ESPN releases B1G bowl projections after Week 1
Now that we’ve seen everyone in the B1G play a football game, we can properly assess exactly what bowl game each team will be playing in this postseason.
Well, maybe it will take more time and a larger sample size, but it’s fun to guess.
ESPN has updated its bowl projections for the B1G after all 14 teams concluded action on Saturday. There were some pretty interesting projections, too.
Writer Brian Bennett has slated Ohio State to reach the College Football Playoff for the second time in three seasons. He has Michigan making the trek to Pasadena for a Rose Bowl appearance.
Nothing to outlandish so far. But he does have a few interesting projections after that.
Though Wisconsin beat fifth-ranked LSU, Bennett still has the Badgers playing in the Music City Bowl. He is predicting Indiana will make back-to-back bowl appearances with a trip to the Quick Lane Bowl.
When it’s all said and 10, Bennett and ESPN have 10 of the B1G’s 14 teams reaching the postseason this year.
You can see the full list here.
We will see how much this changes next weekend.
