This weekend, the Big 10 will have the biggest game of the year in the conference. The winner of the game will have a spot reserved for them in the Rose Bowl. The loser will most likely go on to a lesser bowl and have to deal with a lot of disappointment.
The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Iowa Hawkeyes will square off at Ohio State this weekend and the stakes couldn’t be much higher. So what should we expect out of this one as far as Free College Football Picks go?
Iowa could be in trouble in this one. Last week they lost their first game of the season to Northwestern. In the game, they lost quarterback Ricky Stanzi for at least the next two weeks. That will hurt their offense quite a bit as he is a very solid player for them.
The Hawkeyes still have a solid team overall and a good defense especially. However, they have gone from national title contenders to perhaps not even in the Rose Bowl in a matter of a week. Therefore, things could definitely be better for Iowa.
Ohio State has come a long way since a heartbreaking loss to Purdue a few weeks back. They are currently ranked No. 10 and are fresh off of a win against Penn State. The only thing standing between them and the Rose Bowl is a home win against an Iowa team without their quarterback.
The Buckeyes bring a good quarterback of their own with them in Terrelle Pryor. His running ability opens things up for the Buckeyes offense. They also have a very talented defense that will be a tough test for the Iowa offense without their quarterback. Iowa fans are hoping that their team shows up in a big way for the game this weekend.
