Northwestern is nearing the end of spring football practice looking primed to make a run at the Big Ten Legends Division title this fall.
The Wildcats return plenty of experienced players from a team that won 10 games, including a bowl for the first time since 1949.
Defending Legends champion Nebraska should have a potent offense. The Cornhuskers might need every point it can muster to compensate for a defense that lost eight starters and surrendered 115 points the last two games.
Michigan lost half its starters and is transitioning to a pro-style offense with quarterback Devin Gardner. Michigan State is breaking in a new offensive coordinator and planning for life without Le'Veon Bell.
The focus at Iowa is the quarterback competition. Minnesota returns 10 offensive starters.
