Week 5 Football Power Rankings

Every week during the college football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 4 saw the Big Ten go 8-2, including wins from Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin, all of which will bring perfect records into the first week of conference play.

Revsine's Numbers: Illini Get Defensive
