Week 4 Football Power Rankings

Every week during the college football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 3 saw the Big Ten go 9-3, including Illinois’ 17-14 victory over No. 18 Arizona State. As for the power rankings, they are not meant to mimic the Big Ten standings. What fun would that be? They aren’t scientific, either. They’re simply Brent’s thoughts on where each Big Ten team stands after its latest game and entering its next contest. Agree? Disagree? Tweet @BTNBrentYarina.

Southeast Missouri State at Purdue - Football Highlights

(AP) Robert Marve threw a touchdown pass and was nearly perfect in his return from a knee injury to help Purdue beat Southeast Missouri State 59-0 on Saturday. Marve had been out since tearing the ACL in his left knee early last season. He entered the game in the second quarter and completed 7 of 8 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. The Boilermakers (2-1) scored on all three of his possessions. Starter Caleb TerBush completed 14 of 17 passes for 143 yards. The Boilermakers rushed for 393 yards and had 627 yards of total offense, compared to 153 for Football Championship Subdivision member Southeast Missouri State (0-2).

Robbie Hummel on the Sidelines

A special guest visited BTN during our telecast of the Purdue-Southeast Missouri State game on Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium. It was Purdue basketball standout Robbie Hummel. Hummel, who is recovering from his second season-ending knee injury, stopped by to chat with BTN sideline reporter Lisa Byington. So, how’s the knee? “It’s been positive, I haven’t had any setbacks,” Hummel said. Saturday’s game had to make Hummel feel pretty good, too, as the Boilermakers thumped SEMO, 59-0.

Revsine's Numbers: Illini on the rise

I wouldn’t necessarily have thought this going into the season, but the game that excites me the most on the Big Ten slate this weekend is Illinois’ game with Arizona State. Obviously, Ohio State–Miami and Michigan State–Notre Dame are generating more national buzz.  But Gerry, Howard and I thought the Illini were a legitimate contender in the Leaders Division when we watched them in the pre-season  and this is our first opportunity to see if we’re right.
