Last weekend, Big Ten teams boasted a 10-2 record while this weeks opponents won nine of their 11 matchups. While there is no marquee game like the Alabama-Michigan contest this coming week, there a handful of games that could be considered tossups this Saturday.
Purdue vs. Notre Dame, Iowa State vs. Iowa, and Illinois vs. Arizona State headline those matchups. In 2011, the Boilermakers and Hawkeyes both lost in these same rivalry games, while Illinois defeated Arizona State in Champaign.
After predicting 11 out of 12 games right last week, I'm confident in a repeat performance this coming week. I'd also like to add that I'll be in beautiful Tempe, Arizona this weekend and attending the Fighting Illini - Sun Devils game.
