D1A Rankings Top 20 Week 4

Warning shots fired across the bow, as #4 Kutztown dismantles a very good 6th ranked Davenport team 45-15 at home. The Golden Bears are no joke. Next weekend’s test against #5 Penn St. will leave no doubts as to who’s the beast of the east.

Speaking of shots fired, how ‘bout them Hoosier. 12th ranked Indiana, led by the hard charging efforts of “Mr. Everything” Sam Zivot, cruised past Big 10 favorites and now 13th ranked Wisconsin 24-6. Indiana’s rise means Wisconsin fall and sets up a potential Big 10 Championship Game against the ever improving, and unbeaten #14 Wolverines of Ann Arbor Michigan. The Wolverine’s Joel Conzelmann continues to keep ticking over the scoreboard adding a cool 21 points to his team’s 41-20 drubbing of Illinois. #17 Ohio State watches their stock rise by comfortably beating Minnesota 35-19 on the road. So who’s the best team in the Big 10? Indiana? Michigan? Who’s your money on?

Oklahoma finally makes their top 20 debut, quietly dominating the ARC 7s series and opening up a can of whoop on the Fighting Irish in South Bend.
