Just not a lot going on in the B1G this week.

Perhaps the most notable result from Week 8 in terms of bowl-projecting relevance was Wisconsin’s win over Purdue. For now, that grants the Badgers a strong likelihood of hitting the required 6-win mark.

Iowa is set to squeak in too, even after a 44-point drubbing by Ohio State. The Buckeyes are still undefeated on the season, a perfect 7-0.

Penn State reaffirmed itself as the No. 3 power in the conference, with Illinois sneaking up behind them. For now, assuming Ohio State is their only remaining loss, the Nittany Lions should be set for a New Year’s 6 bowl. Illinois will get the SEC’s No. 4 in LSU in the Citrus Bowl.

Here’s where things get shaky. Maryland and Purdue are impossible to read. The Terrapins struggled to down Northwestern without Taulia Tagovailoa. A bowl is guaranteed at this point, but where they go is still a mystery. If current trends hold, the Terps will be heading to Nashville.

Purdue’s loss to Wisconsin was a bump in the road in what is a favorable remaining schedule. Purdue went to the Music City Bowl last year, so let’s assume the bowl will want to switch things up.

Ultimately, only 1 B1G program will reach the College Football Playoff (barring a drastic turn of events.) Ohio State will be the favorite until further notice. It will likely all come down to The Game in the regular season finale vs. Michigan.

The B1G’s postseason slate looks similar to last season. The conference will add the Duke’s Mayo Bowl to its lineup instead of the Las Vegas Bowl. Those bowls rotate between the SEC and B1G on a year-to-year basis, meaning a B1G coach will have the chance to earn the coveted mayo bath this postseason.
