There is a lot of parity in college football and is much more difficult to win all the games and a lot of teams that used to be gimmies are much better and could upset you on any given Saturday.
I think it is significant that there are No Big Ten Teams higher than NO. 10 and as for Ohio State, let's see. They beat the "bowl contending" Marshall team by 3 and they beat NC State by 8 before LOSING to Northwestern by 6. Northwestern? It also appears that they could very well lose their next two games to Wisconsin and Iowa before getting to play another patsie in Indiana.

Purdue beats Penn State by 7. Ohio State loses (again) to Wisconsin. Michigan beats Minnesota by returning an INT with 2 minutes to go. Michigan State and Illinois, well, who cares. Northwestern takes Indiana into 2 overtimes (does this mean Indiana is better than tOSU?)
The biggest teller is that the two undefeated Little 10 teams are ranked behind teams with one loss.
