This map shows each team after the Big Ten split into divisions and separated the teams into East and West. Each state has it's own team, except Illinois has the Illini and Wildcats, Michigan has the Wolverines and Spartans, and Indiana has the Hoosiers and the Boilermakers. The two teams that are furthest from each other are Nebraska (west) and Rutgers (east)

On April 28, 2013, the Big Ten presidents approved a divisional realignment that went into effect when Maryland and Rutgers joined in 2014. Under the new plan, the Legends and Leaders divisions were replaced with geographic divisions. As before, the two division winners play each other in the Big Ten Football Championship Game.

2016 Season Preview

The Big Ten remains top heavy heading into the 2016 season-but their best teams all reside in the same division. Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State are the class of the conference, and each will have major strengths-as well as a couple flaws-as they battle it out for a spot in the College Football Playoff. The winner of the Big Ten East could be the de facto conference champion, though Iowa put a scare into the Spartans during last season's conference title game.

The Hawkeyes are currently the favorites to repeat as West division champs, though Wisconsin and Nebraska should bounce back from unlucky seasons to pose a greater threat. The Big Ten may not be the deepest conference of the Power 5, but its top teams should play significant roles when it comes to the national title picture.

 

 

Big Ten Football Tickets:

You have a number of options when buying tickets, but most schools in the Big Ten Conference are very popular teams, so most games are very hard to get tickets for. Most schools require customers to buy season tickets and make donations to acquire tickets. It is often easier to buy tickets from a secondary source.
