We’re 3 weeks into the season, which means B1G play is fast approaching. So what teams are doing well through non-conference action?

Imagine saying Michigan, Rutgers and Michigan State would lead the B1G in scoring offense a year ago. Or Maryland would lead the league in passing offense. Crazy, right?

On the other side, Greg Schiano continues his turnaround on D this year, putting his team toward the top of 3 major categories. Penn State’s defense is also looking sharp early on.

Here are the B1G’s statistical leaders after Week 3:
