Big Ten Not Expected To Do Well During Bowl Season

Posted: 18 December, 2012

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Big Ten spent much of the year as a national punch line. It might get worse during bowl season. The Big Ten could only fill seven of its eight predetermined bowl slots - and each of those bowl-bound teams is currently an underdog. From the five-loss Wisconsin team that still wound up in the Rose Bowl to the 6-6 Purdue squad that fired its coach, the beleaguered Big Ten isn't expected to do much of anything in the postseason. The league went just 1-6 in bowl games in 2008. According to odds makers, things could go even worse in 2012.
