Week 4 big ten picks iowa-wisconsin will be packed with emotion inspirational quotes for doctoral students

Prediction: the big question for the cornhuskers is whether quarterback adrian martinez will play. His status is a game-time decision, according to coach scott frost. Reading some quotes this week, I’d be surprised if the huskers put him out against a vicious michigan defense, unless he’s 100 percent. “we’re going to make the best decision with the team in mind and our future in mind,” offensive coordinator troy walters said. Best inspirational quotes for college students the large point spread also seems to suggest the expectation that andrew bunch, who threw two interceptions in a home loss to troy in his first career start, will be at the helm. Whoever is at quarterback, though, look for nebraska to fight to the finish in frost’s first conference game as a husker coach. Michigan 31, nebraska 17 no. 25 boston college (3-0) at purdue (0-3)

Prediction: A fun fact about this matchup: boston college’s most recent loss was to iowa; iowa’s was to purdue. The eagles, 27-20 losers to iowa in the pinstripe bowl, have been pounding teams this season. Star running back A.J. Dillon is fifth in the nation in rushing and BC is averaging 52.7 points (sixth in FBS) and 577.3 yards (11th) per game. Best inspirational quotes for teachers on the flip side, purdue’s season start couldn’t be going much worse — three losses, all at home, by a combined eight points. If the boilermakers weren’t minus-4 in turnovers, they might be 3-0. Maybe this is the week the script gets flipped. Purdue 34, boston college 31

Prediction: how bad was rutgers’ 55-14 loss to kansas last week? Steve politi, a columnist who covers the scarlet knights for the star-ledger in new jersey, tweeted: “this might be the most demoralizing, humiliating, unacceptable loss in the modern history of rutgers football, and yes, I know that’s a high bar to clear.” wow. And now they’re a home underdog by almost a touchdown to a MAC team. I’m probably on an island here, but I’m not ready to bury the chris ash era just yet. Rutgers 24, buffalo 20 minnesota (3-0) at maryland (2-1)

Prediction: after knocking off texas then rushing for 444 yards at bowling green to start 2-0, the terrapins … didn’t score an offensive touchdown and were routed at home by temple. So, it’s anybody’s guess which maryland team shows up for the big ten opener against a P.J. Fleck’s gophers. Minnesota has been playing excellent defense and will be seeking payback for a home loss to the terps in this spot last year. Minnesota 21, maryland 14 tulane (1-2) at no. 4 ohio state (3-0)

Prediction: coming off a big win against TCU and with a trip to penn state on deck, the buckeyes would be in a classic trap spot — not to lose, of course, but to cover five-plus touchdowns. The return of urban meyer, though, to the sidelines surely will add some incentive to display dominance. Look for ohio state to empty the bench at some point, but the buckeyes’ third-stringers aren’t like most teams’ third-stringers. Best motivational quotes for working out ohio state 55, tulane 14 no. 23 michigan state (1-1) at indiana (3-0)

Prediction: the hoosiers have been one of the big ten’s nice stories, with a trio of solid wins, the discovery of freshman running back stevie scott (129.3 yards a game) and the big ten’s no. 1 passing defense. Michigan state, meanwhile, has been underwhelming out of the gates. So naturally, the smart pick here is probably to back the spartans, coming off a bye week, to play with their chip-on-a-shoulder mentality on the road. Michigan state 28, indiana 17 leistikow’s ledger
