Separation is still not present in the latest Big 10 standings, as both the Legends and Leaders divisions feature two-way ties after the latest week of games.

In the Legends Division, the Iowa Hawkeyes and Michigan Wolverines are tied with identical conference records of 2-0 and overall records of 4-2. Following them are the Northwestern Wildcats at 2-1, and then the Nebraska at 1-1, Michigan State at 1-2 and Minnesota at 0-2.

The Leaders division features a pair of undefeated (and ineligible) teams atop the standings with Ohio State at 3-0 while Penn State sits at 2-0 following their bye week. After Wisconsin in third place at 2-1, the rest of the division features teams winless in conference play in Illinois, Indiana and Purdue.

The conference features only two teams with enough overall wins to be bow eligible in Northwestern and Ohio State, but the Buckeyes are still on probation.
