B1G Week 3 Preview

Recommended Posts

Week 3 in the B1G has 10 teams in action including the first in-conference games of the season.

 

B1G Game of the Week:  Michigan (1-1) at Rutgers (2-0)* (+19.5)

Rutgers is off to a great start on the season but will face a different level of competition as the Wolverines come to town on Saturday.  Rutgers has looked impressive in their 2 wins outscoring their opponents 69-19. Their offensive line will need to protect Freshman QB Omari Ricks-Hargrove against a talented Michigan defensive line if the offense is to continue its early success.  Michigan got their first win vs Vandy last week and will look to carry that momentum into New Jersey. The Wolverines have plenty of talent at the skill positions and the offense will look to have success against the Scarlet Knights defense. Rutgers has talent...but Michigan has more.  Expect the Wolverines to win by 2 scores.

 

Prediction:  Michigan 31 Rugters 20

 

Conference Game:  Wisconsin (0-2) at Maryland (1-0)* (-9.0)

Maryland is expected to compete for the B1G East and would love to start conference play with a win over the Badgers.  Wisconsin is looking to get their first win after losses to 2 quality teams. Expect the Terps offense to outplay the Badgers offense and get the win.

 

Prediction:  Maryland 23 Wisconsin 17

 

Rivalry Game:  #20 Penn State (0-1) at Pittsburgh (1-0) (+4.5)

Penn State is coming off 2 bye weeks and looking to get their first win in Pittsburgh against the Panthers.  The Nittany Lions lost a close game to top-ranked TCU while Pitt’s win came against Temple. Both teams have solid run games and defenses.  Give Penn State the slight advantage with their passing game.

 

Prediction:  Penn State 27  Pittsburgh 24

 

Best of the Rest:  Illinois (1-0) at Virginia (2-0) (+2.0)

Illinois and Virginia both quality teams looking to break into the top 25.  Virginia has the home field advantage but Illinois has the advantage in the trenches and pulls off a close win.

 

Prediction:  Illinois 28 Virginia 27

 

Central Michigan (0-1) at Michigan State (0-1) (-8.5) - The Spartans came up short against LSU last week and now face Chippewas from up north.  Central Michigan is no push over but expect Sparty to get their first win of the season by 10.

 

UCF (1-1) at Nebraska (0-2) (+8.5) - The Cornhuskers face another quality team as UCF comes to Lincoln.  The defense is going to need to play better to get their first win. Unfortunately this is not that week.  UCF by a touchdown.

 

Georgia Southern (1-0) at Minnesota (1-0) (-27.5) - The Gophers should be tested by the Eagles from the Sunbelt.  But look for Minnesota to pull away in the second half and set up an intriguing matchup with Northwestern next week.

 

Youngstown State (0-1) at Northwestern (1-0) (N/A) - Another FCS opponent for the Wildcats.  They should be able to use this as a tune up before their B1G season opener next week against Minnesota.


 

On Bye: Indiana (2-0), Ohio State (2-0), Iowa (2-0), Purdue (2-0)
