Here are my Big 10 Week 9 Picks:
Saturday, October 30
17 Illinois at Penn State 27
The Nittany Lions defense will continue to carry the team to wins over inferior opponents.
34 Nebraska at Purdue 16
This is a must win for the Cornhuskers, a loss and they’re in danger of missing out on a bowl game.
10 Rutgers at Wisconsin 20
The Badgers have scored 29 or more points just once this season and I think that trend will continue, but overall their defense is strong enough to lead them to the victory.
20 Maryland at #10 Iowa 31
Iowa is looking more and more like a threat in the conference and I expect them to represent the West in the Big Ten Championship Game.
31 #15 Michigan at Minnesota 6
Michigan is coming off a heart wrenching loss to rival Michigan State and will look to bounce back against a team that has struggled offensively all year.
