Game of the Year opener:
1. Winner of Ohio State at Minnesota - the Buckeyes (30-2 over past 4 years), but will have a rookie QB heading to season opener on road against QB Tanner Morgan and the Gophers (15-19 under PJ Fleck).
Well, the Ireland game was scratched, but top showdown in Week 1 is actually in Madison, right?
2. Winner of Penn State (24-12) at Wisconsin (24-9), last Badger win in series was blowout in Madison ten years ago.
3. Winner of Indiana at Iowa is expected to be a Top 25 showdown in opener.
4. Michigan State at Northwestern, considering how the Wildcats open 2021? The Wildcats have lost this game 2 out last 3 seasons, but have been to Indianapolis 2 out of last 3 years, as well.
Top 5 heading into 2021 are Ohio State of course, then Wisconsin, Iowa/Indiana and Penn State. Some give love to Northwestern and Minnesota in Top 25/30 to kickoff 2021.
Illinois at Nebraska will kickoff B1G West in 2021.
Instant momentum and hype to the Victor.
Illinois hosts Wisconsin for Homecoming. Illini shocked the Badgers in 2019, 24-23 win, as QB Brandon Peters takes a step forward.
While Adrian Martinez enters the year again as Scott Frost's #1 for four straight seasons. What will the season bring?
