Biggest Games
I think all 4 of the B1G-Pac-12 matchups are pretty compelling. But, I think Wisconsin traveling to Tempe to take on Arizona State should be one of the better games this week. We don't know a lot about Wisconsin right now other than they've played two creampuffs and haven't given up a single point...which is impressive no matter who you're playing.

Northwestern broke free of the "B1G traveling west curse' to beat Cal a couple weeks ago. So we'll see if Wisconsin can do the same against the Sun Devils.

Upset Alert
Lots of potential upsets out there this week. I think Indiana could have their hands full with BGSU. Michigan State is going to have to outscore their own defense at some point, but they can probably squeak by Youngstown. Central Florida will give Penn State all they can handle, and more I think.

But I'm also going to be interested in seeing how Ohio State plays at Cal. They should win by 3 scores, but you never I right?!

Snoozer of the Week
Dare I say Michigan versus Akron? No, I will. I'll say Michigan versus Akron.

Bold Predictions
I think Iowa somehow gets it done against Iowa State. I think the Big Ten and Pac-12 split their 4 games with Ohio State and Wisconsin both victorious. I think Nebraska and Penn State get exposed a little bit...or a lot bit. And I think Notre Dame wins by 50 at Purdue.
