The Big Ten has five bowl games remaining. How does it finish?

Purdue vs. OSU L -Too much offense but I would like to root for Purdue to win
Michigan vs. Scar L - As if I want them to win
Northwestern vs. MSU W - Fitz and the Cardiac Cats finally get this one and gets the monkey off their back. 
Nebraska vs. UGA W - Seems they play better after getting blown out. I think they win not because of their talent but because UGA has drops the ball in the post season again. On the years they lose the SEC title game I think they have gone on to lose their bowl game. 
Wisconsin vs. Stanford L - I hope they lose so that they can be the new team to have three straight L's in BCS games and in RB games! Don't deserve to be there and would be a slap in the face if they won it! Just one more thing to hang over us! 
Wishful thinking is the B1G going 3-2 New Year's Day and 4-3 overall! 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I totally agree with you about Wisconsin... that said, I'm pulling for Barry Alvarez more than I am the program. And maybe Ball, because he's a stud.

I'm going with my heart & my gut on this - they both tell me the B1G beats the odds & goes 3-2 in the the rest of the games. Wishful thinking? Maybe. We'll see.

^^^^^This. I'm alway's positive at the begining of a New Year. 3-2, and that's my final answer.

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

Northwestern is the best chance. 
If they can get Montee Ball going, Wisconsin might be able to pull it out.
I have no hope for the other 3 teams.
If I were a betting man, I would say 1-4.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

1-4 or 0-5

I went with 1-4, too.  Just don't see where the wins are going to come from.  Northwestern has the best matchup, but it's an SEC team on New Years Day...oh and there's that little diddy about them not winning a bowl since the '40s.
Saw a stat the other day that Nebraska has the nation's top ranked pass defense, going up against the Bulldog's pass-happy offense.  At first I thought "maybe," but then I remembered how they get absolutely gashed by any running back with a pulse, and I'm sure Georgia has one.  So, that's a loss.

2-3...if they're lucky

I think the 13 people who voted 5-0 or 4-1 have dyslexia, and really meant 0-5 or 1-4.

The only win I could see is NWern, and even then, the Wildcats' penchant for blowing huge halftime leads doesn't leave me much confidence. Wisconsin matches up well against Stanford, but the lack of coaching staff and Cardinal QB Kevin Hogan will be too much for the Vadgers. 1-4 unless Brady Choke is able to pay off the devil again like he did last year and have every single stinking call go his way. Gurley runs for 200+, Okie State passes for 400+, and the Husker/Boiler games are blowouts.

How good would it be for Ohio State if the rest of the BIG won their games and the national championship really sucked ass. Just sayin

Georgia either stomps Nebraska by 3 or more TDs, or they lose a close one.

I hope South Carolina wins by 28. If M*chigan is within 17 their fan base will get some kind of moral victory from it.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Probably 0-5. NW has a chance, Wisky has a slim chance. Everybody else is about to get railed.
I'd love to be wrong, but I don't think I am.

I'll be stunned if Okie State does not hang 50 on Purdue today.

I see Northwestern and an upset by one of the other teams. So 2-3
