Big Ten Haters Are Out In Full Force As The Conference's Record Vs. Power 5 Opponents Drops To 1-7

Troll Season has officially commenced on the Big Ten. 

The conference, which had a dreadful Week 2 with Michigan State falling to Oregon, Ohio State losing to Virginia Tech and Michigan getting killed by Notre Dame, has had a nearly equally poor Week 3.

Minnesota and Illinois are currently getting thrashed on the road to TCU and Washington, respectively. Earlier in the day, Maryland fell to West Virginia and Bowling Green notched the MAC's third win of the year against the Big Ten with a victory over Indiana. Iowa just suffered a last-second defeat to Iowa State. The conference's lone wins so far came from Ohio State against Kent State and Michigan vs. Miami (Ohio). 

Nebraska, Purdue, Penn State and Rutgers play later this evening, while the Spartans, Wisconsin and Northwestern had bye weeks. 

The conference now has a terrible record against Power 5 teams, and the Big Ten haters are out in full force.

Following tonight, the Big Ten will have, at the most, two undefeated teams: the winner of Penn State-Rutgers and Nebraska if it beats Fresno State.

Has the conference already eliminated itself from getting a team into the College Football Playoff?
