After Week 6 of Big Ten football games, Indiana football stays put in its spot, even after being tied with #4 Michigan at halftime.
One Big Ten team has proven themselves and earned a spot in the top 4. Which team did it? Does any team fall out of the top 10? All of these questions are answered and more!

Big Ten Power Rankings after Week 6
Last game: 42-7 loss vs. Wisconsin
Next game: Oct. 22 @ Maryland
Yikes. That’s all I have to say about Northwestern football this season after starting 1-0 with a win against Nebraska to open the season and now five straight losses. The Wildcats got blown out by the Badgers in Week 6 thanks to Braelon Allen rushing for 135 yards and Graham Mertz throwing for nearly 300 yards and five touchdowns.
Yet again, we ask the question whether or not Northwestern will win another game this season. They will have a chance after a week off against a Maryland team that is hoping to rebound in Week 7 against the struggling Indiana Hoosiers.
