So, does anyone make it not a blowout other than MD/MSU?

Blowout afternoon on the way!

Illinois at #3 Michigan (-38.5) || 3:30pm ET || BTN

Nothing to see here...even our Illinois writer is skipping this one.

Purdue at #8 Nebraska (-24) || 3:30pm ET || ABC/ESPN2

Let’s hope for the rest of the nation this isn’t the ABC game. Then again Purdue upset Nebraska last year....so it can happen Boilermakers!

Michigan State at Maryland (+3) || 7:30pm ET || BTN

Maryland never wins night games, especially when they do their dumb blackout gimmick that the AD halfass advertises and doesn’t provide shirts for. Oh, sorry, that’s a different rant. I’m not optimistic, but I’ll go full homer and Maryland will win! I’ll be in Lot 1 tailgating and hopefully get into the game on time with all the extra security this year.

#2 Ohio State at Penn State (+19.5) || 8:00pm ET || ABC

If OSU continues to struggle on defense this game looks like to take Penn State to cover that big spread. Is Penn State going to keep it up and make this closer than it should be?
