The Big Ten had eight different teams make the NCAA Tournament, and all but three advanced to the second round following Thursday and Friday’s action.

Here’s how the Big Ten has performed record wise so far and the odds for each team to still win the NCAA Tournament:

The Big Ten had five of their eight representatives advance, but it will be tough to overlook the Purdue loss to Fairleigh Dickinson, the biggest upset in NCAA Tournament history.

However, Indiana took care of business as the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region in addition to the likes of Maryland, Northwestern, Michigan State and Penn State, who all picked up wins in 8 vs. 9 or 7 vs. 10 matchups, a good sign for the conference since those games are usually toss ups.

Here’s where the Big Ten teams stand so far in the tournament:

  • Straight up record: 5-3
  • Against the spread record: 5-3
