A lot of matchups look like toss ups. Northwestern should be able to easily get Boston College. I think North Carolina will easily get Illinois, and Louisville probably gets Ohio St, but outside of that the rest of the games could go either way.

I think Nebraska at home should be able to handle Duke. Rutgers over Virginia seems fairly safe.

Syracuse may join the unranked teams after their recent loss to a Green Bay team that is mediocre this year.

Could the BIG go 5-0 on the first night? 4 in the books with Iowa leading Clemson at the half.

Just watched MI win in OT. Looks like B1G wins the challenge for first time.

Interesting B1G 9-5 dominance. And Maryland probably would have won against some other team besides NCSU.

I wonder if as many as 10 B1G teams might be in the hunt for a playoff berth this year.
