MotSaG B1G Power Poll Week 11

So glad this weekend is over as there was very little movement going on since there wasn’t any key games that happened.

My anti Mark May list:

1. The Ohio State University (8-1,5-0) The Buckeyes made a statement Saturday in East Lansing and took a giant step forward as a young hungry team. Now the target is back on them and they need to finish this out.
Last Week: #2
Next Game: @Minnesota

2. Michigan State (7-2,4-1) Sparty just lost out on the chance to get a possible playoff spot and in order to get to Indy need Buckeyes to lose two of their final three games, guess Dantonio should’t have basically guaranteed a victory over Ohio State.
Last Week: #1
Next Game: @Maryland

3. Nebraska (8-1,4-1) The Cornhuskers are hoping to have a healthy Adullah against a surging Badger team. They bye was at the perfect time for them going to be a big game for the West leaders.
Last Week: #3
Next Game: @Wisconsin

4. Wisconsin (7-2,4-1) Badger QB Stave was looking good against Purdue but honestly the Boilermakers had a lot of key injuries in their secondary plus the Badgers have a possible Heisman candidate in RB Melvin Gordon to rely on.
Last Week: #4
Next Game: Nebraska

5. Minnesota (7-2,4-1) The same Gopher team that lost to Illinois a couple of weeks ago destroyed Iowa Saturday. They have a big match-up hosting the Buckeyes this Saturday trying to stay in the West race.
Last Week: #7
Next Week: Ohio State

6. Maryland ((6-3,3-2) Don’t know if a bye week is going to help the Terps play a angry Sparty team that will be visiting this Saturday. Maryland might not have the firepower to hang with the Spartans.
Last Week: #6
Next Week: Michigan State

7. Iowa (6-3,3-2) You just don’t know what Hawkeye team will show up this week and that was evident when they were thrashed by Minnesota Saturday, now out of the West picture they can try to play the role of spoilers.
Last Week: #5
Next Game: @Illinois

8. Penn State (5-4,2-4) The Nittany Lions have a top defense but an abysmal offense. They are currently one win away from being bowl eligible and will probably accomplish that but honestly don’t deserve with the terrible offensive offense we have to watch.
Last Week: 10
Next Week: Temple

9. Rutgers (5-4,1-4) The Scarlet Knights coming off a bye look to win their second B1G game and become bowl eligible and that can happen with a win against the hapless Hoosiers this Saturday.
Last Week: 8
Next Game: Indiana

10. Michigan (5-5,3-3) The Wolverines made it to .500 break put the bubbly. If it weren’t for the bad play calling from Pat Fitzgerald and the terrible execution of the 2 point conversion the maize and blue really don’t have much to cheer about.
Last Week: #11
Next Game: Bye

11. Northwestern (3-6,2-4) The Wildcats continue to show how to blow wins against Michigan and found another way to do it in a different fashion.
Last Week: #9
Next Game: @Notre Dame

12. Purdue (3-7,1-5) Purdue has officially been eliminated from bowl eligibility, the injuries were to much for them to overcome. They have become a better team than last season and are still playing with tons of heart.
Last Week: #12
Next Game: Bye

13. Illinois (4-5,1-4) Tim Beckman and company are trying to get this team to become bowl eligible and try to save his job.
Last Week: #13
Next Game: Iowa

14. Indiana (3-6,05) The Hoosiers are in bad shape with their QB spot and it has made a for a long year
Last Week: #14
Next Game: @Rutgers

Always love hearing your feedback, don’t forget you can email me at with any questions.


  1. Minnesota will be a solid match-up for the Buckeyes, but I don’t see them being more than a road bump (in a series of decreasingly smaller bumps) on the way to the B1G CG. But I’m glad they’ve played well and their dismantling of Iowa had to have some Hawkeye fans tearing their hair out realizing they’re never getting rid of Ferentz.
