Big Ten bowl projections and College Football Playoff predictions after Week 1

The Big Ten has a rich history in bowl games, and the expectations are it will continue in 2023 — we think.

Here at Buckeyes Wire, we keep the tradition going and give you a look at where we think all the teams in the conference will end up when the dust settles on the season.

 and we’re throwing caution to the wind and trying to figure this whole thing out for the preseason.

As it stands, Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State should be shoo-ins for the postseason.

 Others like Iowa and Wisconsin should be no-brainers as well, but others could be on the fence with a game here or there making a huge difference on whether they go traveling for the holiday season.

Keep in mind the scenarios are very complicated with bowl tie-ins and contractual preferences for teams that have not been involved in certain locations,

so we do our best to track it all. We also throw in the College Football Playoff picks as a cherry on top of it all.

Below is a look at the bowl predictions for Big Ten teams and complete playoff picks after Week 1.
