Biggest must-watch:
No question, "Wake up the echoes: 2012 edition" is the game of the week.

I've come to the conclusion that the B1G either needs to start scheduling better non-conference opponents, or conference games need to start in September. This is the second week in a row with pretty much every B1G game being a snoozer outside of someone playing Notre Dame. (I'm looking at you Ohio State).

Upset Alert!
With the way things are going so far in 2012, almost any team can be on upset alert. Iowa's season is already off to a rough start, which could get rougher after a possible loss to Central Michigan. Penn State lives on upset alert pretty much every week. Not that it would shock anyone, but I can see Syracuse beating Minnesota, ending their improbable winning streak at 3.

Snoozer of the week:
UAB at Ohio State. I'm done caring about Urbz clubbing baby seals.

Bold predictions!
I predict another good weekend for the B1G. Iowa, Northwestern, Penn State all win, but it's closer than they would like. I think Michigan finds a way to win in South Bend...Denard is like kryptonite for the Irish. Sparty, Ohio State, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Illinois all win like they should.
I just would like to say that last week I said the B1G should see 10 wins, and they got 10 wins. I should get paid more for this.
