B1G Power Rankings- Week 9

1.) Ohio State (8-0)- Beat Penn State 63-14. Dominance!!! That is the only word that needs to be used to describe this weeks game for the Buckeyes.

2.) Michigan State (7-1)- Beat Illinois 42-3. The Spartan defense is the real deal and shows up all the time. Can the offense keep going in a positive direction? This weeks game against their rival TTUN will go a long way to prove they belong at the top of this list.

3.) Wisconsin (5-2)- Wisconsin was on a BYE this past week.

4.) Minnesota (6-2)- Beat Nebraska 34-23. Jerry Kill still isn’t on the sideline yet but his team is playing inspired football to honor him. The Gophers flat out over powered the Cornhuskers. They punched them in the mouth and Nebraska went crying to their mommies instead of fighting back.

5.) Michigan (6-1)- TTUN was on a BYE this past week.

6.) Iowa (5-3)- Beat Northwestern 17-10. Iowa played Hawkeye football. They played great defense and just enough offense to win the game. Not sure still how good this team is.

7.) Nebraska (5-2)- Lost to Minnesota 34-23. What can you say about this team? The return of Taylor Martinez was less than successful. If not for some really bad teams in the B1G right now they would be even lower on this list.

8.) Penn State (4-3)- Lost to Ohio State 63-14. Penn State got throttled in every aspect of the game against the Buckeyes. The team will need to do some soul searching this week.

9.) Indiana (3-4)- Indiana was on a BYE this past week.

10.) Illinois (3-4)- Lost to Michigan State 42-3. The Illini took a step back this week with an embarrassing home loss to the Spartans. They will need to regroup and play better if they hope to salvage the season.

11.) Purdue (1-6)- Purdue was on a BYE last week.

12.) Northwestern (4-4)- Lost to Iowa 17-10. After starting the year 4-0 the Wildcats have limped along to a 4-4 record. With 4 straight losses the Wildcats are going to struggle to become bowl eligible at this point.
