It’s Sunday, and that means it’s time to take a look at the best tweet from Week 1 action. The inaugural title goes to new Penn State assistant Herb Hand, who tweeted a Vine video of Sam Ficken’s game-winning field goal. The video was great, but it was the text “Winner winner…Ficken dinner,” that got our attention. Winner winner…Ficken dinner @sficken1 https://t.co/kIYS4UhbXr — Herb Hand (@CoachHand) August 31, 2014

After Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller went down with a season-ending injury, the biggest question around the Big Ten became: Who is the top quarterback? Big Ten fans got some answers on Saturday, as we saw several quarterback compile outstanding performances. Here are my Big Ten quarterback rankings from Week 1. 1. Connor Cook, Michigan State. Cook only played one half, but it sure was a special one. The reigning MVP of the Big Ten title game and Rose Bowl hit 12-of-13 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns in the Spartans’ 45-7 victory over Jacksonville State. More impressive: Cook
The Big Ten went 9-2 on Saturday with plenty of outstanding individual performances. Check out this week's top Big Ten players.
