Three Big Ten teams remain undefeated.

While conference play has yet to begin, several Big Ten teams are positioning themselves as league favorites. The Ohio State Buckeyes are off to a 4-0 start and might be the best of the Leaders Division, though they are ineligible to play in the Big Ten championship game this season.

In the Legends Division, both Northwestern and Minnesota are off to 4-0 starts. Nebraska, Michigan and Michigan State have all stumbled early, though those three teams figure to decide the winner of the division when all is said and done.

Michigan opens up Big Ten play at Purdue and the Spartans begin with Ohio State.
