The home teams did pretty well this week, going 7-5. There were a couple surprises this week:

 

  • Minnesota lost at Nebraska on Wednesday. Minnesota was ranked for much of the season, and Nebraska is mediocre at best.
  • Penn State won at Northwestern on Thursday. Is wasn’t clear that PSU would win a single game in the Big Ten this season, then they won 2 of them.
