CHICAGO, IL - (WXOW) - They're no longer the Leaders and the Legends divisions.
But the Badgers are picked to be the leaders of the new West Division of the Big Ten in a poll of Big Ten media.
The Badgers had to answer some questions about those expectations at the Big Ten's media day in Chicago.
Of those who picked Wisconsin to win the West, none of them chose them to win the Big Ten title.
Ohio State received the most votes to win the Big Ten title.
Still, the bar will once again be set high in Madison.
"People might say 'you're the favorite because you don't have Ohio State or you don't have Michigan State on your side. Or Penn State. But to me every Big Ten team is a tough team," said running back Melvin Gordon.
"We haven't played a game yet, so I really can't speak on that. We've got high expectations for our team. We're looking to win every game we play. Doesn't matter who we play," said offensive tackle Rob Havenstein.
