It is no question that football and basketball rule the world of college athletics. Ohio State is considered a “top-notch” national powerhouse when it comes to college football, and the same can be said about Michigan State when talking about college hoops.
This is the first Saturday that features exclusively Big Ten games, with five on the slate. All eyes will be on Evanston, Ill., where a national TV audience will tune in for the Ohio State at Northwestern game.
Every week during the 2013 football season, BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart, Brent Yarina, Sean Merriman and hoops analyst Stephen Bardo, a huge football fan, make their Big Ten picks. We also provide polls for Big Ten fans to select their winners.
