Former UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel is liking Iowa to upset Michigan in Kinnick Stadium. Brian Jones is picking Illinois to take out Wisconsin in Madison.
Iowa is coming off a B1G win on the road against Rutgers. The Hawkeyes scored 27 points for the second week in a row after scoring just 14 points over their first two games.
Michigan has been clicking in the run game behind Blake Corum. The junior running back has rushed for 478 yards and 9 touchdowns on 64 attempts.
Illinois is coming off two straight wins against Virginia and Chattanooga. Running back Chase Brown has paced the Illini with 604 yards and 3 touchdowns on 95 attempts.
Wisconsin is looking to bounce back after a blowout loss to Ohio State. The Badgers mustered just 104 passing yards, 94 coming from quarterback Graham Mertz.
These potential upsets could have major ramifications for the conference. Let’s see if they happen Saturday.
