Big Ten Bowl Projections – Week 4


Big Ten bowl projections heading into Week 4. Ohio State kept its spot in the College Football Playoff with the win at Oklahoma, and Michigan State gets a bump after winning at Notre Dame.


Ohio State’s big test at Oklahoma proved to be more like a minor quiz as it went into Norman and handled the Sooners easily. And how about those Spartans? Michigan State is projected to play in a New Year’s Six game after knocking off Notre Dame.

Iowa lost to North Dakota State, but it should recover in time to play in a decent bowl game.

Below is a look at where Big Ten teams could be headed come bowl season.
