Through eight weeks, Ohio State is the only remaining unbeaten team in the conference. With that said, let’s take a look at the top plays and twitter reactions from this past weekend. Check out my updated roundup as I dig deep into

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 8

So much went on this Saturday, I don’t know where to start. How about with 110 points and 1,323 yards, which is what Indiana-Michigan combined for in a game that left many breathless. While the Wolverines may have answered some questions about their listless offense, questions about their defense may have been created in the process. Oh, well. What else did I learn? Check it out.

Power Rankings: Wildcats continue descent

With Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Michigan winning—and Nebraska being off—there were no changes to the top of my Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But there was plenty of shifting in the bottom half, highlighted (lowlighted?) by Northwestern’s continued descent. It wasn’t long ago that I had the Wildcats No. 2 in the Big Ten. Now?

For the most part, it was business as usual in the Big Ten on this Saturday. Ohio State reasserted its dominance with a 19th victory in a row.

Photo: Longtime IU coach & his Michigan blanket

BTN showed a great pregame moment between the Mallory family during the Indiana-Michigan game Saturday afternoon. Bill Mallory, the patriarch of the family and the former longtime Indiana coach (1984-1996), turned some heads with his blanket of choice at a wet Michigan Stadium. Yep, that’s a Michigan blanket! To be fair, he has a son on both coaching staffs (Doug, Indiana’s defensive coordinator; Curt, Michigan’s secondary coach) and the game was at the Big House.
