2016 Big Ten Week 3 Bowl Projections


Here are the College Football News Week 3 bowl projections, looking at where the Big Ten teams will go.


2016 Week 3 Big Ten Bowl Projections

– 2016-2017 College Football Conference Bowl Tie-Ins.

The winner of the Big Ten East will almost certainly get into the College Football Playoff spot, but the league should do so much more with – potentially – three teams getting into the New Year’s Six.

The Big Ten sends a team to the Rose Bowl no matter what, and in the pecking order, the Big Ten trades off with the ACC on the Music City and TaxSlayer – it’s likely going to be the Music City this year.
