Minnesota Football: Big Ten Picks—Week 5

Here we go again

This week I nailed by two non-conference picks...and went 3-3 in the Big Ten. I’ll take it.

You can see my Week 5 picks below. For the FOURTH week in a row there are only six Big Ten games this week as Covid currently has the edge on Ohio State for the most likely team to make the CFP moving to 4-0 on the year with a pair of wins over Wisconsin and Maryland each. Michigan State gets the unintentional bye week this week.

No upset picks this week because 2020 but I just couldn’t...so I have Ohio State beating Indiana and Wisconsin beating Northwestern. I couldn’t even convince myself to take Rutgers over Michigan or Illinois over Nebraska.

In my two non-Big Ten picks of the week I’m taking Oklahoma State to beat Oklahoma in Bedlam and in the battle for the Boot I’m taking Arkansas over LSU. Talk about things I’d be committed for picking 6 months ago.

Season Record 15-15 (13-11 in Big Ten predictions)

Come back next week and see how I did in Week 5 and what my picks are for Week 6.
