Big Ten Conference Call: Week Six Analysis and Final Score Predictions

By HD Handshoe

These are my Big Ten predictions for week six. In the end, they may not all be right, but they are nonetheless fearless...

Miami (OH) @ Northwestern

Miami is 0-5, and the Wildcats will drop them to 0-6. NW's QB Mike Kafka is undervalued.

NW 38 - Miami (OH) 10

Eastern Illinois @ Penn State

It has to be embarrassing to be a PSU fan during OOC games. PSU should win by 35 plus.

Penn State 48 - E.Illinois 6

Purdue @ Minnesota

The Boilermakers have a decent QB in Joey Elliot and a very good RB in Ralph Bolden, but they continue to find ways to lose. This one could be close, but I'll take Minnesota, and QB Adam Weber and his favorite target Eric Decker at home.

Minnesota 27 - Purdue 20

Michigan State @ Illinois

To say the Spartans have been hot and cold is true, which must mean the under-achieving Illini have been freezer burnt. Juice Williams had not scored a single touchdown until last week, and coach Ron Zook's seat is heating up fast. Unless Sparty suffers from a letdown after last weeks overtime thriller and win over then No. 22 Michigan, I see more misery and an even hotter seat for the Zooker.

Michigan State 28 - Illinois 20

Indiana @ Virginia

IU nearly upset Michigan two weeks ago and they weren't completely horrible against Ohio State, but for no other reason than the fact that William and Mary beat Virginia at home, I have to pick Indiana in this game.

Indiana 24 - Virginia 20

Michigan @ Iowa

Michigan has won six of seven in Iowa City and the Hawkeyes have not looked great at home against the likes of Northern Illinois and Arkansas State. I hate to ever pick Michigan, but I think their loss last week to the Spartans was unfortunate for Iowa, because UM will come out fired up, and they actually have a decent offense. I just hope their "D" doesn't keep stinking it up, or my prediction will be shot down like a squirrel in Alabama.

Michigan 34 - Iowa 31

Wisconsin @ Ohio State

I already wrote an in-depth, and historical article on the Buckeyes game vs. the Badgers this week, including my score prediction, which can be read here.
