions developed a new way to separate and recycle the components of rubber tires that are currently disposed of as waste products. Using their technology, they say tire manufacturers will be able to convert this byproduct into a consistent, high-quality rubber material that will reduce their dependance on environmentally harmful methods of extracting virgin rubber. They say their methods are innovative, affordable, and environmentally friendly. Galchenko is a Case Western Reserve sophomore studying biochemistry and applied data science, and Samarasinghe is a sophomore studying nanoengineering and business at the University of California, San Diego. They are 2015 Aurora High School graduates and have been best friends since the fifth grade. "Our finalists came from schools all over the region including small universities like Milliken University, large public schools like University of Minnesota, and private schools like Northwestern University," Cleantech said in a written announcement. "The startups represented sectors within cleantech like advanced batteries, blockchain technology, bladeless drones, and industrial recycling." "The diverse cross-section of universities and technologies represented by the finalist teams demonstrate that the Midwest continues to lead on using science and innovation to solve some of the biggest challenges we face." The other teams are: -- Second place winner BluSolar from Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois. -- Third place winner Purpled from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. -- Abyss Incorporated, from the University of Minnesota. -- Minnealloy Magnetics, from the University of Minnesota. -- Mohyi Labs, from Michigan State University. -- Renw, from the University of Michigan. -- Wattcoin Labs, from the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
