Big Ten Week 8 Coach Rankings

Coach of the Week

Jeff Brohm, Purdue
That was an absolute clinic. Brohm and defensive coordinator Nick Holt ripped apart Ohio State with a brilliant gameplan that stopped the Buckeye running game cold, and the offense put up 539 yards in a 49-20 win. Every move worked – the Boilermakers played like they were always four steps ahead of Urban Meyer’s team.
