It was another exciting weekend of action in the Big Ten, as the teams continue their non-conference play. We saw a couple of surprise results, including Iowa's loss to North Dakota State. Elsewhere, Michigan State took care of Notre Dame in primetime. The quarterback play wasn't as top notch as we've seen in the opening two weekends, but nonetheless, there were still some solid performances.

#5 Wilton Speight

The Michigan quarterback had a rough start to Saturday's game against Colorado. He looked shaky at the start and did not play well in the first half. However, he came back strong in the second half and helped his side to victory at the Big House.

He finished 16-for-30 with 229 yards passing, connecting with wide receiver Amara Darboh for his only touchdown pass of the game.

#4 Trace McSorley

McSorley had a solid day through the air for the Penn State Nittany Lions as they defeated Temple 34-27. The redshirt sophomore was 18-for-24 with 287 yards, which put him at an average of 12 yards per completion. He found Chris Godwin for a 52-yard pass touchdown pass and ran in a two-yard score himself.

#3 Tyler O'Connor

Michigan State had a massive performance from O'Connor in their 36-28 win over Notre Dame. The senior showed valuable leadership on the field in one of the teams biggest games this season. He never seemed rattled by the crowd or his emotions, which shows he may be just the man the Spartans need this season.

O'Connor finished 19-for-26 with 241 yards through the air. He had two touchdown passes and an interception as well.

#2 Tommy Armstrong Jr.

It was a big time performance from Armstrong Jr. in Nebraska's win over Oregon. Despite battling cramps in the second half, the senior was able to contribute what proved to be the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter.

He added another dimension throughout the day to the run game as he rushed for 95 yards on 16 carries. Through the air he was 17-for-33 with 200 yards and three touchdowns passes. In total he accounted for four of Nebraska's five touchdowns.

#1 J.T. Barrett

Ohio State's dual-threat quarterback has been on a roll in the opening three weekends of the season.

He had four touchdown passes against Oklahoma on Saturday night and was a constant threat on the ground as well. In total, he accounted for 216 yards of offense. The Heisman hopeful continues to impress the college Football world as he looks to lead the Buckeyes to a national title.
