Wisconsin Will Take On Penn State In The Big Ten Title Game Next Saturday

Wisconsin and Penn State will meet for the Big Ten title game in Indianapolis next Saturday.

After a wild Saturday afternoon, we've finally got our two participants in this year's Big Ten Football Championship Game. Wisconsin, which had already clinched the Big Ten West but beat Minnesota anyway, will take on Penn State, which knocked off Michigan State to take the Big Ten East. The Badgers and the Nittany Lions could be playing for a College Football Playoff berth, depending upon how the rest of the action across the country shakes out.

Wisconsin will be playing in its fourth Big Ten title game in six years. Penn State will be making its first appearance. Last year's contest was a classic - Michigan State beat Iowa 16-13.

Ohio State, meanwhile, will likely still get a bid to the College Football Playoff, despite not winning the Big Ten. That is, of course, unless the committee wants to move them down three spots after beating No. 3 Michigan.
