Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Nebraska Cornhuskers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

National Voting Results

The new era of Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) is upon college athletics. That was the primary focus of national results in the most recent round of voting. Though, having said that, there is one other question at the national level asking fans about the 2021 College Football Playoff team predictions.

That question was in fact the first one up. How did national fans vote on the conferences most likely to see at least one team make the CFP field?

The full results were as follows:

  1. SEC - 97%
  2. Big Ten - 94%
  3. ACC - 88%
  4. Big 12 - 78%
  5. Pac-12 - 25%
  6. Independent - 10%
  7. AAC - 4%
  8. Mountain West - 1.4%
  9. MAC - 1.3%
  10. Sun Belt - 1%
  11. C-USA - 0.9%

Okay, with the College Football Playoff predictions out of the way, it is time to get into the thick of NIL. These are all simple yes or no questions, so I am going to leave it to the SB Nation provided graphics to give you the prompts and answers.

What about yourselves? Do you plan to watch the atrocity of a Space Jams remake because LeBron James is in it this time? Are you more likely to watch it if Adrian Martinez endorses it? If Lexi Sun does? Should any of these athletes have limits placed on how much they can earn on NIL deals? Let us know in the comments!

Big Ten Results

Now the not at all surprising results from Big Ten voters. Who will win the 2021 Big Ten football conference title according to the 14 Big Ten fan bases at SB Nation?

The full breakdown is:

  1. Ohio State (161 votes) - 73.85%
  2. Iowa (13 votes) - 5.96%
  3. Wisconsin (11 votes) - 5.05%
  4. Michigan (10 votes) - 4.59%
