Props to BTB Gopher Nation over at The Daily Gopher for putting this all together for another year. Hey, wait a sec...they're in first place!?! Shenanigans!
Week 4 Games (MBN picks in bold):
• Illinois @ tOSU
We like tOSU in this one strictly because I think their defense will be able to contain Juice Williams. Illinois has had success at the toilet bowl over the years, but I just don't have the confidence to pick them in this one.
• Minnesota @ Northwestern
NU get the nod in this game. Minnesota comes off a huge emotional loss against Cal. NU came close to beating Syracuse...I don't know how that plays into this game, but NU is at home so they get the pick. Scientific, eh?
• Michigan State @ Wisconsin
Before the season started, I predicted that little brah would go 1-3 in September...so they must lose this game.
• Indiana @ Michigan
• Iowa @ Penn State
Revenge alert! Probably the game of the week in the Big Ten. This will be a good game. But I'm leaning towards Penn State right now. Happy Valley at night in front of a national audience...I have to go with JoPa.
• Notre Dame @ Purdue
I don't want to do it, but Purdue's defense is so bad, I must.
