Well today is officially the last Saturday of Big Ten football without Big Ten basketball and there's a relatively solid slate of games today, highlighted by the showdown in East Lansing between Michigan State and Ohio State. Considering both teams are now in the same division, the game will likely determine who represents the east in the Big Ten Championship and is more or less an elimination game for both teams when it comes to the playoff picture. Looks like some good ol' fun for this weekends prime time game.
