The Big Ten would have one less if Louisiana Tech hadn't backed out of their game with PSU at the last minute to lighten what otherwise would have been a brutal OOC schedule for La. Tech. But I agree, inexcusable.

But even the difference between 1-AA competition that the Big Ten and SEC play is massive:

Big Ten:
Eastern Illinois (9-3)
Indiana State (0-11)
Montana (8-4)
New Hampshire (11-2)
North Dakota State (7-4)
Southern Illinois (9-4)
Western Illinois (5-6)
Youngstown State (8-3)

57-37

SEC:
Jacksonville State (6-5)
Northwestern State (5-5)
Southeast Missouri State (2-9)
Tennessee State (2-9)
Texas State (11-3)
Western Carolina (5-4)
Wofford (6-5)
Western Kentucky (6-5)

43-45

Pretty big difference between 20 games over .500 and 2 games below .500. And keep in mind that 11 of the losses in the Big Ten total come from Indiana State alone.
