Big Ten Power Football: Week 5 Power Rankings

2 of 14

13. Rutgers

Week 5 result – 58-0 loss to Ohio State

Well, Rutgers took an impressive loss to Iowa and turned it into absolutely nothing. Getting shut out by Ohio State isn’t much of a surprise to anyone outside the top 25 in college football. A 58 point shut out, however, is something that stands out.

This back and forth Scarlet Knights team is on the verge of finishing .500, which in hindsight isn’t a terrible season for Rutgers. The chances of them actually having an impact on the Big Ten or making a bowl game are all but gone, though.

Right now, this season is a loss. The Rutgers shouldn’t expect much more excitement to happen in 2016.
