    Week 13 Big Ten Recap

    There were no surprises with Ohio State and Wisconsin as both teams took care of business as expected. Michigan State’s performance was probably the best of the weekend in the Big Ten. The Spartans dominated both lines of scrimmage on the road in Happy Valley. Lucky for the Spartans, Beano Cook had picked Penn State as well as Alabama and Oklahoma State. Sorry Beano!

    Except for Illinois, the regular season is over for Big Ten Teams. Bowl games await for the top 8 teams. Coming into the season, I though the Big Ten was as good as it’s been in some time. Although Iowa’s season was clearly a disappointment, I think it says a lot about the talent level in the Big Ten. It ran deep this year. Illinois improved greatly. Michigan’s offense was better. Teams like Purdue and Indiana who were expected to be ok were crushed all year. I think the conference will be underestimated again this year and the teams will use that to their advantage during Bowl Season.
