The Big Ten went 8-2, including wins by undefeated Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin, in the final full week of nonconference play Saturday. With Week 4 behind us, let's take a quick look around the Big Ten: Illinois is off to its best start in 60 years; Indiana must recover from a rough loss, Iowa feels it's getting better; Michigan hopes this perfect start yields better results, and Michigan State turned to a hot running back.
Also, Minnesota's Jerry Kill suffered another seizure; Nebraska faces an uphill battle in Madison; Northwestern's rivalry with Illinois is heating up; Ohio State is ready for Big Ten play; Penn State's latest win was a costly one; Purdue doesn't have great luck against ND following the bye; and Wisconsin's Nick Toon has NFL aspirations.
