Maryland Terrapins at wisconsin badgers (-24)
11am | FOX
SU: wisconsin, 16-1 || ATS: Maryland, 11-6
James Snyder: Wisconsin, though the line seems excessive.
Andrew Kraszewski: Someone may have overstated Myrrhland's ability to keep base with a superior opponent last week, no idea who. But wisco ain't OSU. Terps cover, don't win.
Thumpasaurus: not sure where maryland's points are gonna come from. wisconsin by many.
Candystripes: Roll Damn Badgers.
BigRedTwice: Wisconsin, because this is 2017 and everything is terrible all the time.
Stewmonkey13: 24 points is too many to swallow when WI is perfectly capable of stumbling along and allowing Maryland to hang around.
MNWildcat: 31-7 is a push in this one, so I’ll say wisconsin wins 30-7.
Iowa Hawkeyes (-1) at Northwestern Wildcats
11am | ESPN2
SU: Iowa, 10-7
AK: I'll take the Fightin' Fitzes in what essentially is a pick'em.
Thump: Nate Stanley > Clayton Thorson. Iowa wins.
Candy: But seriously, why is there actually a spread on this game? Is 1 point really going to make any difference? Iowa by at least a field goal.
BRT: Iowa, because this is 2017 and everything is terrible all the time.
Stew: Not gonna lie, seeing jNW dink and dunk down the field against Maryland gave me some bad flashbacks to Brett Basanez. Hopefully that was just a one off and jNW goes back to good ole reliable speed options.
MNW: Per my time on the Pants Party Podcast, I’m apparently sitting on this one at Iowa 27, Northwestern 24. This won’t be fun. Stupid coin flips.
Purdue Boilermakers (-9.5) at rutger Scarlet Knights
11am | BTN
SU: Purdue, 16-1 | ATS: Purdue, 13-4
JS: First Illinois, then Rutgers, THEN THE WORLD. Thought I might take rutgers and the points.
AK: Congrats to Chris Ash on getting off the B1G schneid. Choo Choo covers.
Thump: It's not gonna be the epic that was promised, but it still might be more competitive than Illinutgers. Still, Purdue covers.
Candy: As funny as it would be for the 'Gers to pull a reverse harboring, it's not happening. They'll also just barely miss covering.
BRT: Purdue, you'd better win this, or you're going to undo all the goodwill you've built up this season.
Stew: I kinda expect Purdue to win by 20+. rutger is going to be coming down after that program changing win against Illinois.
MNW: Someone cared enough last week to compile my picks and inform me that I’m a Purdue hater. So let’s steer into the skid, goddamit. rutger, 35-31.
Indiana Hoosiers at #18 Michigan State Spartans (-6)
2:30pm || ABC
SU: Michigan State, 15-2 | ATS: Michigan State, 13-4
JS: Indiana falls flat on their faces after shooting their wad and failing against Michigan.
AK: GIMME DAT SPIT, Spartans cover
Thump: Close but no cigar. IU covers.
Candy: Believing in IU only causes me pain, so I fully expect us to get blown out. The only question is by how much.
BRT: Candy has convinced me that Indiana will never win a big game, or even a big-ish game. So MSU it is.
Stew: This is going to be an ugly rock fight, and Indiana will lose in heartbreaking fashion.
MNW: I BELIEVE. IT’S GOT TO HAPPEN EVENTUALLY. Indiana, 23-17.
2:30pm || hopefully BTN
SU: Minnesota, 17-0 | ATS: Minnesota, 11-6
JS: WHO CARES? Ok, I'll take Minnesota.
AK: I'm assuming last week is enough for Fleck to roll with Demry Croft; assuming that's the case, Gophs cover.
Candy: Way to kick Thump while he's down, Goldy. How rude.
BRT: Minny, but wouldn't it be funny if Illinois somehow won this?
Stew: I so very much want to Illinois to win this. And while Illinois is incapable of taking advantage of MN's complete lack of OL, I think MN's complete lack of secondary will likely hamper Jeff George Jr.'s ability to catch up to Tanner Lee's interception pace.
MNW: I don’t even fucking know anymore. Minnesota, 24-14.
#19 Michigan Wolverines at #2 Penn State Nittany Lions (-9.5)
6:30pm || ABC
SU; Penn State, 12-5 | Michigan, 9-8
JS: WHO CARES, PART 2? Penn State should win rather easily, but that line is awfully big. Then again, Michigan looked pretty awful against Indiana.
AK: ny way for both teams to lose? Michigan covers, PSU wins.
Thump: meatchicken straight up, the defense isn't that much worse than last year. dewit.
Candy: You know, it's been a while since we've had a 6-4 game around these parts.....
BRT: Penn State, probably, but what I do know is that the insufferability emanating from a stadium filled with these two fanbases is going to be detectable on radar.
Stew: PSU's defense outscores MI's offense.
MNW: Penn State, because this is 2017 and everything is terrible all the time. 17-10.
Road to Pandemonium!

Yes, I understand that this is a Holy Cross joke and I miss Bill Carmody.
Let’s see how many votes for "meteor" we can get.
