The Big Ten has been wrecking shop this bowl season, even more so than the Big 12. Today, we’ll see whether the league’s top echelon can maintain the league’s perfect record. They’ve got two chances, which also means they’ve got two chances to derp it up.

Meanwhile, the Pac 12 has only won one bowl game, and they’ve had eight cracks at it. This is their last chance. If Washington loses, it will officially be the worst bowl season ever by a Power 5 conference.

No pressure, Huskies.

Why you should watch: Because so much is at stake from a narrative perspective, albeit not a practical one. Because Saquan Barkley is a beast. Because Washington beat UCLA as badly as K-State did. Because it’s the only game on.
