The bowl season is finally here.
The last Big Ten matchup of the season — as always — came in the Big Ten Championship between Ohio State and Northwestern with the Buckeyes taking home the trophy. Now, the conference will be pitted against other conferences to determine who is best.
The Big Ten had 9 of its 14 teams make bowl games. The other 5 teams that didn’t make it were not qualified, as Maryland, Indiana, Rutgers, Nebraska and Illinois did not go at least 6-6.
It’s early, as the games themselves were just listed, so below are the initial betting lines for each of the 9 games. The spreads, over time of course, could change:
Georgia Tech: -3.5 over Minnesota
Miami: -2.5 over Wisconsin
Auburn: -3.5 over Purdue
Michigan: -7.5 over Florida
Oregon: -1.5 over Michigan State
Utah: -8.5 over Northwestern
Mississippi State: -4 over Iowa
Penn State: -7 over Kentucky
Ohio State: -4 over Washington
