Big Ten Awards - Week 9

Now the mess and the race tightens up.  Iowa, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Ohio State will race to the end of the year for the Rose Bowl and most likely a Sugar or Fiesta bowl slot.  Sparty's loss in Iowa City ended any hope of a Big Ten team winning the National Title, but revitalized the Hawkeyes.  The biggest game of the year remaining is Nov 20th in Iowa City with the Hawkeyes-Buckeyes.

Helmet Sticker -  Nathan Scheelhaase, QB, Illinois.  The Freshman had 195 yards passing and 118 yards rushing and 4 td's in the Illini's 44-10 win over Purdue.

Ricky Stanzi, QB - Iowa.  The Hawkeye senior has been steady all year long and cut down on his 2009 mistakes.  Only threw for 190 yards but had 3 tds and pretty much handed off from midway in the 3rd quarter on in the Hawkeyes huge win over #5 Michigan State.

Team of the Week -  Iowa Hawkeyes.  Iowa's played a bad quarter of football at Arizona and had a few kicking misques vs Wisconsin otherwise they would be in the top 5.  This weekend vs the Spartans the Hawkeyes showed what they should have been showing all year and maybe last week the Badgers woke up a sleeping Giant.  Iowa destroyed the Spartans.

Highlight of the Week - Tyler Sash & Micha Hyde's Interception return to give the Hawks a 17-0 lead.

Picks - Went 4-1 and the 1 loss cost me a game in the Jimmy John's Challenge.
Conf - 16-8
Seas - 55-12
JJ Challenge - (-3)
