BSD's Big Ten Challenge/Thursday Night Open thread Week 6

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

It's week 6 of the Big Ten Challenge and the Thursday night College football Open thread.

It's week 6 and we have a full slate of Big Ten games. All of the BSD writers have their picks in on time this week (for once *slowly glares at everyone*), so it should be an interesting week. Before we look at last week's results though, I'm obligated to tell you there's a game tonight between USC and Utah. I use the term "obligated" because it's at 9:00 PM on ESPN which means not too many will be watching. Still, you are all welcome to stop on by and give us your thoughts on the game... or on the state of college football... or your best Photoshop of Mark Emmert. In fact, please give us that last one.

There's some movement this week as four of us went a perfect 6-0. Michigan State and Minnesota were the only two games picked incorrectly.

Standings

W L Win % Total Games
Tim Aydin 43 9 82.7 52
Devon 42 10 80.8 52
Cari 41 11 78.8 52

BSD Readers 37 15 71.2 52
Jared 31 15 67.4 46
bscaff 35 17 67.3 52

Nick is slowly moving down the standings as are the BSD'ers. Come on guys!! You're gonna sit there and let ME pass you?!? I'm terrible at this. Tim, Devon, and Cari are at a logjam at the top and since we have one less game from now on this could get tough to rebound from if you're in the lower half.

This Week's Picks

Devon Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Michigan Ohio State
Jared Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Michigan Nebraska
Cari Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Purdue Ohio State
bscaff Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Purdue Ohio State
Dan Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Purdue Ohio State
Jeff Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Michigan Ohio State
Tim Aydin Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Michigan Ohio State
Mike Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Purdue Ohio State
Galen Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Michigan Ohio State
Nick Michigan State Penn State Wisconsin Michigan Nebraska

The only game that's a toss-up is the Purdue-Michigan game as everyone agrees that Sparty, the good guys, and the Cheesheads will win. Then there's the wishful thinkers waiting for Ohio State to lose one, while this may happen let's face it, we all hate OSU which means they're not losing anytime soon.

Time to step up BSD readers...

My Ballot Box
Michigan State @ Indiana




Northwestern @ Penn State




Illinois @ Wisconsin




Michigan @ Purdue




Nebraska @ Ohio State
