Big Ten Preview: Week 10

The Big 10 Race to Indy is a mess.  The front runner Wisconsin has lost two heart breakers back to back.  Penn State has been called the worst 1 loss team in the nation, MSU has a ton of trouble on the road, Iowa lost to Minnesota last week and OSU is now showing signs of life.  

Nebraska and Michigan have a conference loss with some tough games still to play   So what does this week have for us?

Big Ten Game of the Week

-Nothing to see here.   

The rest of the conference

Minnesota at MSU:  One team got dominated last week and the other one is coming off a win.  Hard to believe it's the Golden Gophers who were the one with a win.  MSU has all kind of problems when they leave East Lansing but this game is at home.  Minnesota seems to have all kids of problems anytime they play football.   State is favored by 27.5 points.   I don't expect the Gophers to score.   MSU 42 Minn 0

Indiana at OSU:  Ohio State is finding it can win without throwing the ball much and have two nice wins in a row over Illinois and Wisconsin.  Indiana is finding it can't win without playing defense.   Another 27.5 line.   OSU 42 IU 0

Purdue at Wisconsin:  Purdue beat Illinois and thought they had turned their season around and then got slapped in Ann Arbor.  Wisconsin has had two weeks of hell with two Hail Mary's to lose games and a shot at the National Championship.  They are trying to win out, to see if they can sneak into the Big Ten Championship.  This is a 25 point line.  Wisconsin 42 Purdue 0

Northwestern at Nebraska:  The Wildcats are a better team then their record.   Persa can pick you apart on defense.   Nebraska is playing much better defense then they were earlier in the year.  If this game was at NW and about a month ago, I would of called an upset.   Not now but I wouldn't give Persa much time to look to look around.  NW defense will get run over at some point.   Nebraska -17.5.   Northwestern 21 Nebraska 42

Michigan at Iowa will be previewed on Friday and the only single digit line of the weekend in the Big 10.
