BIG TEN WEST DIVISION
Chip Scoggins’ predicted order of finish (preseason AP rank included):
1. Wisconsin (No. 9)
Badgers have legitimate shot at making College Football Playoff.
Wildcats don’t play Ohio State or Michigan.
New QB but Hawkeyes bring back top-notch offensive line.
Huskers switching to 3-4 defense under new coordinator Bob Diaco.
Unsettled QB situation but running back tandem of Smith and Brooks very good.
New coach Jeff Brohm has big rebuilding project on his hands.
Year 1 of Lovie Smith Era underwhelming. Year 2 might not be much better.
