With the second weekend of the 2013 college football season in the books, ESPN’s Brian Bennett and Adam Rittenberg have updated their Big Ten bowl game projections. Ohio State is still expected to whip through the conference and earn a coveted spot in the Rose Bowl. Of course, the Buckeyes could remain undefeated and earn a trip to the national title game.
Should that happen, Michigan’s BCS at-large invite would become a trip to the Rose Bowl instead. The biggest jump has to be for Illinois. Coming off a two-win season, the Fighting Illini dispatched a very good Cincinnati team to already match its win total of just two games from a season ago.
