Big Ten Power Ratings
1) OHIO STATE
Overcame a 12-point deficit in the toughest of environments to establish itself as clearly the class of the conference.
2) PENN STATE
James Franklin, whatcha doin? Losing the Big Ten East Division title, that's what.
Still has tough road games at Michigan, Purdue and Penn State.
Michigan's toughest opponent this season has been the man in the mirror.
Has scored 20 points or less in eight of its last 12 games against power five conference foes.
Your guess is as good as mine which Terps team shows up each week.
7) MICHIGAN STATE
L.J. Scott hasn't played past two games, and still is the team's leading rusher with just 103 yards. And now leading receiver Cody White is out with a broken hand.
Don't look now, but Boilermakers are a win at awful Illinois away from getting back to .500 after that 0-3 start.
Hoosiers failed to cover as the biggest road favorite they've been since 1990.
Now 1-3, and still has games remaining with Sparty, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and Iowa.
Perhaps no team in the conference has been hit harder by injuries.
0-4 for the first time in school history. Ouch.
Will they win another game?
Props for covering the spread.
