But, in the Big Ten...Ohio St
Michigan
Wisconsin
Oregon
Iowa
Penn St
Washington and USC are ahead of us.

Top 26? Pretty good, I'd say. And the chart shows how tough B1G football is.

Regarding non-conference:
Fleck has non-conference wins over Oregon State, Fresno State (twice), Georgia Tech, Auburn, Colorado (twice), West Virginia, Syracuse.

Fleck is also undefeated in bowl games.

Not bad.

Nah. I think the OP is just stating that one doesn't look like the other four. Games like that prove the any given Saturday saying. Stuff happens.

That’s fair. That game wasn’t very fun to attend.
 

AND a Non Conference Schedule Win Leader

The 5 losses:
TCU twice
Missouri
North Carolina
AND wait for it...Bowling Green

3 of the 5 losses against ranked non-BIG team since 2014 (Missouri # 16); TCU (# 2); North Carolina (# 20)).

The glorious victory over # 9 Auburn, the only ranked non-BIG victory since 2014.
Overlooked non-BIG win - Fresno State-2018, finished year ranked # 18.
 

Crazy how high Iowa and Wisconsin are on that list, despite being pretty irrelevant nationally.

Maybe the last couple of years, but Wisconsin has been in the top 10 of the CFP three times in the era, has Orange, Cotton, and Rose Bowl games,. Iowa finished top 10 and was ranked as high as 2 or 3 a couple years ago. But a lot of those wins were from 2014 thru 2019 or so...
