Big Ten West

1. Wisconsin
T2. Iowa
T2. Nebraska
T2. Northwestern
T2. Purdue
T6. Illinois
T6. Minnesota

– It’s going to be a really, really tight Big Ten West – after Wisconsin. The Badgers should be even more talented and better than last season – at least offensively – but they have a tougher schedule with trips to Penn State and Michigan. After that, there should be a logjam.

– How fast will Nebraska improve under Scott Frost, and can Purdue reload? Iowa and Northwestern will be fine, and expect Illinois to be far better with all the youth of last season growing up into more of a factor.

– As always, the predictions here are different than the Big Ten Preseason Team Rankings. But with so many decent teams in the midsection, expect a wild, fun, and unpredictable division season.
