Does this surprise anybody? The Big Ten has slowly taken over the world of college football on the field, and now the conference has cemented itself at the top of the television ratings.
It was only a matter of time before the Midwest-based conference climbed to the top. Their television deals were already an indication the networks were anticipating viewership in the Big Ten was going to keep growing.
It’s a lot of fun to be a Wisconsin kid, and watch the Big Ten just totally throttle the world of college sports. I get way too much joy out of it.
