Big Ten Recap: All the Trophies (and Steak House Discounts)

October 09, 2016

It’s week six and the Big Ten somehow keeps trucking along. The teams expected to win keep winning (looking at you, Michigan and Ohio State) and everyone else is just along for the ride. The East Division is definitely in for an interesting road to the championship game. As for the West? Well, we’ll see what happens. That’s the Big Ten right now for you, ladies and gentlemen.

So, how exactly did the Big Ten do in week six? We’ve got your recap, with highlights, links worth checking out and more. We’ve listed each school by record and then alphabetically (just like the Big Ten’s website). Also, rankings are the same as last week as new polls will not be released until Monday.

EAST


No. 4 Michigan,
 6-0

Defeated Rutgers 78-0

Ruth’s Chris Steak House apparently has this promotion where you receive a percentage off your meal based on Michigan’s final score. Well, they apparently didn’t plan on the Wolverines shutting out Rutgers 78-0.

However, someone did call and the steak house said the discount was capped at 50% off. Sigh. Too goo to be true, of course.

No. 2 Ohio State, 5-0

Defeated Indiana 38-17

The poor Cleveland Browns.


Penn State,
 4-2

Defeated Maryland 38-14

If you missed this game, you can get caught up with the Big Ten Network’s highlights.


Maryland,
 4-1

Lost to Penn State 38-14

Maryland may have lost but Lolo Harrison is still pretty darn good.


Indiana,
 3-2

Lost to Ohio State 38-17

Nebraska is going to have to be ready for Indiana. The Hoosiers played Ohio State pretty tough and things could get interesting when the Huskers come to town.


Michigan State,
 2-3

Lost to BYU 31-14

Oh, Michigan State. Things just keep getting worse and worse for the Spartans.


Rutgers,
 2-4

Lost to Michigan 78-0

If you didn’t watch this game, this tweet sums it up pretty well:

WEST


No. 12 Nebraska,
 5-0


BYE

Iowa, 4-2

Defeated Minnesota 14-7

The Big Ten really does have the best (and most) trophies.

Also, don’t try building a home to look like Kinnick Stadium. It apparently won’t go over well.

No. 11 Wisconsin, 4-1


BYE

Purdue, 3-2

Defeated Illinois 34-31

Curious what happened between Purdue and Illinois? Highlights below.


Northwestern,
 2-3

BYE

Minnesota, 3-2

Lost to Iowa 14-7

Going back to the Big Ten trophies thing… a pig. It’s a pig trophy. It’s great.


Illinois
1-4

Lost to Purdue 34-31

Let’s check in on Illinois football, shall we?

That appropriately sums it all up.
