The Final Weekend in the Big Ten

Sorry, busy week last week for everyone. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t recap the Big Ten.

And remember it’s a short turnaround this week. Get your picks in early.

Nebraska at MichiganMy Pick: I would have picked Michigan at home.
Actual Score: Michigan 45 Nebraska 17.
In my Defense: Ugly. Wolverines try to break the OSU curse this week. Nebraska gets Iowa at home and a chance to feel better before their bowl.

Iowa at PurdueMy Pick: I might have gone with Boilers here.
Actual Score: Iowa 31 Purdue 21
In My Defense: Boilers need a win for a Bowl. Iowa trying to make certain it’s a bowl worth going too.

Wisconsin at IllinoisMy Pick: Badgers.
Actual Score: Wisconsin 28 Illinois 17
In My Defense: Ron Zook’s seat is very, very hot. Wisconsin needs one more win for Indy.

Penn State at Ohio State.My Pick: Almost certainly would have went with Bucks in slugfest.
Actual Score: Penn State 20 Ohio State 14.
In My Defense: Unbelievably if the Lions win on Saturday they go to Indy. Will the Buckeyes hire a new coach BEFORE the title game?

Indiana at Michigan StateMy Pick: Spartans
Actual Score: Michigan State 55 Indiana 3.
In My Defense: Spartans try to avoid the letdown this week after clinching the Legends.

Minnesota at NorthwesternMy Pick: Dan Persa.
Actual Score: Northwestern 28 Minnesota 13.
In My Defense: Cats are bowl bound. Minnesota is not.

For the week: We won’t count these. For the year: 29-15, (24-12).
