Big Ten struggles in New Year’s Day Bowl Games

With Ohio State and Penn State out of the mix with bowl bans, the Big Ten struggles in New Year’s Day Bowl Games.    The conference ends up 1-4 on January 1st despite some thrilling finishes.

In the Capital One Bowl, Georgia and Nebraska trade blows before the Bulldogs open up a late lead and run away for the 45-31 victory.    The Outback Bowl is decided in the final seconds when South Carolina scores the game-winning TD with only 11 ticks left on the clock.   The Wolverines fall 33-28 in Tampa.    Northwestern is the only Big Ten team to come away with a victory, their first bowl win since 1949.   The Wildcats take care of Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl 34-20.    Wisconsin makes their third straight trip to the Rose Bowl but will fly home coming up on the short end of a 20-14 decision to Stanford.    Finally, Purdue barely shows up and puts up a fight versus Oklahoma State in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.   The Boilermakers are blown out by the Cowboys 58-14.
