How did we do? Big Ten Week 2 predictions revisited

Before we turn our complete attention to Week 3, it’s time to look back at how we did with our Week 2 predictions.

See the five biggest things I learned about the Big Ten on Saturday. 1. Wisconsin RB Montee Ball’s Heisman dreams may be over following a moribund effort in a 10-7 loss at Oregon State. Ball ran
