The gist for the B1G:

It was just a few short weeks ago when everyone was wonder what was wrong with the Big Ten after it suffered loss after loss after loss after loss in the first month of the season. Michigan State currently has one win – Nebraska – over a team that’s going to end up going to a bowl game. However, its lone loss came to No. 4 Oregon, so, in theory, it’s probably around right at No. 8, but it should probably be around No. 10. Nebraska has one decent win over Miami, who isn’t ranked in the top 25. Meanwhile, No. 14 Ohio State still owns the second-worst loss by anyone in the top 25 – No. 17 Utah’s loss to Washington State still tops the list – with the gaffe to Virginia Tech looking worse and worse. 

So what does it all mean? 

How many non-conference wins do Big Ten teams have this year over teams currently ranked in the top 25? Zero, going 0-7. The SEC, by comparison, is 4-1. Of the seven non-conference losses among the CFP Top 25, the SEC has four of the wins (Auburn over Kansas State, Alabama over West Virginia, LSU over Wisconsin, Georgia over Clemson), the ACC two (Florida State over Notre Dame, Virginia Tech over Ohio State), Pac-12 1 (Oregon over Michigan State).

Michigan State (8) and Nebraska (13) are probably too high, for now, and Ohio State is definitely too high at 14 considering it’s the only top 25 team with a non-conference loss to someone out of the top 25. There’s no reason to rank Wisconsin at 25– the Badgers’ loss to Northwestern is awful, and the best win is against Maryland.
