B1G Power Rankings Week Three

  1. Iowa: Offense took SOME steps…have a great opportunity for more development this week in practice and then next week against a very beatable Colorado State team, who did beat Toledo, a top three MAC team.  Kent State is also a Top Three MAC team.  I still think Colorado State would lose to Kent State by two touchdowns.
  2. Penn State: Two wins against ranked teams, a much better defense and offense this year than last and the Nits are legit Big Ten East contenders
  3. Ohio State: Meh, OK.  Fought off a hangover against a solid Tulsa team, but their defense remains a question
  4. Wisconsin: Bye
  5. Michigan State: Very nice win at Miami, probably should have them higher.
  6. Michigan: They play Rutgers this weekend then travel to Madison in two weeks. We will know who they are then
  7. Minnesota: VERY impressive 30-0 win at Colorado, and Buffs didn’t crack 100 yards of offense
  8. Rutgers: Really not sure who they are yet, but they are better than pre-Schiano Rutgers
  9. Maryland: Very fortunate that Bret Bielema choked as a coach in this game
  10. Indiana: Hoosiers lose a close one to a Top Ten team.  Not the start they hoped for
  11. Nebraska: Can you have moral victories in year four of a coaching change?
  12. Purdue: They are paying Jeff Brohm a LOT of money to be a .500 program
  13. Illinois: See above.  Bret choked
  14. Northwestern: Wow.  Did not see this coming.  I never, ever have a good read on Northwestern
