Preseason Big Ten Bowl Projections, CFP Predictions – Buckeyes Wire | Hot Mobile Press

The Big Ten has a rich, rich history in bowl games, and expectations are set for it to continue in 2022, or so we think.

Here at Buckeyes Wire, we’re continuing the tradition and giving you a look at where we think all teams will be in the conference when the dust settles on the season, a season that was one of the last before some cataclysmic concussions is held conference teams and affiliations.

We reevaluate games and projects each week based on what we’ve seen, but first we need to have a base to start from, so before the season starts we’re looking into the crystal ball to determine what we might end up thinking every time.

Keep in mind that these scenarios are very complicated with bowl tie-ins and contractual preferences for teams not involved in specific games, so we’re doing our best to keep track of everything. To top it all off, we also throw in the College Football Playoff picks.

Below is a look at bowl predictions and playoff picks before all the fun begins for the 2022 season.
