4. Nebraska (5-1, 2-0): An easy schedule has helped the dust settle for Bo Pelini. Next game is at Minnesota, Oct. 26.

5. Michigan (5-1, 1-1): Turnover troubles disappeared against the Gophers, then re-appeared against Penn State.

6. Northwestern (4-2, 0-2): The Wildcats are reeling but have enough talent to run the table in the Legends Division.

7. Penn State (4-2, 1-1): Impressive how Bill O’Brien’s team bounced back from Indiana loss with the Michigan win.

8. Iowa (4-2, 1-1): Coming off a bye week, the Hawkeyes head to Ohio State as 17-point underdogs.

9. Indiana (3-3, 1-1): Dangerous (see Penn State game) but still inconsistent (see Michigan State game).

10. Illinois (3-2, 0-1): The Illini can reach a bowl by beating Indiana and Purdue and upsetting one other team.

11. Gophers (4-2, 0-2): Marcus Jones ranks second in the Big Ten in kick-return average with 30.8 yards per return.

12. Purdue (1-5, 0-2): First-year head coach Darrell Hazell has been asked if this team is already in 2014 mode.
