    Fresh off a 2016 season which saw the Wisconsin Badgers win the Big Ten West division and the Cotton Bowl over Western Michigan, things will be a bit different in the upcoming campaign as former WMU coach P.J. Fleck joins the fray at Minnesota. Coach Jeff Brohm brings his run and gun style from Western Kentucky to Purdue and will have quarterback David Blough at his disposal.

    A lot of storylines to follow in the Big Ten West this season, so here are my games to watch out for and my game predictions:



    Key divisional games:

    Oct. 7: Wisconsin at Nebraska
    Nov. 11: Nebraska at Minnesota
