The regular season is over in the Big Ten, but intrigue remains at the top. Michigan State and Iowa will face off in Indianapolis on Saturday to decide the conference title, but in this space, we aren’t shackled to the status quo with regard to evaluating teams, and you will see that below.

Elsewhere in the league, Ohio State absolutely decimated Michigan on the road, in what was the most impressive win by any team in the conference this season. Northwestern and Wisconsin also picked up nice wins on the final Saturday of the regular season, while Penn State slipped in a big way with a 39-point (!) loss to Michigan State.

Full slates of college football are gone until September, but the Big Ten season is still very much alive. Here are this week’s rankings. Stay B1G, everyone.
