The Big Ten football team is running off in a condensed season and we barely recognize things.
In the first week, Iowa, Penn State University, and Michigan State University were defeated (all in the Big Ten Championship games over the last five years). Purdue, Indiana, and Rutgers have risen to become one of the winners. I can’t wait to see what the second week offers.
The USA TODAY network beatwriter, which covers the entire conference team, offers all game choices for the season against spreads.
