I went 2-3 on picking series winners this week.

The big surprises were Michigan State winning the series against Indiana State and the real shocker of Maryland taking two of three at Illinois.

 

Minnesota (11-15, 6-3 B1G) at Michigan (22-8, 4-1 B1G)

Carl’s Predicted Outcome: 2-1 Minnesota

Actual Outcome: 2-1 Michigan

 

Purdue (10-21, 4-4 B1G) at Nebraska (17-9, 7-2 B1G)

Carl’s Predicted Outcome: 2-1 Nebraska

Actual Outcome: 3-0 Nebraska

 

Maryland (15-15, 3-3 B1G) at Illinois (20-10, 1-5 B1G)

Carl’s Predicted Outcome: 3-0 Illinois

Actual Outcome: 2-1 Maryland

It is the second weekend in a row that a team Indiana beats goes on to hurt the Illini the next weekend. Despite a top-25 RPI, Illinois has severely struggled against the common opponents with Indiana.

 

Indiana State (23-6, 1-2 MO Valley, 7-3 vs B1G) at Michigan State (7-22, 0-5 B1G)

Carl’s Predicted Outcome: 3-0 Indiana State

Actual Outcome: 2-1 Michigan State

 

RUTGERS (9-19, 2-4 B1G) at Iowa (16-12, 5-4 B1G)

Carl’s Predicted Outcome: 2-1 Iowa

Actual Outcome: 2-1 Iowa
