Complete 2021-2022 Big Ten bowl schedule

·5 min read

After speculating and predicting, then tearing it all up and doing the same week after week, we finally know where every Big Ten team will go bowling, Ohio State included.

All told there are nine teams from the conference that made it into the postseason. Three of those teams are in a New Year’s Six bowl game, with one of those making the College Football Playoff (Michigan). It was a fantastic year again in the heartland, and now we get to sit back and begin watching bowl games.

It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. And don’t come at me with there being too many bowl games. How can you argue with more American football coming to you on your television set or streaming device near you?

For the Big Ten, the first matchup occurs on December 28 with the Guaranteed Rate Bowl, and the last one begins on January 1 with Ohio State in the “Granddaddy of them all.” The games for the conference will go as far as Michigan’s plight takes it in the CFP.

Here’s the complete Big Ten bowl schedule for 2021-2022. Get ready for tree trimming, champagne, and football through the holiday season.
