Redemption happens over time, and for Big Ten football which is just 1-10 against the rest of the big boys of college football there’s no time like the present to start down that road.
This week the conference takes on foes from the ACC, Pac-12 and SEC. While only one is against a ranked opponent (good luck Indiana), the rest can serve to buoy the middle of the conference stands. Having a winning weekend as a conference would also help matters in a big way.
National narratives aside, Big Ten teams have a lot of questions that need answering — both in a good and bad way. Will the Badgers passing game continue to evolve? Can Gary Nova stop throwing interceptions like their going out of style? Does Maryland have a run game outside of C.J. Brown?
Those are just some of a handful of questions that can be answered in Week 4 of the college football season around the Big Ten. Let’s take a look at the biggest games, give you our predictions and players to watch!
