Down goes Michigan! CHAOS. CHAOS EVERYWHERE. The day of upsets that was in college football left no team or conference safe and Iowa’s stunner over the Wolverines has created a major shakeup in the Big Ten and the playoff race.

2016 DSN Big Ten Football Power Rankings, Week 7

Last week I told Spartan fans it could always be worse. Then they gave up 54 points to Northwestern. See? It can always be worse! Unless you’re talking about the poor Badger’s ridiculous schedule.
