Week 9 of the college football season was filled with a little bit of everything. We had upsets, blowouts and plenty of top plays.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 9

What did I learn in Week Nine? Ohio State and Michigan State are really good—and may be headed for a showdown in Indianapolis. Minnesota is a feel-good story that keeps getting better. Iowa is alive and well. And Northwestern’s season is on the edge. It’s all right here, and more. 1. Ohio State and Michigan State may be on a collision course to meet in the Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis. These look like the top teams in their respective divisions.

Power Rankings: Surging Spartans move on up

Tom's Take: My Week 9 grades, stock report & more

With just four games, it was an abbreviated week of action in the Big Ten. But there was no shortage of excitement. A big revelation: Michigan State looks like the class of the Legends Division. Oh, and Ohio State sent a heck of a message by trouncing a Penn State team that was coming off a win vs. Michigan. Here is a wrap on Week Nine. Biggest surprise: No one saw Minnesota dumping No. 14 Nebraska. But the Golden Gophers pulled the big upset, taking a 34-23 win. Minnesota did nothing fancy, relying on their physical ground game to over

Dienhart: Minnesota 'thriving' sans its leader

This was a program-defining win for Minnesota under Jerry Kill’s watch. But really, it was much more than that. The Golden Gophers’ 34-23 upset victory over No. 24 Nebraska was a testament to the foundation that Kill has laid since arriving in the Twin Cities in 2011. It also embodied the toughness Kill possesses as a coach and in his fight to control his epilepsy. His players don’t want to let him down while he’s away dealing with his health issues. They want to make him proud. And, they did that today. It’s just too bad that Kill wasn’t on
