Actually I need to change that up a little, move the Bucks up to 3rd. I have Michigan losing at Wisconsin, Penn State losing at Michigan, Ohio State losing at Penn State and at Michigan, and Wisconsin losing at Penn State and at Ohio State. Pretty scary that 5 teams could easily win 10 games from the Big Ten. Just shows the giant divide between the top four and the other six. It's hard to count Iowa since they only PSU and Wisconsin from the upper echelon and will probably lose both games.

I think the Buckeyes have the talent to defend their Big Ten title, especially if they gain a lot of momentum from an 8-0 start. But when they go into Happy Valley they will be playing a caliber of team that they won't have seen yet. Over their first eight games Purdue is probably the biggest "challenge" for them. Penn State, Wisconsin, and Michigan are all much better teams than the Boilermakers and the Buckeyes have to face 2 of those 3 on the road.
