Big Ten Awards - Week 6

Team of the Week : Nebraska - The Huskers got down big and early to the Buckeyes in their first home Big Ten contest and then on the legs of Rex Burkhead stormed back and got their first Big Ten Conference win.  Early on it looked like the new kids on the block would move to 0-2 but when Bauserman came in at QB for Ohio State, the Huskers went rolling, outscoring OSU 28-7 in the second half.  The Huskers don't look as dominant as we thought they would coming in, but still at 1-1 have a chance at Indy.

Helmet Sticker - Denard Robinson - Qb - Michigan : The Wolverine QB threw for 337 yards and 2 scores (also 2 picks) but also added 117 on the ground with 2 running scores.  Coach Hoke isn't completely abandoning the Rich Rod philosophy as he knows what he has in D-Rob and he is letting him do what he can.

AJ Jenkins - WR - Illinois : The Illinois wide out is playing like a WR possessed.  Moss and Megatron like.  This week the Illini wide out had 6 receptions for 182 yards and 2 more scores.  He's becoming the most feared and talented wide out in the Big Ten.

Game of the Week - Nebraska 34 - Ohio State 27 - The game was a tale of two halves.  The first half it was looking like the Huskers would go 0-2 in the Big Ten and Ohio State was going to shock the conference.  Then the 2nd half was all Huskers saying "Not so fast my friends".  The Huskers avoided a 2 game hole avoiding the loss 34-27.

Big Ten Takeaway - Michigan and Illinois are the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the conference.  Michigan isn't back but they are getting breaks and making the most of it.  Last time Michigan was 6-0?  They finished the season in the Rose Bowl.  Illinois is looking like a Jan 1 bowl bound and will give Wisconsin the biggest run for their money at the Leaders Division.

NCAA Takeaway - They need to get a playoff in this year!  One of the SEC teams will lose and so will one of  Big XII teams but then there's Wisconsin, Boise, Clemson and Stanford out there.  Will everyone unbeaten, no but the cream at the top are really good.
