Like everything else in 2020, the Big Ten is only slightly … excluded.
Northwest, a program that was 3-9 last season, is now undefeated and three wins away from probably facing Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game. Ohio quarterback Justin Fields – the hope of the Heisman Trophy, who has yet to catch a catch this season – threw three on Saturday afternoon in Bucky’s 42-35 win against No. 9 in Indiana. And Wisconsin quarterback Graham Merz – who hadn’t caught a set in his career – also had three on Saturday (and went crazy), accounting for four of the Dams’ five turnovers at a 17-7 loss to Northwest 19.
These two consecutive conference games revealed that while Bucky is still the team to win in the Big Ten, the Wildcats may simply be able to beat them. Both teams have three regular season games on schedule and should be big favorites in each.
As the college̵
The question is when – and if – they will collect all this.
