Week 11: B1G Game of the Week - Can The Wolverines Turn The Corner?

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Each week, BTP will select a "Game of the Week" from the Big Ten.

Each week, BTP will be selecting one Big Ten game among the conference for "Game of the Week" honors. This game doesn't necessarily have to be between certain types of teams, in a certain location, or with championship implications on the line, but rather, this selection is primarily based on perceived competitiveness, watchability, and the amount of attention the game will receive. Essentially, what game should fans most look forward to in the coming week in Big Ten play. With no further wait, here is your game of the week:

Game Of The Week:

Michigan at Wisconsin: Though there are a few really intriguing games this week, this one rises to the top. Not only are both teams quality squads, but both teams are also undefeated in conference play and are hoping to be relevant for the Big Ten title later this year. Along with this, the last few games between the two have been great including the instant classic in Madison last year where Ben Brust launched a heave to keep Wisconsin alive. The Badgers ended up upsetting Michigan in overtime and rushing the court. This year, the tables will be a little turned with Wisconsin being the favorite, but this figures to be a great game.

Honorable Mention:

Wisconsin at Indiana: The Hoosiers have not lived up to preseason expectations or their achievements from last season, but they still have some quality pieces on their team. On the other side, Wisconsin is the lone remaining unbeaten in the Big Ten. Add in that Indiana hasn't beaten Wisconsin in what seems like forever and you have a game that should be very interesting.

Michigan State at Illinois: This game lost a lot of its luster when Illinois went down to Northwestern last weekend, but Illinois still plays pretty well at home and does have some talented guys on their team. On the other side, MSU is undefeated in conference play and have already beaten Indiana and Penn State on the road. This could be a potential trap game for the Spartans and coming out on top will be huge.
