The Big Ten Conference is not receiving much respect from the national media. The highest ranked team for the Big Ten Conference in the BSC rankings is Michigan State at No. 15.
The Big Ten Conference can make a statement to the country by winning their bowls games. Currently, nine teams in the Big Ten Conference are bowl eligible. With a win in one of their two remaining games, Northwestern will be added to that list.
With 10 of the 12 teams eligible for bowl consideration, the Big Ten Conference should be given more respect than they currently receive.
The Big Ten Conference has affiliation to eight bowls (Rose Bowl, Capitol One Bowl, Outback Bowl, Insight Bowl, Gator Bowl, Meineke Car Care Bowl, Ticket City Bowl and the Little Caesars Bowl). I look for the Big Ten Conference to receive at-large bowl bids that would send 10 of the 12 teams from the conference to postseason bowl games.
Each team in the Big Ten Conference has two games left to play and two teams will matchup in the inaugural Big Ten Championship game. Anything could happen in the remaining weeks.
Here is how I see the rest of the season coming to an end for each team that is bowl eligible in the Big Ten Conference, as well as which bowl game I predict the team to play in…..
