Biggest game: Michigan at Ohio State, Nov. 26
Player to always watch: Michigan's Jabrill Peppers, who might line up anywhere on the field, in the stands, or at your tailgate.
Team nobody wants to play: The Indiana mayhem vortex, as always
Coach who really needs wins: Things could go south for James Franklin or Tracy Claeys, but Purdue's Darrell Hazell leads this list.
Don't be surprised if ... The Huskers up and win the West.
The hype train is charging down the tracks. Is Jim Harbaugh's team ready?
Read about why you shouldn't count Mark Dantonio's Spartans out of the Big Ten race:
Upside! And anxiety! James Franklin's Nittany Lions have a long way to go in this division.
Making one fewer mistake per game could equal a Big Ten West championship.
Expect the Badgers to improve on the field, but still fall short of their recent standard.
2015 was total magic. Don't expect it to happen again. (But the Hawkeyes could still win the West!)
Can Pat Fitzgerald take the Wildcats from lucky to just plain good?
More amazing offense, confounding defense, and chaotic finishes? LOL yeah!
Finally rebuilding after a decade of sadness? At least the roster's got athletes.
