Football Week 8 Bowl Projection Breakdown

The last two weeks have proven just how tough the Big Ten is this season. A week after Iowa lost to an unranked Purdue, Illinois went to Happy Valley and knocked off Penn State in a nine overtime not-so thriller. This week some of the bigger teams in the conference finally starting playing each other. Undefeated Michigan State hosts rival and fellow undefeated Michigan and Penn State travels to Ohio State to take on the Buckeyes under the lights.
