Big Ten Week 5 game picks: Wisconsin and Northwestern on upset alert?

Finally, conference play is about to start. Apparently the nonconference schedule was too easy for our experts. Three writers -- Brian Bennett, Josh Moyer and Mitch Sherman -- went 14-0 on their picks last week and poor Dan Murphy went 12-2 and finished last for the week. Anyway, they're back picking conference clashes, including undefeated Iowa visiting No. 19 Wisconsin and Minnesota traveling to No. 16 Northwestern.
