Week 9 B1G picks against the spread
It’s all on the line. After eight straight weeks of nonstop (OK, maybe a few stops) B1G football, the B1G Championship Game has arrived.
For Ohio State, it’s a chance to prove that it belongs in the College Football Playoff. Northwestern, on the other hand, can shock the world and show that it can compete with any team in the sport. It’s the second time the two teams have met in the B1G Championship Game in three years, and it should be a lot of fun.

And that’s not the only football game we get this weekend, either. Four other games are still on the docket, with two being canceled. Par for the course in 2020, right? The Old Oaken Bucket matchup between Purdue and Indiana has been sidelined until 2021 and the contest between Iowa and Michigan will not take place, either. Still, there are five interesting football contests on the schedule to close out the year.
