Week 8 Football Power Rankings

Michigan State Defense

Iowa Fans Display Their "Cards"

Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 7 saw two of the Big Ten’s remaining perfect teams, Illinois and Michigan, fall from the ranks of the unbeaten. 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. See the rankings in this post and watch the well-orchestrated card stunt from Kinnick Stadium now.
