One week is in the books. And it was a successful one for the Big Ten, which was handed just two non-conference defeats (Rutgers vs. No. 8 Washington & Purdue vs. No. 16 Louisville) and had two big wins by Michigan and Maryland. Here is a look at the Best of Week 1.
Nothing changes near the top of BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart's Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But Maryland is upwardly mobile after that eye-popping win at No. 23 Texas.
Week 1 came and went with one upset, as Maryland toppled No. 23 Texas, 51-41, in Austin, Texas. See how BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and Big Ten fans fared on their Week 1 game predictions below.
In the end, all the secretiveness about the Michigan roster and who would be the quarterback didn’t matter. The Wolverines were supposed to take care of suspended-laden Florida. And, they did--with ease. Jim Harbaugh probably could have given the Gators his playbook and it wouldn't have mattered.
Quinn Nordin became the first Michigan kicker to make two 50-yard field goals in the same game, one of them in a quick go-ahead spurt after halftime, and the 11th-ranked Wolverines won 33-17 Saturday to hand 17th-ranked Florida its first season-opening loss in nearly three decades.
