Northwestern and Ohio State are the only undefeated teams left in the Big 10, after Minnesota's loss to Iowa over the weekend.

The Big Ten conference slate finally got underway on Saturday, and things look about as expected after one game, although there is an unlikely team atop the overall portion of the Legends division.

The Northwestern Wildcats, who are coming off of a 44-29 win over Indiana, are the only undefeated team in the Legends division, as they sit at 5-0. Meanwhile, the Ohio State Buckeyes are still unblemished after a nail-biting 17-16 victory over Michigan State. They are at the top of the Leaders division at 5-0.

Michigan and Purdue are the only two Big Ten teams yet to play a conference game, but they'll face each other on Saturday in West Lafayette, Ind.

Here are the full standings:
