Big Ten Football – Week 6 Predictions

Buckeyes vs Huskers
This week the Nebraska “welcome tour” continues with the depleted Buckeyes going to Lincoln for the Huskers first home Big Ten game.  Both teams coming off losses, the Spartans beating the Buckeyes and in the shoe and the Huskers getting humbled by the Badgers in Madison.  Ohio State will still be a few men down, and allegations may still be a black cloud over the program.  They just aren’t the Buckeyes of the past 10 years and as I predicted in the off season, this could be a 5-3/4-4 conference team.  Another loss here and they are looking at 4-4 in mirror.  The Huskers need to show they can win with Taylor Martinez throwing the ball.  The first 20 minutes they were decent vs the Badgers and then the wheels fell off due to 3 picks by the Husker QB.  Game, Set, Match.  I think the Huskers get out quick and on top of the Buckeyes and win easy and don’t have to rely on Martinez’s arm.  Huskers 30 – Buckeyes 17

The Nittany Lions are favored by 4 over the Hawks, Iowa’s won 8 of the last 9.  If Vandenburg and the Iowa offense can move the ball in the air, its game set match for Penn State.
