For the third time in as many weeks, there's a new No. 1 in my Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. This week, it's white-hot Purdue, winner of seven straight, taking the place of Michigan, now No. 2.
One week, that's how long Michigan's stint at No. 2 lasted in my latest Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. The Wolverines return to No. 1, thanks to wins over Minnesota and Indiana, coupled with Michigan State's loss at Purdue.

Tyler Trent wasn't introduced to the world long ago, but the Purdue superfan made quite the impact in a very short time. Trent, 20, who raised so much awareness for cancer and inspired so many with how he handled the disease, died Tuesday.
Chances are, Iowa fans will be talking about the 2019 Outback Bowl for a while. The Hawkeyes weren't expected to win, but they rallied a pair of times en route to carding a memorable 27-22 victory over No. 18 Mississippi State.
