The first week of the season has come and gone, providing us with our first live glimpse of each B1G team. Well, except Nebraska, which had to cancel it’s game due to a nasty storm in the area.

It was a bit of a rough weekend in the B1G, as teams from top to bottom battled from wire-to-wire. Six of the 12 games played were decided by a single score over the weekend and a few “Beasts of the East” survived scares from non-Power-Five opponents. It made for a really entertaining first weekend.

But one thing was certain when Saturday night came to a close: Ohio State and Wisconsin, at least at the moment, are head and shoulders above the rest o the conference. Here’s where each B1G stands following Week 1:

14. Illinois, 1-0 (def. Kent State 31-24)

“Beard Day” at Memorial Stadium didn’t provide much of a spark for Illinois in the season opener. The Illini trailed Kent State 17-3 at the half before a 28-point second half pushed Lovie Smith and Co. to a 1-0 start. A.J. Bush is a weapon at quarterback, but this is still a pretty bad football team.

13. Rutgers, 1-0 (def. Texas State 35-7)

True freshman Artur Sitkowski struggled a bit in his first collegiate outing, throwing three interceptions against Texas State. But Rutgers’ defense held strong against an inferior Texas State squad. But the Scarlet Knights jump from a tune-up game to Ohio State next week. We may not know much about this team until later in the year.

12. Indiana, 1-0 (def. FIU 38-28)

Even without star running back Morgan Ellison on the field, the Indiana offense played pretty well, racking up 465 yards and scoring 38 points on the road against FIU. But the Hoosiers defense lost several starters from a season ago and it showed on Friday night. This could be a team that surrenders a lot of points in 2018.

11. Nebraska, 0-0 (game vs. Akron cancelled)

Scott Frost’s debut as the Nebraska head coach gets delayed due to weather. We’ll get our first look at the Huskers next Saturday against Colorado.

10. Purdue, 0-1 (lost to Northwestern 31-27)

Rondale Moore was phenomenal, but the Boilermakers have to make some serious adjustments moving forward. Purdue had three turnovers and nine penalties in the season-opening loss to Northwestern and the defense had trouble containing running back Jeremy Larkin. Jeff Brohm has some playmakers but the defense needs a little work.

9. Minnesota, 1-0 (def. New Mexico State 48-10)

Another true freshman, Zack Annexstad, wasn’t scared of the moment. He threw for 220 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in his first game as a Gopher. Offensive stars Rodney Smith and Tyler Johnson also shined in the win. It’s really tough to gauge Minnesota after beating New Mexico State, but P.J. Fleck’s team looked a lot better than a year ago.

8. Iowa, 1-0 (def. Northern Illinois 33-7)

Watching the first 30 minutes of the game, it looked like the Hawkeyes might be put on upset alert. But Iowa outscored Northern Illinois 30-7 in the second half to cruise to a 1-0 start. This is a solid team that can beat some quality B1G teams this fall. Kudos to Kirk Ferentz, who passed Hayden Fry to become the program’s all-time winningest coach.

7. Maryland, 1-0 (def. No. 23 Texas 34-29)

Is Maryland really the seventh-best team in the B1G? Probably not. Did they earn this spot in the power rankings? Absolutely. Beating No. 23 Texas is no small feat, especially considering the incredible turmoil the program has faced over the last four months. The Terrapins also found a new star in the Week 1 win, as Jeshaun Jones recorded a receiving, rushing and passing touchdown.

6. Northwestern, 1-0 (def. Purdue 31-27)

Everyone wondered if Northwestern could run the football without Justin Jackson on the field. With 143 yards and a pair of touchdowns, Jeremy Larkin quieted that debate. Clayton Thorson was on a pitch-count and the Wildcats weren’t very crisp in the victory. Still, Northwestern found a way to win. That’s just what Pat Fitzgerald’s team does.

5. Michigan, 0-1 (lost to No. 12 Notre Dame 24-17)

The most anticipated season opener of the Jim Harbaugh era ended in disappointment. The offense didn’t look much better with Shea Patterson under center. But playing a ranked opponent in the first weekend of the season is a tough task and Michigan is capable of bouncing back. That offense needs to get a lot better, though. Especially before games against other B1G East foes.

4. Penn State, 1-0 (def. Appalachian State 45-38 OT)

A scary start to the season for James Franklin and Co., but Trace McSorley and Miles Sanders came through in the clutch and Penn State opens the year 1-0. The offense had its hiccups but still put 45 points on the scoreboard. The real question is the Nittany Lions defense and whether it was put on cruise control in the second half or if it’s going to be an area of concern this fall.

3. Michigan State, 1-0 (def. Utah State 38-31)

Michigan State was another B1G team to narrowly escape with a win on opening weekend, knocking off Utah State by a touchdown. Brian Lewerke looked good (mostly) but the offensive line was an area of concern. And the defense struggled against an up-tempo style of play. But winning close has been a theme in the Mark Dantonio era. The Spartans are probably just fine.

2. Wisconsin, 1-0 (def. Western Kentucky 34-3)

You probably couldn’t have asked for a more well-scripted game out of Wisconsin. The Badgers threw for 257 yards and rushed for 234 more, led by Jonathan Taylor who racked up 145 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. The defense surrendered just 305 yards and forced two turnovers. Yes, Wisconsin looked rough early, but by the end, the Badgers were as good as advertised.

1. Ohio State, 1-0 (def. Oregon State 77-31)

No Urban Meyer, no J.T. Barrett, no problem for Ohio State, who dropped 77 points on a Power Five foe. Dwayne Haskins was brilliant, throwing for 313 yards and five touchdowns. Mike Weber added 186 yards and three scores on the ground. Altogether, Ohio State’s offense proved why it could be the best the program has had under Meyer. This team will score at will all year long.
