#7 Nebraska at #11 Wisconsin, Saturday October 29th, 7PM

This will be the top Big Ten matchup of the weekend. Nebraska has to win this game to prove their worth in the nation. Up to now, they aren’t exactly battle tested; what better way than a hostile crowd in ranked Wisconsin? Wisconsin is a great team. There is no doubt in my mind that they can beat a majority of the top ten teams. Yes, including Nebraska. Wisconsin has two losses, and they are from two top 5 powerhouses in Michigan and OSU. I think Wisconsin gets it done at home in a good one.

Prediction: Wisconsin 27, Nebraska 14

#2 Michigan at Michigan State, Saturday, October 29th, Noon

This is another great Big Ten matchup; this time between in state rivals. Last season was a historic game in this series with Michigan State, winning with under 10 seconds left after Michigan’s punter lost grip of the ball. Michigan State returned it for a touchdown and won 27-21. This reportedly has Michigan players absolutely boiling and ready for revenge. Michigan is on a hot streak, and I don’t expect it to end. Michigan players are angry and ready to roll this struggling Michigan State team. Expect Michigan to get their revenge this weekend in East Lansing.

Prediction: Michigan 42, Michigan State 10

#4 Washington at #17 Utah, Saturday October 29th, 3:30 PM

Another top 25 matchup in the college football. These two teams are ready to prove what they’re worth. Washington is a proven team and has beaten many ranked teams. Utah has had kind of a disappointing season, but with this win, they can make it better. While with home field advantage a win is very possible, I don’t think it’s going to happen. Washington takes this one.

Prediction: Washington 31, Utah 17
