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.
