After numerous Big Ten teams barely escaped being upset by non-conference underdogs last week, the ax dropped today with Michigan State falling to Central Michigan while Wisconsin and Northwestern barely got by Fresno State and Eastern Michigan at home.

Other Big Ten game results: Indiana barely skirted by Western Michigan 23-19, Penn State handled Syracuse 28-7, and Iowa beat Iowa State 35-3.

Outside of the exceedingly shitty Big Ten, Florida destroyed Troy 56-6, North Carolina slipped by UCONN 12-10, Wake Forest beat Stanford 24-17, and Pittsburgh beat Buffalo 54-27.

Again, it can't be stressed enough...nice conference Big Ten. Nice freakin' conference.
