After a COVID-shortened 2020 campaign, all Big Ten teams will return to playing a full 12-game schedule this fall.

As we get closer to the 2021 season, BetOnline has revealed its updated regular season win projections for all 14 Big Ten programs. Only one team is pegged to win double-digit games: Ohio State.

This isn't a surprise, considering the Buckeyes have won four-straight Big Ten titles. The oddsmakers have set their over/under for wins at 11 this fall.

Right behind OSU is Wisconsin (9.5), Penn State (9) and Iowa (8.5). Illinois has the lowest win total projection with three.

You can see the full list below.

In 2020, Ohio State went 5-o in the regular season with three games declared "no contest" due to COVID-19. The Buckeyes defeated Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship Game and Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal before losing to Alabama in the national championship.

Wisconsin, meanwhile, went just 3-3 in the regular season and 4-3 overall in 2020, but went 10-2 and earned trips to the Big Ten title game and Rose Bowl two years ago.
