Penn St. opens Big Ten play at Illinois

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) No. 10 Penn State brings its high-powered offense to Illinois on Friday night, heavily favored against a young Illini team that is off to an encouraging start.

The Nittany Lions (3-0) are a 27-point favorite, not exactly a new situation for an Illini team that is used to being the underdog. But Illinois (2-1) nearly upset South Florida last week and shows little fear going into the Big Ten opener for both teams.

Georgia ready for high-powered Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Georgia's defense has been so good this season it has some opposing quarterbacks in awe.

"It's almost fun to watch when you're watching tape," Missouri quarterback Drew Lock said this week. "They're extremely athletic in the secondary. They're not going to let you chuck it deep on them. They fly around, man."

Wisconsin-Iowa could decide Big Ten West

The first Big Ten game of the season for No. 18 Wisconsin and Iowa could end up being the biggest one in the West division this season.

The Badgers (2-1), despite getting upset by BYU last weekend, still look like the class of the struggling West.
