College Football Picks: How writers are picking week 2 Big Ten games

We’re on the brink of week 2 in the college football world, and writers and outlets alike are making their college football picks for Big Ten teams across the board.

The biggest match up of this weekend certainly belongs to Ohio State.

Spotlights are definitely on the No. 2 Buckeyes, as they will play their home-opener against the No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners. The two played last year, and Ohio State drubbed the Sooners in Norman 45-24.

No. 4 Penn State will take on in-state rival Pitt, as the Nittany Lions will try to avenge their 42-39 loss last year to the Panthers. N0. 11 Wisconsin and No. 8 Michigan both have much easier match ups against Florida Atlantic and Cincinnati, respectively.

Here are picks, as made by USA Today, ESPN.comCBS Sports and Sporting News.
