Week Ten Recap
It was a truly wild and crazy weekend in the Big Ten, including for a future com padre. In the end, not much changed but it was a great ride getting there.

Illinois and Michigan played an overtime battle for the ages and not one that any defensive coordinator would ever like. 67-65. Almost a mile of total offense. And in the end, Michigan gets to go bowling once more.

Michigan State rolled as expected. Wisconsin rolled but after a half of wake up time. Northwestern jumped out big early but ended up watching Penn State celebrate Joe Pa's 400th win.

Iowa got lucky. Indiana dropped what appeared to be the game-winning touchdown with :18 remaining. And Nebraska dodged a bullet, squandering a two-score lead and batting away Iowa State's attempt to win on a fake PAT in overtime.

Team of the Week... I'll give it to Penn State. Great comeback and a very nice celebration of the winningest D1 coach in history.

Player of the Week... So many options. Mikel Leshoure. Ray Roundtree. Edwin Baker. Nathan Scheelhaase. We'll let them all share it!

Get Gamm... Everyone but TwinCityBuckeye went 5-1. TCB was perfect and gets to pick this week.

Indiana at Wisconsin
Iowa at Northwestern
Michigan at Purdue

Week 11 picks:

Indiana 14 at WISCONSIN 28--The Hoosiers have occasionally given the Badgers more than expected, but not this year in Camp Randall.

Iowa 17 at NORTHWESTERN 20--Wildcats have just missed a few times while the Hawkeyes escaped last week. I believe that the tables may turn this week.

Michigan 42 at PURDUE 44--Biased, yes; delusional, possibly--but a must win for a bowl brings out the optimist in me.

Minnesota 7 at ILLINOIS 20--The Illini defense gets back on track this week.

*Penn State 10 at OHIO STATE 31--Congrats to JoePa on 400 last week--but the Buckeyes end the Lion winning streak.

Kansas 7 at NEBRASKA 38--Stephen F. Douglas, look away in horror--there will be no compromise by the Huskers in this border tilt.
