Week 2 was an interesting one in the Big Ten, as some programs survived scares while others asserted their dominance. Overall, it was an entertaining slate of games.
Every week, ESPN updates its Big Ten rankings. There are a few interesting changes to this week’s edition, with one notable program dropping a few spots.
Here are ESPN’s full Big Ten power rankings for Week 3:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Michigan State
You can see all of the conference power rankings here.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Ohio State is No. 1, while Wisconsin has looked dominant through two weeks. Penn State, Iowa and Michigan State have handled their business.
Michigan at No. 6 is eye-opening. The Wolverines are going to have a lot to prove going forward after almost losing to Army.
We’ll learn some things about this league in the next few weeks. Is Wisconsin back among the elite? How good is Maryland really? Can Michigan step its game up? How about Nebraska?
Those are just some of the questions that need to be answered about the Big Ten.
