The votes are in, and we’ve reached the second round of BTN.com’s 2012 Big Ten football uniform bracket. Much like the NCAA tourney, there were a couple early upsets, including No. 10 Illinois taking down No. 3 Ohio State. Not to be outdone, No. 9 Purdue also stunned No. 4 Nebraska. Check out all the first-round decisions. Also, cast your Round 2 votes in this post.
Remember, because the second round features an odd number of matchups (3), the uniform with the highest number of Round 2 votes will get an automatic berth into the championship, while the other two winners will meet in the semifinals.

How they got here: Michigan destroyed No. 12 Northwestern and Michigan State took down No. 7 Indiana.
No. 9 PURDUE vs. No. 10 ILLINOIS
How they got here: Purdue nipped No. 4 Nebraska and Illinois stunned No. 3 Ohio State in first-round upsets.
No. 2 PENN STATE vs. No. 5 IOWA
