It was the first real week of mostly conference games, so we’re starting to see how teams measure up against one another. Where does Wisconsin land after its big win in Iowa City, how far does Maryland move? Who’s still the team to beat?

Here’s our Big Ten Power Rankings after week four. Get in on the action and let us know where you agree or disagree by contacting us on Twitter or Facebook.

14. Rutgers (13 last week)

Okay, we can’t do it anymore. Rutgers may have a win, but it has looked like a team that’s been defeated and deflated. With what’s happened the last two weeks, we finally moved the scarlet Knights to the bottom of the heap.

13. Illinois (14 last week)

Don’t get a big head Illini fans — you still gave up 63 points points and lost yet again. But … Rutgers has looked so bad that by default Illinois is moving on up.

12. Nebraska (12 last week)

Truth be known, we could have moved Nebraska into the last spot, and the bottom three in the league are a toss up in some regards this year. It might be a longer road than anyone thought for Scott Frost to get this thing back to respectability in Lincoln.

11. Purdue (11 last week)

The Boilermakers are second in the league in total offense, and finally were able to score the points to go along with it. This team is still dangerous even at 1-3. It’s still No. 11 because it’s ya know … 1-3.
