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.
Nebraska basketball broke out a new black alternate uniform Sunday at Creighton. The uniform showcased its share of red, the school’s primary color, too. The “Nebraska” on the front of the jersey was red, outlined in white, as were the player numbers. There also were red accents on the shoulders, waistband and shorts. See the uniform in this post.
After a busy nine-game slate Saturday, there were only two Big Ten men’s basketball games Sunday. Illinois walloped Auburn, 81-62, in Atlanta, while Nebraska is taking on Creighton. Catch up on all of Sunday’s action in this post.
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.
