  1. Ohio State
  2. Iowa
  3. Michigan
  4. Maryland
  5. Indiana
  6. Nebraska
  7. Northwestern
  8. Michigan State
  9. Purdue
  10. Minnesota
  11. Wisconsin
  12. Penn State

The entire tournament will be on BTN with the bunny bracket (bottom four seeds) playing on Wednesday. Nebraska will meet the winnter of the Wisconsin - Illinois matchup in the nightcap game on Thursday.

Right now, Nebraska is projected as a #7 seed in the NCAA tournament. Northwestern, who finished right below Nebraska, is a bubble team and will likely need at least one upset in the tourney to hear them name on selection day.
