BSD Big Ten Power Rankings

New, 1 comment

Yay for backloaded schedules! The games are getting bigger and bigger as the season wears on. This week Purdue put the beatdown on Wisconsin for the second time this year. Indiana barely got by Illinois, and the Illini lost more than just the game. And of course Penn State couldn't capture any momentum from the Michigan State win. Let's look at the BSD Power Rankings.
