    Big Ten football predictions for Week 6 of the 2016 season. Only two ranked teams are in action this week – No. 2 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan.


    Big Ten football kicks off at noon on Saturday with Iowa at Minnesota and Maryland at Penn State. Iowa and Minnesota are both coming off close losses in Week 5, while DJ Durkin brings the Terps into Happy Valley with a 4-0 record.

    After their upset over Michigan State in Bloomington last week, Indiana will look to play spoiler again when the Hoosiers travel to Columbus to take on Ohio State. The Hoosiers haven’t won in Columbus since 1987 and haven’t beaten the Buckeyes since 1988.

    Michigan will travel to Piscataway, where Rutgers, which is just 2-3 under first-year head coach Chris Ash, should offer an easier opponent compared to what the Wolverines saw from Wisconsin last week.

    Nebraska, Northwestern and Wisconsin are all on byes.

    Below is the complete Big Ten football schedule, as well as predictions for all of the games.
