This B1G title game is as good as it gets. You have national college football implications on the line. BCS National title hopes and Rose Bowl determination is at stake. So as much flak and critique as the B1G receives, and it’s well deserved at times, you can’t ask for a bigger and better B1G title game than #2 Ohio State vs #10 Michigan State. And really how weak is the B1G? Yes, it’s far below the SEC and the Pac 12, but it’s no worse than the ACC or Big 12. It’s not that bad.
ESPN College GameDay, the iconic college football pregame show, will make its final regular-season stop from the site of the B1G Title game, so what does that tell you? They choose the B1G Title game over the SEC and Pac12 counterparts. Michigan State finished with a perfect conference mark for the first time since their famous season of 1966. The Buckeyes are on a school record 24 game winning streak, tied for the fourth-longest winning streak in Big Ten history.
