Twitter: Your top tweets and plays from Week 5

Week 5 of the college football season is in the books, and while it wasn’t a jampacked Saturday in the Big Ten, it was certainly an exciting one. Ohio State edged out Wisconsin, 31-24, in a game that certainly lived up to the hype. Iowa found a way to grind out an impressive road win over Minnesota, while Illinois cruised to an easy 50-14 victory over Miami (Ohio). Purdue continues to struggle as the Boilermakers fell 55-24 to Northern Illinois. Through five weeks, Ohio State, Michigan and Northwestern are the only remaining unbeaten teams in the conference. With that said,

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 5

Quality over quantity was the theme Saturday in the Big Ten, which had just four games. The marquee matchup between Wisconsin and Ohio State lived up to its billing, as the Buckeyes reaffirmed that they are the best team in the conference. Iowa and Illinois also showed they mean business, as each program continues to surprise. Purdue? Well, it’s gonna be a long season in West Lafayette. See what I learned this Saturday. 1. Braxton Miller is A-OK. He essentially had missed the last three games recovering from a strained MCL in his left knee. Rusty? Out of synch? Off

Power Rankings: Surging Iowa shoots up list

With six schools off and just four games that featured no upsets, there was little movement in my weekly Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Iowa was the biggest winner, jumping three spots from No. 9 to No. 6. Conversely, Minnesota fell like a rock from No. 6 to No. 10. Here is my latest Power Poll.

Tom's Take: Week 5 honors, grades, top 10 & more

There were just four games this Saturday, but that doesn’t mean there was any lack of action. Ohio State showed that it means business, and Iowa’s methodical victory at Minnesota sent a message: The Hawkeyes are over the doldrums of a 4-8 2012 season. Here is my wrap up on Week 5 in the Big Ten. Biggest surprise: Iowa. The Hawkeyes dispatched Minnesota with relative ease, using dominating play in the trenches on both sides of the ball to smother the Golden Gophers in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale. This shocked me. I thought Minnesota not only would have

Analyzing the numbers: Iowa run game vs. Minnesota

Entering Saturday, Minnesota’s 13th-ranked rushing attack in the nation was expected to give the Gophers an edge vs. rival Iowa. But it was Iowa and its dominant ground game that powered the Hawkeyes past the Gophers 23-7. Iowa outgained Minnesota 246-30 on the ground and has now rushed for at least 200 yards in five consecutive games to start a season for the first time under head coach Kirk Ferentz (since 1999).
