Two weeks of games are in the books, making our job of projecting where each Big Ten team is going bowling only slightly more ridiculously impossible.
A lot of Big Ten teams lost on Saturday, but three of them (Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota) weren't among our projected bowl teams after Week 1. We've bumped up some teams thanks to their strong performances (hello, Spartans and Illini) and knocked others down a peg for their poor results (hello, Hawkeyes and Nittany Lions). Although Northwestern is 2-0, the Wildcats are competing for bowl slots with potentially more attractive teams (Iowa, Penn State).
Here's how we see the lineup at this still way-too-soon moment:
Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO: Wisconsin vs. BCS team
Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: Nebraska vs. BCS team
Capital One Bowl: Ohio State vs. SEC team
Outback Bowl: Michigan State vs. SEC team
Gator Bowl: Illinois vs. SEC team
Insight Bowl: Michigan vs. Big 12 team
Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas: Penn State vs. Big 12 team
TicketCity Bowl: Iowa vs. Big 12 team
Little Caesars Pizza Bowl: Northwestern vs. MAC team
