It's a Big Ten battle.

The Ohio State-Penn State rivalry has come alive as of late. The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions have traded wins in back-to-back years on the college football field, and both have gone on to win the Big Ten in each season.

But we're not here to talk about football. No, we're here to preview the matchup between Ohio State and Penn State tonight on the hardwood.

No. 8 Ohio State travels to unranked Penn State to take on the Nittany Lions in a pivotal Big Ten conference game. Ohio State's last loss came at the hands of the Nittany Lions in late January.

Since then the Buckeyes have won four-straight, including a huge win over Purdue. Meanwhile, Penn State rides a streak of three wins into tonight's game.

Despite being unranked, Penn State is the favorite to win, according to Vegas. The Nittany Lions are favored by one point.

ESPN, however, likes the Buckeyes. Just barely.

ESPN prediction for OSU-PSU.

That's about as close as it gets. You can see Ohio State and Penn State face off tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.

Who are you picking to win?
