I believe Iowa plays neither of those teams, so it would also be nice to not have a rematch. I think that lends itself to a much more interesting game.

Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.

I would assume if either Northwestern or Minnesota won is would be due in part to injuries and quarterbacks not performing among the top three.

Trade Michigan State for either Purdue or Illinois - MSU isn't the traditional power that UM, OSU, or PSU is, but is currently as good (or better) than any of them, and at the very least would be in the mix with Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin most years.I still think the East would probably still have the overall edge with such a switch, but the gap would be considerably narrower.

» 84-46: Nebraska’s record in the last decade. For all the turmoil and teeth-gnashing Husker fans feel over that record, it still ranks fourth in the Big Ten behind Ohio State (104-24), Wisconsin (96-35) and Penn State (86-39).
Look at Wisconsin’s record for a second. Phil Steele’s annual guide compiles a 10-year split for every team, and Wisconsin is better than Florida (94-36), Georgia (94-37), Auburn (92-37), Florida State (92-40) and Clemson (85-44). Nebraska has a formidable, annual challenger in the Big Ten West.
