Unfortunately, I’m a little strapped for time. Hence, here are some super-quick explanations behind my picks.
Michigan State at Northwestern – If Northwestern can win this weekend, I’ll finally be sold on the Wildcats as a bowl-worthy team.
Iowa at Indiana – The real question will be whether the Hawkeyes’ piss-poor offense can take advantage of IU’s piss-poor defense. I’m not a betting man, but if I were, I wouldn’t bet on it happening.
Toledo at Michigan (1 point) – The Big Ten “Cripple Fight” of the week (not Iowa-Indiana). Michigan went back to their crappy new selves last week against the Illini but Toledo is just downright putrid.
Purdue at Ohio State – The “Joe Tiller Farewell Tour” continues to become a painful sight after they get shellacked in Columbus.
Minnesota at Illinois – Too much Juice in the Illini’s tank for the Caddyshack Gophers to handle.
Penn State at Wisconsin – I’ll try to get a quick preview up later tonight, but let’s just say I not only think PSU will win but will do so by double digits against a battered, bruised, and heartbroken group of Badgers. There will be no need for last-minute heroics this week in Madison.
