2010 Big 10 Predictions

Posted By Adrian Fedkiw On Aug 20 2010 @ 2:08 am In Big Ten | No Comments

Hate it or love it the Ohio State Buckeyes are on top, and they have been since coach Jim Tressel took the reigns.  Since 2002, their National Championship year, the Buckeyes have won at least a share of the Big 10 Conference Title 6 out of the 8 years, and there’s no reason to think it won’t be 7 out of 9 after this season.  Except this year, Ohio State is looking for more than just a Big 10 Crown. 

Heading into the season, the Big 10 looks pretty strong.  While Ohio State is the cream of the crop, there’s a few BCS contenders within the conference.  With Nebraska joining the Big 10 next season, the conference will only get stronger. (and they’ll finally have a title game).
