The real fun finally begins tomorrow. This will be an interesting week with a few games that could go either way. Here are my amateur picks for the first week of the Big Ten season.
Michigan State @ Minnesota - Minnesota. Going with the Gophers, because the Barn is such a tough place to play
IU @ Iowa - IU.
Nebraska @ Ohio State - OSU. This is likely the most lopsided game of the first week.
Illinois @ Purdue - Illinois, not because I think the IIllini are good, but because I think Purdue is bad.
Michigan @ Northwestern - Michigan
Penn State @ Wisconsin - Wisconsin
Purdue @ Michigan State - Michigan State
Ohio State @ Illinois - OSU I guess, but this is basically a coin flip
Iowa @ Michigan - Michigan
Northwestern @ Minnesota - Minnesota
Wisconsin @ Nebraska - Nebraska.
