3. Iowa #13
4. Penn State
5. Purdue
6. Northwestern
7. Michigan State
8. Michigan
9. Illinois
10. Minnesota
11. Indiana

They have a ‘stock report’ icon by each team…OSU, Wisconsin and Iowa are ‘unchanged’. They have an ‘up’ icon by Penn State and Purdue.

I can see Purdue, but Penn State? They went 11-2 last year…I’d say that would be a ‘down’ icon. But hey, we are talking icons here, not anything of much importance.

They predict Ohio State to the BCS National Title game, Wisconsin to the Orange Bowl and Iowa to the Cap One Bowl against Arkansas from the SEC.
