ESPN's FPI predicts B1G Championship following Week 4
ESPN’s FPI predictions have been all over the map so far this season, especially after a wild Week 3 that saw the conference go 9-4.
There wasn’t quite as much shakeup after Week 4, but still some significant upward movement for teams like Minnesota. Here’s how the FPI predictions for the B1G Championship are shaping up after Week 4:
- Ohio State – 57.2%
- Minnesota – 20.2%
- Michigan – 11.8%
- Penn State – 6.4%
- Wisconsin – 2.7%

Ohio State’s odds to take home the B1G Championship this season jumped to 57.2, up from last week’s 51.4%. The No. 3 Buckeyes thumped conference opponent Wisconsin 52-21 on Saturday. The Buckeyes more than covered the spread against the Badgers, which they had failed to do in the previous 2 games, bumping their Playoff stock even higher.
Minnesota also made a significant jump in the prediction percentages, jumping from a projected 8.4% to a 20.2% chance to win the B1G. The Gophers dominating 34-7 win at Michigan State put the rest of the conference on notice-the Gophers are contenders this season.
B1G teams not mentioned in the current week’s list have less a projected 1% chance to win the conference.
