BSD Big Ten Pick'em Challenge/Thursday Night Open Thread: Week 2

New, 14 comments

Week 2 of the BSD Big Ten Challenge is upon and we get to see the University of Texas at San Antonio! That's right Arizona travels to the Alamodome to take on the Roadrunners of UTSA! Join us for all the fun in our Thursday Night open thread. The game starts at 8:00 PM and can be seen on FOX Sports 1.

Full disclosure: I had to look UTSA up because I've never heard of them.  Does that make me a bad football fan?  If so... meh.  On to the results and picks for this week...

Congrats to Nick P, and Tim on a perfect week, but no one really did bad.  Northwestern got almost all of us--all but 3 prognosticators, and that's including you, loyal reader.

For week 2 there's a lot of good match-ups!  Sparty has a tough road game at in Eugene, Michigan has to travel to take on he Domers and Ohio State gets a quality opponent although at home.  Had the Buckeyes had to travel to play Virginia Tech, I probably would have picked the Hokies.

You can see the goodness by the doubt in our panel.  The panelists aren't sure about MSU, Michigan and Purdue.  Even Northwestern and Illinois cause trepidation.  Of course no one picked against the good guys this week.  *throws angry glare in Bill's direction*
