BIG TEN POWER POLL
1. Ohio State (7-0, 3-0): The nation’s longest winning streak has reached 19 consecutive games.
2. Wisconsin (5-2, 3-1): Only team besides Florida State to rank in Top 10 nationally in total offense and defense.
3. Michigan State (6-1, 3-0): Spartans seemed to find an offense, then scored one offensive touchdown against Purdue.
4. Nebraska (5-1, 2-0): Nation’s 10th-ranked scoring offense (42.7 points per game) heads to TCF Bank Stadium.
5. Penn State (4-2, 1-1): Ranks 11th in the Big Ten in rushing yards per game (157.2) but third in passing (283.7).
6. Michigan (6-1, 2-1): A well-timed bye week heading into a huge test Nov. 2 at Michigan State.
7. Iowa (4-3, 1-2): Hawkeyes need to follow showing at Ohio State by handling Northwestern at home.
8. Indiana (3-4, 1-2): Hoosiers average 342.7 passing yards per game, 55 yards more than any other Big Ten team.
9. Gophers (5-2, 1-2): Important win at Northwestern last week, but Indiana’s résumé still looks more impressive.
10. Northwestern (4-3, 0-3): A stunning drop. The Wildcats sat at No. 2 in this power poll just three weeks ago.
11. Illinois (3-3, 0-2): Sixteen consecutive Big Ten losses since the Illini defeated Indiana on Oct. 8, 2011.
12. Purdue (1-6, 1-2): Last two games vs. Illinois and Indiana will say a lot about Darrell Hazell’s first year as coach.
