The non-conference season is over. Well, there is one more non-league game, as Charleston Southern plays at Indiana in October. Still, essentially, non-conference season is finished for Big Ten squads, and here's Tom Dienhart's best of the non-con season.

The Big Ten office released its Week 4 individual honors Monday, and Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, and his program record 358 total yards, highlight the recipients. See all of the honorees, plus watch select video highlights, inside.
Penn State continues to top BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart's Big Ten Power Rankings. Also noteworthy: Michigan, fresh off its win at Purdue, passes rival Ohio State for the No. 3 slot.

Before we turn our attention to Week 5, it's time to revisit how the BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and Big Ten fans did with their Week 4 Big Ten game predictions.
Morgan Ellison found Indiana's starting tailback spotlight; J-Shun Harris entered team record books; and the Hoosiers dominated from the start in a 52-17 victory over winless Georgia Southern on Saturday.
