Toughest set of games to pick this season so far.

Well I'm 20-4 on the season with my picks after another 10-2 record during week 2 of the Big 10 season. Last week I lost the thriller between Iowa and Iowa State and also lost the Minnesota and New Mexico State Game.

Lets hope to improve on these numbers in Week 3. Here are my picks:


Michigan 28  Eastern Michigan 14

This could be kind of a hangover game for the Wolverines after such a thriller against Notre Dame. I wouldn't be surprised to see Michigan to start off slowly but still win by two scores.


Penn State 31  Temple 7

I expect the Lions to rebound from the loss to Alabama last week.


Iowa 24   Pittsburgh 21

I think Iowa will win at home, but it definitely will be a close one.


Purdue 24  SEMO 14

The Boilermakers have to win this game. Don't they?


Miami (OH) 24  Minnesota 21

I can't figure out this year's Gophers squad. They lose a close one to USC but then fall to New Mexico State. This week I expect to be close again and I'm going to go with Miami.


Michigan State 27  Notre Dame 24

Sparty will be tested for the first time this season against the Irish, but as the better team they'll win a close one in South Bend.


Northwestern 31  Army 17

With or without Persa, I still like the 'Cats in this one.


Indiana 24  South Carolina State 17

Hoosiers have to win this game. Right?


Nebraska 35  Washington 10

Have to go with the 'Huskers at home.


Wisconsin 38  Northern Illinois 24

The Badgers can't look past the Huskies and I don't think they will. This game should be close for a while, but the Badgers will pull away late.


Illinois 31  Arizona State 24

Best team by far the Illini have played this season with the nationally ranked Sun Devils coming to town. I like the Illini at home in what should be an entertaining game.


Miami 28  Ohio State 24

This is a tough one with all the suspensions and such between these two teams.  I'm gonna take the 'Canes at home.
