Highlighting the slate is a showdown between Rutgers and Penn State as the bowl eligible Scarlet Knights bring a tough defense to combat a high powered Nittany Lion attack. Elsewhere, Wisconsin hosts Nebraska in primetime in the wacky Big Ten West division.

The full schedule can be viewed below.

Jim Harbaugh discusses meeting with Tony Petitti

While the football is always exciting, there’s off the field stuff to discuss, such as Michigan’s sign stealing allegations.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh once again had to face questions about the situation but with some new information being revealed.

Big Ten commissioner Tony Petitti recently met with the Michigan administration and Harbaugh was asked for comment. He decided to talk about the fight in his team instead, once again saying how a ton of them will be playing in the NFL one day.

“I appreciate your question,” Harbaugh began. “Not allowed to talk about it, not talking about him, really want to talk about the game. The guys were such stalwarts. The comments keep coming about why they’re good, how they’re good. They’re just good. If you know football and you watch our guys play, I’ve said it before, there’s 20, 22, 23 guys that’ll be playing on Sundays next year.

“I truly believe there’s another 30, 35 right behind them that’ll return and others that will be developing. It’s just really good players. If you know football, just watch the game, turn on the tape, that’s why they’re so good. They’re good at it.”
