Big Ten Predictions – Week 7

Minnesota @ Purdue
The Boilers are coming off an upset of Northwestern in Evanston.  They don’t have Marve or their top running back and they slowed down the Cats enough to pull out a 3 point win.  Minnesota got destroyed in Madison by the Badgers.  Their coach went off then on the other team for Wisconsin going for 2.  The Gophers have been focused the following week after getting crushed.  The Gophers have the better QB (not by much) and think they will be in it.  Still think the Boilers pull it out in the 4th.  PICK – BOILERMAKERS

Illinois @ Michigan State
So I’ve picked against Sparty 2 straight weeks and they’ve bit me.  I’m learning my lesson though they have a tough spot here vs Illinois.  The Illini went to State College and got their first when vs Penn State at Beaver Stadium.  They are playing some D and can give Sparty some fits.  Will Michigan State be on a down after 2 straight emotional wins?  I think their offense is too well balanced and will come out with a 10 point win.  PICK-SPARTANS

Iowa @ Michigan
Iowa is coming off a bye to go take on the high octane Wolverines.  They got some film on how to stop Denard Robinson.  For the 2nd straight year the Wolverines first loss came to the hand of Michigan State.  Though they lost, DRob still put up 300 yards.  I think Iowa’s DL has the athleticism to slow down DRob, then the young backers would have to help out, they are going to have to be disciplined.  Iowa’s offense is going to be able to score and will need to keep the foot on the gas pedal.  PICK-IOWA

Ohio State @ Wisconsin
Bucky vs Brutus.  Wisconsin prepped for this game by destroying Minnesota and going for 2 up 25 points with 6 mins left.  Ohio State and Terrell Pryor are rolling on offense.  The little slow down vs Illinois seems to be legit after the Illini beat Penn State.  They then destroyed the Hoosiers.  Wisconsin I think looks really slow and not as explosive as they should be, and also they seem to be playing down or up to their competition.  GameDay is at the game, it’s at night and Camp Randall will be rocking.  It will be a rough environment for the Buckeyes, but I think they come out with their #1 ranking  with a 10-20 point win.  PICK-OHIO STATE

  1. Minnesota @ Purdue: Ugh – this is not an exciting game at all…I pick Purdue, only because they are at home.

    Illinois @ Michigan State: I think Illinois could catch Michigan St in a trap game here, but I’m still picking Michigan St.

    Iowa @ Michigan: I’m sticking with my Hawkeyes.

    Ohio State @ Wisconsin: I am excited to see Wisconsin’s rushing attack vs. Ohio St’s defense…Ohio St gets it done in the end to stay undefeated.
