B1G Power Rankings – Week of 10/28

31 Oct

Throughout the 2013 season, I’ll be ranking the Big Ten schools 1-12.  Click here to see where your team was ranked last week.

Prepare to disagree…

  1. Ohio State.  With a four week stretch of Purdue, bye, Illinois, and Indiana, the biggest question Ohio State faces is what will their band do in their next performance?
  2. Michigan State.  When the Spartans offense plays half as good as their defense, they are the second best team in the league.
  3. Wisconsin.  I think it says something about the strength of the conference when on November 1, Wisconsin’s toughest remaining game is against BYU.
  4. Michigan.  A pivotal game for Legends supremacy (such that it is) this weekend in East Lansing.  If Michigan wants to contend, they must win.
  5. Iowa.  The Hawkeyes are not this high because I think they’re all that great.  It’s because I think everybody else isn’t as good.
  6. Nebraska.  The blueprint for beating Nebraska:  force them to throw, and attack the defense up the middle, after confusing them with motion, shifts, and odd formations.
  7. Minnesota.  I think there were some snickers when I say this team could go on a Coach Kill inspired run.  But tell me his presence didn’t have an impact on their win over Nebraska.
  8. Indiana.  If the Hoosiers want to make a bowl game, this week’s game against Minnesota is a must win.

    For Halloween, Indiana will dress up like a Christmas tree ornament.

  9. Penn State.  Did Bill O’Brien say something to piss off Urban Meyer?  Fortunately, PSU gets a break in the schedule to lick their wounds.
  10. Northwestern.  Their next three games are against the top three teams in the Legends.  Let’s see if the Wildcats can embrace going from “contender” to “spoiler”.
  11. Illinois.  The Illini went 0 for October, but have the potential to go 4-1 in November.  That said, they will be lucky to get to a bowl game.
  12. Purdue.  Some encouraging words for the Boilers as they get ready to host Ohio State:  No matter what happens, you won’t slip in the rankings!
