Before we turn our attention to Week 3, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 2 Big Ten game predictions. Like Big Ten teams, Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Big Ten fans all went 12-2, missing the same two games: Western Michigan at Northwestern and Wisconsin vs. LSU.

Week 2 was all about the blowouts with five teams scored over 50 points as Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Rutgers and Wisconsin all hung at least half-a-hundred on opponents in easy wins.
