Michigan State and Wisconsin continue to alternate weeks as the experts pick to represent the Big Ten in Orlando this season as Michigan State retook control of the projections. Michigan State (9-1, 6-0 Big Ten) remained perfect in Big Ten play with a 41-28 win over Nebraska last weekend. Jeremy Langford ran for 151 yards and three touchdowns in the win, it was his fourth game this season with multiple rushing touchdowns. The Spartans travel to Northwestern (4-6, 0-6 Big Ten) this weekend.

Wisconsin (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) routed Indiana, 51-3, this past weekend. The Badgers jumped out to a 30-0 lead, and held Indiana scoreless until the 7:35 mark of the third quarter. Wisconsin rushed for 554 yards and six touchdowns as a team in the win. This was the second highest team total for Wisconsin, trailing only their 564 yards they rushed for last year over the Hoosiers. Wisconsin travels to Minnesota (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) this weekend.

South Carolina (8-2, 6-2 SEC) and Texas A&M (8-2, 4-2 SEC) are this week’s favorites out of the SEC to head to Orlando with Missouri and Auburn also appearing in projections. The Gamecocks completed their SEC schedule with a 19-14 win over Florida this past weekend. South Carolina held Florida scoreless in the second half while scoring 13 points of their own in the comeback win. The Gamecocks face FCS-foe Coastal Carolina this weekend before closing out the year against Clemson (9-1, 7-1 ACC). If Missouri loses one of its two remaining SEC games it would send South Carolina to the SEC Championship Game.

Texas A&M sat idle this past weekend following its 51-41 win over Mississippi State on November 9th. The win marked the Aggies final home game in Kyle Field prior to construction beginning on the stadium. Texas A&M returns to action this weekend as they travel to LSU (7-3, 3-3 SEC).

Missouri controls its own destiny in the SEC East. The Tigers have to travel to Ole Miss (7-3, 3-3 SEC) before returning home to face Texas A&M, but with two wins they would appear in their first SEC Championship game.

Auburn (10-1, 6-1 SEC) remains’s projection to appear in the Capital One Bowl. The Tigers beat Georgia 43-38 thanks to a 73-yard touchdown pass with less than 30 seconds remaining in the game. The Nick Marshall pass was tipped by a Georgia defender before falling into the hands of Ricardo Louis who ran it in for the score and win. Auburn can win the SEC West with an Iron Bowl victory over Alabama (10-0, 7-0) in two weeks.
