Big Ten Football: Top 5 Performers From Week 6
Top 5 Performers From Week 6
Another week has passed and another weekend of great Big Ten football is wrapped up. This weekend saw some great football games as well as outstanding individual performances from a host of players across the conference.
There was quite a bit of offense across the conference yesterday, with top performers coming in the passing game, running game and receiving game.
These great performances provided some great football to watch all day long. Michigan State traveled on the road to Iowa and was able to get their first conference win in a well fought game by both teams.
Indiana shocked everyone when they put up 44 points on Penn State and routed the Nittany Lions at home, using their electric offense to win with ease.
Michigan faced off against Minnesota and maintained possession of the “Little Brown Jug,” and Nebraska hosted the Illinois Fighting Illini and won easily as well.
The game of the night was when the Ohio State Buckeyes traveled to Northwestern in a battle of top 25 and undefeated teams. It was a great game to watch, as both teams fought back and forth. It was filled with big plays and big momentum shifts, but the Buckeyes came out on top in the end.
Here’s a list of the top performers from Week 6 in the Big Ten.
