Week 8 features all 14 teams in action in seven games. And all eyes will be on two games, one from each division that will go a long way in shaping the races: Ohio State at Penn State in the East and Wisconsin at Iowa in the West.
The headline act Saturday is No. 2 Ohio State’s trip to No. 8 Wisconsin. In fact, depending on how things play out, this could be a preview of the Big Ten title game. And it also will feature two standout defenses. The schools arguably have been the best in their divisions in recent years. The Buckeyes have won the last four meetings and seven of eight. The last Badger win was in Madison in 2010—two coaches ago. The Buckeyes won the last time they visited Camp Randall Stadium, taking a 21-14 decision in 2012. The schools last played in 2014
Week 6 is highlighted by the battle for iconic Floyd of Rosedale between Iowa and Minnesota. There also is an interesting non-league game, with BYU playing at Michigan State. And Ohio State, Michigan and Maryland look to continue to roll.
