Help Me Pick One Away Game to Attend this Year?

The home schedule is not great this year, but Wisco and PSU might be good. 

But, this year there are 3 really good road games and I was thinking of picking one, but choosing is tough.  What do you think?

 

Oct. 29 - MSU

Pros: Top 20 opponent, close to Metro Detroit (where I live), still not too cold in Oct., halloween tailgating, best chance of victory of the 3 games.

Cons:  Too many overly drunk fans, nothing much to do in EL if you are not a college student, getting around usually requires driving, bland stadium experience, high ticket prices becuase of proximity.

Nov. 12 - Iowa

Pros: Top 20 opponent, Kinnick Stadium history and experience, mostly classy Iowa fans, less vitrol and more about the game, lowest ticket price of the 3?

Cons:  Furthest away, mostly boring football, remote location, would be least satisfying victory.

Nov. 26 - OSU

Pros: Top 5 opponent, great rivalry, The Game, likely for the East Division crown, C-Bus is a good city for other things to do, seeing Harbuagh at Ohio Stadium square off against Meyer, should be one of the better chances for victory in years in C-Bus, O'Korn should be clicking by then.

Cons: The worst fans and harrassment, high prices, still will be the toughest of the 3 to win, likely to get pulled over with Michigan plates on my way down.

 

If you could only pick one, which would it be?

Indiana, Penn State, and Purdue rotate off the schedule.  I'm a little disappointed that we have Wisconsin at home the same year that we have Ohio, Nebraska, and (probably) Notre Dame at home ... would've been nice to add another top B1G team to the home slate in 2016 to go along with MSU.
