It's been a wild day in the Big Ten already today. Northwestern took down Nebraska by 2 points. Penn State survived Maryland and won by 1 point. Indiana trailed by 2 points to Michigan State in the 4th quarter until the wheels inevitably came off. It's Rutgers turn to give the "cream of the Big Ten crop" all it can handle under the bright lights and national TV audience.
