Game Day Predictions!
Week 5 2012
Okay, let's start with Bill from BILL'S BIG 10 CORNER and his game day predictions....
Minnesota at Iowa (-7) Minnesota has looked better than Iowa so far so I will take Minnesota and the points.
Penn St at Illinois (-1.5) Again, I’ll take the road team and the points.
Indiana at NW (-10.5) Indiana was off last week, but not enough NW to cover.
Wisconsin at Nebraska (-11.5) Wisconsin has not covered yet this year and Neby could be the best team in the Big 10 (take the Huskers).
Game of the week:
Ohio State at Michigan St (-2.5) Wow, I don’t know what to make of this game. I’ll say Michigan St pulls it together and wins by more than 2.5 at home.
Looking Forward (next week):Nebraska at Ohio State
Now see what Wisconsin Steve has to say about the WISCONSIN Badgers this weekend...
BEVO jr with his *BIG 12* TEXAS team has his thoughts on the game with Oklahoma State.....
HOOK ‘EM HORNS!
Now moving back to the
Turnkey Tim with IOWA, whatch ya got on this week's game...
What does Iowa bring to the table? Iowa brings a good offensive line and the addition of a bulldozer that rushes for over 200 yards a game (Mark Wiesman). If Iowa can slow the game down and rush the ball and take advantage of the shots it will have in the passing game, then this will be a close game. Minnesota likes to bring the pressure and blitz a lot, especially against a team like Iowa that struggles in the passing game. Vandenberg has a tendency to stare down receivers and not find the open receiver. I look for both teams to be very fired up tomorrow and it should be a great game atmosphere, good weather, great game day. The only thing I don't understand is what does Vegas know that we don't.
They have Iowa by 7.
When I analyze the game, what I come up with is Minnesota 20 - Iowa 16. I hope I'm wrong. GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Black and Gold Girl with IOWA just sent in her short but sweet prediction. She says...
It kills me to say this, but…Minnesota by ten.
I was hoping we would hear from Ace of the MINNESOTA Gophers and we did.
Waz up Ace, I know you're on some boat somewhere in the Pacific Northwest but something more important than fun and sun and fish and beverages is your prediction of the Minnestoa-Iowa game....Ace writes in....
Okay, this is Angie's aside....Nagurski of which Ace talks about, was a rather formidable player in his day. Here's the link to Wikipedia on this rather interesting player....click here for Nagurski
More predictions will be posted as they come in!
