Josh Turel's Big Ten Predictions

Last Week Turel was 3-2 in his Big Ten calls; how will he do this week?

Indiana (3-0, 0-0) at Wisconsin (4-0, 1-0)
Wisconsin keeps their undefeated season going with a win over Indiana, who despite its record has looked sloppy at times.
Wisconsin: 31, Indiana: 10

Minnesota (4-0, 1-0) at Penn State (4-0, 1-0)
Penn State has a good enough run defense to at least slow down Laurence Maroney but the Gophers offense is too much for Joe Pa.
Minnesota: 27, Penn State: 17

Illinois (2-2, 0-1) at Iowa (2-2, 0-1)
Iowa really needs to hammer someone to get its confidence back up and the Fighting Illini are just what the doctor ordered.
Iowa: 31, Illinois: 17

Notre Dame (3-1) at Purdue 2-1, 0-1)
Should be an excellent match-up here between two very good offenses; Purdue has home field advantage and a better defense, which should be good enough for a Boilermaker victory.
Purdue: 31, Notre Dame: 27

Michigan (2-2, 0-1) at Michigan State 4-0, 1-0)
Well, well here we are. I looked at Michigan State's offense on film and offer my apology to John L. Smith for stealing half his playbook for my future coaching career. This offense is awesome folks, well thought out and executed by Stanton. Their run game has a different blend with each back and the offensive line isn't bad. The Spartan defense is high-roller; they gamble a lot but can make plays with that aggressiveness. Chad Henne is going to have to win this game for Michigan. U-M should be able to run well but the offense is going to need to put up a lot of points. I see MSU taking this game unless Mario can repeat what Braylon did last year, or unless Drew Stanton gets knocked out again.
Little Brother: 35, Michigan: 24
