Power Rankings: There's a new No. 2 team this week

Ohio State remains on top with another impressive victory, but I finally am moving Michigan State past Wisconsin and into the No. 2 spot in my power rankings. Yes, that win at Nebraska was that vital. Sorry, Wisconsin. Without a doubt, there seems to be a big drop between the top three teams and everyone else.

How did we do? Week 12 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 13, it’s time to revisit how the team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 12 Big Ten predictions. Stephen Bardo went 5-0 and everyone else went 4-1, missing the Michigan-Northwestern game, meaning Bardo and Sean Merriman are tied atop the standings. Big Ten fans are one game off the pace.

Tom's Take: My Week 12 honors, grades & stocks

It’s time to put a wrap on an interesting Week 12 that will be remembered for its blowouts, a wild overtime thriller and a signature victory by Michigan State that clinched at least a share of the Legends Division crown for the Spartans. With that said, here’s a wrap on Week 12 in the Big Ten.

Did you see Michigan's wild last-second FG?

It isn’t often that a field goal can be called wild, but that’s just what Michigan’s last-second kick was at the end of regulation Saturday. Trailing 9-6 and with the clock inching close to zero following a Jeremy Gallon reception, the Wolverines rushed their field goal unit onto the field and somehow managed to get the snap off. The kick, Brendan Gibbons nailed it to send the game to overtime. Watch the crazy sequence in this post. Our favorite part of the play: Holder Drew Dileo sliding into position. Michigan went on to win 27-19 in triple overtime. INSTANT HIGHLIGHT:

Watch 'Tiebreaker' clip & see Twitter reaction

BTN Originals premiered Tiebreaker, the network’s first feature-length documentary, Saturday night. The 60-minute show painted an indelible portrait of college football’s most storied rivalry and examined the aftermath of the 1973 Ohio State-Michigan game that ended in a 10-10 tie. With both teams tied atop the standings, Big Ten Athletic Directors voted to send Ohio State to the Rose Bowl. Michigan’s Bo Schembechler called the decision “the lowest day of my athletic career.” Watch game footage and interviews with the key players from the 1973 game at BTNTIEBREAKER.COM and choose the team you think should have represented the Big Ten

Now it's your turn to vote on 'TIEBREAKER'

Forty years ago, a 10-10 tie between Ohio State and Michigan left the determination of which school would represent the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl up to the 10 school athletic directors. In the days when only one Big Ten team could play in a bowl game, that controversial vote changed college football forever. It’s now the topic of the BTN Originals documentary “TIEBREAKER,” which debuts at 7 p.m. ET Saturday. Now it’s your turn to voice your opinion and cast the vote. To commemorate the anniversary of that historic game, BTN is opening the tiebreaker vote to college
