March Madness: B1G Football Uniform Bracket III

March Madness: B1G Football Uniform Bracket III

We’re off to the semifinals of BTN.com’s Big Ten football uniform bracket, and the upsets continue. No. 5 Iowa stunned No. 2 Penn State and Cinderella No. 9 Purdue is one win away from playing for it all after downing No. 10 Illinois. Also, No. 1 Michigan drilled No. 6 Michigan State to advance to the title matchup, by virtue of amassing the most quarterfinal votes.

See the quarterfinal results and first-round votes. And don’t forget to cast your semifinal vote in this post. The winner plays Michigan.

Why the automatic berth for the Wolverines? With 12 teams in the Big Ten, the quarterfinals consisted of three matchups, which, of course, yields three semifinal teams. So, for the sake of keeping things simple, the uniform that registered the most quarterfinal votes went directly to the title matchup.
