On paper, this week might be the most attractive slate of games the B1G has had all season. But will all those intriguing matchups live up to the hype?

In case you were wondering, here’s a look at some of the best contests scheduled for Week 9 in the B1G:

  • No. 13 Wisconsin vs. No. 3 Ohio State
  • No. 6 Penn State vs. Michigian State
  • Indiana vs. Nebraska
  • No. 8 Notre Dame vs. No. 10 Michigan

Cowherd made his picks of the week during his Thursday show. He has some interesting projections about what will happen on the field on Saturday.

Below are Cowherd’s picks for Saturday, along with his explanation for each pick:
