A prediction for every game in the Big Ten this week
Despite the love for the SEC, the Big Ten has arguably been the best conference in the nation. Even though the Iowa Hawkeyes and Michigan State Spartans have fallen out of the top-25, the conference still has four teams in the top-12.
Not to mention, Ohio State and Michigan are ranked second and fourth in the AP Poll, respectively. That makes the Big Ten the only team projected to have two teams in the College Football Playoff. While there is a lot of season left to be played, the conference is sitting well halfway through the season.
This week, there are five conference games. Michigan State is the only team taking on a non-conference opponent. While there are no top-25 matchups this week in the Big Ten, there are still many great games. Iowa football and Minnesota is just one, as the Hawkeyes look to defend the Floyd of Rosedale trophy.
Not many people are expecting any big upsets this week, however an upset wouldn’t just shake the Big Ten picture but also the AP Poll drastically. Here’s a look at how each team in the Big Ten will fare this week.
