The B1G has had a pretty good year. Two teams, Ohio State and Michigan, are undefeated in the east division and in contention to make the College Football Playoff. Out of the west, Illinois has been one of the nation’s surprises, despite a recent stumble.

The heated rivals also sport three semifinalists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year award. The Fighting Illini are also represented on the list. The nominations include 18 other players from around the country.
