    September 26, 2016

    Big Ten football picks and spreads for Week 13. Can the Michigan Wolverines hand the Ohio State Buckeyes their second straight loss, or will Urban Meyer find a backdoor way into the Big Ten title game with a win and Michigan State loss? Scroll down for this week’s Big Ten picks.


    Iowa vs. Nebraska


    Date
    : Friday, November 27

    Kickoff
    : 3:30 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Memorial Stadium

    The undefeated Hawkeyes are the surprise team of the 2015 season and two wins away from a berth in the College Football Playoff. Next up are the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Iowa lives on the run, but will face a top 10 rushing defense from Nebraska. Add in the home crowd and you have the recipe for a Huskers upset.


    Pick: Nebraska


    Spread: Iowa -2.5

    Ohio State vs. Michigan


    Date
    : Saturday, November 28

    Kickoff
    : 12:00 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Michigan Stadium

    This game really needs no introduction. With a little help, both teams still could get into the Big Ten Championship Game and each has an outside shot at the College Football Playoff. Yes, Michigan has two losses, but crazier things have happened. Ohio State will play energized after its first loss in 24 games, and running back Ezekiel Elliott will break out for a big day. Urban Meyer holds off Jim Harbaugh for at least this year. 


    Pick: Ohio State


    Spread: Michigan -2

    Indiana vs. Purdue


    Date
    : Saturday, November 28

    Kickoff
    : 12:00 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Ross-Ade Stadium

    Indiana is one victory away from a bowl berth. There aren’t many better teams to face in that situation than Purdue. The Hoosiers secure their sixth win in a high-scoring affair.


    Pick: Indiana


    Spread: Indiana -7

    Date
    : Saturday, November 28

    Kickoff
    : 12:00 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : High Point Solutions Stadium

    A battle between the Big Ten’s newest members takes place in Piscataway, as both teams will be playing their season finale. The Terrapins are 2-9 and the Scarlet Knights are 4-7. Rutgers has played better than Maryland this season and will continue to do so. 


    Pick: Rutgers


    Spread: Maryland -1

    Michigan State vs. Penn State


    Date: Saturday, November 28

    Kickoff
    : 3:30 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Spartan Stadium

    Can the Spartans put the big win against Ohio State behind them and focus on the Nittany Lions? Coach Mark Dantonio will make sure of that. The Spartans won with tough defense last week, and will put pressure on Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg all day long. Michigan State punches its ticket to the Big Ten Championship Game in a close one.


    Pick: Michigan State


    Spread: Michigan State -11

    Wisconsin vs. Minnesota


    Date
    : Saturday, November 28

    Kickoff
    : 3:30 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : TCF Bank Stadium

    The Badgers will need to put the loss to Northwestern in the past and focus on the Gophers in the battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe. The Wisconsin defense has been solid, but the offense has been sputtering. It’s been a long time since Minnesota has tasted victory in this rivalry. That changes on Saturday. 


    Pick: Minnesota


    Spread: Wisconsin -3

    Northwestern vs. Illinois

    : Saturday, November 28

    Kickoff
    : 3:30 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Soldier Field

    Northwestern is finding ways to win. Illinois has lost five of its last sixth, with the only win coming against Purdue. The Wildcats defense will once again be the difference. 


    Pick: Northwestern


    Spread: Northwestern -3.5
