Big Ten Week 6 Preview and Recruit Visit List For MSU

Let's quickly look at the Big Ten match-ups this weekend. The best game is in Ann Arbor, so I will choose the second best for the top Big 10 Game of the Week.

Top Game of the Week

Minnesota at Purdue:  Both of these teams took off as Big Ten darlings early in the season.  Purdue came back to earth after Michigan's second half and Minnesota had it's boat sunk last weekend with a loss to Maryland 4th string QB.  Purdue is favored by 4.5 points in this one and I don't expect it to be that close (even though half of the Purdue's defense is out for the first half with all the targeting calls on Michigan).  Purdue 31 Minnesota 21

Wisconsin at Nebraska:  Is Wisky that good? Is Nebraska that bad?  We might find some answers this weekend.  Nebraska really needs a huge win and Wisconsin being ranked #9 would do the trick.  The issue is the Cornhuskers are not very good and a 11 point dog at home.   A home dog is usually a strong position for anyone that likes to bet.    Wisconsin 28 Nebraska 24

Maryland at OSU:  Maryland is close to playing a running back at QB if this one goes down.  OSU is a 30.5 favorite.   I like the points in this one.   OSU 42 Maryland 24

Illinois at Iowa: Both teams have 2 loses and looking for a win.  Iowa is at home and I will go with the wave as -18.5 favorites.    Iowa 32 Illinois 10

Penn State at Northwestern:   The Wildcats always win a game they shouldn't every year.  Not this week! Barkley could beat him by himself.  PSU is -14.5.   Penn State 41 Northwestern 12


This is the first big recruiting weekend during the season.  Michigan will be bringing in a ton of recruits for the UTL match-up with Sparty:

Bryan Addison  4 star S from CA
Julius Irvin - 4 star S from CA (DR J?)
Shocky Jacques-Louis, 3 star WR from FL
Marquan McCall - 4 star OG from Oak Park
Amon-Ra St. Brown - 4 star WR from CA
Chris Smith - 4 star CB from GA

Kevin Doyle, QB
Gemon and German Green CB's
Cam McGrone LB
Christian Turner RB

Adam Berghorst, DE from Zeeland
Logan Brown, OT Kentwood
Devontae Dobbs, OT Belleville
Ryland Goede, TE GA
Jaren Mangham, RB Cass Tech
Harry Miller, OT GA
Cam Phillips, WR Ohio
Torriano Richardson, CB Oak Park
Jaquaze Sorrells, DE FL

A few 2020 guys but its much too early to "look" at that class.
