Another decent week of picks, which comes as no surprise given the Big Ten's shoddy competition. I hoped to be a little more accurate, and my lack of faith in an improved Minnesota team prevented perfection. Few foresaw the troubles Ohio U. gave Ohio State, and Penn State continues to exceed early season expectations.

Week 3 provides a much tougher test for Big Ten players, coaches and prognosticators. But first, here's a review of the picks from last week.

OHIO-OHIO STATE

MARSHALL-WISCONSIN

EASTERN ILLINOIS-ILLINOIS

EASTERN MICHIGAN-MICHIGAN STATE

MIAMI (OHIO)-MICHIGAN

FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL-IOWA

NORTHERN COLORADO-PURDUE

OREGON STATE-PENN STATE

MURRAY STATE-INDIANA

NORTHWESTERN-DUKE

MINNESOTA-BOWLING GREEN

Bye: None

Season record: 19-2
