All eyes in the Big 10 world Saturday will be on Columbus, Ohio, where unbeaten Ohio State hosts a Nebraska team coming off a big win against Wisconsin.
But that’s not the only big matchup of the day in the conference. Earlier Saturday undefeated Northwestern travels to State College to take on a Penn State team that has won three straight after losing its first two games of the season.
The Wildcats are 5-0 for the first time since 1962 and head coach Pat Fitzgerald told NCAA Football Insider host Chuck Cooperstein he knows his team is in for a battle on Saturday.
