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

So the college basketball season has essentially started with team practices under way, but we're still a little bit over a month from the actual tipoff. That being said, it's Saturday so that means it's another day of Big Ten football. Like last week here's a little reference guide for today's action and my predictions.

Time Game Network Line Preview
12:00 Ohio State at Maryland ABC OSU -7 Ohio StateMaryland
12:00 Purdue at Illinois ESPN2 ILL - 9 Purdue Illinois
2:30 North Texas at Indiana BTN IND - 14 North TexasIndiana
3:30 Wisconsin at Northwestern ESPN2 WIS -8 Wisconsin Northwestern
7:00 Michigan at Rutgers BTN RUT -2 Michigan Rutgers
8:00 Nebraska at Michigan State ABC MSU -7 Nebraska Michigan State

And here are my predictions for today's games. Last week I ended up going 6-3, which was okay I guess (hate you Penn State, Michigan and Purdue).

Game Prediction
Ohio State at Maryland Ohio State 37 Maryland 20
Purdue at Illinois Purdue 20 Illinois 17
North Texas at Indiana Indiana 41 North Texas 24
Wisconsin at Northwestern Wisconsin 34 Northwestern 13
Michigan at Rutgers Michigan 20 Rutgers 10
Nebraska at Michigan State Michigan State 38 Nebraska 24

Enjoy the football. And of course, if you want some in-depth Big Ten conversation around the network, be sure to join the daily game threads over at Off Tackle Empire or any of the respective B1G SB Nation sites.
