I believe I predicted 8 wins before the season. I think 9 regular season wins is very doable now.
Still think 12-0. Thought Penn State would take step back with a lot of early draft, transfer guys but they look good so far. Thought Wisconsin would take step back, but they have looked good. Thought Maryland would be worse than they have been. Still taking a pass on College Football Playoffs in exchange for Rose Bowl bid.
As of right now, Minnesota should be favored by 9.6 against Nebraska, 8.8 against Maryland, and 11.1 against Northwestern.Hoped they would win six, now they have a shot at eight (or nine with a bowl win). Penn State, Wisconsin and Iowa will be very tough opponents - and Maryland and Northwestern just a shade behind them. Nebraska is a toss up.
