Big Ten Football (non-top 25 matchups)

Boh Suh, Staff Writer

Can you believe that Penn State is 0-5? It is hard to believe a talented team like that falls apart like this. Misery loves company, which features the matchup between Penn State and Michigan. And of course, there are other teams like Nebraska, Purdue, Rutgers, and Iowa. Where is Illinois? Oh, they are playing against Ohio State, so that is why they are not here this week.

Nebraska vs. Iowa – My pick: Iowa. Iowa is moving to the right direction after winning three games in a row. On the other hand, Nebraska seems a little lost after losing against Illinois at home. Someone posted two pictures of Scott Frost, a head coach for Nebraska before he signed with this team and after being the head coach for a couple years. Google it, and you know what I am talking about. Stress is not fun for anyone.

Penn State vs. Michigan – My pick: Penn State. Usually, this game is featured as potential top 10 matchup featured in ABC, ESPN, FOX, and any media coverage. Wait, never mind, it is covered in ABC, but the gravity of this matchup is much lighter than two months ago. I also think that Penn State will get a first victory this season this week. Sorry coach Jim Harbaugh.

Rutgers vs. Purdue – My pick: Purdue. Honestly, I am happy for Rutgers for their first win this season. Do they have a shot for the second win this week? If so, this may be the best chance out of three games remaining.
