Big Ten Football Schedule, Predictions – Week 9

<iframe src="" width="640" height="360" style="border:0"></iframe>

Schedule and previews for all Big Ten football games in Week 9 of the 2016 season. Michigan and Michigan State meet in their annual rivalry game, while Nebraska travels to Wisconsin in a Western division clash. 

The Wolverines and Spartans will take center stage this weekend as they renew their rivalry in East Lansing. The battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy has been decidedly one sided the last several years, with Michigan State winning seven of the last eight meetings. However, Michigan comes into the game as a heavy favorite and will surely have last season’s heart-breaking loss in the back of its mind when taking the field Saturday.

The primetime showdown in the Big Ten comes Saturday night when Wisconsin plays host to an undefeated Nebraska team. The Badgers have won three in a row against the Cornhuskers, including their 70-31 win in the Big Ten Championship game four years ago, and last lost to Nebraska in Madison in 1966. A win for the Cornhuskers would all but lock up West division for the Cornhuskers, while a Badgers victory would open it up to a five team race over the last four games.

Elsewhere in Big Ten action, Ohio State will welcome in Northwestern as the Buckeyes look to put their upset at the hands of Penn State behind them with a win over the Wildcats. Northwestern will be seeking its first win in Columbus since 1971.

Below is the entire schedule of Week 9 Big Ten football games, as well as predictions for each game.
