Taking a quick look at Big Ten East vs. Big Ten West matchups

It was nice to see Iowa ascend to No. 5 in the recent CFP poll. The committee finally realized that the Hawkeyes have a pretty good resume that has included a good home win vs. Pitt and road victories vs. ranked Wisconsin and Northwestern teams. Honestly, I think Iowa’s resume is better than Ohio State’s, which his No. 3 in the poll. *** Yes, Michigan State fell from the ranks of the unbeaten last week after losing at Nebraska.

On Saturday, the team threw its support behind campus protesters who didn’t like how the president was handling complaints about racism and other student-welfare issues.
