Big Ten Bowl Projections – Week 15

Big Ten bowl projections following Championship Saturday. Is Ohio State a lock for the College Football Playoff?

Did Ohio State do enough to make the College Football Playoff?

The Buckeyes were unable to earn a berth to the Big Ten title game, which saw Penn State storm back and beat Wisconsin on Saturday night in Indy. Because the Nittany Lions beat the Buckeyes in the regular season, will James Franklin and Co. get into the dance? And will it be at the expense of Washington, whose non-conference slate could be picked apart?

Meanwhile, the Badgers could be headed to the Cotton Bowl for a date with Western Michigan, with Michigan possibly headed to the Orange Bowl for a matchup with Florida State.

Where will your favorite Big Ten team be going this postseason?
