A breakdown of the Big Ten West through two weeks of action
The Iowa Hawkeyes football program is once again making noise in the Big Ten.
When looking at the Big Ten, the West Division is usually looked past as Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan are all in the East Division. While those three programs have historically dominated the Big Ten, Wisconsin has won two of the three Big Ten Championship games, as well as Iowa nearly pulling off an upset last year before L.J. Scott scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to down the Hawkeyes.
Despite the Big Ten West being considered the little brother to the East, the Iowa Hawkeyes and Wisconsin Badgers are both ranked in the top-15 of both the AP Poll and Coaches Poll. In fact, the West Division has started the season 10-4 with a win over their lone top-25 opponent.
The Hawkeyes have gotten off to another fast start in 2016. They’ve blown out both of their opponents and extended their regular season winning streak to 14 games. The Hawkeyes will host North Dakota State this weekend before starting Big Ten play.
Here is a look at how every team in the Big Ten West stacks up through two weeks of play.
