2012 College Football Schedule: Wolverines and Spartans both in action

Eric Francis

Michigan heads to Minneapolis to take on Minnesota, and Michigan State hosts Nebraska to headline the Big Ten's Week 10 slate of games.

The Michigan Wolverines travel to the Twin Cities to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday, when they'll try to bounce back after a disappointing 23-9 loss to Nebraska last Saturday in Lincoln. Quarterback Denard Robinson will likely start for the Wolverines after injuring his elbow last weekend, but Russell Bellomy and Devin Gardner have been taking extra snaps in practice this week, just in case.

Michigan State will host Nebraska on Saturday, and need a win to have any hope of getting back in the race for the Legends Division. The Spartans sit at 2-3, and the Huskers are alone in first at 3-1. A win would put the Spartans only one game back, but they'll likely need a better performance from their offense to get it.

Here is the full Big Ten schedule (all times Eastern):

Michigan Wolverines at Minnesota Golden Gophers, 12 p.m., BTN

Iowa Hawkeyes at Indiana Hoosiers, 3:30 p.m., BTN

Penn St. Nittany Lions at Purdue Boilermakers, 3:30 p.m., ESPNU

Nebraska Cornhuskers at Michigan St. Spartans, 3:30 p.m., ABC/ESPN2

Illinois Fighting Illini at Ohio St. Buckeyes, 3:30 p.m., ESPN

Off: Wisconsin Badgers, Northwestern Wildcats
