Jerry Palm of has his latest bowl projections out, with only the Big Ten title game left. Can?t imagine things will change much from here on out.


Palm, a Purdue grad who played in the marching band, has 10 Big Ten teams in the postseason, with Michigan, Northwestern, Indiana and Purdue the only schools out.

Palm has no Big Ten teams in the playoffs, but three are in ?selection committee? bowls-up from one last week.

Here is how Palm lines up the Big Ten.

Cotton: Ohio State vs. Arizona

Peach: Michigan State vs. TCU

Fiesta: Wisconsin vs. Boise State

Citrus: Minnesota vs. Missouri

Outback: Maryland vs. Georgia

TaxSlayer: Iowa vs. Ole Miss

Foster Farms: Rutgers vs. USC

Holiday: Nebraska vs. UCLA

Pinstripe: Penn State vs. Duke

Heart of Dallas: Illinois vs. Marshall

See all of Palm's projections.

This would be a fun bowl docket, highlighted by Ohio State vs. Arizona, which is coached by former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez. That would be entertaining, wouldn't it?

Another big-time matchup would be Michigan State vs. TCU in a rematch of the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, which the Spartans won in comeback fashion. That said, don't be surprised if TCU makes its way into the top four.
