The B1G has three huge conference games this weekend that may determine who will lead the conference early on and Brad Crawford has given his prediction for these three games:

  • Michigan vs Maryland
  • Ohio State vs Wisconsin
  • Michigan State vs Minnesota

Both Michigan and Maryland have been on fire recently on offense but Crawford seems to think that it will be the Wolverines and their offense that will come out on top, 38-24. Sounds like a high-scoring affair.

Wisconsin is coming off a bounce-back win after losing a heartbreaker to Washington State. Now, the Badgers have to open up conference play against Ohio State who has been on a tear offensively since the victory over Notre Dame to open the season. Crawford thinks the Buckeyes will prevail over the Badgers, 38-17.

Like Wisconsin, Michigan State is also coming off a loss, but unlike the Badgers, the Spartans will open up B1G play with Minnesota. Although the Gophers aren’t Ohio State, this still won’t be an easy game for the Spartans but Crawford feels that Michigan State will somehow pull this game out in a thriller, 31-30.
