Around the B1G: Big Ten Week 3 Predictions

16 Sep

Predicting each Big Ten match-up one sentence at a time.

Eastern Michigan vs Michigan

Shoelace, fresh off his new Twitter account,  shines as he wows new followers. Premature Heisman hash-tag mania ensues.

Final score: Michigan 31, Eastern Michigan 9

Penn State vs Temple

Post-Alabama hangover and Temple’s running game give Lions fits as Joe Pa’s farewell tour picks up momentum.

Final Score: Temple 28, Penn State 20

Pitt vs Iowa

Vengeance is on the mind as Pitt faces the Hawkeyes at the wrong time. Damn you, Iowa State…

Final Score: Iowa 37, Pitt 17

South Carolina State vs Indiana

I’ll throw coach Kevin Wilson a bone in the “Nobody Really Cares” Bowl–mostly because it will be the only bowl the Hoosiers see.

Final score: Indiana 24, South Carolina State 13

Michigan State vs Notre Dame

Michigan State’s defense bends, but doesn’t break. Notre Dame runs “Little Giants” three times to no avail.

Final Score: MSU 27, Notre Dame 23

Miami (OH) vs Minnesota

Gophers rally around their coach and pull out a win despite a shaky defensive performance. Too soon?

Final Score: Minnesota 31, Miami (OH) 20

Washington vs Nebraska

Huskers play inspired defense and send a message to all the haters.

Final Score: Nebraska 42, Washington 13

Arizona State vs Illinois

Shootout in Champaign as the Illini learn to win the close one.

Final Score: Illinois 37, Arizona State 35

Northwestern vs Army

Things don’t look good for Army as Wildcat QB Kain Colter continues to make Northwestern fans forget about the “Persa Strong” campaign.

Final Score: Northwester 28, Army 10

Ohio State vs Miami

Buckeyes face first real opponent of year in the [insert clever bowl game name here] as a returning Jacory Harris proves too much to handle.

Final Score: Ohio Sate 23, Miami 30

Agree? Disagree? Give us your thoughts; we’d love to hear them.
