Big Ten scores: Michigan State upsets Wisconsin, Northwestern beats Iowa

Ohio State remained undefeated with a 35-23 victory over Penn State Saturday night. Here's a look at the rest of what happened around the Big Ten.

Michigan State upset No. 25 Wisconsin, 16-13, in overtime. Andrew Maxwell had two touchdown passes, including a 12-yard game-winner to Bennie Fowler.

Northwestern moved to 7-2 with a 28-17 victory over Iowa. Kain Colter and Venric Mark ran for a combined 328 yards, with Colter also scoring three rushing touchdowns.

Minnesota picked up its first Big Ten victory with a 44-28 win over Purdue, which remains winless in conference play. A.J. Barker had five catches for 135 yards and two touchdowns for the Golden Gophers.

Indiana beat Illinois 31-17, giving the Hoosiers what was probably their first Big Ten win since Antwaan Randle El was quarterback. Donovonn Young rushed for 124 yards for the Illini.

After Ohio State vs. Penn State, the best Big Ten matchup was No. 22 Michigan vs. Nebraska. That one is still going on, with the Cornhuskers leading 7-6 at halftime.
