Where the Terps do catch a bit of a projected break is in their cross-division opponents. In their first two years in the Big Ten, Maryland played Iowa and Wisconsin, both of which won the West division. The Hawkeyes check in at No. 4 and the Badgers are at No. 5 in ESPN's ranking. In 2016, with the Big Ten moving to a nine-game conference schedule, Maryland gets Nebraska (No. 7), Minnesota (No. 9) and Purdue (No. 14).
