ES predicts Big Ten openers in week 4

The ES as the early prognosticator for week 4, the opening week of Big Ten Play:
  • Indiana at Michigan (-18). Both teams sit at 3-0 and aren't as good as their record indicates, but Indiana's undefeated welcome to the Big Ten season will receive a slap in the face. scUM wins, though the ES will pray otherwise.
  • Illinois at Ohio State (-15). Illinois had a week off to focus for their stint at the Horseshoe, but injuries still mount... and their play is worse. These are two teams in different leagues. Give it to the Buckeyes. Illini shall get Zookified.
  • Minny at Northwestern (-1). This ain't Jim Brown's or Ernie Davis' Syracuse - yet they beat the Wildcats last week. That's enough to give this matchup to the Gophers.
  • Iowa at Joe Pa (-11). This game will be much closer than the bookies make it. But, the Old Man will come out ahead, he won't let the Hawkeyes win two years in a row.
  • ND (-7) at Purdon't. Don't is it - Here's a Purdue squad that was squashed by NIU, and ND is just a tad better. Give it, reluctantly, to the Leprechaun.
  • Michigan State at Wisconsin (-3). The Doctor won't go 1-3, and it's time for the Spartan nation to wake up. Wisky has had poor competition so far, and should be 3-0.
