Big Ten schedule, week 6.

For the first time this season, every game on the Big Ten schedule is a conference game (although not a completely full slate; Minnesota and Iowa are off). IU's

Indiana (+14) v. Michigan State (noon, BTN): Lots written about this one elsewhere, of course. Hopefully the homecoming crowd will make its way in to the stadium, and hopefully the Hoosiers will do something to keep them there.

Penn State (-2) v. Northwestern (noon, ESPN): After a rough 0-2 start, the Nittany Lions have won three in a row are are slightly favored at home against the #20 Wildcats. Kain Colter won't have the element of surprise in his favor this week, but it will be interesting to see how NU fares against a better defense.

Wisconsin (-14) v. Illinois (3:30, ABC/ESPN2): Really? National network TV for this one? The Illini have looked really bad the last two weeks, having been stomped at home by Louisiana Tech and then Penn State. The Badgers opened up a big lead in Lincoln but couldn't hold it. Presumably the Badgers will roll.

Purdue v. Michigan (4:00, BTN): This one looks like the game of the week. I still don't have a great read on Purdue. They have wins over Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Michigan, and Marshall, and a last minute loss to Notre Dame. It seems to me that the Boilers may be getting a bit too much credit for that moral victory, but

Ohio State v. Nebraska (8:00, ABC): The most docile fan base in the Big Ten gets its first introduction to Columbus. Should be interesting. I suppose that for this season, it's in the best interest of the conference that Nebraska win, and it would make most of us happy.
