Big Ten Power Rankings Post Week Two


Each week, the staff at Buckeye Wire submit their picks from one to fourteen in the conference. We tally them up and give you a weekly snapshot of what we feel the pecking order is collectively. Here’s where things stand after week three.

Week two was one of redemption for Michigan and Penn State, but others fell on the sword and will need to pick themselves back up to keep goals front and center.

We move on with our Big Ten Power Rankings after week two. Get in on the action and let us know where you agree or disagree by contacting us on Twitter or Facebook.

14. Illinois (14 last week)

The Illini were able to take care of business against Western Illinois, but nobody on our staff is yet convinced things have turned around a bit in Champaign. Beat USF and the minds will start to move that way.

13. Rutgers (13 last week)

It sure feels like progress is being made in Piscataway, but the Scarlet Knights got bludgeoned once again by Ohio State. Are the Buckeyes that good, or is Rutgers that bad? We’ll soon find out.

12. Nebraska (10 last week)

It looked for all the world that the ‘Huskers were going to give Scott Frost his first win at Nebraska but there were just too many mental mistakes. Freshman QB Adrian Martinez looked great at times, but making a bowl in year one would be an achievement at this point with what’s in front of the Cornhuskers.

11. Purdue (8 last week)

Jeff Brohm’s sophomore year in West Lafayette hasn’t gotten off to a good start. Losing to Eastern Michigan to start the year 0-2 puts the program behind the eight-ball when it comes to trying to go bowling. The Boilers will get a chance to get things right against Missouri this week.
