Urban Meyer’s quest to lead his Ohio State Buckeyes to this season’s Big Ten Championship and possible berth in the final BCS National Championship faces its second major test in two weeks. Last Saturday, the Buckeyes knocked-off Wisconsin 31-24 in a game that ended as a PUSH to pretty much seal-up a spot in the Big Ten title game out of the Leaders Division assuming they go on to beat Illinois, Indiana and Purdue.
It’s the final year for the Legends and the Leaders in the Big Ten Conference. Last year both Penn State and Ohio State were ineligible for postseason play, but only Penn State is ineligible this season. The Buckeyes went 12-0 in their first year under Urban Meyer last year, and expectations are as high as ever in Columbus.

Even for teams that have to feel good about their chances of getting into the NCAA Tournament, there are always potential roadblocks right up to the very last game of the year that are trying to keep them out of the dance. On Thursday, the Ohio State Buckeyes face one of those stern tests when they take on the Northwestern Wildcats in Evanston.
The Big Ten season starts for college basketball betting fans on Thursday night, and the first game for the Michigan Wolverines could prove to be a massive challenge on the road in Evanston against the hungry Northwestern Wildcats.
This game might not get as much attention as most other games, but it has the potential to be one of the tightest games of the day. Mississippi State and Northwestern are two teams that have some weaknesses, but they both play fundamentally sound football. Let’s take a closer look at this interesting under the radar matchup.
The Northwestern Wildcats and the Iowa Hawkeyes hope to both keep their dreams of the Rose Bowl alive on Saturday when the two meet in a crucial Legends Division showdown in the Big Ten.
The Hawkeyes are positioned better for the Legend’s Division title right now at 2-1 in conference play, but they really haven’t played any of their big time tough games this year.
The Big Ten schedule continues for the Northwestern Wildcats, as they hope to keep their perfect season alive when they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in college football betting action this Saturday.
The Wildcats are one of the two teams that are still unblemished in the Big Ten, and with a win on Saturday, they might be the only team left in the conference that still has a ranking in the Top 25 as well.
