Ohio State hosts Wisconsin and Michigan looks to rebound against Notre Dame
It’s time to start looking ahead to the upcoming weekend of Big Ten football. Today on the Locked On Nittany Lions Podcast, the weekly Big Ten preview episode has been moved up a day to make room for an upcoming crossover episode with Locked on Spartans for some more conversation about Penn State’s road trip to Michigan State this weekend. So today, the focus is on everything else going on around the conference (and beyond) this weekend.
In today’s episode:
- Ohio State hosting Wisconsin may have lost some steam after the Badgers were upset last week, but there is still a lot riding on this game for both teams
- After their loss to Penn State, Michigan is a slight favorite at home against Notre Dame in a non-conference matchup
- Penn State’s next opponent, Minnesota, has a chance to go 8-0 for the first time since winning the national championship with an 8-0 record in 1941
- Illinois now suddenly has a chance to go to a bowl game, but a win at Purdue may be required (which I discussed here).
- Rutgers is an underdog at home against Liberty. Yup.
