Here are my Big 10 Week 8 Picks:
Saturday, October 24
24 Northwestern at Nebraska 23
Northwestern has lost two straight games after a 5-0 start. Can they get back on track or will they continue to struggle?
27 Wisconsin at Illinois 6
The Wisconsin defense is one of the best in the nation and I expect them to be back in the top 25 after this week.
27 Penn State at Maryland 17
Christian Hackenberg has been a major disappointment this season, but the Nittany Lions defense is still talented enough to shut Maryland down.
21 Indiana at #7 Michigan State 45
The Spartans caught a major break last week to stay among the ranks of the unbeaten and they should stay in that position for at least another week.
37 #1 Ohio State at Rutgers 14
This is Ohio State’s third road game of the season and they almost lost the last one. I think the Scarlet Knights can keep the game close early, but the Buckeyes will flex their muscles late.
