College Football Power Rankings: State of the Big Ten Teams After Week 3

There has been a whirlwind of emotions going through Big Ten Country during this third week of the college football season. 

It started on Saturday with Michigan's surprisingly close game against the University of Massachusetts.

And as the clock was nearing midnight, it ended with a fake field goal in overtime that led the Michigan State Spartans over Notre Dame.

However, before all of the rankings were set and the ink was still drying on another fantastic week of college football, we are all reminded that this is just a game.

At around 12:30 last night, Michigan State's head coach Mark Dantonio suffered a heart attack and underwent a successful surgery that placed a stent in a blocked blood vessel.

This should serve as a reminder that even though most of us live and breathe our team colors, there are much bigger things in life than wins and losses.

And especially in the Big Ten, the rivalries are some of the fiercest in the nation. But no matter if we don the green and white or maize and blue, we are all keeping Coach Dantonio in our prayers.
