Big Ten Week 12 Preview

Fresh off clinching the Leaders Division, Wisconsin (7-3, 4-2 Big Ten) hosts Ohio State (10-0, 6-0). The Badgers will try to recreate the magic of two years ago when they upset an undefeated Buckeye team in Madison and went on to win a share of the Big Ten championship.

No. 21 Michigan (7-3, 5-1 Big Ten) hosts Iowa (4-6, 2-4 Big Ten). Michigan hasn’t lost at home this year but the Hawkeyes won their last meeting in Ann Arbor in 2010.

Still stinging from the loss, Northwestern (7-3, 3-3 Big Ten) must head back to the state of Michigan this weekend when they visit Michigan State (5-5, 2-4 Big Ten). The Spartans have won four straight against the Wildcats but the two teams have split the last four games in the series.

No. 14 Nebraska (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) looks to stay ahead in the Legends Division when they host Minnesota (6-4, 2-4 Big Ten). The Huskers have won 15 straight meetings between the two, dating back to 1963.

Indiana (4-6, 2-4 Big Ten) travels to Penn State (6-4, 4-2 Big Ten). The Hoosiers have yet to notch a win against the Nittany Lions.

Illinois (2-8, 0-6 Big Ten) hosts Purdue (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten). The Boilermakers stopped a five-game losing streak when they won on the road at Iowa last weekend.
