Big Ten picks rewind: Week 13

By Brian Bennett

Our Week 13 predictions might have seemed a bit boring, as Adam and I picked the same teams to win each game. But there's nothing boring about perfection, and we each crushed it by going 6-0.

But that also meant there was no movement in our season picks contest, as we remain tied with one week to go. Who will finish strong and eat like a champion on the other's dime in Indianapolis next weekend?

Week 13/Season record

Adam Rittenberg: 6-0, 74-14
Brian Bennett: 6-0, 74-14

Here is one last look at the Week 13 predictions from us and guest picker Ali Tomek from Evanston, Ill.

It's rewind time ...

Michigan State at Northwestern
Michigan at Iowa
Illinois at Purdue
Wisconsin at Minnesota

Indiana at Ohio State
Nebraska at Penn State

You've seen our predictions. Now it's time to check on how Ali fared:

Michigan State 27, Northwestern 10
Michigan 17, Iowa 13
Illinois 35, Purdue 17
Wisconsin 31, Minnesota 17
Ohio State 56, Indiana 14
Nebraska 24, Penn State 17

A 5-1 record is nothing to sneeze at, and Ali had some score nice picks. But the Michigan-Iowa game hurt. Hey, only a select few of us can be perfect.

We've already got our guest picker lined up for the final week. Thanks to all of you for your great interest and responses on that all season long.
