Power Rankings: Surging Spartans move on up

If you somehow had any doubts prior to Saturday about who was the best team in the Big Ten, Ohio State surely cleared those up with its dominating effort vs. Penn State. Iowa and Minnesota were big risers. But Saturday wasn’t so good for Nebraska and Penn State. Here are my post-Week Nine Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. [ MORE: Enter the Buffalo Wild Wings Trip to the Football Championship Sweepstakes ] POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State (8-0, 4-0). It was pure domination for the Buckeyes vs. Penn State. I’m guessing Ohio State wanted to send a message to

Best of Week 9: Can PSU pull off another upset?

Another light, yet exciting week ahead, with four teams off–Indiana, Michigan, Purdue and Wisconsin. Still, this Saturday has a marquee, prime-time game to hang its hat on with Penn State playing at Ohio State. The loser of the Northwestern at Iowa game may be hard-pressed to become bowl-eligible. Nebraska is locked and loaded for a big second half of the season, which begins at Minnesota. NU must win if it wants to win the Legends, right? How lopsided has the Nebraska-Minnesota series been? Check it out: Nebraska has beaten the Golden Gophers 16 times in a row. The last Gophers’

Big Ten's top WR: Abbrederis? Gallon? Robinson?

Allen Robinson entered the 2013 season as the Big Ten’s undisputed top wide receiver. The Nittany Lion star earned the honor following his breakout 2012 campaign, in which he led the conference in receptions (77), receiving yards (1,013) and touchdowns (11). Through six games, Robinson is on pace for even better numbers. But is he the Big Ten’s best receiver? I asked our resident quarterback, Stanley Jackson, for his answer.

Bowl Projections: Two Big Ten teams in BCS bowls?

Ohio State is still on the outside looking in when it comes to playing in the BCS title game (BCS Standings), but plenty of time remains. Don’t fret, Brutus. The Big Ten has a decent shot to get two teams into BCS bowls, with Wisconsin a good bet to finish 10-2 and claim a sweet postseason slot. In fact, I have the Badgers slotted to be an at-large BCS bowl team in this week’s rankings.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 8

So much went on this Saturday, I don’t know where to start. How about with 110 points and 1,323 yards, which is what Indiana-Michigan combined for in a game that left many breathless. While the Wolverines may have answered some questions about their listless offense, questions about their defense may have been created in the process. Oh, well. What else did I learn? Check it out.

Power Rankings: Wildcats continue descent

With Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Michigan winning—and Nebraska being off—there were no changes to the top of my Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But there was plenty of shifting in the bottom half, highlighted (lowlighted?) by Northwestern’s continued descent. It wasn’t long ago that I had the Wildcats No. 2 in the Big Ten. Now? Well, have a look for yourself. [ MORE: Enter the Buffalo Wild Wings Trip to the Football Championship Sweepstakes ] POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State (7-0, 3-0).

Tom's Take: My Week 8 grades, stocks & more

For the most part, it was business as usual in the Big Ten on this Saturday. Ohio State reasserted its dominance with a 19th victory in a row. Wisconsin dominated Illinois and Michigan State was methodical vs. Purdue, while Michigan beat Indiana in one of the wildest games of the season. Northwestern? I don’t know what to make of the Wildcats. Here is a wrap of Week 8.
