Believe it or not, we are now just inside 100 days from Ohio State and Notre Dame doing battle in the ‘Shoe under the lights. It seems like a long time, but remember what you were doing just 100 days ago and you’ll realize that it’ll be here before you know it.
We’ve said it before, but as the game of college football continues to gain in popularity, it has become a season-long deal with season in review pieces, forecasts for the upcoming season, and analysis of everything you can think of. Heck, the other day, I thought about doing a listicle of listicles because — yeah, offseason and all.
Our friends at College Football News are on board with this whole year-round thing too and have been ever since I can remember. I mean, being a website named ‘College Football News’ and all, you kind of have to be, right?
Throughout the offseason, Pete Fiutak goes on a journey to lay out several pieces looking ahead, and one of them projects each team’s win total for the upcoming season. And, since spring is now done, it’s time to check in on that once again.
But we’re not here to look at the entire nation, just the conference your favorite team wearing scarlet and gray likes to mess around in and win more often than not — the Big Ten.
Here is what Fiutak says about win totals for every Big Ten football team in 2022, post-spring observations counted down from the least amount of victories to the most.
