The weekly mock brackets are out, and the Big Ten looks primed for seven bids—at least for now, as Illinois seems to be hanging by a thread. The Fighting Illini appear in three of the four mock brackets I check each week.

A new class of future Big Ten football stars will sign National Letters of Intent today when BTN will air a live, 90-minute Football Signing Day Special at 3 p.m. ET. Host Mike Hall, and analysts Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith will review each school’s recruiting class and evaluate how each team filled its most pressing roster needs.
