Michigan State, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are all on the rise. Louisville had to take the fall of the week. Notre Dame is moving back towards the top. Bye Bye Michigan and Bye Bye Iowa. Actually, for the Wolverines it's the first time they're not ranked in the top 25 since 1998 (the winningest football program in the nation).
The BIG 10 is a real mess this year. Next week should provide some clarity: Michigan State hosts Michigan and Minnesota travels to State College to take on Joe Pa's Nittany Lions. Both of these teams can't be for real, so who is the pretender and who might be a contender in the BIG 10 this year?
I'm also eyeing that Notre Dame / Purdue match-up in West Lafayette. But the game of the week might be in Tuscaloosa as the Tide host the Gators. Gotta love those conference games. Bring on Week 5. Page 1 or BUST!
