Across The Empire: Your Apocademption Saturday Early Games Thread

New, 714 comments

So the B1G finds itself coming off of a rough week, and is somewhere between Apocalypse and redemption. I don't think there's any one game on the schedule that will mean full redemption, but last week wasn't really the Apocalypse, either. It wasn't great, don't get me wrong, but there's still a lot of football to be played.

So the Good Guys find themselves somewhere in between the two extremes this week, and I'd only classify one game as a headliner--Michigan State and Notre Dame square off as the headliner this evening. Your conference games for today:

Time (CST) Network Visitor Home Quick Prediction
11:00 BTN Western Michigan Minnesota Gophers 3-0? Yup
11:00 ESPN 2 Arkansas State Nebraska Huskers Bounce Back Big
11:00 BTN Charleston Southern Illinois Is there a Charleston Northern?
11:00 BTN Eastern Michigan Purdue

Purdue gets healthy on directional Michigan

11:00 ABC Cal Ohio State OSU wins, Miller has less than 20 carries. I hope
2:30 BTN Boston College Northwestern I like Northwestern, by two scores
2:30 ABC/ESPN2 Navy Penn State Navy in the upset
2:30 BTN Northern Iowa Iowa Iowa State understandable. A loss here won't be. Don't lose Iowa.
2:30 BTN UMass Michigan Michigan by 30.
7:00 BTN Ball State Indiana Indiana is going to be 3-0, world will not end
7:00 BTN Utah State Wisconsin Wisconsin by 4
7:00 ABC Notre Dame MSU Sparty wins and ND's championship hopes end in September, for the 23rd year in a row

I'm calling 11-1 for the conference this week. 12-0 would make me giddy.

You know the drill on the no-nos: No racism, no sexism, no homophobia, no personal attacks, no pornography, no politics, and no illegal Internet streams of the games. Basically, don't be a dick. Other than that, have at it.

Enjoy the games, everyone!
