I’m not sure if this just isn’t my year or if Kevin has an inside man giving him some pointers on a weekly basis. But alas, I fall even further behind our Big Ten picks leader.
Perhaps I’m following suit of how conference teams have performed this year. Or, maybe I just don’t know Big Ten football as well as I thought. Either way, I am going to start making some bold predictions to get back into the hunt.
Stay tuned for this week’s picks, as Kevin and I debate and announce our friendly wager for the winner of this contest.
In the meantime, here are the picks from week 5:
Indiana vs. Northwestern
Kevin’s Pick – Northwestern 45-17
Dustin’s Pick – Northwestern 37-12
Final Score – Northwestern 44-29
Indiana’s offense put up a fight, especially for a team without its starting quarterback. The Wildcats were able to fend off the Hoosiers, however, and are now off to a 5-0 start.
Penn State vs. Illinois
Kevin’s Pick – Penn State 20-10
Dustin’s Pick – Penn State 17-13
