Big Ten bowl projections, College Football Playoff predictions, Week 7

The Big Ten have a rich, rich history in bowl games, and the expectations are for it to continue in 2021 or so we think.

Here at Buckeyes Wire we carry on the tradition and give you a look at where we think all the teams will end up in the conference once the dust settles over the season, one that – and hopefully continues – to COVID-19 mostly drama-free.

We reevaluate every week with games and projects based on what we’ve seen. Week 7 was a big surprise for one of the undefeated teams and a couple of other favorites right at the top of the bowl, so things got a little mixed up.

Keep in mind that these bowl tie-ins and contractual preferences scenarios are very complicated for teams that were not involved in certain games. So we do our best to keep track of everything.

Here’s a look at the bowl projections after week 7 of college football season.
