The Big Ten Conference is the deepest conference in America with five teams making the Top 25 and three teams earning top-five spots in both the AP and USA Today Polls.
Don't get me wrong, the Big East Conference is a close second with teams like No. 2 ranked Louisville and No. 9 ranked Syracuse holding their own in the Top 10.
ESPN.com's Joe Lunardi put out his recent preseason Bracketology and has the Big Ten and Big East each having seven teams make the tournament.
I could even see Iowa or Northwestern being the eighth team from the conference to make the tournament.
This could be the year where you see three Big Ten teams make it to the Elite Eight, which hasn't happened since 2005.
Every week from now until the end of the season I will be writing the Big Ten Power Rankings.
