College GameDay crew picks Week 7 B1G games
This is bound to be a wild weekend of college football as the season rolls into December.
Traditionally, this weekend would feature conference championships around the country leading up to the selections for the College Football Playoff. But in the world of a pandemic, this weekend is just Week 7 on the B1G schedule.
There have been two games canceled but five games remain on the slate, none more important to the makeup of the conference and CFP outlook than No. 4 Ohio State taking on Michigan State. That game will be intriguing as the Buckeyes deal with 23 absences – including three offensive line starters – on the Saturday morning status report.
Elsewhere in the conference, Indiana and Wisconsin will square off in a top-20 matchup as the Hoosiers play their first game without starting QB Michael Penix Jr.
As we get set for kickoff, here is how ESPN’s College GameDay crew picked all the Week 7 action, including picks by guest picker Dustin Johnson:
Dustin Johnson: Wisconsin (over Indiana), Ohio State (over Michigan State),
Desmond Howard: Rutgers (+11.5 Superdog vs Penn State), Wisconsin (over Indiana), Ohio State (over Michigan State),
