It’s crazy to think that we are already two weeks into the college football season and plenty of Big Ten teams have been showing off for the conference while a few others have struggled to gain any traction, in terms of wins, on the gridiron.

Big Ten football has gotten a bad rap over the past couple of years in non-conference play, for some odd reason, while everyone dubs the SEC ‘great’ despite a few top teams from the almighty conference falling to inferior opponents in week two while another took an FCS foe into overtime.

Michigan State and Ohio State are the two teams who have been giving the Big Ten a solid reputation this year while there are a handful of other teams looking to move into the No. 3 through No. 5 position in the conference standings.

It’s seeming more and more likely that the Big Ten will be a two-team race between the Buckeyes and Spartans, but, as we learned last year, anything can happen in college football — especially when conference play begins in a couple of weeks.

Well, it’s about that time in which we look at the week that was in the Big Ten and see who moved up and who went down in the third edition of Spartan Avenue‘s Big Ten power rankings.

Each week, our writers vote, and you decide if you agree. Do we have the same list you would have chosen, or are some teams ranked too high or too low? Let us know in the comment section below.
