First off Happy Thanksgiving everyone, welcome to the best week of the regular season, RIVALRY WEEK! This week will decide who is going to bowl games, who will make the Big 10 Championship Game, and who could be making the College Football Playoff. Entering the last week of the regular season the Big 10 has nine bowl eligible teams. Michigan State is currently at 5-6 and will need a win this weekend to make it. So without further ado here are our Big Ten Bowl Predictions.
Big Ten Bowl Predictions
Fiesta: Michigan vs. TCU
Rose: Ohio State vs. Oregon
Cotton: Penn State vs. Tulane
Citrus: Iowa vs. Ole Miss
ReliaQuest: Illinois vs. Mississippi State
Music City: Purdue vs. Kentucky
Duke’s Mayo: Wisconsin vs. North Carolina State
Pinstripe: Minnesota vs. Wake Forest
Guaranteed Rate: Wisconsin vs. Texas Tech
Quick Lane: Maryland vs. Eastern Michigan
For Michigan State to make a bowl game they will have to defeat Penn State this weekend which seems unlikely. If Penn State scores a win they have a great shot at the Cotton Bowl. Currently the Nittany Lions are sitting at #11 with some room to move up. Of course all eyes will be on Ohio State versus Michigan this weekend. The winner of that game as long as they do not get spoiled in the Big Ten Championship game will be on their way to the CFP.
