The Big Ten welcomes Maryland and Rutgers into the fold for 2014 and realigned their divisions into a much more logical East and West format. While I was always critical of it, I’m going to miss going through the exercise of trying to figure out who was a Legendary Leader every fall.

Michigan State: The Spartans beat Ohio State in the Big Ten title game last year, but now, they are in the same division. Sparty has the league’s toughest non-conference game when it plays at Oregon on Sept. 6th. Their conference schedule is nice though. Along with the Buckeyes, they also host Nebraska and Michigan. Their other cross-division game besides the Cornhuskers is at Purdue. The Spartans could be a popular pick to win the league again with this schedule.

Michigan: The Wolverines will relive one of its nightmares when it hosts newly-minted, FBS opponent Appalachian State to open the season. They also have road games with all three of its big rivals, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Ohio State.
