Now that we’re getting toward the middle of Big Ten season and we’re starting to get a feel for how the division races will shape up, we’ll be doing our Northwestern and Big Ten bowl projections each week. Keep in mind, this isn’t based on order of finish; rather, it’s based on which teams bowls are likely to choose, with record, fan base size, recent bowl trips and recent opponents all being taken into consideration. Without further ado, here are our picks.
