The inaugural Big Ten Championship Game will feature a welcome rematch from the regular season as Michigan State and Wisconsin meet again in Indianapolis. The first showdown was perhaps the most memorable conference game of the season, as a 44-yard Hail Mary pass from Spartan quarterback Kirk Cousins bounced into the hands of his former backup Keith Nichol for the winning score as time expired. The loss crushed the Badgers’ hopes for a BCS National Championship Game appearance and set both teams on a collision course for a “double or nothing” showdown with the Big Ten’s Rose Bowl berth on the line.

The No. 1 LSU Tigers (11-0, 7-0 SEC) and the No. 3 Arkansas Razorback (10-1, 6-1 SEC) clash in Baton Rouge in the final week of the regular season. The implications of this game have only increased throughout the season, as both teams remain in the hunt for the West Division title and a possible spot in the National Championship game. A loss could land one of the teams in Orlando in January. This matchup will be a test between LSU’s aggressive secondary and Arkansas’s talented offensive skilled players.

The No. 19 Nebraska Cornhuskers (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) travel to Ann Arbor to take on the No. 12 Michigan Wolverines (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) in a battle for position in the Big Ten Legends Division. With just two weeks left, Michigan and Nebraska are tied for second place behind Michigan State for a chance to appear in the inaugural Big Ten title game. A win this weekend might not earn either team a spot in Indianapolis, but could keep them in the hunt for a bid to the Capital One Bowl.

The Iowa Hawkeyes host No. 17 Michigan State (4-1, 7-2) in Iowa City for their final home game of the season this Saturday. Last year’s 37-6 victory by the Hawkeyes ended the Spartan’s unbeaten streak. With just two games left after this weekend, both teams enter the game with a chance to appear in the Big Ten conference championship game.
