On the first weekend of the Big Ten season, Ohio State asserted its dominance with a big win over Nebraska. Michigan made a statement with its road victory over Minnesota. However, not everything went as expected in the conference.
Penn State lost its season opener at Indiana 36-35 in overtime, causing the Nittany Lions to fall from No. 8 to No. 18 in the AP Top 25 poll. And things won't get easier for them this weekend, as they're set to host the No. 3 Buckeyes in a key early-season Big Ten clash.
That will be the only matchup between ranked teams in Week 9.
