Two bowl matchups featuring Big Ten teams are now official, in addition to the Wisconsin-Oregon pairing in the Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO.

As expected, Ohio State will take on Florida in the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl, to be played Jan. 2 in Jacksonville. Think Urban Meyer's name will be mentioned a few times leading up to the game?

Also, the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas selected Northwestern to face Texas A&M on Dec. 31 in Houston.

These selections indicate Michigan will earn a BCS at-large berth, although the announcement won't be official until later Sunday night. It also looks like 9-3 Penn State will fall all the way to the TicketCity Bowl.

A Big Ten team will face Western Michigan in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl on Dec. 27 in Detroit.
