The dust has settled for the B1G in bowl season, going 5-4…how about the B1G West going 4-1, though?

-Ohio State finished off bowl season for the conference with a win over Washington last night in the Rose Bowl, but it was a bowl season of mixed results for the conference; a complete no-show by Michigan and Purdue, but the West goes 4-1 with wins against the ACC, SEC, and Pac-12 (looking at you, Northwestern!!)

-How do we define the year now for the conference? Can we use bowl games to make any definitive statements at all? Let’s also make sure we give major kudos to Pat Fitzgerald and Northwestern…down 20-3 at halftime to Utah, they force 5 (!!) turnovers in the 2nd half, and win 31-20 in the Holiday Bowl.
