After a shocking loss from the previous #1 team in our Big Ten rankings, the top of our list has changed a bit. There’s a new #1 (well, a tie for #1 though the tie breaker goes to the team that was ranked higher the previous week) and it’s fair to say there isn’t an analyst or fan outside of Iowa City that could have predicted the Hawkeyes would hold that spot going into the last week of the regular season.
As for Michigan, they actually did not make a move in this week’s rankings as MSU jumped them after their big in Columbus without Connor Cook.
Check out where UM and the rest of the conference landed in our latest staff Big Ten Power Rankings:
|1.||Iowa||Michigan State||Michigan State||Iowa||Iowa (+1)|
|2.||Michigan State||Iowa||Iowa||Michigan State||Michigan State (+2)|
|4.||Ohio State||Ohio State||Ohio State||Ohio State||Ohio State (-3)|
|7.||Penn State||Penn State||Penn State||Penn State||Penn State (-)|
