Hoosier Daddy?

The last undefeated team in the Big Ten is... Indiana?!?! The Hoosiers went on the road and dominated Wisconsin en route to a 31-17 win.

Wegrets as QBs Wheeled Out For Season

Jets QB Erik Wegert severely ruptured his PCL on TNF, and Titans QB Thomas Wheeler tore his rotator cuff Sunday, significantly hurting the hopes of both teams for 2023.

Horned Frogs SteAMRALled

#6 Oklahoma State took it to TCU, going up 28-7 at halftime and winning 38-14. RB Amral Brown came up huge with 142 rushing yards and 2 TD.

100-yard Curse Blackballed

The Colts hadn't had a 100-yard rushing game since Tony Peaks posted 150 and 2 TD in Week 17 of 2018. 2 games of JB Blacknall later, a 5-year drought is broken.

Catch Or No Catch?

Bengals WR Adrian Jankowski was furious that this catch on MNF didn't count, and it led to a tantrum and fine. Was it a catch? Depends on the perspective.

Featured game - #4 LSU (0-0) at Michigan State (0-0) (+8.5)

401123389.png?templateId=espn.com.share.

Both LSU and Michigan State kick of their 2023 seasons Saturday night in East Lansing.  The Tigers come in ranked #4 in the latest poll and have one of the top defenses in the nation.  Michigan State will need QB Isaac Tyson to play his best to have any chance of putting up some points on the LSU defense.  The other matchup to watch is the LSU offensive line vs the Spartans defensive line. Both have talent and whoever can control the trenches will go a long way in deciding the outcome of this game.

 

Prediction:  LSU 20 Michigan St 10

 

Rivalry games - Indiana (1-0) at Kentucky (0-1) (-2); Iowa State (1-0) at Iowa (1-0) (E)

 

There are two rivalry games worth watching this weekend.  First Indiana will cross the border to take on Kentucky. Kentucky lost their Week 1 home opener in a close game vs Toledo while Indiana won their season home opener easily over Texas State.  This looks to be a close game with turnovers likely to play a deciding role.

 

Prediction:  Indiana 31 Kentucky  27

 

Iowa State and Iowa will also meet this week in the annual Cy-Hawk rivalry game.  Both teams are coming off wins in week 1 and this looks to be a very competitive game.  The key to this matchup will likely be who can contain the other team’s offense and who can win on third down and turnovers

 

Prediction:  Iowa 24 Iowa State 23

 

Other games of interest:

Akron (1-0) at #16 Ohio State (1-0) (-24) - the top ranked team in the B1G hosts in-state Akron.  Expect the Buckeyes to roll in this one.

 

Florida International (0-1) at Illinois (0-0) (-18) - Season opener for Illinois.  A win will push them closer to breaking into the Top 25.

 

San Diego State (0-1) at Wisconsin (0-1) (+11.5) - Both teams looking looking to bounce back from loses.  Wisconsin will need a big performance from their defense to have a chance in this one.

 

Vanderbilt (1-0) at Michigan (0-1) (-11) - The Wolverines are back in action after having a bye last week and are looking for their first victory of the season - which we expect them to get.

 

Miami (OH) (0-1) at Rutgers (1-0) (-8.5) - Can the Scarlet Knights start the season 2-0?  Our magic 8 ball says “Signs point to yes”.

 

And the rest:

Delaware (1-0) at Purdue (1-0) - Delaware is no push over so Purdue better come ready to play - which we totally expect they will.

 

North Dakota (1-0) at Northwestern (0-0) - Opener for Northwestern vs a FCS opponent.  Expect the Wildcats to start the season with a W.

 

On Bye:  Maryland (1-0), Penn State (0-1), Minnesota (1-0), Nebraska (0-2)
