New B1G team cracks latest CBS bowl projections
CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm is finally giving Indiana some love.
For the first time this year, the Hoosiers cracked his latest bowl projections. For a team that hasn’t been to a bowl game since 2007, that’s newsworthy.
Palm slotted the 4-0 Hoosiers in the Pinstripe Bowl against Duke. That might be a better basketball game than a football game, but that’s still a step up for one of the B1G basement programs.
Of the significant shakeups Palm made was switching Michigan State and Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and Peach Bowl. He also finally moved Northwestern up into a New Year’s Day game.
In all, 10 B1G teams cracked the postseason projection:
Orange Bowl: Ohio State vs. Clemson (College Football Playoff semifinals)
Rose Bowl: Michigan State vs. USC
Peach Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Florida State
Citrus Bowl: Michigan vs. Georgia
Outback Bowl: Northwestern vs. Texas A&M
Holiday Bowl: Iowa vs. UCLA
Music City Bowl: Penn State vs. Missouri
Armed Forces Bowl: Nebraska vs. Air Force
Foster Farms Bowl: Minnesota vs. Arizona State
Pinstripe Bowl: Indiana vs. Duke
