BTN LiveBIG: Big Ten dominates a different kind of 'Top 25' ranking

On campuses, in online forums and at sports bars across the country, people are talking about how many teams the conference has in the respective preseason polls, who’s underrated and overrated, and their predictions for bowl season and the second-ever college football playoff.
