In the B1G West, Wisconsin and Iowa will go head-to-head in a key battle. The loser will take a third loss on the season and fall further out of the West race. The winner will stay at two losses and remain close to Minnesota in the race.

The biggest game of the weekend will go down in Minneapolis with the Gophers hosting Penn State. Both teams are undefeated, but the Nittany Lions were ranked much higher on the CFP Rankings. A win for Minnesota would be a huge statement while Penn State is trying to keep pace with No. 1 Ohio State in the B1G East.

On Wednesday, ESPN’s Bill Connelly shared the SP+ picks for the weekend. Here’s how the B1G action is being predicted:

  • Maryland 8, Ohio State 46
  • Penn State 28, Minnesota 26
  • Purdue 25, Northwestern 20
  • Illinois 18, Michigan State 29
  • Iowa 17, Wisconsin 27
