The second week of the college football season provides us with 13 B1G games which should keep us fueled all day. And we do mean ALL day. Kickoffs start at noon and run throughout the day, with Michigan State-Arizona State starting at 10:50 p.m. ET, giving fans a taste of #Pac12AfterDark action.

As we enter a full day of B1G football, here are five bold predictions for the Saturday ahead.

Rutgers won’t get shutout again by the Ohio State defense

Ohio State has knocked around the Scarlet Knights in the last two meetings, winning the two matchups by a combined 114-0. The Buckeyes’ defense showed a few (very minimal) flaws late in the game against Oregon State. Rutgers can surely get a touchdown, or at least a field goad, this season, right?

Brian Lewerke has a monster game in his home state

Temperatures are expected to reach 107 degrees in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, but Michigan State quarterback Brian Lewerke is making a homecoming appearance and he’ll want to shine. Lewerke is going to have a special night in his home state, especially if Cole Chewins is back on the field for the offensive line. Let’s say three or more touchdown passes for the Spartans quarterback.

One B1G team loses to a G5 opponent

There are five B1G teams that will battle Group of 5 opponents on Saturday. While you’d like to think the conference could finish the day with a nice, clean 5-0 record in those games, it’s rarely the case. The most likely pick would be Fresno State to beat Minnesota, as the Gophers are just a 2.5-point favorite in the game. There could be another surprise in there, too.

Rondale Moore widens the gap as the B1G’s all-purpose yards leader

Moore was sensational in Purdue’s Week 1 game against Northwestern, racking up 313 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns. The true freshman currently leads the B1G in all-purpose yardage by 124 yards. Ohio State’s Mike Weber is currently second with 189 yards. The Boilermakers’ offense shouldn’t have trouble against Eastern Michigan and Moore should rack up more big numbers on Saturday.

Penn State-Pitt comes down to the final possession

With all the trash talk that’s gone on between Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi and Penn State players, both teams will be on the field with something to prove. That usually makes for a really good matchup. The Nittany Lions aren’t as talented as they were last year and Pitt has pulled off a few really big upsets in the Narduzzi era. There’s no way this isn’t a one-possession game.
