Iowa finally got on the board this week.  Iowa won its first Big Ten game of the season with a thrilling 104-97 overtime win over Illinois.  It’s time to see where the Hawkeyes find itself this week in the Big Ten power rankings.

This week could have been seen as a make or break week for certain teams in the Big Ten.  Michigan had tests against Purdue and Michigan State this past week.  Ohio State continued its surprise run to start Big Ten play with two dominating performances.  Every week at Dear Old Gold we will give you power rankings of the Big Ten teams.

Before we unveil the power rankings this week, it should be noted that these rankings do not directly reflect conference standings.  With that, here are the Big Ten power rankings for this week.
