Palm has 10 Big Ten teams in bowls, including two with 5-7 records: Nebraska and Minnesota. But there was a report recently from CBSSports.com that says some bowls may go “dark” and not be played because of a lack of 6-6 teams.

Bottom line: Stay tuned on if 5-7 teams will be in bowls.

Last week, Palm had Clemson No. 1 and playing No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl. No. 2 Alabama was taking on No. 3 Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl. That hasn’t changed. And also unchanged is Palm’s forecast of having Iowa play Stanford in the Rose Bowl and Ohio State taking on Houston in the Fiesta in the Selection Committee Bowls.

BIG TEN BOWLS
Indiana: Foster Farms vs. USC
Iowa: Rose vs. Stanford
Michigan: Citrus vs. Ole Miss
Michigan State: Cotton vs. Alabama
Minnesota: Pinstripe vs. N.C. State
Nebraska: Armed Forces vs. Air Force
Northwestern: Outback vs. Tennessee
Ohio State: Fiesta vs. Houston
Penn State: Music City vs. Georgia
Wisconsin: Holiday vs. Utah
