Last season saw a Big Ten team make the College Football Playoff again as Michigan returned to national prominence and made the final four semifinal.

But the conference still hasn't won a national championship for almost a decade, when Ohio State won the first-ever playoff after the 2014 season.

Those two rivals will once again throw some elbows in the East Division race alongside contenders Michigan State and Penn State. While in the West, we should see Iowa and Wisconsin in the mix to earn division honors once again.

What can we expect from the Big Ten this season? Scroll through to see the latest rankings and record projections from the ESPN Football Power Index.

Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season. It uses a combination of analytics, including scores to date and a team’s remaining schedule.

Let's see where each Big Ten team stands this season from worst to first.
