There's no football this weekend (the Pro Bowl doesn't count), so all sports eyes should be on college hoops this weekend. Let's see what the Big Ten has coming up. All times are CT.
Purdue at Northwestern 3:00 ESPN2
The Boilers have already lost two conference games at home this season, and need to start piling up some wins to make sure they make the tournament. Northwestern has dropped a couple of games since their big win against Michigan St. The Cats are in danger of falling off of the bubble if their conference record doesn't improve.
Illinois at Minnesota 7:00 BTN
The Golden Gophers have only won one of three at The Barn in conference play. A win over Illinois would go a long way to keeping their tourney hopes alive. Illinois would like this win to stay within shouting distance of the conference leaders.
Michigan at Ohio St. 12:00 CBS
Two of the conference leaders face off in Columbus. If Michigan can pull this off it would be a major upset; the Buckeyes have been dominant at Value City Arena.
Iowa at Indiana 5:00 BTN
Which Iowa team will show up: the one that beat Wisconsin on the road or the one that lost to Nebraska at home? Which Hoosier team will show up: the on that beat Kentucky and OSU, or the one that lost to Minnesota at Assembly Hall?
What do you guys think will be the best game this weekend? Any predictions?
