College football writer — and AP Top 25 voter — BOB ASMUSSEN breaks down the league’s 14 teams after Week 3:

RK., TEAM REC. (PREVIOUS RK.)

1. Ohio State 3-0 (3)

My bad for not having Bucks No. 1 all season.

Beating your bitter rival moves you up the list.

3. Wisconsin 2-0 (2)

Badgers rested up for showdown with Michigan.

4. Penn State 3-0 (6)

James Franklin and Co. taking the week off.

5. Michigan 2-0 (5)

Team Harbaugh needs to improve in a hurry.

6. Maryland 2-1 (1)

Spot in Top 25 gone after loss to Temple.

7. Minnesota 3-0 (9)

Proves adage it is better to be lucky than good.

8. Nebraska 2-1 (13)

C-U welcomes Scott Frost and pals Saturday.

9. Northwestern 1-1 (12)

Visit from angry Spartans may be unfriendly.

10. Illinois 2-1 (8)

Last victory against Nebraska came in 2015.

11. Indiana 2-1 (10)

Hoosiers figure to enjoy hosting weak UConn.

12. Purdue 1-2  (11)

Perfect time for Boilers to have an open week.

13. Rutgers 1-1 (14)

Next win will come in October against Liberty.

14. Michigan State 2-1 (7)

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. Is that difficult?
