B1G Survivor 2021 Week 8

Bryon Houlgrave/The Register / USA TODAY NETWORK




After weeks of minimal action in B1G Survivor, Week 7 made up for it in a big way. The only contestants who had it easy this week were the two who picked..........Northwestern?!?!?

We started the week with 56 remaining players. We had a 3 vs. 2 ¨Thunderdome¨ match-up in the Rutgers-Northwestern game, and the three Rutgers backers got sent home. We then lost another three via Nebraska-Minnesota. Finally, the big movement game saw 16 Iowa pickers get knocked out with Purdue´s upset (including some boiler fans who died happy). Add in three no-shows, and here are the 31 that are still alive:

Note: the first grouping is the teams you have already picked, and the second grouping contains the B1G opponents of the teams you have picked. Once a particular team in grouping #2 shows up three times, it will be bolded, and cannot be picked against for the rest of the year.

Here is the Week 8 Schedule. All games are on Saturday.

Illinois @ Penn St

Northwestern @ Michigan

Wisconsin @ Purdue

Maryland @ Minnesota

Ohio St @ Indiana

All picks are due on Saturday at 11AM Central. I´m seeing a heavy dose of PSU and Michigan picks this week.....
