Week 9:  Michigan State Beats Nebraska and 5 Other Big Ten Picks

In East Lansing, it is simply "The Catch." Michigan State receiver Keith Nichol (pictured) went 59 minutes and 59 seconds without a reception against the Wisconsin Badgers.

Then in a "Hail Mary" pass play that has become a trademark of college football, Nichol catches a rebound and scores the winning touchdown on the final play of the game.  It is what makes college football frightening, maddening, delightful or any other wonderful adjective that describes this fall sport.

And we haven't reached the midpoint of the Big Ten football schedule!

Halloween is looming, so let's take a look at six dandy games that will close out October.  They include the

  • Big Ten College Football Game of the Week (CFGotW)
  • Three Chiller games (sometimes called "trap" games)
  • Two Snoozers (games you couldn't get me to watch)
  • Big Ten Player To Watch

There are no "Etc." (Et cetera) games this week, given the "trick or treat" nature of the schedule.
