Outback overflowing with Big Ten options

One team not to be discounted is Illinois.

If Illinois wins Friday at Fresno State, it will have recorded victories in four of its final six contests. Of the likely Big Ten candidates for the Outback, only Penn State finished the season strong with wins in four of its final six games. Illinois holds a head-to-head victory against Penn State.

The Illini also have the longest Outback Bowl drought, last reaching the game on Jan. 1, 1991. Northwestern and Iowa have gone the last two years, while Penn State went on Jan. 1, 2007.
