The B1G Power Rankings are out and - WOW - there's some new faces in the Top Five...
5. Maryland Terrapins: The Might Turtles are looking (relatively) good! At 5-2 overall and 2-1 in the
|WR Stefon Diggs, MAR|
4. Minnesota Golden Gophers: They lead the Western Division at 6-1, 3-0, and boast Defensive Player of the Week Cedric Thompson & Special Teams Player of the Week Ryan Santoso as belonging to them. Hitting crucial field goals (52 yarder!) and making interceptions that seal a victory are definitely a recipe for success. And frankly, they have no real challenges on the schedule until they face Ohio State on 11/15.
|RB Ameer Abdullah, NEB|
right behind Minnesota. It's that one conference loss that hurts them. Ameer Abdullah is still the King, rushing for yet another 100-yard game and is on pace to see over 1,000 yards this season.
2. Ohio State Buckeyes: you know it's crazy but each game we score 50+ points in make me even more pissed off about that loss to Va-Tech. I know, I need to get over it, but still... JT Barrett looking better and better each week. A few tough games on the horizon but they may overtake Sparty yet!
No Surprise Here...
1. Michigan State Spartans: preseason favorites, still looking good. They've got inner-state rival Michigan this weekend so I'm predicting they'll improve to 7-1, 4-0. Head Coach Mark Dantonio seems to think he works for OSU and is trying to create a huge rivalry out of this game. Yes, they've won 5 of the last 6 meetings, but as we all know, kicking someone's butt every single year does not really make it a rivalry.... Then again, the whole world is UM's rival this season and it's still sad.
