The Wisconsin Badgers are headed to the Rose Bowl as the Big Ten's champion for the third consecutive season, thanks to their 70-31 drubbing of Nebraska in the Big Ten title game. It's the first time in history that a five-loss team will appear in the Rose Bowl. The Badgers actually finished third in the Leaders Division, but postseason bans for Ohio State and Penn State allowed them to appear in the title game.
The Minnesota Golden Gophers end the season in last place in the Legends Division, but they will still go to a bowl game after finishing 6-6. The Gophers will face Texas Tech in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston on Dec. 28.
Here are the final Big Ten standings of the 2012 season.
