There are 10 games on the schedule this Saturday. And, at first glance, it’s not a great lineup of contests. No doubt, Michigan State’s visit to Notre Dame is the headliner. Lots of good storylines around the Spartans, who think they have found their offense. We shall see. Also, Big Ten play opens, with Purdue traveling to Wisconsin.
Three weeks are in the books. And this much I know: I don’t know what to make about a lot of teams.

Michigan State and Minnesota are most upwardly mobile; Penn State and Illinois took significant hits. Check it out.
Week 3 was a mixed bag for the Big Ten, which went a disappointing 7-5, including a 1-3 mark vs. the Pac-12. And, in some ways, it seemed fitting the end to a bizarre Saturday was capped by a finish to the Wisconsin-Arizona State game that still has my head spinning. Here is a look around the Big Ten’s third week of action.
Before we turn our attention to Week 4, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 3 Big Ten predictions. Brent Yarina led the way with a 10-2 clip to move into a first-place tie with Sean Merriman and Big Ten fans, who both went 9-3 to move to 30-6 on the season.
We’ve all had moments during football games where we see something great and exclaim, “Did you see that?” And these days our exclamations can be made across a variety of social media platforms. For some time now BTN.com has posted video highlights from BTN games in progress so that fans can share and relive these top moments soon after they happen. Now that experience is getting even better.
