Will Ohio State, which is No. 1 in the Big Ten in scoring offense (57.0 ppg) and No. 1 in scoring defense (9.3 ppg), lose a regular-season game? I asked some media members who cover the league.
Week 6 is highlighted by the battle for iconic Floyd of Rosedale between Iowa and Minnesota. There also is an interesting non-league game, with BYU playing at Michigan State. And Ohio State, Michigan and Maryland look to continue to roll.
Five weeks down, and Maryland, No. 4 Michigan, No. 12 Nebraska and No. 2 Ohio State remain perfect. Here is what I’m buying and selling post-Week 5.
Ohio State continues to impress, which is why it remains part of CBSSports.com’s Jerry Palm’s projected playoff field. But here is an alteration: Palm has 11 Big Ten teams in his bowl projections, one more than last week.
Ohio State is still king of the Big Ten. This much is clear following Week 5 in the Big Ten. Other things we know: Iowa and Michigan State are fading, while perfect Maryland is rising.

Penn State must win. Something's going on with Iowa's C.J. Beathard. Purdue has become ... intriguing. And Nebraska is flying low on the radar. BTN.com's Tom Dienhart rolls out 10 things he thinks he knows before Saturday's games.
BTN.com's Tom Dienhart asked five writers to name their early nominee for Big Ten Coach of the year. All five picked the same coach.
Consistency has been an issue for Purdue’s defense in recent years. But defensive tackle Jake Replogle has been a force during his entire tenure in West Lafayette, Indiana. The 6-5, 289-pound senior not only is the best defender for Purdue, he’s one of the top tackles in the Big Ten—if not the nation. He’s enjoying a strong start in his final season as he looks to get the program to its first bowl since 2012. So far, so good, as the Boilermakers are off to a 2-1 start as they trek to Maryland to begin Big Ten play this Saturday.
