What’s sad is Rutgers managed the same score against the Wolverines as Penn State.
2. Ohio State
I don’t like Ohio State, but man it felt good watching them smack Michigan State back down.
Ladies and gentlemen, your 4-loss Big Ten West champs!
4. Penn State
This year, perhaps more than most in recent history, feels like a giant case of the haves, and the have nots. Penn State - this year - is a have not, but they’re one of the better have nots out there. Just a weird year overall.
5. Michigan State
Get wrecked Sparty.
Purdue has assumed the mantle of chaos from Indiana this year.
Iowa didn’t have its destiny in its hands, but there was still an outside shot at the Big Ten West. And then they lose to Northwestern? I don’t get it.
If the Badgers weren’t injured everywhere, they’d be a better team. Not preseason top four, but a better team.
Don’t tell me Nebraska is going to get to 5-7 and back into a bowl bid.
I love that Indiana can regularly be relied on to mess with other team’s seasons.
So, in successive weeks, Minnesota lost by 24 to Illinois, then won by 31 over Purdue? Sure, why not.
Nebraska and Maryland may both finish 5-7 and back into bowl eligibility, but it will feel like two completely different seasons.
Similarly, Illinois can beat Minnesota by 24 one week, and then lose by 19 to Nebraska the next week.
Death, taxes, and Rutgers going winless in Big Ten play.
