It's felt like the College Football Playoff Committee have been plotting to find a way of getting both Ohio State and Michigan in this year's CFP. Meanwhile, the potential winner of the Big Ten, either Penn State or Wisconsin, will represent the conference in the traditional manner in the Rose Bowl.

It just goes to show just how far this whole CFP Playoff thing needs to get ironed out. Champions really do need to mean something in college football.

Anyhow, ten B1G teams are bowl eligible. Here is the complete list of teams, featuring bowl projections from SB*Nation's Jason Kirk.
