Dienhart: Week 10 Player Rankings

Dienhart: Week 10 Player Rankings

The Big Ten is loaded with many good running backs (see the stats). In fact, it may be the deepest position in the conference. So, it should be no surprise that Penn State’s Silas Redd has taken over the No. 1 spot in my weekly ranking of the Top 25 players in the Big Ten.

Redd has been on a roll of late, running for 129, 142, 131, 164 and 137 yards in his last five games to help push the Nittany Lions to the top of the Leaders Division and make Penn State the lone unbeaten team in conference action. See Tom’s complete list in this post.
