Michigan State's Kirk Cousins

Seth Meyers at Penn State vs Northwestern Game

Every week during the football season, Brent Yarina posts his latest Big Ten Power Rankings. Week 8 featured one of the most exciting finishes in Big Ten history, as No. 16 Michigan State used a last-second Hail Mary to beat No. 6 Wisconsin. 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. Watch our sideline interview with NU grad and SNL product Seth Meyers now and see the rankings in this post.

Michigan State Stuns Wisconsin, 37-31

Michigan State Keith Nichol

Wisconsin at Michigan State - Football Highlights

(AP) Keith Nichol caught a 44-yard Hail Mary on the game’s final play for a tiebreaking touchdown, giving No. 15 Michigan State a stunning 37-31 win over No. 4 Wisconsin on Saturday night. With the game tied and 4 seconds left, Kirk Cousins rolled out to his right and threw one last pass. The ball went into the end zone but caromed off a Michigan State receiver back to Nichol, who caught it just outside the end zone and struggled for the goal line, fighting two Wisconsin defenders. The former backup quarterback was initially ruled short of the end zone, but officials overturned the call after a review, giving the Spartans (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) the win and knocking the Badgers (6-1, 2-1) from the ranks of the unbeaten.
