Big Ten Bowl Tracking

The Big Ten has a fun set of agreements generally designed, after the CFP bowls, to reduce the number of times a team goes to the same bowl. This page records the travels of these Big Ten schools through the lifetime of the conference's current deals (most of which are for six years).
