Despite a home loss to Oregon, Ohio State is still No. 10, while the Badgers, who were idle September 18, are No. 18.

Michigan and Michigan State are No. 19 and 20, respectively.

Led by sophomore Blake Corum and redshirt junior Hassan Haskins, the Wolverines are tops in the FBS in rushing, averaging 350.3 yards-per-game. Mel Tucker’s Spartans traveled to Miami Gardens in Week 3 and put a 21-point beating on Manny Diaz’ Hurricanes and appear to be well ahead of schedule in their program overhaul.

Each of these six ranked programs, plus the conference’s other eight, will take the field Saturday. With a full slate of games ahead, FanDuel has released their opening lines for Week 4 around the B1G.
