Week 6 was quite the slate of games, wasn't it? We started off with Indiana putting the Michigan State season on the brink of collapse before the Spartans stormed back for the win, then we saw Michigan play its first good game of the year (or Purdue play its first horrible game, or maybe probably both) in a 44-13 demolition, then we topped it all off with Ohio State planting its flag atop the Big Ten and daring anyone to make a run at it with a final of 63-38. That was a hell of a game.
Suffice it to say, there's no Ohio State-Nebraska this week. Nothing even remotely equivalent. Good for your blood pressure, bad for shaking up the conference. Or so we think, anyway—next thing you know, Indiana's dropping 50 on Ohio State and Illinois picks off 10 straight Denard Robinson passes. Hey, it's college football. Weird stuff happens all the time.
At any rate, Penn State and Nebraska have the week off. Nice for Penn State as the team continues to work back from injuries during its four-game winning streak, while Nebraska can take the extra time to just sit in its room and think about what it did last week. Giving up 63 points? To another Big Ten team? Horrible, just horrible.
So let's take a look at this week's slate of five games.
