    TEAM PREVIEWS

    [​IMG]
    OVR: A​
    OFF: A-​
    DEF: B+​
    SPT: B​

    The Good:
    The Buckeyes are loaded on both sides of the line, and have great skill players.​
    The Bad:
    Terrelle Pryor is gone, and that leaves the Buckeyes without a premier QB.​
    Season Outlook:
    Penn State should challenge the Buckeyes for the division title, but Ohio State is too talented.​

    [​IMG]
    OVR: A-​
    OFF: B+​
    DEF: B+​
    SPT: B-​

    The Good:
    The Huskers have one of the best dual-threat QBs in the nation, and a solid defense.​
    The Bad:
    Nebraska will probably struggle against more talented teams without any superstars.​
    Season Outlook:
    This should be the year for the Huskers with a rather weak Legends division.​

    [​IMG]
    OVR: A​
    OFF: A-​
    DEF: B+​
    SPT: B-​

    The Good:
    Penn State is finally the veteran team we've been waiting for, with a solid line.​
    The Bad:
    No truly great QB for the Nittany Lions could put a damper on their division hopes.​
    Season Outlook:
    Penn State will need to get through Ohio State for the division crown, but the Buckeyes might be too talented.​

    [​IMG]
    OVR: B+​
    OFF: A-​
    DEF: B​
    SPT: C+​

    The Good:
    Denard is back, and does he ever have some weapons on the offensive side of the ball.​
    The Bad:
    The defense has some great talent, but quite a few holes at certain spots.​
    Season Outlook:
    Unless the dreadlocked superstar can carry the Wolverines to a Big 10 title, Michigan shouldn't get their hopes too high.​
