Next week's Big Ten games

  • October 13, 2012 - 10:40 PM

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS

MICHIGAN STATE AT NO. 25 MICHIGAN

Time, TV TBA, Saturday

• The Spartans were the preseason Big Ten title favorites, but now they're 1-2 in the conference and pretty much relegated to being a spoiler in the Legends Division race. They could embrace that role by beating the Wolverines for the fifth consecutive time, but a statistical correction in the series seems more likely.

NEBRASKA AT NORTHWESTERN

Time, TV TBA, Saturday

• Loser of this game will have two Big Ten losses and little chance to make the conference title game. Which Huskers team will show up: the one that rolled Wisconsin or the one that fell hard to Ohio State?

SATURDAY'S OTHER GAMES

• Gophers at Wisconsin, 11 a.m., ESPNU

• Purdue at No. 8 Ohio State, time, TV TBA

• Penn State at Iowa, 7 p.m., BTN

Nonconference

• Indiana at Navy, 2:30 p.m., CBS Sports Net.
