Big Ten Football

Three teams remain in the running to earn at least a share of the Legends Division title, and two still have an opportunity to represent the division in the Big Ten Football Championship Game. Michigan State has a 6-0 mark in Big Ten play, and a win in one of its next two games would send the Spartans to Indianapolis. Nebraska and Minnesota both stand at 4-2 in conference and maintain hopes for a share of the division crown. Michigan State and Minnesota each hold head-to-head victories over Nebraska, making the Spartans and Gophers the two division teams aiming for a title game berth.

The race for the Leaders Division title and Big Ten Football Championship Game berth is down to Ohio State and Wisconsin with two weeks to play. The Buckeyes are on top of the division with a perfect 6-0 mark in Big Ten play, extending their conference games only winning streak to 14, which is one away from matching the eighth-longest streak in conference history. Wisconsin is in second, holding a 5-1 record in conference action. Since they hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Badgers with a win on Sept. 28, the Buckeyes can punch their ticket to the title game with one victory in their final two games of the regular season.
