The Indiana football team is getting ready to show the country that they weren’t a fluke in 2019, but where will the end up in a loaded Big Ten?
The college football season is, hopefully, a little over a month away. The non-conference games have been eliminated from the Big Ten schedule, but so far we still have a football season. This is still good news for football fans, and especially Hoosier fans who have been looking forward to this season.
The Big Ten is loaded especially in the East and theoretically has about three of four teams with legitimate shots and winning the conference. Ohio State is easily the favorite of the group, but Penn State and Wisconsin both look to be very good again this year. Michigan and Minnesota both should be solid also and then you have a bunch of teams that could become this year’s Minnesota. A team nobody is talking about but makes a run.
It should be a fun year, as long as they get to play it and we all hope they can find a way to make it work. It may be a shortened season but it is better than nothing.
To make up for the loss of non-conference games the Big Ten has announced that they are looking to add a 10th conference game. This year all of the Big Ten East teams had five home games so they would all travel to a Big Ten West team for the 10th game.
Rumors are that Michigan State would travel to Nebraska, Michigan to Iowa, Ohio State to Minnesota. If that is true then the Hoosiers would have to travel to Northwestern and Rutgers to Wisconsin. The other two games were are purely guessing as Penn State heads to Purdue and Maryland to Illinois. These are all just speculation but for our predictions, they are the games we are going to use.
So without further ado, we break down our predictions for each division and where they will finish, starting with the West.
