Northwestern @ Indiana – Indiana’s tumble down the rabbit hole continues with a nice pasting by the Mighty Purple. 

Michigan State @ Michigan – Having a “little brother” myself (4 years younger) I can recall being at the doctor’s office for a routine checkup one time when I was 11 and the doctor was comparing my growth chart to my brother’s and predicted that someday, my brother would be taller than me.  Naturally, of course, I denied such a thing would ever happen but lo and behold, my brother currently stands about 2-3 inches taller than me.

Well guess what, Michigan:  “Little Brother” is in the midst of his growth spurt…

Illinois @ Wisconsin – Just what the doctor ordered for Wisky:  A home game against one of the most prolific offenses in the Big Ten.  Have fun with that.  Do the players even give a shit about their season anymore?  They sure look like they’ve given up to me…

Minnesota @ Purdue – Fighting Brewsters will get their unprecedented 7th win of the season against a Purdue team that also appears to be giving up on their season (at least, until the Indiana game).

Penn State @ Ohio State – As stated in my preview this week, this is the year to go against conventional wisdom and pick PSU to win in Columbus.
