Dienhart: Week 11 Player Rankings

Iowa's Marcus Coker

Marvin McNutt: One-on-One

The Iowa running has surged to the top of my Big Ten player rankings. The star sophomore has rattled off four straight 100-yard, two-touchdown rushing games (121, 2 vs. Northwestern; 138, 2 vs. Indiana; 252, 2 vs. Minnesota; 132, 2 vs. Michigan).
