Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 10 featured a big-time upset, as Northwestern went into Memorial Stadium and upset previously streaking Nebraska. As for the power rankings, they are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply Brent’s thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands after its latest game and entering its next contest. Agree? Disagree?

The first Saturday in November was filled with a big surprise: Northwestern winning at Nebraska. That scrambled the Legends Division race, which may come down to a battle between Michigan State and Iowa. Here’s what else I learned on Saturday.

Throughout the football season, we post a highlight from each Big Ten team and let our fans rate the week’s best plays. We’re building an archive throughout the season, so feel free to backtrack and rank any play. Here’s how it works: Watch the plays and rate them, one being the lowest and 10 being the highest. Don’t forget to come back throughout the day Saturday, because we’ll post each team’s play immediately following its game.
Following the action every Saturday, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart breaks down what every game, every result means for the teams involved and the Big Ten itself. Week 10 featured a quartet of close games that were in doubt into the fourth quarter, and you can find Tom’s analysis in this post.
(AP) Braxton Miller ran for two scores including a record 81-yarder and Travis Howard ended Indiana’s last chance at tying it with an interception, leading Ohio State to a 34-20 victory on Saturday. The victory was the third in a row for the Buckeyes (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten), but it didn’t come easy. Three Buckeyes topped 100 yards rushing: Dan Herron with 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde with 105 on 15 and Miller with 105 on 14. It was the first time Ohio State had three runners go over 100 since Scottie Graham, Carlos Snow and Dante Lee did it in 1989 against Northwestern.
