Week 4 of the college football season was somewhat of a mixed bag for the Big Ten. The team’s that were favored to win took care of business. The teams that weren’t favored, came away empty handed. As a whole, the Big Ten went 7-2 in non-conference matchups on Saturday, and Wisconsin cruised to an easy win over Purdue in the lone Big Ten game of the day. Through four weeks, Ohio State, Michigan Minnesota and Northwestern are the only remaining unbeaten teams in the conference. With that said, let’s go back and take a peak at the top plays and twitter reactions from this past weekend.
It was a busy Saturday in the Big Ten, with 10 games taking place. Michigan continues to live dangerously, no team runs like Wisconsin, Nebraska still loves Bo and the Michigan State offense still has a ways to go. I learned a lot. Take a look.
Week Four in the Big Ten is over. And, it was a mixed bag in what was the last big full-blown Saturday of non-conference action. The headliner game was Michigan State at Notre Dame. The Spartans came up short, as the Fighting Irish won despite notching a scant 221 yards in a 17-13 victory.
It’s time to get powered up with my Sunday Big Ten rankings. This Saturday didn’t provide any dramatic victories or stunning losses, so my ranking didn’t shift dramatically. But, Wisconsin did make a move, as did Minnesota, Penn State and Iowa, while Michigan State sinks the most.
Kenny Guiton continues to be America’s top super sub. Today, he was at his best yet. The senior captain hit 24-of-34 passes for 215 yards with a school single-game record six touchdown passes—all of which came in the first half—in a 76-0 romp over Florida A&M.
