20 Days to B1G Basketball: It's Football Day

Today we continue our daily countdown towards the tipoff of the Big Ten basketball season.

Ronald Martinez

In less than three weeks we'll be officially sharing Saturday as Big Ten basketball will officially be under way. But until we get there, enjoy another fall Saturday of football as the stakes start to raise considerably as we approach the tail end of the season.

Time Game Network Line Preview
12:00 Minnesota at Illinois ESPNU Minn -5.5 Minnesota Illinois
12:00 Maryland at Wisconsin BTN Wis -10.5 Maryland Wisconsin
12:00 Rutgers at Nebraska ESPN2 Neb -20.5 Rutgers Nebraska
3:30 Michigan at Michigan State ABC MSU -17 Michigan Michigan State
8:00 Ohio State at Penn State ABC OSU -13.5 Ohio StatePenn State

And here are my predictions for today's action. I had another 5-0 week so I've now gotten every game right the last two weeks so there's that. Let's see if I can make it three in a row.

Game Prediction
Minnesota at Illinois Minnesota 31 Illinois 10
Maryland at Wisconsin Wisconsin 27 Maryland 20
Rutgers at Nebraska Nebraska 38 Rutgers 17
Michigan at Michigan State Michigan State 31 Michigan 13
