Week 11 B1G picks: Are we due for some November madness?
It’s coming, right?
You know, that massive upset that NOBODY saw coming. To this point, we’ve only really had one of those. And looking back, Penn State’s upset isn’t looking nearly as massive as it once did.
To this point, the top teams haven’t been tested quite as much as they usually are. As stated in the Week 11 B1G Power Rankings, the B1G’s top five teams (Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin) have only lost one game to a team outside of that group and that was PSU losing as a road underdog to Pitt in Week 2.
Could this finally be the week that the top of the B1G doesn’t look so dominate and we change our playoff thinking? It could be. If so, we’ll all wind up looking foolish.
In other words, get ready for at least one of those lopsided games to go the other way:
