For a number of years, the BIG 10 Conference was a little down on its luck, but things began to change when Urban Meyer brought Ohio State back to prominence. The 2014 season was a big one for a number of teams in the conference, but it’s fair to say that 2015 proved to be a bit of a step in the wrong direction. There will be a number of teams looking to change that this year, and BIG 10 teams have a tough slate of games, both in conference, and out. What follows is just a small list of some of the best of those match-ups. In order to keep up to date with the latest NCAA football odds, be sure to check into MyBookie.ag on a regular basis.
BIG 10 Most Anticipated Conference Matches Winning Favorites
LSU Vs Wisconsin – Sept 3
Week 1 of the college football season is jam packed with amazing match-ups, and Wisconsin Badgers will be looking to build on their strong showing last season with a tough opening game against a very good SEC foe. This is a great looking game in its own right, but when you add in the fact that the game will be played at Lambeau Field, you are left with a match-up that has to be considered a must watch.
Ohio State at Oklahoma – Sept 17
The Buckeyes will be looking to bounce back after a bit of a disappointing year in 2015, and this one will certainly be a big test for them. Oklahoma have a ton of starters coming back for 2016, and they are considered by many to be one of the dark horse online college football betting picks for the coming season. Whoever wins this one is going to be sure to impress the members of the Playoff Committee.
Michigan at Michigan State – Oct 29
This match-up in 2015 ended up delivering one of the most gut-wrenching endings to a game that any football fan has ever seen, and it’s one that must still give Jim Harbaugh nightmares. The Wolverines were up 23-21 with just 10 seconds left on the clock. All they had to do was punt away the ball to essentially end the game, but the whole thing was botched, and the Spartans ended up pouncing on the ball in the end zone to steal the game. From the moment the final whist blew on that game, fans of both teams have been anticipating the next meeting.
Michigan at Ohio State – Nov 26
Other than the game mentioned previously, this may be the most highly anticipated game on the BIG 10 schedule. You have two high profile coaches going head to head, which is always fun, but you also have a Michigan team looking to get some revenge after a bit of a thumping at the hands of the Buckeyes last year. Jim Harbaugh has a lot of his starters returning, and it is expected that Michigan are going to take another step forward this year. This might well be the game that cements a playoff spot for the winner.
