NFL.com identifies 6 B1G games among 18 matchups with most NFL talent on display
Every fall, the Big Ten trots out dozens of NFL-caliber talent, and the 2018 season will be no different when it kicks off in a couple of months.
However, not every game is created equal, and this week, NFL.com analyst Chase Goodbread ranked the 18 college football games with the most NFL talent on display (with the caveat that no team could appear on the list more than three times).
Unsurprisingly, six B1G games (featuring four different squads) made the cut, led by Michigan’s Nov. 24 showdown in Columbus at No. 1:
- No. 1 — Michigan at Ohio State — Nov. 24
- No. 2 — Wisconsin at Michigan — Oct. 13
- No. 5 — Ohio State at Penn State — Sept. 29
- No. 10 — Michigan at Notre Dame — Sept. 1
- No. 11 — Ohio State vs. TCU — Sept. 15
- No. 14 — Wisconsin at Penn State — Nov. 10
All six of these games will be a lot of fun to watch, and it’ll be interesting to see which unheralded players become NFL targets as the season wears on.
