The Big Ten bowl matchups have been announced. And there are some interesting clashes.
The 2013-14 bowl schedule was announced Sunday night, and the Big Ten received two BCS bowl berths. Big Ten champion Michigan State is headed to the Rose Bowl to play Stanford, while Leaders Division champion Ohio State is off to the Orange Bowl to take on Clemson. Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin also received bowl bids. See the Big Ten’s full bowl slate in this post.
The final Coaches Poll was released Sunday morning, and Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio ranked his team No. 2. The Spartans, the Big Ten champions, came in at No. 4 in the latest poll. Check out Dantonio’s top 10 in this post. Also, see how every coach voted.
Mark Dantonio couldn’t wait to get his hands on his Big Ten championship hat Saturday night. Don’t believe us? Watch the interview below. Trust us, you’ll be happy you did. Now, Michigan State fans can put that championship hat on their heads.
INDIANAPOLIS — Mark Dantonio showed just about every card he had in his hand. Run, pass, option, quarterback sneaks, even a gutsy onside kick attempt that almost worked early in the fourth quarter in a three-point game.
Soon the official bowl pairings will be announced. Here are my last projections. The big change is Ohio State falling from the BCS title game to the Orange Bowl, and Michigan State rising to the Rose Bowl. So, the Big Ten will have two BCS bowl teams but will have to wait another year to win a national title.
