The regular season is over. All that’s left is the Big Ten title game, which could alter the Big Ten bowl projections at the top of the pecking order.

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema understands a lot of people believe his Badgers don’t deserve to be playing in the Big Ten championship game. Asked if he’s insulted by the sentiment, he says he’s not.

It’s time for my final regular season Big Ten Player Rankings. This week, Le’Veon Bell and Jordan Hill reenter the list following jaw-dropping individual performances. See all the latest changes in this post. Remember, this feature ranks the Big Ten’s top six offensive and defensive players. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.
On our final point/counterpoint, we’ll deal with the question that all Big Ten fans care the most about: who will finish in last place?

Alas, they can’t meet in the conference title game, as the Buckeyes are on probation. But Ohio State finished 12-0, including a 63-38 win over the Cornhuskers in Columbus earlier this season. So, the Buckeyes must be best, right?
