Before we turn our attention to Week 9, it's time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 8 Big Ten game predictions.
Ohio State’s national title hopes took a big blow Saturday night amid a wall of sound and fury at Penn State. The No. 2 Buckeyes’ 24-21 loss at unranked Penn State makes the program’s path to the playoff more difficult—and less of a sure thing.
