Monte Ball-RB-Wisconsin - The Badger running back rolled up 151 yards and 4 scores vs the vaunted Nebraska Blackshirt Defense. Ball has been a touchdown scoring machine for the Badgers, with 6 tds this year on the ground and 22 since the beginning of last season.
Game of the Week - Illinois 38 : Northwestern 35 - If you blinked in the 2nd half you missed an arena game break out at Memorial Stadium in Champaign. The Illini needed 21 points in the fourth quarter to move to 5-0/1-0 and are a surprise in the Big Ten and the nation. Northwestern couldn't contain AJ Jenkins as he rolled up 248 yards recieving and QB Nathan Scheelhouse had 391 yards passing a 4 tds. In return to Big Ten play, Wildcat QB Dan Persa tossed 4 tds.
Highlight of the Week - coming soon
Big Ten Takeaway - Where did the Fighting Zooker's come from? 5-0/1-0? Will the keep up with the Badgers? That will be hard, Wisconsin looks really good and like a top 4 team in the nation after they rolled up Nebraska. Michigan State got a nice win in the Horseshoe to stay a top the Legends Division with rival Michigan.
National Takeaway - Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma and Wisconsin are the class of FBS. I wish we could see these four teams playoff. Luckily we get to see the Tide and Tigers face off, but a four team playoff? Hello NCAA? Robert Griffin III has had one hell of a season so far, and has thrown one bad pass, an interception that lead to Kansas State to an upset of Baylor.
Heisman Ballot - Russell Wilson:Wisconsin, Robert Griffin III:Baylor, LaMichael James:Oregon
