Big 10 Championship Football Game History

 
BCS · ACC · Big Ten · Big 12 · C-USA · MAC · Pac-12 · SEC
The Big Ten expanded to 12 teams prior to the 2011 season when Nebraska left the Big 12. That opened the door for a conference championship, which is played at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis. The conference welcomed Maryland and Rutgers in 2014.

Wisconsin won each of the first two Big Ten championships in the underdog role, beating Michigan State in 2011 and Nebraska in 2012. The Badgers claimed the "Leaders" division title both times, but the second instance was by default after Ohio State and Penn State were deemed ineligible for postseason play. After failing to cash as 9 ½-point favorites against Michigan State in 2011, the Badgers destroyed the Cornhuskers, 70-31 as short underdogs in 2012. The 'over' easily cashed both times, hitting by at least 25 points in the first two title games..

In 2014, Ohio State pulled off the first shutout in the history of Power 5 conference championships (55 games), throttling Wisconsin 59-0 despite being a four-point underdog.
