Tonight we don't have any marquee games, but what we lack in quality we make up for in quantity! Hmm... that sounds like a lot of restaurants in my home town.  Anyway, tonight on ESPN we get UCF at Houston and we also get Florida Atlantic at Florida International but it's not televised.  Too bad because I really wanted to see the international version of Florida take on the Atlantic version.  Later tonight we get to see Arizona get crushed by No. 2 Oregon. And by "we" I mean you because I will not be able to stay up to watch a game that starts at 10:30.  It's also covered by ESPN.

On to the picks...

There was 1 loss that killed everyone.  You know who it is, I know who it is, everyone does.  Let's just nod in agreement and move on. Chad and I shared the best weekend with you guys.  Congrats!  Good comeback this week.  Not to toot my own horn but....

This week's Games

Sat 10/04/14 Ohio State @ Maryland College Park, Md. ABC 12:00 PM ET
Sat 10/04/14 Purdue @ Illinois Champaign, Ill. ESPN2 12:00 PM ET
Sat 10/04/14 North Texas @ Indiana Bloomington, Ind. BTN 2:30 PM ET
Sat 10/04/14 Wisconsin @ Northwestern Evanston, Ill. ESPN2 3:30 PM ET
Sat 10/04/14 Michigan @ Rutgers Piscataway, N.J. BTN 7:00 PM ET
Sat 10/04/14 Nebraska @ Michigan State East Lansing, Mich. ABC 8:00 PM ET

Really the only intriguing games on the slate are MSU/Brasky and to a lesser degree OSU/Maryland.  I think Northwestern blew their wad last week and turns back into 2014 Northwestern against Wisconsin.  Michigan? Well with all the crap going on in Ann Arbor and the general crappy play to this date, I don't see them giving BTPR a run for their money.
