Latest Big Ten Bowl Previews News

Cotton Bowl preview: No. 5 Ohio State vs. No. 8 USC

The sting of being left out of the College Football Playoff has subsided for Ohio State, as the Big Ten champs look for a strong finish in the Cotton Bowl vs. USC, a fellow college football blueblood. In fact, many feel the Buckeyes’ clash with Pac-12 champ Trojans is one of the best postseason matchups.

Fiesta Bowl preview: No. 9 Penn State vs. No. 11 Washington

Just four points separated Penn State from a perfect record and a Big Ten title game berth. Alas, the Nittany Lions landed in the Fiesta with a matchup vs. Washington, a playoff participant last year. No doubt, this is one of the most enticing bowl matchups in the postseason landscape.

Orange Bowl preview: No. 6 Wisconsin vs. No. 10 Miami

Wisconsin had its hopes set on making the playoff for the first time, but the loss to Ohio State—the Badgers’ first of the season after a 12-0 start--in the Big Ten title game killed those dreams. But landing in the Orange Bowl vs. Miami offers a good opportunity to close the season with a victory vs. a marquee foe.

Pinstripe Bowl preview: Iowa vs. Boston College

This will be Iowa’s first trip to the Pinstripe Bowl and its first meeting with Boston College, as the Hawkeyes look to cap what has been a season of ups and downs. There was the high of pounding then-No. 3 Ohio State, 55-24, and the low of losing on the last play vs. then-No. 4 Penn State, 21-19.

Music City Bowl preview: Northwestern vs. Kentucky

Northwestern will be making its eighth bowl trip in the last 10 years, as Pat Fitzgerald continues to take this program to higher levels. This year, it's the Music City Bowl vs. Kentucky, in a battle of Wildcats.

Dienhart: 2017-18 Big Ten bowl matchups at a glance

The bowl matchups are set. Eight Big Ten teams will be bowling, including three in New Year's Six Games (Cotton: Ohio State vs. USC; Orange: Wisconsin vs. Miami; Fiesta: Penn State vs. Washington).

Check out Tom Dienhart's All-Big Ten Bowl Opponent Team

Big Ten teams will play in 10 bowl games. And, if you scan the rosters for all 10 Big Ten foes, you can put together a pretty impressive All-Big Ten Bowl Opponent Team. See BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart's top opposing players inside.

Outback Bowl preview: Iowa takes on SEC East champ Florida

This will be the third time Iowa and Florida will meet in the Outback Bowl. The teams split their first two meetings, the Hawkeyes winning to end the 2003 season and the Gators prevailing two years later. They've met only one other time, in 1983.
