Big Ten picks rewind: Week 10

By Adam Rittenberg

Think Nebraska felt good after the Hail Mary against Northwestern? Brian Bennett felt even better. He might have earned a St. Elmo dinner from me on that one play.

Bennett's Nebraska selection gives him a one-game lead in the season standings. My only condition if he wins: he must grow a mustache like Jordan Westerkamp.

Week 10/Season record

Adam Rittenberg: 4-2/61-13
Brian Bennett: 5-1/62-12

Here's one final look at the Week 10 predictions from us and our guest prognosticator,  Andrew Schout from Kansas City, Mo.

It's time to rewind ...

Illinois at Penn State
Wisconsin at Iowa
Ohio State at Purdue
Minnesota at Indiana
Michigan at Michigan State
Northwestern at Nebraska

You've seen how we fared. Now it's time to check on Andrew, who had a pretty nice weekend, as he got married and saw his Michigan State Spartans thump Michigan. Not too shabby.

Penn State 34, Illinois 24
Wisconsin 24, Iowa 17
Ohio State 48, Purdue 10
Indiana 41, Minnesota 38
Michigan State 27, Michigan 16
Nebraska 26, Northwestern 20

Andrew's picks mirrored Brian's, so he also went 5-1. Like ours, Andrew's score predictions need a little work, although he finished strong with the Nebraska-Northwestern one. If he had flipped Minnesota and Indiana he would have had a perfect week of picks.
