Between OSU, ND and UM who has a 'scare' or possibly loses? I could easily see either OSU or ND have some issues defending those attacks. I think OSU probably has the least to worry about - but I'm definitely not sold on ND. UM should have enough pent up aggression to smack Western in the mouth - assuming they can execute on both sides of the ball and win the turnover battle...
Games of Interest - UM, OSU, ND
Not that we cannot win, especially in A2, but I would not put money on it. Next year, we will be roasting buckeyes (and I'm not talking about those nut things).
W.r.t. ND and MSU, they are both beatable. ND will have a good offense and questionable defense. MSU will have a good defense and questionable offense (i.e. how many games would MSU have won last year without Ringer?). I think we will win at least 2 and probably 3 out of 5 against ND, MSU, IA, WISC and IL. So, take your pick.
