My apologies for accidentally including Western Illinois @ Northwestern in last week’s guide. I hope I didn’t screw up anyone’s big party. The Buckeyes are off this week, so we’ll just be enjoying watching everyone else (hopefully) crash and burn.
Eastern Michigan @ Michigan State. Noon, Big Ten Network.
Maryland @ Syracuse. 12:30p, ESPN3 (online)/ACC Network (is that a thing?)
Utah @ Michigan. 3:30p, ABC/ESPN2.
The Big Ten is in a tailspin right now, so we might actually be forced to do the unthinkable this week: cheer for Utah, but be okay with it if they lose. (Sorry, SOS apologists, that’s as far as I’m willing to go.) Utah may not be a big name Pac-12 team like Oregon or Stanford, but they are 2-0 and the Big Ten really just needs any win over a decent major-conference opponent.
Rutgers @ Navy. 3:30p, CBS Sports Network.
UMass @ Penn State. 4:00p, Big Ten Network.
Texas State @ Illinois. 4:00p, ESPN News.
San Jose State @ Minnesota. 4:00p, Big Ten Network.
Indiana @ Missouri. 4:00p, SEC Network.
I mean, who knows, right?
Miami (OH) @ Cincinnati. 7:00p, CBS Sports Network.
OTHER BIG TEN TEAMS

Southern Illinois @ Purdue. Noon, Big Ten Network.
Western Illinois @ Northwestern. Noon, ESPN News.

The Hurricanes are 2-1, so a win here is okay, but a loss is pretty much disastrous for the Big Ten. Guess which one’s going to happen!
