Across the Empire - The Real Season Open Thread

And it's on. Five real games today, and three of them are absolutely delicious.

We'll kick off with Ohio State visiting Illinois (BTN) and Northwestern heading to Minnesota (ESPN) at 11 AM CDT. Their nice appetizers, and will be interesting to see if either home dog can catch the favorite napping.

Indiana hosts Michigan (ESPNU) and Michigan State hosts Wisconsin (ABC/ESPN) at 2:30. That's right, four of the six unbeaten teams face off in Week 1. Again, can either home dog catch the favorite napping. I'm really curious to see whether Wisconsin or Michigan State can impose their will upon the other side. Should be a great game of traditional Big Ten football.

Finally, Iowa welcomes Penn State at 7:00 (ESPN). The build up to this game has been quieter this year, but for two teams who started the season with big expectations, a 3-2 start will not get it done.

Have at it, but play nicely with each other.
