Week eight of the Big Ten season has seen essentially one team (Wisconsin) a lock for the title game, while the Legends division still features Nebraska and Michigan up top. With that here is the Big Ten Review for week eight.
Wisconsin/Minnesota: The battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe once again went the Badgers way in a 38-13 win over the Gophers. James White and Montee Ball combined for 341 yards on the ground and five touchdowns as the Badgers held the lead from the outset and never looked back. Third string quarterback Phillip Nelson threw for two touchdowns in the loss for the Gophers. The Badgers are flying high recently with three straight wins and now are 6-2 on the season. Minnesota has fallen in their last three games and now stand at 4-3. Wisconsin will take on Michigan State while Minnesota hosts Purdue this weekend.

From the moment they first set foot on Ohio State's football team, quarterback Kenny Guiton and receiver Chris Fields have been in the background.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- From the moment they first joined Ohio State's football team, quarterback Kenny Guiton and receiver Chris Fields have been in the background.

According to coach Urban Meyer’s call in show (hat tip to 97.1 The Fan’s Lori Schmidt) , RB Jordan Hall reinjured his knee in practice yesterday. The injury is serious enough that Hall likely won’t play again this season.

Even as Luke Fickell took over the reins for Ohio State last season, the writing was on the wall that Fickell was there to serve as the buffer between the Tressel and Meyer eras.
