IOWA CITY -- So, how about those Michigan Wolverines.

Somehow, Michigan found a way to beat Michigan State, staying unbeaten in Big Ten play until at least next Saturday, when it plays at Nebraska. Four unbeatens remain in the conference, with one to lose that tag tonight at Kinnick Stadium. They are Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Iowa.

Meanwhile, Ohio State improved to 4-0 in the Big Ten with its come-from-behind overtime win over Purdue. Penn State needs to win tonight to get to 3-0. The Nittany Lions host OSU next Saturday in the IneligiBowl.

If the Hawkeyes prevail, the Legends will look like this:

Iowa  3-0

Michigan  3-0

Nebraska  2-1

Northwestern  2-2

Michigan State  1-3

Minnesota  0-3

If Iowa loses? Well, then it loses.

But since this is filed before the kickoff in Kinnick, let's assume next Saturday's Iowa-Northwestern game will be of importance.

But for that to fully come true, Iowa needs to beat Penn State.  If it doesn't? Well, then it doesn't.
