    Big Ten Tie Breaker Update

    With three teams tied for the Big Ten lead with one loss, the only thoughts on the minds of all three are win and do it impressively to sway poll voters. Well at least that’s the case for Wisconsin and Ohio State who are ranked higher in the BCS rankings than Michigan State. Currently the Badgers’ BCS average is .7688, the Buckeyes’ average is .7148, and Spartans’ average is .6063. Ohio State’s only reasonable chance considering that the Badgers will most likely win against Northwestern, is a complete blow out of Michigan and a close win for the Badgers which sways a few poll votes in the Buckeyes’s favor. But even if that happens, if Sparty losses to Penn State, the BCS rankings would not matter since the Badgers beat the Buckeyes earlier in the year. Michigan State really has not chance unless for a miracle that Ohio State losses to Michigan and the Spartans beat Penn State.
