It's hard to believe that we're already approaching the midway point of the 2013 college football season.
Along with that milestone comes the run-up to the first BCS rankings of the year. That means every team—including those in the Big Ten—will finally get a look at where they stand in the race for a coveted BCS bowl come January.
But before the Buckeyes or Wolverines, or any other Big Ten team, gets too excited about what may be in store for them come January 2014, our Big Ten BCS contenders—the conference's current undefeated and one-loss teams—will need to circle the following opponents on their schedules.
Each of the following five Big Ten teams all possess some combination of weaponry that could spell disaster for opponents looking for a big payoff come Selection Sunday. While a few of these teams could also find their way to a BCS bowl should the stars align for them, it's more likely that our selections will play the role of spoilers, making them perfect additions to our list of Big Ten teams most likely to spoil a BCS contender's season.
