Just like Week 2, this weekend’s slate of Big Ten action will once again happen without Wisconsin as the Badgers continue to deal with a COVID-19 outbreak.

That doesn’t mean, however, that there will not be a solid set of games taking place across the conference. With six games scheduled, there should be plenty of exciting football action.

As we are quickly approaching the action, ESPN’s SP+ has predicted every college football game, including the six Big Ten tilts. Here is what the model spit out for projections of this weekend’s games:

  • Michigan 27, Indiana 25
  • Iowa 26, Michigan State 17
  • Northwestern 28, Nebraska 23
  • Penn State 41, Maryland 15
  • Minnesota 33, Illinois 25
  • Ohio State 46, Rutgers 8

Based on these results, Iowa and Penn State are ecstatic as they get their first win of the 2020 season. Michigan’s win would also be crucial as a loss to the Hoosiers could send the folks in Ann Arbor into a real tizzy. The least surprising prediction is Ohio State blowing out Rutgers. That seems like a safe bet at this point.
