  • This week's Big 10 conference slate features an unusual non-conference match up and a battle of legendary teams at Ann Arbor.
    Most of the time, non-conference action is played out in the first few weeks of the season. Rarely, a BCS team will step out of conference during their in-conference schedule, but usually it's just to face a lower tier team.
    Such will not be the case when top 25 rated Wisconsin plays host to BYU in a 2:30 p.m. contest at Camp Randall.
    BYU, 6-2, is coming off a win over Boise State, while Wisconsin, 6-2, beat Iowa last week.
    Turning to the rest of the conference, Nebraska, 6-2, will play at the Big House against Michigan, 6-2. The Huskers are coming off a game against Northwestern where they won the contest on a desperation heave as time expired. Michigan will be looking to rid itself of the negative memories associated with last week's beat down at the hands of Michigan State. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.
    Other Big 10 match ups are:
    Iowa at Purdue, 11 a.m.
    Penn State at Minnesota, 11 a.m.
    Illinois at Indiana, 2:30 p.m.
