The Big Ten conference will send eight of its 11 members to bowl games this year. The only teams that did not receive invites were those with losing records -- Indiana, Minnesota and Purdue.
As expected, Wisconsin earned the Big Ten's automatic BCS bid and will play TCU in the Rose Bowl. Ohio State was selected to play Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl, leaving Michigan State on the outside (of the BCS) looking in. Michigan State has a tough matchup with the reigning National Champion winner, Alabama, in the Capital One Bowl.
A seven win Iowa team was paired in the Insight Bowl with a ten win (and 12th ranked) Missouri team. Illinois will play Baylor in the Texas Bowl while Northwestern will play Texas Tech in the TicketCity Bowl (yeah, that's a real bowl game). Michigan didn't catch a break with their bowl opponent as they were selected to play Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. The Bulldogs look like a bad matchup for Michigan, but we'll have to wait and see if Rich Rodriguez can recreate the bowl magic he had at West Virginia.
Here's the official lineup:
Insight Bowl, Dec. 28: Iowa (7-5) vs. Missouri (10-2)
Texas Bowl, Dec. 29: Illinois (6-6) vs. Baylor (7-5)
