There are some important football games being played this weekend.

In the B1G alone, there will be two top 25 matchups with significant implications on the line. No. 17 Minnesota (8-0) hosts No. 5 Penn State (8-0), an opportunity for both teams to notch a signature win. N0. 18 Iowa travels to No. 13 Wisconsin for a matchup that could have B1G West implications. Those will be the headliner games this weekend.

And it should provide us with plenty of entertainment.

Before we jump into this week’s picks against the spread, here’s a look at how our Saturday Tradition team stands following last week’s four-game slate:

  • Paul Harvey: 3-1 (45-33)
  • Dustin Schutte: 3-1 (43-35)
