Big Ten Power Ratings
If Wolverines beat Penn State this week, a Rose Bowl appearance might be their worst case scenario.
2) OHIO STATE
Was what happened in West Lafayette their now perennial brain fart, or something else?
3) PENN STATE
Still has a shot at a prestigious bowl if it wins out.
Nathan Stanley picked about the worst time to play his worst game of the season.
Who would've guessed after blowing a 21-3 lead to Akron the Wildcats would go into November controlling their own destiny in the Big Ten West?
6) MICHIGAN STATE

You can't have your 5th-year senior quarterback getting out-played by a guy making his first collegiate start if you're a championship team.
Badgers now have three losses with road games at Penn State and Purdue still on the schedule.
One win away from bowl eligibility.
Nothing to be gleaned from blowing out Bethune-Cookman.
Can equal last season's win total by beating Illinois this week.
Looked down at their jerseys, and realized they still say "Indiana" so it's time for hoops season.
Averaged over 7 yards/play on offense against Maryland, and still lost by 30 points.
It's almost over. Then the basketball beatdowns begin.
