Apparently, all 7 teams could tie for 1st in the B1G West
There is still somehow a way that all 7 teams could tie for 1st in the B1G West by the end of the season.
Yes, it’s unlikely but it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t happen.
The Sickos Committee on Twitter has released the way this could happen and it starts with Nebraska. The Cornhuskers would have to string together wins against Purdue, Wisconsin, and Iowa, but lose to Ohio State. They would finish 4-5 in the conference, but 4-2 in their division.
Iowa: would have to win against Minnesota but lose to Illinois, Nebraska, Northwestern, and Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes would finish 4-5 in the conference and 1-5 in their division.

Wisconsin: would need to beat Minnesota and Iowa, but lose to Nebraska and Rutgers. The Badgers would be 4-5 in the conference, but 4-2 in the division and lose the head-t0-head against Nebraska.
Northwestern: wins against Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin and losses to Minnesota and Purdue. That would make the Wildcats 4-5 in the conference, 2-4 in the division.
Illinois: wins against Minnesota and Iowa with losses to Rutgers and Northwestern. The Fighing Illini would finish with a 4-5 conference record, 3-3 in the division.
Minneota: wins against Northwestern and losses to Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, and Wisconsin. Again, this team would also finish 4-5 in the conference, but 3-3 in the division.
Purdue: wins against Northwestern and Indiana, but losses to Nebraska, Michigan State, and Ohio State. The Boilermakers would finish 4-5 in conference play, 3-3 in the division.
