ESPN: Time Is Now for Big Ten's Best Four

In the latest college article on ESPN Insider, Brian Fremeau explains how someone from the Big Ten's big four (Iowa, Penn State, Ohio State, Wisconsin) has a very good opportunity of running the table and making the BCS championship game.

"The numbers are encouraging for the Big Ten. Penn State's trip to Alabama on Sept. 11 is the only nonconference game that should cause any of these four Big Ten teams trouble. If Ohio State, Iowa and Wisconsin can remain unscathed, each should be in a strong position once the BCS standings are released in October. From there, it's a matter of holding serve against everyone else in the conference."

Not giving Arizona much of a shot against Iowa then? Vegas has them a tossup, and you've got Iowa rated #15 visiting the #35 team. Seems like a reasonably close matchup by your model, though maybe I'm misunderstanding?
